What's more is that it's most certainly a better alternative to commercially available cereals full of sugars, preservatives, artificial this and that.

Let's have a little discussion amongst ourselves. Today's topic?
Don't be the paper towel guy.
True or False:
1. Paper towels are to be used as personal hygiene products.
Do you do something similar at home?
It isn't the money issue. It is the waste of resources issue. It is the environmental issue, or should I say impact, by wasting copious amounts of paper product unnecessarily.
Here at GCF, we are starting "Bring Your Own Towel Tuesday". (and, Mon, Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat.)

I have a healthy obsession with blueberries. That bright blueish purple hue really gets my hormones pumping. Almost as much as pomegranates.
In any event this recipe right here proved to me that meat and blueberries can bode well together.
A stew is one of the best platforms to construct a great Paleo meal and this gem right here has got a plethora of healthy foods being combined. You shall get plenty of protein from all that beef as well as important minerals like iron. If you opt for grass-fed beef- which I most certainly hope you do- then we can add a hefty dose of beneficial fatty acids to the mix. Ya know, the same fatty acids that have proven to be anti-cancerous and also assist in fat burning. We call this CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid which is found in abundance in grass-fed meats, along with many antioxidants including vitamin E.
I ain't even gonna talk about blueberries 'cause we all know they are some of the most nutritious foods on this planet. Carrots have long been known to be healthy because of their beta carotene content. Onions also add to the nutritional value of this meal. Combine all of these aforementioned ingredients and you got yourself a nutritious and satiating meal.
3. Add a half of a cup of red wine and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Add enough filtered water so that the meat is mostly covered.
This is an African curry that can be done with chicken, shrimp or crab. Heck you can even throw some beef in there. Either way, it's rather simple to make and does not require many ingredients.
Whose bright idea was it to replace butter (which is rich in the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and the minerals magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and selenium, all essential for good health) with factory-made margarine? The latter is made from refined vegetable oils (high in inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids) which are neutralized, bleached, filtered and deodorized and turned into a spreadable form by a chemical process called hydrogenation since they are not naturally solid at room temperature. It is also inundated with artificial colors and flavors. If it was made in a factory then chances are it is probably not good for you in the first place. Seriously, this stuff does not go into our bodies and we hope it ain't going into yours!
