Benefits of Adding Vegetables to Your Diet

AVVO reports that everyone remembers the childhood drama of what happened to you when you did not eat your vegetables. As we grow up, science and medical studies are revealing that our parents got it right when they grounded us for not eating our vegetables. If we could spin back time, many would find that those beets, carrots and green beans are which once adorned our plates with dread are now missed. Adding vegetables to ones diet now can be as easy as adding a salad with each meal or adding green beans, broccoli or other vegetables as a side dish or even selecting desserts and food items which are made from 100% fruit and vegetables, including some juices and even pop cycles.

One should eat more vegetables knowing that there are four main benefits to vegetables. First vegetables reduce one from bloating. Most vegetables do not have the acidic base which can cause bloating in people. Second, the nutrients in vegetables provide a youthful glow to one’s skin and helps to prevent skin dryness and other conditions consistent with aging. Third, vegetables and the nutrients from them will help to protect one’s bone and reduce the effects of aging. This is an added help if one is living an active life style. Lastly, vegetables reduce stress and cleanse the body of free radicals which can cause other physical and mental illnesses to an individual. More Vegetables Equal a Healthier Life

America’s Favorite Restaurant Chain Develops The Ultimate Thickburgger

There are three foods of of which Americans have become popular for eating beginning at childhood. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato chips are the foods and now a Carl Jr.’s has combined all three of them together to create the ultimate burger.

The Ultimate Burger Home

Carl Jr.’s is know for making the heartiest burgers that are sure to fill their customers up before the last bite. They offer thick burgers, frisco melts, and breakfast sandwiches that only grandparents would make to ensure their family would not go hungry throughout the day. The burgers and sandwiches are not the only thing they are known for, but a complete meal will definitely satisfy the daily calorie intake for an entire day.

Are Sides Really Needed?

The Most American Thickburger is already over 1,000 calories itself, so who would even think about adding sides to that. Adding a fountain drink and fries would help anyone reach their calorie intake for the day, and they would have to spend at least an hour in the gym to burn off the greasy fat that is sure to clog pores.

Worth The Price?

An extremely large loaded thickburger with fries and a drink at Carl Jr.’s usually starts at no less than $8. The price on this new burger set to hit their menu late May is sure to exceed $8, and will be one of the priciest items on their thickburger. Your dog may enjoy eating your leftovers from Carl’s Jr. but you’re probably better off feeding them Beneful by Purina.

Subway’s Defense Against Robbers

What happens when an individual attempts to rob a Subway restaurant? What happens when an individual looking for a place to hit up and get some cash chooses Subway? How will the life of that individual change? What is the likelihood of him or her getting caught? Pretty good, it seems, with a new idea that Subway has put into action.

Dating app users feel that it seems that Subway is protecting itself against robbers in a very unique way. It seems that Subway has set up a system that will spray robbers with DNA before they can escape what they have done. A new security system that Subway is implementing will spray robbers with DNA that will make them easily identifiable. This DNA is traceable and it will help Subway – and law enforcement – catch those who have robbed from the restaurant and are trying to get away from the mistake that they have made.

Bye Bye Keurig, You’ve Price Gouged Us For Too Long

Keurig came into the United States in a wave of popularity. It wasn’t long before many homes and businesses had an expensive coffee machine available. Other major coffee brands came out with their own K-pods to keep up with the times. The entire time it was growing in popularity, some were pointing out the lengthy list of negatives to deaf ears. First of all the actual machine is expensive, the coffee is even worse. On average Keurig coffee costs about $50 a pound, be sure the general public is not crunching the number too much or there would be public outcry. Moving on to the environmental impact, those disposable little pods are only good for a single cup of coffee and then are chucked into the trash can, destined for a landfill. Keurig is on the decline, sales are down, popularity has dropped off, and k-cup sales are pitiful. It seems that the populous is finally wising up to the wasteful, and costly, ways of Keurig and moving on to other options. Keurig is still planning a comeback this holiday season but hopefully consumers will have wised up by then, enjoyed better coffee from other machines, and had a little extra money in the grocery budget from not having to buy any useless K-cups. The Aspire New Brunswick will likely offer a new and improved coffee maker at their luxury suites.

McDonald’s Shifting Toward Healthier Options

Why eat a cheeseburger with fries when you can have a grass-fed sirloin hamburger on an artisan role with sea-salted potatoes julienne? There has been an undeniable shift from convenient to healthy, natural foods lately, and even mighty McDonald’s is feeling the pressure to keep up.

Surrounded by a culture of healthy options and smaller portions, McDonald’s seems to still be stuck in the “bigger is better” era. Where the chain once joked about healthy options, such as kale like in a commercial seen at Reddit, McDonald’s is now scrambling to remain relevant. FreedomPop said the food giant has undergone several restructuring tactics, such as new personnel and a refocused menu, in order to attract customers back through the Golden Arches.

