I first met Jen and her husband (then fiance) Devin at the Ancestral Health Society meeting in Berkeley, California in 2014. Their enthusiasm for everything Paleo was infectious. And, their newly created online store containing only a carefully curated collection of Paleo foods was amazing! It continues to be a one-stop-shop for Paleo goods, hence the name OneStopPaleoShop.com! Even though I felt super plugged into the community, Jen introduced me to new Paleo and AIP foods, which she continues to do to this day Jen is forever on the hunt for the newest, most innovative, and delicious Paleo goodies, snacks and pantry ingredients. I have deep respect and admiration for Jens mission to serve our community. Weve become friends over the years in addition to collaborators, starting with creating an 100% AIP section of OneStopPaleoShop and now, as co-founders of Strength in Food. When Jen first shared her story with me, her personal journey to this passion for providing an invaluable service to the Paleo and AIP communities, well, the only words I can think to describe it are heartbreakingly inspirational. Ive begged Jen to write her story as a guest post for ages, and Im honored and grateful to now be able to share it with you.
Im Jen, and you might know me as the co-founder of One Stop Paleo Shop. My husband Devin and I, along with our partner Chris, have been serving the Paleo community through One Stop Paleo Shop since 2014. You might know that earlier this year, we partnered with Dr. Sarah Ballantyne to bring even more resources to the AIP community through the AIP delivery service Strength in Food. But today Im going to share something Ive never talked about publicly before: how losing my mom to cancer changed my perspective on stress, informed the way I approach health, and ultimately inspired Strength in Food.
Lets break it down by parts of the day: Morning, afternoon, and evening. Some adjustments may have to be made: some people like to walk, jog, or work out in the morning, whereas others like these activities in the afternoon or evening. Other factors that come into play are your work schedule, travel time to and from work, and what type of employment you have (physically demanding, etc.)
I highly recommend reading articles I wrote before on some subjects that may be used to accompany this article, such as how to build your own home gym, and also how to count what physical labor you perform as a type of workout time.
After being asleep for around 8 hours, your body is going to need energy upon arising (hence the word breakfast that comes directly from break fast, or cessation of the nightly fast). If your workout/exercise is in this time frame? Youll need to fortify yourself with a protein shake (with your amino acids), or a BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) formulato condition yourself and prepare your muscles with nutrients prior to the work being performed.
Vitamins prior to exercise are a mixed bag, with some camps saying not to take them and others to take them. Personally, I do not take them before a workout, and well address th...
The end of the summer garden is always bittersweet for me. I miss my daily fresh cut lettuce but I also love the falling leaves and bright reds and oranges of autumn. Luckily, those fallen leaves are more than just pleasing to look at. In this helpful guide, well walk you through a few easy ways to use your fallen autumn leaves as zero waste and cheaper options around your place.
One of the best sustainable and organic ways to help prepare your garden is to add a mulch, and the beautiful fallen leaves of autumn are a great way to this. According to Ready Nutrition, in the gardening community, leaves are huge. When they are composted they become known as black gold, a nutrient-rich material that can be used in a multitude of ways in the garden.
The life cycle of a leaf begins when a tree makes its leaves in the spring. The tree concentrates all of its energy and nutrients into making the leaves because the more leaves there are, the more photosynthesis can occur. When the leaves drop in autumn, they create a ground cover for the trees to conserve moisture. As the leaves decompose, they provide the tree with nutrients and resupply the depleted soil with microbes. The roots of trees can then absorb the nutrients and minerals via the soil in order to create even more leaves the next spring. Its a unique life cycle that can be taken advantage of.
To use your leaves as mulch, youll want to start by shredding them. If you dont have a leaf shredder, Gardeners suggests running over them several times with a lawn mower after a good layer has blanketed the ground. Shredding one leaf into several smaller pieces does a few beneficial things. It increases the surface area, giving microbes many more places to work and it will prevent the leaves from packing together into layers that wont let water or air penet...
In this episode, Stacy and Sarah go beyond diet as a way to prevent or manage diabetes, exploring why Paleo and AIP lifestyle factors like activity, stress management, and sleep are critical components. Sarah also shares a list of her top nutrients picks for improving insulin sensitivity.
Your Action is needed with the FDA
A Citizens Petition was filed in July 2018 by the Americans For Homeopathy Choice (AFHC) as a response to the FDAs December 2017 issuing of the Draft Guidance Drug Products Labeled as Homeopathic: Guidance for FDA Staff and Industry to replace the CPG 400.400. The FDA has posted the Petition and opened a comments docket site. Comments about the petition can be made until December 1, 2018 at
There are currently about 600 comments. With your help, the goal is to have 1000 comments before the December 1st deadline.
