Weekly roundup: Friday potluck

Posted Apr 12 2013 5:14pm
Back and not at all well rested after a brief " vacation... "

...Welcome to another installment of the weekly roundup we all know and love:  Friday potluck !

Food Fact and Fiction

Evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk of the University of California–Riverside explains the fact and fiction around the paleo diet in a recent article on Slate... it's definitely food for thought.

But on the flip side, it's worth keeping in mind that there's an entire industry dedicated to making junk food addictive .

Stupid People Tricks

Because there's always room for one more ridiculous product on an infomercial... Forget doing situps. Just strap a plastic grid to your beer belly, and poof. That keg o' lard turns into a six pack!
Just $9.95 plus shipping and handling!* And we'll throw in a second one... ABSOLUTELY FREE (*Fine Print: Shipping and handling costs a million dollars, and our product doesn't work, but that's your problem not ours!)

In My Kitchen

This week I made the Whole Wheat Sesame Soda Bread from Epicurious. It was a quick and delicious side dish alongside a spicy beans-and-greens soup.

I substituted flax seed for the sesame seeds, used buckwheat flour in place of whole wheat, and whole wheat "pastry" flour in place of all-purpose (white) flour, with excellent (and higher-fiber!) results.

Quote of the week:
"There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither."
Alan Cohen

Happy Friday, friends!
