I'm more concerned a website called "Treehugger" exists...

Thinking of food as "simply fuel" is what got us into our shiatty obesity situation in the first place.

Uh, I'm pretty sure food was always important? Like, eating is fun? I wonder why ancient Egyptians carved depictions of food?

The whole idea of "food as fuel" is the result of plenty: you just open the fridge and food magically is in it.

You don't think of the vast amount of people and work and resources required to get the food, and you are not aware of the impending starvation if you offend the food gods.

That looks like a depiction of the beginning of the beer process to me.

Either that or something kinky is next. Isn't that a topless chick?

What a pretentious bit of English 101 twaddle.

Food hipsters.

A fella used to be able to like good food without these douchenozzles turning it into a f*cking competition.

Instagramming photos of your lunch makes you a self obsessed d-bag.  It's worse than genocide.

I love food, and even occasionally post in a food related group on facebook, but holy crap that article was boring.

/didn't make it much past the headline subby provided from body of article

You're right, Subby.  It is more than simply fuel.  It is now complexly fuel.

You're damn skippy it is.

My son is a chef in San Francisco and his Instagram is filled with the nice, nutritious stuff he puts together. I also follow a group called Nourished Kitchen. Not just food pron, but outstanding recipes and tips.

Looking at things a little differently has sparked a little creativity and helped me make smarter choices.

Nothing wrong with that!

Why do we Instagram our food?

Because, sadly, it is probably the most interesting thing about your life, you pretentious ninny.

Well *OBVIOUSLY* we are headed towards a glorious 3D printed utopia. Why, by late next week we'll live off 3D printed food and we'll all fly off this rock/mud ball in a divine techno rapture on 3D printed anti-gravity belts.

I mean, are you some kind of Luddite? The Wright Brothers put a gasoline engine on a kite, therefore anything, anything is possible.

It's always been beyond fuel. Food has always filled a psychological need in people. This is what happens when dumb people are quoted on a dumb subject.

I think you have it the wrong way around. Food as fuel is true for people who are (close to) starving. They'll want food, any food. But feed them the same, perfectly nutritious, slob every day for a week and they'll start complaining about wanting something else for a change. It is the people who know that they'll never starve that want the most variety on their plate.

True enough, but they won't see it as "simply fuel". They'll see it exactly for what it is: something vitally important. I guess this depends on how you view the phrase "simply fuel".

Fake.  Without a belt no one that fat can keep their pants up on their waist.

This. It predates civilization.

New music sucks.

New movies suck.

TV shows really suck.

New books suck.

Even old friends let you down.

But good food...
good food is wonderful.

No idea.

I never go on the Tweetbook, or Pinmyass or whatever it is the hip kids are doing to the internets ...

I found it strange that while everybody posts pictures of the food they eat, nobody posts pictures of the feces they expel.

You don't spend much time in the Politics tab, I see.
