RECIPE CORNER

  • Now you take a leg of lamb, some cumin, a few beets, an Akkadian translator, throw it in a pot, add some beer. Baby, you got yourself a Mesopotamian stew going.
  • It’s summer, so you should be grilling chicken. Here’s how to do a whole one.

COMMENT OF THE WEEK

Coconut oil also removes mascara very well. Put some on a tissue or cotton pad, apply to eye for a couple seconds, and wipe. Clean eyelids.

– Good tip, Susanne. I think I’ll give it a shot.

My take-away from all the links is… eat lots of chocolate.

“American GIs during World War 2 craved fresh eggs” I first read GI as “Gastro Intestinal”. I’ve been reading too many paleo/primal/ancestral health blogs!

Yeah! At first, I read “Glycemic Index”. The paleosphere lexicon is getting to me.

I am ready for the mesopotamian recipe: years ago I saw a movie with The Rock where he and his bothers were Akkadian, so I will not need any translator for the recipe.
Looking forward for some mayan heart recipes!

It took a lot of courage for Dana Carney to refute her earlier conclusions about “Power Poses”. Too bad her co-researcher / co-author does not have the same integrity.

on the “clutch” article, it reminds me of an interview I saw with Yankees second baseman Mariano Duncan (1996). He was clutch, and someone asked how he handled the pressure. He said, in his broken English: “all I do it think about how I’m about to get the game winning hit! I just think about how great that will be and then I do it. That’s all.”

Thanks for the validation to continue eating chocolate. Not that I really needed any! Loved Elle’s repeat interview with Cassie Parks. This is one of my favorite podcasts because of the diverse topics. Everything is related to wellness and living your best life, but it’s about so much more than diet and exercise.
