A Quick Change to the Menu

June 8, 2015 - Author: steph

In recent months, numerous fast food companies have taken the huge debt and ensuring that their menus have only high quality and nutritious ingredients. Among those fast food companies is subway. The sandwich franchise is officially getting rid of artificial ingredients from products on its menu. While subway has marketed itself as one of the fresher and higher quality food chains amongst its competitors, it still has a number of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. Subway executives told the Associated Press that by 2017, all of the Subway chains will have removed artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. Elizabeth Stewart is the director of corporate social responsibility at Subway. Stewart announced that the company’s roast beef, ham, turkey, banana peppers, sauces, and cookies are getting a complete overhaul among other products. The company will also look into requiring only natural ingredients and products from third party sellers. It is predicted that many fast food chains are going to jump on the artificial bandwagon.


For some restaurants its moral decision before the look and feel of the company, as Jim Dondero points out. For Subway this move has more at stake. The chain has then at an unsuccessful decline in the last few years. Consumers are looking for stores to sell more local, natural, and organic substances. While subway is trying its best to keep up, this is one of the moves that the chain hopes can get them out of the red.

Chick-Fil-A In New York City?

March 10, 2015 - Author: steph

Chick-Fil-A fans in New York City are finally going to get their wish this year, as the chain promises to open up there late this summer or early this fall. The restaurant had mentioned opening up there last year but that had fallen through, so hopefully, for New York City residents, this time it is for real. The residents deserve to have access to this tasty restaurant, and the chain better follow through with what they say this time and actually open up in the city. Chick-Fil-A fans like Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG ( to have the restaurant around, and the place is sure to be popular in such a busy city.
I wonder why they didn’t open up sooner, why last year’s promise of opening a restaurant fell through? There have to be many fans of Chick-Fil-A in New York City eagerly waiting for the restaurant to open up so that they can finally purchase their favorites whenever they feel the urge to do so. Here’s to hoping that their wish is finally granted this year.

Eggs are Safe?

February 20, 2015 - Author: steph

Through the years there has always been those who love to eat eggs, and then there have been those who like to claim that eating eggs is not good for our bodies. It has been said that eating eggs raises ones cholesterol and makes one unhealthy. We have been told to limit the amount of eggs that we eat in a day or in a week, and we have usually listened to his advice. A new panel that came out now, though, suggests that eggs might not actually be bad for a person. This panel suggests that what we have been told all along might actually be wrong.
Bruce Karatz feels it seems that the cholesterol in eggs might not be the same as the cholesterol in our bodies that wreaks havoc. It seems that this information might have been off for years. Eggs create a different kind of cholesterol, and this cholesterol just might be safe for consumption. We may not have to limit the amount of eggs in our diet, after all.

Carl’s Jr. Introduces the First All-Natural Fast Food Burger

December 12, 2014 - Author: steph

Carl’s Jr. is known for serving its customers colossal burgers. And now, the fast food chain will be the first to offer an all-natural burger for picky eaters who love a good burger every once in a while.

The beef patty used for the burger is made from meat that is free of steroids, hormones, and antibiotics. The beef is also organic which gives it the approval of many health practices and clinics,  namely the Amen Clinic. The burger will be available at all 1,150 Carl’s Jr. locations, and will be the most expensive quarter pounder on the menu, at $6.99.

Carl’s Jr. asserts that the meat used for the burgers is imported from Australia, where there is a large supply of grass-fed beef. This is the same place restaurant chains such as Chipotle get their steak from.

The restaurant doesn’t want to be slapped with a lawsuit by calling the burger “natural” based on Carl’s Jr. definition alone. So, the restaurant asserts that the hamburger is natural according to USDA standards. The natural burger is 760 calories.

Cutest Cooks On Television

December 3, 2014 - Author: steph

Gordon Ramsey is known for his over-the-top antics when it comes to chefs trying to show him that they have what it takes to make it in his kitchen. To the amazement of all watching Gordon’s new show, Master Chef Junior, something extraordinary occurred.

