My paleo journey has led me to looking into crossfit. Some of you may be wondering what is Crossfit, what is has to do with Survival and why you should care about it.

With over 7,000 gyms, called boxes, in the US I’m sure there is one near you but for today I’m going to show you how to get started at home. To get started you will not need any equipment only a desire to become more fit. So get ready and let’s jump into the world of crossfit.

I love bacon. It’s not much of a confession seeing as everyone that knows me knows this. Every time anything with bacon in it shows up on the internet people will tag me on Facebook. There is a bacon cinnamon roll picture going around that I’ve been shown a million times now. The idea is to buy a cinnamon rolls in the can and unroll them put bacon in them and roll them back up. While I’m sure this is probably tasty I will never try it. I just don’t eat that crap not even with bacon. It did give me an idea though. Why bother even using the cinnamon roll, just make the whole thing from bacon. I figured it would be either delicious or disgusting. Well folks I’m your guinea pig so lets try this.

Often I get spam on my site in the comments linking to various websites. Rarely though it turns out to not be spam and comes from legit sources. I always like to go check out any links posted and make sure it’s something I like. I had an old article about making your own paleo camping meals that got a comment recently about a company finally making freeze dried paleo camping meals. Holding back my excitement was pretty darn hard. After looking over the site I decided to contact them and see if they wold like to send me a delicious sample to review. They did and today I’ll be doing just that.

I found this ebook while doing some research on how to increase my fat intake while lowering my protein. I had been eating too much protein and it was staling out my eight loss. I knew I needed to up the fat but was stumped on how to do that without equally increasing the protein. I didn’t find much in my searching until I came across this book. The Fat Fast Cook book comes packed with recipes that meet those requirements. After checking out the sample pages available on Amazon I decided to pick it up and have not been let down by it.

A long time ago while watching some Ron Hood videos I saw Karen making some bannoc. It looked pretty good but I didn’t like most, OK all, the ingredients in it. I don’t eat wheat flour, shorting and certainty not Bisquick. So I thought to myself I should make a paleo version one day. This was a few years ago and I realized I still had not even begun working on the recipe. Today I had decided I would work on it and post the results. I did a Google search for traditional bannoc recipes to swap out ingredients with things I wanted. Luckily for me bannock is a fairly simply thing to make. Good I hate baking.

I saw this product one day at the store and thought I would pick it up for review. It, the Rayovac PS73-4BT6 7-Hour Power Back Up, filled a nice I had been looking for. I like the idea of small back up power chargers but not the ones with built in batteries that can’t be changed. The big reason I liked this one was because It takes standard AA batteries. If I want rechargeable batteries I can just charge them and in a charger and put them in this unit. I feel AA batteries are perfect for backup power. They are relatively cheap and plentiful now to stock up on and in a collapse scenario I feel they would still be able to be found. With that said lets get down to the review and see how this charger performs.

Nutritional Misinformation pretty much runs rampant in the US and the entire world. Since the introduction of the food pyramid obesity rates have increased. Along with getting fatter diabetes has followed suite increasing. Following the food pyramid does not make you healthy but quite the opposite. It leads to over consuming of carbohydrates and sugar and trying to eliminate healthy fats. The term balanced diet is in truth horrible unbalanced. With over thirty years of failed diet information from the government you would think that the American people would see that a high carb low fat diet is bad. With all the studies out there that prove it is not healthy you would think people would wake up. Much like with current politics and the need to prepare for a shifting society normalcy bias prevents most people from seeing the truth. Today is mostly a rant about and I know how many of you love those.
