For the Love of Food

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

If you’ve been hanging around the blog lately you may have noticed something a little different. You might not have been aware of it at first, but after awhile you found yourself smiling a little at what a pleasant experience you’re having.

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve removed all banner ads from Summer Tomato. Woo hoo!

I’ve never been a fan of display ads (I’m sure you don’t love them either), but I thought they were a necessary evil to pay for the cost of running a popular website (if I told you how much I spent last year you’d choke on your organic green juice). But now that Foodist Kitchen is so popular I had the luxury of removing all 3rd party advertising––and it feels so good.

I do everything I can to make Summer Tomato your most trusted source for health advice andgive you the best experience possible. Removing banner ads was the final barrier to making sure that 100% of the things you see on Summer Tomato is foodist approved. As you can tell, I’m super happy about it 🙂

This week soybean oil is worse than saturated fat, the FDA takes on sugar, and a new taste sensation is identified.

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

    As far as the soybean oil study, can we really look at mice and apply it to humans? What are the potential limitations with these kinds of studies?

    • Darya Rose says:

      Obviously this study still needs to be replicated by another lab and validated in humans. A mechanism would be nice too. But it was very well done, well controlled, and actually tested something smart (the most likely suspects in processed food). We have learned a lot about human digestion and metabolic control from mice, and there’s no obvious reason not to think there may be some similarity in our species.

      • Jack says:

        One complaint the soybean oil/fructose study: I see no valid reason why they used fructose in isolation, as opposed to sucrose or free glucose + fructose.

    I tried the 10-20-30 workout today at the gym. During the first few minutes, I was feeling preeeee-ty cocky about how easy it was. I ended up panting and dripping with sweat. Nice variation on the normal intervals!