As each of the contestants, most of which could not even see over the counter prepared dish for the master chef to judge himself, it was 12-year-old Logan took the spotlight. This tropper prepared rice and steak. Lee G. Lovett says the problem was that the rice was not flavored properly and even though is steak seemed to be prepared correctly, his plate was just too lackluster.

With that said, Gordon laid the hammer down. To his surprise, Logan began to cry at what he had been told. To everyone’s astonishment, the usually brutally-honest chef showed a side of himself nobody has ever seen giving Logan a hug and telling him it was going to be okay. Obviously Gordon scored big points for this gesture of kindness. He might even be initiated to knighthood.

Eating Healthy With Health Bucks

- Author: steph

To assist Alaijah Borden in lowering her weight, a pediatrician at Harlem Hospital Center enrolled the 10-year-old into the Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program (FVRx). The young girl’s mother, Sheryl Brown, joined her daughter in eating healthier foods to regain control of her high blood pressure. Thanks to FVRx, both mother and daughter were successful in their goals. Their success stories add to the many other success stories in this experimental and developing program.

FVRx provides low-income families with Health Bucks, which are redeemable for fresh produce at farmers’ markets and valued at double the amount of food stamps. Along with Health Bucks, FVRx members receive nutritional information and healthy recipes. Ending obesity and its resulting health issues is the program’s main goal. And the program, which the nonprofit organization Wholesome Wave created, serves to aid the unemployed and minimum-wage workers eat foods that are normally outside of their income levels. This won’t benefit those with good jobs like Brian Torchin, but those people are usually able to eat healthier anyway.

Based on the information in this article, another nonprofit organization has created a program to serve both the needy and the lazy. Surely some families will benefit from this new program, receiving needed help during a troubled economy, especially when incomes are hard to find and earn. Unfortunately, others who refuse to work, or even to look for work, will use FVRx to eat what other families work hard to eat. Hopefully pediatricians screen families carefully before enrolling the children.

Girl Scouts To Bless The Internet With Cookies

December 2, 2014 - Author: steph

There is some wonderful news on the horizon for longtime fans of the Girl Scout’s special brand of cookie magic. Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. officially announced its plans to open up the “Digital Cookie” platform for its Girl Scouts to market and sell cookies to the Internet population. Until now, the organization has refused to open its mind and freshly baked cookies to online vendors.

Don’t expect to go to to find Girl Scout cookies, though. Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. are keeping a close eye on the digital sale and distribution of the products so that the money earned goes to the organization and the girls who put their time and effort into selling the cookies each year.

There are more than two-million Girl Scouts who sell cookies each year, and Brian Torchin usually buys at least a few boxes. A box of Thin Mints or other fan favorites go for about $4 a box in all locations. There is no official word yet on what shipping will cost people if they order online or if the organization will provide free shipping on the cookies, but the regular price is set to remain about the same.

The hope is that by opening up the Digital Cookie platform, Girl Scouts will learn more about what it takes to run a business online. It’s very different than simply going door to door. They will be taught how to market and learn more about how e-commerce works.

Autumn Entrees: Pasta With Goat Cheese and Radichhio

November 19, 2014 - Author: steph

Hearty meals that contain greens and goat cheese are fitting for the autumn season. A pasta dish that includes goat cheese and radicchio has significant amounts of protein and essential vitamins such as vitamin C. Goat cheese is also suitable for individuals who are intolerant to lactose.

Penne pasta is best for a dish that features radicchio and goat cheese. The greens should be seasoned with olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes to balance the bitter taste of radicchio. Salt and chives can also be used to season the pasta dish.

While the dish is suitable for vegetarians, it can be adjusted to suit a number of diets. Adding grilled chicken to the pasta entree adds more protein and B vitamins to the dish. Replacing the goat cheese with mushrooms or bell peppers makes the dinner suitable for vegans. Pasta with radicchio and goat cheese is also a suitable side dish for Thanksgiving, and can easily be paired with turkey and gravy.

Be sure to send me any links to Vimeo or YouTube of the foods you’re cooking this Thanksgiving. I’m looking forward to what Darius Fisher and some of my other friends have up their sleeves this year.
