For The Love of Food

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

This week vitamin supplements are accused of causing cancer, real food gets defensive, and fruit (sugar and all) is still good for you.

Want to see all my favorite links? (There’s lots more). 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).

Links of the week

What inspired you this week?

  1. Darya, I just got your book in the mail and flipped through a few pages.I know I am going to enjoy this book also this is the first news letter I have gotten from you and I can’t believe the special attention you give your people! Don’t think I can compare your book with Gywyneth Palthrow’s book , they are totally different in context . Thanks , Lawrence

  2. The idea that antioxidants stop you fighting cancer is based on 2 concepts –
    1) antioxidants stop free radicals that kill cancer cells
    2) antioxidants become pro-oxidants and cause free radicals that promote cancer.
    Even a fool can see that these arguments, which have some basis in truth, tend to cancel each other out.
    And this seems to be what happens in real life.

    Antioxidant paradox! Interesting Now I would no longer nag my 18 yr old to take her vitamins…

    With regards to Willpower – yes there are other strengths that would make you eat something or not – my unorthodox theory is light years ahead

  4. Loved the what’s your most important relationship analogy. So true! Thanks for the great roundup and for sharing :)

    I am not sure, i understand the chart. What if, what I am REALLY craving, is just the cookie? Is there no way it could actually be just the cookie and nothing else?

    Just be reading your link to the wholegrain article. Its amazing how so much of the nutrients is removed during the milling process. There great for slow release of carbohydrates and keeping a steady blood sugar level. I was searching for an article on foods and anxiety, have you ever done any?? cheers
