“The low fat diet is the worst dietary advice in the last 50 years” -Dwight C. Lundell M.D.

Saturated Fat and Heart Disease

lundell_crop_small_131by Dwight C. Lundell M.D.

Does the thought of a steak, bacon and eggs, or real milk make you cringe thinking you’re instantly clogging up your arteries?  How many times have you seen physicians and nutritionists write “artery clogging saturated fats”? For the last 40 years the dietary instructions from governments and other authoritative bodies have told us to avoid all animal fats.

Americans took the message seriously and complied. Average fat consumption decreased, average blood cholesterol levels decreased but their rate of heart disease has continued to rise; the cost of its treatment has continued to rise.  Now, in 2011 we have 24 MILLION people diagnosed with diabetes and another 65 million with pre-diabetes and an epidemic of obesity now afflicting over 65% of the population.

Sunchoke Zelňačka

Sunchoke Zelňačka

During 15 years of cooking for my (now carnivorous) vegetarian husband the one food that we could always agree on: soup. We ate a lot of soup.  But lately, soup has been neglected; pushed aside in favor of meaty sauces & chunks of pure protein. We’ve been missing one of our favorite meals: a Czech sauerkraut & potato soup called Zelňačka.  I wanted to capture all the comforting flavor of that soup, but without the white potatoes that we’ve been avoiding- time to call upon the Sunchoke, aka the Jerusalem artichoke.  It’s an amazing little tuber & member of the sunflower family- one I’d never even heard of until fairly recently- which can rather capably stand in for a potato, but with a slight hint of artichoke (a lovely trait to have).

Vegetable Diet: The Best and Worst Vegetables to Eat

Dr. Joseph Mercola

Physician and author

If the phrase “eat your vegetables” echoes from your childhood memories of suppers gone by, then rest assured your mother was right. One of the best ways to improve your health is to eat plenty of high quality vegetables — ideally raw, locally grown and organic.

It sounds like a tall order. It takes time to get a bounty of fresh vegetables together and eat them every day.

The good news is, it’s easier than you think. For example, one way to maximize your intake of veggies is to juice them — something I highly recommend to patients in our health clinic who are working to restore or improve their health. I’ll discuss juicing a little later in this article, but first, let’s explore what makes vegetables “high quality,” so you will be prepared to make the best choices possible in any situation.

A Food Manifesto for the Future

Mary Hedlin of Hedlin Farm

By MARK BITTMAN

For decades, Americans believed that we had the world’s healthiest and safest diet. We worried little about this diet’s effect on the environment or on the lives of the animals (or even the workers) it relies upon. Nor did we worry about its ability to endure — that is, its sustainability.

That didn’t mean all was well. And we’ve come to recognize that our diet is unhealthful and unsafe. Many food production workers labor in difficult, even deplorable, conditions, and animals are produced as if they were widgets. It would be hard to devise a more wasteful, damaging, unsustainable system.

Here are some ideas — frequently discussed, but sadly not yet implemented — that would make the growing, preparation and consumption of food healthier, saner, more productive, less damaging and more enduring. In no particular order:

Paleo Coconut Macaroons

Coconut is delicious (& Paleo!) & cookies are delicious (& can be Paleo!); clearly, the time had come for Macaroons.

To find the perfect Macaroon recipe, I searched the many Paleo sites & headed over to see what our old friends at America’s Test Kitchen had to say.

For my Macaroons, I used honey & used unsweetened coconut- other than that it is a fairly traditional recipe.  One interesting technique I gathered from ATK: resting the concoction in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before rolling it in balls & baking- the cookies were easier to handle pre-baking & had a nicer texture after.

High Fat Diet Linked to Breast Cancer?

From Mark’s Daily Apple :

If you’ve been scanning the health news lately (or live within earshot of some gloating low-fat adherents), you might’ve noticed a flurry of recent headlines linking fat and cholesterol to breast cancer. In case you haven’t, this should get you up to speed:

Catch the drift?

These doomful blurbs sprang from a mouse study published earlier this month in the American Journal of Pathology, showing that mice fed a higher-fat, cholesterol-enriched diet developed bigger and more aggressive tumors than mice eating their normal “chow” diet. According to the researchers, this suggests that “cholesterol accelerates and enhances tumor formation.” And if the news stories are to be trusted, that means we should curb the fat and toss back some statins with our Healthy Whole Grain dinners.

The Paleo Table: Making a week’s worth of meals in advance


From Rob Wolf, by Amber Karnes

Stephen wrote in to The Paleo Table website and said,

“I’m a police officer and have a hard time sticking to a paleo diet. Firstly, I’m really new to switching to it, which is a vulnerable, easy to cheat time. Secondly, due to my job, it’s hard to nail down chain times when I get to eat. I am thinking about cooking a week’s worth of food ahead of time and bringing it to work in a cooler. I’m not much of a cook, but I know preparing my own food is the best way to stick to the diet.”

You are so right about that, brother! Good thinkin. While I don’t have this same problem as far as shift work, I can definitely sympathize. My sister Heidi is an E.R. trauma nurse and her partner Mark is a police/canine trainer. Both their schedules can turn them into drive-thru-visiting, fast food-eating zombies if they don’t keep an eye on it. They’ve had a lot of success doing just what you describe (my sister has lost over 30 pounds in the past couple months too!), so I decided to have a chat with them and get some of their best tips for managing food when your schedule is all out of whack.
