Intermittent Fasting and My Fasting Mimicking Diet

I’ve been on the ketogenic diet for six months now. For the last three months, I’ve been playing with intermittent fasting.

I’m not gonna lie, the marijuana was considerably more expensive than I had anticipated, and may even leave me rethinking the expensive CBD oil.

Following Old World Models

I consider myself a practitioner of the old ways. What does that mean? It means I look to the way our ancestors interacted with the world around them and try to mimic that in my own life. I am always adapting my life in new ways as I learn more and more about how my… Continue reading Following Old World Models

Now, you might be wondering why the spirits have such an interest in my morning habits, so let me explain.
