    Hahahaaa, this is awesome. Sometimes I swear 20 years from now Primal will be mainstream.

    Hey, a kid can dream.

      My daughter gave me some Friendship Bread glop and I decided to go through with the process. When I baked the bread, I used coconut oil and everyone at work raved about the flavor. Of course being winter, I had to heat it just a bit to liquify it for the recipe. Yeah, I did have a slice last night when it came out of the oven. It was yummy. I was able to resist today, though.

        It used to be Conventional Wisdom when our grandparents were young. Maybe not all the stuff about pastured meat and frankenoils but then the meat they had was more likely to be mostly pastured and frankenoils weren't around yet. But our grandparents knew that starchy foods made you fat.

          I was highly amused to hear it on Rush today, and Beck was talking about how bad GMO's are. It's a total food revolution!

            My daughter went for a check up this past summer and the doc congratulated her on lowering her cholesterol by 15 points, and asked her what she was doing differently. Daughter said: Nothing but using coconut oil and butter. Doc's reply: You shouldn't be doing that! Geez!

                Yeah, my Mom used to tell us kids, back in the 50's, that if we avoided starches and sweets, and just ate our meat and vegetables, we'd never have a weight problem. It definitely was the CW of those days, even then.

                  Interesting article.

                  I note that Dr. Davis, at heartscan blog, is not on board with this, or saturated fats, either, I don't think. However he is on board with the "bread is evil" meme.

                  edit: I know that a lot of us have reported enhanced libido on the PB. I think Mark credits "lifting heavy things" for some of this, but Dr. Davis apparently credits cutting wheat from our diets for it. I've though sprinting was involved .

                  Regardless, I'm hoping CW will come around to Mark's view on saturated fats.

                    I was surprised the other day that Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 15-Ounce Tubs (Pack of 2) product was number one on Amazon in grocery. It's number 28 today, but it's been in the top 100 for 367 days now. Although at $13.82, with free shipping, it's a helluva deal!

                      Two groups have helped give coconut oil its sparkly new makeover. One is made up of scientists, many of whom are backtracking on the worst accusations against coconut oil. And the other is the growing number of vegans, who rely on it as a sweet vegetable fat that is solid at room temperature and can create flaky pie crusts, crumbly scones and fluffy cupcake icings, all without butter.

                        I always add it to my bath water, keeps my skin and hair soft for days...not more than a teaspoon, otherwise you will step out of the tub ready for slip 'n slide on straight gravel. :O
