News Flash: People Are Weird About Food

This article about Hungry Girl and her whole schtick is just bizarre. It's one thing to like to eat crap, but to then feel the need to make lower fat and fake sugar versions of the crap is mind boggling. And that millions want to do the same? No wonder there's an obesity crisis.

This get fit together challenge is awesome--I wish I lived in the area or had a ride in order to join.

As for me, my great cooking experiment of the week is lavender simple syrup for iced tea. The iced tea is chilling; I have no idea how it will turn out. The recipe came from the August 2009 issue of Cooking Light--they also had a ginger cucumber simple syrup recipe and other variations.

Yeah, Hungry Girl is weird to me. I subscribed for a while but realized I thought everything she came up with was gross and fake.
