Amazon has scared grocers — and others — the world over – Axios: “Be smart: That’s why it seems best to ignore forecasts that Amazon will dramatically change Whole Foods culture, its fare, and operating style. Instead, he will want to embrace Whole Foods high-end quality brand, and hope it washes over onto cut-rate Amazon reputation.”
Don’t have a restaurant nearby? Don’t want to walk 5 blocks, wait 10 minutes, spend $10??
With a little planning, a pantry, and a freezer you can have my version of soup called “Lazy-Man Brand Noodle Soup”.
Acquire the following
- favorite flavor pho cube (go ahead, sound it out)
- Green Dragon (or other) wheat/egg noodle pack
- frozen stir-fry vegetables
Get out the wok. Boil 1 liter of water. Add pho cube to dissolve. Dump in 2 servings of noodles. Cook 3 minutes.
Dump the noodles to a big bowl. Wipe out the wok. Heat it back up with some oil.
Dump in the veggies and cook for about 5 minutes, stir a lot.
Dump the noodle soup back in to the wok. Heat and stir for a minute.
Voila. 10 minutes. About 250 calories per person, 500 if you eat the whole thing (good luck).
Add some used chicken, pork, beef, fresh tofu, whatever if you need extra protein.
We’ve all know how much Philly loves its cheesesteaks. But you know what the data tells us? The most distinctive menu item in Pennsylvania restaurants isn’t the cheesesteak. It’s actually the hoagie.
In a 2009 report to Congress, Access to Affordable and Nutritious Food: Measuring and Understanding Food Deserts and Their Consequences, ERS outlined a number of ways to measure how many people have limited access to food and how many live in low-income areas with limited access. The report used 1-kilometer (km) square grids as the base geographic unit of analysis, measuring distance from the nearest source of healthy foods. Grids outside of a specified distance from a food source were designated as low access areas (separate markers for low access were used for rural and urban areas). Grids with high concentrations of low-income individuals received particular attention.
On the PBS website for the muckraking documentary King Corna film that roundly attacks industrial agriculturethe following declaration is made: Before WW II, most Americans had never eaten corn-fed beef. This claim, which has become a mantra in sustainable agriculture, is more often than not dispatched to rally support for grass-fed beefa supposedly healthier and more environmentally sound way to feed cattlewhich is to say, in accordance with the rhythms of nature rather than the time clock of industry.
