For The Love of Food

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

Sorry this is a bit late today, I’m on the road and neither my flight nor my hotel last night had functional internet?! Starbucks, of all places, saved the day.

This week a new perspective on salt, new information on GMO foods and a brilliant strategy for getting drugs out of our meat.

Want to see all my favorite links? 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).

    One thing I didn’t understand about the no/low-fat dressing article–was there a control group with no dressing at all. Does fat added to vegetables enhance the availability of the “good stuff” we get from veggies. So, if I just put balsamic vinegar on my salad or broiled broccoli as opposed to olive oil, does the olive oil dressed vegetable give me the most nutrients from the veggies.

    I can get my head around the difference between non-fat bottled dressing and full fat bottled dressing (just looking at the ingredients, I seem to recall that there are usually more artificial ingredients in the low or non fat dressings), but does any fat really bring out the best in my veggies.

      Yes, you need the fat in there to make the fat soluble vitamins more bioavailable. Research has shown when certain vitamins and antioxidants are consumed with some fat around they are much more efficiently taken up in the bloodstream. Fat is good for you, just not the highly processed kinds.

    I think that “Salt, We Misjudged You” link may be broken. Just read it here:

    Great article! Thanks for the link. Must give “Why We Get Fat” a read soon.

    “Though not genetically modified (yet), all commercial bananas are genetically identical clones grown in monocultures.”
    Yet? Genetically identical clones are not gmo? What is YOUR definition of gmo?

    • Darya Rose says:

      To be GMO it has to have a transgene from another species. Otherwise it is just selective breeding.

      Also, this is a really old post and your quote is from a completely different post. What is your agenda, exactly?

What do you think?
