In Worries About Sweeteners, Think of All Sugars [nytimes blog]
1. It amazes me that in the midst of all the health care debate in the past few years, so little emphasis has been spent on changing the eating habits of Americans and holding the food industry responsible for part of the problem. Why do you think no one wants to talk about preventative medicine?
2. Today, I bought almond milk for the first time. I'm so excited that even our small grocery stores here in the Midwest are now carrying organics and formerly "specialty" items like agave nectar and almond milk! The nearest Whole Foods is three hours away and we have to settle for a tiny health foods store 45 minutes away. Have you noticed a change in your store?
3. Sugar over-consumption should be getting headlines. Changing the name of "high fructose corn syrup" really doesn't change anything. What ways are you cutting back on sugar consumption in your house?
