For The Love of Food

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

This week your great-grandma’s bad habits make you less healthy, concerned scientists lay the smackdown on the Farm Bill, and Cookie Monster offers mindful eating advice.

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).

    Thanks for bringing my attention to the Cookie Monster video. It was on rotation by Zara (my 3 year old) yesterday, but I really paid no attention…. I guess she’s learning…

    “11 Trillion Reasons” comment:

    Obviously, in a free market you want cheap food but we only see the direct cost of this food. I suspect when we add in indirect costs caused by these foods, healthcare and lost employee productivity being the largest, we don’t do well on our total cost long term compared to other countries. This is like seeing an iceberg where 90% of the cost, the indirect cost, is hidden below the surface. Someone needs to do this research.

    I’m surprised Delicious is still being used! :]

    Is the link going to a new stack on Delicious? It doesn’t really show any content.

  6. Darya , When can we expect to see Foodist in Audio book format ?

    As a scientist can I please have your take on this : Navitas Naturals Acai has long been a cherished food of traditional Amazonian cultures for its health benefits and unique taste. Favored among athletes and health seekers, the deep purple acai berry is a potent source of antioxidants, healthy fats, and essential micronutrients.

    Also, You always mention fresh fish in your meals. I thought Tilapia a farm grown fish was a better choice noting the nutritional facts that warrant great health benefits .

    I wish we could pick WHICH ancestors we will take after. One of my great-grandmothers lived to be either 106 or 108 (there are conflicting reports) and died because she was walking (see? walking is good for you!) into town and thought she was spry enough to dash over the tracks before the train got there.

    She wasn’t.

    But I’m thinking that’s still pretty darn spry.
