What to Eat on the Paleo Diet

The Paleo Diet has been around forever and just primarily helps you get back to the basics of eating. Paleo just means that it is a simplistic diet that is based on foods being either in or out. The foods that are considered in the Paleo Diet are the food we ate prior to animal and agriculture husbandry which would be meat, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, vegetables, roots, mushrooms and berries. The food that is considered out for the Paleo Diet would be grains, dairy, beans, potatoes, sugar and other fake foods because they are from the neolithic era. Of course the idea behind the Paleo Diet is that our ancestors in the Paleo times mostly ate foods that were easiest to hunt or gather at that specific location.

Overseas Highway: The Impact of Roads on Real Estate in the Florida Keys, Part 4 of 5

Monroe County began construction on the Card Sound pass to connect the Upper Keys to the extension that Dade County was building. At the same time, a roadway was being constructed in the Lower Keys to connect Key West all the way to No Name Key. While roadways were underway in the Upper Keys and Lower Keys, the middle of the chain of islands was left undeveloped. Therefore, in order to travel the entire way north or south, ferries were needed to traverse the water. Employing three ferries purchased for $850,000 from Gibb’s Shipyard in Jacksonville, the Overseas Highway was officially opened on January 25, 1928. Florida Keys real estate was free to continue developing. While travel to and from Key West was impossible without the ferries, it was not the ideal solution for the roadway. One ferry was designated for the northbound route, one for the southbound route, and the third was kept in case of emergency. Each trip was 41 miles, and took approximately four hours to complete. Additionally, only 20 cars could fit on each ferry. This time-intensive trip cost $3.50 for passenger vehicles. The driver was included in this fee, but each additional passenger was charged $1.00 for the passage. With traveling throughout the Keys much...
