Friday Food News Round Up: Franken Food FunPosted: May 24, 2013
Mixed feed bag today folks. It has been a lively week for fraken food; let start and end with something cool.
Poultry protein derived from the left over bits of chicken processing may soon be finding its way into ice cream according to this article. I have heard of lard being a helpful ice cream fat, but that ingredient has a little more old world wholesomeness than the food industries bones and trimming protein enzyme extract. In any case I am sticking with coconut/cashew gelato for now.
2) Hey Ronald!
A nine year old girl strolled into a McDonald’s Conference the other day. Her Plea:
“It would be nice if you stopped trying to trick kids into wanting to eat your food all the time.”
It is not as impressive when you find out her mother is a nutrition blogger affiliated with Corporate Accountability International. Still, I agree.
The rebuttal by McDonalds cites the fact that Happy Meals all have the green apple option now. It is going to take more than some pre-sliced packaged fruit and caramel dipping sauce to convince me that child focused fast food advertising is ethical.
Lets not let 9 year olds do all the work. Join the movement near you against Monsanto this Saturday MAY 25. Help begin to unseat their seedy seed business. I would join but i will be working at a farmers market… so i guess I’m doing a little bit towards the effort regardless.
Here is the local lowdown for my Oakland Peeps
4) Vegan Horchada is Paleo, Paleo Horchata is Tasty
A quick vegan version for my favourite taco shop summer quencher. Horchata is a cinnamon loves creamy dream, a smooth edition to warm summer eve’s or iced for memorial day grill feasts. Ole!
I will try to find a dairy/refined sugar free Orange Bang! for next week…O wait here is one now
