Three Top Posts of 2011

This blog started with a post on the last day in June, 2011. I didn’t know exactly how and why and what I was going to write, but my motto was “just start”. Since then, I’ve written 126 posts, read a lot of interesting comments, and had a lot of fun.
If I wanted to define my readership by the most popular post, I’d have to say that my readers are beaver butt aficionados. My post, Mom!My Vanilla Ice Cream Has Beaver Anal Gland Secretions in It! is my all-time most popular post!

Carrot Patties - Yummy!
Third place is the very yummy tomato soup recipe (which reminds me that I haven’t made it in a while).

Wishing you all a healthy, fruitful, delicious, and fun 2012!

Ann Cooper, Renegade Lunch Lady, Speaks Out.

Here’s a great TED talk - from back in 2007 - given by Ann Cooper. She’s a renegade lunch lady, striving to make a change in school lunches.
This is a woman who has made it her mission to change children’s relationship to food.


Something Oily and Delicious for Chanukah

It is traditional to eat something oily for Chanukah, such as a potato pancake, a.k.a. latke. I made something similar - I think this is more like hash browns. Whatever it is, I love it.



All you do is grate potatoes. Squeeze out all the moisture – really give it a strong squeeze. Melt plenty of butter in a pan. Add a thin layer of grated potato (even thinner than in the picture above). Sprinkle with salt. Flip. Eat. Flip out.


This picture doesn't do it justice, but I can't take a better one because I ate it as I was writing this post.

Here's my featured post from last week:

What Causes Anorexia?

The instinct for survival and the desire to nourish oneself are so basic to the human condition, and yet, anorexics defy this instinct. It’s a puzzling disorder. The explanations generally given involve psychological disposition (anorexics tend to be overachievers, perfectionists, and so on) and social pressures (young women are bombarded with impossible images of perfect beauty). While this certainly plays a part, it never seemed to me like the complete story. If not, what does make a person want to starve himself - or more usually - herself, even to the point of death?

What causes anorexia?
Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride offers what sounds to me like a more complete hypothesis. She describes a series of interconnected events that occur something like this:



How Dr. Terry Wahls Cured her Multiple Sclerosis with Diet

Dr. Terry Wahls was in bad shape, suffering from a degenerative disease. When she singled in on which nutrients she was missing, she designed a food plan that turned around her health. What to know what worked for her? Hint: it wasn’t by eating boxed cereals, pop tarts, and eggbeaters. 


Note that she started out by taking vitamins and then switched to real food. Way to go, Dr. Terry Wahls!

Interview with Dr. Mary Vernon

I wish this woman were my doctor, but the living in a different continent issue makes it impractical. In this video, she is interviewed by the wonderful Andreas Eenfeldt, MD (who I also wish were my doctor).

Dr. Vernon explains how she started out treating her patients the way she was taught to treat them. And then she found a way that actually helped them get better. Have a look.
