Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with host Leah Williamson, NTP and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Keto, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

Today we present to you our final podcast of 2012 in Episode 65 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie along with their two guest friends chime in with more opinions on the latest and greatest health headlines to give their unique low-carb perspective on them. We're taking the next two months off from the podcast but will come back refreshed and ready to roll again with lots of new low-carb and Paleo bloggers in the new year. We are a LISTENER-SUPPORTED podcast and appreciate all the fantastic donations that so many of you have provided us. If you enjoy what you hear on "Low-Carb Conversations" and want to help us out, then you can make a donation to keep us on the air in 2013.

We're loaded with an awesome hour-long conversation for you today as Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie welcome two new low-carb podcasters with opinions to spare. They are Kelly McCausey from the "Low Carb Mom" blog and Lynn Terry from the "Traveling Low Carb" blog who are the co-hosts of a brand new podcast called the "90 Day Low Carb Challenge." Listen in as we talk about some dubious "signs" you'll live to be 100 years old, vegan Dr. Joel Fuhrman's nonsensical nutritional advice for being healthy, whether beans are a good option for controlling diabetes, how new research shows moderate weight loss does very little to lower heart disease risk in people with diabetes, whether heavy statin drug use can actually lead to greater vascular calcification and whether obsessing over your exercise routine is doing more harm than good. Plus, don't miss the recipe time at the end of today's episode. It's our final episode of the year and we invite you to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

We've got another great show to share with you today in Episode 64 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Your congenial co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie stand ready to lead the conversation challenging the latest health headlines that are permeating our culture. There's a lot of garbage information being put out there that real people are unfortunately believing is true which is why we are privileged to bring you this show week after week. If you appreciate the service we are providing with this podcast, then don't forget we are LISTENER-SUPPORTED and rely on YOU our listeners to keep it on the air. If you enjoy what you hear on "Low-Carb Conversations" and want to help us out, then you can make a donation so we can keep pumping out information that takes on the conventional wisdom that pervades diet, fitness and health. THANKS so much for your amazing support!

We've got a fantastic show for you today as Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie welcome to the Virtual Porch a wonderful husband-wife team to share their opinions about the health headlines. They are Louise Hendon from the "Ancestral Chef" blog and her husband Jeremy Hendon from the "Simple Health" blog who are the owners of two excellent businesses to help Paleo and low-carb enthusiasts alike: Louise's Foods and Paleo Living Magazine. Listen in to get their take on why they believe gluten-free eating is a big deal backed by science and personal experience, why the battle against wheat is justified, whether a Harvard study explaining Atkins diet weight regain is valid or not, a "bad science" research example claiming countries that eat the most chocolate win the most Nobel prizes (yeah right!), reasons why the severely obese category is growing at a lightning pace, how not getting enough sleep is detrimental not just to your body but also your fat cells, Dr. Andrew Weil's new focus on carbohydrate density, and Chris Kresser's recent column dismissing the fears over the nutrate and nutrite concerns of bacon. And Louise has a scrumptious, mouthwatering recipe for you to try in your own kitchen at the end of today's show. We can't wait to have you join in on the conversation today, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Listen in today as Jimmy, Cassie, Victoria and Stanley chime in about why the Atkins and Dukan diet are NOT the same, a grocery store in New York state giving away FREE statins, an HMO offering up a not-so-healthy health dessert, revelations that the recent egg yolks as bad as cigarettes study was tied to Big Pharma, a discussion of the continued fear of saturated fat, why our hunter-gatherer ancestors never got fat and a gentle warning about letting diet bias get in the way of our nutritional education (yes, even those of us who support healthy low-carb living!). Plus, as always, we've got some delicious low-carb recipes to tantalize your taste buds at the end of the show.

We’ve got a fabulous show in store for you in Episode 49 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti rockin’ it with two more fabulous low-carb friends. If you missed the BIG NEWS last week that we’ve decided to go to a LISTENER-SUPPORTED format with this podcast, then I wanted to invite you to make a donation to help keep this show on the air. We were blown away by the outpouring of love and financial support after making this announcement last week and we are so grateful to each and every one of our incredible listeners who have told us how much this podcast means to them. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us continue providing new episodes of “Low-Carb Conversations” and we’ve got another spectacular hour-long episode to share with you today!

We feature a Philadelphia, PA-based Paleo fitness expert named Roger Dickerman(who Jimmy met at PaleoFX in March) from Relentless Fitness and the Senior Nutritionist at the UK-based low-carb GoLower company Emily Maguire who works with the incredible low-carb advocate Hannah Sutter who Jimmy has interviewed previously on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Listen in as our prestigious panel chimes in on the recent sugary soda ban in New York City, a new study that says being obese doesn’t necessarily mean you have heart health risks, a history lesson on how highly-processed omega-6-rich vegetable oils replaced natural animal fats, whether too much Vitamin D can be as problematic as too little, and the notion that once you’ve been fat people will always look at you as being fat. It’s a full slate of interesting topics for you today, so sit back, relax and enjoy the conversation!

