For The Love of Food

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

This week my biggest fear about GMO has come true, why your kids might be eating Twinkies for breakfast and 101 reasons to walk more and take the stairs.

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.

    Argh, so many bowls are white! I can’t help eating all this rice!

    Wondering why you are not worried about the adverse health effects of GMO “foods?” Haven’t you read the science… not the stuff put out by you-know-who, the other info?

      I worked in a genetics lab for 6yrs, so I know more about this stuff than anyone should. GMO is such a vague term that it can’t be innately bad. That’s like saying Western food is bad…. it just covers too many things to be an accurate statement. For that reason I think it needs to be taken on a food-by-food basis. I have no trouble believing some GMO foods can be bad for you.

    I’ve found that the easiest way to ensure my child eats his veggies is to dress them in either butter or bacon fat. No stickers are necessary at that point.

    Cooked the kale/cranberries/quinoa salad tonight. It thought it was ok, but kids really loved it, even my daughter who is not a big fan of kale. They eat like us since the beginning. I’ve never tried to hide veggies in ketchup or muffin or juice or anything. Why trying to disguise something that tastes good?!
    Thanks for the link to 23 and 1/2 hours.
