I’ve never seen evidence of a “Paleolithic Tea Service”….until now.

That’s in San Francisco somewhere. Thanks to Matt Stern for the photos.

     Yeah, because paleolithic humans ate braised tofu… That’s as retarded as the Dr. Oz "Prehistoric Diet".

      Well I definitely don’t live in a place like San Francisco.  Everybody around thinks I am crazy for trying this Paleo diet.  They tell me " that sounds just as crazy as those vegans in Austin" This is probably the wrong forum to ask this, but how do you obtain plenty of calcium in this diet since one of the major requirements is to knock out dairy.  I am a little worried about it because I do have members in my family who have died of osteoporosis.  And none of them were milk drinkers.  I know it sounds cliche but it is true.  My grandmother would rather have a fork stuck in her eye than drink milk.  I am a woman in her early thirties and I am worried about my calcium intake.  I know there is the raw milk option, but it is illegal here and I am a school teacher.  School teachers have been fired for far lesser crimes.  It is even frowned upon where I live to see teachers having alcohol in public. On top to that, I am not at the stage where I can get over my nonpasteurized phobia.   So what do you guys do to make sure you obtain plenty of calcium?  Supplements?   I know there is the almond milk option, but I am severely allergic to almonds.  So you can see how I am having a little bit of hard time on this diet.  It is clearing up my acne for sure, but I don’t want to sacrifice calcium for it.  Sun exposure is not a problem where I live.  It beats down on you all the time.  So I am good in that department.   I have some books coming in the mail about the paleo diet.  But until then any suggestions?   Thank you.

        You can get it from the same place herbivores do: plants. There’s also calcium in sardines and canned salmon, especially if you eat the bones (they’re soft).

        Some recent studies have shown that supplementing calcium doesn’t do a bit of good for bone health, and may calcify the arteries. Too much calcium impedes magnesium absorption as well, and dairy raises insulin beyond what you’d expect from the sugar content. Consider this: why would humans be the only animal that needs to consume milk beyond infancy? Or the milk of other animals?

        Something that has been shown to help bone density is resistance exercise like weight lifting or gardening. About ten years ago, a report came out talking up the benefits of weight-bearing exercise, with the head researcher surprised because she took gardening to be such a "dainty activity."

          Thanks Lori.  Good to know that I can live without milk.  I have always hated it, but I drank it for strong bones. I have been doing some research about calcium intake and extraction.  Paleo has been a complete paradigm shift for me.  I will look for the salmon also.  Wow gardening has never been "dainty" for me!  All that lifting, sweating, squating, pushing, hauling, and digging in the bright morning sun just wipes me out.  I look like my boyfriend when he comes out of  Crossfit.  He’s the one tha got me to try this paleo lifestyle, but I noticed he took all the darwinism out of it while explaining it.  I guess because I am a devout Catholic. ( It doesn’t bother me that much) So good to know I have been doing *something* right.  I will keep up the gardening.  It beats a glass of skim milk. Yuck!

    I hope to become an archeologist so that I can be the first to uncover a paleolithic tofu press.

  3. Matt says:

     Don’t worry all.  I obviously chose the duck.  No tofu spoling my meal.

  4. Jackson says:

    I’m not shocked about the tofu because I assume the vegetarians would whine if it weren’t there, but having eaten it as a vegan on many occasions I’m trying not to gag at the idea of it being braised.  Gugh…

    The Paleolithic Tea service can be found at Samovar Tea Lounge ­čÖé  

  6. Naomi Most says:

    Oh yes, I have been to Samovar many times.  Despite the apparent wankery, their food is actually quite nice.  And their tea is excellent.

    Yes, "tofu" is not Paleo, but you have to understand: in SF people are accustomed to getting exactly what they want catered to their individual belief systems.  Most likely they got enough requests of "can I substitute tofu" that they added it to the menu.  (Or more likely, they anticipated those requests based on past experiences.)