NOTE: Apologies for the “rumble” during this podcast. We had a poor Skype connection with one of our guests. THANK YOU for your understanding!

We're so happy to be back at it again in Episode 48 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and the prodigal child Mindy Noxon Iannotti back in her rightful place on the show after being gone since March. And we've also got some MAJOR changes to tell you about with the podcast. You'll immediately notice we no longer have any sponsorship ads at the beginning of the podcast. That's because beginning right now, we are totally listener-supported. Yep, we are focused on bringing a show dedicated to you, for you and about your healthy low-carb lifestyle. If you like what you hear, then we'd appreciate your financial support to help us keep this show on the air. We appreciate all of our faithful listeners and encourage you to make your contributions so we can keep the fun going: DONATE HERE!

In this special extended one-hour show (let us know if you like the longer episode or not), we feature a husband-wife team named Tom Nikkola and Vanessa Romero who joined us on the recent May 2012 Low-Carb Cruise. We were so impressed with them that we just knew they had to be on the podcast to talk about the health headlines of the day. Tom is the Director of Nutrition & Weight Management at Lifetime Fitness and his wife Vanessa blogs at "Healthy Living How To." Listen to their inspiring stories of low-carb success and then as they opine with Jimmy and Mindy about whether exercise is harmful, if exercise is equal to diet in terms of diabetes management, the idea that there's no such thing as cardio exercise, a new study proclaiming low-carb diets are good for the kidneys and if Dr. Atkins is to blame for confusion over carbs. Plus, don't miss Vanessa's mouthwatering melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate coconut cups recipe at the end. Get ready for a fun ride in today's super-sized, but oh-so-healthy episode of "Low-Carb Conversations!"

It's a fun-frolicking good time rock and roll today in Episode 45 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends featuring Jimmy's PaleoFX friends Darryl Edwards and Ashley Tudor! He met these two health superstars in person last month when he attended the PaleoFX conference in Austin, Texas and he decided to bring them on to comment on some recent health headlines that are sure to be conversation starters. Our lovely co-host Mindy is again out getting better from her recent surgery but that doesn't stop us from dishing out opinions on some pretty outrageous news items as of late including that asinine red meat will kill you study, Jimmy's 2009 blog post about these kind of red meat studies that still applies today, and and 7 million pounds of ammonia-treated "pink slime" meat (this brings a whole new meaning to the term "mystery meat") purchased by the government to be served in school lunches starting this Fall. Oh yeah, we had a lot to say about this stuff! Plus, don't miss the best part of the show when we share some incredible recipes that are quick and easy for your healthy low-carb. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk.

Asian Infused Lettuce Wraps by Lydia Shatney
http://divinehealthfromtheinsideout.com/2010/08/asian-infused-lettuce-wraps/

 

1 pound grass fed ground beef

1/4 pound of grass fed liver, pureed (optional)

1 head of leaf lettuce, bibb or butter lettuce

3 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 lime, juiced and zested

1 teaspoon red chili paste, or more to taste

2-3 scallions, minced

1/4 cup minced cilantro

splash of rice wine vinegar

splash of naturally fermented gluten free tamari or shoyu (soy sauce)

salt to taste

Heat a skillet with a bit of bacon grease or lard. Add the ground beef and cook on medium. Add the garlic, ginger, zest and lime juice, scallion, cilantro, chili paste, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce. Stir well until the meat is cooked through.

Remove from heat and place in a serving bowl. Rinse the head of lettuce and dry well. Place the clean leaves individually on a plate. Serve alongside the meat – scoop meat onto lettuce and wrap, roll or fold and enjoy!! These were such a success with my kids that I think these will have to stand in once in awhile instead of regular tacos on taco night!!

Paleo Chewy Granola Bars by Sarah Ballantyne (aka The Paleo Mom)

Ingredients:
1 ½ cups slivered almonds
2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
½ cup blanched almond flour
1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
¼ cup unsweetened, natural almond butter (or Peanut)
¼ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
¾ tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1½ Tbsp water
¾ cup mini chocolate chips or your favorite chopped dried fruit (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9”x13” baking pan with coconut oil.

2. Mix ground flax seed with water and let sit for 3-4 minutes.

3. Pulse pepitas in a food processor a couple of times to break up to the size of sunflower seeds.

4. Add coconut oil, almond butter, honey and vanilla to flax goop and mix well.

5. Add almond flour and baking soda and stir to combine.

6. Add slivered almonds, shredded coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and chocolate chips or dried fruit. Stir to combine.

