Weekend Link Love – Edition 119

Tasha of Voracious is a vegan no more. Her story is a good one, and so are the many supportive comments she received; feel free to add your own.

I originally wrote Epic Meal Time off as a gimmicky, sophomoric vlog. I haven’t changed my mind, but hats off to the wicked creativity and meat insanity that is their TurBaconEpic.

Looking for a natural deodorant? A really natural deodorant? Head over to Mihow, and learn how to make your own!

Turkey Day may be over, but it’s not too late for Poultry Slam. If you’ve never listened to the funny, sad, and wonderful stories of This American Life, I’d suggest streaming the 1995 broadcast of their very first poultry slam (Turkey-themed) episode.

And finally, I know I’m a month late, but here’s the zombie food pyramid. It would fit right in with these.

Recipe Corner

  • Turns out, last week’s tasty bacon-wrapped salmon cakes originated from Life as a Plate. I can’t believe I didn’t have this site on my RSS feed. AndreAnna’s recipe database is a treasure trove of mouthwonders. Go there now!
  • Primal Wisdom took one of my cookie recipes and made a few adjustments that I’m frankly jealous of. Read the Primal Chocolate Chip Cookie Experiment.

Time Capsule

One year ago (November 21 – 27)

  • The Vegetarian Myth – It isn’t often I do book reviews, but this one is just too good to miss. Lierre Kieth is a former vegan (like Tasha, above) who really did her research about the ethics behind what we eat and why. This is a must read for Primal folks and vegetarians alike.
  • Diet as Dogma – When do the rules get in the way of the game? As enthusiasm for the Primal movement grows, it is important not to become dismissive of new ideas of health simply for the sake of sticking to the original principles you have come to trust.
