Warning: if you don’t like to get riled up with your morning coffee or tea, the link below about saturated fats might not be the way to start your day… Thankfully, there are some other good links for you here, too.
- Don’t miss my other new post today about my niece getting her first deer! (With a venison recipe and some pictures at that post, too.) Her Dad’s version of the story is so special…
- A friend, Laura, sent the following link to me and guessed that it would get my blood boiling – she was right. If you can read it without hyperventilating, you’re stronger than this chick. Such bullcrap is why so many of us our getting (and staying) sick! Here’s the link for more saturated fat lies, and I’m only sharing it just so you can read the EXACT opposite of the truth, with the ONLY exception in that article being #3, the one about trans fats. How in the world can so many still have it so wrong? Read how the saturated fat myth or lipid hypothesis began. Also, check out this post with YouTube videos on healthy fats – an entertaining and easy-to-understand picture of how the myths began.
- Here’s one on saturated fats that will make you laugh. Tom Naughton’s book review of the Drs. Eades latest book – I loved the part about him not giving up his coffee. Here’s a good excerpt about an “expert”, Dr. Neeraj, who “advises patients with fatty liver disease to lose weight by decreasing their fat intake and increasing exercise. He encourages patients to consume a diet rich in complex carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables.” Tom’s response: “Oh, for cryin’ out loud … Drs. Eades and Eades cite evidence in their book that saturated fat actually protects your liver. If you want to give an animal a fatty liver, you feed it corn or fructose, not bacon and eggs. Was fatty liver disease common a hundred years ago, when Americans ate a lot more butter and lard? No, it wasn’t. But it’s very common now that we live on starch, vegetable oils and high fructose corn syrup.” (I recently posted about this book, too: The 6-week cure for the middle-aged middle.)
- Did you read my post last week, “The Dangers of Soy”? I just came across a helpful post from Lindsay at Passionate Homemaker: Choosing a Natural Soy Sauce & Why Bragg’s Liquid Aminos is Not It.
- Join me TODAY in beginning the Sugar-free Challenge with the Nourishing Gourmet – go there and read about it! (Sounds like fun, huh? NOT.)
- Now, on a whim, I’m sharing a YouTube video I just saw moments ago, which doesn’t really relate to anything normally on my site. Get your Kleenex ready for this amazingly beautiful story – don't worry, I only share stories that bring on the *happy* tears:
Have a great week!
