  • 3 Reasons Why I'll Teach My Kids to Run Marathons
    I don't write about it often, but I'm a father to two wonderful little kids — a four-year-old boy and one-year-old girl. The obvious question (that people always ask) is whether my wife and I are raising them vegan, and the answer is a qualified yes: Yes, but we don't want to choose this lifestyle Read more » (...more)

  • 7 Days of Camping, Running, and Raw Food at the Woodstock Fruit Festival
    It was a few years ago when I first heard about the Woodstock Fruit Festival, a week-long event (back then) put on by ultrarunner and Fruitarian Michael Arnstein. Camping, swimming, running, hiking, games, bonfires, demos and talks — the most notable of which, for me, have been Mike's ultrarunning talks that I watched on YouTube. Part 1 Read (...more)

  • Does Animal Protein Cause Osteoporosis?
    For most of the last century, a prevailing theory within the field of nutrition was that by eating acid-forming foods such as meat, we were, in essence, at risk of peeing our bones down the toilet. And no wonder! Experiments dating back to 1920 showed over and over that if we add meat to our… (...more)

  • Vegans Drink Almond Milk Because It's Cruelty-Free–Not Because It's Hip
    One of the big food stories this past week was Tom Philpott's article in Mother Jones on almond milk. Philpott deplores the current popularity of almond milk because 1) It's not an especially nutritious food and, 2) Almond-growing is not friendly to the environment.

    Vegan diets aren't dangerous. However, people with irrational ideas about nutrition are.

But it has nothing to do with veganism. Why is it that journalists can't figure (...more)

  • Low-Carb (But Not Paleo) Diets for Vegans
    Low-carb diets are nothing new. The first book promoting carbohydrate restriction for weight loss, Eat Fat and Grow Slim, was published in 1958. And I can remember the wildly popular The Drinking Man's Diet of the 1960s (which restricted carbs but allowed as many martinis as you wanted). Carbophobia gave way to fatphobia in the 1980s [...] (...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.
