Weekly Links

We spend a lot of time surfing the web and reading endless articles, searching through online resources and trolling facebook and twitter pages to continually build our knowledge. We share a lot of these articles via our facebook page and twitter feed but I thought I would put them together in a quick post each weekend once I’ve read through it all.

So here we go… grab a coffee and happy interwebbing…

This great infographic shows what we are inadvertently putting into our bodies, fillet of plastique anyone?… “Oceans of Garbage: Why people are eating their own trash

Found this great recipe for chocolate and coconut mud cake with yummy chocolate frosting (all paleo friendly and super healthy of course!!). Haven’t cooked it yet but it is definitely on the must test list. The Finger Fork Knife website looks like a treasure trove of great recipes.

More and more Australians are concerned about the food we buy and where it comes from. Could European style weekly fresh food markets be a viable alternative to the supermarket monopoly? Here’s an interesting article from The Age.

Here is an interesting graph that shows the trends in overweight, obesity and extreme obesity among adults aged 20-74 years in the US from 1960-2008. See what happens from 1977 when the US Government issued its first dietary recommendations: “Eat less fat and cholesterol, and more carbohydrates.” Hmmm!

This is a great article about ‘why a high fat diet is healthy and safe‘ from one of our favourite blogs, Mark’s Daily Apple.

Grow

Last weekend we participated in a brilliant course hosted by the Mulloon Institute at Mulloon Creek Natural Farms, learning how to design and create a food forest, also called forest garden. I still have to write a post about it but read this Wikipedia entry on forest gardens to learn more about this fantastic and highly productive system for growing a high diversity of food.
