For The Love of Food

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

Lots of interesting health and nutrition stories this week. I particularly love the piece about how exercise impacts cognitive performance, and the bits about the health benefits of grains. I’m not in the mood to focus on any BS this week, but if I did it would have certainly been the Monsanto court decision.

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 a complete reading list join me on the new Digg or StumbleUpon. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

  1. Hi Darya:

    Hope you don’t mind me tossing in one I thought was pretty amazing. Denise Minger demolishes The China Study over months of work using and crunching the original raw data.

    It’s an excellent lesson too on the rigors of real science and how to think about associations vs. causations. I know you’re big on sound science.

      Thx, looking forward to reading through it. Funny, I barely associate that study with the book since it was such a small part of it. I was most impressed with the work he presented on dairy and aflatoxin, which of course has almost zero relevance to us in Western society. But it was interesting data 🙂

    Onions and garlic and grains, oh my!

    Good, and good for you. Need to go make some Mujadarrah now!

  3. Anybody know where to get cacao nibs to go with the strawberries? Would commercial cocoa powder work just as well?


    • Darya Pino says:

      You definitely don’t want to use cocoa powder. A huge part of the wonderfulness of nibs is their crunch; they’re almost nutty. I have seen them at Whole Foods and artisan chocolate stores. You can probably find some online too. Protip: add them to chocolate chip cookies to turn them from awesome to mind-bogglingly awesome!
