How to Make Your Own Beef Tallow or Lard

Organic Beef Lard I have just made my own beef lard.  I made it from organic, grass fed animal,  beef fat that I purchased from my butcher. The beef fat needs to come from a grass fed animal not an animal  finished in a grain feed lot.  Fats that come from animals fed grains are not healthy animals.  When their faeces are tested  they have way too much of the bad bacteria and way too little of the good.  Just like us they cannot do well on grains and this affects their fat.  Their natural … Read more…

What is Leaky Gut? aka Intestinal Permeability also called Gut Dysbiosis?

Meditation: Is It Good For Anything?

There is a new study out about meditation and it has been proven to be a very good thing indeed.   It appears that meditation measurably changes the brain for the better even when not meditating. I have been meditating on a regular basis for quite a few years and I can vouch for it's ability to help my sense of well being and my ability to care for others in a healthy way.  Meditation is not about not thinking.... The practise of meditation is about becoming as aware of what you are … Read more…

Why is going on a Paleo diet like childbirth?

Why is going Paleo like childbirth? Because we forget how bad it was to do the change over! Maybe not for a 20 or 30 year old but once you get to be 40 or 50 and onwards then the change over from a glucose burning body to fat burning body so be a bit hard.  The older body finds the adaptation much harder. I was reading my old diaries from exactly 2 years and 7 months ago and I gotta tell you at the beginning of this diet, I felt bad.  I was  pretty darned depressed.  I had started the … Read more…

Finale of the Italian odyssey: The Evolutionary Alkaline Paleo diet

Is the world's population evolving or devolving?  How much is our new SAD responsible for the what I see as the world's  de-evolution? I am asking myself these questions as we are on our way home after being in Italia for the last 6 months and am sitting in Bangkok International Airport.  We just ate by necessity a rather sweet meat and vegetable dish at an airport restaurant.  Everything is sweet in Thailand it seems. Till now I thought that the Thais' have been spared the SAD results … Read more…

Italian Odyssey 5: Feminine Leadership 5 Day Workshop: Yikes the food!

I used to go on quite a lot of retreats in the past.  About six months ago it occurred to me that I would no longer be able to participate in one of my favourite retreats.    Why? Because the meals are all vegetarian.  My retreat leaders believe that eating meat is not right for spiritual growth.  Wow,  I am excluded simply because I cannot eat  grains and pulses that are a substantial part of the fare provided. And now I am here in this wonderful location in Italy, at this wonderful Feminine … Read more…
