Posted , by

THE THINGS WE CARRY By: Lauren Anderson It's midnight on a Thursday. I'm alone. Chopping vegetables in the kitchen. AGAIN. My sister Marnna comes in. She takes one look at my face and says, “Jeez Laurie, what's wrong?” (My sister still calls me Laurie, a holdover from childhood.) I look up. I didn't realize I had a cartoonish frown on my face.

The Enlightened Hedonist

Posted , by

By Craig F Nelson, MS, DC The Paleo Question: PART I The Paleo diet (short for Paleolithic) is the official diet of CrossFit.
