Weekend Link Love – Edition 52

weekend link loveHere’s a mouthwatering dessert recipe from Girl Gone Primal. I’ll just let the picture do the talking.

Via IseekTruth, cows these days–they’re eating more gummi bears than ever. (thanks, @paleo_princess)

You probably already know that I’m not the biggest advocate of The Biggest Loser. Head over to MizFit to watch Sal Marinello’s commentary on the show. He speaks the truth.

While I usually applaud unusual sports if not simply for the sake of fun, I believe Cheese Rolling breaks Primal Blueprint law #9: “Avoid Stupid Mistakes” and perhaps law #10 as well: “Use Your Brain.”

Does the sun make you sneeze? FitSugar explains why.

In the eat-one-thing-only fad diet contest, the winner (read: loser) this week is from New Zealand. Red Bull does not a meal make.

From Suite 101, Canada wants to fortify candy bars with vitamins. Eh? (thanks for finding this one, Johnny!)

Grok may have invented the wheel, but these folks went nuts with the concept.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. By the way Mark, the woman who drank all those Red Bull drinks was a New Zealander not an Aussie!

  3. Auckland is not in Australia. I still can’t believe some Americans don’t know this.

  4. Thanks for the mention, Mark! And my Sony Ericsson C905 (yes, a phone) thanks you for putting aside its limitations in order to value the scrumptiousness of the subject!

    If you thought that photo was appealing, check out the happy-snap of last night’s dessert at the end of my latest blog post! Yum!

  5. With regards to the story about Canada wanting to fortify chocolate bars, up here it’s being sold as “intended to bring our food laws into closer alignment with US law” so that manufacturers can sell the same junk on both sides of the imaginary line.
