After more than a year of being tied up in a partisan political battle, Dr. Vivek Murthy, President Obama’s choice for surgeon general,  was confirmed.  Progressives – including those in the food movement – welcomed the nod.

The Boston Globe profiled Murthy shortly after he was nominated in November, 2013. The piece reveals, among other things, some of the food products found in his kitchen: almond milk, whole grains, and carrots.
