As we’re all aware by now, one of the worst environmental disasters in recorded history is underway in the Gulf.
As helpless as you may feel, you can do something right now by donating to a Gulf protection group like Save Our Gulf, the National Audubon Society, or the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
To get all of you involved this week, we’re replacing Tumblr’s usual ocean blue with a new heart-of-BP-executive black and letting you donate without leaving your Dashboard.
Donating will also unlock the Limited Edition Black Dashboard as an account preference.

I just donated.  Do it!

When Kids Eat What They Watch

gogosqueez:

By TARA PARKER-POPE

 

In Tuesday’s Personal Health column, Jane Brody writes about food advertising aimed at children.

Even though many companies have promised to stop advertising unhealthy foods to kids, parents still need to pay attention to the food marketing messages their kids are seeing, writes Ms. Brody.

What a company like Kellogg’s regards as an acceptable amount of sugar in a serving of breakfast cereal may not be what a nutrition-wise parent would choose. The cutoff adopted by Kellogg’s is 12 grams (3 teaspoons of sugar), which would keep them from promoting Cocoa Krispies (14 grams of sugar in a one-cup serving) to children. But Frosted Flakes, with 11 grams, could still be advertised in venues where children 6 and older will see them. (The company does not aim advertising at children under 6.)

Also, since each company sets its own guidelines, what applies to Kellogg’s might not apply to products made by General Mills or Post.

To learn more about food marketing to kids, read the full column, “Risks for Youths Who Eat What They Watch,” and then please join the discussion below.

Jamie was on Oprah promoting his food revolution last Friday.  In case you missed it, you can see the episode here. 

Personally, I’d like to say that I am proud of Jamie and everything he’s ever done with food but this is going the extra mile.  I’ve been a fan of his since 2003 and even though I haven’t been able to see all his shows or eat at his restaurants yet, I know a good thing when I see one.  And Jamie, is definitely a good thing. 

Nice one!

It’s Friday!  You know what that means!  Jamie’s Food Revolution and, consequently, a Jamie food post!
This is Evolution Carrot Salad (Jamie’s Food Rev, pg. 116)
Ingredients: 
4-5 large carrots
fresh cilantro
s&p
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
mixed and chopped nuts
clementines
To make:
Modified: It says to grate carrots but I used a potato peeler and shaved them in nice long strips.  It looks a lot more elegant this way and it’s easier to eat.
Finely chop in cilantro
Drizzle over with olive oil and lemon juice
Season with s&p
Mix in chopped nuts
Toss in small wedges of clementines
Toss everything together nicely and serve
This salad is really fresh and light.  It’s so easy to make, about 10 minutes altogether.  My family couldn’t get enough of it!  Enjoy!
