For The Love of Food

Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.

Lots of talk this week about the pros and cons of local foods. Also, congress says pizza is a vegetable, heritage turkeys are the greatest thing since bacon and coffee/tea may reduce your risk of mercury exposure from fish.

Want to see all my favorite links? Be sure to follow me on on Digg. I also share links on Twitter (@summertomato), Google+ and the Summer Tomato Facebook page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

    Just a heads up, but that USDA release says nothing about local food being profitable. It just says sales amount to $4.8bn. Key difference. I certainly hope its profitable though!

  2. Danielle says:

    4.8 billion dollar industry – hooray! And in the same week, pizza is a vegetable? Nothing quite like some good ole polarization to bring down morale.

    re: What I learned in this article was that the real question was how much sauce (certainly full of sugar) counted as a vegetable.

    I thought it was pro-tomato paste.
    “Just “an eighth of a cup of tomato paste is credited with as much nutritional value as half a cup of vegetables,” my colleague Dina ElBoghdady explained last week.”

    Also:
    Lycopene (tomatoes) works with garlic (garlic) and rosmarinic acid (sage, basil) to protect LDL.
