The Gluten-Free Hoax [VIDEO]

The Gluten Free Hoax

I like gluten-free beer.

So, every so often I’ll mosey down the road to the local health food store and score myself a six-pack before the big game.

A couple months ago, while swiping my debit card to complete my purchase, the guy bagging my brewskies initiated an awkward discourse. It went like this…

Bagger: Do you have celiac?

Me: No, I don’t.

Bagger: Then why are you buying gluten-free beer?

He had that I-should-be-rolling-my-eyes-but-I’m-at-work look on his face, as if I were some dunce just following the gluten-free crowd.

If I had the time I would have broken into full YouTube video mode and dropped some truth bombs on him, but the checker was already handing me my receipt.

So I replied…

JERFin’ with Dr. Sara: Thai Coconut Soup Recipe!

the_hormone_cureby Sean Croxton

Thai food just isn’t my thing.

Every time I’m forced to visit a Thai restaurant I end up staring at the menu for fifteen minutes hoping that something somewhat appetizing will magically appear.

It doesn’t…

So I just grin and bear it, wishing we met up at the Japanese spot.

A couple of weeks ago I found myself in a similar predicament — filming an impromptu cooking video in Dr. Sara’s kitchen. But this time I was more concerned about spitting out my heaping spoonful of Thai Coconut Soup during the “taste test” scene.

Click the video below to find out how our Thai Coconut Soup turned out!

And don’t miss Dr. Sara on Underground Wellness Radio LIVE tonight at 5pm PT/8pm ET.

If you missed her two previous appearances on the show, they were the most downloaded episodes of 2013. She’s a riot!

Here’s THE LINK to listen in.

Enjoy your soup!

Podcast 245: The TRUTH about Kombucha.

Hannah-Crumby Sean Croxton

I love me some kombucha.

Aside from the detox and digestive benefits, a cold bottle of “the booch” just makes me feel good.

BUT, my obsession with Mystic Mango and Strawberry Serenity has its fair share of critics, especially when it comes to the sugar content, alcohol volume, acidity, cost, and safety.

This week on the podcast I was more than happy to to help set the record straight with the help of kombucha aficionado Hannah Crum of Kombucha Kamp.

Here are my bullets:

7:55 – Love at First Sip: How Hannah and Kombucha met.

10:44 – Is kombucha just another passing fad?

13:17 – Five health benefits of kombucha — digestion, detox, immunity, blood sugar, and mood.

14:45 – How kombucha helped Mr. Crum lose 40 pounds and heal his acid reflux.

17:24 – Why the specific acids in kombucha actually KILL candida overgrowth.

19:55 – Why’s it so darn expensive?

The Best DATE I Ever Had!

07by Sean Croxton

Her name was Mary.

Pretty girl with a great smile and magnetic personality…

And she’s likes to JERF. (That’s hot.)

I always say that the way to my heart is through my stomach, so I was intrigued by her self-professed confidence in the kitchen.

Could this be love?

She invited me over to her place, but not without texting me a list of items — prosciutto, pistachios, and an orange — to pick up on the way.

Hmmm…I buy it, she cooks it. I can get used to this.

She asked if I could bring my video camera along.

Well, this is…different, I thought.

But instead of getting all judge-y, I said to myself…

Just go with it, Sean.

Go with it.

THIS could get interesting…

So how’d it go? Well…click the video below and find out for yourself.

Easily the best DATE I’ve ever had.

Love at first bite.

When Animals Eat Right, You Do Too!

by Sean Croxton

Maybe they’ll believe me now.

Last weekend, while watching my beloved Oregon Ducks take a loss, I somehow found my buddies and I in a debate regarding the role of meat in heart disease and cancer.

In their opinion, meat is something that should seldom be consumed. The saturated fat will kill you. Studies show that it causes cancer. It’s hard on “the system” to digest.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

But hey, I used to believe a lot of the same stuff. I can completely understand where they were coming from. I’ve been there.

I told them about the difference between grass-fed and grain-fed meats.

I explained how the CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) in grass-fed meat actually fights cancer.

I pretty much performed a YouTube bit on the lack of evidence demonstrating that saturated fat causes heart disease.

In one ear. Out the other.

You know how it goes. Friends and family rarely change their minds about anything if YOU are the one relaying the information. But if a complete stranger tells them the same thing, they’ll believe every word of it.

Weird how that works, huh?
