A new national awakening is dawning on the eating of saturated fats!

On the heels of the national news that saturated fats, (long discouraged by many health experts) is not as bad as once thought, I bring you this. Why? Two major studies now have indicated that the original 1960's documents put forth to link saturated fats with heart disease were bogus, to put it mildly.

Thusly and with renewed hope, I now plan to sally forth with a modified version of the Paleo diet!

What if your government is feeding you a load of crap?
Here's the deal. Both mainstream vegans and the Paleo people both agree that processed foods are not particularly good for long term health! And, they are both in agreement that many of the fast food carbohydrate based cookies, crackers and chips are not the best for us to eat either short term or long term. What they do agree on is for everyone to eat m ore fresh vegetables, fruits and some 'unprocessed' fresh meats, poultry and fish. (Just so happens, this is what we ate as a species, for a million years or more before the advent of our agrarian settlement about ten thousand years ago).

To that end, I have put together the following simple 'splash, dice and dash' recipe for a simple and healthy stir fry!

Low lean to fat, no heart disease or tooth decay!
82 grams beef, cut into small pieces
60 grams bell pepper, cut into strips
60 grams onion, cut into strips
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp olive oil

Optional additions:
Diced tomatoes
Pineapple chunks
Mushrooms, okra, celery....
whatever, use your imagination!

Directions: Add the oil, heat on medium high, add the rest of the ingredients, cook for about four minutes and serve! Sides can include an egg and toast! Note: I often throw this together in the time it takes to toast the bread!
