Getting Closer to Caveman: Surprising Things You Don’t Actually Have to Refrigerate

In our modern society, we’re used to special storage rules from one food item to another. Fruit juice, for instance, and many canned goods can sit in the pantry forever but will need to be chilled once opened. Potatoes kept in the dark, grains kept in dry conditions, and a whole slew of things that need to be kept cold at all times or we risk that unpleasant smell of rotting protein. However, as time passes and food poisoning scares stack up, we’ve gotten into the habit of simply throwing everything in the fridge. But is refrigerating sweet potatoes really

Dr. Cordain Interview for Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

I was recently interviewed by a reporter representing “The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics” which was formerly known as “The American Dietetic Association (ADA)” http://www.eatright.org/. This organization certifies registered dietitian nutritionists in the United States.

14000 Year Old Bread: Exciting Discovery, but is it Game Changing?

Science is a constantly changing and evolving field. That’s why we live in a world of “theories” and avoid the term “fact.” After all, even Newton’s LAW of gravity was disproved. So, it’s exciting when a discovery is made that updates or challenges our theories. And lately the media has been abuzz because that’s exactly what a team led by Dr Amaia Arranz-Otaegui did with our understanding of bread. Analyzing food remains in a 14,000 year-old fire pit left by Natufian hunter-gatherers northeast of Jordan, Arranz-Otaegui’s team found charred remains of bread-like food. [1] Before this discovery, it was believed

Getting the Most Out of Summer with the Paleo Diet

The Paleo Diet and summer are made for each other. Ripe vegetables line the stalls of farmers markets and co-ops alike. The pull to head out for a hike or swim is strong as the sun reaches high in the sky. Farmers Markets and CSAs Farmers markets spring to life in the summer months. Local, organic produce is generally more nutritious than food that has traveled hundreds of miles from mass-produced mono-cropped plots. Improved soil health and reduced travel time typically enhance the nutritional value of the fresh produce at farmers markets. Local Harvest is a great starting point for

Paleo Tuna Poke Bowl

How does a poke bowl sound right about now?   Let’s start with what it is, exactly: Poke is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as a main course (1). When out and about, it can be tough to find viable options that will fit into your authentic paleo regime, so when something does come across our radar, it’s easy to jump right in. But before you pick up your chopsticks, it’s worth taking the time to consider a few key factors. In this case of the poke bowl, let’s call them the

Are Fish Good For Us and The Planet?

That has been the essential question I have been asking myself for the last decade during the writing of what is now a trilogy of books about seafood and the ocean. Each of my books has examined this same question from a different angle and along the way my thinking has evolved considerably as I’ve come to know people on the cutting edge of fishing, marine conservation and aquaculture. In my first book, Four Fish: the future of the last wild food I decided to look at the split between wild fish and farmed fish. 100 years ago, nearly everything we

Coconut Oil: The Ultimate Fat, Or Completely Terrible for You?

        Coconut oil – one of the most popular fats in the modern American lifestyle. Exploding from obscure product to true phenomenon, this tasty treat is also extremely controversial. At the same time that coconut oil saw a huge increase in American consumption, related products (like coconut water) also greatly expanded in popularity. For example, coconut water on its own is now a $300 million dollar per year industry. For a product that barely existed (in terms of sales) a decade ago – this is truly an overnight phenomenon.         But back to coconut oil. It has been called a

Can the Ketogenic Diet Improve Cancer Therapy?

Interest in the ketogenic diet (KD) is booming. For example, a “ketogenic diet” topic search on Google Trends shows searches have increased ninefold during the past two years. This is remarkable, considering the KD has been around since the 1920s, when it was first introduced as an epilepsy treatment. So why are people suddenly so keto-curious? And why are establishment watchdogs attacking the KD, like US News and World Report, which in January, 2018, ranked the KD dead last on its “Best Diets” list?[1] The answers to these questions probably involve the KD’s recent success in treating a variety of
