Food: Can Pizza Actually Be Healthy For You?
food

This article may come as a surprise to you, especially if you follow a healthy and nutritious diet…

It’s about pizza, the weakness of many people including me. I love pizza- always have. I make sure I eat it in moderation, but it’s still one of my favorite foods.


Now there’s good news for pizza lovers.

According to Men’s Health magazine, research concludes that pizza can be good for you. It’s important to point out, however, that we’re talking about real pizza- not the kind you get from Pizza Hut, Dominoes or the frozen food section of your supermarket. By real, I mean pizza made with real crust, real tomato sauce and pure olive oil.

According to Men’s Health, scientists writing in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating pizza can reduce your risk of a heart attack. In a 4-year study of nearly 1,000 Italians, those who ate pizza at least once a week were 30 percent less likely to experience a heart attack than the folks who didn’t partake of the pie.

This is contributed to pizza’s cardio protective ingredients, including olive oil and tomato sauce. And here’s a way to make the pizza even healthier: top it with vegetables, part-skim cheese and use whole wheat crust. You’ll then have a meal that is actually good for you.

Can you get this kind of a pizza in a pizzeria? You might be able to find some that offer whole wheat crust, but I doubt you’ll find any that offer part-skim cheese. What you can do is buy the ingredients at your local grocery store and make the pizza yourself. Speaking from experience, this can be a fun thing!

Enjoy the experience of making your own pizza and savoring a nutritious meal. After all, feeding your body with nutritious meals is the number one thing you can do for better health.

Food: Can Fast Food Be Healthy?
food

It is possible for people to make healthy food choices even if they only have a short time in which to prepare their meals. The first thing to realize is that it is often that healthy choices do not always mean a need for two-hour meals. A person can choose healthy foods that are quick and easy to prepare at home or to pickup from a takeout place. Cities often provide restaurant guides in their telephone books that display full-page menus indicating what a particular restaurant or drive-thru offers. Many of these food vendors now include healthy alternatives to their usual fast-food selection.


At places like McDonald’s and Hardee’s, it is possible to find consumers who are concerned about their carbohydrate consumption. This has prompted the restaurants to provide other options in their hamburger choices. Hamburgers can be ordered without the bun, for example, and fruit and yogurt are included on the menu along with fresh salads. Many restaurants provide salad choices either as side orders or as complete meals. Often, a salad of fresh vegetables with chopped ham, roast beef or chicken is more attractive than regular menu items. Salads are especially appealing in the summer months because they are lighter on the digestive system.

Restaurants that feature foods in season cultivated by local farmers offer very healthy and affordable choices. Some of these kinds of restaurants will create their own recipes for healthy food options. This provides the consumer with a totally new choice and encourages them to visit the restaurant again.

If home preparation of food is preferred, the options for healthy choices increase. Visiting a local grocery store or supermarket emphasizes the number of healthy choices that are available. Fresh fruits and vegetables are more varied than ever before due to improvements in transportation and preservation methods. All types of cuisine can be prepared quickly because of the choices of fresh goods rather than frozen foods. There are numerous choices among frozen foods as well. The demand for healthy frozen dinners and other meals has increased along with demands for more variety in frozen food offerings. Any frozen food aisle in any supermarket will show as many healthy food options and poor choices. The decision is up to the individual.

People can either choose to eat a healthy diet or an unhealthy one. Time and availability of healthy choices are no longer problems for a person who is trying to eat better and healthier foods.

• Apply dollops of icing in the corners and in the middle of the cake.
• Make sure the knife only touches the frosting part and not the cake.

Wine: Cabernet Cowboy
wine

Meet a Cabernet cowboy named Jack. He rides the range in Monterrey County, on the 700-acre Galante family cattle ranch and vineyard in Carmel Valley, admiring the rows of vines that produce his estate grown Galante Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and other premium varietals.


Jack Galante comes from a long line of historical Carmel residents, including his great grandfather J. F. Devendorf who founded the town of Carmel and later built the historic Highlands Inn. Since the beginning, when the Galante ranch was planted with grapes in 1983 to the development of the winery in 1994, Galante Vineyards has been rounding-up awards and accolades nationwide for their top-notch reds, to become recognized as one of the premier cabernet producers in Monterey County.

