Snowmageddon?  Snowpacolypse?  How's winter in your neck of the woods?

Last week snow, this week cold!

Babies and Peanuts, et al.

Breaking news today...and it's not fake news, for once.

Fox News: "Giving peanut-based foods to babies early prevents allergies"

USA Today: "Peanut allergy: Everything they told you was wrong."

The Washington Post: "New NIH guidelines on infants and peanuts may contradict everything you’ve heard before."

Time: "How to prevent peanut allergies" 

The Scientist: "Allergen-Exposure strategy can prevent peanut allergy"

2017...Eat Less, Fish More!

Another year has gone. I can't wait to see what 2017 brings us. 2016 was a great year for me. I finished my master's degree, published a book, and stayed healthy. Here's my list of new year's resolutions. Please share yours in the comments.

1. No Fudgsicles

Last year I kind of let myself get carried away on Fudgsicles. It says "no sugar" right in the label, these must be OK. Right? Hmmm...Lots of weird stuff in the ingredients:

Nonfat Milk, Maltodextrin, Sorbitol, Polydextrose, Cocoa Processed With Alkali, Whey, Palm Oil, Tricalcium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel, Mono And Diglycerides, Cellulose, Gum, Malted Barley Extract, Salt, Guar Gum, Aspartame,* Polysorbate 80, Acesulfame, Potassium, Polysorbate 65, Citric Acid, Carrageenan, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Locust Bean Gum, Caramel Color

...and a warning: CONTAINS PHENYLALANINE. But no sugar!