    I am thankful that NBA commissioner David Stern (search) was stern in his punishment of Indiana Pacers’ player Ron Artest (search) as well as the rest of his not-so-merry guys. It really is about time overpaid, over-coddled athletes are held accountable for grotesque behavior with over just a slap on the wrist.

    I’m thankful that a jury identified Scott Peterson guilty. Simpson (search) saga would happen to be undesirable.

    I am thankful for Three Buck Chuck the effective inexpensive wine located at Trader Joe’s (search). It’s truly very good, and it genuinely charges only 3 bucks.

    It doesn’t matter what you do to get a living, no matter how tough or stressful you believe your job is, try to remember the hard function you put in to get exactly where you’re currently, and do not forget that you will find other individuals available working a heck of a good deal tougher, for a heck of a good deal less.

    Bob Costas . Not So Bad . Grrr!

    Readers of Grrr! understand that I am no fan of sports broadcaster Bob Costas (search), and that I’m regularly critical of him. So envision how awkward it was when I met him face-to-face at style designer Joseph Abboud’s book-signing party final week.

    There I was, hobnobbing with the likes of New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon, “Imus within the Morning” host Don Imus and Joe Abboud in New York City’s Time Warner Center, when in walk Bob and Mrs. Costas. He came best over, introduced himself and his wife to me, and was very gracious.

    I only stated “Hi, I’m Mike,” lest he puts the Straka together with all the Grrr! guy who tore him up more than the Olympics broadcast (not that I assume he read it but you under no circumstances know).

    Now, I’m not a single to be star-struck, and I wasn’t that night. But I was Grrr’d due to the fact I truly wanted him to be a jerk. What I discovered, yet, is that he’s just like you and me. ET (search).

    Bradley S. in Sacramento, Calif.: Hey Mike, your post sucked!!! In actual fact, it sucked so poor it is best to compose an apology for it. Trump show isn popular mainly because he mean. Men and women like the show because they can discover from it. It gives real-life examples of how one particular ought to correctly break down an issue, prioritize and then concentrate on what’s valuable. Furthermore, it chucks all these fad management strategies within the garbage exactly where they belong. Branson show sucks since it fails to convey the wisdom he has discovered from his home business experience; the show has absolutely nothing to provide. Open your Bible to the book of Proverbs, read it after which rewrite your column. People who are swift to tell other consumers off are rapidly exposed as fools. Your apology report must be titled Lane Vigilantes, Grrr Over It and then you’re able to proceed to emphasize priorities more than trivialities.

    Bradley, you are right. Let me 1st apologize for breaking into your house in Sacramento and bookmarking my Grrr! Column on just about every one of your computers. Then, let me apologize for holding my Beretta 686 Onyx 12 Gauge (search) for your head, and forcing you to read it . Twice. Don’t know what came more than me.

    Suzanne M. in Dallas, Texas: Thank you, thank you, thank you for your comments about Alicia Keys!! She is astonishing I watched her performances on the AMA’s and she can S-I-N-G. No back-up tracks or issues with “acid reflux” for her. Another wonderful I feel it is best to mention is Josh Groban. His voice is pure power, pure beauty. He performed on the AMAs as well and he tends to make the so-called “pop tartlets” appear like toast.

    Kirk in Cyber-Space: Mike, yes, it is frustrating to determine Real-ities get a job which they don’t deserve. It’s annoying to watch a pop star’s lips quit moving whilst she’s nevertheless singing. But I believe it’s amazing that these individuals are taking benefit of possibilities that come their way. It really is what I’d do. But there’s a distinction involving these individuals and individuals who have worked hard making there method to where they’re. They’re going to not outlast their 15 minutes. Recall, those of you who have worked challenging, you consistently have that foundation to fall back on. You understand that the other folks will fall out from the limelight. It is not excellent adequate to take opportunities that come your way . you will have to generate one thing of them, also.
