Biff America: Eat, drink, and be miserable 14.1.2010 Vail Colorado: News
There are two types of people in this world... Actually, that is not true; there are way more than two types of people in the world. There are two types of people who live in my house. There is the type of person that insists on smothering a tasty hamburger with kale-and then there is me. When I was single I used to eat a lot of hamburgers; now, not so much. I still get to eat them occasionally; but I no longer go to the store and just buy what is closest to the door. Now I drive to the other side of the county to buy "organic, range fed, hormone free, beef from cows that were cuddled daily" hamburger. This hamburger is much more expensive then the stuff I used to buy but tastes just as good. Though I am not a vegetarian, to avoid ...

In praise of… Michael Pollan 11.1.2010 Guardian: Comment is Free
Few Britons know how to cook with high-­fructose corn syrup , a sweetener made by ­adding enzymes to corn starch. In the US, however, it is ubiquitous in processed food. Just as American farmers feed their cattle corn because the government subsidises it – and must dose cows so their stomachs can tolerate grain rather than grass – the US population is hooked on corn, for the worst of reasons. It was Michael Pollan who chronicled how this unhealthy state of affairs had come about in his 2006 book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, and how the industrialisation of agriculture has denuded soil, poisoned animals and helped to bring about the rise in type 2 diabetes. Not since Rachel Carson's The Silent Spring has a writer joined up agriculture, food and health ...

Go vegan, compost and buy nothing new for a year, Vail 10.1.2010 Vail Colorado: News
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado - Heading into the second week of January, statistics show you've either made and broken your New Year's resolutions, or you haven't set goals at all for 2010. Owning a business in a resort community, it takes me a couple of weeks to wind down from the holiday rush before attempting to set intentions for the upcoming year, but each year, I still resolve to make changes. I clip away at my keyboard forming a huge list of self-improvements, most of which never make the leap from my computer screen. I'm not alone. Ninety seven percent of New Year's resolutions are never fulfilled, despite the fact that 45 percent of us continue to set new goals each year. So what, right? Just the exercise of listing your ambitions is a good ...
