Eating 10 hot dogs in 6 minutes and belching the national anthem may impress your friends, but neither of those feats will do much for your body—at least not much good. Instead, why not train yourself to do something that may actually pay off? We're not talking bench presses and interval training (though those do help). You can teach your body to cure itself from everyday health ailments—side stitches, first-date jitters, even hands that have fallen asleep.

New evidence suggests that certain foods that taste great together also interact with one another in nutritionally positive ways.
Magnetic Gels on the Move Miklós Zrínyi of Semmelweiss University in Budapest, Hungary, has created some gels that are anything but gellin’. In fact, these gels are moving, shaking, and otherwise getting around with a little help from magnetism. The gel “snakes” --made from a mix of polymer and metal particles--bend to match the shape of any magnetic field exerted upon them.
5. It's just trendy No, it's not. I participated in the first social networks and helped build and curate one almost 10 years ago and things are just getting interesting business-wise now. The Cluetrain Manifesto is 11 years old and at this point, you're either in or you're going to be left out. Free in not a benefit, it's a feature.
I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before.

SLIDESHOW: Ramen Hacks: 30+ Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Instant Noodles [Photographs: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt] Ramen in the U.S. has come a long way. Once known only in its 10-for-a-dollar instant-lunch form—a staple of offices and dorm rooms all around the '80s and '90s—high-end real ramen shops are springing up left and right on both coasts and everywhere in between. As a half-Japanese kid in the '80s, I grew up eating instant ramen at least once a week, and it still holds a special place in my gut.
I really wanted to come on here and say, "Happy Spring!" with it all sunny and warm out... but that's not the case. Oh, it was 70 degrees here last Friday, but today.. today it's in the 30's and snowing. Not just flurrying either - we could get up to 10 inches of snow.

Hellooooo, good lookin’! What a way to start the week! :) Last weekend as we were exploring Blue Ridge, GA , we stopped by this charming little bakery. They had all kinds of delicious looking homemade brownies.
When you're feeling under the weather, and with the weather supposedly changing from winter to spring, that's likely, there's nothing like home-cooked food for rapid improvement. Garlic and Chicken Soup will easily nurse you back to health, and Rice Pudding Cereal will deliver you into the comfort of your mother's kitchen-at least Cara's mother's kitchen. When you're nearly back on your feet, invest twelve hours of couch time watching your no-knead bread rise, then eat it toasted with butter or butter and cinnamon sugar. Last but not least, to celebrate your return (or near return) to health, feast on nourishing, soul-feeding Mac and Cheese. --Cara and Phoebe of Big Girls, Small Kitchen **Recipes**

On this page you will see how long it will take for you to burn calories you have consumed doing what you usually do during the day. This calculator will show you the exact time you need to walk, run, play basketball, drive a car or simply sleep to burn your calories.
