The magical air fryer: Mongolian Tofu + Seasoned Fries recipes Let’s talk about my latest obsession. I bought an air fryer. Because, you know, I needed another kitchen appliance. For months I fought it, as I watched food photo after photo go up on Facebook featuring gorgeous fried food with the promise of no-oil or low-oil. Here’s what I know about air frying: A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer thanks to the Maillard effect. Hot air frying is a new cooking technique that allows you to fry, grill and roast without the use of copious amounts of fat or oil. Just over two weeks ago on the Facebook group Power to the Veg! And, guess what? The fries / wedges tasted great. Okay, the next time I sliced the potatoes and tossed with just a wee bit of oil (no, I didn’t soak or pat dry, this is scientific research folks!). Now we’re getting somewhere. And from there I kept playing. Like these seasoned fries. But tofu. Tofu is what I really, really wanted to master. And then enjoy!

7 Things Healthy People Do Every Morning Krista Butler (Mind Body Green) Struggling to get out of bed in the morning with a smile on your face?

My alarm is set to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. 1. This rehydrates your body, revs up your digestive system, and gets things flowing. 2. Do you sleep with your cell phone next to you and grab for it first thing when you wake? 3. This sets the stage for positivity throughout the day. 4. Fill your lungs with fresh air. 5. You don’t necessarily have to do an intense workout before breakfast, but moving your body even a little is a great way to get the blood flowing and shake the body into wake-up mode. 6. Rather than reaching for a box of cereal, focus on getting real foods in your body. 7. Look into the mirror and say something positive to yourself.

How Your Cat Is Making You Crazy - Kathleen McAuliffe No one would accuse Jaroslav Flegr of being a conformist. A self-described “sloppy dresser,” the 53-year-old Czech scientist has the contemplative air of someone habitually lost in thought, and his still-youthful, square-jawed face is framed by frizzy red hair that encircles his head like a ring of fire. Certainly Flegr’s thinking is jarringly unconventional. The parasite, which is excreted by cats in their feces, is called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii or Toxo for short) and is the microbe that causes toxoplasmosis—the reason pregnant women are told to avoid cats’ litter boxes. But if Flegr is right, the “latent” parasite may be quietly tweaking the connections between our neurons, changing our response to frightening situations, our trust in others, how outgoing we are, and even our preference for certain scents. An evolutionary biologist at Charles University in Prague, Flegr has pursued this theory for decades in relative obscurity. He delved into T. gondii’s life cycle.

Is Google Glass suitable for schools? Moving on from mobile hand-held devices, technology firms are now exploring the possibilities of watches, headsets and wristbands. But can such innovation have a place in the education sector? Google's Glass headset is one of the most high-profile examples of this technology. Currently within the developer stage -- before being released to the public next year with a $1500 price tag -- Project Glass is a headset complete with a single lens. The lens adds a virtual layer on to a user's surroundings; displaying information to the wearer including location, social media feeds and data on the environment. A number of companies have already begun developing applications suitable for use with the headset. There are a handful of apps, including storytelling boards and note takers, which could have a place in our schools, although the full potential of wearable technology is yet to be explored.
