Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.
This week wheat is let off the hook, you’re still not eating enough egg yolks, and happiness slows aging.
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).
