Weekend Link Love – Edition 139

Posted By Mark Sisson On April 24, 2011 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 21 Comments

If you’re near Kansas City, Kansas, next weekend, we’ve still got open spots for my upcoming PAST session [7]. I’ll be there and would love to meet you!

“Is Sugar Toxic?” Gary Taubes wonders in the NY Times [8]. The question isn’t totally rhetorical, and it’s a great read.

In another Times piece, another author wonders [9] 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?” [10] 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 [11]. 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 [12] 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 [13] 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

  • Lamb doesn’t get nearly enough love. In swoops Primal Palate to rectify the situation [14], along with beets (another underrated food) and spinach.
  • The black sheep of chowders, Manhattan clam [15], looks pretty darn delicious after Cheeseslave’s treatment.

Time Capsule

One year ago (April 18 – April 24)

Comment of the Week

“Urban Dictionary Word of the Day for April 6 – net lag

A feeling like jetlag that happens after you use your computer after sunset and the bright backlight tricks your body into thinking it’s still daytime.”
