At the moment, one of my favorite bloggers is Melissa McEwen at Hunt/Gather/Love. She was recently featured in a New York Times article on Paleolithic Diets. She’s written a lot of great things in her quite new blog, but this one about Kale Chips … well, this is my new favorite way to eat dark leafy greens. And my previous favorite way included bacon grease. I’ve been hearing for some time that a bag of baby spinach done like this is also delicious, and I kept meaning to try it but never got around to it. Now I’ve gotten around to it, and wow!
Another that’s high on my reading priority list right now is Richard Nikoley of Free The Animal. He’s also a paleolithic eater, but he’s less dogmatic than many. Paleo tends, like fruitarian diets, raw foodism, veganism and the pure carnivore diet, towards dogmatism, something I find dull and kind of annoying. Richard has a real attitude, and I do enjoy watching him rip into conventional wisdom/idiocy. Here is one of his great entries about this very thing. His comment feed has grown so large and popular that I think it merits a forum.
And one for the road: Kurt Harris, MD. His Smoking Candy Cigarettes piece is destined to become a classic. While it covered something that’s always driven me nuts about paleo food blogs as well as low-carb recipes, it seems to have struck a chord with others as well. This is the idea that whatever you’re making has to be prefaced with “low-carb” or “paleo” because it’s really an *imitation* of some other food that doesn’t contain any foods on the blogger’s banned list.
OK, back to my delicious kale chips.
