Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are stoked to have two more fabulous guest friends from the low-carb blogging world joining them today in Singapore-based low-carb, high-fat fan Ilona Kasza from the "Big Fat Blog" and 22-year old real food-based low-carber and college student David Pickholtz from the "My Low Carb College Kitchen" blog. Listen in at the beginning as this foursome take on a brand new "Secret Headline" feature that Jimmy and Cassie decided to start doing each week to get a spontaneous reaction from their guest friends. This is the graphic that got the conversation going--Dr. Oz's 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals:


Dr. Oz's 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals

You're not going to want to miss the response to this! Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, Ilona and David opine on the health headlines, including how researchers try to extrapolate information about high-fat diets on humans from a study on mice, the absurdity of a new research study claiming offering donuts as an incentive for exercising is a good thing, why the interpretation of what constitutes a "quality" diet is important when the subject is pancreatic cancer, whether sugar should have a warning label attached to it or not, new research showing drinking coffee and cutting carbohydrates in your diet can reduce endometrial cancer, the rising online doctor visit trend for cost savings, and so much more! We always have a great time on this show, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it!

Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett and professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 90 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It just feels right having this show back on the air again over the past few weeks dissecting all the latest health headlines out there in the mainstream world to see what kind of messages they are communicating with an unsuspecting public. Yes, we are the great exception to the rule when it comes to reading through the typical editorializing that goes on even in the midst of reporting on scientific studies on diet and health. Make no mistake about it, conventional wisdom on these subjects still rules the day--but we're getting closer and closer to making the messages we communicate on this podcast a part of the debate of ideas...and that's exciting stuff! We need podcasts like "Low-Carb Conversations" to solidify in the minds of listeners what to think about these critical issues that are important to attaining a healthy lifestyle so that they can keep sharing this alternative information to the people within their circle of friends and family who need to hear it the most.

No matter how much you know and believe in the concepts of healthy low-carb, Paleo living, it's nice to have a place of solace, encouragement and reinforcement to help you in this journey. If you'd like to see that continue, then won't you consider making a donation to help us continue to provide a weekly critical look at the health headlines that dominate our modern-day culture. We've been incredibly grateful for the support that so many of you have given us in the past couple of months, but we have tens of thousands more listeners who could help us keep going strong in the months and years to come if most of you shared a very modest donation as little as $5 to carry on. If you like the show and want to keep hearing more of it, isn't it worth a small seed of investment now to reap big dividends in changed lives down the road? CLICK HERE if you want to help us make that dream a reality. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are thrilled to welcome in a dynamic couple of beautiful peeps to join them in the studio today (it's "Jimmy and the babes"!), including Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett from the "Ditch The Wheat" blog (author of the Paleo-friendly e-cookbook Indulge: 70 Grain-Free Desserts) as well as professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres from the "Recipe Rx" blog (author of the creatively-titled Paleogasm: 150 Grain, Dairy and Sugar-free Recipes That Will Leave You Totally Satisfied and Begging for More). Listen in as they take on some fascinating health topics, including the sudden rise in Type 2 diabetes that has hit 114 million people in the (rice-loving!) country of China, a confused health advocacy specialist on the subject of carbohydrates, a critical blog post of Paleo, low-carb and primal living with specific digs at Mark Sisson and several others from the ancestral community, a recent paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that calls for an end to the diet debates (wishful thinking!), a mainstream column knocking the health halo off of smoothies and fruit juice (FINALLY!), the absurdity of the cholesterol-lowering food products that are marketed to consumers these days, and so much more! This is a fun episode today that we KNOW you're gonna love, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

CAMILLE'S BLAT OMELET WITH GARLIC AIOLI RECIPE

Serves 2

BLAT, if you’re not familiar, stands for BACON-LETTUCE-AVOCADO-TOMATO, and is typically an upgrade to the famous BLT sandwich. Here’s my take using eggs, glorious eggs! This is the best low-carb breakfast on the block.

6 eggs
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Butter, for cooking eggs
6 slices applewood smoked bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 avocados, diced small
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Spike or other seasoned salt
1 cup arugula
2 tablespoons Balsamic Reduction (Trader Joe’s and some other markets carry a Balsamic Glaze if you want to skip this step)

Heat a 9-10 inch skillet on medium-high heat. Add about a teaspoon of butter. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add half of the eggs to the hot pan and sprinkle with green onion, salt, and pepper. Turn to low and cover, allowing the steam to cook the top of the egg. You can get crazy and try to flip it, but you risk breaking it. Toss avocado, tomatoes, and arugula with lemon and seasoned salt. When top cooked, remove from pan and add bacon, and salad. Fold over, slice in half, drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve with a dollop of aioli.

Primal low-carb diet blogger Brian Beaven joins our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 88 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

We're THRILLED to have Jimmy and Cassie back on the air again on Fridays taking on the latest health headlines of the day with various peeps from the low-carb, primal, Paleo, real food community. As you know, we are a listener-supported podcast and really do rely on the donations of listeners just like YOU to continue bringing you this weekly excursion into offering up opinions on what's making news in the world of nutrition and health. WE NEED YOU and appreciate anything you can do to financially support the work we are doing. If everyone who listened to this podcast just gave $1 a year, we'd easily be able to cover all of the expenses associated with production, hardware, software and everything else involved with making this show work. If you are a fan of "Low-Carb Conversations" and would like to see it continue to air, then won't you consider making a donation? We are perhaps providing one of the few places where you hear a voice of reason in the insanity that is the subject of health in 2013! CLICK HERE to be a beacon of light to those who are still stuck in the darkness of conventional wisdom regarding diet and living healthy. THANK YOU in advance for your generous support.

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are happy to have two podcasting professionals who just so happen to support the Paleo lifestyle as well joining them in this episode. They are Brian Beaven from the "Primal Bodhi" blog

and Roland Denzel from the "Eat Well Move Well" podcast. Tune in to hear this foursome share their thoughts on the recent dust-up regarding the use of Kerrygold butter, whether our pursuit for 100% perfection in Paleo products is wise or not, the practicality lessons learned from the release of the world's first hamburger made in a lab, whether junk food is the answer to obesity, why processed foods will almost always never be healthy, the introduction of egg white options on the menu at the fast food chain Sonic, why some school districts have chosen to opt out of the government-mandated "healthy" school lunch program and more! We've a great show for you today, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!
