Re: “Flash in the Pan

Also, doughnuts and soda don't make you fat. Consuming more calories than you burn increases body fat. Those calories can come from any higher calorie source, many of which are touted as "healthy alternatives" to whatever "bad" food you think you can't eat.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

It would be helpful if you cited the "evidence" and named the study "published on March 25." And calling sugar the new tobacco insinuates that sugar is unsafe to consume in any quantity. Moderate sugar intake will not blow out your liver or give you Alzheimer's and to suggest otherwise is fear-mongering.

"The Sugar Association" ! Good grief ! It's just one of altogether too may special interest trade groups looking out only for its own short term interest, and the public's interest - long term or short term - be damned. Those special interest groups aren't confined, by any means, to the industrial food production industries : Think of the banking and insurance lobbies, the fossil fuel industries and Big Pharma as only a few of the more obvious and egregious examples.

I think that if one could trace the root causes of obesity and many, if not most, of amerika's other health problems back to their sources, you'd find the malevolence of the industrial agri-business and food production/manufacturing industries and the "food science" researchers at the state land grant universities, and all the artificial additives and substitutions and other junk they adulterate food with.

It's probably not a good idea to put anything in your body if you don't know what it is, or if you can't pronounce it; and the other side of that coin is you'll probably be a lot healthier if you eat simple, unprocessed, "real" food.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

change is hard isn't it meat industry ?

The landmark story here, the UN report done in 2006

Livestock impacts on the environment

' A new report from FAO says livestock production is one of the major causes of the world's most pressing environmental problems, including global warming, land degradation, air and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. Using a methodology that considers the entire commodity chain, it estimates that livestock are responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, a bigger share than that of transport. However, the report says, the livestock sector's potential contribution to solving environmental problems is equally large, and major improvements could be achieved at reasonable cost.

Based on the most recent data available, Livestock's long shadow takes into account the livestock sector's direct impacts, plus the environmental effects of related land use changes and production of the feed crops animals consume. It finds that expanding population and incomes worldwide, along with changing food preferences, are stimulating a rapid increase in demand for meat, milk and eggs, while globalization is boosting trade in both inputs and outputs.

Re: “Munchies

Thanks for the question -- and the catch. We accidentally omitted 1 cup of red wine in the ingredients, Anita. The recipe's been updated.

Re: “Munchies

How much wine should we use in the stew?

Re: “Flash in the Pan

I had 40 lbs of tomatillos in the garage from the summer and all i can say is WOW!!! this is an amazing recipe to put them in. I have made it three times since i saw it in the Indy. I made it for hunting camp the first time..Amazing! Warms to the bone and gives you the later afternoon energy to get out there in the cold. The second time i made it for a party and everyone was dancing around in habanero sweatyness. the third time is just for freezing and warming up during this bone chilling cold evenings in January.
One change that i made to the recipe is to roast the tomatillios, peppers, onions and garlic. Gives the dish an amazing smokies. Never in three times making it have i used the same mix of peppers, change it up for the goodness of your soul.

Re: “Munchies

you mean the plethora of pretentious hipster eateries here aren't enough to keep everyone satiated? "Convenience Food" restaurants give me the chills....they promise ambrosia on a plate, but i always end up feeling like i got "Ye Olde Sock" instead....and if you knew what was in those trucked-in menu items offered at most chain places, you would gladly crawl back to your own kitchen and try...try...try to make your own special is not that difficult, and much more gratifying. trust me.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

I love tomatillos and also believe they are misunderstood and underutilized. After making this yesterday, I can say with absolutely no shame that I would eat this off the floor. Truly a culinary experience of a lifetime, and one that I'll be making over and over.

Re: “Munchies

At least Chipotles attempts to use local and/or organic food when available. Chik-fil-A? Never. Why would I want to give my money to a company owner who's a hate-filled bigot? And Olive Garden recently hired a "turn-around" expert, who advised eliminating the endless bread sticks and salad. Actually, they'll still be available, but they won't be piled up on the table -- you'll have to ask for them, as so many are wasted. Makes sense, I guess. Plus it will save mucho money.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

Lost in the discussion of low-fat vs. high carb diets is that the high carb diets of the 1980s, such as the target diet, were also premised on regular aerobic activity. Carbs are significant to aerobic activity. What about all those pasta feeds for marathon runners? Further, those high carb diets are focused on complex carbs, not sanctioning the empty calories of high fructose corn syrup.

Heavy metals are poison that will make you sick and in time kill you! People in China are sick and dying from heavy metals by the hundreds of thousands! Its already in American food due to imports from China and this is a fact! Anyone contaminated with heavy metals in and away from China should be detoxing with the natural mineral called Zeolite that has been proven to safely remove both heavy metals and radiation from the human body. For more information on this detox do a search for the single word Zeolite.

Eating BSB food is like seeing Unwound or Rorschach play in a basement in 1993 to 20 people... you know it's the shit and you wonder when more people will get it.
