This will most likely become an every other week post as I am having a tough time keeping up with everything going on in the world! That being said, I would still like to put together (on a regular basis) the things that interest me and that I think people might get some benefit from checking out…
The last couple weeks have been filled with so much good stuff! The things that got my attention the last two weeks are digestion (post coming soon…), ketosis, carbohydrate reclassification, darkness helping fat loss, is fructose is really bad for you? or good for you? or is sugar really bad? (or both?), wild and ancient fruit, useful guides (fats/sweeteners), thyroid, soda and violence, vegetables, kombucha, osteoporosis and vitamin K2, french fries the old fashioned way and a primal pumpkin brownie recipe!
