For The Love of Food

Happy Halloween!

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

This week wheat genetics are exonerated, Omnivore’s Dilemma the movie!, and green coffee beans are actually, literally a scam.

Too busy to read them all? Try this awesome free speed reading app I just discovered to read at 300+ wpm. So neat!

Want to see all my favorite links? (There’s lots more). 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. (Yes, I took that picture of the pepper heart myself.)

    Hi Darya, you misattributed the recipe to Smitten Kitchen, it is actually from Sprouted Kitchen. Have a great weekend.

    Hi, Darya! Thanks for sharing all of the cool articles you find each week, particularly the one above about gluten.

    Eating bread doesn’t make me feel even a fraction as awesome as veggies do. But sometimes I find myself craving the taste of bread. It usually happens when I’m stressed, I had an intense workout, or if my eating schedule is off (e.g. ate lunch or dinner after a pretty long period of not eating). I also think that the craving probably stems from memories of eating some bread during my childhood and young adulthood years (e.g. peanut butter and bread has a nice appeal, no?).

    For a bit of contrast and background: I used to have an even stronger nostalgia around and love for cookies, but now my body and mind are strongly cognizant of how truly gross cookies make me feel, so I don’t really worry about my thoughts around that kind of food.

    In regards to bread, I don’t want to eat it every day. But on the occasions where I want some of my husband’s whole wheat tortilla, I would like to stop engaging in this useless argument in my head (should I eat it? I shouldn’t eat it? It’s bad for me?). I have much better things to do with my time. I’ve started thinking about how maybe I shouldn’t demonize food containing wheat such as bread and should consider consuming a small portion of that “rational indulgence” once or twice a week.

    While I understand that everyone’s healthstyle is unique and tailored to one’s need and circumstances, I’d like to learn a bit about how you approach eating food containing wheat such as bread. For example, do you eat bread only from certain bakeries? Do you only eat certain kinds of bread/crackers? Is there a specific portion of bread that you can consume without feeling tired, bloated, dehydrated, etc.? Or do you think about it more as a frequency (e.g. a certain number of times a week)?

    I’m always so grateful that you are out there, Darya, sharing your work, knowledge and personal experiences. Thank you, and Happy New Year!

      My advice is to let go of it. Unless bread is a big habit, it’s not going to make a big impact.

      Personally I eat bread/crackers whenever I want. Not very often, but maybe 1-2x per week. I don’t touch industrial bread, mainly because I don’t like the texture and chemically flavor. A good baguette or croissant will pull me in every time though.

What do you think?
