I'm off to the farmer's market this morning: organic vegies, raw milk, grass fed beef, pastured eggs, non-organic but unsprayed fruit (ya gotta take what ya can get!).

Can I give a few book titles and blog links that people may be interested in?

180degreehealth.blogspot - read the link 'all newcomers read this' in the top right hand corner so you can find out a bit about Matt Stone and where he's coming from.

Underground Wellness - This guy does podcasts as well with guest interviews, very interesting.

Living La Vida Low Carb - I go on and off this one, the blog I don't usually check but he does have some really interesting interviews on his podcast show.

The coconut oil miracle, by Bruce Fife.
Eat fat, lose fat, by Sallon Fallon and Dr Mary Enig

On a tangent....
One of the pp's said something about dh's cholesterol going up when he eats the good stuff. My dh's has done the same thing. I have read varying things on cholesterol and the particle size of the 'bad' cholesterol seems to be an issue...if your 'bad' cholesterol is made up of big fluffy particles, they don't pose a risk, or something along those lines. And the evidence on high cholesterol causing heart disease does not seem to be rock solid. I'm not a chemist, or a researcher, so don't quote me on anything.

Hmmm, sooooo much information around!
thanks for the links!
