More on Attachment

A couple of good comments yesterday on "No Attachment to Dust," which was quoting a short story from the book Zen Flesh, Zen Bones.

Christopher Lovejoy commented on the line, "Poverty is your treasure. Never exchange it for an easy life." He asked -

On Natural Health Hack

“Going Paleo” is not something I think we’ll incorporate into our family protocol anytime soon. Nor is being a vegetarian. Both of these lifestyle choices could easily take several blog posts all on their own and yet as if they were politics, I may stay away from them in their entirety….we’ll see.

However, both of these relatively drastic dietary choices have merits, and for the topic of this blog I want to talk about bones. Bones...as in using the complete carcass in the case of poultry. The nutrient dense stock you get from them when properly preparing at home makes it not even a comparable product to anything you buy in the store.

When cooked at the lowest simmer possible, for the longest amount of time….as much as 24 hours or so, the minerals that leech from the bones are second to none. When I drink it, I seriously feel nourished deep down….it’s hard to describe.

Here are some of the reasons why:
