Weekend Link Love – Edition 120

Posted By Mark Sisson On December 5, 2010 @ 5:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 46 Comments

You may have heard about the incoming report that high levels of vitamin D supplementation is unnecessary [7]. I’d suggest reading Heart Scan Blog‘s version of what the Institute of Medicine should have said [8]. And for those of you who still think D is a good idea, check out this handy infographic on vitamin D [9].

GrinchHabits? No, Leo Babauta’s blog is called Zen Habits, but he displays all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile with his post, The Case Against Buying Christmas Presents [10]. What say you, readers?

Is world health steamrolling toward a calories-per-dollar bottom line? Free the Animal asks the question, “For Paleo to go mainstream, must it be price competitive? [11]

TED (now in Chicago) has another great video this week featuring Jason Fried on why work doesn’t happen at work [12].

Quail is Primal. But how about quail for an entire month? Here’s an interesting find from Snopes about the impossible-to-win 30-days-of-quail bet [13].

EasyTone shoes are one thing, but EasyTone flip flops, pants, and sports bras [14]? Reebok is trying to turn you into a human rubber band!

And finally, sacrilicious [15]?

Recipe Corner

  • Have a chorizo burger [16], courtesy of Health-Bent.
  • Should you eat cake on your birthday? The Food Lover’s Primal Palate thinks so. Though, I have to make air quotes when I call this dark chocolate cake recipe [17] “Primal” as it it does call for an entire cup of maple syrup.

Time Capsule

One year ago (November 28 – December 4)

Comment of the Week

My dog Wesley is the opposite of a morning dog–the only thing that gets him up is the smell of bacon. But forget that evening walk, and he will stare a hole in my head. He’s totally committed to primal eating, but no fan of broccolini.
