For The Love of Food

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

I’m pleased to inform you that I became an official blogger at The Huffington Post this week. My first article there was my interview with David Kessler, Learning to Eat Less: How Understanding Your Brain Can Make You Healthier. I hope to post many of my best articles there in the coming months, usually in the Living section.

Publication at Synapse has also resumed, though I have stepped down as the official science editor to focus on Summer Tomato and (ah hem) finish my lab work.

I’m also excited to announce the creation of the Summer Tomato monthly newsletter! The newsletter will include new content that is not posted here on the blog, and will feature Summer Tomato news, healthy eating tips and recipes. Newsletter subscribers will also have access to exclusive offers and discounts on future Summer Tomato material. Exciting, right?!


Don’t forget to confirm your subscription by clicking the link in the confirmation email.

If you are wary of entering your email address, rest assured I will never sell or exchange your information and you can unsubscribe anytime. Consider this my personal spam-free guarantee. The main purpose of the newsletter is to reward loyal readers with great tips to upgrade your healthstyle. Feel free to email me any time if you are unhappy with Summer Tomato material.

This week around the web there were some interesting articles about the cholesterol-heart disease hypothesis, which you may be surprised to hear is not particularly strong. These stories may renew your interest in my post last week on How to raise your HDL cholesterol. There are also a few pieces on the role of the brain in eating behavior, which I am becoming more and more interested in (shocking, I know).

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).

I also invite you to submit your own best food and health articles for next week’s For The Love of Food, just drop me an email using the contact form. I am also accepting guest posts at Summer Tomato for any awesome healthstyle tips and recipes you’d like to share.

This post is an open thread. Share your thoughts, writing (links welcome!) and delicious healthy meals of the week in the comments below.

  1. Congratulations, Darya, on the Huffington Post gig. You deserve a bigger audience.

    And thanks for mentioning my piece on the low-carb Mediterranean diet for people with recent onset type 2 diabetes. You’d think that in 2009 we’d have a better handle on what constitutes the ideal “diabetic diet,” but we don’t. It’s still hotly debated. I await full-text of a 2009 journal article comparing a vegetarian/vegan diet with the low-fat American Heart Association diet for people with type 2 diabetes. [I hear vegetarian won that fight.]

    Ditto on your comment about the homemade tomato soup. I’ll definitely be visiting Dirty Girl tomorrow….

    Congratulations on the HuffPo blog. That is fab; you definitely deserve it!

  4. Darya,
    Congratulations on the Huffington Post slot. Okay, I’ll admit this, I will come there to read what you write, but I’ll quickly hurry away. 🙂

      Ha ha, I don’t blame you. Luckily there won’t be anything published there that isn’t published here first. But hopefully with the bigger audience I can help more people upgrade their healthstyle 🙂

    Congrats, Summer Tomato is well on it’s way!

    Wow. So glad I found your blog. Some of your posts cover topics I spend hours talking about with friends! Especially interesting to me in this post are the cholesterol articles. As a young-ish woman who does eat healthily and exercises pretty regularly, I was surprised to learn that my “borderline high” cholesterol was of concern a few months ago. And it really got me wondering, is it a problem? I’m thinking not… but I hadn’t looked into it much. I look forward to reading those articles.

    Thanks for the info!
