I also share links on Twitter @summertomato and the Summer Tomato Facebook page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

  • How the FDA Manipulates the Media <<The use of close-hold embargoes by government and scientific institutions is disturbing, as it has the effect of turning news reporting into advertising for these agencies. Hopefully the news organizations start to take the high road here. (Scientific American)
  • Plenty to Lose in Discussion of Weight and Self-Esteem <<Ever wonder how to talk to someone you care about about their health? Be very careful, you’re walking a fine line. (NY Times)
  • Developing a More Flexible Mind <<Excellent advice. If you don’t know the concept of being mentally flexible, definitely give this a read. (Zen Habits)
  • Donald Trump Doesn’t Understand Food <<Good summary of how both US presidential candidates stand on food issues. Neither is particularly strong in this regard, but Trump is far worse. Food regulation is incredibly important, as we’ve repeatedly seen that Big Food is incapable of regulating itself. (The Atlantic)
  • Activity Trackers May Undermine Weight Loss Efforts <<Long-term use of activity trackers appear to be linked to decreased physical activity in people trying to lose weight. More research should be done on why this is, but I would guess that if the data is perceived as a form of judgment (i.e. I’ve failed) rather than a data point (i.e. I didn’t hit my target today) it could be very demotivating. What are your thoughts? (NY Times)
  • Do Blood Glucose Levels Affect Hunger and Satiety? <<If you’re still married to the idea that carbs are bad because they make you want to eat more you may want to read this. (Whole Health Source)
  • Does Sparkling Water Have a Downside? <<Not really, although personally I avoid water in cans and plastic bottles because of BPA. (NY Times)
  • How to Clean and Maintain Cast Iron <<Soap is allowed! Woo hoo! (Serious Eats)
  • Mouse Diet Studies Aren’t Conclusive For Mice Let Alone People <<Biology is complex and you need to be very careful in how you interpret studies making bold claims. (Weighty Matters)
  • Thai chicken laksa <<One of the tastiest sounding recipes I’ve come across in awhile. (Jamie Oliver)

Pizza, GF Influencers & the Celiac Community

Two quick notes regarding the title of this post: 1) It took me way to long to come up with it…and I still think it stinks. 2) The word “influencers” makes my skin crawl. Can we proceed now? Great. Today we are talking about the danger of some gluten-free influencers out there (I’ll focus on […]

What Recourse Do We Have When a Restaurant Lies to Us?

Maybe it’s just me…or perhaps it’s today’s political culture…but I just don’t find it difficult to tell the truth. More than that, I find it almost impossible to lie. Here’s an example: Dude, how old are you? I’m 43. Really? I’m 53. See? That first answer felt awful. Dude, are you happily married? Indeed! Dude, […]

Is this Celiac Awareness or Fear-Mongering?

I’m warning you ahead of time…this post may be a bit sloppy and all over the place (kinda like my sex life when I was younger) as I’m still trying to grapple with my thoughts behind it. Ok…here we go. As most of you probably know, May is Celiac Awareness Month and lots of bloggers […]

Need Your Help Passing the Gluten in Medicine Disclosure Act 2019

They say that common etiquette means not talking about sex, religion or politics. Hmmm…I’ve already talked about sex drive, if sperm is gluten free, and gluten-free sex for only $27. I’ve also discussed if you can pray your celiac away and if a church has the right to ban gluten-free hosts. Since we’ve already pretty […]

$100,000 Lawsuit for Getting Glutened? C’mon!

There is a Twitter account called Endless Screaming. Every time he or she tweets, it’s simply: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! That’s exactly my reaction to a fellow celiac suing a Las Vegas restaurant $100,000 for causing “permanent injury” after getting glutened. I’ll say it again: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Here’s the article. And here’s the Gluten Dude breakdown. A Los Angeles […]
