  • I just got a portable bike repair kit and a spare tube. Borrowing a bike from a friend and looking forward to driving less and riding more.

    On a side note: bikes are really damn expensive. Haven't owned one since i was a kid and man, things sure seem to have changed. Thankfully I have a friend who was happy to lend me one of his for the time being while i give the whole thing a try.

      Helluva lot cheaper than a car though...

      • Oh most definitely, and a lot more satisfying. One thing i am realizing is that when i am riding to and from the gym i need to leave something in the tank for the ride home. Riding a bike takes a lot more care than driving, and certainly a lot more effort. All in all, I am really enjoying my first foray into cycling for transport.

          • I just bought six pounds of this stuff : Crio Brü and Crio Beans are Rich in Antioxidants, Minerals and Natural Energy - Healthy Chocolate for Healthy Living

            It is a coffee substitute that is basically roasted and ground up cocoa beans but you brew it just like coffee. They have six flavors and I couldn't decide so I bought one of each.

            I heard about it from Dr BorkBork (bless her) on the latest coffee wars thread in the nutrition section.

              • Nothing too exciting, but I bought a crap-ton of nuts (filberts, raw almonds), a quart of shredded coconut, a pint of raw pumpkin seeds, and a giant jar of raw honey... yet all I went to the store for was some canned pumpkin... whoops!

                      Here's another site that has this

                      Chocolate Alchemy - Brewing Cocoa

                      And another
                      Drink Choffy – Healthy and Delicious Brewed Chocolate


                      I bought the Cocoa River from Amazon and it's good. It was only an 8 oz package of already ground beans, but I was lazy and I didn't have to enter all my info. I may go to the Crio Bru site so I can get the one lb bags.

                      • I bought a glass tea kettle, so I'll finally know when my water is done boiling (instead of using a small pot and forgetting about it). $10 on Amazon, free 2-day shipping with my Prime trial.

                        • Just put a deposit on half a cow (local, grassfed, 100% organic) and a whole hog (range fed, local, organic). I'm giddy with excitement. I can't wait to fill my freezer.

                          • I just put in an order for a whole lamb (all cut up of course). My CSA where I usually buy lamb says they will not have any more until spring so they are offering this as a one time thing. Stocking up for the winter. It's a good thing I really like lamb.

                              I love having an electric kettle. I never would've thought to buy one but my husband was raised in England and, for him, it's a must-have stock kitchen item that you can't do without. Once I got used to it, I can't see going back.

                              They boil really quickly and shut off when done. Plus they don't take up real estate on your stove. My understanding is that they also use less power for the task, too. I have one that just boils, but these days they make ones with temperature settings. When mine dies, I'll get one of those. It would be nice to have a little lower temperature for stuff like coffee and green tea.

                              Oh, and my last paleo purchase? Meat. Must be meat.

                              • I just bought a new PURPLE spatula from La Crouset. They also had lost of purple cookware, but I held strong and walked out the door with just the one new toy
