25 Simple and Easy Quinoa Recipes

General, Health and Wellness, Weight Loss

Quinoa is often called a “superfood,” but you can think of it as a hard-working everyday staple for your healthy recipes.

Quinoa (say it “keen-wah”) is considered a whole grain, although it’s technically a seed. Like other SmartCarbs, it’s high in fiber and low in calories. According to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a half-cup serving also fuels you up with four grams of protein—in fact, it’s one of the few plant foods that’s a “complete” protein, including all nine essential amino acids.1

Quinoa has a chewy texture and a lightly nutty flavor that blends well with many other ingredients. It comes in different colors, including red, white, yellow and even black.

Quinoa is the perfect swap for rice in your recipes...

General

This post originally appeared on December 11, 2020:

Dolly Parton is one of the most distinct beauty icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, and understandably, fans have long pleaded for the singer-songwriter, philanthropist, and philosopher (yeah, I said it) to launch her own  beauty line. Give us Dolly makeup, they cry. Bless us with Parton press-on nails, they beg. A ray of hope broke through the clouds when she recently told Allure, “Someday, I’m gonna have my own line of wigs and hair pieces.” So needless to say, we’ve been eagerly anticipating an official announcement. Meanwhile, we are waiting for Dolly’s soon promised fragrance to arrive.

Well, an official announcement has, in fact, been made, but Dolly Parton’s big foray into the beauty biz isn’t the hair, makeup, or nail collect...

Healthy Pets Healthy Humans

So what do we do when our animals can’t stomach their dog food any longer? What does it mean when they are getting sick from kibble?  Everything else looks fine according to the veterinarian, yet a bland diet may be recommended she said. So that belies the question, what is good for my dog to eat, and what would not be good to feed my beloved canine?

At this point I was determined not to go back to the kibble. Kibble was first developed in 1945 by Purina. It has been shown to be a problem for animals over that time, and some people do believe it leads to animals having various illnesses such as cancer. Research from the University of Helsinki would say an affirmative to that statement...

Anti-Aging, Diseases, General

There’s a caregiver crisis out there that almost no one is talking about.

According to the California Master Plan for Aging, recently released by the California Dept. of Aging, nearly five million Californians are unpaid family caregivers, helping their parents, spouses, and friends who need assistance with everyday tasks to live well in their homes and communities. Of these, almost 1.7 million are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia

Those caregiver numbers will only increase alongside the growing number of aging Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. By 2030, 10.8 million Californians will be an older adult (60+), making up one-quarter of the state’s population – and many of those individuals will need caregiving help.

Face Mask Sensor to Detect COVID-19

Diseases, General, Good products - Bad products

Our breath holds a multitude of biomarkers, including potentially those indicating the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Those infected with the virus are prone to exhale proteases, enzymes that speed up the breakdown of proteins, related to the new virus. This has led researchers at University of California, San Diego to work on developing a wearable sensor that can be attached to masks to detect the presence of these proteases and therefore the COVID-19 virus.

“In many ways, masks are the perfect ‘wearable’ sensor for our current world,” said Jesse Jokerst, professor of nanoengineering at UC San Diego, who is the lead researcher of this project, in a press release...
