Alter Ego: Guest Food Blogger #4

Bill Staley and Hayley Mason over at The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate recently invited Ruby Reduction to review their cookbook Make it Paleo, a collection of over 200 grain-free recipes.

When our copy arrived in the mail, we couldn’t wait to begin.

I should preface this by saying I don’t classify our lifestyle as being Paleo (at least not in the full-fledged, card carrying sense).

Granted, the meals we prepare generally follow many of the principles that form the Paleo or Primal diet: lots of vegetables, a high quality protein source, and a healthy serving of fat.

We also tend to eschew grains and legumes; limit our intake of sugar (including high-sugar fruits); and avoid processed foods altogether.

However, despite the similarities in dietary choices, we still love the occasional pizza or cold pint (or pitcher) from one of our favourite craft breweries. (Just kidding, try this one).

In the Press: Gatekeeper: The Fighting Life of Gary “Big Daddy” Goodridge

In thirteen seconds–roughly the time it will take to read this sentence–Gary Goodridge delivered eight consecutive elbow strikes to the unprotected head of Paul Herrera, the second blow knocking his opponent unconscious.

To spectators, it was a sight that was as dramatic as it was terrifying; the ultimate first impression in a sport where the line between athletics and violence has always been blurred.

In thirteen seconds, Gary Goodridge became a star.

Check out for the review of Gatekeeper: The Fighting Life of Gary “Big Daddy” Goodridge.
