Weekend Link Love – Edition 139

If you’re near Kansas City, Kansas, next weekend, we’ve still got open spots for my upcoming PAST session. I’ll be there and would love to meet you!

“Is Sugar Toxic?” Gary Taubes wonders in the NY Times. The question isn’t totally rhetorical, and it’s a great read.

In another Times piece, another author wonders if sitting is a lethal activity. Again, great that it’s appearing on this scale, but totally unsurprising to our readers.

The NY Times really isn’t fooling around. They asked “What’s the Single Best Exercise?” and came back with a varied response: walking, the squat and HIIT. Applause is in order, I think.

Chef Rachel gave an extensive rundown of her experience at PrimalCon on her blog. She’s hoping to be back next year, and we hope to have her (contingent upon that cashew dip coming too, of course).

Primal Toad is running a great deal on his new Primal Smoothie Recipe e-Book. Blending enthusiasts may want to take notice.

The folks over at Perfect Health Diet have been running a great series on HDL. Their latest is on the importance of raising it smartly in a way conducive to good health, rather than blindly without regard for anything but the number.

Recipe Corner

  • The black sheep of chowders, Manhattan clam, looks pretty darn delicious after Cheeseslave’s treatment.
