I finally read The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet. I enjoyed reading it and a lot of what he says about ALL grains (not just wheat) being problematic makes a ton of sense.
Robb Wolf says with fruits such as berries they have a benefit of being eaten in that the seeds get spread around and fertilized. Grains don't get a similar benefit from being eaten and they don't like to give something for nothing so they're going to fight back!
I noticed the last couple of times I've had rice I've felt REALLY sick for a day or two after. So no more!
I've been thinking about some skills I want to develop this year. These are my skill goals:
1. Get ham radio licensed for SHTF communications. I found a $25 course that starts Sept 18th.
2. Add a certification as a math teacher in order to increase competitiveness as a teacher job seeker in the future. Although I enjoy my current position as an ELL English teacher I would like to increase my options of positions at as many different schools as possible in case I have to move in the next couple of years.
3. Develop job skill for SHTF world. I don't think I can rely on teaching alone. I'm thinking something practical: welding, doula, locksmithing.
What skills do you think would be valuable in a SHTF situation?
