Loren Cordain on CBS Sunday Morning

anyone else see Loren Cordain on CBA Sunday morning? It was a short blurb of a story about the Paleo diet, sandwiched between the mexican hot dog story, the mini-hamburger, the "comfort food" mac and cheese special, and the "pie for life" program where you get a pie every week as long as you "live," but there's a surcharge if you DON'T get ice cream with the pie. The pie is cooked by a clinically obese man who can hardly walk with obvious metabolic issues.

oh, and the episode started off with "americans who have too little to eat."

wow.

later,

I saw it and the other stories. It was really short but it seemed that they explained it pretty well. I bet most people paid more attention to the hot dog story though. The story on Alton Brown was pretty interesting.

Re: Loren Cordain on CBS Sunday Morning

Yes, saw it!! I love that show, and try to catch at least part of it each Sunday. And yes, what an ironic bunch of stories today. Have to admit, I was drooling over those pies!!

Re: Loren Cordain on CBS Sunday Morning

I'm glad they didn't try to make the Paleo diet seem like some crazy outlandish thing. But after sitting through the CF nutrition cert it was really hard to watch the other stories.

I do want a knife that can cut through water bottles

That knife dude was amazing!! But I was thinking that, if it can cut through water bottles, and rope and stuff, it could also cut off some of my fingers while I'm chopping veggies.

It's counterintuitive, but sharp knives are actually safer because they require less pressure. I cut myself good multiple times with the dull thrift store knives I had in college, but I have never had more than a very minor nick in 5+ years since buying a quality knife.


Back to the OP...a pie a week for life?

Re: Loren Cordain on CBS Sunday Morning

correction. its a pie a month. sorry, i was exaggerating a bit, eh? now it all seems perfectly normal, lol

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/...n5737953.shtml

And don’t forget to order a la mode. Bud applies a 50 cent surcharge if you don't have ice cream on your pie.

"You have to have ice cream on pie," he explained. "It's just wrong if you don't!"


man, i'm so friggin' hungry right now.
