Cream Brulee creamA little Creme Brulee to start the day.

Here are todays Food News stories.

New rust resilient soybean plant from Brazil about to be planted. From Reuters, an article discussing the plant that has been genetically modified to not allow rust. I wonder what it does in our bodies?

Healthy school lunches and the push back from kids. From Reuters, the battle between vegies and burgers continue. It is going the right direction but it is hard to compete when these kids eat fast food the rest of their day. Also, for fund raisers the schools still sale candy and serve junk food to earn money.

Americans are getting a  “C’ when it comes to Healthy lifestyles. From Healthday via Yahoo news, a report that was published in the June issue of American Medicine states that we as a country are not doing well living a healthy lifestyle.  “C” is average though so wouldn’t by its pure definition always be a “C” when you take everyone into account. Grading on a curve?

From the NYTIMES, Per Se and the world of Chef TK. Nice article from Alan Feuer about the fact that this very pricey restaurant in NYC is not missing a beat during this current economy.  Cool picture of the kitchen.

Also form the NYT, Planting a salsa garden. If you add some corn you could make your own chips. 

Blueberries in California. Yum. From the LATIMES, a nice article from David Karp about the recent boom of blueberries in the golden state. Some nice recipes too. 

Have a great day,
