Peanut Butter Bread Variation

By now it’s probably clear to you that I view bread as a butter delivery device. That was the role assigned to it in the flax bread and Paleo crackers posts. The thing about butter though is, you can never have enough delivery vehicles for it. Being always on a lookout for those, I couldn’t let the recipe posted by Sandy of Sandy’s Simple Recipes and More go unnoticed. Or untested for that matter. And an intriguing recipe it is. Peanut butter bread?

Dietary Guidelines, Once Again

United States Department of Agriculture just published a new report on a dietary assessment, essentially reflecting how we followed (or didn’t) their guidelines. This document covers the time period from 1970 to 2014, which closely approximates the time from adopting low-fat dietary advice to our days. Knowing how obesity and diabetes exploded over this time, it’s interesting to see whether we followed the advice or ate our way to diabetes against it.

Bone Broth – Universal Healthy Comfort Food in a Slow Cooker

If you follow modern foodie trends, you are likely to be aware of what some consider “new fad” – bone broth. In my view, they couldn’t be farther from the truth. New? Fad? Come on, this is one of the most traditional dishes that grandmas all over the world made for kids that happened to catch the flu or cold.

Two Fiber-Rich Recipes

As you may or may not know, in regards to weight loss for the last two months I am in a maintenance mode, as described in detail in the last chapters of The Time Machine Diet. Aside from occasional fasting days, mostly I eat by (not too strict) LCHF – Low Carb High Fat regimen. Generally, it’s a good idea not to let your body settle into a routine, and keep it guessing so to speak, by periodic changing the ways you eat.

Food Guide and You

Sometimes things that happen “up there” remain, at least for a time, largely abstract for most of us. Sometimes they are of immediate concern for us, as they touch on something significant, with which we deal on daily basis. And what can fit that description better than food?

In December of 2016, a group of almost 200 Canadian Physicians and Allied Health Care providers sent an open letter to Health Canada, urging to rework the dietary guidelines. The letter suggests making an emphasis on real food, on actual scientific evidence and, well, common sense. To illustrate just how far from common sense current recommendations are, let me quote from the letter:

Is Your Snack Plotting to Kill You?

Sad to say, but it probably is. Worse yet, it’s doing so while pretending to be your friend – the one you miss, wait for impatiently, and embrace when finally get to see. How treacherous. If you feel betrayed, you should – and not only by the snack, but first and foremost by a misleading nutritional advice
