The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has found residual amounts of weed killer in 30% of the foods they tested. The story is here on HuffingtonPost.com.
From this NY Times article: “But when it comes to the burden of disease,” he added, “some of the leading risk factors are not high intake of unhealthy foods, but low intake of healthy foods.”
As one example, I read in a book about food-related diseases that red meat isn’t necessarily bad for people, it’s just that people in the U.S. tend to eat red meat without eating anything healthy along with it.
Here’s a good list of well-known and under-the-radar restaurants in Boulder, Colorado.
And if you don’t know Boulder, here’s one quote from the article: “Boulder is one of America’s ‘Foodiest’ towns with a roster of hot eateries. A February New York Times feature noted that ‘among foodies, it is also known as the place where new companies are challenging the old guard in the food business.’”
As someone who is dealing with something like Mastocytosis or histamine intolerance, this book, “My Crazy Life: A Humorous Guide to Understanding Mast Cell Disorders,” strikes a chord with me.

“95% of soy products in the United States are genetically modified, and do not have to be labeled as such.”
So I go to the grocery store yesterday, buy some grapes, and think I’m being all healthy as I eat them.

The Denali Brewing Company in Talkeetna, Alaska had one of the original large outdoor patio/deck dining areas. This is an old photo, probably from 2007 to 2010, and I think their patio seating area is larger than this now.
Simon Fletcher was elected to the Denver Broncos Hall of Fame yesterday. He was just on a local radio station, and sounds like a really nice guy. He has a BBQ restaurant in Fort Morgan, Colorado named Grid-Iron Grill & BBQ, and I’m going to have to take a trip there on day to check it out.
