Slim is Simple, but its not easy.

It seems like a lot of the Paleo/Primal sites are linking to the Slim is Simple website and interviewing Jonathan Bailor. Melissa McEwen was not impressed and wrote her opinion on Bailor's approach. I started listening to his podcasts yesterday. I like his presentation. I think he does a really good job in laying out why it is important to eat and exercise Primal. But I have to agree with some of McEwen's points. My opinion is this:
Slim is Simple, but its not easy. Why? Because it isn't enough to understand what and why you need to eat a Primal diet. Humans have to much other baggage that goes along with food. I do encourage you to check out Bailor's material, he is great at presenting the science behind the paleo/primal way of eating.

Gobekli Tepe

This latest information about Gobekli Tepe from the History Channel is now on Youtube.

Five Part series on Gobekli Tepe

They now think that worship came before farming. This is a really interesting series. Earlier they speculated that farming made Gobekli Tepe possible, now they think the finds at Gobekli Tepe have turned history around.

More Paleo Food Adventures

Just like the goat milk, I've never really tried sardines and canned oysters. I'm not much on heavy fish smells. I've always avoided sardines and oysters. Much to my surprise, I was able to eat both sardines and oysters. The sardines weren't much stronger than tuna. I had them in mustard sauce and Louisiana hot sauce. The oysters were just boiled.

So I'm looking forward to eating both of these seafood treats in the future. I keep hearing on podcast that the best way to get my Omega 3 fatty acids is from food, not supplements, so I'm giving it a try.

Become Superhuman Live Event

I will be going to Ben Greenfield's "Become Superhuman Live Event" in March. I'm excited about meeting Ben and the other speakers at the event. I'll post some pictures and give a review when I get back from the event.

Goat Milk

I have avoided drinking goat milk my whole life. I remember from a very young age people saying that goat milk was strong and gamey. So I had never tried it. I had had some goat cheese in the past and it was indeed strong. But I think it is a delicious taste not an offensive taste. So after listening to Ben Greenfield talking about the benefits and advantages of goat's milk the other day on a podcast I decided to try goat milk. I didn't know of any place to pick up fresh local goat milk so I picked some up at the grocery store. It was pasteurized but I bought it anyways. It was yummy. Yes it does have a strong dairy taste than cow's milk, but I find it to be pleasing to the tongue. My next mission is to source some local goat's milk.
    My post workout shake lately has been Upgraded Protein in goat's milk. I think the combination is really tasty.
