  • Weekend Reading, 4.19.15

  • Practice Makes Perfect: Being a “Difficult” Eater
    In December of 2014, the Human Research Council published a study on current and former vegan/vegetarians. The results were not totally surprising, but they were a little disheartening. In a cross-sectional study of over 11,400 vegans in the US, about 70% of those who had tried vegan diets were found to have stopped being vegan. [...] (...more)

  • Vegan, Gluten Free Leek and Asparagus Quiche
    Last week, as I was sharing my basmati rice, cardamom, and pistachio porridge, I mentioned that my breakfasts have been a little formulaic lately.

  • Spiced Sweet Potato Hummus

  • Peanut Butter Tempeh
    This recipe started as an attempt to make a vegan version of butter chicken.  It tasted great and I thought I had created the perfect vegan non-butter non-chicken.  But when I walked past an Indian restaurant and smelled real butter chicken, I realised I had not created vegan butter chicken at all.  However what I … (...more)

    This blog focuses "on issues related to both veganism and paleontology, my two biggest passions; I live by one and am working towards a master's degree in the other. It may seem a strange combination, but hopefully you'll come to see otherwise by reading this humble blog. In my mind, both subjects converge in their connection to issues of climate change, evolution, human health, and H. sapiens' impact and place in the web of life. I think you'll find that using those two concepts -- veganism and paleontology -- as lenses can be the key to a wide range of interesting and vitally important subjects; hence, the title of this blog.

  • Cannibalism: Another Missing Link In The Paleo Diet
    Look, there's Science!TM to back up my month of cannibalism: Homo habilis used stone tools to de-flesh one another's skulls. So did archaic Homo sapiens. And there's lots more right here. There are some pretty good, if imprecise, recipes available with a quick Google search, too. Though I'd appreciate some reader recipes, (...more)

  • Cannibal For A Month
    In honor of Alex Jamieson's recent conversion, I have decided to listen to my body, too. Starting tomorrow, I will be cannibal for a month. I mean, I appreciate the compassionate motives of all those wonderful people in the world who just can't bring themselves to eat other people. But I can't live a lie anymore. I've craved this for years. (...more)

  • Farewell, Anonymi
    In an attempt to cut down on the number of Anonymi posting here, I have changed the comments settings to require a registered Google or OpenID avatar. I know it's not foolproof, but I want to hold people to a modicum of accountability for their comments. (...more)

  • Paleo Parasite Profile 1: Giardia lamblia
    It's been nearly a year now, so I'm no longer sure whether it was Plant Positive or me who first brought to light the connection between parasitic infection and low lipid profiles in primitive human populations (I mentioned it briefly in my post about grain blamers). But if there was ever a contest between us, he won it last week by posting an excellent (...more)

  • New Outreach Posters (Be fair! Go vegan!)
    Two new posters from Jo and me. For those who are concerned about this sort of thing, the approximate representation of the U.S. grade level needed to comprehend the text for Flesch Kincaid is 2.79 (so, just below third-grade reading level). The Flesch Reading ease is 85.64%. (...more)

  • Is veganism healthy?
    As an abolitionist, I promote veganism because animal use is unfair. However, one of the common questions about and objections to veganism is whether veganism is nutritionally sound or healthy. It is important to understand the question of health as a vegan generally, as well as it place in the education process.  Sensational stories (...more)

  • Being funny (and why it's important)
    As is often the case with my blog, I try to teach other advocates.  I try to teach them not only how to be better advocates (which strikes me as kind of a smaller endeavour), but how to be better persons (which is often herculean).  But for all those vegans who have, hours afterward, think "I shoulda said!!!" a blog on how to be funny (and (...more)

  • Abolitionizing the debate: Francione moves the public and the advocacy community left
    In no small way, 2011 has been a year that has witnessed a lot of movement in animal advocacy.  Francione's work continues to surge in popularity with advocates.  Even five years ago, there were not all that many abolitionists.  Now there are probably several hundred, perhaps thousands, active worldwide.  Active advocacy does not (...more)
