  • Slow food (and Paleo) Guide to Calgary and Lake Louise This is a straightforward post to complement my longer spiels about my adventure to Skoki Lodge. Both Calgary and Lake Louise are fantastic whole food destinations. So many of the places I checked out during my stay banged on about 100-mile-radius produce, pasture-finished meat and eating nose to tail etc. It was super refreshing. As more

Remember, up until quite recently a grain-based diet was more
  • Coconut and cheese biscuits (plus 3 more coconut flour treats) I’m coming to terms with coconut flour. I wrote about the stuff a few weeks back and have been experimenting since.

They’re (good) fat more
