For The Love of Food

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

Why the Heart Attack Grill is the least of our worries, how to feel more full from your breakfast, and why we should all just get along.

    Since a couple of the articles this week relate to eating at home, I wanted to put in a plug for slow cookers. I *love* to cook … but when I started graduate school/teaching, feeding myself started to feel like work, and I found myself hitting restaurants more often. Even in the Bay Area, eating out easily means bigger portions, more carbohydrates, and fewer vegetables than I’d choose otherwise. But my $40 slow cooker has changed that – I spend 10 minutes tossing together some meat or beans, herbs, and chopped veggies from our CSA box (CSA = another way to save time, getting fresh local veggies into my fridge when I can’t take a long stroll through the farmer’s market), and then take off for the day. When I return home, exhausted, there’s a hot, delicious stew waiting for me (and leftovers for the next day). I still cook (and eat out), but I save those activities for nights I can enjoy it.

    I am not sure how hunger relates to GI or fat, or a multitude of other factors. But two weeks ago, I started eating only low GI and GL (glycemic load) food – basically, I stopped adding quinoa or rice to my lunch salad and replaced the calories with food like avocado, or beans or a fresh fruit. I’ve seen a huge difference in my feeling of hunger. I am no more craving for a snack at 5 pm.

  3. Thanks for the weekly link roundup…always so inspiring! After reading some of these articles I feel especially lucky that my husband, son and I are able to sit down and eat 21 home-cooked-from-scratch meals together each week (mostly made from locally grown ingredients)…with the once-per-month date-night dinner out exception :)

    I would be curious as to how RA correlates with dieting history/weight cycling against historically stable obese folks.

What do you think?
