Hello everyone! A friend of mine wants to do a juice cleanse (with me) and I am a little skeptical! I have a lot of questions and reservations so I am wondering if anyone can give me any information or testimonials. I have read about the perceived benefits everything from improving your immune system and organ functioning to weight loss, but I wonder if it really is beneficial. It seems to me that you would be cleaning out all of the good bacteria in your body; the bacteria that has been determined to be good for your digestion and what not. Furthermore, I wonder if it is really worth the inevitable torture of living off of juices (some of which, let's face it, probably don't taste that good) for a period of time.
I would want to start as small as possible with 3-5 days. I did a little research on what kinds of juices you use and found companies that actually sell the juices pre-made for a whopping $58 a day! That seems steep to me; can I make the juices to save money? How do I find out what to put in them, how much to make, etc?
As you can tell this whole concept is quite foreign to me so any information would be helpful! Thanks in advance!
My grandfather is turning 85 in May and my family is surprising him by showing up and taking him out to dinner. We visit my grandparents every year in Palm Coast, Florida but we usually stick to the more casual restaurants when we eat out. This time, we are looking for a nicer restaurant (not super expensive) with really great food to give my grandpa a memorable meal! He likes Italian food but we are open to other options as well! We are also willing to drive a little outside of Palm Coast (Flagler, St. Augustine, etc).
Hello everyone. My dad has been drinking Lipton black tea bags for years and he has always enjoyed the flavor. He is really sensitive to sweetness in everything from salad dressings to sauces. Lately, he has said that he has noticed a slight sweet flavor in the original Lipton black tea bags. He doesn't put anything in his tea (i.e. no milk, no honey, no sugar). I haven't found anything online about whether anyone else has noticed this as well or whether there are any changes to the tea bags so I figured that I would put the question to the Serious Eats readers.
Has anyone else noticed Lipton original black tea bags tasting slightly sweet as of late?
Hey everyone! My family just moved to West Chester, PA and we are on the hunt for restaurant recommendations. We have lived in the NJ/NY area for most of our lives so the top thing we are looking for is really great thin crust tomato pies like you get in NJ. This may be an impossible mission but we are looking for something similar around where we are now because the bulk of the pizza we have tried is not to our liking! We were also spoiled by living near a really great bagel place in NJ so if anyone has any great bagel recommendations they are certainly welcomed as well! And any other type of great restaurants around are also welcomed!! Thanks in advance!!
My mom's birthday is coming up at the end of April and I really want to make her a delicious cake. She loves cakes with fruit: raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, orange, coconut. She is not a huge fan of apples in cakes or a big lover of buttercream or whipped cream frostings. She also likes dark chocolate and peanut butter and really enjoys cheesecakes. I am open to anything, I just want it to be really great! Any good recipes?
I haven't eaten fast food in a long time but I recently saw a commercial advertising Burger King's brand new all white meat chicken tenders. Considering that Burger King has never been in the forefront of the fast food chicken tenders, I was curious. I tried some tonight and was reminded why I haven't eaten fast food a lot lately and why I have only been to Burger King approximately 5 times in my life. Needless to say, I was less than pleased with the new tenders. Has anyone else tried them? If so, thoughts?
My grandmother gave me a recipe last year for Irish Soda Bread that she makes in her vintage Pyrex ceramic mixing bowls. She had a few sets and gave one of them to us and we have always loved using them for mixing but we never realized you could bake things right in them! It was truly a revelation when we learned this! For the Irish Soda Bread, you mix all the ingredients and bake it right in the bowl and it is delicious and really easy! So, I was just wondering if anyone else has these bowls and knows of any other kinds of breads that you can make in them?
This may be a long shot, but I am leaving in two weeks for a short trip to Munich with an overnight trip to Prague. My brother studied abroad in Munich so he has all the meals planned out there but none of us have even been to Prague. Has anyone been to Prague that can offer some restaurant recommendations?
Criteria: nothing too expensive and not a tourist trap
Hey Everyone! I'm curious about what restaurants in New Jersey everyone thinks has the best french fries? Any opinions?
