One of the friends I have made while creating this site is James Burnette of Survival Punk.
While we share a strong DIY ethic, we do have a lot of differences.
Most notably in the areas of fitness and nutrition… However, while out working on the land James offered me some of a Paleo Food Bar he developed.
Jame’s Paleo food bar is a mixture of 4 ingredients – Lemon, dates, coconut oil, and shredded coconut.
While I much would have preferred a burger, I can see where a paleo ration bar has a use in preparedness or survival. While, I don’t like coconut, it tasted pretty good.
Watch the embedded video to hear James talk about his bar and why he created it the way he did.
My wife has experimented a little with paleo diets as she has worked to get healthy. I still am not convinced any diet is better than just eating a balanced diet and working hard physically.
However, since I still eat mayo, cheese, sweet tea and beef as my four food groups you should not consider me an expert.
I dropped sweet tea as a food group. I now drink water. That helped my diabetes. I am also working on my cholesterol so mostly I eat Cheerios and grumble.
