A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. And a #freeandopen Internet depends on you.
The idea that you have to choose between "healthy" and "delicious" is a false choice, a byproduct of an industrial food system.

Hunter-gather societies tend to be free of obesity. One assumption is that they avoid it by remaining physically active, by simply burning more calories as a result of their lifestyles.
But a team of researches has studied the burning of calories among Tanzania's Hazda people and found that although they're more active than your average person in an industrial society, they don't burn a significantly larger number of calories during the day.
The reason is that their bodies tend to be more efficient at conserving energy while at rest. Or, stated another way, our own bodies have apparently adapted to sedentary lifestyles by burning more calories while we're at rest.
Conclusion: The reason we have an obesity epidemic and the Hazda do not has more to do with the superiority of their diet, rather than the fact that they burn more calories.
The Hazda eat primarily fruit, honey, greens, tubers and, occasionally and seasonally, wild-game meat.

3. Always look at trends, not data points
4. Communicate the findings with passion
