We follow up on Leda Meredith's fermentation how to book, and why Rick buys his how-to books in hardcover and not an ebook. Rick likes Leda's book finding it easy to follow. Links are below.
We read some mail based on our podcast about dog allergies, its seems a raw food diet helps some dogs with their allergies. A good quality dog food does contain the right stuff, Rick and Eric believes. And you can buy frozen raw food in some pet stores, it looks like frozen bologna.
Eric tells of his two weeks of gluten free and how he realized how much he loves bread and how it makes him sleepy during the day. We reference Mark Bittman and his books, Food Matters and VB6.
Rick tells about how he has lost weight by walking every day and avoiding bread. He uses two fitness apps, My Fitness Pal and Moves.
i enjoyed listening to u talk about your diets
Hey Rick and Eric!
Way to go on the walking, Rick! Good job! I like My Fitness Pal too. I listen to podcasts when I walk. I tried the audiobooks (from the library) but I couldn't get through them before they expired. Then I discovered podcasts. The first podcast I found was Gardenfork!
Eric Gunnar Rochow

thx karen, we'll keep you posted! eric.
I really like MyFitnessPal. Easy to use and it really keeps track of adding and subtracting (with activities you do) really well.
Hi Eric and Rick,
I enjoyed listening to this podcast. Congratulations Rick…you must feel terrific!
I would be interested to see some pressure cooking videos as well as any fall planting you do. I have my winter cabbages and kale in but still have to sow my favas. I much prefer pressure cooking to slow cooking. My favourite pressure cooker cookbook is Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass. I have had it for years and love so many recipes from it….including making garlicky mashed potatoes in 3 minutes!!! There is no turning back after that lol. If you can find one, a pressure frypan is totally awesome…flatter and wider…terrific for small batches of beans and curries. You mentioned Paleo and Atkins. I am currently reading The Meat Racket by Christopher Leonard. It's a chilling look into the industrialization of the meat industry. It will make anyone think twice about eating a meat-centric diet especially a conventionally sourced one. I'm in the camp of a whole foods, plant-based diet 90% of the time and high quality local organic meat/sustainable fish 10% of the time. Love your site…happy holidays to you both!
I'm a huge Bodymedia fan. It's excellent for keeping track of calories burned and steps taken throughout the day.
