    I loved your guest post on MizFit! I’ve read many similar articles on the topic, but yours made the complicated subject simple to understand.

    Also, I’m pleased to report that my family eats many of those 33 foods everyday!

  2. Great posts! I have to admit, I think some of the 33 foods are great foods, but like you, I have to question the source. Regarding the whole grain cereal article on MSNBC – I can’t believe they left Uncle Sam Cereal out of the list. It is, in my opinion, one of the healthiest options out there.

      You nailed it. It is not that the foods are good or bad, it’s that the recommendation is tainted by sponsorship. Most people aren’t going to be able to tell the difference, and that is how they trick us. They throw in something good and so people think everything on the list is good. But Dole recommending pineapple is no better than Dannon recommending yogurt or Marlboro recommending cigarettes.

    Darya – was reading my daily “Ideal Bite” to find they are doing an eco-book club over the summer, and Michael Polan’s book is for July. Since you have referred to it a couple of times, I decided to join up and read it. idealbite.com

    Thanks for great articles – Linda Moran

    Since you’re a Farmer’s Market fan, have you checked out Alemany? It’s not hip, and most in SF don’t even know it’s there. I’ve been regularly shopping there every Saturday for about 15 years, even drove over from the East Bay when I lived there. Unlike Ferry Plaza, it’s not for tourists, but is cheap, tasty food. Much is organic, though not all certified. About 75% of my food is directly from this market.

    • Darya Pino says:

      Great point, Julie! I tried to go to Alemany once, but I messed up and went on flea market day instead. I would love to check it out but it is tough for me to get there since I do not have a car.

      • julie says:

        Alemany is a hassle, even with a car. I’ve taken to just going by bike, which is an ugly ride, full of homeless people and their carts, pee pee smells, trash, freeway on-off ramps, ugly industrial neighborhoods, you name it. But I’m hooked on the place. Tomorrow, especially, since I live in the Mission, and it’s Carnaval-I’m not moving my car until I leave for weekend on Sunday-parking is going to be worse than impossible.

  5. I need a way to keep track of all the great articles I read all week! How do you do it?

    • Darya Pino says:

      There are many ways, but social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon are probably easiest. Otherwise you can email them to yourself or post them on Facebook and/or Twitter and run searches when you want to find them.
