Wednesday Links

Do you eat tilapia? Do you know how it gets to your table? Some good info on factory fish farming.

My grocery store advertises that all its meat is 'natural'. Here's some clarification about what that means.

Speaking of my grocery store (Hiller's, if you're wondering), they sell a lot of British food, including candy bars. Apparently I've been missing out on the Ripple.

Some insight into why we crave junk food instead of healthy fruits and vegetables.

Mark Bittman's thoughts on new food marketing guidelines for kids. They sound great, but why won't they take effect for another five years??

It's tough being a kid these days. And a lack of access to healthy foods isn't helping.

Are you eating enough beans? According to the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans, we should be eating 1 1/2 cups a week. Sounds like a good reason to try that new black bean burger recipe.

Local News:

Looking for some local sweet treats? Ice cream, cookies, cakes, candies and more. And if you've never been to Ray's, it's definitely worth the trip.

Have you been to Rochester's Mind, Body & Spirits? I heard that they had closed for the winter, but now it looks like they're closed for good.
