The evolution of things

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Fri, 04/03/2016 - 10:02pm
Libertarians want a small government, where corporations have almost unlimited powers to do their business. Business and economic growth is the name of the game, and in fact, the only game in town. Unfortunately, along with that, they support reducing personal freedoms: the right to marry the same sex, abortion, privacy, surveillance etc. On the […]

My weekly Pegan regiment

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Fri, 15/01/2016 - 2:19am
No1 point for health is sunshine, not food. You can eat all the shit in the world, but if you get a lot of UV, you can still be healthy as a horse, up to a certain age. For those of us who don’t, we need to be more selective. Here’s a rundown of my […]

Epi-Paleo Manifesto

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Tue, 24/11/2015 - 5:41am
These are the principles that I have built my diet around. Only changes I’ve made is that I do eat beans (as per my Mediterranean ancestry), and I don’t go too low on carbs (due to thyroid issues). Lots of veggies instead, and seafood. Working on getting closer on the lifestyle points too.

Jack Kruse vs the Paleo Establishment

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Fri, 13/11/2015 - 8:27pm
Something very interesting is happening right now in the Paleo turf. The Paleo poster boy, Robb Wolf, got into an online shout match with Dr Jack Kruse, the “quantum epigenetics” poster boy. Robb calls Jack a quasi-mystical fraud, while Jack simply asks Robb to look at the evidence and research before he opens his mouth. […]

Paleo-pesco-vegetarianism (or, Pegan)

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Tue, 10/11/2015 - 7:00am
I’m full on in my mostly-vegetarian (“Pegan”) diet now. I believe that all popular diets have something to teach, otherwise, their followers wouldn’t swear for their efficacy. It’s just that not a single diet has all its facts right. So, after years of researching the matter, I have finally found what works for me the […]

Recipe: Gluten Free Bread

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Tue, 27/10/2015 - 4:16am
As I’m moving towards a Pegan diet (Paleo minus too much red meat, plus beans), I feel that some occassional bread (e.g. once a week) could have a place in my diet. This is a recipe with the least bad ingredients in it: no grains except rice, and no gums. You’ll need the Oster CKSTBRTW20 […]

Why “Dieting” will make you sicker

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Tue, 06/10/2015 - 7:07am
There are two types of dieting for weight loss: the one is plain calorie restriction, and the other one is cutting down specific parts of the normal human diet (e.g. carbs for low carb diets, or fats for low-fat vegan diets). Research has shown that the second way is a better way to lose weight […]

Cooking for those who don’t cook

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Mon, 05/10/2015 - 8:28pm
How to eat healthily, and with great diversity, without having to know more than 2-3 basic recipes? This is a guide for just that. The recipes are based on Chris Kresser’s version of Paleo (fermented dairy, potatoes, and optionally, white rice and some beans, are allowed). Notes: – For the main recipes, you can even […]

Review: Dark Matter

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Sun, 04/10/2015 - 3:40pm
“Dark Matter” (DM) is a new sci-fi show at the SyFy channel, produced in Canada. It tells the story of 7 crew members who wake up on their spaceship without any memories. Soon, they learn that they’re wanted mercenaries, and the story continues from there. There’s not much to tell about the show really: it’s […]

Psychedelic vs Meta-Psychedelic

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Thu, 01/10/2015 - 11:11pm
I do a lot of t-shirt design lately, which I enjoy immensely (possibly even more than making the collages that comprise the said t-shirts). On my store, I’ve separated my t-shirts as “pop art“, and “trippy“. The trippy ones are the t-shirt designs and collages that I call meta-psychedelic. They’re under the surreal category for […]

Is a veg*n lifestyle suitable for all?

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Mon, 28/09/2015 - 9:43pm
A year ago on Youtube, a Philosophy professor asked if it’s ethical to eat meat. Here’s the video, and below, find my reply. I’ll answer with some questions: 1. Is it ethical for an alien species to come and eat us? If yes, why is it not moral for us to eat an animal? If […]

Subconscious integration

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Mon, 28/09/2015 - 7:36pm
According to Carl Jung, after midlife, the personality is starting to get integrated with the subconscious. Various dreams allude to that, and Jung says that we need to pay attention to these clues. So last night, I met a young man (looking something between River Phoenix and Nicholas Hoult), who was supposed to be me. […]

Direct sales for artists

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Thu, 17/09/2015 - 7:22pm
Here are some more tips for my friends artists (collage or other visual artists), on how to run your own art shop to maximize your profit (I use TicTail.com for my shop). A 13″x19″ art print usually sells for $40 to $50, plus $10-$15 for shipping (international First Class is about $15). Selling a mug […]

RE: The Politics of Star Trek

Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts - Mon, 07/09/2015 - 8:19am
Lawyer Timothy Sandefur wrote an editorial for the “Claremont Review of Books”. In it, he’s saying that Picard’s non-interference politics were a step backwards from Kirk’s constant seek of justice, and that in the movie “Insurrection”, the race of Ba’ku were backwards people, shunning technology and exploration. Personally, I find his positions immature. His positions […]
