Another one in the Primal Cooking for Men series – easy, paleo, and scalable so that it can be frozen
It seems Kurt Harris has decided to call his approach Archevore. I am not sure whether this is replacing Paleo 2.0, or whether Archevore will be his flavor of Paleo 2.0, like Primal Blueprint is Mark Sisson’s. (UPDATE: from what I understand it is the latter – P2 is the framework, and AD is his flavor of it)
Man is not the only animal to drink other species’ milk. It is however the only one to discuss whether this is healthy or appropriate.
Before I start – I am not trying to argue in this post whether or not milk is good for you. My personal view is that it is good for you unless you are lactose intolerant, but I respect that other people have other views on this topic, and I am not trying to convince them otherwise.
What I want to achieve in this post though is to address three arguments that are commonly brought forward by the opponents of milk, and that, I will argue here, are – even though (partially) true – not relevant in this context. Those arguments are the following
- Humans have only herded for x-thousands of years which, in evolutionary terms, is not enough time to adapt

I dont hate cooking – not always at least. I do hate cutting food into cute, evenly sized pieces though, so whenever I am in charge of canapees my wife swears she will divorce me. I dont do them anymore.
But whilst I do enjoy cooking, I would classify this as a treat: something to be enjoyed in moderation and savored. So for the other days, my favorite recipe is: put the frozen pizza in the oven and take it out when it is ready. Oooops – pizza is not not Paleo, and not even Primal. Houston – we’ve got a problem!
I did partly manage to overcome this problem though – I keep collecting more and more recipes that would qualify as fast-food (in the strict sense of the word – no effort to prepare, even whilst you are checking your iPhone) and that are nevertheless healthy. So without further ado, please find the first of many in my series Primal Cooking for Men – Roast Beef Continue reading
I have just posted a presentation on my website which lays out the way to get in shape after a long hiatus – enjoy!
Firstly, a particular thanks to Tim and PaleoErin who pointed out some very good books, notably Mark Sisson’s “Primal Blueprint” and Gary Taubes “Why we get fat” respectively. I have now finished both of those books, and finally things come together for me. As always in those kind of situations I ask myself how I could be so blind – the point is that none of those books did really contain anything that was new for me. It was just that I had not managed to piece the puzzle together earlier on – and with hindsight, the reasons are very obvious: Continue reading
