From Chemical to Natural: How to Return to Eating Real Food by Reshma Adwar, DPT, HHC Physical TherapistHealth Maven Posted Thu 12 Jul 2012 4:36pm When I was a kid, I was obsessed with grape flavored candy. Jolly Ranchers, chewing gum, lollipops, you name it. But I rarely touched grapes! They just didn’t taste grape-y enough to my little palate which I had routinely bombarded with “grape flavored” foods. Unfortunately, we live in an era in which processed food is so ubiquitous, our ... Read on »

Weird Science, Weirder Food by IEatAsphalt Posted Fri 23 Jul 2010 6:22am I’ve never been a huge fan of the PB&J sandwich. Love peanut butter toast. But a PB&J just never did anything for me.
