CK Links--Friday January 16, 2015

Readers! Before we get to the links this week, I want to share with you a radio interview I did with BreakThru Radio yesterday. It was a wide-ranging and really interesting conversation with DJ Jess Goulart about many of the themes we talk about here at CK: how to cook healthy food for less, how to be a savvy and empowered consumer, and much, much more. Plus some great music too. Enjoy!

Now, onto the articles! As always, I welcome your thoughts.
