Weekend Reading


Spoonfed has a great post on calling kids "picky eaters." Which reminds me, please discuss the fruits and vegetables on the lunch menu and help our kids decide which ones to try.

Even frat houses want better food. The WSJ chronicles the end of tater tot casseroles.

Andy Bellatti joins me in being horrified at food manufacturers' tricks in his blog post lampooning the new "touch of fruit" Frosted Mini-Wheats. Read it for yourself or take my word for it and do not buy them.

There's a lot of new chatter about cooking with coconut oil - here and in this overview of various cooking oils.

Read up about the benefits of maple syrup and why you should avoid the imitators here -- to get ready for next weekend's Maple Syrup events.


The Times City Critic visits the new and improved NYC school lunch program. Take a look.


Interested in healthy cooking classes? Covering everything from healthy kids snacks to vegan cooking to raw, The Natural Gourmet Institute runs weekday classes and weekend seminars along with more extensive retreats.

You can sign up anytime for your 2011 CSA farm share -- get organic vegetables from the Golden Earthworm farm on Long Island this summer. Picking up your box each week is fun.
