Holiday Coma

Holiday Wrap-up, a Recipe Shout-Out, and Some Links

Judging by all the comments in the Paleoverse, everyone has over-indulged this holiday season and is looking forward to getting back in the Paleo groove. My holidays were great, if a bit drawn out. Because my husband was working, I had Xmas eve dinner with my in-laws at their place, then opened gifts the day-of […]

Quick Link: Vitamin B12

The NYTimes has a popular article going around about Vitamin B12 (here). Because bio-available B12 can only be obtained from animal sources (especially liver, red meat, fish, and shellfish), strict vegetarians and vegans run the risk of a deficiency. From the article: B12 is an essential vitamin with roles throughout the body. It is needed […]

Quick Link: Pan Sauces

The San Francisco Chronicle has a piece today about making pan sauces out of the leftover tasty bits left in the pan after sautéing a hunk of meat. Two of the recipes there contain flour, though I suspect the first one with cod could be subbed out for coconut or almond flour. But it’s the […]

Quick Link: Laboratory Meat

Just saw this from NPR about the efforts to grow meat in test tubes. I’m guessing you just gagged like I did. And apparently, more than one laboratory had this brilliant idea. There’s one in the Netherlands and one in North Carolina working on this “problem”. Okay, lets couch our disgust for a moment and […]

Sardines

Quick Links: Sardines

The San Francisco Chronicle helps me figure out what to do with those silvery, bug-eyed suckers, here. They’re supposed to be super good for you, what with all their protein, Omega 3s, calcium, iron, and potassium. But…EWWW! If you’re into sardines, then you already know the drill and you think I’m a ridiculously squeamish twit. […]

Asparagus and Mushroom Salad Asparagus with Anchovies and Capers Asparagus with Gremolata, Lemon, and Olive Oil As any faithful reader knows, asparagus is one of my favorite grilling companions.

Quick Link: Sun Exposure Prevents Nearsightedness?

Could a lack of exposure to the outdoors cause nearsightedness (NY Times article here)? While genetics seem partially to blame, the numbers of Americans with nearsightedness have increased from 25% in the 70s to 42% today. In the same way that we evolved with certain foods, it appears that because we evolved outdoors, our eyes […]

Quick Link: Gluten-Free Athletes

Outside Magazine recently discussed the trend of athletes going gluten free for better performance (here). This comes on the tail of news that elite tennis player Novak Djokovic has gone gluten free as well, which suits his #2-in-the-world self just fine. I’m curious about this. The story-opener about climber Dave Hahn almost doesn’t apply because […]

Quick Links: Barefoot Running

The NY Times has a piece addressing the dubious claim that barefoot running will cure you of your running injuries (here). For one thing, I don’t know anyone who has made that claim. I have seen people say that in order to continue their running career, they had to switch gears, and barefoot running provided […]