7. Spoon batter into prepared baking pan. Spread out and flatten well with your hand or the back of a spatula.

8. Bake for 22-23 minutes, until golden brown. They will puff up slightly while baking, so immediately after removing from the oven, flatten the bars with the back of a spatula (or something else heat resistant and flat).

9. Let cool completely in pan before cutting into bars (I actually like to refrigerate before cutting). Cut into bars (I usually get 18-20) and wrap individual bars in plastic wrap for easy travel (optional). I prefer to store these in the refrigerator.

Bomb Diggity Bison Chili by Joey Cardillo

o 1 TBS raw certified organic extra virgin coconut oil
o Around 2 lbs of ground bison (but you can use other meat if desired)
o 1 organic onion (chopped up). We like to use white onion.
o 2 cups organic celery (chopped up)
o 2-3 cloves of organic garlic

o 1 jar of salsa (about a 12 ounce jar will work) or simply make your own. We like
pretty hot stuff so we use the spicy ones! Mild is cool also: just do what you like
best.
o Diced organic tomatoes, canned are ok but fresh are obviously better.
o 2 ½ tsp organic cumin
o 2-3 tsp organic chili powder
o 1-2 tsp organic thyme leaves
o 2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
o 1/2 cups organic green chiles

Sauté the onions, celery and garlic on low-medium heat for about 5 min. After
these are done sautéing, add the meat, chili powder, thyme and cumin (stir it up
for about 5 minutes so it all mixes up). Next pour your salsa in, add the tomatoes
and salt. Next come the green chiles. Let all of this simmer for at least an hour.

Make sure all ingredients are certified organic and meat is pasture-raised, grassfed organic. This stuff is bomb!

It’s another fabulous day for chatting about healthy low-carb living with our friends Mark Jeacoma and Tina Langston in Episode 398 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti packed in the conversation with their guest friends today discussing Paula Deen’s recent announcement that she has Type 2 diabetes, the misinformation that has been spread around out there about what causes diabetes (NEWSFLASH: it’s NOT the butter!), the New York Times column “The Fat Trap” by Tara Parker-Pope that says attempting weight loss is futile and Gary Taubes’ response to that column adding back in a bit of reality to the discussion. Plus, don’t miss our recipes at the end for delicious low-carb crackers and muffins made with flaxseeds! So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it on the Virtual Porch gabbing away about the health headlines of the day from the low-carb perspective.

Recipe:

Flaxseed Crackers from Tina Langston

A great high fiber, crunchy, nutritious, and tasty snack. Good with dips, spreads, or plain.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Ingredients:
• 1 cup flax seed meal
• 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
• 1 and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup water
Preparation:
Heat oven to 400 F.

1) Mix all ingredients together.

2) Spoon onto sheet pan which is covered with a silicone mat or greased parchment paper.

3) Cover the mixture with a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Even out the mixture to about 1/8 inch. I find a straight edge, like a ruler, works well, though you can use a rolling pin or wine bottle too. The important thing is not to let it be too thin around the edges or that part will overcook before the center firms up. So after you spread it out, remove the paper and go around the edges with your finger and push the thin part inwards to even it up.

4) Bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-18 minutes. If it starts to get more than a little brown around the edges, remove from oven. Let cool completely – it will continue to crisp up.

5) Break into pieces.

The whole recipe is 6 grams of effective carbohydrate plus 35 grams of fiber.

Flaxseed Muffins from Tina Langston

3 eggs
1/4 cup vanilla davinci’s
1/4 cup cooking oil plus 2 T.
2T. water
2T. Cinnamon (amount is correct)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup golden flaxmeal

Beat eggs and other wet ingredients well. Add dry, mix to combine. Let the batter sit for about 5 mins. Spoon into 12 greased muffin tins, bake @ 350- for 12ish minutes… I overbake mine slightly… they are almost crunch when they first come out but then soften up a little bit – I eat these over a course of like 4-5 days so I dont like them to turn to total mush. I make these as mini muffins and freeze them as I would not want anyone eating the whole lot over a few days. Drink plenty of water when eating items made with flaxmeal.

Sugar-free, super simple, key lime mousse by Ash Sierra

1 small soft ripe avocado (about 9 Tablespoons)
1/2 juice of a lime (or -- if you can -- use a key lime)
3 tablespoons coconut milk from native forest (in can, they don't use BPA)
pinch of salt
1 dropper vanilla stevia extract (I use the Now brand glyercine based)
5 Tablespoons coconut oil

Toss everything except coconut oil in a blender (I use a magic bullet type thing for this) and blend!
Heat coconut oil to liquid, add, and blend!

