First time to use ground chia seeds as an egg replacement in baked goods. We made chocolate chip cookies and they are great! We are impressed! @garry1964 #goodfood #sf

From This is Colossal:

"Studio Wieki Somers collaborated with chocolatier Rafael Mutter to create Chocolate Mill. The piece was comprised of a giant cylindrical chocolate block that was carefully organized in 10 stacked layers, with flavored shapes used to create different geometric patterns. As a crank-turned blade similar to a cheese slicer grazed shavings off the top, the hidden layers were slowly revealed."

I would need a lot of self-control and patience because I would want to take a huge bite out of it and chew my way through.

Well these are 10x tastier than I expected! Warm out of the oven peanut butter oatmeal cookies. #nofilter #goodfood

A supermarket in France take a stand against the “good looking” fruits and vegetables used for supermarkets and helps to reduce food waste! The US needs to do this.

13 Nutrition Lies That Made The World Sick And Fat (excerpts)
1. Eggs Are Bad For Your Health
The truth is that despite being high in cholesterol, eggs don’t really raise the bad cholesterol in the blood. In fact, eggs primarily raise the “good” cholesterol (1, 2, 3, 4). 
Despite all the warnings about eggs in the past few decades, studies show that they are NOT associated with heart disease (5, 6, 7).
2. A Calorie is A Calorie
All calories are not created equal. Different foods go through different metabolic pathways and have varying effects on hunger, hormones and health.
3. Saturated Fat is Unhealthy
A massive study published in 2010 looked at data from a total of 21 studies that included 347,747 individuals. They found absolutely no association between saturated fat consumption and the risk of heart disease (19).
The truth is that saturated fat raises HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. It also changes the LDL cholesterol from small, dense LDL (very, very bad) to Large LDL, which is benign (22, 23, 24, 25, 26).
6. Coffee is Bad for You
Coffee drinkers:
Have up to a 67% lower risk of Type II diabetes (50, 51).
Are at a much lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (52, 53).
Have up to an 80% lower risk of liver diseases like cirrhosis (54, 55).
Caffeine also helps to mobilize fatty acids from the fat tissues, boost metabolism and increase exercise performance by an average of 11-12% (56, 57, 58).
7. Meat is Bad For You
While it is true that processed meat is associated with all sorts of diseases, the same is not true for unprocessed red meat. A massive review from 2010 that looked at data from 20 studies with a total of 1,218,380 individuals revealed that unprocessed red meat had no significant association with either cardiovascular disease or type II diabetes (62).
9. Refined Seed- and Vegetable Oils Are Healthy
[S]eed - and vegetable oils are associated with a significantly increased risk of heart disease…(77, 78, 79, 80, 81).
It’s important to keep in mind that this does NOT apply to other plant oils like coconut oil and olive oil, which are low in Omega-6 and extremely healthy.
10. Low-Carb Diets Are Ineffective and Downright Harmful
Low-carb diets are the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight and reverse metabolic disease. It is pretty much a scientific fact at this point.
12. Sugar is Bad Because it Contains “Empty” Calories
This applies to fructose from added sugars, NOT the natural sugars found in fruits. When consumed in excess, added sugar is associated with multiple diseases, including obesity, heart disease, type II diabetes and even cancer (109, 110, 111, 112, 113).
Sugar is probably the single worst ingredient in the modern diet.
