A Couple of Must-Read Links

Finally, in the midst of holiday preparations, I have had a chance to head over to La Vida Locavore, and Jill has posted some news that I must share with all of you. First of all, as my hubby and I have hypothesized, there has finally been a link discovered between HFCS and diabetes in ...

See Food, Inc. Now. Please.

If you haven’t already seen it, Food, Inc. is a movie you really should see. As you might guess, much of the information in the movie wasn’t new to me. But the bits that were new, were worth the rental fee. It’s not for the young ones, so watch it after the kids are in ...

I Can’t Believe I Stopped Eating Butter!

Aaaannd…we’re back. I have an experiment for you to try at home. I tried it and was quite surprised at the result. We have been consumers of a particular “buttery spread” that gives the impression of being real food because it is “made with yogurt”. It’s also made with partially hydrogenated soybean oil, mono and ...
