All about good grub thats good for you

Face the Flax

It is time to finally face the flax. So many foods brag about how they include ‘flax’ and it is sort of getting annoying. I finally decided to try and figure all this flax craziness out and determine if this is just another dumb trend like the overuse of acai, that preys on the health […]

Corn Cornfusion

I was running through a mall in India a few weeks ago and came across this craziness…A stand selling ‘Steamed American Corn’. Last time I checked, my passport has me identified as an American, yet I have never heard of ‘American’ corn before. I have seen plenty of stalls selling popcorn and I have enjoyed […]

Japan: Land of Food Perfection

Japan makes me jealous! After working for several days there I quickly became spoiled with by the pristine perfection of every bite I ate. The quality, the presentation and the attention to every miniscule detail was ridiculously amazing.  After returning back home to the FedUp HQ in good-ole-America, I longed for the tasty treats I […]

Be a Macgyver

The situation: It’s zero-three-hours since our plane was supposed to depart. We are now officially stuck in transport-limbo. We were all herded off the plane and  imprisoned  in the Paris airport lounge.  We are all anxiously waiting for our flight to be ‘green-lighted.’ My fellow would-be-passengers are getting combative, as the clock slowly passes lunch […]

Guard Your Nuts!

WTF…WHERE ARE ALL THE CHESTNUTS?!? Chestnuts, dried and vacuum sealed are a staple in many European grocery stores. And I see the all them time in Asia (this includes a Hong Kong 7 Eleven where their own store-brand packets were being sold). They are usually meant to be added to recipes and I have come […]

I was tired, cranky, and hungry. I was traveling for business, and after a busy day all I wanted to do was head to my hotel room at the Hilton in downtown Atlanta. Atlanta’s downtown is depressingly bleak when it comes to decent restaurants. There are a few options that will satisfy you, but long […]

Dicey Topic

I love squash. Acorn, butternut, spaghetti , kabocha …all types of squash are cool by me. Roasted squash not only provides a tender-sweet taste and puts me in the winter holiday spirit, but it is also freaking healthy. The problem is that ‘Winter Squash’, squash types with a hard inedible outer skin, are a pain […]

Thanksgiving Leftover Awesomeness: The best use for eveything you wish you could have eaten on Thanksgiving

Leftovers seem to get a bad rap all the time…often times they are exiled to the far corners of the fridge in hopes of being  forgotten about and tossed out once they develop a trash-worthy layer of mold. And I agree, fresh is almost always better, but random bits from previous meals do have their […]
