Chow’s Guide to Fruits and Vegetables

Image source

The whole confusing and vague idea of eating enough "servings" has pretty much been scrapped, and now the powers that be (the USDA, CDC, Department of Health & Human Services) are talking cups. Yes, normal measuring cups—the kind you actually use in the kitchen. Someone who eats, on average, 2,000 calories a day needs about two cups of fruit and two and a half cups of vegetables per day, says Dr. Lilian Cheung, a lecturer in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. But individual needs will vary based on age, physical activity, and gender, so the easiest way to find out what’s right for you is to use the CDC’s online calculator.

GMO Foods and Unborn Babies

Image source

A new medical study on the impacts of genetically modified foods, shows that toxins from GM crops designed to strike down pests are actually showing up in the bloodstreams of women and unborn babies.

The new study, "Maternal and fetal exposure to pesticides associated to genetically modified foods in Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada" by Aziz Aris and Samuel Leblanc with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada, brings to light many of the fears that GMO food awareness groups and writers like our own April Scott, have been attempting to illuminate to the public.

The results of the study show that 93 per cent of blood samples taken from pregnant women and 80 percent of samples taken from umbilical cords, tested positive for traces of the chemicals.

Trisse

Trisse co-founder and CEO Tyler York shared an interesting insight with me recently: VCs don’t invest in food. The food "industry" is simply too fragmented and difficult to tame—hence the reason I put "industry" in quotation marks, as if there’s only one. But that didn’t stop York and his co-founder Justin Pincar from starting a business that takes local food national. The site,Trisse.com, offers deals of 25% to 75% off of artisan foods like handmade pastries and chocolate, and today the site launches in beta.

Of course, artisan foods—and services that market artisan foods—are nothing new. Sites like Abe’s Market and Foodzie are fairly comprehensive online food marketplaces that give merchants a space to advertise their tasty wares, like handmade jam, sauces and seasonings, and desserts. The difference is that Trisse will not be an online marketplace, but a Groupon-like deal service for discovering great artisan foods that are vetted by the Trisse team for quality and taste.

Eating for a Marathon

-Eating Clif bars for a pre-race dinner (I forgot to bring food on my train ride up to Eugene)
-Only drinking 8 oz of water before the race when I should have had around 32 (I was afraid I’d get side stitches)
-A pre-race breakfast consisting of three pilfered* blueberry muffins of questionable freshness (and ingredient content) because I couldn’t find an open market that sold any oatmeal or pb & j fixin’s.
