Try sleeping on the floor covered with a comforter, in a hammock, or on a cot , in a sleeping bag/tent, or naturally in the woods or on grass. This is how you're supposed to sleep, is good for your back, you'll be more rested, and sleep better.

MmmM I do love a good lemon or lime water, how much do you usually use saber? I usually squeeze at least a half lemon in, I really like the sour/sweet flavor, but I can enjoy a whole one even more, so refreshing on a hot summer day!

I highly recommend "Field Guide to North American Edible Wild Plants" By Elias and Dykeman ... Probably the most efficient book out there for learning this stuff. It's thin and portable, which is important. Great big color pictures which is a must, sketches just don't cut it if you're going to try and eat what you're finding. It also breaks each plant down by it's uses, whether it can be eaten as a trailside snack, a potherb, ground for flour, tuber, etc. Most importantly it has a section on the most poisonous plants in the area, which are the ones we should learn first thing because there's only a handfull of deadly ones and once you've internalized them, you almost nullify risk of death from eating wilds. Then after that, you can focus on learning which ones you can eat! The book also has a range map and instructions for preparation. For the few dollars that it can be purchased on the web, it is really worth it's weight in gold. I also recommend for learning how to identify plant families, Thomas Elpel's Botany in Day. Not a field guide, but equally importantly it teaches you how plants are organized in to catgories so that you could go to a region you've never been before and make inferences about the plants based on leaf shape and organization.

For anyone living in a different region I'd recommend that they find a book with similar attributes to the field guide I listed above, most importantly learn the poisonous plants of the area and it should have big, clear, color pictures!

Also whenever you're out in the woods (or anywhere, these can often be found in city parks too!), collect a sprig or two, say thank you to the plant, and then bring it home for ID on the web. Usually with a few good keywords in google images you should be able to identify, or narrow it down. And just keep doing this regularly. It is very freeing to be able to walk through the woods and realize you're surrounded by food!

Question: You meant eat one/some of the deadly plants listed in the book to get desensitized to wild plants?

Thanks for the info  :D I bookmarked those two books for the future! I always wanted to get more into the wild and get my food for free so this awesome!

And thanks for the insight everyone, I see everyone's diff choices cause everyone's body is diff and have diff tastes, and needs for their body. I've got a few new choices and foods to try now.

While I'm out moving the cows around and working on the farm I'm always on the lookout for wild edibles. Some of my favorites are violas (violets), dandelion, lamb's quarters, wintercress, fungus of all varieties (though I often cook these), bedstraw (thank's jessica for reminding me about this one!), young tender leaves of basswood (tilia), the roots of common grass, wild leeks (ramps) and a host of others. See my post on biophotons for an explanation of why wild edibles are typically superior to cultivated veggies in regards to nutrition and energy (biophotons) composition.

For cultivated species, I like cauliflower, all peppers, radishes, lettuces (especially bibb, yum!), carrots in small quantities, any leafy greens actually, ginger root, chives, tomatoes (maybe a fruit?), okra, and others I'm not remembering right now. But most of those I eat instinctively and for health, I don't get excited about them like I do about meat and fruits (though I only eat fruits in very small quantities). Oh and I will eat sprigs of cilantro and parsley raw, or once in a great while make veggies juices with these as the base. Oh and celery!

 :D Cool! How'd you learn to tell what plants you can eat in the wild/outside, i'd like to learn too cause I always thought wild plants were much superior than this supermarket mutant bs.

If you do consume, be it in a little amount for LC what plants do you some consume(fungi,fruit,veg,etc)?

The easiest thing for me to digest without getting sensitive are romaine lettuce leaves(not the stems). I wanna broaden my choices.

Some tribes also engage in cannibalism, infanticide, and yes as you said forms of body mutilation including subincious , female circumcision, etc, but do we engage in that? No.

For the men here is my standard message from facebook:

"I am circumcised and hate it. Circumcision is sexually diminishing and it affects women too: Because of a parent taking the choice over my body, I like 200,000 other men are restoring their foreskins to regain sexual sesnitivity and undo some of the damage of circumcision:  And am hoping for foreskin regeneration to get everything I lost back:

Hand test: Run your fingertip down the back of your hand. Now run it down the palm of your hand. Clear difference. Notice how even after you stopped touching the palm of your hand you could still feel the line you drew with your fingertip. Your palm has Meissner’s corpsucles (touch-sensitive nerves) that the back of your hand does not. The male foreskin has 20-70,000 of these. “Just a flap of skin”? Obviously not Everything lost to circumcision

"Only being able to see in black and white, for example, rather than seeing in full color would be like experiencing an orgasm with a foreskin and without. There are feelings you’ll just never have without a foreskin."

"The greatest disadvantage of circumcision is the awful loss of sensitivity when the foreskin is removed. . . . On a scale of 10, the intact penis experiences pleasure that is at least 11 or 12; the circumcised penis is lucky to get to 3."

"The shock and surprise of my life came when I was in junior high school, and I was in the showers after gym. . . . I wondered what was wrong with those penises that looked different than mine. . . . I soon realized I had part of me removed. I felt incomplete and very frustrated when I realized that I could never be like I was when I was born—intact. That frustration is with me to this day. Throughout life I have regretted my circumcision. Daily I wish I were whole."

