Around The Web

I’ve had some really yummy eats this week that I am excited to blog, but first I wanted to share some of the things I’ve been loving on other people’s web sites…

food for thought

I’m sure you’ve all heard the buzz about Science Babe’s epic takedown of the Food Babe by now.  {article linked here}  In short, Food Babe has absolutely no medical, nutritional, or scientific background, and she, like the big names in anti-vaccination, preys on America’s recent history of sub-par STEM education and misuses the term “toxin” so egregiously it may actually be the newest, deadliest sin.  Zen & Spice did a great job of unpacking the Science Babe’s arguments from an RD’s perspective.  {article linked here}

Love & Zest talked about the value of foods beyond their nutrients.  Moderation is important because a brownie may not be “good for you,” but it can certainly be good for your soul.  {article linked here}

Green Mountain wrote their version of the “Five Foods You Should Never Eat” article.  I really hate the original articles – unnecessary dietary restrictions are unsustainable and unenjoyable and the titles are blatant clickbait – so it was nice to read June’s funny but reasonable spoof.  {article linked here}

Debbie Dietitian Dishes did another one of her great nutrient examinations, this time a look at carbohydrates – what they are, what they do, and what you need.  {article linked here}

food and nutrition funnies

Very few things are better than cupcakes, but these guys qualify –

And Poorly Drawn Lines has been killing it lately.

Have you been keeping up with the most recent Food Babe drama?  If this was your first time hearing of the Food Babe, when you went to check out her website did you feel like your head might actually explode with rage?
