Nude food

Canada (CK) – Zero-waste grocery stores are beginning to appear across Canada, with the aim of curtailing the scourge of food packaging. he letters glazed on the large shopfront window promise something most grocers don’t typically offer: food in the buff. This is Nu, Ottawa’s first zero-waste grocery store, where virtually everything on offer comes stripped of packaging, or naked as the name suggests in French. Inside the airy 1,700 square foot space, you’ll find display cases of fresh fruits and vegetables, with no cling wrap, Styrofoam trays or spools of plastic baggies in sight. A wall of shiny stainless steel containers Read More

The science of taste, or why you choose fries over broccoli

(Conversation) – Most people say that if there is a healthy choice on a menu they will take it. But observations and research show this is generally not the case. Instead, people tend to make choices based on how food tastes. Typically, the more sugar, salt and fat in the food, the more we will like it. Genetics, experience and environment also influence our perception of food and the consumption choices we make. Australians are still not eating as healthily as they should, despite years of programs and publicity warning of the health impacts of poor diets. But what Read More

This Grocery Store Is *So* You Unaimed 

This Grocery Store Is *So* You

World (FEE) – The problem with food is that it disappears. There’s less of it every time you eat until finally you’re hungry and there really isn’t much left. Then you have to go and buy more and the whole thing starts all over again as you eat some of it on the way home. I swear I spend half my life buying food. If I wake up energetic enough, early enough, and it’s the right season, I’ll go to the farmer’s market, but that doesn’t happen often enough to be a reliable source of food for me. Even ordering 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

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

How to Get the Best Super Bowl Food

United States (FEE) – After having the thought vaguely roaming in my head for a while, I finally saw it articulated sassily online somewhere: I could buy this thing online somewhere in five minutes for $5, but instead I will make it myself for $20 and hours of work. We used to have to make everything ourselves. Literally everything. Thankfully, through the millennia we’ve progressed to a point where we no longer have to make a thing ourselves. Anything. But in the last decade or so there’s been a huge revival of DIYs, to the point where you’re basically a Read More
