The Peanut Butter Conspiracy

Recently I received a question asking if organic peanut butter is better than the conventional.  Organic peanut butter is obviously a better option, but in this case you’re just choosing from the “lesser of evils”.

The vast majority of peanuts used on the market contain a dangerous compound known as aflatoxin which is one of the most carcinogenic substances known. You can sometimes find rare species of peanuts like Wild Jungle Peanuts, but your best bet is to go with almond butter, cashew butter, or one of my new favorites Pumpkin Seed Butter!

Is It Normal To Feel Good When You DON’T Eat?

Recently someone sent in a question for what would seem to be a very strange issue… They actually felt GREAT, but they were worried that they hadn’t eaten enough calories in the day (according to the RDA), and wondered if they were doing something dangerous.

Obviously the requirements would be different… But this would take an entirely different approach than the typical “cookie-cutter” framework of how much a person should be eating.
