Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:
We’ve got great news for you to check out today – and fried vegetarians, too. Yes.
Now That’s Rare: FDA Gets Tough
Well played, FDA, well played. As everyone and their goldfish knows by now, the FDA is no stranger to bribery and corruption. Various moves (a new chief , a new pyramid ) haven’t yielded much improvement.
Alas, in an effort to stop annoying us, a meaningful measure has just been announced .
Something’s Fishy? Good!
A well-conducted little study shows that fish oil pills are the way to go , especially for those concerned about their blood sugar. Fish oil beats fish, but make sure you buy a good one  so you don’t get those awful fish burps. (Yeah, we’re biased.)
Other ways to get those beneficial fatty acids into your body? These days, there’s hardly a thing that isn’t Omega-3 enhanced. It’s actually getting pretty difficult to find non-good-fat products.
A quick tip: Look for eggs, butter, mayonnaise and nut butters with added EPA (eicosapentenoic acid) or DHA (docosahexanoic acid). These are the two best types of Omega-3 fat . The other kind, ALA (alpha linoleic acid), is often used in vegetable spreads and vegetarian products, but your body has to work pretty hard to utilize this type. It’s still good, just not great.
The cool thing? Chickens fed flaxseed (an ALA source) do all the converting for you, so scope out the enhanced, free-range eggs in your dairy case.
News to Go Nuts Over
Megnut  is a nutty blogger you should definitely check out . While we don’t condone cookies, we’re so glad we stumbled onto this savvy, smart blog. Case in point: Finally, someone’s doing something about those torturous mama pig gestation crates. Whether you eat pork or not, this is a really humane step in the right direction , and it’s worth reading about. Be sure to scroll down to read Meg’s other enjoyable snippets  on Starbucks’ milk, Wal-Mart and nutritional slow-pokes. (Why does everything “take years ” with these big companies and organizations? Come on! Years?)
This picture is from the Heart Attack Grill , an actual place that serves this actual burger behemoth.
