Gluten Free Tuna Melt

Don’t know how long since I’ve had one. Udi’s gluten free white bread, buttered on the outside with Kerrygold unsalted.   Tuna salad is just a standard toss together of tuna, mayo, splat of yellow mustard, chopped onions, pickles and celery—seasoned with a git of garlic powder, salt & pepper. The cheese is the New…

“Vitamin D metabolism and innate immunity”

In email from Pedro Carrrera Bastos. Full text here. Abstract Effects of vitamin D on the immune system have been recognized for over 30 years and stemmed in part from analysis of the dysregulated vitamin D metabolism associated with granulomatous diseases. How- ever, it is only in more recent years that a role for interaction…

Having an MD is No Guarantee You Won’t be a Fucking Moron

Earlier today, I did a “Land of Democracy Update” over the very recent Fed raids in Colorado in advance of what’s effectively blanket legalization of marijuana as decided by Colorado voters recently. (Thanks, Choom Master.) I actually thought Dr. John Mitchell was tongue-in-cheeking me on Twitter.   That’s why I replied with this. Just Doing My Job…

I’m going to clean out my “Post Material” folder beginning later today, perhaps tomorrow. Continuing throughout the weekend. It goes as far back as an email from Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon way back, on 10/12/11, and forward. Tidbits I saved. Could end up being a few dozen posts over the next few days. That’s all folks,…

How I Learned to Play A Clitoris

The clitoris is rather amazing. Don’t you think? It’s a wonder, in and of itself. It lures young men, provided they have the reality of awareness that women really love sex. But to add, only if they’re reflective and astute enough to account for the mind & character it’s attached to. This is key, and…

How About Have Your Church and Eat God Too?

I was explaining to a friend just now in email that I recently attended a Catholic wedding at a Catholic church and kinda loved it. Even the very brief homily was kinda useful, and the guy was pretty funny. Good time for me, in a Catholic church. …In spite of my practiced animus for religion,…

Slow Cooked Pork Roast and a Big Ass Salad

This was the deal for Sunday afternoon football with a couple of guests. First, I wanted to showcase my gluten free chipped creamed beef on toast, but in a more elegant and refined way, since it’s ghetto food. So I did it as an entrée round (BTW, please stop calling the main course the entrée—it’s just…

I just realized that there must have been a reason Beatrice stayed home from teaching school today. Something about killing people for Our Team, I think. But I sense it used to be something a bit different where, we kinda won, and with some measure of honor too…though we couldn’t let it end there; or,…

Mark Sisson Jumps On Board With Resistant Starch

In today’s Mark’s Daily Apple we find, Dear Mark: Resistant Starch, Zinc Deficiency, and Something New.

This is what it’s all about, folks. Changing your mind when exposed to new information.

Resistant starch is a starch that resists digestion by regular digestive enzymes, passing through to the colon for fermentation by gut flora. In a post way back in the day, I addressed resistant starch and lumped it in with other prebiotic fibers like inulin, with the reasoning being that while it was certainly helpful and important, it was not some essential, magical nutrient. It seems I underestimated it. Resistant starch offers some interesting properties unique among other prebiotics. [emphasis added]

Well there you go, and that’s why Mark enjoys the tremendous following he does. Honesty goes a long way with people. The great thing about being wrong or incomplete about something is that once you correct that, you’re closer to being right, which means better for yourself and better for those you’re influencing.

Mark adds, with a number of links to this blog:
