What’s On Our Minds: Women With Guns

Chris is shocked that I took a Firearms Fundamentals class… which is strange since he was there when I picked out my Walther PPS M2. 

So we discuss the uptick in new gun ownership. It’s wild. People who never had any interest in shooting (like me) are now arming themselves. We also discuss the competitive sport of shooting, which actually looks like fun. And now certain competitions are mixing strong-man type lifts with outdoor shooting where you have to run around and lift heavy things. Would you ever try it?

This made me want to. Check out competitor Jessica Hook in the physically challenging, 3-gun competition.

This Week’s Quiz Topic: Supplements & Ingredients

How much do you know about supplement ingredients? This week’s quiz covers everything from life extension supps to powders and pills for sexual performance.

And here’s some more detailed info about that study on protein powder: Whole Foods vs. Protein Powders. 

Newsflash: The Food For Fullness

Cover your ears, low carbers. According to a study in the journal Nutrients, the lowly potato might just be the perfect starch to include in your diet. And we couldn’t be happier to hear that the theory we formed during after-dinner walks has been backed up by science.

Researchers had study participants eat meals containing the same number of calories and macronutrients, just different forms of carbohydrate. Some would have potato, some rice, and others pasta. The rest of their meals were the same: meat and vegetables.

The meals containing potatoes made subjects experience fullness faster and eat fewer total calories. They also reported that they stayed satiated much longer after the meal compared to when they had meals containing the other two sources of carbs.

The implications of this are huge for those wanting to dial in the diet. If you’re trying to decrease your caloric intake without feeling hungry, then potatoes are a smart choice of carb.

So we dig into the impact of foods based upon their volume, tell you about the worst-performing carb, and share some practical tips.

And here’s the easy recipe Chris talked about:

Fast Baked Potato Rounds

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Slice a white potato into quarter-inch rounds.

3. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

4. Lightly coat with oil, like avocado oil or whatever you prefer.

5. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chives or anything you like.

6. Bake for about 20 minutes, give or take a couple minutes.

    listen to the episode 41 spuds. I have an oxo mandolin and recommend a cut resistant glove, as I have sliced the tip off my finger first time i tried to free hand a potato on it about 7 years ago.

      Ouch! That mandolin injury sounds awful! Thank you so much for the advice on those gloves – I’ve been wondering if they work well and thinking about getting a pair myself. Great tip!
