“I really think there are more women drinking craft beer because it’s not just bland and tasteless, and it goes with food better than wine goes with food,” said Anita Johnson, owner of Great Fermentations, the area’s largest home-brewing supply store. “Any female who says they don’t like beer, it’s a challenge to me.”
“It’s interesting to me that the same consumer that will go to 7-11 and buy a bottle of Fiji Water for five dollars will go crazy and complain about a cup of coffee,” says Geoff Watts, Intelligentsia’s vice president and green (unroasted, that is) coffee buyer. “This is a meticulously grown agricultural product from halfway around the world that was hand-harvested, hand-picked, and roasted and brewed…”
He said cellulose is common in processed foods, often labeled as reduced-fat or high-fiber – products like breads, pancakes, crackers, pizza crusts, muffins, scrambled eggs, mashed potato mixes, and even cheesecake.

The goal this week is to build a better Big Mac by taking that great concept and fixing up everything that’s wrong with it. There’s certainly no shortage of Big Mac clones on the internet, but, in my humble opinion, every single one I’ve seen misses the boat, opting for larger patties or other such “improvements” that only really serve to throw off the proportions of a perfectly conceived sandwich.
Apparently concern for one’s health has become so mainstream that gratuitous disregard for it has become hip and counter-cultural.
Please note: I am not simply making the observation that many Americans have disgustingly unhealthy eating habits. Rather, I find that such diets have become almost chic. Last weekend, for example, I was with some friends at a pub (which shall remain nameless) whose menu included such delicacies as Spam Bites (deep-fried spam and cream cheese), Deep-Fried Pickles and Pie Bites (deep-fried bits of pie).

Bacon seems to be the icon of this counter-revolution.
If you want to lose weight, a good plan is to subsist entirely on rice, beans, vegetables, and whatever meat goes on sale.

Eating five small meals instead of three big ones has been really helpful, but also really hard to stick with since I’m at work all day.
Late last month, a U.S. District Court judge dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she’d been buying Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries cereal for four years under the assumption that crunchberries are a real berry. “The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, alleged that she had only recently learned to her dismay that said ‘berries’ were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls.”
MACA’s Executive Director Bonnie McCarvel sent a long letter to Michelle Obama reminding her of the importance of technology in modern farming, then publicized the letter via an email where she noted, “While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made Janet Braun, CropLife Ambassador Coordinator and I shudder.”
