You may have noticed a subtle change on your food ingredients list. Big, bad sugar is being replaced by the fresher, greener sounding evaporated cane juice. But how does this ingredient differ from sugar? It doesn’t, says the FDA.
If you Google the words “green smoothie,” you will be inundated with recipes for the perfect healthy shake. You might have to look a little farther for the elixir popular in Peru and Bolivia, which relies not on leafy greens, but on the endangered Titicaca water frog.
There are few things on this planet I hate more than bottled water. Just the crinkling sound of someone wrapping their mouth around one of those squeaky garbage accordions fills me with rage. I stopped drinking it a long time ago—and you should stop drinking it, too.
The London Marathon was held earlier today, and among its runners? Astronaut Tim Peake, orbiting above the Earth on the International Space Station, and he set the world(?) record for running a marathon in space.
Why I hate GMO labeling? Because it tells the consumer absolutely nothing. If a tomato is labeled “GMO”, it might mean “modified to resist pesticides”, in which case I would probably avoid it, or it might mean “modified to stay resist freezing”, in which case I would be willing to pay extra for it.
I oppose GMO labeling because to people who actually understand what GMO is (or can be), they provide no useful information, whereas scaring away people who do not understand it. It is a lose-lose.
Your kitchen is a dangerous place, just waiting to combust into flames at any moment. That was our Stern Bolding—did it work? Are you reading this while two slices of leftover pizza are starting to singe in the oven? Stay alert! Here’s how to deal with a kitchen fire, according to Lt. Mancuso.
Don’t keep your fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Keep it just outside the kitchen, so a kitchen fire can’t block access to it. If you put it inside a cabinet or something, make sure everyone who does any cooking in your kitchen knows where it is.
An international panel of doctors has decided that a type of tumor that was classified as a cancer is not a cancer at all.
As a result, they have officially downgraded the condition, and thousands of patients will be spared removal of their thyroid, treatment with radioactive iodine and regular checkups for the rest of their lives, all to protect against a tumor that was never a threat.
Really? I mean in most countries it already breaks down the GDA of energy, fat, carbs, protein, and salt, along with how many grams of each per serving and container. Then clearly separate is the ingredients and allergens. I’d say that’s pretty easy to grasp.
Plus how much you burn has so many variables, I get it’s an average, and that’s fine, but I also feel something should be mentioned about how everyone has a BMR, so up to a certain number of calories will be burnt off just by your bodies functions, even if you do absolutely nothing all day long. “Eat a bar of chocolate? Still 200 calories under your BMR? You’re probably fine.”
