    Holiday appetizers are a budget’s best friend

    Stock photo Corser Christmas is the biggest holiday of the year; it stirs warm feelings within each and every one of us. I have named December the biggest eating month because the invites pile up, and we as individuals consume plate after plate of delicious food and drink. As we know, Thanksgiving is the biggest eating holiday, and UnitedFoodandCommercialWorkers.org says that Super Bowl Sunday is the second largest day for the consumption of food. But, for me and my family, December is the eating frenzy of the year. I want to talk about appetizers – sometimes called small plates –

    Your Heart and Diet: A Heart-Healthy Way to Eat

    Experts have long known that animal products like beef, lamb, pork and veal have a disproportionately negative impact on the environment. Raising animals requires more water and land and generates more greenhouse gases than growing protein-rich plants does. “This is a win-win for individuals and our environment,” Dr. Lichtenstein said. However, she cautioned, if a plant-based diet is overloaded with refined carbohydrates and sugars, it will raise the risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. And she discouraged relying on popular plant-based meat alternatives that are ultra-processed and often high in sodium, unhealthy fats and calories, and that “may

    Village Agricultural Cooperative helps provide healthy food for southeastern Minnesota immigrant communities

    But in Rochester there’s the Village Agricultural Cooperative, which creates opportunities for area communities to grow culturally relevant foods. Most of the growers for the Village Cooperative live in housing where they cannot grow food, or they wish to grow food to sell in local markets but can’t find farmland access. Kim Sin, founder and president of the Village Agricultural Cooperative, realized around 2018 while working with elderly members of the Cambodian community in Rochester, that many of them weren’t eating healthy. The produce they were accustomed to in Cambodia was too expensive to buy in Minnesota, said Sin, especially

    Rachel Roddy’s recipe for dark chocolate and orange tart | Food

    Chocolate and orange zest are two of the more complex flavours whose compatibility is simple. For lovers of Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange, this is her richer, darker, more luxurious cousin, in tart form. I think it’s a star pudding.
