20 Things You Didn't Know About Paleo
5 Sources of "SuperFats"

May 24, 2015
 Monticello, Missouri
Dear John,
May we all take a moment and reflect on the 1,354,664+ who have given their lives for freedom from the Revolutionary War to battles on two continents today. 

The expression on the young man to the right expresses the pain that freedom requires in a manner words cannot express. 

All of us in the food and fiber world tip our hats to those who have gone to all points of the world to preserve the freedom that has come with a very heavy price. 

Let us not forget the military goes to great lengths to bring their fallen home.  The link here dates back to 1942 on the a small Makin Atoll in the Gilbert Islands in the Pacific, and the actions of local islanders honoring 19 dead Carlson's 2nd Marine Raiders.  This will bring a tear to your eyes at the humility and gratitude shown to our fallen Marines by those who could not even speak our language.  In short, they were honored by the bravery and courage of the legendary Carlson Raiders trying to save their island from the Japanese Army.  In this battle,  Sgt. Clyde Thomason posthumously earned the first enlisted Marine Medal of Honor.

The 2015 Grassfed Exchange Conference will be held in Mt. Pleasant, MI September 16 through September 18.  The 16th will be dedicated to farm tours and the 17th and 18th will unveil an impressive group of speakers. Topics will explore the gamut from stacking enterprises, maximizing solar collection, grass & soil health, grazing strategies and the Dorito effect of food and flavor. The theme is "Generations of Opportunity. Sun and water, Sons and Daughters."  Register here for the 6th annual Grassfed Exchange.

The article and recipe sections below are packed with great information in this edition.  You will learn how to keep your brain's mental clarity, pick up 20 nuggets of wisdom on the paleo diet, understand different fats and how they effect our bodies, and lastly how grass-fed cheese burgers assist in weight loss.

Save Your Brain


 By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


Alzheimer's is one of the most devastating and dreaded diseases I'm confronted with at my South Florida anti-aging clinic.

And because I'm based in a part of the country that's a major retirement Mecca, I see more seniors than the average American physician - and proportionally more Alzheimer's sufferers.

Many patients fear Alzheimer's more than cancer or any other debilitating disease.

They're terrified of this cruel, progressive and degenerative illness that attacks the brain, steals memory, confuses thinking, and can turn even the most intelligent and achieving adults into mental infants.

Mainstream doctors will tell you there's no way to reverse this dreaded scourge. And they'll tell you that only expensive Big Pharma drugs have any chance of slowing its assault on your mind.

But the experience of the patients I've treated at my clinic tells me that mainstream medicine has got it wrong.  




Editors Note:  Dr. Al Sears, M.D. is a board-certified clinical nutrition specialist. His practice, Dr. Sears' Health & Wellness Center in Royal Palm Beach, Fla., specializes in alternative medicine. He is the author of seven books in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging, and nutritional supplementation, including The Doctor's Heart Cure. To get his free special report on the proven anti-aging strategies for building a vibrant, disease-free life, go here now. You'll learn how to stop Father Time without giving up the foods you love.

5 Sources of these "SuperFats" Might Surprise You

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



Many factors contribute to the twin epidemics of obesity and chronic disease in America (and, increasingly, throughout the world). But two dietary factors play the greatest roles, by far. These are the over consumption of:

1.    Sugar (and other simple carbohydrates) and
2.    Unhealthy fats

In previous articles, I've discussed the negative effects of a high-carbohydrate diet and chronically-high insulin levels. Today, let's focus on fats... in particular, one of the healthiest fats you can consume and the positive effects it can have on your body. I will also share with you the most potent (and surprising) sources of this healthy superfat.

20 Things You Didn't Know About the Paleo Diet 

Author: Chris Kresser


Paleo has received a lot of attention in the media over the past couple of years-some of it positive, and some of it negative-and there are a lot of misconceptions about what a Paleo approach to nutrition and lifestyle means for most people. With this in mind, here are 20 things I think everyone should know about Paleo.

1. Following a Paleo diet/lifestyle today is not about re-enacting the exact diet/lifestyle of our ancestors.  Instead, it's about embracing the principles of their diet and lifestyle to a modern context: eating nutrient dense, toxin-free, whole foods, moving our bodies regularly, sleeping at least 8 hours a night, managing our stress, and playing and having fun. But instead of saying all of this each time, it's a lot easier to just say "Paleo"!

2. Most hunter gatherers did not eat a "low-carb" diet.  The average carbohydrate intake of hunter gatherers ranged from 30-40% of total calories.  This is not a low-carb diet!  It's a moderate carb diet, and it's important to realize that virtually all of the research that has shown benefits for the Paleo diet involved a Paleo diet with this carbohydrate range.

Cyclical Training and Grass Fed Cheese Burgers for Rapid Fat Loss     


By: Scott Mendelson



Can I use dairy products such as cheese within the Dietary Fat Loading Strategy to accelerate fat loss?  What other methods can I use to make my body a more efficient fat burning machine?  I need to lose 8-12 pounds of body fat to reach an all-time best condition at age 44.  Show me a training routine that is appropriate for a busy business/dad that will burn fat and add muscle- knock my socks off!  Ray


Ray we have received dozens of emails asking questions and providing positive feedback regarding the dietary fat loading protocols since publishing the article back in April.   The short term increase of dietary fat intake from organic sources has a huge impact on increasing fat burning enzymes that may otherwise be low for a number of reasons.

The Best Burger Patties...

beef patties I have ordered many items from US wellness meats, and while I haven't found anything I don't like yet, these 75% lean patties are easily my favorite tasting meal!

I had a friend visit years back, and he brought these with him. I have been ordering them ever since. So much better than the garbage meat sold in local stores.

I cannot suggest these highly enough. Order some NOW! :)

Twice-Cooked Pork



The Meat Portion 
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 2 tsp rice cooking wine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 lbs pork loin or boneless chops, trimmed of fat and thinly sliced (diagonally for more surface area)

Stir-Fry Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 8 dried Sichuan chili peppers (more or less to taste)
  • 1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 head napa cabbage, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups chopped)

Stir-Fry Sauce

  •  1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or 3 tbsp coconut aminos)
  • 1 tbsp honey or coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 2 tsp salt, more to taste
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, divided
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced, to garnish


  1. Combine the egg whites, starch, wine, and salt; stir until well-mixed. Toss with the pork pieces until well-coated, then cover and refrigerate for 40 minutes, tossing again about 20 minutes into the marinating.
  2. While the pork marinates, prepare the stir-fry. Cut the vegetables and set aside. Combine the stir-fry ingredients and set aside.
  3. In a wok or saucepan, bring about 2 quarts of water to boil over high heat. Just as it starts to bubble, add 1 tbsp of the coconut oil, then add the pork pieces. Using tongs or chopsticks, move the pork around so they don't stick together. Blanch until opaque, about 35-40 seconds, then fish out with a slotted spoon and drain in a colander, then set aside.
  4. Heat the remaining 2 tbsp of oil in a wok over med/high heat until shimmering, about 2 minutes. Add the onion and peppers and stir-fry until slightly softened, about 30 seconds, then add the pork. Stir-fry until the pork starts to brown at the edges, about 1 minute, then add the bell pepper; stir-fry until starting to soften, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add the cabbage and the stir-fry sauce (stir the sauce together again before adding it). Toss and stir-fry until the cabbage wilts a bit and the sauce thickens, about 30 seconds. Taste and add salt if needed, then garnish with sliced green onions and serve.
