And now, a moment of tough love. I'm not gonna lie - this is more for me than it is for you, dear reader, because I have a bad habit of running back to foods that are laden with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and usually don't realize what I'm doing to myself until I'm [...]

I have a bit of a penchant for talking about food myths. Mainly because, well, a lot of what our families have learned over the years about our relationships with food has come from... well, commercials. And logically, what company is going to pay millions of dollars for a little ad that will turn people [...]

Why Your Burger Never Looks Like The One On TV

While I haven't had a burger in about a decade, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the occasional juicy thick meaty monster something-or-other on the TV screen didn't make me a little tempted. I don't feel so bad now, especially since it's - apparently - raw burger and built with toothpicks and sad [...]

Here's an interesting little tidbit I picked up from a Weekly Spark article about misconceptions that we have about our bodies and doing right by them: So what makes 7 (or 8 or 9) p.m. a magical cutoff time anyway? The original idea was that people should stop eating about 3 hours before bed, using [...]

I know you've seen it. You hit the frozen foods section at the grocery store, and you pass the waffles. You're thinking "Man, I could eat these for a quick breakfast in the morning." You skim the freezer, and it catches your eye. "Blueberry Waffles -- Made With REAL BLUEBERRIES!" I don't know about you, [...]

I really, really, reeeeeally wanted to write about Jamie Oliver's new show "Food Revolution," but something much more compelling came across my desk. Thanks to Ink for sending it over. We're all familiar with my disdain for high fructose corn syrup, right? I mean, the stuff's pretty awful. If you'd like a not-so-quick rundown, check [...]

Dear reader, there are very few things that annoy me. Why? Because I feel like in my twenty-something years on this earth... I've seen everything. That's sarcasm, by the way. But back to the matter at hand. There are very few things that annoy me. Why? Because most things don't affect me, and the things [...]
