Food for Thought

Making sushi today for kids' snack.

Two very different items that fall under the “Food for Thought” title:

Item 1:

healthful 10 grain bread from Arnold:

whole wheat flour, unbleached enriched wheat flour[flour, malted barley flour, reduced iron, niacin, thiamin mononitrate (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid], water, wheat gluten, wheat fiber, yeast, sugar, cellulose fiber, inulin (chickory root fiber), polydextrose, sunflower seeds, wheat, rye, molasses, wheat protein isolate, salt, ground corn, cultured dextrose and maltodextrin (a natural preservative), raisin juice concentrate, buckweat, datem, monoglycerides, brown rice, oats, triticale, citric acid, barley, flaxseed, millet, calcium sulfate, grain vinegar, stevia extract (a natural sweetener), soy lecithin, calcium carbonate, nuts [walnuts and/or hazelnuts(filberts) and/or almonds], rice protein, whey, soy flour, nonfat milk.

Bread I baked today:

Bread flour, water, whole wheat flour, molasses, butter, salt, oats, yeast

I particularly like the cellulose fiber in the first list. Cardboard? Also cultured dextrose and maltodextrin being the natural preservatives.

Item 2:

On another front, I recently passed this article on to faculty at my school. I really liked it not just because it critiqued the massive marketing that is happening around the Lorax movie, but it also critiques the book, something I had not really done before. It jumped out at me again as I bought a new bottle of Seventh Gen dish soap.
