Just in time for Thanksgiving, I’ve added a new twist to the no-wheat, no sugar apple pie — berries. It’s the same recipe, just add most of a package of Stahlbush Farms Health Berrie Blend. This blend includes black raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
And speaking of cooking, I heard this interesting spot with chef Thomas Keller touting his new book “Ad Hoc at Home” on NPR the other day, and was pleasantly surprised when I pulled it up on the Internet and found photos and actual recipes. Never mind the comments from the fat phobics. Some people don’t realize the notion of fat being harmful to your health is largely a concoction of the processed food industry (which wants to sell you a lot of cheap refined carbs) and has no solid basis in medical science.
In reality, it’s much more complicated than that.
Don’t take my word for it. Check out the Framingham Study, the largest and longest-running medical study ever conducted, which found no correlation between fat consumption and cardiovascular disease, or cholesterol consumption and blood levels of cholesterol.
