AUDIO

A shift in thinking is happening right before our very eyes when it comes to what we think about nutrition and health. We hope in some small way that is happening because of the work we do here on this podcast and in the low-carb, Paleo, real food health community. We still have a long way to go which is why we are committed to being here for you on Friday's discussing the health news that people are talking about. If you're a regular listener, then you know there's usually more to the story than what is being shared in the mainstream media. We offer up an alternative take to help you stay focused and encouraged. CLICK HERE to donate your gift of any amount to help us provide new episodes for months and years to come.

http://youtu.be/SozZHZAWS64

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie welcome in a pair of awesome guest friends in an Indianapolis, Indiana-based Paleo food truck owner and operator named Shelby Malaterre from "Caveman Truck" (who submitted a recipe used in Jimmy's new book Keto Clarity) and a Missouri-based registered dietitian in Lindsey Jay. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Shelby, and Lindsey give us their thoughts and opinions about some recent health headlines, including a disturbing look at why Walmart's ice cream sandwiches don't melt in the sun, how so many consumers are confusing the term "local" with "organic," how low-carb diets have supposedly gotten things all wrong, a bestselling diet book author does a 180-degree change of his position on consuming dietary fat, why people in Europe don't refrigerate their eggs and how American eggs would be illegal there, and new stem cell research the can "reverse" heart disease and the surprising diet of the man with atheroschlerosis in the story. Plus, we've got an awesome jicama taco recipe from Shelby and a cauliflower taco shell recipe from Lindsey at the end of the show. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Momentum is building for the Paleo, primal, real food, and low-carb, high-fat nutritional approaches with so many exciting headlines highlighting the positive benefits this way of eating can afford anyone who is willing to give it a try for themselves. While we still hear some disappointing health messages being promoted in the mainstream media urging people to cut their fat and calories, eat more "healthy whole grains," and exercise hours a day to "work off" their bad nutritional choices, we are encouraged that OUR message is getting out there and changing the hearts and minds of the people who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. If you are one of those people who finds benefit from the positive health message you are hearing on this podcast, then we'd so appreciate your financial support of any amount. CLICK HERE to stand with Jimmy and Cassie as they keep the message alive.

PUMPKIN AND SPINACH FRITTATA by Anne Franklin

Prepare a large baking dish by brushing with melted butter. I often line my dish with baking paper instead as it saves scrubbing later.

Preheat oven to 340 degrees Fahrenheit

Ingredients
400g roasted chunks of pumpkin
200g spinach
120g blue cheese or feta, (diced or crumbled)
12 eggs
50 ml heavy whipping cream
120g creamy blue cheese or feta
100g diced bacon
1 tomato
200g grated cheese
seasoning and herbs to taste

I usually cut my pumpkin into 1 -2 inch pieces. I toss the pieces in a little olive oil, seasoned herbs such as Tuscan seasoning, and bake in the oven until soft. Better still is to bake extra when roasting veggies for dinner the previous day.

Layer the pumpkin and spinach in your baking dish with pieces of the creamy cheese or feta. Beat the eggs together with the cream. Pour the eggs over the veggies. Scatter the pieces of bacon over. Slice tomato and place over the dish. Sprinkle grated cheese over.

Bake in a moderate oven until firm. and the cheesy top is golden. Takes 30 to 45 minutes depending on the depth of the dish. Great as a main meal with salad and slices well when cold to make an ideal picnic food.

MARY JO'S SIMPLE HIGH-FAT PUDDING RECIPE:
Take an avocado, coconut milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and a little stevia. I don't have any exact amounts, I just kind of played with it. But it is really rich and creamy and a great high-fat treat.

MaryLou's Faux Scalloped Au Gratin Potatoes
1 Celery root or Celeriac peeled, cleaned and sliced (I use a mandolin and slice the pieces thin and then cut them into smaller pieces)
4 tablespoons of butter (I use Kerrygold unsalted)
1 cup of heavy cream
Garlic powder
Salt
Pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan
1/4 cup Romano
1/4 cup Mozzarella

Put all ingredients, except cheese, in a sauce pan over low to medium heat cover and sauté for 25-30 minutes stirring occasionally until they are the softened. After 20 minutes add cheese and continue cooking over low heat

MaryLou's Collards and Kale

This recipe seems so simple and yet it is never the first thing people think of. It is a great way to get in broth when you are eating a real food nutritional approach. We have this at least 4-6 nights a week it is delicious. When we eat chicken we boil thighs in the broth for 15-20 minutes and then season skin on thigh and broil for 5 minutes or so to crisp (best fried chicken without coating with bad ingredients).

Collard Green
Kale
“Better than Bouillon” (I prefer the organic vegetable)
Water

Fill Dutch oven half way with water (the Dutch oven cooks collards faster)

Add bouillon paste to taste (I add a spoon full at a time, mix well and taste the broth and if it is to watered down I will add more paste or if it is to strong I will add more water).

Add Collards and Kale (I use a handful of each and that depends on the size of the pot and the amount of water you added) boil covered for approximately 15 minutes and you are done!
