    Wichita YouTuber competes in Food Network cooking boot camp

    Wichita native Chandali Gullick, a YouTuber with over 20,000 views, is the first to admit she’s not a great cook. A kitchen fire and call to the fire department became a running joke in her family after a failed attempt to make lemon pepper chicken in 2018. Now, she’s getting a chance to redeem herself on this season of Food Network’s “Worse Cooks in America.” With help from celebrity chefs Anne Burrell and Carla Hall, Gullick will show the world what she can—or can’t do—in the kitchen. “Anyone can try something they’re not good at for $25,000,” Gullick said.

    A Scary Amount of Nutrition Science Has Deep Ties to The Food Industry, Study Reveals

    The food industry has their fingers all over our nutrition research. According to a new analysis, one out of every eight leading, peer-reviewed studies on nutrition is tied to business.   Even worse, this conflict of interest, although acknowledged explicitly within the scientific journals, tends to produce results that favour business, and potentially with misleading consequences. “This study found that the food industry is commonly involved in published research from leading nutrition journals,” researchers write. “Where the food industry is involved, research findings are nearly six times more likely to be favourable to their interests than when there is no   Read More

    High-Quality Salt Isn’t So Bad For Heart Health, Says An MD

    The reason why salt earned its reputation is because it’s abundant in ultra-processed, industrial foods. “Thats where most of your salt is,” says Lipman. In fact, the American Heart Association (AHA) notes that people consume more than 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day—the recommended amount, for reference, is no more than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day—and most of it comes from processed, pre-packaged food, not what you sprinkle on at the table. Since these processed foods are associated with metabolic dysfunction already (which is linked to heart-related concerns), it makes sense why there’d be a hesitation towards salt. But   Read More

    Wyoming group seeks to improve public access to healthy food

    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Last winter, a group of farmers, educators and economic development professionals gathered on the Casper College campus to discuss what it would take to develop a self-sustaining food network in Wyoming and begin to solve food security issues that have long plagued small communities around the state. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Wyoming — one of the few states in the country without a food council at the time — saw food insecurity rates in the double digits and, despite its agrarian reputation, offered few opportunities for farmers to either reach new markets or even begin   Read More

Sweet potatoes, according to the cooking resource Epicurious, are in the morning glory family. Yams are related to palms and grasses. Yams are native to Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and Central America. Sweet potatoes are grown primarily in the United States, although they were likely brought from Central   Read More
