Tomorrow you may eat 6,071 calories at a July 4th BBQ. A Tour de France cyclist will burn that much in one hour according to Business Insider. Mmm, the article says that’s 3.6 Chipotle burritos, 6.9 Cinnabon rolls or 242.8 carrots. What you eat or don’t eat can be big news.

In today’s breaking news, there’s a “Fancy Food Show” where I’m sure, “Flavor is in the Fat.” Not only the flavor of food makes news, but also the cost.

The health of food makes for great news angles too, like this diabetes story.

So, if you’re a cook, chef, grocery store owner, food manufacturer or nutritionist, holidays especially make for great news hooks. So, if you want media to pay attention, use food. They’ll eat it up!
