  1. Loved Elle’s interview of Ben Greenfield…such an interesting guy. While I have no intention of hunting down my food or foraging for it, he brings up some interesting concepts. Some of that reminded me of Katy Bowman’s ideas about movement. And totally making Waldorf salad…my mom used to make that for me as a kid all the time.

  2. Thanks for opening up some seriously sexy pillow talk: Hey, baby, let’s clear out some deleterious mutations.

  3. “The Secret Life of Pain”, fascinating article, the power of the mind is one of the key components to optimal health that I’ve pushed to the background for many decades, to my detriment.

  4. Please, for the love of all that is holy, you use ANCHOVIES in a Puttanesca, not freakin’ sardines!

      1. I’ll concede that I’m not the life of the party, but if you’re going to have the street woman’s sauce, you need to be discerning in your choice of fish.

  5. My copy of Eric Orton’s ‘Cool Impossible’ happens to be right next to my signed copy of ‘Primal Endurance’. And rightly so!

  6. I stopped watching that Netflix documentary after 15 minutes. Not that I can’t handle opposing viewpoints, but it was so heavily loaded with scare tactics without much to back it up. Glad to see a scientific publication quickly debunking it.
