No Meatless Mondays in This Revolution

Monday, March 24, 2014 19:56 No Comments

Petersen’s Hunting has published an interesting piece on meat as a staple of a hunter-gatherer, heart-healthy, culinary-loving society: “The Meat Eater Revolution.” The gist of the article is that hunting is on the rise after years of participation decline.

David Schorr is under intense scrutiny to determine whether or not he is a “fit” parent. You see, he refused to take his son to McDonald’s for crap, but instead wanted to take him to a favorite, local restaurant for some real food. The child threw a tantrum, the ex-wife called a shrink to testify [...]

The Coca-Cola anti-obesity campaign has been a laughingstock, especially in the ancestral health and traditional food communities. The initial ad launch by Coca-Cola was mocked in this spot with a custom voiceover. Now Coca-Cola Spain has produced an ad titled, ‘What if we stand up?” In this ad, the chairs are in control, and if [...]

Fat-Phobic Ninnies

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 21:41 1 Comment

The Wall Street Journal ran a great article last week by Ron Rosenbaum: “Let Them Eat Fat.” The hysterical crusade against fat has become a veritable witch hunt. With New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s ban on supersize sodas (now temporarily thwarted) and the first lady’s campaign to push leaves and twigs (i.e., salad) on [...]

Butter, Eggs, and Meat: Wins Wars

Thursday, February 7, 2013 7:10 No Comments

Or so stated the US government in its WWII propaganda pre-federal food pyramid days. What’s funny is that the message is not “lean” meats or “egg whites.” Just meat and eggs. Fat for victory? According to many recent stories, the state’s paid killers are too fat to fight, thanks to decades of the government’s food dictates, hyper-promotion [...]

As if making a crappy sandwich for your child’s lunch every day isn’t lazy enough, it gets better: now there’s a sandwich in a … can? Yes, Candwich. The company refers to this as a “healthy lunch and snack food for kids.” So what is it – a lunch (meal) or a snack food? On [...]

I experimented with a Moroccan Lamb Heart Kabob recipe. I marinated the lamb heart in cayenne pepper, cumin, pepper, salt, paprika, raw coconut vinegar, and sesame oil for 8 hours. I put it on a skewer with some pepper chunks and grilled it on the Weber. The taste and texture was incredible. I am already [...]

Anarcho-Bone Marrow

Sunday, December 30, 2012 14:44 3 Comments

Bone marrow is a very wonderful yet unappreciated food here in America. Mostly, Americans will say, “You eat what?” Less for them is not necessarily a bad thing – it means more for me, and at prices that are pretty economical. Bone marrow is popular in Filipino, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, Indian, and French cultures.
