All I can say is what a great concept.  A one stop shop for downloadable lectures and discussions ranging a wide variety of topics like: Diet and Nutrition, Physical Culture, Rehabilitation, Personal Growth, and even Pain and Injury.  No more surfing the web for talks or interviews to download.  Keith Norris over at Ancestral Momentum brought this to my attention and I am glad he did.  There is no membership to buy, just sign up and pay for  the lectures you want to listen to.  The lectures are available immediately for download in MP3 format and never expire.  The lectures also come with a PDF transcript for later reference.  If you need some recommendations, check out Keith Norris: Paleo Discussion, Mike Mahler: Hormone Optimization, and Perry Nickelston: Trigger Points.  Movement Lectures has well over 100 lectures to choose from and more are added monthly.  Lectures start at $2.95.  Laree Draper at movementlectures.com has generously offered a $5.00 off coupon to use towards any lecture.  Use the code Paleo-gift during checkout.  The coupon expires 4/30/12.  Head on over to movementlectures.com and start downloading lectures today.

Eat Like a Dinosaur 

Written by “The Paleo Parents” Matthew and Stacy, Eat Like a Dinosaur is a well thought out, very colorful recipe and guide book for gluten-free kids.  This is a beautiful full color book replete with mouth watering photographs, helpful “sticky notes”, instructions on how kids can help, and very tasty recipes.  The “Special Treats” chapter will be a sure fire hit with kids, while the “Main Dishes and Side Dishes” chapters will have even the pickiest children cleaning their plates.  Features like the “Allergen Guide” and “Special Projects” are what set this book apart from the rest.  My favorite recipes include; 50/50 Bacon Burgers, Greens and Bacon (see a trend here), Ten Tomato Ketchup, and Zucchini Latkes.  I do plan on trying Apple Bacon Slaw very soon.  This book has a lot to offer and is really a great guide book for parents with gluten sensitive kids.  Eat Like a Dinosaur receives 5 Stars from me and my family.  Pick up your copy today.

Mangrate – Grill Enhancement System

The Setup:

3 Mangrates –  Each grate weighs 8 pounds, is 15-inches long by 4 1/4 inches wide and measure 1 3/8 inches thick.

Charbroil Commercial Series Gas Grill

The Claim:

“Grill juicy, perfectly cooked steak, poultry and fish. ManGrates sear meats and vegetables with restaurant signature grill marks for a professional look and taste”.  Mangrate Website

The Results:

All I can say is wow!  After seasoning the Mangrate’s as directed, except I used coconut oil, I decided to cook some rib-eyes.  They came out with most beautiful grill marks I have ever seen.  Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures.  I seared my steaks for 2 minutes each side, then turned down the heat to medium and cooked for another 3 minutes on each side.  They were cooked to a perfect medium.  To see how long the grates would retain heat, I turned off the grill and waited 30 minutes.  The Mangrate’s had a temperature of 175°F while the Charbroil grill grates were at 80°F.  This was with an outside temperature of 50°F!  Next was to check the claims of no flare-ups.  I brought out the 80/20 ground beef.  I usually have to grill burgers on low and constantly monitor the burgers.  Guess what?  I was able to cook them on medium with no flare-ups.  The Mangrate’s really move the grease away from the flame.  For the best grilling experience, pick up some Mangrate’s today.
