Food isn’t all about taste. It’s essential to smell a bay leaf, hear the snap of a celery stick and feel a peach’s fuzz.
So, what’s the biological foundation of the food and mood paradigm? The answer is found in the relationship between the brain and the gut microbiome.
A shopper’s guide to the labels on meat, dairy, and eggs.
EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION takes audiences on a cinematic journey around the world, from the depths of the Amazon rainforests to the Taiwanese Mountains, the Mongolian desert, the US Dust Bowl, the Norwegian Fjords and the Scottish coastlines, telling the story of our planet through shocking testimonials, poignant accounts from indigenous people most affected by our ever-changing planet, globally renowned figures and leading scientists.
Business owners insist that robots will take over work that is dirty, dangerous, or just dull, enabling humans to focus on other tasks.
It sounds good, the idea of eating “naturally.” There are natural food stores and natural sweeteners. You can buy all-natural grapefruit juice. You can buy “natural artisan flavor birthday cake flavoring.” Instructions for following a paleo diet advise that you eat only natural foods, like your pre-agricultural ancestors. “Natural” recalls a prelapsarian past, the way food was supposed to be before we messed it up with industry.
But defining “natural” food has proved difficult.
Hippocrates’s maxim is likely a misquotation — one that many people have a vested interest in continuing to promote. All too often, the phrase is used by unscrupulous people to sell nutritional nonsense like the latest detox or cleanse. It is also frequently used by reputable people trying to promote the importance of healthy diets, but they should shelve it so they aren’t confused with the quacks.
What’s wrong with thinking about food as medicine? It does a disservice to both food and medicine.
In the United States, 20% of the federal budget goes to the military, and over 30% of edible food goes to waste. Operating in the ether between two statistics is Food Not Bombs, giving away food in the hope of refashioning the world as a place with healthier priorities and eating habits.
Multinational food, soda and alcohol giants are employing the same tactics that made tobacco a pariah in the global public health conversation nearly two decades ago.
All we want when we look at a food label is to know what's in the stuff we're considering putting in our bodies. Because a lot of companies know they'll move more product if they fudge the facts, only strong disincentives to their doing so will stop them.
Before you read another health study, check who's funding the research. Food companies have a bad history of funding biased research to support their products. We took a look at a few egregious recent examples.
Instead of focusing on weight loss and calories, I decided to zero in on health and habits and why it's so hard to change them, even though most of us know the basics of eating right. I identified the five biggest obstacles to eating sensibly — information overload , money , time , external influences , and inertia — and put myself through a series of experiments to confront one issue each week.
It’s not just a lack of grocery stores that’s making us fat. It’s an overabundance of fast food.
How food researchers know what we’ll eat next; eggs and whole milk are back, sorry, skim.
Every year, millions of Americans get sick from the things they eat and drink. But it's not always the foods you'd expect that poison people.
According to an estimate from the CDC, produce causes nearly half of all food-borne illnesses, while dairy and eggs cause 20 percent, meat and poultry are the culprits in only 22 percent of cases, and fish and shellfish just 6 percent.
In today’s market, it’s hard to think of a more dominant food and beverage trend than the decisive consumer shift toward healthier, better-for-you products. From start-ups to large-scale operations with established big-name brands, companies are formulating new products, and reformulating existing ones, to get a slice of the rapidly growing business.
But what’s less well known and somewhat surprising is how that same food ethic drifted over into the paranoid world of the far right, where no truth is self-evident and the apocalypse is always imminent. At the dark confluence of hippie and Hitler, you can buy a year’s supply of earth-friendly quinoa.
The organic food industry has outgrown the original regulations meant to protect it and its consumers. How 'organic is organic food' is even more important now than in the past.
Some foods have been promoted as “healthy” when they’re exactly the opposite.
It's simple: you've got to eat. What's not so simple for some of us is knowing when to say when. But because "when" is not the same for all of us, how should we approach the question of portion control, especially in a society that sometimes sends messages that under-eating is a virtue?
A new university in Italy aims to elevate gastronomy to an academic discipline—and put its students through a humbling workout.
A food-replacement product is getting a lot of buzz. But for all that might be gained by maximizing the efficiency of one's nutritional intake, so much more might be lost.
The China Study cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging. Additionally, he challenges the validity of these low-carb fad diets and issues a startling warning to their followers.
If, like me, you are a fan of high-fat foods like nuts or avocados, high-cholesterol foods like shrimp or eggs, coffee or an occasional alcoholic drink, the new guidelines provide some additional reassurance. They emphasize the need to focus on a health-promoting eating pattern “across the life span” that includes these and other foods, in moderation, while cutting down on added sugar.
On the other hand, the new guidelines can be confusing, containing what seems like conflicting messages and bowing, in some cases, to industry pressures, especially with regard to meats.
The retailer’s $14 billion bet isn’t just about the future of food. It’s about the future of commerce—especially for rich urban consumers.
We are what we eat, as they say, and popular dishes of the past are a reflection of the society that let them flourish. Though post-war years give us flashbacks of meatloafs shaped into igloos and way too many dishes based on some form of Jell-O product, it is also the era that let foreign cuisines flourish in North America. It’s when we first got introduced to Asian food, pizza and other favorites.
Ultimately, the existence of the organic, certified humane, and non-GMO fads can be considered insulting as long as labor is ignored. Or it can be inspiring: in only a few decades, so many types of ethical and environmental eating have found a foothold. It's a positive sign that people may come to care about fair treatment as much as good taste.
While it’s true that the world of food isn’t being disrupted overnight, millennials are certainly leading the change in the food revolution. From fast casual to farm-to-table, it seems as though every other month we hear about this generation finding something new to sink their teeth into. But there’s a bigger picture at play, and it’s one that’s not going away anytime soon. Here’s why...
