For The Love of Food

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

This week white wine has more sulfites than red, fonts affect your healthy behavior, and Kraft buys the blessings of dietitians.

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 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.)

  1. I am a Registered Dietitian and I have been sick of what the Association for Nutrition and Dietetics has been doing for a long time. Now, I am beyond sick. I am suspect that they might be eating the crappy foods from the companies with which they are associating. As we know, bad gut, bad digestion leads to poor choices because the brain doesn’t work. That’s my thought. I get plenty of fiber, feed my gut which feeds my brain which says the AND needs big time help.
    It might finally be time to give up my RD credential.

      It’s such a bummer. Clearly there has been a massive outrage with this, both from the public and dietitians like you who have a conscience. Hopefully AND will get the memo.

      I am a Registered Dietitian and appalled at what our professional organization has been doing for years. There are many outstanding RD’s that see beyond the smoke screen of ‘promoting children’s health” with funding from Kraft. It mirrors the relationship of big Pharmaceuticals and MD’s. But here is my rub. Just what population of consumers is the Academy trying to reach by promoting Kraft singles processed cheese? It deserves to be reduced to comedy central.

      • Sheila,
        I love that idea of Comedy Central. I believe that one of the news comics (Jon Stewart maybe) has already done a piece on this.

        I highly encourage thinking before doing. This may be a case of money leading the thinking.

        It’s good to know that there are other RDs who feel a similar way.

    America is controlled by this concept of what is food… Requires deep cultural change to shift focus… It is difficult to feed 300+ million people efficiently/ effectively…
