Weekend Link Love – Edition 199

Posted By Mark Sisson On July 22, 2012 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 53 Comments

There’s a battle brewing over flip-flops [7]. While Bob Thompson (of the Institute for Preventive Foot Health) makes a mistake when he criticizes the lack of “heel support and structural support… on that little slab of rubber,” he makes a good point that “taking your five toes and grabbing your shoe” is not normal and could lead to problems. Where do you stand?

What’s better than flip-flops?  Zero-drop huaraches for your kids [8].

Neanderthals used medicinal plants [9] (surely with a prescription only), new fossil evidence indicates.

Speaking of Neanderthals, they sported massively muscled right arms [10] because of their propensity to… scrape bits of flesh off of animal hide to make pretty clothes?

I had a chat [11] with Max and Josh, co-creators of Caveman College, about maintaining a Primal life in college. If you’re a college student trying to make this lifestyle work, you’ll love their blog.

Physical inactivity is deadly [12]. Get up and go for a walk after you read this (and take someone with you).

Arnold blogs [13]. Do you have the Spark?

Lucky cows [14], huh? I guess red wine really does pair well with red meat.

Recipe Corner

  • Beef rendang [15], because Indonesian food is woefully underrated and tough to find, so why not make your own?
  • Since good strawberries are easier to find than truly good tomatoes, try this recipe for strawberry salsa [16].

Time Capsule

One year ago (July 22 – July 28)

Comment of the Week

I’m addicted to spinach. Did funny things to my arm though…:P

You and the Neanderthals [19] both, Nionvox [20].
