  • New mothers let their health slip after the baby arrives because of lack of exercise and unhealthy eating, according to a study published in Pediatrics journal. It took a group of researchers to tell us that new moms are too busy to eat right and exercise. I’m not a mom, but I will give a “Well, DUH” in sisterly solidarity. (CNN)
  • Please check out these pictures from the World Grits Festival. They made my day. (Best Week Ever)
  • Here’s a list of 50 great food-related accounts to follow on Twitter. One day, I’ll make the list. One day. *shakes fist with determination (The Kitchn)
  • Good news — Slow Food International is considering Louisville as a host city for the group’s international congress, which would be its first such event in the United States. Bad news — the group has postponed making a decision until June. (WFPL News)
  • Yum! Brands, the folks who own KFC, is lobbying the state to allow the disabled, elderly and homeless to use food stamp vouchers at the company’s restaurants. Folks are pissed at this prospect. (WFPL)
  • Oh, snap. Louisville is getting an organic produce/local food/natural grocery delivery service. And the company, Green BEAN, is going to donate to Dare to Care Food Bank. It’s my middle class dream to have something like this. (Business First of Louisville)
