Weekend Link Love – Edition 79

The Food & Dining section of the NY Times talks goats, fainting goats. And if you want these goats to live, eat them. That’s right, eat them to save them.

Not to be outdone by Food & Dining, the NY Times Business Section talks docs – documentaries about obesity. And who’s funding the latest fat doc? Why, Glaxo, the makers of the explosive-diarrhea weight loss pill, Alli! No conflict of interest there.

Green Guide created a beef label decoder which shows you just what those little “certified,” “verified,” and “approved” stickers mean. (thanks @ the 8 readers who emailed me the link, and Lifehacker, who found it)

Feasting on Fitness read my reading list and decided to make an addendum with several more great Primal blogs, books, and webstores. I second Kristy’s picks.

Fitness Spotlight recently started their own 30 Day Challenge. They’re already a week in, but it’s not too late to begin. Each day brings a new post with information on transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, plus a specific task to accomplish.

Recipe Corner

  • This week I heard someone say there was no such thing as Primal pizza. 4 Better @ CrossFit Chron says otherwise with this healthy pizza recipe.
  • Caveman Food serves up shrimp curry, heavy on coconut and heavy on deliciousness.
  • Poach your eggs in marinara. Food Renegade did.

Comment of the Week

Amen to that! I have recently developed an allergy to mascara and I’m learning to like my face without a lot of makeup (this from a 36 year old former teenage goth queen). I only wear concealer and lipstick most of the time, and I’m seeing beauty in myself that I never saw before simply from not being conditioned to expect the look of makeup.

It’s most definitely a reflection of emotional security and self-love more than anything else. The more wisdom I get under my belt, the less crap I put on my face.