"it took me 2 months after circumcision for the glans to get calloused, it doesnt take years of rubbing against clothes trust me

I was so excited to try? my new exposed penis after the incision healed only to want to kill myself for what I had done"

"Within minutes, three feet of veins, arteries and capillaries, 240 feet of nerves and more than 20,000 nerve endings are destroyed; so are all the muscles, glands, epithelial tissue and sexual sensitivity associated with the foreskin. Finally, what nature intended as an internal organ is irrevocably externalized..."

"Without nerve endings,one cannot feel --

much as without eyes, one cannot see.


 Fran P. Hosken"

And aesthetically(visually) it is mutilation a cut v intact penis visual to show the damage: "

Even if you were cut, you can restore your foreskin and undo some of the damage.

Their body their choice, if they want to change their body when they growup then let them do it, men and women choose it sometimes, but to force this on a child or baby is wrong. Because this was forced on my own body I have to undo it.

Unfortunately in the US, the "wild" is often not far from centers of civilization.  :P

Yep yep, like desert areas, or a little forest, etc free of sewage, shit, and human messups =)

Are both of us cursed with such sensitivities or are we actually blessed? XP It's so strange. I remember eating these foods without such extreme negative reactions, but now I absolutely cannot handle them. When I tried to start recovery, first by the WAP diet, I attempted to use spices to cook, and it always made me feel ill. Plant antioxidants/aromatic compounds are a big no for me generally; if I do decide to eat something like a cucumber, I peel the skin or layers at the top since that is where most of the plant defense compounds exist. Also, I'm allergic to pretty much everything a person can be allergic to, but I think this is a good thing since it's a strong incentive to stop eating neolithic food. However, I can still eat seafood/shellfish and egg yolk so I'm still happy.  ;D ;D ;D

I know these sensitivities are a gift and a curse. We can't eat like everyone, but we aren't suffering from hidden sickness caused by these foods. I avoid anything seedlike even sprouted, I avoid fruits with seeds and a lot of fruits and veg (cucumbers too :< )

Basically meat is best for me, low carb is the way to go for me.

Ewww.... They live in civilization eating our garbage. Why would you want to?  -v

Not the city sewer ones but the ones in the wild , a lot of people eat the wild ones but i'm curious. Could be a new food I can add to my diet  :D

Not a big deal she mutilated her kid. Show her this:

All of our ancestors we're intact, happy, and whole for millions of years. If we were meant to have foreskins we would be born with them, men, women, and many mammals, and we are. Society's cultural preferences are sick. Poor children.

Can you eat them raw? Don't yell at me for being misinformed but is it true they may have rabies or other diseases? I'm just not sure.

I usually try to avoid bitter foods. Bitter tastes of poison to me, my taste buds are right.

Antioxidant plants like mustards, non spicy peppers, tomatoes, grapefruit(bitter) I avoid like the plague. Anything that makes me itch too. I just go with my body.

Meat is the safest bet.

How much would it cost to live in a cabin/etc in the woods, or to build your own in the woods? There's this guy living in the wild paleo in the woods:  He truly gave me hope again and inspired me. Something I always wanted to do.

1) Writing in a journal
2) Screaming in a secluded place, feels good
3) Lots of sun

These help me, i'm clinically depressed.

Techydude... you should be able to find wildflower in most areas, which is cultivated bees brought to wild flowers. For wild bees and wild flowers you will probably have to go hunting.

You mean wildflower honey sold in stores, or go find bees around wildflower and try to collect the honey myself o_o. But i'd be up for a fun wild bee hunting trip, wherever they are...

Can you chew on some really fresh organic marijuana or eat it?

Does this mean babies are not supposed to be raw human breastmilk fed?

I'm better today than I was yesterday.  I think the bone marrow helped.  I don't recommend raw egg yolk though, because it is pretty messy.

Well you can rub yolks on ya but I didn't mean rub it on ya lol  :D I guess I shoulda been more clear :( sorry. I meant like eat them cause of their vitamin E content and lotsa raw grassfed meat cause of their vitamin e as it protects against sunburn.

Try getting paleo bananas.
I can tell you that the cavendish bananas my country exports are freaks and full of chemicals.
Filipinos do not eat cavendish bananas, they are not sold in our local markets.

These? Cause i'd love to try them! After watching a vid I see most fruits today as mutant fruits , I try going after seeds less sweet with more seeds in them like berries, papayas, etc.

I recently wrote about honey in my blog

Love your article GS. I have some questions:
1) Is it possible to get raw wild honey in the united states?
2) Could you harvest raw wild honey yourself from like a forest or area or something like during the rain and maybe with some smoke like i've seen in Papau New Guinea?
3) Can you buy it, or even if fresh online or somewhere?

Vitamin E protection from leaves, and egg yolks, and animals.

Rub fat on your skin, suet, etc (animal whole real absorbable saturated not poison mono/poly) Aloe Vera, cold water. That's all I know...Hope you get better that burns!!

Freshwater fish are much more likely to carry dangerous parasites.

Also, ocean fish have a much higher mineral content in their environment, and their food is more nutritious, because of that mineral content.

I don't believe the parasites are dangerous, if anything like said on here before, we're not their intended host so it wouldn't bother us. The parasitic scare is wish wash and it's easy to control them on paleo. Just another fear that's negative on diet.
