On Wednesday, two of the largest trade associations in the food industry announced that
they would do away with “sell by” labels.
They’re going to standardize
the food dates on labels as part of a voluntary initiative.
The Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers
Association will begin phasing the two standardized freshness and
quality labels immediately, with the goal of having every member company
use them by summer 2018.
The phrases are:
1. BEST if Used By
This label will reflect a “quality date.”
2. USE By
This label will reflect a firm expiration date. Foods should be disposed of after this date.
Using common product date wording could eliminate confusion and result in Americans throwing out less food. Read more (2/15/17 5:36 PM)
This nice little Espresso Cup is a combination of latest technology and Nature. The porcelain part is 3D-printed with food save ceramics, with two holes at the handle to be finished with some little branches, to make it an eye-catcher as well as a minimalistic coffee cup that connects you with the Nature your coffee comes from. It is a creation of Vienna based designer Lukas Bast.
-EAT LESS MEAT ( or in general animal products) ! The food industry is one of the main reasons why the global warming is so fast & terryfing. The rain forest probably won’t be there anymore if you don’t do something against it. You don’t have to be vegetarian/vegan but just don’t eat 5 times a week meat/animal products. Once/twice a week is enough
-Use your bike or public transports, or just walk.
-Donate on the websites of Greenpeace etc.
( feel free to add other things)
THIS IS IMPORTANT!! PLEASE HELP TO SAVE THE WORLD
I could be in the deepest of the weeds. Like Jumanji style weeded. I could have 5 tables and all these bitches possess different levels of neediness.
Table 3 needs ranch. Got an allergy at 14, so I need a manager to make sure this bitch don’t fucking die. Table 5 needs me to go catch a lobster. Table 33 need a refill of mango tea, extra sweet with extra ice which only makes them need refills sooner because they drink like beached whales. Table 8 put their water in front of the damn baby so of course it got knocked over immediately and I just happened to be standing there so now I have to clean it.
All this shit could be happening to me at the same time, but if you say the magic words,
“I see that you’re busy, but when you get a minute, can you…”
Do you realize what you have just done? Do you? You have literally just skyrocketed to the top of my to do list.
Fuck that tea. Fuck that ranch. Fuck that baby.
You need napkins, table 45? You getting that shit now. As of this moment, you will get the absolute best service from me. For the duration of your meal, your needs will always come first. You will get a real smile from me. Why? Because you understand that you aren’t my only table in the whole restaurant. You have insured that i’m doing a great job even though in my head, everyone is silently complaining about my service. You understand and for that, I got you, fam.
Hands down, my favorite part of any episode of Kitchen Nightmares is that one member of the staff who is absolutely excited to tell Gordon Ramsay about everything that’s going wrong with the restaurant and its food.
Sweet Sugar Bowl from Table7 series by UAU Project
The Polish design Studio UAUProject has a strong focus on 3D-Printing. After a few 3D-Printed planters and lamps, they started a seven items strong series of table elements. The first item is now being released, and it is this Cupcake inspired SweetSugarBowl.
Does anyone else think that the idea of what is normal to eat for weight loss is so skewed because of the prevalence of bikini competitors in the fitness industry?
Bodybuilding is an extreme sport. Therefore, people go to extreme lengths to achieve the look for the stage. Think of it in the context of a different sport: just because you like to go snowboarding does not mean you have to go down the triple black diamond course doing flips and twists the whole way down. Same thing applies: you don’t have to eat extremely low calories and do immense amounts of cardio to enjoy fitness/bodybuilding style training.
It’s easy to look to these bikini competitors as sources of knowledge, because they have large followings and project authority. However, many of them are not certified yet market themselves as experts. If you want to be an expert, why not take the necessary steps to be qualified in your field? No one would hire me as a biomedical engineer if I didn’t have my degree and college experience. When you pay for personal training/macro coaching, you’re hiring that person. Make sure they’re qualified to give you the service you require from them.
With so many unqualified “fitness influencers” selling plans or openly sharing their macros while on prep, there is misinformation and misconceptions all around. You can say all you want that your macros are for your competition and for an extreme and personalized so the viewer shouldn’t copy them all you want, people are still going to see the numbers flash across the screen and see the way you look and they’re gonna go ahead and copy you anyway. People watching a lot of these types of videos (I myself have watched a fair amount) begin to think that in order to lose weight/get shredded, they must also lower their macros to extremes and do tons of cardio.
The truth is that most of the time, bikini competitors are pretty thin to begin with. They have to push their bodies to extremes with low calories and insane cardio because their bodies are literally fighting to hold on to the essential level of body fat. The amount of body fat that a bikini competitor has on stage is not maintainable because it is not natural for the female body to have that little fat. This is also why many competitors lose their periods and have issues with hormone levels.
What a bikini competitor does to prep for a show is not what people should emulate for general fat loss. Sure the basic principles are the same - eat less, move more - but comparing yourself to a competitor can really, really skew what “less” is. Weight loss can be achieved through being conscious of fitness and nutrition, but there is no need to push to extremes and starve yourself. I urge anyone who wants to lose weight to turn away from bikini competitors for advice and look to sources that educate on healthy, sustainable weight loss.
