Food Technology

Here’s another TED video.  It’s amazing what they are doing, using different foods to taste like other foods.  This is much more than making a cake for April Fools’ Day which resembles a giant cheeseburger.  These two Chicago chefs are creating foods to satisfy customers’ tastes while considering chemistry, local resources, food waste, and people’s dietary needs.

Eat to Starve Cancer

I know I’ve reposted a lot this week.  I’d say that my arm is still sore from surgery, but I haven’t spent any less time on the keyboard.

I enjoy watching the various videos on TED and TED Ed.  The link below is for a presentation from cancer researcher William Li.  Instead of focusing on what not to eat, he focused on what to eat, as a means to combat cancer.  He does not get into specific foods until almost 13 minutes into the video.  At that point, you will see a long list of fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
