Your Nose Should Know – When Fats Become Oxidized

Over the last week, I’ve been slowly working my way through a bag of rancid shelled sunflower seeds because I hate to waste anything. They weren’t absolutely terrible, but definitely not tasty either. I finally decided to look up what the negative repercussions might be and now I know that eating rancid nuts and seeds can increase risk of cancer and atherosclerosis, and it can cause inflammation in many parts of the body. I promptly threw the rest of the seeds away after reading this article.

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars (made from almond milk pulp)

I make homemade almond milk two or three times per week. We love almond milk in our house. But it really sucks having to throw it away all the pulp leftover because it seems like such a waste. Well waste no more! Instead use the leftover pulp to make these tasty cookie dough bars. We actually stopped trying to find ways to reuse almond milk pulp and just leave it in. Our Vitamix does a pretty good job of blending up real good, but we have to shake it up every time we use it.

One Ingredient 100% Mexican “NOT CORN” tortillas– LEGIT! and Paleo

Fitness fanatic Kai Sedgwick claims to be in great shape despite only eating MCDONALD’S

Gross. He ate McDondalds for breakfast, lunch and dinner, everyday for a month, while also doing strenuous workouts. He claims to have lost 27% of his bodyfat and gained 2.7kg in muscle mass. He seems to be a fit and health-conscious guy. He just wanted to see what would happen by eating only Mickey D’s. Interesting experiment, but probably not safe in the long-term.

Nutritional Cures for Damaged Teeth

I learned a TON from this post! I don’t know if it was because I was vegan or because of my lip rings, but while I was vegan, I incurred extreme gum recession on my front teeth. I removed the rings before my wedding last year. Anyway, despite the cause, the newly exposed teeth were extremely sensitive and were really painful some days. I didn’t do anything about it because I thought there was nothing I could do. Well after deciding to go paleo, the pain went away and it might be because I stopped eating fruit. Not entirely, but I cut back a lot. When I was vegan, fruit was a large part of my diet, but now I eat a piece of fruit maybe three times per week and my teeth never hurt anymore. Now I want to implement everything else I’ve learned from this article.

How-to Make Coconut Milk Yogurt

I can’t wait to try this. I love coconut milk yogurt, but I don’t like how expensive it is or all the weird ingredients in the store-bought version so I don’t buy it anymore.