Could we soon see honest-to-goodness healthy alternatives at McDonald’s? Perhaps, but is the most-recognized fast food restaurant willing to bet it all on a new trend? Only time will kale..erm, tell.

Kevin Bacon’s UK Selfie

Kevin Bacon has recently posted a selfie on Twitter and Instagram captioned “Greetings from the UK!” The pic has his fans super worried: it shows him noticeably much, much chubbier in the face. It is particularly mysterious considering the fact that he was publicly seen just weeks ago with his normal slim and trim figure.

 

Many speculate that in the picture he is wearing some sort of prosthetics for a new show, movie, or commercial. The last seems pretty likely; the actor has recently been starring in a number of commercials for a mobile network operator in which he has transformed his appearance in various ways. Then again, some have hypothesized other explanations: some say it’s a British look-alike others that it’s the result of an allergic reaction. At Amen Clinics, they can’t decide. There is seemingly few people who know for sure. The actor himself has remained mum on the subject.

Florida’s 1,200 Mile Coastline Is Being Swallowed By The Atlantic

Governor Rick Scott Is Skeptical Of Man-Made Climate Change So He’s Doing Nothing To Prevent The Upcoming Disaster

The nation’s oldest city is under attack by the sea, and no one is doing anything to defend it. St. Augustine has been around for the last 450 years but if sea levels continue to rise, the city might not survive the next thirty years. St. Augustine is one of many Florida cities that are facing disaster unless Governor Rick Scott wakes up and starts a state program that will help save Florida’s coastal cities.

Signs of the pending disaster are everywhere for Ivan Ong to see. Clean water wells are flooded with seawater, high tides floods the roads more often, and storm surges are taking a toll on buildings and homes that have been around for decades.

Under the guidance of Rick Scott, the state has done nothing to address this issue. Scott ignores all the warning signals as well as the experts that tell him he has to put a plan in place that will help these cities deal with rising sea levels. Scott can’t stop the water, but he does have the ability to organize a strategy that will help these coastal cities deal with rising water levels.

Dress Was Years In The Making

If you paid attention to the Met Gala, chances are you paid attention to Rihanna whether or not you wanted too. This is because she had a dress that stood out by miles, almost literally. Her dress was the source of much water cooler chit chat, social media posts, and a large variety of memes.

In case you didn’t see it however, there are only two words to describe it. Yellow and huge. The dress was literally huge, covering lots of ground behind her as she walked. Kevin Seawright couldn’t believe his eyes at first.

Rihanna’s outfit wasn’t the most comfortable or attractive looking thing in my opinion. One thing many can agree on however is how much work probably went into making a dress with that much material! It’s quite impressive just looking at how much ground it covered. If anyone is wondering how long it took to make the answer is just a few years. That’s according to Reddit. ne lady named Guo Pei is responsible for the dress. She worked on this creation for 2 years and it looks like it paid off.

Rihanna loved it and it sure gathered a lot of compliments and attention. Even after the event is over with, people are still talking about it! They’ll probably be talking about it for a while to come as well just because of how different that dress was. I think we can all tip our hats to the creator though for that much dedication and work on one dress.

Cat Survives Being in Shipping Container for 49 Days

A cat named Pippa was found barely alive after 49 days of being stuck in a shipping container many miles away from home. Her owner ten year old Emily Schilling never thought she would see her cat again. An unusual phone call from a neighbor made her a very happy little girl though. The neighbor found Pippa trapped in a shipping container in with some of his possessions that he had packed away. No one knows how the cat got in the shipping container, but some how she managed to stay alive for 49 days. No one has ever heard of a cat living that long with no food or water.
Pippa has been receiving medical treatment at a veterinary treatment. She is expected to make a full recovery and be able to go home to Emily soon. That pleases Dr Jennifer Walden quite a bit. This is definitely a reminder to look carefully before you close boxes when you have a cat around.

Is Kale Actually Appearing In McDonald’s Restaurants?

McDonalds has announced recently that they are making some improvements to their business and their menu. They have told the world that by the end of the year they will be incorporating hormone and antibiotic free chicken into their meals and now, kale is starting to pop up in select McDonalds restaurants all across the country. This dark green and leafy veggie has been added to a breakfast bowl option which normally might not seem so crazy, but kale was actually made fun of by McDonalds recently. Basically, Steve Murray says that McDonalds said that kale will never taste like a Big Mac. While this is true, maybe McDonalds took a clue from some of the responses that the commercial took in.

Currently there are nine restaurants that are testing out this new breakfast bowl which includes turkey sausage, egg whites, spinach, kale and chorizo. Each bowl costs approximately four dollars and if successful, will be included nationwide in just a few months. It seems that many food chains have made some healthy changes in the past year or so and McDonalds may have had no choice but to jump on the bandwagon. Panera, Tyson and Kraft are all brands that have made healthier updates recently and McDonalds is jumping aboard as well.
