Diet and nutrition / Re: Bugs... eating insects on Paleo diet
« on: November 02, 2017, 12:45:45 PM »
I have tried locusts and crickets so far, but i can't farm either here, mealworms would be easy to farm by feeding them grain, but i can't figure out their natural food, i know buffalo worms eat a more varied diet but there aren't any good guides to be found. And buying bugs is not a good option as they are more expensive than normal meat.

I looked up beetle grubs that eat rotten wood, those gross me out, so maybe when i'm more used to the idea...

Exercises / Re: I have to exercise. I am 65 this year and very unfit

I'd go for walking it costs nothing, you get fresh air (depending on where you walk), and you can decide how far you walk eventually if possible you should do burst runs, just walk for a while then run as fast as possible for a short distance, this is what would happen in paleolithic times as well most movements were slow to preserve energy for dangerous moments, the burst runs simulate those dangerous moments. (I read somewhere that these sudden bursts of excersize release helpful hormones, i think it was marks daily apple)

High fat meat is usually cheaper here than lean cuts, and organ meat is even cheaper so i'm teaching myself how to cook these, i eat chicken livers regularly, and am currently focussing on how to cook beef heart, (tried yesterday got the taste right, but the meat was too tough next time i'll cut them thinner.) The village i live in also has a weekly market where i can cheaply buy fish and vegetables.

As for how i got into paleo, i was already looking into healthier eating for a few years and concluded most of what i was taught was wrong, i was already following some of the rules of paleo like limiting gluten as much as possible, stopped eating potatoes, pasta and rice with every meal. Then i stumbled on a beginners guide to paleo, and after reading that i decided to try it for a bit. (I had heard about is before that but thought it would be too complicated, luckily it isn't.)

As for the question about obesity and food based diseases, it's not in the news here that often but minor health issues and light overweight are very common, moderate overweight is also not too uncommon, and when you pay attention obese people aren't too hard to find in busy places.

As for comparing to the us... I have never been there, so i can't answer that as news and internet are often exaggerated, if they are correct you have more of a problem but here we should do something too. I'd say we have the benefit that for most people everything is nearby and cycling is normal. I cycle around 120 km a week (75 miles)

The netherlands, yes it's other peoples money, but me using it has less negative impact than the government wasting it on long term projects that will be cancelled by the next elections...

Well something i can farm myself would be convinient, wood eating beetle larvae shouldn't be too hard, i'll just have to ask the farm i go to for wood scraps from their forest maintenance.

We have 2 tax rates a high one for luxury items which is 21% and a low one on food and essentials which for now is 6% but next year will become 9%. And i live one a form of welfare for disabled people which will go down with 5% so that we might try to find a job. (99% of the affected people will never be hired as we can never do as much as a normal employees.)

Currently i am trying to become as paleo as possible so i signed up with several forums and groups. I have the general rules down i think, however i do have trouble balancing the quantities of meat, fish, eggs and vegetables... And my bank account balance... I think i'm making this more expensive than i should, and soon more expensive than i can afford. (My income will go down with 5% and taxes will go up by 3%, nice combo.)

So i'll need to bring down my meat consumption a bit yet still get in enough fat, which'll be a challenge.

Diet and nutrition / Bugs... eating insects on Paleo diet

If things go the way the dutch government have planned, i might need to actually go foraging to be able to afford food, while it would be the ultimate paleo diet that way. It would also mean breaking laws, as i'll never be able to get a hunting license here... So foraging for plant matter is already frowned upon but that is possible, a fishing license is not hard to get either.

However i read a lot about bugs being high quality protein sources, and while mealworms are easy to farm they are usually farmed on oats, so i was wondering if anyone here has experience with eating bugs and knows which ones are easy to culture and not too gross to prepare.