As a native Texan, I was immediately drawn to Jack and his partner Dawn, for their down-to-earth, cowboy style all blue jeans, boots and big smiles. But beyond the Texas charm are bold wines that speak for themselves, revealing hints of the heat of Carmel Valley with layers of fruit and earth.

Jack believes quality fruit is the secret to great wines. Our philosophy is to grow the finest grapes possible and let them speak for themselves through the wine. He points out that the extreme temperatures of the upper Carmel Valley (Cachagua) result in a long growing season with extraordinary hang time, producing cabernet sauvignon grapes that ripen slowly for intense, rich wines.

Seek out a bottle of the 1998 Galante Red Rose Hill Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is aptly named, rising above a field of crimson roses, among the thousands of rose bushes growing on the ranch today. The wine itself is bold and rich in color, with a burst of dark berry and cherry fruits and medium tannins for a single-vineyard Cab that drinks well now, and should improve with age through 2008. Or sample the 1999 Rancho Galante, a vineyard blend of nice fruit, soft tannin that is easy drinking and pairs well with chicken, pork or beef.

As we head off into the sunset, Jack leaves us with a Galante Vineyards cowboy philosophy to remember, “Never follow good wine with water…unless you’re out of good wine.”

Bar-stools: Buying Full Metal Or Partially Metal Bar Stools
bar-stools

When ever you hear of metal bar stools, you think either standard bar stools with backrests stools with metal legs and swivel seats, or bar stools made entirely from metal with basic seats. The difference is significant, because each has advantages and disadvantages. This all depends on what the bar stools are to be used for.


Ordinary bar stools that boast metal legs with cushioned swivel seating and are set up in all kinds of settings. They are what many of us think of when we envisage early fifties cafes with stools at their bars. The seats are often vinyl. This type of bar stool is great in a retro diner or in your home or game room.

Then there are bar stool completely made from metal. These are in general made of aluminium or stainless steel. They usually have back rests, but no arms. These bar stools are very good where a heavy use of the said bar stools are expected to be used. The all metal bar stools are not the best looking stools in the world, but they don’t serve a very good purpose and being completely made of metal they are a lot cheaper to make and therefore to purchase.

Other than their bland look, one other possible disadvantage of choosing completely a metal bar stool is that the bar stool seats have no cushioning. If you have guests seated in them for more any length of time, they will find it quite uncomfortable. No one likes to sit for long on something hard and cold for very long as comfort is very important.

One solution to this problem is to buy some soft cushions can be tied to the stool or to the back rest of the bar stool. This will make people more comfortable and you will have absolute charge over the colours and patterns, making it far easier to blend the bar stools with the rest of the rooms back drop. One point to think about, the cushion on the bar stool will slide about the seat or back rest a lot so it would be a good idea to add Velcro strips or tie ropes to keep the cushions in place.

If you do choose metal bar stools, pay meticulous attention to the type of metal used. Aluminium is light, so if you expect to be moving the bar stools around a lot, that’s your best option. If, on the other hand, you anticipate keeping the bar stools in more or less the same place, stainless steel or wrought iron is often the more stylish material, even though it’s a lot heavier.

Bar-Stools: Buying A Chrome Bar Stool What To Know Before Hand
bar-stools

Chrome bar stools are an excellent pick for business-related and domicile settings. Any bar, restaurant or night club that has a mostly metal or shiny interior wood look absolutely superb with a collection of chrome bar stools. Chrome bar stools also set off colourful design schemes, mainly pastels and dark, rich colours.


Most chrome bar stools come with a variety of colour seats they attribute black, raspberry, or some other deep colour to counterbalance the shimmering chrome. This style of bar stool does not typically incorporate seatbacks, but if you are determined enough you can find them easily. Swivel seats for a chrome bar stool are also the standard.
A good point to remember when considering buying a chrome bar stool is they don’t rust.

For places of industry this is exceptionally useful for when drinks get knocked over or cleaning of the stools need to be carried out, this could facilitate rust on an ordinary stool. The same applies to chrome bar stools found in the home, if the bar stools are in the kitchen say, then the legs could get a good soaking from kids spilling juice and stuff.

Another key advantage to a chrome bar stool is its durability and strength; this is of course a huge advantage for industry as stools get knocked about a lot as well in the home if you have kids.

