Comments Off on The Great Agave Nectar Debate

When I went vegan years ago, agave nectar was one of the first things on my shopping list. It’s commonly used as a vegan substitute for honey – you can substitute it in recipes that call for honey 1:1

Comments Off on Ethnic Eating in Rural America: Make Your Own Naan Bread

Lesson number one about trading urban living for rural Green Acres:  You give up that perpetual buffet of authentic ethnic food options.  While just about half the U.S. population lives in rural areas, most restaurant options reflect a bland line of fast food restaurants and heat-and-serve diners. But when we moved to our Wisconsin farm over a decade ago from Chicago and opened our B&B, Inn Serendipity , this lack of international booty didn’t qualify as a deterring fork in our road toward sustainable living in the country.  We life gives you a lack of pad Thai, curry or sushi, you simply learn to make your own.

Comments Off on Create Your 2010 Good Food Bliss List

As mid-January rolls in, those traditional New Year’s health resolutions fade away:  Loose ten pounds, get fit, etc.  Why?  Deprivation sucks.  Our food loving community here at Eat Drink Better continues to rise like yeast dough on a hot day for one common reason:  we embrace food with passion and realize that our eating choices impact the world around us.  Hungry for knowledge, we share a mutual quest to eat and drink better. So while January still hangs on the calendar, come up with your own “Good Food Bliss List” for 2010.  Folks probably are familiar with the “Bucket List” concept, popularized by the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman:  Make a list of all those things you want to do before you “kick the bucket.”  Oh yeah one more point:  do them.

Comments Off on Fast Food and Restaurant Calorie Counts are Higher Than Advertised

A recent study discovered that the calories listed by many popular chain restaurants in the United States and in frozen processed meals sold in the grocery stores are understated by 10% to 18%.  The study calls into question the accuracy of the calorie amounts that are listed on packages or displayed by fast food chain restaurants in the United States and worldwide. The study was published in the January edition of Journal of the American Dietetic Association and was conducted by nutrition experts.  The research looked at various menu offerings at restaurants including Wendy’s, Ruby Tuesday, McDonald’s, Denny’s, and Domino’s Pizza and noted that the average menu item was understated by 18% of calories.

Comments Off on Pomega5 Oil of Life Cleansing Bar

I think I am inadvertently on the quest for the perfect soap because lately that’s what I have really been sampling and testing. This round of sampling has me trying out Pomega5 Oil of Life Cleansing Bar which has changed names since I first receive the product for review and is now called the Lemongrass Clarifying Cleansing Bar. Lemongrass makes more sense because it smells like lemon not pomegranate

Comments Off on “Swelling Glass” Cleans Polluted Water Like a Sponge

This is the discovery that could put the College of Wooster on the map: glass that swells like a sponge .  Put together like a nano-matrix, the new glass can unfold to hold up to eight times its weight.  The glass binds with gasoline and other pollutants containing volatile organic compounds but it does not bind with water, so it acts like a “smart” sponge, capable of picking and choosing from contaminated groundwater .
