• In case you were wondering, Americans eat out an average of five times a week, mostly at lunch. [UPI]

• Now that it’s in the hummus game, PepsiCo is trying to get Ethiopians to grow more chickpeas; it claims that as a side benefit, its efforts will help the famine situation in Africa. Hmmm. [NYT]

• In what might be the first instance of this ever, we actually agree with Michelle Bachman, who said stringent regulation of the food industry is overburdening small farms. [AP via Google]

• What does “all natural” mean when stamped on a food package? Eh, who knows. And that uncertainty has sparked lawsuits. [Law Blog/WSJ]
