While today is Election Day, and many of you will be focused on the results as they roll in from each state, it is also an exciting day for the One Dollar Diet Project.
In today’s New York Times there is an article about our project titled “Money is Tight, and Junk Food Beckons” written by Tara Parker-Pope. This officially takes the conversation out of the blogosphere and puts it in print. We’ve come a long way baby. Look for it in the Science section of your newsprint edition.
It’s funny, because our friend and writer Dave Tow, who we had over for dinner during our project, was told by his editor at City Beat Magazine (our local alternative news weekly) that this was “irrelevant” and didn’t print the story. We’re not sure if she meant his writing or our project. What we do know is that Dave is good writer, and nothing is more relevant than our country’s widening conversation about healthful eating and the economics of food.
We hope you enjoy the article.
We continued to work today in order to refine our vision for furthering the experiment in exciting new ways, and spent even more time considering the outline of the book.
For those of you who are reading our entries for the first time, enjoy and share with friends. We look forward to hearing from you.
