Happy Friday…the 13th! I hope no black cats crossed your path (unless they rolled over on their backs so you could rub their bellies*) and you didn’t walk under any ladders. Here’s some nutrition reading for your enjoyment and enlightenment:
- First The New York Times, now Amazon: Amazon sets the table for it’s own meal delivery service. Hmmmm. Stay tuned next week for my review of the vegan meal delivery service Purple Carrot (we have one more meal to test, first).
- I had a patient say to me the other day, “I don’t trust anything the FDA says.” As evidence: Why the FDA is re-evaluating the ‘nutty’ definition of healthy food.
- Whole Foods’ scaled-down 365 store has robots, but no tattoo parlor. Gee, what a bummer. Apparently tattoos are not to Whole Foods as meal deliveries are to The New York Times.
- The downside of smoothies.
- Whole-wheat bread and other ‘healthy’ foods nutrition experts avoid.
- Scientists may finally know how carrots became orange.
- And, my latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times, 5 important things to know about food allergies.
* Never forget that “petting the tummy of a kitty is like frolicking in the back hair of angels.” Or is it?
Have a great weekend!
