Meet Mark

The blog post that most piqued my interest: “The Secret Life of Trees”—Another tree article? Yep. As you read, consider the dichotomy between the organic, bottoms-up nature of tree community support systems and the government-ordained, top-down system we have. Which is more Primal?

  1. I like eggs. I eat them several times a week. They have been “exonerated” from health bomb status (which is nice, although I never believed they were bad in the first place). But the idea of eating 3-4 egg yolks every day is off-putting. The other thing is, rats aren’t people. Well, sometimes they are, but that’s another story.

  2. Very impressed with the Curry video, amazing, he made a fan out of me

  3. That electronic cutlery is beyond alarming. What happened to appreciating the taste of delicious savory foods? And zapped tasted buds? No thank you!

  4. “Eating 3-4 egg yolks a day could improve your blood lipids and reduce liver and belly fat, if this rat study is to be believed.”

    It’s been shown in various studies. This is not the egg yolks doing that per se, it’s the choline in them. You can eat as many eggs, or you can eat 1 egg (if trying to reduce animal protein), and get 2 pills of choline. Same thing, really.

  5. Just finished listening to Elle’s interview with Dave Asprey and loved it! Her explanation of all things thyroid was excellent, and I completely agree with her answers to Dave’s question about kicking more ass. Great interview!. And speaking of Elle, and podcasts, I loved being a guest on the Primal Blueprint podcast! And can’t wait to read the Paleo Primer…it’s next on my list.
