Weekend Link Love – Edition 70

Posted By Mark Sisson On November 8, 2009 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 20 Comments

Meatonnaise, mayonnaise made from meat fat. Is it possible? Serious Eats attempts to turn mayo-fantasy into reality by creating mayonnaise using beef, duck, and lamb fat [7]. Read the post and you may even catch a glimpse of the fabled mayo-unicorn, baconnaise. (thanks, double_t [8]!)

Kellogg is scared of the swine flu. Or more accurately, they’re scared of consumers lashing out against their odious marketing tactics… [9] (thanks Dan, and here’s a pic of Kellogg at their worst [10])

I’ll stop lambasting The Biggest Loser when they stop making it so easy… most recently they’ve backed a contraption of spectacular, unnatural movement that looks like the bastard offspring between an elliptical machine and a tricycle. I don’t know what’s worse about this Street Strider commercial [11], the looks of forced glee on the faces of contestants trying it out, or a fitness model using McDonald’s “I’m lovin’ it” slogan to describe the one-use-before-collecting-dust-in-garage device.

For a touch of the weird, The Great Fitness Experiment explores EFT, or “emotional freedom techniques [12]” that involve thumping your own face to fight sugar cravings. Absolute malarkey or legitimate strategy? Read and discuss.

I think Andy Sandberg might be onto something with his treatment of energy drinks and birthday cake… [13]

Primal Recipe Corner

  • Try Free the Animal‘s updated Coconut Milk Chicken Mole [14], because nothing goes better with chocolate and coconut than poultry.
