3 Simple Sweet Treats to Serve Mom This Mother’s Day Food 

3 Simple Sweet Treats to Serve Mom This Mother’s Day

(Foodista) – I read recently that only 4% of mothers want breakfast in bed and preferred instead to go out for brunch. I must be in the 4% as the last thing I want is to be in a frenetically busy restaurant on what should be a day of peaceful pampering. My idea of Mother’s Day is lounging quietly with a nice cup of tea, reading my Kindle and stack of magazines, and noshing on something simple and delightful. I don’t often splurge on sweet things, but Mother’s Day is the no-diet exception. Below are three sweet treats from Bonne Read More

A Calorie Is A Calorie: Or Is It A Conspiracy? Food Health 

A Calorie Is A Calorie: Or Is It A Conspiracy?

World (Mosaic) – “For me, a calorie is a unit of measurement that’s a real pain in the rear.” Bo Nash is 38. He lives in Arlington, Texas, where he’s a technology director for a textbook publisher. And he’s 5’10” and 245 lbs – which means he is classed as obese. In an effort to lose weight, Nash uses an app to record the calories he consumes and a Fitbit band to track the energy he expends. These tools bring an apparent precision: Nash can quantify the calories in each cracker crunched and stair climbed. But when it comes to Read More

Instagram Snaps of Japanese Foods You May Not Have Heard Of

Japan (GV) – Raw chicken, fish sperm, raw liver, and “cherry blossom meat” While most people are familiar with sushi and Japanese sweet potato,  there are a lot of more adventurous Japanese foods out there.

While breast and thigh meat are standard fare, there are also plenty of other parts of the chicken on Read More

An Ode to Onion Rings Food 

An Ode to Onion Rings

(FEE) – I’s wonderful that modern society is prosperous enough that we can spend our hard-earned discretionary income on luxuries unimaginable to humans from centuries past. These luxuries include cars and computers, but also feature the simple and ubiquitous features of modern life. Take the onion ring. Made of two basic components, the onion and the breading, subsequently deep fried in fat or oil, the onion ring is almost entirely devoid of substantive nutritional value. It is an amazing luxury that modern man is so wealthy, and so well-fed, that he can eat fried, breaded onions solely for pleasure. Read More

Your Vote Doesn’t Count: Grow Food Instead

(WAKING TIMES) – The most effective change-makers in our society aren’t waiting around for a new president to make their lives better, they’re planting seeds, quite literally, and through the revolutionary act of gardening, they’re rebuilding their communities while growing their own independence. Every four years when the big election comes around, millions of people put their passion for creating a better world into an increasingly corrupt and absurd political contest. What if that energy was instead invested in something worthwhile, something that directly and immediately improved life, community, and the world at large? The simple act of growing our Read More

Every Taco Bell Is a Chapel

(FEE) – Taco Bell recently had two great ideas that had nothing to do with its menu. It is opening a wedding chapel in its store in Las Vegas. And it is holding a competition called the “Love and Tacos” sweepstakes. The likely winner posted a photo that went viral of her wedding dress made of Taco Bell wrappers, to be announced on March 16. Genius! Fast food thrives off genuine love for its brand, service, and product, without which it could never work. So this competition is entirely appropriate, and how wonderful that its marketing has tapped into Read More

Why Americans Refrigerate Eggs Featured Food 

Why Americans Refrigerate Eggs

United States (FEE) – A few years ago, I bought some fresh eggs from a friend who owned chickens. They were wonderful. I’m not fussy about the topic so I can’t say that I go out of my way to get fresh eggs. I’ll take them when I can get them. However, I’ve long been intrigued by her instructions to me: “they do not need to be refrigerated.” This struck me as weird. I guess I thought they would spoil if they are left out or maybe gradually become a chicken or something. She assured me no, and her Read More

Cooking As a Busy, Broke Millennial

(FEE) – Cooking can be a scary thing. There are a lot of things to keep track of, there are sharp knives, Gordon Ramsay is in your head telling you how bad you are at the basic skill of feeding yourself, and, amazingly, fast food is faster. But it’s also a lot cheaper than eating out, it tastes good, and it feels good to make real live actual meals for yourself. And it’s hella romantic. Thankfully we don’t live in a communist country, which means we have stores filled from floor to ceiling with every ingredient you could ever Read More
