Weekly Round-Up

22 Jan

Here’s but a sampling of links, discussions and posts that have been bandied about the Highbrow Paleo group:

Matthew's Drippings

  • We looked over Chris Masterjohn’s new paper about the benefits of green tea.
  • Carly quotes Dr. Cordain:

“If you are about 75% Paleo compliant, you won’t need any vitamin or mineral supplements (except possibly vitamin D and fish oil). Many new studies suggest that antioxidant supplements may actually increase overall mortality and disease morbidity. I have listed these references in my new book.The vitamin and mineral density of a typical contemporary diet based on Stone Age food groups (748 milligrams of C or 1247 % of the DRI) is quite high.”

What say you?

  • We talked over Melissa McEwen’s post over on Huntgatherlove.com regarding the invisible women of Paleo.
  • Smelts, you know those little fish you are supposed to eat bones and all. For Elizabeth it was a 50/50 experience. The bones were kinda gross, but she’s got quite a few heads with which she’ll make a nice stock.
  • Looks like many HBP peeps like their fish sauce. Winning brand is Red Boat. 
  • Since the people in our group are very much so interested in taking health and diet into our own hands, we tend to pay attention to “outside of the box” nutrition advice. However, Matthew offers up this blog post to stir some debate over how to stray from mainstream advice while staying out of the “crazy stuff”.

    am not a contributing member of the group, do enjoy the weekly reads. Is there any way to get the recipes that go with the posted pictures?

      Great question. I think we need to add a separate section for recipes. Keep tuned – I’ll work on this. Thanks for following!

  2. I always spent my half an hour to read this weblog’s articles or
    reviews daily along with a cup of coffee.
