Yes, for different reasons, both dried fruit and nuts cause gas. (Google FODMAPs). I am very gas-prone so I avoid both. As for snacks general approach is to eat big enough meals that I don't need snacks. But some options might be: 1/2 an... (more)

Does anyone know where or if Dr. Harris is writing on the web these days? I miss his insights and directions. His blog is what got me started on the path of good health several years ago.

i've heard that casein can damage the lining of one's intestines much in the same way gluten does. is butter ok to use in that case?

Probably not. In fact, the butyric acid in butter actually is supposed to help heal the gut.

Texture might be mushy, but it won't hurt you. Harmful bacteria in beef is only on surface areas. That's why Health Departments urge you to cook ground beef to MW, but rare steaks are never a concern.
