David Perlmutter, MD was the guest this week on Robb Wolf’s The Paleo Solution. Dr. Perlmutter is the author of the new book Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers, which gives us yet another reason to eliminate grains and reduce carbohydrate consumption.
Crohn’s disease in the news
Research out of Australia indicates that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) infusions may be a viable treatment for Crohn’s disease patients who are not responding to conventional therapy.
Around the paleo blogosphere
Loved this “dramatic reading” of the Primal Blueprint from Mark’s Daily Apple.
Eileen at Phoenix Helix wrote an update on her experience with the paleo autoimmune protocol so far. She has successfully reintroduced eggs, which is great news!
I thought this post from Tammy Credicott on the Paleo Parents blog about the role of constant “treats” in the lives of kids today was spot on. At risk of sounding like a crotechty old lady, it wasn’t like this when we were kids and I think we were better off for it.
Real Food Forager wrote about a new study that gives us another compelling reason to eat fermented foods, something I’m starting to dabble in.
Elsewhere in the food world
It was goat week at Modern Farmer, a magazine website I just discovered. We live in a narrow townhouse on a tiny lot with HOA rules that forbid livestock of any kind, but I love the idea of urban farming. Bookmarking for my future dreams…
Everyone is talking about the new ad from Chipotle that takes a swipe at big agri-business. It is gorgeous and very moving. Here’s hoping it isn’t just preaching to the choir.
This satirical piece on Whole Foods burned up my social media news feeds this week. It definitely had some rings of truth to it, but I’m not sure how I feel about the jab at people with dietary restrictions.
Eating with my eyes
Going to be making this simple recipe for avocado oil salad dressing from Things My Belly Likes.
I’m not eating nightshades right now on the autoimmune protocol, but have some eggplants in the freezer that I’d like to turn into this baba ganoush recipe from Food52 if I can reintroduce them successfully.