The Citizens Petition is a stop-action maneuver to protect consumer access to homeopathy. It halts any forward action by the FDA in applying the Draft Guidance until the issues in the Petition have been resolved. This Petition is the work of AFHC and their attorney, Jim Turner, with input from many members of the homeopathy community. It is a timely action, since Senators Hatch and Connolly, who wrote letters of support to the FDA before the Petition was filed, have received replies from the FDA that it is moving ahead with the Draft Guidance. The FDA made this decision despite several thousand submitted public comments, three in-person meetings from AFHC homeopathy consumers, and direct contact from congressional representatives urging the FDA not to discard the CPG 400.400 by substituting a risk-based approach to evaluating homeopathic medicines.
Please follow the instructions below to submit your comments in support of the citizens petition.
You can read the Citizens Petition and the AFHC rationale for filing the petition on the AFHC website at:
This piece will cover the topic of cortisol, a chemical that has far-reaching effects and is activated by stressors, such as danger or stress in general (both physical and/or emotional). We are then going to detail a couple of herbal adaptogens that are effective against cortisol and stress in general. Lets jump into it!
Firstly, an adaptogen (if you recall from previous articles Ive written) is an herb that assists the body in minimizing stress and its effects. It is important that you keep this term in mind, as it is a tool you will need for your herbal supply kits and naturopathic aids. Stress can take the form of emotional stress that is brought about by a dangerous, painful, or uncomfortable situation we must deal with.
Dealing with stress is normal on a daily basis. Physical stress can be brought on by illness, injury, or from rigorous and/or excessive training and exercise. For both types of stress, we must turn our focus on cortisol. What is it? Basically, cortisol is produced by the adrenal cortex: part of the adrenal gland situated upon the kidneys that are also responsible for the production of adrenalin.
Since Ive probably bored you already, lets cut to the chase. The adrenal glands secrete cortisol (also referred to as hydrocortisone), a hormone that helps to regulate the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. So what? you may say. So, during times of danger, your body secretes this as part of the sympathetic-parasympathetic response to help provide you with the impetus you need to pour on the energy and speed and get away.
Theres a catch, and it returns to cataboli...
Korin Miller says that apple cider vinegar might actually help
Let's be honest: Heartburn is a relatively tame term for your chest and throat feeling like they're
literally on fireand when you have it, you'll do anything to get it TF gone.
So it's totally understandable why you might turn to some home remedies to extinguish that fireSTAT. One that's been making the rounds: drinking apple cider vinegar (ACV)...really.
I know what you're thinking: ACV kind of burns to begin with, so why on earth would I want to torture myself more? But there actually might be something to this. Read more

Are you thinking about living a zero-waste lifestyle? If so, you should understand that it is more than just a trend. This kind of lifestyle challenges the unhealthy habits of consumers that ultimately lead to health and environmental decline. It encourages the use of alternative reusable solutions instead of continuing the heavy dependence on plastic. 
What you do or dont do each day matters intensely, and it has an impact on your overall wellbeing. There are a few habits you should pay most attention to and work into your daily routine if you want to experience long-lasting happiness. These behaviors will help reduce stress and allow you to feel less

Industrial agriculture is one of the most unsustainable practices of modern civilization. The bigger is better food system has reached a point where its real costs have become readily apparent. Like water running down an open drain, the earth's natural resources are disappearing quickly, as industrialized farming drives air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, rising carbon emissions and the depletion, erosion and poisoning of soils. The long-term answer, however, lies in the transition to sustainable, regenerative, chemical-free farming practices, not in the creation of food manufacturing techniques that replace farms with chemistry labs, which is the "environmentally friendly" alternative envisioned by biotech startups and its chemists.

Ready Nutrition guys and gals, this article is being posted to address questions posed by one of the readers, as well as any others who might want to know about batteries for use with solar panels. The main thing is to understand this is an overview and will give you the basics to make your own choice when it comes to choosing the right batteries for the job. Lets get into it!
First of all, when you charge up a battery and then use it all up (until it is drained), this greatly reduces the batterys longevity. Depth of Discharge (abbreviated DoD) is the capacity of a battery that has been usedand there is an optimal level for best performance specified by individual firms. The higher the DoD (usually expressed as a percentage), the more you can utilize before it uses its charge.
A 15 kWh (kilowatt hour) battery with an 80% DoD means that you can safely use up to 12kWh of power before you have to recharge it again. Seems simple enough, but in times of need people allow it to go beyond the DoD and then this decreases the life of their battery as well as its effectiveness. That power rating for your battery is the kWh (kilowatt hour) figure here. This power rating refers to the amount of electricity the battery can deliver one time/all at once.
