Ups and Downs in Food News (with exclamation points!)

I’m always reading blogs and news. I’ll get general headlines from Google News and Yahoo! News and then I read/skim blogs on my Google Reader (here’s a tutorial on how to set it up). Watching the news on the TV is too depressing. Do I want to hear about the latest violent crimes one after another? No. I can’t do anything about that except worry. Do they ever cover food? Only sometimes. I want real news that matters to me. Real journalism. I don’t just want a new recipe. I want actual food news: the good, the bad, and the ugly… and I can find that on the internet!

Ups and downs:
(Up = good news or an action item)
(Down = bad news all around)

School food news

Sugar

Food Dyes

Things you can do

Random

It’s like riding a rollercoaster of information. I think I have whiplash.

    I blogged about the sugar article last week-it really makes you think about your sugar consumption! we eliminated hfcs from our house last year, but I still use a lot of cane sugar in baking and cooking. I'm really going to work on cutting this down!

    GMOs are very scary, and I still can't believe labeling is not required. I appreciate what Michelle Obama is doing for healthy food awareness, but when her husband and his staff do nothing to regulate gmo's, and in fact recently allowed alfalfa crops to become gmo, it's very discouraging.
    My kitchen is 99% gmo free, so it is possible to eliminate them from your diet, but you do have to do the research, and take the time to read labels etc. It's worth the effort though!
    Here's a good gmo free shopping guide

    (Down!) Are you drinking sugar? (What's Cooking With Kids) — Great visual, but also disturbing! is a good article, other than it pushes forward the myth that eating sugar is what causes diabetes.
