Possible new essays for rawpaleodiet.com and this forum
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:07:27 pm »
I have been thinking of writing 2 essays for rawpaleodiet.com. One would be a definitive essay on the myriad ways that cooking causes harm to one's health. The other essay would be one suggesting a myriad ways for a SAD-eater to eat a "less unhealthy" cooked diet, if they didn't want to go rawpalaeo.

The thing is, I have noticed how a lot of us have partners or relatives who have all sorts of health-problems but who are hysterically afraid of the notion of eating raw meats. The 2nd essay would therefore be useful as a sort of compromise for the latter. I already know of some ways(such as cooking in moisture, cooking at lower temperatures etc.) But I suppose I will have to do some more research to make the essay complete.

Sous Vide Moves From Avant-Garde to the Countertop

By traditional methods, the steak has to be blasted with heat from the outside, anywhere from 350 degrees (normal oven temperature) to 800 degrees (the grill at Peter Luger’s). As the heat transfer takes place, the meat changes: proteins coagulate, fibers contract, collagens loosen, liquid evaporates. By the time the center is a rosy 135 degrees, the surrounding flesh is dried out.

“About 45 percent of a rare beef loin cooked by normal methods is technically overcooked,” said Chris Young, the culinary research manager at Intellectual Ventures in Seattle....

A Simple Solution: Steam, Boil, Stew Despite the ubiquity of AGEs, Dr. Vlassara and her team offer simple, safe, and economic solutions that echo the recommendations given concerning trans fats—watch what you eat. New methods of cooking to reduce AGE intake, particularly steaming, boiling or making stews, can make a difference. "Keeping the heat down and maintaining the water content in food reduces AGE levels," Dr. Vlassara says. A 50 percent reduction in AGE intake could have a significant and positive impact on overall health and may even help extend one’s lifespan, according to Dr. Vlassara. In other studies, the team has found that cutting AGE intake in half, but maintaining a diet comprised of the same calories and fat, increased the lifespan of animals when compared with animals fed their usual diet.
