MANKIND’S LAST CHANCE?

default image

  And in case you missed it, this is a TED talk by Alan Savory, “the man who killed 40,000 elephants,” in a misguided attempt to save the grasslands.   “There is ONLY ONE OPTION left to climatologists and scientists…and that is to do the unthinkable and to use livestock bunched and moving as a proxy for former herds and predators and mimic nature. There is no other alternative left to mankind,” ~ Alan Savory http://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change?language=en

EPITAPH FOR AN EGG

How do you like your eggs? The best way to prepare eggs, except for raw, which brings a different set of issues to the table, is poached. Lightly cooked whites and lovely, liquid yolks retain all their nutrients, including their precious, undamaged cholesterol. British chef, Heston Blumenthal, demonstrates his method for Perfect Poached Eggs in the YouTube video below. His secret is to use very fresh eggs. My daughter’s family has backyard chickens and they write the date on each egg to show when it was collected, so I decided to see for myself if the chef’s passion…

VIDEO #2: THREE EZ LIME DRINKS

EZ LIMEADE Sweetened beverages are said to be the #1 source of calories in the diet of Americans.* Each 12-ounce serving of regular cola contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, usually high-fructose corn syrup. Why so much? Carbonated water tastes bitter and it takes a lot of sugar to counteract it. (Taste a flat Cola to see how sickeningly sweet it is.) Make your own drinks for your family using fresh ingredients and get the sugar and caffeine out. Per serving: 1 cup water 2 tablespoons…

HOLLYWOOD TRIP

I just got back from a trip to Los Angeles to make some cooking videos~I’ll let you know when and where they eventually show up. My son recently moved into a new place in Hollywood Hills and we shot the videos in his very small, but cute new kitchen. He posed with me for the picture above in the middle of the street beside his house with the “Hollywood” sign in the background. (c) 2012, Judy Barnes Baker, www.carbwars.blogspot.com

FEINMAN, WYLIE-ROSETT DEBATE LOW-CARB AND DIABETES AT SUNY

default image

 From Dr. Richard Feinman, 3:16 pm May 22: This is the YouTube of my debate with Judy Wylie-Rosett at Downstate. The students felt she did not answer my objections and, unfortunately we did not get usable questions from the audience so it probably was not exactly a debate but it is good that she was willing to engage in some kind of dialogue and the discussion will continue. http://youtu.be/q2paIsPfgmMhttp://www.youom/watch?v=q2paIsPfgmM7be
