Calibrated Crackers and Fears


Recommended Posts


A couple of months ago, I made some almond flour crackers.

I saw some recipe online and I figured I'd try it out.

But they ended up tasting like cardboard.

So I tried again, but this time, putting in something other than salt.

After a few iterations, I finally got it calibrated.

Mixed in with the almond flour and the egg, I put in some "everything but the bagel" seasoning.

And on top, after they are mixed and cut up like crackers, I put some plain salt on top.

AND after they are done, I put some chive and onion cream cheese on top.

Compared to the first time, when I made and ate them plain, these are very, very tasty.

An old song from the seventies is about love.

The line they repeat a bunch of times if very familiar:

"Love is like oxygen. You get too much you get too high. Not enough and you're going to die."

My entire youth has been punctuated by bouts of over training and the subsequent tendonitis.

I get it into my head to do something, like pushups or pull ups and I go ALL IN.

I figure if some is good, more is better right?

And even MORE more is even better-er, right?


My mind is willing, but my tendons always slam on the brakes.


Calibration is a very, very important concept.

To maintain a healthy body, you need to calibrate and balance quite a bit.

Healthy eating, but with a cheating day or two to look forward to.

Good sleep, some stretching, calisthenics, cardiovascular, etc.

Way back in the day, when we were still hunter-gatherers, we didn't need to worry about any of this stuff.

We'd find some wooly mammoth tracks and get excited.

While we tracked him for a few days, we were SUPER excited.

This is gonna be AWESOME!

It's all we thought about.

As we got closer and closer, all the potential benefits became bigger and bigger in our mind.

Big, happy feast with everybody.

Take a couple weeks off from hunting.

If you were up high enough on the social status chain, this big kill would get you in some with cute young cave girls.

We'd kill it, enjoy the feast.

The ultimate party time.

Then we'd get hungry again, and the cycle would repeat.

Today, we don't have these external things motivating us.

Food is easy.

Sex, if you lower your standards enough, is easy.

Nobody needs to set out bear traps outside your door so you don't get eaten while you sleep.

This means our brains tend to imagine things WAY more than we used to.

Unfortunately, our brains imagine potential negative things we MUCH STRONGER energy than potential good things.

This was perfect in the old days.

When danger could KILL you if you were unprepared.

Today, most of our fears are Mark Twain fears.

The kind that will never come true.

But unless you take time to re-calibrate your fears, they'll keep you stuck.

But once calibrated, you can get in there, and get some.
