Lunch Room Chatter: Eat less chicken

By Tim Carman

The latest in food news, ideas and philosophy, just in time for your lunch break.

Lunch Room Chatter wants to say a small blessing to those dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, whether directly or through loved ones.

* Convincing evidence of the link between poultry and antibiotic resistance or just more Chicken Little? (ARS Technica)

* Today's required reading: "You can't call a trend dead while it is still very much alive. You can wish it dead. You can imagine its imminent demise. Like bacon, you can certainly say it has jumped the shark. But someone can't just say that the cupcake trend is dead when, in any major city, you can't huck a brick without a reasonable chance it will go through the window of the local cupcakery. Much as I hate them, cupcakes are still everywhere. And no matter how many times some uppity food writer says they are over, the 10 bazillion soccer moms who daily fill the shops say otherwise. Numbers don't lie." (Seattle Weekly)

* GOP's proposed budget cuts could make your stomach churn. (Mother Jones)

* Women, hear them roar...for more coffee. (AP)

* Marathon runner gives whole new meaning to fast-food. (Chicago Sun-Times)

* Your parents always said that sugar was bad for you. (Edible Geography)

* Is marine life in the Gulf of Mexico on the edge of recovery or the brink of disaster? (Atlantic Life)

* Ousted "Top Chef" hopeful Carla Hall is looking to open a market and cafe in Washington. (Endless Simmer)
