Uno Cappuccino | Just Bento | a healthy meal in a box: great bento recipes, tips, and more Onnit™ Labs, home of the Alpha BRAIN®, Shroom TECH™, New MOOD™, and Stron BONE™ Supplements – Onnit Labs B Too Brunch | Bitches Who Brunch There are so many new restaurants opening up in my Logan ‘hood that I am absolutely spoiled for choice at the moment. There’s not a top spot I want to try on any given Friday night—there are four or five top spots I want to try. A few Saturdays ago, Cori Sue deftly arranged a stellar GNO, beginning with dinner at the new B Too, followed by drinks at the also-new Black Whiskey, then the continuation of our bar-hopping all the way up 14th Street. Dinner that night was fun because we had a fabulous group of ladies holding court around a table in the middle of the new Belgian restaurant. During dinner, Chef Bart Vandaele stopped by our table, flirting and cooing at us. So when brunch was finally announced, Cori Sue and I decided to drag ourselves back there (post-Saturday Electric Brunch Party, post-Pride Parade ridiculousness, post-Epic Saturday of all Saturdays). We were seated downstairs this time—our first visit to the lower level of B Too. The brunch cocktail menu is stellar.
The London Review of Breakfasts Food Babe Investigates: Is Subway Real Food? This is a guest post from Vani Hari (a.k.a. The Food Babe). Subway is the single largest chain restaurant in the world. That means you’ve probably eaten there at some point in your lifetime and if you are like me could possibly have 10 of these restaurants within a 1 mile radius of your house. But is eating at America’s favorite fast food chain really eating real food? Subway would certainly like you to think so. You may also feel tricked when you see a little heart logo, indicating a menu item at Subway is “heart healthy.” At every Subway on the “sneeze guard” glass they display one version of their nutritional information – the infamous “6 grams of fat or less” menu. Let’s take a closer look. Subway definitely keeps it fresh and I figured out how. Three sandwiches on this menu, along with several other menu items not listed, are comprised of processed meats and filled with nitrates and forms of MSG. Last weekend, I broke this streak and went into a Subway in search of real food. P.S.

Reclaiming Provincial Southern Pink Lemonade NOAA - FishWatch: Pacific Common Thresher Shark Not to be confused with pelagic and bigeye thresher sharks, common thresher sharks are one of the most commonly harvested sharks off the U.S. West Coast. Most of the catch comes from the pelagic drift gillnet fishery that mainly targets swordfish. The West Coast drift gillnet fishery operates under a suite of state and federal management measures that ensure the common thresher shark resource is protected and the seafood provided by this fishery is harvested responsibly.
The Ethicurean: Chew the right thing. | A blog about the quest for tasty things that are also sustainable, organic, local, and/or ethical — SOLE food, for short. Dymaxion. On the Geography of Coffee Bar Language - The Survey Results! A few days ago, inspired by the awesome New York Times feature "How Y’all, Youse, and You Guys Talk" I thought I might apply a small part of this idea to coffee. After all, there is a bunch of variation in coffee language across the United States: most people who travel for coffee at some point notice that there are variations in language (what do you call that drink?) What is Brewed Coffee with Espresso Called? You don’t have to work at a coffee bar very long before some maniac asks you to put an espresso in a cup of coffee. As is instantly apparent, the closer you are to New York, the more likely you are to call the drink a “Red Eye”, and the closer you are to Seattle, the more likely you are to call it a “Shot In The Dark”. The Mysterious Mocha. This is an interesting one. Just Give Me The Regular So, first off, apparently people from New England don’t like to take web surveys. Porcelain or Glass? The noun is variety, you guys
