While doing some research this morning, I came across this excellent report on food claims and labeling by the Center For Science in the Public Interest. It’s definitely worth a skim – at least the first handful of pages (FYI, link is a PDF!)
But the part that I was most excited about was a revised Nutrition Facts panel!! Look awesome these proposed changes would be!! SO much more user friendly! [It’s a little fuzzy but that’s how the PDF was 🙁 ] The report says that the FDA is moving forward on doing a revision in the near[er] future and testing new labels on consumers.
Guys, I took down the Nutrition Facts label image in fear of breaking some kind of copyright. But you can find them on page 7 of the above PDF 🙂
In other news, Kodiak is running low on the raspberry syrup that comes with the two boxes, so the Open Sky freebie has been changed to their Mountainberry flavor! I’m curious to give that one a try myself!
And lastly, reader Hilary sent me this Runner’s World article on eating real food to fuel workouts. I couldnt’ agree more
Lunch today is awesome and packed with nutrients and volumnious, fiberous produce!
A rainbow of veggies. If you have trouble getting veggies into your lunch, fall back on plain slices. It’s what I do when I’m in a hurry. And guess what? I kind of LIKE them plain now. It would be more fun with hummus or peanut butter or something, but sometimes plain is just easier.
That sneaky grapefruit from yesterday’s lunch that slipped my mouth yesterday!! Lots of nutrient-dense produce in today’s lunchbox 😉
This afternoon I plan on munching on a LaraBar and small tangelo as a snack while I drive up to Davidson (and probably sit in 2 hours of rush hour 🙁 )
I am so ready to enjoy a warm spring evening with old friends!
