Avocados are amazing things—they're delicious on their own, but they also have a lot of healthy fats, dietary fibers, and vitamins, and despite their high caloric value, they're remarkably easy to prepare. If you have an avocado that's too firm to use for something else, or you're just in the mood for something new and healthy for breakfast, slice it in half, remove the pit, and carve out a little space in the center. Crack an egg where the pit was, and bake. In a few minutes, you'll have a delicious, protein and vitamin-packed breakfast treat that's rich enough to keep you going all morning. The recipe itself is pretty simple, and comes to us thanks to reddit user fungz0r: preheat oven to 425, have cast iron pan in thereSlice avocado in half, take out pittake pan out, put avocado half on, crack egg input whatever you want on topplace in oven and cook till your eggs [are done how you] desire

Sorghum Bran – A New Superfood Posted on Sept. 20, 2010, 6 a.m. in Functional FoodsInflammation Researchers from the University of Georgia have found that certain varieties of sorghum bran (Sorghum bicolor) contain significantly greater amounts of antioxidants than the popular superfoods blueberries and pomegranate. Diana Hartle and colleagues determined the level of polyphenolic compounds, antioxidants which naturally occur in plants, in black and sumac varieties of sorghum bran, both of which contain high levels of tannins. Results showed that the levels of polyphenolic compounds in these high-tannin varieties ranged from 23 to 62 mg of polyphenolics per gram. In comparison, blueberries contain 5 mg of polyphenolics per gram, while pomegranate juice contains just 2 to 3.5 mg per gram.

Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites 610K+Add bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here.

The Good Food Bully: Honey, Lemon, Ginger, Cinnamon, Garlic...Oh My! Spring time. I love it. I love the little buds on the trees, the tulips starting to come up and no more long johns, yippee!

But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want.

Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars I haven’t had real, good old-fashioned smores that are made over a campfire in far too long. Like about twenty years, give or take, but who’s counting. The last time I roasted marshmallows over a campfire was when I was a Girl Scout. I have memories of being too impatient to wait for the marshmallows to toast evenly and instead, I would intentionally dip my wooden stick, with splinter-filled marshmallows speared on it, directly into the flames. The marshmallows would ignite, char, and then I’d blow out the flaming charcoal black blobs of hot molten sugar, previously known as marshmallows.
