Here’s a condensed version of the goings on in the Highbrow Paleo discussion group. Links, topics, pictures, you name it:
Andrew is cutting out coffee for the month of February, and here is what we learned: Cutting coffee cold turkey can be difficult but not impossible, Jan, our Finnish friend hails from the country with the highest coffee intake, and Greatist shared why coffee and tea are good for you in this infographic.
Matthew started a new blog and shared this recipe for coconut banana cakes. Julie runs with her bad self and tweaks the recipe to come up with coconut banana chocolate chip cookies. If we’re nice maybe she’ll copy down the recipe for the Eats section.
Crazy ass featherless chickens that do not need to be plucked are NOT paleo!
Matt Metzgar posted about the effect eating in front of the computer has on overeating later in the day. It looks like many of us are guilty of this, however those who plan their meals and control their portions don’t see this as a problem for them. Maybe the planning is a form of front end mindfulness.
Amanda shared this nifty NY Times blog post about the effects exercise has on autophagy.
Russ wonders what we feed our pets? Are they Paleo too? Russ buys Blue Wilderness, Fazila has a herd of cats and she likes Origen, Taste of the Wild, and Feline Caviar. Some do feed their animals a raw diet of bones, offal and meat. Some are happy getting the best kibble they can get while supplementing it with eggs and meat from time to time.
If you could go on a long vacation (4 months) to top off your vitamin D reserves, where would you go? We recommend: Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Thailand, Indonesia, East Malaysia or Belize.
