Newport Beach Book Signing!

Newport Beach Book Signing! by Michelle Tam

I’m writing this on my flight home from New York, and as awesome as it was to eat my way through the Big Apple and meet a bunch of super awesome readers, I can’t wait to return to California and see my boys. Plus, according to the Uber driver who dropped us off at the airport, we missed being snowed in by just a few hours. I’m breathing a sigh of relief ’cause I packed only enough clean underwear to get me through today.

My crazy travel schedule continues in just a few days, but I’m happy to report that this time, I’ll be basking in the sunnier climes of Southern California. If you’re in Orange County and want to come by and ask me stuff, I’ll be doing a short Q&A and signing books at the Whole Foods Market in Newport Beach on Saturday, March 7th from 11 am to 1 pm! I’ll be scrawling all over your copies of Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans (which you can bring in or buy at the store) and giving away Mini-Michelle action figures and butt-kicking Nom Nom Paleo knee-high socks—just in time for the second WOD of the CrossFit Open!—until I run out of supplies. Sound like fun? Then click on this link to RSVP!

Vilsack: Guidelines committee members are like 3-year-olds

Yesterday’s Hagstrom Report quotes USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack’s comments to the Commodity Classic on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee:

The “folks who put those reports together … have freedom. They are like my 3-year-old granddaughter. She does not have to color inside the lines.”

His 5-year-old grandson, he said, “is learning about coloring within the lines.”

“I am going to color inside the lines,” Vilsack said.

Sounds like the USDA has no intention of doing what the DGAC recommends.

This is why it’s so important to file comments @ by April 8. You can also register there for the public meeting in Bethesda, Maryland, on March 24.
