Salt Roasted Lamb

But exactly emhow much/em salt? Too little, and the meat is bland. Too much, and you’ve ruined a huge chunk of meat. But more often than not, home cooks are left on their own to figure out how much salt to sprinkle on top./p
pSalt roasting is a technique that takes off all the pressure of correctly seasoning meat before you cook it. It also helps keep meat tender and juicy, which is especially helpful when cooking meat that can dry out easily, like lamb. As long as you’re willing to go through a lot of salt to make it happen, you’re guaranteed a highly flavorful, juicy leg of a title=”Smart Fuel: Lamb” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/lamb/”lamb/a./p

Flat Belly Forever

 
I’d like to introduce you to Flat Belly Forever.
It’s a new book, research conducted by me, that attempts to answer to the question:
 Why can two people in a controlled research study eat very close to the same amount of food, do very close to the same amount of exercise yet lose radically different amounts of weight?

For a long time my answer to this question was simply ‘They’re either lying about how much they eat, or how much they exercise”.
However, there was another thing that was nagging at me – people’s insistence that eating fruit and vegetables and ‘healthy food’ would result in better weight loss that eating the exact same amount of calories from ‘unhealthy food’.
What bothered me about this idea was how engrained the concept was in people from all walks of life, from different countries and of different ages… It seems that across the world we had an [...]

pOne of the most fulfilling aspects of Primal living is the built-in community you become a part of as soon as you embrace a paleo lifestyle. From the online friendships inspired by the Mark’s Daily Apple Forum, to the face-to-face connections made at PrimalCon events, nothing excites me more than the webs of positive interpersonal influence that help us master the art of living Primally./p

Chicken Vindaloo

It’s a dish known for being very spicy, but it doesn’t have to be if you make it at home. You can even skip the hot peppers entirely and still have an extremely flavorful dish from the ample amount of onions, ginger, garlic and spices./p
pThe complex flavors in this dish belie the simple preparation and short cooking time. Just blend the spices, marinate, sauté and then simmer for 25 minutes. You’re likely to already have many of the spices in your pantry – cumin, coriander, a title=”Health Benefits of Turmeric” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/health-benefits-turmeric/”turmeric/a, cinnamon – and some versions of chicken vindaloo also add cloves, cardamom, mustard seeds or paprika./p
