I’m back with another installment of “Explore More,” where I take you to visit some of the interesting places I found this week on the internet.

Buckle up and let’s go!

Stefani Ruper wrote a fabulous guest post for The Paleo Parents on whether women can be healthy and overweight.  She discusses other markers of health beyond the scale which is a useful context before you dive into …

This must-read piece from Whole 9.  It’s called “Lies We Tell Ourselves” and I might just post it everyday until I am certain you have all read it.  If you have ever belittled yourself for not working out hard enough, not being strict enough on a diet, or otherwise obsessed over your fitness, read this now.

I cannot wait to make these fruit snacks with my kiddos!

When I developed my Chocolate Plantain Snack Cake recipe, I had actually set out to make a brownie recipe.  When mine turned out more cake-like than brownie-like, but still really delicious, I abandoned the brownie effort.  Good thing, too, because it would have been wasted time.  Preparing It Paleo’s Plantain Brownies are just the ticket!  We made them for the kids for an event this weekend, and the kids loved them.  Mom and Dad had a few, too.

Because I just can’t tolerate dairy, this Chai-Spiced Molasses Custard is a no-go for me.  But doesn’t it look like a delicious fall treat?

Ever had a doc fuss at you over your BMI?  (Or worse, over your kid’s BMI?)  I despise BMI measurements.  They don’t take into account differences in the size of things like, oh say, BONES.  Goodness, I could go on and on.  Or, you could read this piece from NPR explaining in terrific terms why BMI is bogus.

Pregnant?  Nursing?  Otherwise limiting your fish intake because of the mercury levels?  Stop the madness and listen to this podcast from Chris Kresser.  (You can also read the transcript.)  You’ll hear from an expert in nutrition and mercury about why the Selenium Health Benefit Value is what really matters in regards to fish consumption and that unless you’re eating pilot whale, shark, tilefish, king mackerel or swordfish, you can (and should!) consume ocean fish.

A notable Paleo blogger reveals his struggle with bulimia.  (You read that right – a man talks about bingeing and purging.)

And, finally, more wonderful reasons to consume bone broth.

That’s it for this week.  Happy exploring!

(Oh, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN, too!)

    Those brownies started off as a wild experiment. With a very happy outcome 🙂

    Love it! I forgot to add that they met my daughter’s requirement for a “treat” – “Do they have cocoa AND chocolate chips in them?” Yes, dear. Why, yes they do. 😉
