Link Dump: Lunchtime Edition

  • The latest version of the ever-unhelpful USDA Dietary Guidelines (“just eat less!”) are out. Once again, they’re dumb. Once again, Guidelines demonize saturated fat and sodium, but seem to have no problem with carbs despite the USDA's own acknowledgment that Americans are stuffing themselves silly with the stuff.
  • So if you don't have enough change jangling around in your pocket, skip the vending machine and go get yourself some ice cream nachos and/or ice cream bread.
  • (On second thought, please don’t.)

Okay. I'm off to get me a big grass-fed burger patty topped with ham, bacon, and a fried egg.
