Vomiting. Diarrhea. Cramps. Food poisoning is no fun. In most cases, your body will heal itself as long as you drink plenty of fuids until the GI problems clear up.
True enough. Almost any chicken or turkey burger is leaner than one made of “regular” (30% fat) ground beef. Regular ground beef has 230 calories and 6 grams of saturated…
It’s “microwave popcorn reinvented” for so many reasons. The popcorn is organic, the paper bag is compost-able, and the box is made of recycled materials. And Quinn packages its unsaturated…
Most ploys for getting kids to eat vegetables just create lifelong negative attitudes about veggies. And bribery to eat their vegetables is even worse! That tells a child that vegetables…
If there’s one thing experts agree on, it’s that we should eat more vegetables. But sometimes it’s hard to come up with a new, interesting, and easy dish. And salad bars aren’t exactly an example of food safety, most of the time.
The Eat Smart brand of gourmet vegetable salad kits is to the rescue. Below we’ll review their ingredients, nutrients, and will tell you where to buy them.
Eat Smart’s Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit “contains 7 superfoods,” as the label says. That would be broccoli, brussels sprouts, green cabbage, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, and roasted pumpkin seeds.
Tea is in. The average American drinks some 155 cups a year. That makes tea the country’s fourth most popular beverage, after water, soft drinks, and coffee.
There is no doubt that tea is an invigorating drink – probably due to how much caffeine is in tea (about half the caffeine of coffee).
And the national waistline would be far better off if we replaced some of that soda with tea (provided we sipped it with little or no sugar).
More than 80 percent of American adults consume caffeine regularly. That’s no surprise, what with a coffee shop seemingly on every corner and in every supermarket, and tiny $3 bottles of 5-hour Energy popping up like mushrooms wherever there’s a checkout counter. It turns out, though, that there is also caffeine in ice cream and frozen yogurt.
How does caffeine work in the body?
Caffeine works mainly by temporarily binding to adenosine receptors in the brain. That prevents adenosine, which is a natural sedative produced by the brain, from occupying those receptors and making us feel drowsy. Adenosine levels build up during waking hours and then drop as we sleep.
People who don’t use caffeine regularly and who haven’t developed a dependence on it “usually become significantly more alert and better able to perform cognitive and motor tasks – such as paying attention during boring tasks or typing – if they’re given the right dose of caffeine,” says Laura Juliano, a professor of psychology at American University in Washington, D.C.
Here are three dishes that are inspired by the flavors of Mexico. Cilantro and lime make a mild fish sparkle, spicy chipotle mellowed by sweet orange juice makes chicken smoky…
The creamer aisle is hot. From caramel macchiato, crème brûlée, and white chocolate caramel latte to Almond Joy, Cinnabon, and Hershey’s, it’s no longer just a question of “Cream or sugar?”
And it’s not just creamer. Starbucks, Silk, International Delight, and others now sell ready-to-drink coffee in bottles, cartons, or cans. It’s a whole new Joe out there.
Here’s a quick cruise through the creamer and coffee aisles.
