December 31 is National Vinegar Day

Posted on December 31, 2014

Here are today’s five thing to know about Vinegar:

A day to reflect on the years gone by

  1. Vinegar has been used for 10,000 years. It just might be the world’s oldest ingredient.
  2. The main uses for white distilled vinegar are cooking/food preparation and cleaning/disinfecting.
  3. The International Vinegar Museum is in Roslyn, South Dakota.
  4. Consumers in the South buy and use more white distilled vinegar than in any other region of the country.
  5. Adding vinegar to baking soda produces a chemical reaction that produces carbon dioxide. This combination is often used to make a do-it-yourself erupting volcano.

Today’s Food History

  • 1781 John Turberville Needham died. He was an English naturalist, and one of those who believed in the spontaneous generation of life. He boiled some mutton broth, sealed it in glass containers and when he found living organisms present after a few days, he believed they came from nonliving matter. He was wrong – boiling does not destroy all bacterial and fungal spores.

December 29 is National “Get on the Scales Day”

Posted on December 29, 2014

Here are today’s five fitness tips:

  • Instead of eating straight out of the box, pre-portion your snacks into small individual baggies.
  • Skip dessert and instead have a roll in the hay with your honey. Healthy sex may also help control the amount of food you eat.
  • Be sure to stock some red pepper flakes to your pantry. When eaten early in the day, red pepper can reduce the amount of food you consumer later.
  • Many of us hit the gym and eat right during the week but cut loose on the weekends by indulging in fried foods and trading in workouts for sleep. Be healthy seven days a week by planning your weekend ahead of time.
  • Who said healthy foods have to be boring? Puree peaches, pears and berries and spread them on wheat pita for a healthy and delish treat that’s perfect for spring and summer!
