To Your Health column: Naked and topless -- the un-burger trend

Original post made on Aug 15, 2008

Long before The Counter came to Palo Alto, my burgers were naked and topless — that is, bun-less. The Counter features an endless variety of burgers, including the salad-burger: a custom blend of greens and toppings stacked high around a perfectly symmetrical patty — an un-burger, naked and proud.

Oh my gosh- I love this writer! I barely have time to eat much less read an article about eating. But your style and factoids made it impossible to put down. Guilt free leisure. I love it! Now off to cut 200 calories from my day...

How great is it to be entertained and educated at the same time! I was just going to glance at this article, but found myself immediately engaged. Such a refreshing change also for a nutritionist to be standing next to me--as I try and make my way healthfully through the challenges of scheduling and food fortification--instead of over me yanking my guilt chain as if I were some recalcitrant ass (the four-legged kind). I wouldn't have expected this quality of writing and expertise in a local paper. I hope Ms. Tally's column is a regular addition. I could use advice like hers on a daily basis.

This writer is witty, wily and wise. Thanks for her great column. I, too, was going to skim the article, and found myself sitting down, reading and enjoying it, an act unusual for me regarding food and nuitrition!

Kudos to the Almanac and to the writer. And now I am off to have a bunless burger and a long walk outside in this gorgeous weather.

I think this column is a great plus to the Almanac. She is a very knowledgeable writer and we can all learn from her wisdom and insight on improving our health and lives.
