I was just browsing through TED videos on a lazy Saturday morning, and came across this little gem that I wanted to share with you. It’s great to see popular forums like TED getting wise to the issue of sugar and starch in the diet. Enjoy and share!

Crispy Low-Carb High-Fat Treats From the Microwave

Sometimes you want something crispy. And crispy doesn’t necessarily mean the crunch of fresh lettuce. Sometimes crispy means something fried. One thing that low-carb high-fat diets don’t provide a lot of options for is alternatives to crackers and fried chips. Even the things that you bake tend to be either a little bit on the…

Inner Motivation and Low-Carb High Fat Diets

Recently we invited my dad over for dinner, to enjoy a roast and some pleasant conversation with company. We had a guest staying with us from out of town, and his parents have been friends with my parents since long before either one of us is born. I was looking forward to a nice relaxing…

Invincible Coconut Chai Tea for Low-Carb High-Fat Diets

I love to follow the trends in popular nutrition. Lately I’ve been reading a lot about the Bulletproof Executive Diet, and in particular the new drink that’s becoming popular among my office mates, coffee with melted butter in it. Among the things that the people who follow the Bulletproof Executive say about their drink is that it…

Carbohydrates Solve Everything (NOT!)

This morning I was reading a book about writing. It’s a subject that I enjoy reading about–when I’m not actually writing. I like to read nonfiction the way that a lot of people read fiction, because it gives me a chance to imagine myself as the subject of a different reality. In this case, the…

Butter, Belief Systems, and Low-Carb High-Fat Diets

I was so excited to wake up this morning and discover that TIME Magazine had put a curl of butter on its cover. Finally, one of the most mainstream magazines in the United States has publicly stated what we’ve all known for a while: butter and other saturated fats are not the enemy of good…

Vacations and Low-Carb High-Fat Diets

I’m going to tell you something that maybe nobody else who writes about diets will tell you: When you’re on vacation, go on vacation. Take the opportunity to remind yourself just why eating a low-carb diet is important to you and your lifestyle. Yes, carbohydrates are physically addicting. Yes, addiction is best cured through total…

Why I Didn’t Invent a Cookie Butter Recipe for Low-Carb High-Fat Diets

Just so you know, this article is not going to be a recipe for how to make low-carb high-fat cookie butter. In fact, the point of this post is to talk about cookie butter as a concept, and why I’m not attempting to reproduce it. (Even the photo above is actually peanut butter, not cookie…

Low-Carb High-Fat Coconut Snickerdoodles

I was feeling like something sweet this morning. It was probably more habit than actual appetite. Normally on my low-carb high-fat diet I don’t feel like anything sweet. The diet tends to suppress the appetite for sweets, so I don’t find myself craving a lot of things. But it was a hot, lazy morning, and…
