Are you addicted to sausages? This man certainly is. Can any UK readers vouch for the quality of these Mcwhinney’s Irish pork sausages? Are they worth risking clinical addiction?
There’s nothing more enjoyable on a Sunday morning than reading about the collusion of federal regulators and Monsanto to keep the world’s best-selling herbicide’s tendency to cause birth defects secret from the public!
More heartening food news: a popular poultry medicine used by chicken farmers increases inorganic arsenic levels (read: toxic) in the animals’ livers.
Artichokes are not the most welcoming food in the produce department. With their odd shape, dull green color and layers of prickly armor it’s a wonder humans started eating them at all. Luckily, some poor soul a long time ago was hungry enough to try them and since Roman times the artichoke has not only been embraced, it has had a reputation of being a gourmet delicacy.
There is something oddly decadent about artichokes, even though they descend from the lowly thistle family, the flavor is quite mild and there isn’t an ounce of fat to be found. Maybe it’s because artichokes seem so difficult to cook (and eat, for that matter) that people save them for special occasions. But don’t be intimidated and definitely don’t relegate artichokes to the “special occasion” category. First of all, they’re not that hard to cook. Secondly, artichokes contain almost as many antioxidants as berries and are high in vitamin C, folic acid, magnesium, fiber, and flavonoids. These power-houses of nutrition can be served as an appetizer or side dish and are great in salads.
I hope the publication of this particular success story doesn’t come across as too self-serving. Reader Brett expresses at length his appreciation for what I do, and for that I’m very grateful. My goal is to touch millions of lives with the Primal Blueprint message, and it’s emails from readers like Brett that motivate me to keep doing what I’m doing. But at the end of day it’s not about what I do. It’s about all of the decisions each of you make daily. I’ll continue to do my small part in challenging conventional wisdom and attempting to provide some direction amidst all of the confusion. But it’s up to you to take that information and do something with it. So make like Brett and his wife Beth and get Primal today!
If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thanks for reading!
