Gourmet Cooking for the Paleo Diet (part 1) – Meet the Chef


peakmomen

Published on May 31, 2013

Longtime chef and caterer Pauli Halstead had drafted her cookbook “Cuisine for Whole Health” when her personal diet took a U-turn. Working with nutritionist Nora Gedgaudas, she removed gluten and sugar from her diet. In a few months, a lifetime of sugar addiction and depression was behind her. She revised her cookbook to become “Primal Cuisine: Cooking for the Paleo Diet.” In our chat, she noted how the paleo diet reflects the foods we evolved with, especially animal protein and fats that our body and brain require. We discussed which foods are eliminated (primarily grains and vegetable seed oils), and which are emphasized (animal products). In part 2, Pauli takes us into the kitchen for a survey of good natural fats. She demonstrates how to make ghee (clarified butter), and her favorite dip. Episode 236. [theprimalcuisine.com]

It is one of the largest ecological disasters in the world. As a bitter dispute over who is at fault rages, this report takes a powerful grassroots look at 50 years of devastation in the Niger Delta.

Aerial shots show vast black islands surrounded by shimmering slicks of oil. This is what much of the Niger Delta looks like after what environmentalists say is “the equivalent of one Exxon Valdez every year”. While it is revealed by secret correspondance released by Wikileaks that one minister can siphon off $20 million dollars in bribes from oil companies, local communities are reduced to eating fish meat that tastes of kerosene. This inequality has led to the rise in cases of sabotage of pipelines to get access to crude oil. It is this that the oil companies blame now for the level of pollution. But for ecologists there are no doubts that poor maintenance is far more to blame than the low level sabotage for the fact that the Delta has more than one leak every day. They say the companies consider it cheaper to lose the oil than maintain and protect the pipes. And as the world turns a blind eye, the desperation of the locals intensifies. “There’s a vast contrast between what we saw in America, when President Barack Obama was on the side of the people during the Gulf of Mexico spill, and here.”

Oil War – Nigeria


journeymanpictures

Uploaded on Jul 5, 2007

June 2005
Nigeria’s lucrative oil reserves may have enriched its politicians but they’ve brought little but misery to ordinary people. Now, a rebel group is fighting for a share of the profits. “I need help. I need help,” begs a woman, clutching her young children in despair. Her home has just been demolished to create luxury housing for foreign oil workers. “The oil boom has turned into the oil doom!” laments Pastor Lekia. Across the Niger Delta, there’s growing resentment at the oil industry. “Corruption pervades the whole place, starting with the way contracts are awarded,” complains lawyer Ledum Mittee. “There seems to be some sort of collusion between the oil companies and those in power.” But militia leader Asari Dokubo has vowed to sever that link. He’s fighting to seize control of the oil and give it back to the people. “We own the oil!” he proclaims. “The thieves are the people in Abuja.” And across Nigeria, young men are flocking to his call. Last September, he spooked the international markets and forced the price of oil to $50 a barrel by threatening to attack foreign oil companies. The government was forced to agree a truce but he’s threatened to rearm unless oil companies leave. Nigerians no longer expect help from their own government. It’s militia leaders like Asari who are winning their trust.
