Today we have two more awesome low-carb friends to share some room with Jimmy and Mindy on the Virtual Porch in registered dietitian Margaret Tosi and chiropractor Dr. John Mitchell. Listen in as our distinguished panel discusses the folly of “just eat less” for weight loss, what real Olympians say they eat, actor Alec Baldwin making the switch to low-carb Paleo, the real dangers of junk food (and it ain’t the fat in it!), another positive Paleo diet success news story, a new study showing better blood sugar control with a low-carb diet than a low-fat one (DUH!) and an awesome compilation of the research supporting low-carb diets from former guest Tom Nikkola. Plus, both Margaret and Dr. Mitchell have some delicious low-carb recipes to tickle your taste buds and nourish your body well. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about the health headlines of the day!

RECIPES
From Dr. John Mitchell:
Protein Bar
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup almonds
1 cup chopped dates
4 Table spoons coconut butter
3 Tablespoon coconut oil
2 eggs
2 scoops protein powder
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup shredded coconut
10 drops Stevia
In a food processor, put both nuts and chop into small pieces
In a large bowl, put nuts, dates, protein powder….mix throughly
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter, coconut butter, and coconut oil together using low heat.
When dissolved, add vanilla, Stevia, and cinnamon.
Pour into nut/date/protein powder…mix throughly.
Put eggs into mix, and stir throughly.
In 8×8 pan, coat bottom and sides with butter.
Put mixture into pan, press firmly into pan, sprinkle shredded coconut on top, and press/work that into the mixture.
Bake at 300 degrees, covered with foil, for 25 minutes
Then remove foil, and bake for 5-7 minutes until lightly toasted on top.
Veggie Dip
1 pint of sour cream
1 heaping tablespoon Better Than Bouillon (chicken flavor is best)
1/3 squeezed lemon
1 T dill powder
1 T onion powder
1/4 c feta cheese
pepper for taste
Mix all together. Use as veggie dip, sauce for any meats, just about anything! This one I use for dipping into with veggies:(not really “paleo”, but it is all dairy fat, so no issues with milk lactose, milk proteins, etc.
Another recipe (one of my “favorites”…lol):
-Large skillet
-6 slices of bacon
-Cook, eat, and enjoy!!!

    The Cheesy Chicken recipe looks good, but not completed. Please finish it as I want to try it. Thanks and keep this stuff up.

    Hillarious episode. Aussies think Weet-bix is the most nutritious food on the planet. The Institute of Sport selected it as their official cereal. A headline in one of our newspapers said: They eat what? Food secrets of the Olympic athletes. A registered dietition recommended that they drink beetroot juice to improve heart health and athletic performance. So, how are we doing? Our medal tally is 24th after Ethopia. Kazakhstan is 7th and Belarus is 18.

  • New listener here-really enjoyed it! I love being able to laugh about the ridiculous (yet, sad) diet mentalities of today with you guys! About that “gluten free oreo”-i saw this today and thought of you guys…

    (not exactly paleo, but replace the spelt with coconut flour and you have an OK oreo cookie;))

    looking forward to catching up & listening to some more podcasts!
