Bone Broth, the Healing Soup From the Paleolithic Diet (Also a Vegetarian Alternative) | Sat Hon

From ancient time, one of the foundations of the Paleolithic diet is “bone broth,” the clear, concentrated protein-rich elixir that Chinese herbalists and chefs have known more or less forever as healing stock. Our ancient Ice Age ancestors probably made theirs by sinking fire-heated river stones into the stomachs of mammoths they were able to hunt in a cooperative effort, and the subsequent festivity and banquets for the hunters and tribes would be this bone soup, a communal broth …

Paleo eaters need to start grappling with issues of sustainability : TreeHugger

Promoting a meat-centric diet for health reasons is one thing, but such a diet has planetary repercussions that can no longer be ignored. The Paleo diet is all the rage within the CrossFit community. For the past two years, since joining the local gym, I’ve heard countless conversations about why we need to eat like our Paleolithic ancestors, ditch the horrible carbohydrates, and eat meat, meat, and more meat. “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you bacon and that’s pretty …

The 7 Types of Vegetarians, Because There’s More Than One Way Not To Fry a Fish | Bustle

Here’s a light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek look at vegetarianism: I dipped my toe into the vegetarian pond the summer before my sophomore year of college. I had just seen Food Inc. for the first time (an emotional cinematic experience for my 19-year-old self) and was ready to make a Life Change. That summer, I was still pretty unsure about this whole college thing. I had yet to experience that “ah ha” moment the brochures all promised, and I was searching for friends, an academic focus …

Charting a family history can take many forms. Sometimes it’s a series of handwritten letters or boxes of strange objects in the attic, occasionally it’s drawn up in a family tree. And while my own family has lost most of its material possessions over the years, our stories have been kept intact through recipes and food. At the start and heart of every story is a place called Gujarat. Although I’ve never lived there, the spirit of this place exists in most aspects of my daily life: I think …

But with Japan hosting the Olympics in 2020, and the associated influx of vegetarian …

Be Vegan, But Do Not Impose Please – The New Indian Express

I agree with the sentiments expressed in this article. We all need to learn to respect the belief and customs of other cultures. No body is exclusively ‘right’. Taking this hardline approach is what has led humans into wars and persecutions. It is time for respect.  I know I will invite a lot of public flak for slacking off the idea of those jute-wearing tree-hugging types, the kind who bleed internally every time a venison is served up in the world. Yes, that was a stark …

CONSULTANT urologist Dr Robert Wan has said that a vegetarian diet is best for men trying to minimise their risk of developing prostate cancer, but, convincing them to go vegan is not the easiest of tasks, so men are instead asked to reduce their intake of red meat and increase products that have proven to be beneficial to the prostate.

Can Vegetarians Go Paleo?

Bacon, steak and more bacon is often associated with the much-hyped Paleo Diet , which is undoubtedly having a moment. Can vegetarians take part in a diet that puts so much emphasis on meat? It is possible. Our Paleolithic ancestors were very much about the meat, yes, but vegetables, nuts and seeds were also part of their whatever-we-can-get-our-hands-on meal plan. The basic premise of this stone-age eating is to eat like hunter-gatherers did 10,000 years ago. They didn’t have farms, …

GP’s view: Vegetarianism

Is vegetarianism healthier than a carnivorous diet? Dr Cindy Pan gives her view. The most honest answer I can give to this is, “It depends”. If being a vegetarian means you eat a lot of vegetables and fruits as well as plenty of lentils, wholegrain cereals, nuts, tofu, eggs, low-fat dairy products and other nutritious foods, which make up for the lack of meat and fish, then yes, this could result in a very healthy diet. But it would not necessarily be healthier than a similar diet …
