The ever-elusive barefoot dress shoe may soon be upon us – with your help. The folks behind the Primal Professional are trying to raise capital for the project through pre-orders [7]. Go grab one today (for tomorrow) and help this stuff hit the corporate world!

Are you ready for Super Broccoli [8]?

Sean Croxton and I just can’t quit each other. I appeared on his Underground Wellness [9] radio show and answered a ton of questions from his readers, live. Go give it a listen [10].

Even BPA-free plastics contain chemicals with estrogenic activity that leach into food and liquid, Chris Kresser explains in a recent post [11]. And they may be making you fat, sick, and infertile (you won’t catch that tagline on a Tupperware ad anytime soon).

Richard Nikoley asks a simple question [12]. What’s your answer?

From the Sock Doc, learn how connective tissue repairs itself [13] – and how we can provide the tools it needs.

NPR’s take on the Paleo diet [14] was perhaps one of the weakest I’ve ever seen. Luckily, folks represented in the comment section. Go join in on the fun.

What’s this, you say? Giving kids stand-up desks leads to increased calorie expenditure? [15] Pretty obvious, you might say, but I’m just glad they’re doing studies on stand-up desks. Now let’s figure out what it does to learning and productivity.

I thought this was pretty clever [17].

Comment of the Week

Getting rid of the cell phone is like silencing a screaming monkey for good. I ditched mine years ago. Even if you don’t live near nature, getting rid of the phone helps you become a little more human again.

– Commenter knifegill on the “Spiritual Encounters in Nature [22]” post. I appreciated the figurative language and the call for a break from the cell phone, but then again, I’m a sucker for monkeys. Even screaming ones.
