    Acquiring full range of proteins easy with plant foods

    A while ago, I was talking to a former home economics teacher who said she was frustrated by all the emphasis on plant-based diets which are increasingly popular as we realise how raising livestock and eating meat contributes to climate change. Twenty years ago or so she used to teach that only meat, dairy and eggs could provide “high quality protein” and she felt that people on plant-based diets would be missing out on good nutrition. I pondered this for a while and asked Assoc Prof Anne-Louise Heath, of the human nutrition department at the University of Otago, whether thinking   Read More

    Love Bacon? Heres An Easy Hack To Make It Vegan-Friendly

Given that animal products are known to be high in saturated fat and cholesterol, it is no surprise that veganism is catching on as it is known to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. However, if you are making a switch to veganism after being a hardcore non-vegetarian all your life, it can be extremely difficult to adjust to the diet in the beginning.   Read More

    PORTLAND, Maine — As Portland diners have sought safer ways to gobble up local cuisine than sitting inside restaurants, they’ve increasingly turned to food trucks and other mobile kitchens.

    How to Make Poached Salmon the Easy Way

    A perfectly cooked piece of fish is a thing of beauty, but nailing it can be tricky. That’s why I’m a big fan of shallow poaching, a forgiving and foolproof technique that yields perfectly cooked fillets every time. The method, which involves briefly tenting the fish under a simple circle of parchment paper called a cartouche, is easy enough for first-timers to master yet versatile enough to spark inspiration for more experienced cooks. To begin, sauté any allium that speaks to you. (I use leeks here, but shallots or spring onions would also be lovely.) Then, add the fish—any mild   Read More

    I went vegetarian for a week, but Penn State didn’t make it easy | Blog | Lifestyle

    Disclaimer: Please listen to your body, educate yourself and talk to a professional if you are looking to completely change your diet. I learned this week that some parmesan cheeses aren’t vegetarian. Never thought of that, huh? Last spring, I wanted to go vegetarian to better myself and my awful diet of gross college food. It lasted for about two weeks, but then spring break hit, and I basically gave up. Then, the coronavirus pandemic started, and I did not really care about what I put into my body. While I was at school during that period last year, I   Read More
