    Next Big Paleo Thing?

    I feel like the community has stagnated. Maybe more accurately, my interest has. We seem to rehash the same things and argue over petty details.

    I'm a big picture guy. The 'Paleo' way of examining was a total shift in my awareness of my lifestyle. I'm now sitting here wondering if there are any more shifts to be made now? Is there another step? Another, next big thing for Paleo?

    Yes! Live to be 100. Ready, set - GO!
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American

    In other words, no.

    You know, Knifegill's post is more profound that it would seem at the first reading. First you find paleo/Primal, then you adopt it, then you meet goals, all the while being absorbed and entertained and educated and paradigm-shifted and whatnot, and then once you have met your own fitness/health goals and read most of this blog, there is..... boredom??

    When enough paleos/Primals reach the ripe old age of 100 without massive medical intervention, or losing their memories and/or bladder control, the unconvinced world will have no choice but to take notice - it will be inescapable. I really intend to work for the day that my local newspaper interviews me on my 100th birthday, in my own home, and I answer in a steady voice - I DID IT WITH PRIMAL! (Or whatever the relevant terminology will be 55 years from now.) That ain't sexy so much - but isn't it the point and core of why we do what we do? To live a long and healthy life? At its most basic level, why is that not enough?

    In the meantime there are so many dragons to slay that I am having a hard time seeing how you could be bored (but I accept you are because you say you are). It is perhaps time for YOU to go out into the world and do something concrete to support the kinds of foods and lifestyle that the next generation should be thriving on and then reporting it back to US here to stimulate conversation, instead of appearing to wait on someone else to supply the entertainment for you.

    I can think of several dozen ideas right off the bat for real-world engagement - stuff that pisses me off that ought to be fixed. I'm sure you have peeves as well - that is your starting point.

    I will take a crack at a really good question, but I will slightly change how I answer it.

    Big Thing #1: The eroding power of the AMA and its increasing need of gov't healthcare to stay relevant.

    Big Thigs #2: The demand placed on land from a migration of grains to protein & vegetables.

    No. That's it. Just live life like you know you should, and eat the way you know is healthy. No news flashes, no fireworks, just go on with life.

    You could explore edible wild plants
    EatTheWeeds - YouTube
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    My interest was revitalized when I followed the #AHS12 tweets over this past weekend. Lots of interesting information being passed around. I'm waiting for more information, but apparently bacon grease is really useless. That is sad-making! Anyway, I'm now more interested than ever before about sharing information to make sustainable and organic farming a more common practice. I'm really hoping I can pick up some classes here and there. Eventually, I'd love to volunteer at booths for those kinds of events to help teach other people how to educate their friends and family about this way of living.

    That's an example for what I was referring to. Making farming more sustainable and organic is an action plan, and it's an improvement to what we have now.
