Weekly Round Up

23 Apr

Here’s a recap of links and photos from the HBP discussion group. (Note: Meredith is fully aware that “Roundup” can be used as one word but separated it into two the first time she used it on this blog. Therefore she is stubbornly sticking to this incorrect version. Suck it if you don’t like it!).

Dennis has some nice purple kraut going!

Thanks to Pat (@nutritionator) Highbrow Paleo has a newspaper based on some #Paleo tweets. It’s a neato idea and you, YES YOU can subscribe if you’d like.

Supplement with red meat for your health.

Paleo Republic has nearly all your Paleo food ideas covered (except for thedomesticman.com). Check out this meatza.

It’s been badmouthed for years, but caffeine is making a comeback. So many interesting uses – treating dry eyes for example.

Some members are tackling this list of 45 foods to never buy again but dreaming up Paleo versions.

Light pollution is now considered as carcinogenic as smoking.

Julia's egg salad, Bubbies pickle, some local bacon & U.S. Wellness liverwurst

Superhuman Radio interviews Loren Cordain.

Should kids go vegan? 

Who else out there is having this issue? Lately our bulk turmeric is VERY dark. And this is from those of us who live on totally different sides of the US. Some think it's a soil PH think other attribute it to copper. Anyone else seeing this?

J. Stanton gives us something more to think about in terms of food reward.

Ancestral Momentum tackles the controversial (who knew??) subject of cold thermogenesis. 

Need a cookbook devoted to insect recipes?

Our buddy Tony was on Low Carb Conversations, a Jimmy Moore podcast.

The diet world is getting weird, or weirder.

Cholesterol just may be the thing to help us fight cancer.  

People who eat a lot of flavanoids, particularly blueberries, have lower rates of diabetes and mortality and they raise adiponectin levels. Hear more here.

Aspirin increases AMPK.

What’s crazier: eating plants and animals (aka “paleo”) or eating beaver anal gland secretions?

Russ's lettuce chips.

Another variable to add to the pointless chase for eternal life we are all compelled to partake in.

Why are Asian rice eaters thin? 

Shift work and diabetes.

Hunger and it’s ability to help partition your calories where they need to go – away from fat and into lean tissue.

Stabby’s Corner (direct quotes from the Raccoon itself in response to this article about science failing us):

 “The scientific method is great, it is just that when there’s lots of money involved it kind of disappears out the window. Clinical trials are great and teach us a lot, and people just need to have a view of the context of things. There are too many myopic specialists and not enough generalists to put the whole picture together.

I think that a bunch of passionate people who can read and think without bias, like Highbrow Paleo, yay, is the best way to use science to get to the truth of the matter. Couldn’t we slash cardiovascular risks using science if we came up with recommendations? I’d like to hope so.

Most epidemiology should just restract itself and go home. Give the money to people who are going to do clinical trials that are smartly conducted and based in evidence.”

Carly's wild smoked salmon fillet with ginger, garlic, lime, gf soy sauce and chilli flakes, kale pan fried in butter and rice with butter. 🙂

    I am really excited to find this blog… but what’s with ALL the outgoing links going through facebook first? I have to tell facebook it’s okay to click on the link in between your blog and the final destination. Cumbersome… and creepy! Is this some sort of heavy-handed tracking method?

      Oh crap! I dunno. I think it’s me – operator error. We share convos in a facebook group and I try to copy the links from there, but I may not be doing it correctly. Thanks for that feedback and I’ll see if I can fix that in the future!

    • Meredith April 26, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

      It’s a happy little logo. No?

      • Bob Ross April 26, 2012 at 7:57 pm #
