For The Love of Food

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

This will be the last link roundup for a few weeks, since next Friday I’ll be traveling for my wedding (eeek!) and the following week I’ll be on my honeymoon (less scary, but still – eeek!). I’ll cue up some good stuff from the archives while I’m away, and of course share some pics. Wish me luck!

This week from around the internet Rob Rhinehart decides food is overrated, being healthy is easier when you enjoy it, and how your slicing method affects onion pungency.

Want to see all my favorite links? Be sure to follow me on on Delicious. 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. (And yes, I took that pepper heart pic myself).

      You’re welcome! I saw your comment and made a mental note, but forgot to tell you I was going to do it. WordPress actually has made it even easier for me (I only have to do it once instead of for each individual link), so it’s my pleasure :)

      • Tam says:

        Btw, congratulations on all your new changes! I knew something big was taking up your time when you were mostly recycling your (great!) old posts. Thanks again for all you do!

        Thank you for your patience, it’s been tough. I’m actually dying to get back to normal blogging again, but it’ll likely be a couple more months. I do have a new post for next week though :)

    I completely agree; don’t abandon food. However, I absolutely see a place for the “soylent” type formulation of concentrated nutrients. It’s difficult to find all three traits of cheap, quick, and healthy in food. Especially if you’re athletic and want a high calorie, high protein diet. And are a poor/busy student. A formulation would be useful during those extra busy weeks. I’ll admit that I would probably abandon it when I have more money though.

    You know much more about this than I do, so I hope I don’t irk you, but why would a formulation be so bad healthwise? It’s been looked at for decades at least, however (see my attached paper from the 1930′s). The results of this full time diet from the 1930′s doesn’t seem so bad.

    Why should a part time diet created with 2012′s knowledge of nutrition not be sufficient to maintain optimal health?

      EDIT: I apologize for the stupidly long dropbox link, and the date of the article is actually 1944.

      It’s a hospital study in which they fed a group of sick patients a formulated diet and measured their health before and after. Most patients gained weight and they didn’t find significant issues.

What do you think?
