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.

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

Before we move on to this week’s wisdom I want to share a few live events I’ll be speaking at over the next few weeks:

PREVENTION R3 SUMMIT, Oct 17-18

I’m thrilled to be coming to Austin, TX to speak at the Prevention R3 Summit on Oct 17-18. It will be a star-studded affair including an exclusive screening of the documentary, Resistance. If you’d like to attend, please use the code R3SPKR for $10 off your ticket.

BRAND CAMP SUMMIT, Oct 21

On Oct 21 I’ll be in Detroit for Brand Camp Summit, where brands, entrepreneurship and tech intersect. Brand Camp is a really special event, and this year’s theme is “Making Tech for All People.” This will be a rare opportunity to hear me talk about how I built Summer Tomato into one of the most respected food and health brands online. I’ll be dishing all my secrets about how to make things like vegetables, walking and self-control seem uncharacteristically sexy. I hope to meet you there.

HACKING HAPPINESS, Nov 14

In November I’ll be heading to London to speak about how to make life awesome through food at Hacking Happiness, a summit on human potential, performance and well-being. This is pretty much as foodist as you can get. I’d love to meet all you foodists across the pond, so please come and say hello.

And now on to the link love….

This week your house has pheromones, scientists defend saturated fat, and how to troubleshoot digestive issues.
