Weekend Link Love

weekend link loveMore proof of the pudding: Reader Adam just won his neighborhood fitness contest by dropping half his body fat living Primally.

Because sometimes you just need to break Primal Law #9, go ahead and join the Warrior Dash. Just remember to stop, drop, and roll if you catch on fire.

Remember, pizza counts as a required bread and a required veggie. Mrs. Q has decided to spend a year eating school lunch. Check out her blog, Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project, where she posts Children’s Food Bill of Rights, ridiculous meals, and ideas for improvement.

Quick! What does “Loren Cordain” rhyme with?! That’s right, Primal Chat wrote a Primal Poem.

Burger Cordon Bleu? Forum user Rivvin dug up a ridiculous treasure this week called Stufz. Seems this device could also be used for a modest amount of pranking at the family barbecue.

Forget Skittles. Taste this rainbow.

Recipe Corner

  • Did you just create a coconut pancake bacon smoothie mash-up? Or maybe you’ve got an unbeatable avocado loaf. Head over to Tasty Paleo. It’s a recipe swap meet, 2.0 style.
  • If you needed an excuse to buy a mortar and pestle… watch Food Wishes raw green sauce recipe.

Comment of the Week

I just heard on Super Human Radio last week that vitamin D is also a precursor to testosterone production in males. I don’t know all the science behind that but I’ll take more test anyway I can get it!

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Congrats to adam!

    That’s some good news for the primal movement.

  4. Oh, the Warrior Dash has an event in my region! I am SO there! Time to go gather a few friends….

  5. Can I get ready for the Rcky Mtn warrior dash in time?? I agree with Tai Haku; there were some negative responses to Adam’s success, but PBers rushed in & squashed that!
    School lunches… ugh. You forget how horrible they are when your kids are out of school. Makes you wanna git out there & shake things up a bit…

  8. I did the southeast region Warrior Dawsh in May. It was great fun. A Grok like workout. Crawled through mud, ran through the lake, climbed and jumped over cars, climbed cargo nets and walls, jumped barriers, jumped over fire, and tripped over tires. Plus, I got three free beers at the end. What could be better?

  9. I checked out Tasty Paleo, but didn’t see the coconut pancake bacon smoothie mash-up – and I’m dyin’ for the recipe!

    Anyone? ;-)

    • Hey speaking of Coconut, thanks for the awesome pancake recipe!

  10. I’m glad you gave Mrs.Q a shout out, she really is doing us a huge service here!

  11. I enjoyed reading the poem and the colored bacon is awesome – I want some.

    Primal Toad wrote on June 20th, 2010
  12. I’m not so sure the colored bacon will become popular. After all, you don’t need pretty colors to get kids to eat bacon. Everyone already loves bacon! That’s one of the things that is so cool about eating primal. The food naturally tastes good so you don’t have to resort to tricks or cajoling to convince people to like it and eat it.

  13. Way to go Adam! Great to see the Primal word being spread even more in the Seattle area. Forget the negative comments section of the article. There were also lots of positive from other PB’ers. Keep spreading the word.
    Grok on!

  14. “More proof in the pudding”

    Oh no, Mark. Please, no.

    “The proof OF the pudding is in the eating”

    Proof in this case is a somewhat archaic version of the word as a verb, meaning test.

    Yes, you can love primal and be a pedant ;-)

    Thanks for the great site (and the book, that I’m working my way through).

  15. Congratulations to Adam! The comments on the website are just from negative people that are jealous of his results. He did a great job and is true proof of how responding to our bodies evolutionary designs really works for overall health!

    I can’t believe our children eat that stuff – ugh. I am sooo homeschooling my babies!

    I love the paleo recipe exchange :-) great place for new ideas! I can’t wait to try some.

  16. Mrs. Q blog was interesting. Loved the primal poem. Colorful bacon that’s creative work of art lol. (I like mine natural) Adam, Congrats! (It feels real good to received support & backup) Good post as always Mark :-D

  17. The comments on the success story are ridiculous. Congrats Adam on the success. Hope your “metabolism doesn’t catch up with you…” idiots. PB is the way to go!

  18. OK, I’m doing the Rocky Mountain dash!! I better start training…running’s not my forte, but I’m all about jumping and crawling through mud.
