Made a speedy breakfast with @akhilg2002 of mushrooms topped with poached eggs and homegrown basil (yes the basil is still alive!). Not perfect, but these eggs turned out better than before. I trie...
  • JenniferEmilson Yes- while you are waiting for your water to boil, and then drop to a moderate summer, crack your egg onto a small sieve (like you light use for tea) set over a cup. Let it drain all the loose bits...
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Oh wow I was stirring like crazy! I'll try this next time. Thanks!
  • marynfulton2 Add a little vinegar to your water! It helps the egg stay together as well 😊

  • DietID_TeamDietitians Great question! I usually bring it up as a part of explaining the menu including where the veggies came from, so it's not a political statement but rather just a statement of fact. Sometimes I...
  • tinabeans Great points all around @Rachna! Usually i just bring food to the table and let all have at it! But marking the start of the meal in a more intentional way may be in order :)
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yea but @akhilg2002 would know if I sound preachy... I might! :/

Senate bill would block mandatory labeling of GMOs
4yr bigstory.ap.org
I'm still not sure what I think on GMO and labeling. Im pro-labels in general but not positive if GMO labels do anything besides give insinuations on GMO products that are uncertain. Any thoughts?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians The question of "certainty" is it's own issue because a ton of new research has come out on the topic, so I won't comment on that. But as far as labels go, it's really about knowing what's in your...
  • etsummer I do agree with @Rachna...why not label? it's giving consumers a chance to be more informed and responsible eaters, and it's their job to do that research to decide if it's something they want to...

Who is going to lead food policy?

Resounding agreement at @foodbizschool panel that there is NO food policy happening in Washington. Question on how we'll put it on the agenda.
  • tinabeans What happened to Michelle Obama's initiatives?

  • mirasingh Yea I saw something a little while ago that it turned into an exercise campaign instead of a food thing. Seemed strange

Mine is whatever veggies are in the fridge + salt + olive oil + heat. Or toss raw veg in some kind of sauce. Yay sides for dinner!
  • lauren Funny you say that, I *just* ate a giant bowl of roasted kale sprouts for dinner!
  • marynfulton2 Mine is some kind of stir-fry. Leftover grain, tofu/chickpea/egg, whatever veggies are in the fridge, and rice vinegar, tamari, ginger, and sriracha (all staples in my fridge) topped with cashews,...
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Best fast dinner - sautéed edamame, greens, and garlic topped with a pouched egg, hot sauce, and hummus or avocado.
