It's time for more fun here in Episode 53 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends as your enthusiastic co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti enjoy another hour-long chat about this, that and everything in between in the world of low-carb and Paleo living.

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!

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

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.
