Courtney's Snackmonster (Grain-Free) Granola

Dry ingredients:
1c almond meal (coarse ground such as from Trader Joes)
½ c flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp sea salt- more to taste
1 c shredded unsweetened coconut
¼ c sunflower seeds (or any other seeds/nut of a similar size such as pumpkin seeds, cashew pieces, slivered almonds)
~2 c mix unroasted, unsalted nuts (combo of almonds, pecans, walnuts is my favorite)
1 big handful of dried wild blueberries (or other dried fruit diced up)

Wet ingredients:
1 Tbsp vanilla
½ c coconut oil in solid form
¼ c + 1 Tbsp honey

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil (this makes for easier clean up).

2. Mix all dry ingredients (EXCEPT dried fruit) in a large bowl.

3. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Mix in the honey and vanilla and then stir into the dry until everything is moistened.

4. Use a spatula to spread granola evenly on the baking sheet.

5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently stir and flip in sections.

6. Increase temperature to 325 degrees.

7. While oven temp increases sprinkle your dried fruit over the just flipped granola and press down into the granola with a spatula.

8. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, you don’t want it to darken too much and taste burnt.

9. Once removed from the oven let it cool, this is what will let it get crunchy.

10. Enjoy over full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, with almond milk, or just by itself!

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.

In today's episode, our hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are pleased to welcome two international guest friends in a low-carb nutrition and fitness expert from Ireland named Ben McClure and a 75-year old New Zealand woman named Anne Franklin from the "Nutritional Ketosis And Fasting" blog. Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, Ben, and Anne give their thoughts about the TIME magazine cover story about how we got it wrong on saturated fat, the USDA allowing chickens to be sent to China for processing before returning to the United States for food, the "truth" about low-carb diets being necessary or not, the pros and cons of the health benefits vs. negative health ramifications of Dave Asprey's Bulletproof Coffee, whether drinking lots of water can reverse aging, an insightful commentary on nutritional science and what to make of the studies on diet and health, and so much more. It's time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

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.

Can you believe the City of New York thinks this 9-year old is "fat?"

In today's episode, our hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are pleased to welcome back two former guest friends in the awesome George Bryant from "Civilized Caveman Cooking" and Juli Bauer from "PaleOMG" who just released this week a brand new Victory Belt Publishing Paleo cookbook they coauthored entitled The Paleo Kitchen: Finding Primal Joy in Modern Cooking. Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, George and Juli debate whether that little girl you see pictured above would be considered "fat" to them like she is viewed by the City of new York, whether being gluten-free and having a gluten intolerance even exists, the doubling down of efforts by the American Heart Association to continue to vilify saturated fat, food companies that don't want to tell you the truth about where their meat comes from (including Atkins Nutritionals!), certain "bad carbs" that are supposedly good for you, the importance of sleep in your overall health, some of the worst foods you could possibly eat, and so much more. Then with two recipe-making geniuses with us, you know there will be plenty to share in the recipe time at the end. It's time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!
