Is dairy paleo? Revising history with new persectives on flocks of goats, femur bones and feckless nutritionism

A few decades ago, people of Paleo were universally against dairy. Today, the attitude towards dairy is undergoing a transformation. Still, the official word on dairy is a luke-warm maybe rather than the resounding yes I think it deserves to be. I believe many of us can add dairy into our diet not just for good health, but also to more accurately reproduce a true Paleolithic era diet.

Giving Thanks to Your Low-Carb Ancestors: A Recipe for Brain Health

A lot of folks keen on losing weight have been convinced that a diet low in fat and protein and high in carbohydrates is the way to go.

That’s why, odds are, this year someone at your Thanksgiving table will be giving thanks without giving your perfectly browned holiday turkey a second look. Instead they’ll be opting to load their plate with their favorite high-carb “health foods”—sweet potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.

Luke reveals how his appearance has altered his life, and why Deep Nutrition highlights science showing that looks matter to more than just our ego, and why the ideal dietary program must be one that provides for ideal growth. When doctors advise pregnant women about a good diet for their baby's future, if they get it wrong, not only will the pregnancy suffer, the child's growth will suffer and he or she may not be as tall, as strong, as smart, or as attractive.

Zucchini No-Pasta low-carb Lasagne

For gardeners -- and gardener's neighbors -- coping with the mid summer zucchini run, you may think you've got too much zucchini until you've tried this delicious no-noodle, low-carb optionally vegetarian lasagne.
