Paleo Book Giveaway!!!

As some of you may know, I’m moving into a yurt soon. That means shrinking from 3,000 square feet to 300 round feet. And that means getting rid of ish! Let’s be honest—it sucks to move books. And now that I’m over four years into this Paleo thing, it’s time to admit that I’ll never […]

Cultivating the Well-Adjusted Male

As many of you probably know if you read more responsible Paleo bloggers than me, Paleo f(x) went down last week, April 11-13, in Austin, Texas. It was the usual amazing hoopla, with friends, food, and fun. This was my fourth Paleo gathering, so I won’t retread all the ins-and-outs, but suffice to say, if […]

Dear Mother Earth News, Try Harder Next Time

Below is a response I’ve sent to Mother Earth News. It really is my favorite thing to read these days, but after last issue’s love letter to homemade bread and now a poorly-written article called “Wonderful Wheat” that tried to take a hard line against the anti-gluten movement, I had to speak up. ——————————————— Dear […]

Adversity Training, Part 2 — Kids

In Part 1, I went into some ways you can stop being a whiner. Now, it’s time to explore why that’s important—so you don’t raise whiny children. Remember this? (No? Did I just date myself?) Well, it’s unfortunately true in most things. Not necessarily in this straight-forward of a way, but let me explain. Just […]

Adversity Training, Part 1 — You

We are a bunch of softies. Yeah, I’m talking to you. But present company included too, as in, me. What am I talking about? Oh, just how we are far less resilient, adaptable, and mentally tough than we were just a few generations ago. This phenomenon, this softening of the human creature, is at the […]

Food Self-Sufficiency

As I type this, I’m gazing out my window for the second day in a row at over 6 inches of snow that’s fallen. It’s beautiful and fun, obviously. But since I live on a steep hill, it also comes with some challenges. Yesterday, when the storm started, I made a quip on my personal […]

Back to the Land

Yes, I’ve become a cliché. I’m a dirty hippie girl in a little hippie town, and now I’m going to live in a yurt and get back to the land all 60s-style. Patchouli can’t be far behind. Too bad I hate patchouli. But the rest is true. I can’t remember how it all happened, but […]

Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

Recipe: Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

I’ma just say this right upfront: I can take no credit for this recipe. I’m merely sharing what was a delicious baby born of the combination of this recipe’s flavors and Melissa Joulwan’s pork shoulder carnitas technique. See, I was looking for something new for my pork shoulder, and I had played around with that […]

Fan Mail

I received a letter today and I thought I’d share the correspondence. Not to embarrass anybody or anything, but because someone took the time to send me an honest account from their perspective and I responded in kind. Letters like this get to the heart of what we’re doing and why. We don’t have all […]

APB: New Feral Dispatches for Your Eyes and Ears

A few announcements. First, I’m excited to unveil my new Tumblr account, We’re Living in a Sci-Fi Novel. This endeavor allows me to quickly and easily show everyone the signs I see everyday that the future is now. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s depressing—that’s the world we live in! You can also submit your own […]

Wandering Days

In an extended fit of nostalgia, I’ve purchased several stories about Frances the badger for my daughter. I remember the books from my childhood, and I’m glad Edie enjoys them too. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised to find that they don’t insult children’s intelligence and they tackle sticky issues head-on, both of which are all […]