Finito! Be careful, you may eat the whole thing! If you put it in the fridge it will get much more solid....
Be creative, add 2 tablespoons of cashew or mac nut butter for extra richness, make a creamcheese topping..
I love to add some ground flax (not presoaked to avoid toxins!) it gives the mouse a built in crust taste
enjoy!

Dutch oven fail safe beef roast recipe by Whitney Ross

Ingredients:

Beef roast

Broth (I use my home made beef broth, but I have used mushroom or vegetable)

2 Bay leaves

3 -5 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

Seasoning (I like Penzy's beef roast seasoning, 8th Wonder, Herbamare or just garlic powder, salt and pepper)

Rendered lard, coconut oil, avacado oil, bacon fat

Instructions

Pre heat oven to 350

Heat oil in the dutch oven on medium high. (I have this dutch oven Costco Dutch oven but I wish I had this one Dream one )I use about 1/3 to 1/4 inch of oil.

Season the beef which has been brought to room temperature by taking it out of the fridge for 15 minutes to an hour. (not totally important)

brown the meat 4 minutes per side

Turn the heat off, add the onion, bay leaves, garlic and broth. The broth should just cover the meat, there can be some meat sticking out of the top of the broth, but not a lot.

Cover the pot and put it in the oven for 3 hours.

Primal meatballs by Whitney Ross

Ingredients for 25-30 meatballs

3 lbs of grass fed ground beef
3 eggs (farm fresh egg yolks for AIP)
3 C pulverized, cooked cauliflower (7 minutes in the microwave to cook it, no water stir halfway through)
1/2C parsley
3-6 cloves garlic chopped or pressed
1TBS salt
pepper to taste
1C raisins (omit for strict AIP, include if you are eating some sugar or some fruit)
1C grated parmesan (omit for AIP or find grass-fed, top quality cheese)
1/2 inch of oil in the pan to fry, bacon fat or olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together except the oil and then make 1 meat ball and fry it in hot oil with the temperature on medium - medium low in the pan. Brown it on all sides, about 2 minutes each side. Try that meatball and see if you need to add anything to the mixture like more salt. We cook these in a really large stainless saute pan and cook them in batches of 6. Don't crowd the pan or they will not brown properly. Don't mix the meat and ingredients too much or it won't stay together in a ball.

LC Cocoa by Alyssa Palomares

INGREDIENTS
-6 - 8 oz. boiling water
-1 tbsp cocoa powder
-2 tbsp sweetener of your choice (I use Stevia in the Raw)
-2 tbsp softened extra virgin coconut oil OR 2 - 3 tbsp cream
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-Dash of salt

OPTIONAL:
-Whipped cream, for garnish
-1/4 tsp each cinnamon and cayenne pepper (WARNING: texture is a bit gritty if you add these; not sure how to get around it)

INSTRUCTIONS:
At the bottom of your mug, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the coconut oil or cream and stir into a paste. Add enough boiling water to cover the paste, and stir before adding remaining water. If desired, top with whipped cream.
It is VERY important that you do not pour all the water into the mug at once, otherwise it won't mix neatly.

Brownie Recipe adapted from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrfnNdylTlA

Single-serving LC Brownie by Alyssa Palomares

I should note that this recipe was intended for a toaster oven, but it can be adapted for a regular oven. The original recipe was supposed to be microwaved, but that might dry out the brownie. The texture is more like a cake instead of an authentic brownie, but I'm not sure how to fix that. Some people might consider it dull by itself, so feel free to give it a frosting, mix in some chocolate chips, put low carb ice cream on top - whatever you like!

I wanted to give measurements for making multiple servings, but I'm not sure how that would affect the cooking time. I did increase the measurements to make two brownies once, but I don't remember how much I had to adjust the time or if I had to. Sorry if this is inconvenient! I know how inefficient it might be to heat up a regular oven for just one brownie.

INGREDIENTS

-3 tbsp butter OR coconut oil, softened - or you can use a mixture of both!
-1 egg
-3 tbsp coffee (black or with cream - instant is fine)
-1 tbsp cocoa
-2 tbsp coconut flour
-2 tbsp sweetener of choice (feel free to adjust to your liking)
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-Dash of salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, mix butter/coconut oil with the sweetener thoroughly. Add egg, and beat. Alternate between adding the coconut flour and coffee (in that order), 1 tbsp at a time. Add cocoa powder and vanilla extract, and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into a ramekin and put in the oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Alternatively, you can scoop the batter onto a cookie pan lined with aluminum foil to make pancakes. It might also work if you put the batter in a skillet, but I haven't tried that.