The reason this is important with solar panels? A battery with a low power rating, yet a high capacity can deliver power over a protracted period of time for some tools or appliances that you need. You have to figure out the cycleand this is an amount that is estimated numerically in your warranty. A cycle is just that: the cycle of when you charge up a battery and then drain it out with use. Then we need to take into consideration round-trip efficiency...the amount of power you will be able to use, as opposed to what you feed into your battery for storage.
An example would be a battery with a 70% round-trip efficiency may have 10 kWh worth of juice pumped into it, but you can only use 7 kWh of that electricity. There are a lot of factors that contribute to this round-trip efficiency: the quality of your battery, the number of times you drained it do...
Have you ever wondered why you should start your own garden when food is readily available at grocery stores? What about those who would love to be self-sufficient to the point of living off the food they can grow on their own land? The simple answer is yes, this is possible, but it will take hard work and dedication.
Most Americans firmly believe its impossible to be self-sufficient, and those values are all but permanently engrained into their minds from a young age. Even people who know that organic agriculture is just as productive as industrial agriculture often think you need to have acres and acres of land to grow all of your own food. But that simply is not true. According to the Small Footprint Family, applying certain techniques and principles can get you set on the lifetime journey of potentially being able to grow all your food on as little as a quarter of an acre! Even people in most suburbs could give this a try!
Obviously, how much food you need and can grow will depend on a variety of factors, space being just one of them. You will also need to take into consideration the size of your family and how much food they actually require. A large man will eat quite a bit more than a 5-year-old girl, however, that girl will also grow to consume more. These are a few factors to keep in mind when beginning to consider self-sufficiency. You should also consider the climate in which you live.
In the 1970s, research by John Jeavons and the Ecology Action Organization found that 4000 square feet (about 370 square meters) of growing space was enough land area to sustain one person on a vegetarian diet for a year, with about another 4000 square feet (370 square meters) for access paths and storage. The math works out to a garden plot around 80 feet x 100 feet (24m x 30m). But that is only the beginning.
Tourtiere is a French Canadian meat pie dish, and one that was a staple of my childhood. There are regional recipes (and much debate over which versions are the most authentic), but they are generally made with a mince of pork or veal with potatoes, mirepoix and simple seasonings (my mom used bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, and/or savory in hers). My moms tourtiere was the basis for my Tourtire-Inspired Shepherds Pie recipe. So, whats the deal with salmon? To be honest, I didnt realize that salmon tourtiere was a thing until I was scouring the internet for ideas on how to best use some leftover steelhead trout I had in my fridge. And, what I discovered was inspiring: while you can certainly use hot-smoked; freshly steamed, baked or poached; or leftover salmon or trout for this dish, its actually most commonly a way to spruce up some canned salmon!
The idea of turning inexpensive, nutrient-dense (bones and all!) canned salmon into a warm, comforting and delicious meal inspired my creativity in the kitchen! And, move over tuna casserole, this dish is packed with nutrition and my whole family loves it! You can make it as a meat pie (double crust) or as a pot pie (as shown). Oh, and did I mention that its AIP?!?!?! Yeah, that happened too!
I recommend wild-caught salmon in BPA-free cans that includes skin and bones, which you can easily get from OneStopPaleoShop.com or ThriveMarket.com.

Keonis experience on the Wheat Belly lifestyle was life-changing.
Not only did he lose 84 pounds, but he reversed numerous health conditions and was freed from prescription medications. And he has discovered a new freedom of spirit and attitude in realizing just how great you can feel by following this lifestyle.
Keoni Butcher, Tracy California: I was obese. I couldnt hold a conversation without having a coughing fit, and every joint in my body ached.
I weighed 242 pounds, and I had been struggling for years and years, and Im always in the health food store, and trying to find this thing and that thing, and nothing worked, including the doctor. Until one day I was in a health food store, and as I was leaving the store, a fellow was coming in and I said excuse me sir, and he said Hold it right there.
He says Ive got something to tell you. You know youre in this place to be healthy right? I said yes, I am. He said Well, Ive got to tell you something. and he pointed at the guy at the cash register, the owner, and he said That guy gave me a book to read, and changed my life.
That book was Wheat Belly. My weight started coming off, a pound a day, for almost a week 6 pounds in a week and then 20 pounds over 40 days. Oh, and what happened to my joint pain? I can sleep more at night. My sinuses are clear. I didnt need to put nasal medicine or steroids in my sinuses anymore. My other ailments started going away.
You know I love to cook. I love to barbecue. I love slow-cooked meats brisket ribs. And then theres other things, like pizza that Dr. Davis tells you how to make. Havent even had to go without pizza. So I try post a lot of recipes, to help people
Health restoration starts in the kitchen; not in a drive-through. You know youre not the only one in...
