    Good find.

    HOWEVER -- if anyone's doing Paleo for the sake of just "being healthy" then F-that noise if ITEOTWAWKI comes along.

    To prep, go with hi-cal, low-space, long-term, IMHO.

    No doubt, USMC. I still believe in steel cut oats, rice and peanut butter and canned soups and pintos. I will add some of the list he has, though. Real Maple Syrup goes a long way as does honey and salt. The lard thing is interesting. The tequila makes perfect sense too.

    I'm not sitting on my laurels on the home garden anymore either. We'll have fun, but we will also spend more time and resources on stepping up preps.

    Pemmican? High in saturated fat, almost no vitamins/minerals. I don't get that one.

    I didn't realize liquors counted as paleo

    Tequila is about the only alcohol I have seen allowed both in the Primal diet and by fitness folks.

    Is Tequila on that list because the frat boys who espouse the paleo diet like it or because it is derived from a non-grain source? I'm having a hard time figuring out why it would be differentiated "nutritionally" from any other hard spirit.

    IIRC, it's exactly that. It's not grain derived. Of course, I would add that it needs to be 100% Agave to comply. Even Jillian Michaels allows it.

    What is the rationale though? Alcohol is a horrible "fitness/survival food" no matter what the source. Is wine, mead, cognac, rum, and cider "approved" as well? Seems like they just want to run with their theme a bit beyond logic.

    Buy a pig or two. Maybe a flockachickenz. That's paleo-prepping to the max!

    You can trade it for other resources. Rum is made form sugarcane, so I don't believe it to be paleo friendly; mead from corn, again, not paleo friendly.

    Not a big fan of the whole 'paleo' thing... just so you know where I'm coming from.


    I'd chop his list down to 5, 4, 3, and 2. The others are (in my fantasy world anyway) either redundant, have better alternatives, or are too hard to store effectively (despite his claims to the contrary)

    Never heard of the paleo diet. Learn something new everyday.

    Mead is made with honey, so according to that list at least it is the PERFECT paleo food :p

    And if the alcohol is just for trade, why limit yourself to tequila? Anyway, if the intent is just to be "paleo" I'm not sure any kind of distilled spirit would make sense, but whatever. It just sounds like some folks are running with the theme a bit far, sorta like that blood type diet nonsense. I'm just wondering if there is an actual biochemical difference between tequila and whisky (residual gluten from the wheat, whatever) that would actually make tequila a "healthier" spirit than a grain based one.

    3 weeks doing the Paleo, I lost 14 lbs. It's worth it.

    Most people is doing the Primal, it is more loose than Paleo. You could have few of dairy but still no grain, sugar, and etc.
