The myth: Ingredient lists on food products are designed to inform consumers about what’s contained in the product. The reality: ingredients lists are used by food manufacturers to deceive consumers and trick them into thinking products are healthier (or better quality) than they really are. This article explores the most common deceptions used by food manufacturers to trick consumers with food ingredients lists. It also contains useful tips for helping consumers read such labels with the proper skepticism. (more…)

This is a great and easy way to use up cold brown rice leftovers for a hearty breakfast.

Blend cooked brown rice (hot or cold) with milk to make an oatmeal-consistency cereal. Heat in a saucepan and add some margarine, brown sugar, cinammon, rasins, bananas, or whatever topping you like, and serve with milk like oatmeal.

It tastes great cold as well. Chilled in small cups, sweetened with brown sugar and topped with berries, it may well even pass as a desert.

(News Reprint)Despite hate mail and ‘hunger strikes,’ a California chef sticks it out to help kids build a better relationship to food.
By Jennifer Wolcott | Correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor

Ann Cooper is not your typical lunch lady. She is more likely to wear a chef’s toque than a hairnet and her roasted chicken and potatoes bear no resemblance to nuggets and Tater Tots. The former chef, who spent much of her 30-plus-year career working in white-tablecloth restaurants and catering for celebrities, is now best known as the “Lunch Lady” in Berkeley, Calif., schools. In cafeterias there she has tossed out fried, frozen, and sugary foods and replaced them with fresh, seasonal, and mostly organic meals. (more…)

Robbed, I tell you, robbed! Of nutrients! (Editor: That’s a run on sentence) You’re golly right it is…We are being robbed of nutrients. (Editor: Better. Thanks.)

The purpose of this post in’t to deplete the white flour stocks from your cupboards. However, when feasible it’s a good idea to use 1/2-1/5 of the flour content  whole wheat depending on the food you’re making. In bread or biscuits I’ll generally use anywhere from 1/2 to 1/4, and in banana cakes maybe 1/4th. Using all whole wheta is dense and overbearing, but try to strike a lucky balance somewhere.

It’s a revolution for “Eat right!”

Yes, isn’t that a nice medicine?

In our village lives a sweet couple. He used to have very painful rheumatism, to the point that he couldn’t work any ore as a waiter.

She found a very nice book, about fruit and vegetables being your medicine. In there it said that when you have rheumatism, you should eat for 1 month every morning a big bowl of strawberries in an empty stomach, and then wait until Lunch before you eat anything else. He tried it, and it worked!

He had no more problems with it for years! Isn’t this a nice medicine?
