We have been talking about starting a low-carb/high fat blog for months. When we are cruising aboard our boat, we have no internet access, so it has been an impossible dream. This winter we are back on land for a few months and we have much to share. We’ve been reading a lot and refining our choices about how to use food as a tool to live as long as possible, as free from illness as possible. Our very low carb, high fat diet that is also free of grains and PUFAs is not novel any longer, though we still get questioning looks from the folks we meet. The momentum has shifted and the internet is carrying the message, building speed, toward a diet based on our ancestral genes. Call it primal, paleo, evolutionary, or cave man. It’s all based on the awareness that the conventional wisdom of the past 50 years has failed miserably to bring us the robust health we all seek. The wisdom of our ancestors, who possessed abundant health, is the place we need to start. Only by questioning the dogma repeated endlessly by our doctors, our media, and our government can we save ourselves from a slow suicide by diet.
We hope to share some of our nutritional discoveries– those that have become second nature to us and those that we are currently implementing. We may post a recipe now and then but our food has devolved into extremely simple fare. Nearly every day, we seek to uncover enlightening information and new sites devoted to the investigation of diet and health. These we will post for your exploration. We hope you will come to value our small contribution to the grassroots movement that strives to tell the truth about what keeps us healthy or makes us ill.
