• Psychology today reports: “Barbeques, it turns out, are good for your mental health — particularly when they take place in green spaces.” Here we thought our backyard bashes were so great because of the euphoric potato salad. [psychologytoday.com via eatocracy.cnn.com]

• In the latest cafeteria lunch news, public schools in Los Angeles are considering banning chocolate milk due to its high sugar content. [washingtonpost.com] [On Food Network: Better School Lunches]

• Meanwhile, there’s a movement in universities coast to coast (Berkeley to Penn) to cater to gourmet-minded students. A program at Wesleyan University, for instance, allows students to use their meal cards for local, organic cheese. [washingtonpost.com via grubstreet.com]

• Meet William Leigh, the new taste tester for the British chocolate company Green & Black. We’re pretty sure he has the best job ever –- all the fun of Willy Wonka’s factory without the responsibility of maintaining the chocolate extraction pipe system for the chocolate river. [bbc.co.uk]

    I knew it! This whole time, burgers, hot dogs, chicken, pork, steak, ALL good for my health :) I would never think that chocolate milk would be banned. Cut the sugar, not the chocolate. If anyone's looking to give back, send a message through text donate. Just find a cause and text to give a couple dollars. It simply goes on your phone bill. With tornadoes in the US, the tsunami in Japan, and the new "free" text donating in the UK, the whole world has to opportunity to give back just by texting a message with your phone. Find out more and text donate if you can. Thank you and cheers!
