Do vegans and climate hysterics call for a countryside without domesticated animals? Wolf and Rodgers suggest yes. If you think about it, they're correct. After all, cow-farting is supposedly destroying the planet according to Gretchen and her ilk. If they had their way, these animals would be gone. Clearly the Root of All Evil But … Continue reading What Role Does Livestock Play in our Environment?
Readers will know I have been wary of Pacific seafood. It seems like ancient history but some will remember Fukushima back in 2011. Simply put, a lot of radioactive material made its way into the Pacific Ocean. I don't like the idea of eating salmon with a side of Cesium. That was ten years ago. … Continue reading Rethinking Pacific Seafood
I was a little curious if there are any vegetables out there that I should be eating on my strict keto diet. Dr Berry has a nice short list. All of them are ticks, although I should be eating more cabbage. I suppose olives would be okay too, but I'm not a huge fan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsXlwieBp8I … Continue reading Keto Friendly Vegetables
You bet it is. This is not a shock revelation to anyone who reads this site. Our authors lay it all down in this chapter: B vitamins, vitamin D, Iron, zinc, magnesium, copper cobalt, phosphorus...You get the idea. Meat contains all of these essential nutrients and minerals. Moreover, there are certain things one simply cannot … Continue reading Sacred Cow – Is Meat a Healthy Food?
Now we're getting somewhere. The first three chapters of this book have been good, but they were building a foundation. Rodgers and Wolf are starting to make their case. Nutritional Research The authors draw our attention to the problems with nutritional research at the start of this chapter. This was a gratifying read because they … Continue reading Sacred Cow – Does Meat Cause Chronic Disease?
Poor Mokolo the gorilla. Obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease were all killing this animal. It also had the testosterone levels of a typical "Soy Boy" and developed OCD-like behaviour: obsessive hair plucking. The staff at the Cleveland Zoo couldn't figure it out. Eventually, they stopped feeding him "fortified fibre biscuits" and … Continue reading Sacred Cow – Chapter Two
Just a brief post today. This technique has really helped my morning glucose readings. I haven't followed it religiously because I've had the odd normal dinner; however, when I have eaten dinner like a prince, it's been a lot earlier (4:00 to 5:30pm). This has had a very positive effect on my morning reading too. … Continue reading Dinner Like a Pauper – Working Well
Looks like a battery broiler I almost had a line on really good, free-range, local chicken. I came across a gentleman at my town market a year ago who was so proud of his chickens that he regaled me about just how slow-grown, and properly free-range they were. You could taste it too. The skin … Continue reading Finding Good Chicken
I stumbled across this study last week when I was researching the "King, Prince, Pauper" eating method. The title is pretty catchy "Early dinner or "dinner like a pauper": Evidence, the habitual time of the largest meal of the day - dinner - is predisposing to severe COVID-19 outcome - death." The paper concludes that … Continue reading Big Dinners Linked to Covid Deaths?
Some of you may remember that I linked to Tom Woods's interview with Robb Wolf a few months back. Wolf was on the show to discuss his new book Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat. It was such an interesting interview that I bought the book a couple of days later. Sacred Cow has … Continue reading Sacred Cow – Why Well-Raised Meat is Good for You and Good for the Planet
