Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes
yield 2 servings

4 eggs
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tb. maple syrup (I tried also with non-Paleo sugar free syrup and it worked also)
2 Tb. melted butter or coconut oil (I tried with applesauce successfully also)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch salt
1-2 Tb. of coconut flour (or for non-Paleo version: 3-4 Tb. whole wheat flour)
butter for the pan

1.  Heat your large skillet to medium heat.
2.  In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, butter and vanilla.
3.  Once that is mixed really well, scatter the dry stuff on top:  baking soda, cinnamon, salt and optional (but highly recommended) flour.
4.  Whisk that all up until just combined.
5.  Grease your skillet with a little butter.  Ladle the pancake batter and cook on one side for about 2 minutes.  It will be a golden orange-brown once cooked.
6.  Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes on the other side.  Serve with sliced bananas, syrup or eat plain.

FYI, I always enjoyed Robb's take on this, and it's a hot Saturday in the summer, so enjoy!

The NorCal Margarita

23 shots of 100% agave tequila.
Juice and pulp from one lime.
Shake it all up with some ice.
Add soda water to taste.

This drink is wonderful, for a few reasons:

Tequila is fermented agave juice, which makes it gluten- or and starch-free.
Lime juice blunts the insulin response of the alcohol, maintaining your precious and hard-earned insulin sensitivity.
The lime juice also provides a net alkaline load when it gets to the blood stream, which is a good thing. Most other foods provide a net acid load, and its nice to balance that out.
The carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda water help get the ethanol into your blood more quickly. This has the practical effect of allowing you to drink a bit less for the same effect.

Research / Cooked food is what led to human dominance of the Earth
« on: November 10, 2012, 06:50:50 AM »

Despite a general trend for larger mammals to have larger brains, humans are the primates with the largest brain and number of neurons, but not the largest body mass. Why are great apes, the largest primates, not also those endowed with the largest brains? Recently, we showed that the energetic cost of the brain is a linear function of its numbers of neurons. Here we show that metabolic limitations that result from the number of hours available for feeding and the low caloric yield of raw foods impose a tradeoff between body size and number of brain neurons, which explains the small brain size of great apes compared with their large body size. This limitation was probably overcome in Homo erectus with the shift to a cooked diet. Absent the requirement to spend most available hours of the day feeding, the combination of newly freed time and a large number of brain neurons affordable on a cooked diet may thus have been a major positive driving force to the rapid increased in brain size in human evolution.
