Weekend Link Love – Edition 52

By Mark Sisson

Here’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.”

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.

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!

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.
