Can vegans stomach the unpalatable truth about quinoa? | guardian.co.uk. “The quinoa trade is yet another troubling example of a damaging north-south exchange, with well-intentioned health and ethics-led consumers here unwittingly driving poverty there.” People in Bolivia and Peru where it is grown can no longer afford it, in Lima it is more expensive than chicken.

Let’s build a massive meta McDonald’s in Times Square at Kottke. I love the comparisons between fast food and molecular gastronomy. I remember hearing that Ferran Adria admired McDonald’s for their ability to make the exact same burger over and over again.

Cucumber and Hummus Cupcakes at Creative Kid Snacks. So many things can be made to look like cupcakes, but these I will actually be making for myself soon.

    The Quinoa story is completely false, BTW. We quinoa-lovers can rest easy. :)

    That chopped salad is to-die. Thanks, once again, for sharing great stuff!

    I don’t eat very much quinoa but it is so healthy that I’ve been considering adding more to my diet, so I’m interested in both the linked article and Erin’s counter link. Thank you both!

    I’m a little confused: NPR said, “the community can’t afford the grain anymore,” and the rebuttal is, “that’s not true, the farmers can totally eat it if they want.” farmers != community.

    No idea who is right.
