A year ago, when a couple people I know would try to get me to try out their gluten-free food, I was like “I don’t know what gluten is – but it’s delicious!” (ahem – keep all your gluten free stuff to yourself!)
And as I’ve gotten more serious about health and eating like a caveman, gluten has fallen by the wayside – although I swear to goodness – I am not a food nazi. I did however find a really interesting interview done about cardiovascular health, diet, and paleo-style eating. Apparently:
Quercetin, a flavonoid found in high concentrations in green and black tea, capers, apple skins, and other fruit skins of citrus fruits is known to be particularly helpful for increasing blood vessel strength, ease hay fever, eczema, sinusitis and even asthma. Quercetin is also revered for its ability to reduce your risk for heart disease.
So now I must figure out a way to make candied fruit peel, primal style, methinks. Those ladies over at Pinterest figured some pretty cool stuff out too: Primal Recipes
I want to know, how much improvement can be seen of cardiovascular health by consciously eating Quercetin and eating primal?
Robb Wolfe, a nutritionalist, has a really interesting interview here about that very question: Cardiovascular Health
Chris Kresser has some astonishing insight into food and nutrition. He started out the same way that I did (sick) – he picked up some weird tropical flu in Asia that no doctor could help him with, thus turned into a “nutritional scout.”
I just thought that I would share.
