Jiggly Cheesecake

My low-carb, stovetop version of Japanese Jiggly Cheesecake is much less tedious and it gets its jiggle in a totally different way, but it jiggles just the same!

ROAST PORK WITH MOJO SAUCE

Crisp, succulent, roast pork with onions in a spicy, fragrant, citrus sauce. Prepare to fall in love with the flavors of this famous Cuban dish. Low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, Paleo.   I discovered what all the fuss was about the first time I had Mojo Roast Pork in a local place called The Twisted Cafe in Woodenville, WA. The owner based his menu on his mother’s traditional Cuban recipes. After I tasted his mojo pork, I went straight home and starting looking for recipes, partly…

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR PERIOD ON A LOW CARB DIET? IT’S NOT THE DIET, IT’S THE FLAX.

default image

I saw this coming. I hate to say, “I told you so,” but I’ve been warning about this for a long time. Low-carb and Paleo diets are taking the blame for a problem caused by eating too much flax. Naturopath, Dr. Lara Briden, gave a presentation at The Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand symposium on women’s reproductive health. She reported that she was concerned about the number of young women who have lost their periods on a low-carb diet. “It is real and it is happening,” she says…

THE PERFECT HUMAN DIET

default image

The USDA is now advocating a plant-based, very low-fat diet. What can we do beyond writing letters? Here’s a chance for you to help get the truth out. I blogged about a fantastic documentary called “In Search of the Perfect Human Diet” in a previous post after I had a chance to preview an excerpt: http://carbwars.blogspot.com/2009/10/in-search-of-perfect-human-diet.html. Some of the world’s leading scientists in human evolutionary nutrition were involved in this international endeavor, including: • Dr. Loren Cordain (author of The Paleo Diet, Colorado State University)…

Bill the Butcher

We have a new butcher shop in my area called Bill the Butcher. William Von Schneidau is a master butcher and professional chef who says his mission is to bring truly great meat back to the neighborhood. He sells local, grass-fed, dry-aged meats, free range poultry and eggs, natural pork, wild seafood and house made bacon, pate, and sausages. He also features dairy products from a local creamery that come in glass bottles (with a hefty deposit) and fine wines and cheeses. Every time I’ve…

THE MOUSE VERSES THE GAUCHO

If I hadn’t been so busy, I would have written a review of Disney World in Florida similar to what Dr. Eades wrote about Disney Land in California: http://proteinpower.com/drmike/weight-loss/disney-small-world-ride-a-casualty-of-the-obesity-epidemic/. I went there in July with the rest of the family in an effort to be a good sport. (I had been there in the summer once before and sworn I’d never do that again.) I found it to be just as he described but with 95-degree weather and 95 percent humidity. Except for the hang-glider…

NATURAL FRUIT

Here is a picture from a trip we took a few years ago to Brassempouy, the famous excavation site from the Upper Palaeolithic in Aquitaine, France. One of the oldest known human artifacts, a tiny female head carved out of ivory called la dame de Brassem-pouy, was found here. It is dated to 22,000 years ago. . A young archeologist who was attempting to re-create the stone-age settlement was working down below the museum when our party of four visited, and he gave us a…

Minding Your Brain

default image

If you haven’t already found Dr. McCleary’s Website, http://www.drmccleary.com/, don’t waste another minute. The brilliant author of The Brain Trust Program has already posted eight not-to-be-missed articles about the care and feeding of your brain. His latest, explains the chicken or the egg conundrum of how we could have developed the kind of intelligence necessary to provide our brains with a nutrient dense diet before we actually had brains capable of the skill and cunning needed to procure such a diet. Living along the shoreline,…
