You're More Likely To Get Sick At A Restaurant Than In Your Own Kitchen You're More Likely To Get Sick At A Restaurant Than In Your Own Kitchen
One of my favorite memories as a kid was sitting down to home cooked food by my mom or grandma after a long day at school or playing outside. Flash forward about a decade and as close as I get to cooking is microwaving a frozen pizza. My diet, like many people in their 20s, has a hell of a lot of fast food and take out. But maybe there's a reason to skip dining out besides the high price and calorie count.

How McDonald's Actually Makes Their McNuggets How McDonald's Actually Makes Their McNuggets
Food myths abound on the internet, and in life. Everyone has theories and “did you hear?” exclamations about a bountiful amount of misinformation. McDonald’s, being the biggest fast food chain, is the target of many of these claims. Some are true, some are trueish, and some are just false.

McDonald's Plans Move To Sustainable Beef Practices By 2016 McDonald's Plans Move To Sustainable Beef Practices By 2016
While the move has to be seen as a positive, it should be noted that there’s no real consensus on what it means to be sustainable beef. SoMcDonald’s has turned to the Global Conference on Sustainable Beef to help research what can be qualified as sustainable.

Burger King Rolls Out New Lower Calorie French Fries Burger King Rolls Out New Lower Calorie French Fries
Trends in fast food have added healthier items to the menu in the last few years, with fresh fruit, yogurt and more being added to fast food menus. The staples of the fast food diet are still mostly burgers and fries, though, so instead of steering kids toward apple slices as a side dish, Burger King is taking the unlikely route of trying to make the company’s French fries healthier in order to entice new users.

Most British Children Don't Know Where Tuna Comes From Most British Children Don't Know Where Tuna Comes From
There’s a reason nine-year-olds aren’t typically on trivia game shows, and that reason is, on the whole, they’re pretty stupid. With only partially formed brains and way less total years of accruing knowledge under their belts, they just can’t compete with even reasonably intelligent adults, let alone well-educated ones. For evidence of that, look no further than a recent study in which one thousand British children between the ages of 7 and 11 were asked a series of food-related questions. Not surprisingly, they didn’t do so well.

Valerie Bertinelli Talks Food Addiction, Keeping The Weight Off Valerie Bertinelli Talks Food Addiction, Keeping The Weight Off
The woman has been a master of losing weight, dropping over 40 lbs. with the Jenny Craig program. Mastering such a challenge would have been nearly impossibly in the past. The actress openly admits to low self-worth and says that both drugs and a bad relationship with food made it hard for her to stay healthy, both physically and spiritually. One was an easier habit to refine than the other, however.

What Classic Thanksgiving Food Is The Most Overrated? What Classic Thanksgiving Food Is The Most Overrated?
No holiday has more food expectations than Thanksgiving. You can invite people over for Christmas and not have cookies. You can have an Easter gathering at your house without ham or a 4th of July party without hot dogs, but if you volunteer to host Thanksgiving and fail to supply turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and either mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, you will be treated as a poor excuse for a human being. Really, that’s only the bare bones requirements too.

Even without the frills, patty melts apparently attack people's hearts with a reckless abandon, unleashing a whopping seven hundred or more calories.

Red Band Rant: Why Movie Popcorn Is The Worst Red Band Rant: Why Movie Popcorn Is The Worst
We now live in a world where music exists in a cloud and shampoo can be purchased at the same store as a Blu-Ray. That smells like success to me.

Popular Spanish Restaurant El Bulli To Close Popular Spanish Restaurant El Bulli To Close
I was a hotel and restaurant major for all over ten weeks. Well, okay, two years; but in that time I only took one class. I had about as much desire to work in foods as I did to wear a Dodgers hat while swinging a rally monkey; in other words, I’d rather be dead. This was in part due to the fear that I would make no money and work far too much; of course I then proceeded to move into journalism, so laugh at your own leisure.
