Last weekend TEDxManhattan – Changing the way we eat happened. I could have followed along online, but I didn’t. Frankly, I don’t remember exactly what was going on here at home, but probably us being buried under the usual mounds of laundry and stacks of dirty dishes.
The conference looked awesome though and you can read all about the impact of the “good food” movement in this article from Time Magazine Foodies Can Eclipse (and Save) the Green Movement. Also the line-up of speakers from the event is listed on Civil Eats: Devouring Good Ideas at TEDxManhattan
- This week HuffPost had an interesting article and slideshow: America’s Best School Lunches
- In Chicago there’s a great school I just learned about Academy for Global Citizenship (AGC). Here’s a recent write up about their school lunches: Green, Healthy School Lunch — For Real
- I saw this and it made me chuckle and then nod: Asthma risk ‘linked to burgers’ (BBC) — Not sure if it’s “burgers” specifically, but instead processed foods. You know, after six months of consuming school lunch, I was diagnosed with mild asthma. Bizarro.
