For The Love of Food

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

Some great reads this week. There’s scary news for those of us who spend a lot of time at the computer, as well as a terrifying example of what it means to be a food-like product. On the other side, there’s some good news about cholesterol.

I’m still participating in the Inkwell interview at The Well with David Gans and Diane Brown until June 23. Have questions for me or just want to eavesdrop? Come join us! http://bit.ly/9n1v8O

I read many more wonderful articles than I post here each week. If you’d like to see more or just don’t want to wait until Friday, be sure to follow me on Twitter (@summertomato) or the Summer Tomato Facebook fan page. For complete reading lists join me on the social bookmarking sites StumbleUpon and Delicious. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you there. (Note: If you want a follow back on Twitter introduce yourself with an @ message).

    Of course I checked the link with the utensils for geeks ;) I don’t know if that particular ceramic peeler is good, but I’m using a ceramic knife for some time now and love it.
    But the “vertical spiral slicer” is in my opinion one of those things that is not going to be used often enough to justify the space that it takes up .. not to mention the resources required to produce it.

    I find it a very useful exercise to go through the stuff I have and see how much garbage I bought, literally. This way I’m better prepared for future decisions and can tell garbage when I see it .. even though it is brand new, nicely packaged, and has a fancy name :) Now I often shudder by the look of some products and the thought of how they are going to be disposed of.

    It is a shame that we, as the consumers, are still not demanding products that are designed with their full life circle in mind, including disposal. We have to finally start thinking about how to prevent scenes like these:
