I Used An App To Buy Only Ethical Food. It Was Really Hard.
As I walked up to the banana pileup, I knew I was in trouble. Sure, those things are an excellent (and affordable) healthy snack, but they are almost universally sourced from producers with serious ethical issues. Yet I still wanted them. What would Michael Pollan do?! Sheepishly, I scanned the banana barcode using HowGood, a free app intended to help shoppers make more ethical food purchases. I’d been using the app all week to try to make all the “right” choices at the grocery store. The app revealed, unsurprisingly, that the bananas did not meet HowGood’s sustainability standards, but there were n...

These Lesbian Farmers Aren't Here To Take Over America. They Want To Grow It.
Apparently, it’s news to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh that lesbian-identified farmers exist. And he believes they are a threat to rural America. On an episode of his show last month, Limbaugh alarmingly quoted from a story from the conservative website The Washington Free Beacon, which trumpeted “Feds Holding Summits for Lesbian Farmers.” The headline referenced the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s partnership with the National Center for Lesbian Rights on a LGBT-focused #RuralPride initiative and LGBT Rural Summit held in Des Moines. “What they’re trying to do is convince ...

Ask JJ: How To Think Outside The Cereal Box?
Ask JJ: Do you have any healthy breakfast ideas for my kids? They want Pop-Tarts and Frosted Flakes, but I know we need to do better. Everyone's heard that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day," but the wrong breakfast can do more harm than good. Typical go-to breakfast choices for the younger crowd include cereal, waffles, pancakes, and muffins. And while all those foods might be convenient, they also guarantee a mid-morning blood sugar crash that will leave your kids restless, cranky, and unable to concentrate. By lunchtime, they'll have a hard time staying awake, much less learning long division! You're ...

Because I'm a dietitian, people assume that every meal and snack my family eats features all food groups and looks Pinterest-perfect.

And while I strive to feed my family as many fresh, whole foods as possible, I'm also working with a food budget. So what does that mean in the real world? Here's what the lead-in to the weekend typically looks like for my family -- myself, my husband, and my two boys, ages 12 and 8 -- the good, the not-so-good and everything in between.

Six Astronauts Spend a Year on Mars — in Hawaii
There’s no such thing as raspberries on Mars. That’s not likely to be a problem for you unless, a) you really like raspberries, and b) you just spent a year on Mars. Which brings us to Christiane Heinicke. Heinicke did just return from Mars, on Aug. 28, along with her five crewmates, and all of them were immediately given a chance for a quick snack of their first fresh fruits and vegetables in a year before having to meet the press. Heinicke grabbed as many of the raspberries as she could — the better part of a supermarket-sized container — and worked happily through them during the question and ans...
