It’s never possible to make all the right choices when it comes to food. Sometimes we think we’ve got the basics down, but then we realize that the labels on our food aren’t as straightforward as we thought. The low-fat diets we thought were getting us closer to happily healthy? Turns out, sugar might be the bigger and unseen culprit. But in better news, maybe we can throw out the no-pasta rule: there’s a local, slow-food (not to mention gourmet and tasty) option now from two Italians in California. And when it comes to protecting our skin from the sun, there’s a (tasty) extra step we can take without that sunscreen smell. And, the city of New York is joining us this week and expanding its recycling programs to include compositing initiatives. There–feeling better already.
