Chocolate Cheesecake Deliciousness

I have been having a hankering for a nice dessert and cheese cake seemed to fit the bill nicely. Much to my chagrin I have never made a cheesecake, at least not one that didn’t come from a box. I am not much of a dessert person to begin with so it’s pretty typical not to make desserts, though I used to make a mean cookie! I try not to have many sweets low carb or not, but every now and then it is a nice treat. We had a potluck dinner last week so I decided to try my hand at a chocolate cheesecake because like bacon, chocolate also makes everything better!

A Little Light Reading

In an effort to continually learn and further my knowledge on all things health and nutrition related I have compiled a nice stack of some light reading material! This does not include the books I have already read, which include Dr. Fung’s Obesity Code, The Complete Guide to Fasting, Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes book and several others, it also does not include the spiritual books I am currently reading. Besides this stack I have about 9 more on my Amazon shopping list that my library did not have. I am very picky on what authors I read and who I take any health information from. One thing that will get them thrown out of the stack pretty much right away is any conflict of interests, depending on what it is, as well as really crazy out there advice. All of these made the cut!

Bacon Fried Radishes

While perusing the recipe section at Diet Doctor I saw a recipe with radishes. Now I have never used radishes before but I have used bacon and bacon makes everything better. I have had radishes in salads before but never prepared buy me. I was feeling adventurous, so while at the store I picked up some radishes. Not being familiar with them I didn’t know there were different types, they had some whitish ones and some lovely pink ones and then ugly black ones all in the same thing and only one price listed.

Ketogenic Babies

While doing some research, because I am a research junkie, I came across a very interesting article on babies and ketosis. This information really rocked my brain because it made so much sense.

Some people, both medical professionals and lay people, seem to think ketogenesis is abnormal or unhealthy and I will admit I was one of those people until I started looking at the real science and not the hype. It is exactly the opposite of unhealthy or abnormal. In the article I read from it states, “ketogenic metabolism is normal and desirable, human newborns are in ketosis. ” Continue reading “Ketogenic Babies”
