    I enjoy cooking. The main thing that stops me from doing more complex recipes is time. Usually dinner for me looks something like: "Chop some veggies, steam. Chop some meat, cook in pan. Toss...

    There are a few, but they're pretty rare in general. Unless a restaurant explicitly advertises their meat as "grass-fed", their seafood as "wild-caught", or their veggies as organic, it's a pretty...

    I'm neither low-fat/high-carb nor high-fat/low-carb. in general, I'm probably a little too high on protein compared to where I want to be, but probably something like 35P/40C/25F on workout days,...

    While some question the paleo/primal-ness of potatoes, they're a nutritious whole food. The only caveat here is about sensitivities to substances they may contain(assuming you're not low-carb. If...

    Interesting that "Egg Fettuccinne" is a junk food but "Corn Thins" are a "healthy" food.

    As far as I can tell the author is just cherry-picking with no real scientific basis.
