Everything from the ingredients, preparation, presentation down to how you consume the meal gives you insight into the culture and history of a place. The best way to dive deeper into a culture is to not just eat the local food, but learn how to prepare it yourself. It’s a level immersion most people don’t reach and it’s glorious!

Comment on Forks in the Road – A Travelers Cookbook by Terry Tyson http://wildernessdave.com/forks-road-travelers-cookbook/#comment-145016 Fri, 18 Jul 2014 18:42:36 +0000 http://wildernessdave.com/?p=2527#comment-145016 Completely agree that food is likely the foundation for any type of travel, roughing it or otherwise. EVERY travel story I share includes the good, bad and the ugly food encountered along the way. Travel food (that which you make yourself) and food discovered while traveling is part of the adventure. Will be picking up this book for sure. When I thought about it for just a moment, travel shows whether they are presented by chefs or merely food eaters often focus on the adventures associated with discovering new food stuffs. Humans need to eat to survive and each culture’s approach to food provides insight into tha culture. This is especially true with old cultures.

Comment on How my training diet ruined my life… by David Creech http://wildernessdave.com/how-my-training-diet-ruined-my-life/#comment-144023 Wed, 16 Jul 2014 20:50:25 +0000 http://davecreech.com/blog/?p=349#comment-144023 Interview your nutritionists. Make sure you find one that understands metabolic issues in relation to nutrition and digestion. Also just ask them if they’ve heard of protein overload or protein related arthritis. Sadly, most nutritionists don’t know a whole lot outside their direct, narrow experience. A trainer claiming to be a “nutrition expert” is what got me in trouble.

Don’t give up. It is controllable, you may just need to figure out some specific triggers for your system. Paleo is good on the surface (whole, unprocessed foods) but is heavily reliant on animal proteins and that can be bad for some of us. A whole food diet with a good balance will help as long as the ratio of meat to vegetables is heavier on the veggie side.

Comment on How my training diet ruined my life… by Jackie J. http://wildernessdave.com/how-my-training-diet-ruined-my-life/#comment-144017 Wed, 16 Jul 2014 20:42:15 +0000 http://davecreech.com/blog/?p=349#comment-144017 It’s all so confusing! I am a pianist with an addiction to home renovation. I put a LOT of stress on my hands over the years, and finally the swelling (after building my deck) did NOT go away… for a year. I was working (at the piano) with fingers wrapped. The swelling and tenderness moved into the other hand as well. What? I saw many doctors and finally saw one who suggested the Paleo diet. I figured, what the heck, and, strangely, the swelling went away in 3 days. Magical! But after about 8 months, the tenderness started creeping back again and I have been able to do nothing about it. HOWEVER, I believe that since I went “Paleo”, I’ve been having excessive protein, and NOW my issue is not only whatever caused the swelling originally, but is also a protein excess problem. I definitely feel better when eating less protein. I have made an appointment with a nutritionist because I’m thoroughly confused about what I should and should not eat/do/think/believe! It’s good to read articles like yours simply to know I’m not crazy. I KNOW my hand issues are nutritional (as well as an underlying overuse problem). At the moment, I’m vacillating between hope and giving up.

I am big on bars too especially if it’s an active day. I don’t usually make a lunch, just eat bars. But I do like a good breakfast…and I do like my coffee :)

I prefer bars and have found I can happily survive on them for days if need be. I too love adding powdered PB2 to everything. It rocks!

I agree this was a rare event and I am further impacted in that I work in emergency medicine and know first hand the evolution of a venomous bite! I’ve got thursday penciled in for a return to the trail! Happy running!
