Re: “Making a Case for Saturated Fats

In the 1960s, scientists at Harvard University were bribed by the sugar industry to produce counterfeit studies wrongly linking saturated fat with heart disease. Diabetes and obesity rates have since then quadrupled!

Switch back to full-fat dairy products such as butter and whole milk, instead of denurtured, tasteless and undatisfying products like margarine and semi-skimmed 'milk'. Margarine is basically poison and is GREY before it's dyed yellow! Use saturated fats for cooking as these are extremely heat stable - unlike toxic solvent-extracted 'vegetable oil' which creates cancer-causing aldehydes at high temperatures.

Re: “Cheers to Foodie Feats and Frenemies of 2016

Agreed. These meat and potatoes themed-articles make VT seem like a crusty relic, *not* a thought leader in food trends. In NYC, LA, PDX, Europe, and almost everywhere else, plant-based restaurants are trending up and up and up.

Re: “Stone Leaf Teahouse and the Art of Roasting

When Stone Leaf first opened I held my breath: the times were tough, economically speaking, and who (other than John Wetzel) would have thought that a tea shop would survive, let alone flourish. But flourish it has. I drink much more coffee than tea, but I love what Stone Leaf is and offers and visit whenever I can. Congratulations on the shop's success, Stone Leaf. And thanks SevenDays for the piece.

Re: “Vermont Inmates Take to the Kitchen With Farm-to-Prison Program

Why post such a nasty comment without doing any research? A simple Google search for "Vermont farm to seniors" will yield numerous results. This is a great way for our tax dollars to go back to our farmers.

Re: “Vermont Inmates Take to the Kitchen With Farm-to-Prison Program

Farm to prison? Most Americans have trouble paying for food each week and we are giving farm fresh food to prisoners now. I'm blessed enough to be able to afford whatever food I choose to eat, but there are many who are not as lucky. Also my wife is a nurse and have you ever saw what they feed the elderly? Try giving this out to the needy or homeless shelters. Don't benefit people that have committed crimes. This is one of many things wrong with today's society, it makes me sick.

Re: “Vermont Inmates Take to the Kitchen With Farm-to-Prison Program

" After getting picked up for a DUI in 2014, the man had spent the past two years awaiting trial." Seriously ? If true ,waiting 2 years for a DUI trial doesn't seem right . If he had plead guilty he would most likely have been out long ago .

Re: “Vermont Creamery's Non-GMO Cheese Hits the Market

If the cows are fed GMO-containing grain, then, yes, their milk, therefore their cheese, has been tainted with gmo

Go green concept will bring a suitable change in our community. Under this concept, we may utilize the recycling methods, environmental safety concerns, reduce pollution, and many other awareness programs. From here in this article, we learn some basic things about go green concept and eco-friendly. Thanks for such a wonderful article.

Re: “Herbalists Explore Plants and Wellness

Thank you for writing about herbalism in Vermont. However, you are mistaken when you stated that there is no relation between the plant and the marshmallow confection. This confection is the modern version of a medicinal confection made from Althaea officinalis, the marshmallow plant.

Re: “Pro Tips on Pulling Off Thanksgiving Dinner

Hi Barbara,

That was exactly the point! I was 20-years-old when I decided to make that "really special" meal for my family -- who didn't have the money to go out to restaurants -- but I didn't yet know how to make pasta dough properly, and boy did I ruin it.

That was 19 years ago. In the intervening years, I realized that it was better to make less fancy stuff, and to be more casual about it, so that dinner would be on the table on time. Last year, I forget about the turkey because we were playing board games, and it was a little dry. No big deal! But having a good menu plan and good tools makes it easier to have a delicious meal, *and* have fun.

Not sure which pieces you've read, but we try to mix up serious reportage with first-person stuff, so I write a mix of both.

Re: “Pro Tips on Pulling Off Thanksgiving Dinner

As a corollary to the final tip, I would suggest, "Avoid making holiday gatherings all about yourself" (unfortunately, from what I have read of Ms. Podhaizer's other contributions to this paper, this lesson has yet to be learned). If I were expected to indulge the controlling behavior outlined here, I expect that I would be hiding in the basement with the ex.

Re: “Burlington's New Foam Brewers Go With the Flow

This whole brew craze has become a bit banal to me... I mean... I'm happy for these kids and their venture... I wish them luck... but it sounds like it's been created or sustained with family money. How do they make money to live? I mean are they selling enough of this stuff to pay off the loan, the rent, the energy costs, the upscale refit of the space. I mean I am sure they are drawing paychecks from the business which will keep them in mustache wax and ironic T-shirts for the short term... and I know the markup on booze is big... but until they scale up?... in an ever increasingly competitive market can any of these places be viable?... or does the Burlington populace really drink that much?

Re: “What Works, and Doesn't, About Farmers Markets?

Very interesting article! Although I admit I skimmed it for now as I am set up selling my Happy Bird Poultry Farm chicken at the Milton Farmers Market amidst a bunch of other farmers, growers and bakers! It's not a big market like the Burlington but it offers a diverse variety of local flavors! We are here beside Hannaford on Rte 7 from 4-7 every Thursday!