When deciding on your bar stool from a dealer or store, be sure to sure to ask them what the bar stool is constructed of underneath the chrome.

There are 2 prime materials you are looking for, 1 is tempered steel or hardened aluminium, stainless steel will work as good but nowhere near as long standing. Copper or any other malleable soft metals will also reduce the long-term durability of the stool.
When you think about the construction of the bar stool there are several stool style u may like.

The classic chrome bar stools have no back rest, a swivel mechanism and vinyl cover, and two rings holding the four legs in position. These stools have many commercial uses, but can also add style to your home bar or game room.

If a more modern look is preferred, try pyramid style chrome bar stools. These feature legs that are angled to join the seat at one point in the centre of the seat’s bottom. It’s a futuristic look that goes well with many decors

Food: Buy A Chocolate Fountain
food

Some people (with little vision or desire to entertain) would be forgiven for wondering why anyone would want to buy a chocolate fountain? It all depends. If you are the type of person who invites people around then rations the food and drink and expects your guests to like it or lump it, then perhaps it’s not for you. (I’ve certainly been to those kind of parties, where the hosts were so mean you were searching for takeout on the way home!)


However if you are a generous host or hostess who wants to really send your guests away happy, then the thought that you might buy a chocolate fountain won’t seem so strange to you. Sure, the sort of person who wants to show off would also want to buy a chocolate fountain for their next party, but there’s nothing wrong with trying to make an impression on your guests.

Entertaining is just that – it’s your turn to make sure that your guests are amused, fed and watered to the very best of your ability. You might want to buy a chocolate fountain if you are planning a grand party like a wedding reception, or a retirement party or special birthday. Conversely you might want a fountain just to make a small, intimate party have that “wow” factor which will put a smile on the face of your guests.

Imagine if at dessert time at the end of a dinner party you produced a chocolate fountain and a big dish of strawberries? How great would that be? If you go ahead and buy a chocolate fountain you won’t regret it because you can use it in so many different circumstances. Once you’ve used it once, you can rest assured your guests will be hoping to see it again, so it’s probably best to buy a chocolate fountain rather than rent.

In order to obtain a fountain you can try Party Rental firms who might be selling off used ones, try a manufacturer, try local party good suppliers and also of course surf the internet in search of the bargain you really want when you go to buy a chocolate fountain.

Whiskey: Bushmills Irish Whiskey
whiskey

Bushmills
Driving along the spectacular Antrim coast you can just tell that this is good whiskey-making country. Soft pasture land, small rivers, natural harbours and a people who know that good things take time. It’s a land where legend and fact become easily blurred, where folk tales take on the mantle of truth. Who knows when whiskey was first made here?


Some historians claim it started in 1276, though if the story of monks taking distilling with them when they went to convert the heathen Picts is true, it could be as far back at the 6th century. Authorization was given for whiskey to be legally made in the county in 1608, allowing Bushmills to claim that it has been making the stuff since then – and laying the foundations for some mighty craic in 2008!

Bushmills is significantly different to the other two Irish distilleries and takes you back to a time when all of Ireland’s whiskey only came from pot stills. There again, this being Ireland, it’s also atypical of the traditional Irish pot-still style insofar as it doesn’t use a mix of malted and unmalted barley. But it’s not quite like a typical Scottish malt distillery as it uses triple distillation and unpeated malt – though so do Auchentoshan and Springbank’s Hazelburn.

It’s a complex process, as master distiller David Quinn explains. ‘After distilling the low wines in the second [or feints] still we take the strong feints forward to a third distillation which gives us a distillate at around 84%ABV. The weak feints get recycled in the second distillation with the head and tails from the third. What we’re doing is leaving behind the heavier aspects of the spirit and shifting the flavour balance to more fragrant, lighter, sweeter fruity character’.

The distillery is only a few miles from the Giant’s Causeway, a weird outcrop of hexagonal basalt pillars that look like a monstrous pipe organ which, legend would have it, was the southern end of a bridge linking Ireland with Fingal’s Cave on the Hebridean island of Staffa. In many ways Bushmills is a modern day bridge between two whisk(e)y-making cultures. ‘There’s a lot of the tradition of Irish pot still whiskey making here,’ says David. ‘But by being a single malt we’re moving into the Scottish tradition. Maybe we can claim that we take the best of both traditions! On a good day we can see Islay, it’s only 16 miles, so that link has always been there – maybe starting with monks like St. Columba’. In more recent times, ex-manager Frank McHardy nipped across the sea to Campbeltown’s Springbank distillery – no surprise he’s behind the triple distilled, unpeated Hazelburn!

