Delicious Heart Health

13 Mar

Health is delicious! NPR interviewed researcher Sheila West, whose Penn State studies have shown that well-spiced food can significantly lower triglycerides. In some cases, triglycerides were decreased by one third. Insulin levels were also lowered by 20%. UCLA cardiologist Dave Ravi says that lowering one’s triglycerides helps lower the risk of metabolic syndrome and heart disease Cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, paprika, rosemary, ginger, oregano, and garlic were all used in the studies.

This has motivated me to invest in a cute spice rack.
And what better spice rack for a science nerd than one made of beakers?


Science has never been so delicious.

Wonder Boobs

7 Mar
I don’t currently own an apron. Or anything much resembling cookware. I’ve been rather timid about cooking since I nearly burned down a retirement home trying to heat up a jar of spaghetti sauce. I was 18 at the time, and it was my very first job. I avoided cooking whenever possible since then, and have slowly started to ease into it with my sunny yellow frying pan and trusty rice cooker.
Today, I found this, and instantly fell in love.

Me: “I need this. I think it would inspire me to cook a lot more.”
Tom: “Ha!”
Me: And it would make my boobs look smaller.”
Tom: “Probably.”
Me: “Better food and reasonable sized boobs. What’s not to love? And all the food would all taste delicious! I mean, how can you make a bad meal when you’re wearing a kick-ass apron like that? It’s just absolutely magical. Your tongue would explode with happiness. I would wear this and nothing else!”
Tom: “That sounds safe.”
