Cassava Flour Crepes

Mark's Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple – These are the real deal—crepes that are almost identical to regular crepes, with one simple difference: they’re made from gluten-free cassava flour. Stuff these buttery crepes with either sweet or savory fillings, and they’re a delicious treat for breakfast or brunch.
The great thing about cassava flour is that it’s a whole food that can be used to make gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free baked goods. Although cassava flour isn’t a perfect replacement for all-purpose flour, it’s pretty darn close…. Read more

Happy Thanksgiving

Mark's Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple – I’ve always considered Thanksgiving the most Primal of the holidays. There’s little fanfare beyond the company and food. The act of preparing and sharing a feast is about as basic, but intimately sacred, as human ceremony gets. Add to this the focus on gratitude itself, the turning of our attention toward all that is good or has brought good to our lives. What comes to mind for me is communal offering and celebration around the table much like Grok’s kin around the fire.
Thanksgiving also, along with … Read more

Should You Rethink Your Meal Timing for Weight Loss?

Mark's Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple – I’ve written about what to eat . I’ve written about what not to eat. I’ve even discussed the benefits of occasionally eating things you “shouldn’t eat .” I’ve written about skipping breakfast, eating a big lunch, and skipping entire days of meals altogether . I’ve discussed sleeping low (carb) and punctuating a low-carb diet with occasional high-carb refeeds . But I haven’t written very much about when to eat.
I won’t tell you when to eat. There … Read more

5 Common Prescriptions That Should Require Nutritional Counseling

Mark's Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple – I’m not a drug denier. For the most part, at the base level, pharmaceuticals do what they’re supposed to do. Statins lower cholesterol. Beta-blockers lower blood pressure. Antibiotics kill bacteria. Whether those changes save lives or reverse disease is another question entirely. But we can all agree that pharmaceuticals deserve a place in modern medicine. And even if we don’t, they objectively have a place, and we must acknowledge reality.
We can also agree that many of the most common… Read more

Dear Mark: New Primal Blueprint Edition Comments, and Is Healthy Living a Placebo?

Mark's Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple – For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’ll first be addressing questions from the comment section of the new Primal Blueprint edition announcement, plus one from the placebo post .
The first question comes from barry and concerns the omission of raw food on the new PB food pyramid. Did I make a mistake by not including overt recommendations for eating raw veggies and meat? Are cooked foods responsible for our health problems? After that, I field a brief question about non-running alternatives for t… Read more
