    Default Human Food Project

    Has anyone done this? Or considered getting a fecal sample tested?

    It would be interesting to compare the guts of classic rosaceans, to those of flushers.
    And of course, to compare our community in general, with those of healthy people.

    Of course, I can't imagine most people being able to afford the more detailed tests, me included.

    I have heard of the project before. Some posters on 'freetheanimal', have had tests done.

    Also, here in Australia, over the last two weeks, 'Catalyst', has done a two part TV series on 'The Gut Reaction'. Part two included a small segment with some of the scientists working on the poo project.

    Here is part one.

    Part two screened tonight, so I imagine it will be added to the website soon.

    This is a cool concept, but I have no idea what Stone Age people ate, and I suppose this is hard to nail down. Instead of Stone Age Diets, what if we cooked like farmers? So here is my explanation of farmer-style cooking, which I guess is about as close as anyone could get to healthy Stone Age cooking.

    Red beans with rice, tasty style:

    Soak one third of cup of small red beans in water for four hours. (In California these are called Adzuki beans.) Then drain and boil in 1 1/3 cup of water with a splash of olive oil, covered at medium low heat, for 40 min.

    While the red beans are boiling, thin-slice, the long way and throw away the seeds, three different kinds of peppers, and sauté in tablespoon of olive oil for 4 min., then add 1/2 cup of cube-cut onion and cook for 3 minutes. Clear a space in the middle of the pan and put 1 tablespoon of butter right there, and add three finely sliced cloves of garlic or one finely sliced medium shallot right on top of the butter. Cook and stir for another 4 min., and then add 1 tablespoon of oregano, and 2 tablespoons of mustard or 1 tablespoon of South Carolina style barbecue sauce and 1 tablespoon of Chef Sauce or London Pub sauce. Cook for 2 min., and then add one coarsely cut apple. Stir and cook for 1 min., and then turn off the heat. Pour two thirds of this into another bowl, and then to the one third remaining in the sauté pan, add one square of 70% plus-cocao chocolate bar. When the cacao is melted, stir and pour the cocoa-pepper sauce over the cooked beans.

    The usual three kinds of peppers are Bell, Hatch, and Jalapeño, but substitutions are fine. You can also add two tomatoes or ½ cup tomato-sauce to the sautéd pepper sauce if you like. I like canned plum tomatoes.

    While all of the above is going on, put 1/3 cup of rice grains into a frying pan set on warm, and put 1 and 1/3 cup of water into a pan with a splash of olive oil, and bring to a boil, then add the warmed rice from the frying pan. Cook uncovered at medium for 30 min. Turn off, cover, and let rest for 10 min.

    The day before, soak 1/4 cup of mung beans and 1/4 cup of lentils for 12 hours in 1 and 1/3 cup of water. Drain and put the mung and lentils into 1 and 1/3 cup of boiling water with a splash of olive oil. Cook for 50 min., covered, at low-medium heat.

    When the rice and two kinds of beans are done, sauté a pound of Ahi Tuna or whatever kind of fish you like. Put a splash of olive oil into the frying pan, and cook the fish on the first side for 5 min., flip it over, and then pour the reserved pepper sauce (without the cocoa) on top of the tuna after you flip it over, and cook for another 5 min., covered. Turn off the heat and let rest for 5 min.

    This will feed four people. Red beans and rice are a complete protein by themselves, but the pepper-cocoa sauce on the beans, and tuna, with a side of crunchy lentils and mung beans, make it tasty.
