SWEDEN. THIS IS BENEATH THE DIGNITY OF CAKE
A product the industry calls "lean, finely textured meat" has been a fixture in the ground beef served in the free school lunch program and fast food hamburgers for years. McDonalds and other fast food restaurants have already stopped using it. Oh, and it is treated with ammonia to eliminate E.coli.
Lend the chocolate company money, they will pay your interest back in chocolate. EVERYBODY WINS.
A few days ago, saw someone ask for good lunch ideas on here.
Saw this-- some of the recipes have potential, though not sure about tuna-breath as a lunch strategy.
"In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, analyzing the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers found that agricultural giant Monsanto's GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats."
Monsanto terrifies me.
"If you get there and the Waffle House is closed?" FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate has said. "That's really bad. That's where you go to work."
From the article: "While lots of people have noted the general terribleness of restaurant sites, I haven't ever seen an explanation for why this industry's online presence is so singularly bruising. The rest of the Web long ago did away with auto-playing music, Flash buttons and menus, and elaborate intro pages, but restaurant sites seem stuck in 1999."
By Scott Korb. I tremendously like the tone of this piece: I don't think Korb wants to rag on vegans and vegetarians, but he does want to push people, particularly his students, to seriously consider how food and eating shapes their relationship to the world and their sense of their place within it. He writes: "Nowadays, where meat is concerned, we’re mainly asked by conscientious food writers simply to look at where our food comes from. It’s somewhat hard to fault anyone who looks at life on a factory farm, sees cows knee-deep in shit or chickens with their beaks snipped off, and then turns his back on meat forever. In my classroom, however, I want to ask something more. I’m not satisfied with simply understanding where our food comes from—especially if where most of it comes from today is so horrifying. It’s just as important that my students understand where they come from—or, that is, where we come from in our thoughts about ourselves and in our relations with the world around us." I also like that it is tagged with "give a damn."
"If we are working toward a society in which women are valued equally with men, it's not enough to champion what I (here in New York) call the "Hillary Clinton route": women accessing careers that have historically been the provenance of men. Of course, this needs to be done – there are glass ceilings to smash and equal wages to fight for aplenty – but we need to do the opposite, too: we need to champion what has traditionally been devalued as "women's work" and respect it for what it is – work. And valuable."
