This week’s featured blog is snack-girl.com I actually got acquainted with Snack girl when I started to follow her on Twitter. Whenever a snack looked tasty to me, I checked into her web site. I have quite a collection of healthy recipes and snack advice from Snack girl. Here’s what she says about why she got into healthy snack blogging.
“Lisa Cain, Ph.D., is an avid snacker, foodie, published author, and mother of 2. An evolutionary biologist by training, she has become obsessed with how food contributes to our overall health.
For example, she is fascinated with the fact that Americans in the 1950’s weighed on average MUCH less than they do now. Obviously the root cause of the epidemic is what we eat, and she wants to help people make better decisions about what they eat.
She believes that the study of nutrition is overrated and that we should eat as our ancestors did. Since our ancestors didn’t have convenience stores and Starbucks, she decided to write about snacks to help people understand how to decipher food marketing messages.
She is also a big proponent of food that doesn’t have any packaging at all.”
