The Best of Mark’s Daily Apple: April 2008

Dedicated readers of MDA had a very busy April. They got Primal by tearing into some protein (but not legumes or gluten). They practiced the art of compromise and had a few drinks (and dessert!) They made their own butter, spiced up their meals with wasabi and ginger, considered what to do with artificial sweeteners, planted their own backyard vegetable gardens, joined local CSAs and still had time for a few 15 minute workouts! Goodness. Let’s just hope that May can as productive and fruitful. Thanks to everyone for stopping by!

The Best of Mark’s Daily Apple: March 2008

Last month was all about reader participation with comments at an all-time high. Dear Mark: Cheap Meat really got going with an intelligent (though heated at times) debate between meat-eaters and vegetarians. Our Fast Food Indulgence post got some people up in arms about health and personal responsibility. And we got some kind words from you in our 1,000 Posts! post that were highly appreciated and very encouraging. Enjoy these posts and others in this month’s “Best Of” list!

The Best of Mark’s Daily Apple: February 2008

Remember that one time when Mark ripped Big Pharma a new one. Or when he gave us the lowdown on fats. Or maybe that time when he answered a reader’s question about chronic cardio. That was awesome. Yeah. Those were the days. (Taking a moment to fondly reminisce.) Luckily, you can still enjoy all those great memories and revisit them anytime you would like! Here are some of the best posts of February put together in a nice little condensed batch for your perusal. Enjoy!