Where Bushmills differs from any Scottish distillery is by being home to blends as well as single malts – most importantly the magnificent Black Bush, a blend of 5Oper cent Bushmills single malt and grain from Midleton. Bushmills follows the Irish Distillers’ policy of using a high percentage of first-fill sherry and Bourbon wood, both of them wood types packed with powerful flavours. The fact that David’s light distillate isn’t drowned out by these big flavours is testimony to some high-class blending skills.

‘Getting the correct balance is vital. You could argue that with a delicate spirit it’s even more vital that you get that flavour in correct balance with the wood. It also means we have to have top-quality wood. You can spend all the time in the world making a good distillate and then lose it by using sub­standard cooperage.’ This shows best in the Triple Wood, a single malt initially aged in ex-Bourbon and sherry wood for 16 years before the two elements are married together and then recasked into port pipes for up to a year. Innovative, modern, yet in touch with the past – just like David and his team.

TASTING NOTES

Black Bush
Sweet, toffee-like nose with plenty of sherry notes in evidence. The palate is silky and soft, balancing ripe malt, raisined sherry wood and rich fruitiness

Bushmills 10-year-old
Clean and crisp, with apple blossom, clover and bran. Lightly creamy on the palate, with some almond paste and gentle grassiness on the finish. Pleasant and soft.

Bushmills Triple Wood
Ripe and full on the nose. A taste of molasses, then some raisin mixed with powerful, plummy fruits. Well balanced

Food: Buffalo Steak Try Something New
food

When looking for something altogether new and unusual to put on the grill, buffalo steak has a familiar flavor that is just unusual enough to make itself memorable. Very similar to beef it has a comforting familiarity. However, it also has a certain something that people notice and will look forward to having again. Which explains why buffalo steak is becoming a popular alternative to beef.


Buffalo steak is usually described as having a sweeter flavor than beef, giving it an enjoyably distinctive taste. It is flavorful without being gamey, it is tender without being greasy, and it can be prepared just like steak. In fact, because buffalos and cows have essentially the same muscle groups, the cuts of meat are the same as you would find with beef. So, when you select a buffalo steak, you will know exactly what to expect from your meal.

However, the flavor is not the only reason to try buffalo steak. In fact, one of the best reasons to try buffalo steak is the fact that it is actually very good for you. Because buffalo is much lower in fat than beef or pork, buffalo steak is much easier on your body than other forms of red meat. Buffalo is remarkably lean for red meat, allowing people to feel much better about their selection of meat. So even the healthy crowd can feel good about choosing buffalo.

In fact, buffalo is so lean that you have to be careful with it when you cook it. Because fat is an insulator, it makes beef cook slowly. But, since buffalo is a very lean animal, the meat is very low in fat and, therefore, much healthier. Which also means that you need to be careful cooking a buffalo steak, since it will cook much faster than beef. So you should always be careful with buffalo on the grill or in the oven.

While the low fat and low cholesterol of buffalo steak is attractive, modern concerns about meat make buffalo even more attractive. Because buffalo graze on the free range, they are not as susceptible to mad cow disease as, let’s say, cows. This is because buffalo are allowed to go out onto the prairies and eat grass like normal herbivores, rather than eat cow renderings, such as regular cattle. And buffalo do not defecate in the streams and ponds where they drink, making them that much more sanitary. And, even more, they don’t require the steroids and antibiotics that cattle require, since buffalo tend to grow much larger than cows and are much more resistant to disease. Thus, buffalo are permitted to grow on their own and don’t require as many chemicals to stay healthy. Which means that buffalo steak is not as filled with chemicals as beef, making it a meat that is almost untainted by modern science.

Admittedly, buffalo steak is not the least expensive meat available. But, when you consider the fact that buffalo is a very healthy, very tasty alternative to beef, it is clearly an alternative worth exploring. So, if you are in the mood to stretch out and try something new, exciting, and well worth the effort, give a buffalo steak a try and see what a difference it can make.
