what’s good around the web!

I caught this picture of Paul running the Stockholm Half Marathon yesterday: fast man, long shadow.

What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I’ll be posting links to five nutrition related articles, good recipes, and just general good reads. I hope you enjoy it! If you’ve got at article or recipe you’d like to see featured, please email me.

1. The internet has been in a twitch lately over this study by Stanford University which suggested that organic produce is no more nutritious than conventionally produced, although less expensive conventional produce does have higher levels of pesticide residues. Here is a roundtable debate on the issue, and another smart response (both worth reading). What do you think?

2. The New York City Board of Health approves the ban on the sale of large sugary drinks. Woah. It’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds.

3. The bacteria in your stomach may determine how much energy you get out of your diet, according to this recent study out of North Carolina.

4. Want to know why chocolate makes you happy? Researchers uncover why some food flavours affect disposition. 

5. Diet information is confusing, I know. Low carb or low fat: do calories count?
