Foodini Is A 3D Printer That Lets You Print Dishes With Fresh Ingredients | TechCrunch

Foodini is a 3D printer for foodstuffs. Its Florida-based makers are hoping their time-saving device becomes as ubiquitous on kitchen countertops as the microwave oven has become.

But instead of forcing people to rely on highly processed convenience food that’s larded with additives and unhealthy levels of salt, as microwave meals generally are, they want Foodini to get more people cooking with fresh ingredients, rather than reaching for that pre-processed packet.

Some day, producing  OK food at home will be no harder than producing OK coffee — slip some pods of this and than into a machine and out comes — ravioli.  Or peanut butter.  Or something.

Do yourself a favor.  Google up Learn To Cook and try, first, some small things.  If you can scramble an egg, look up Omelette.   If you can grill a burger, look up grilled asparagus.  Expand just slightly each time, and you’ll never have a need for the food pod machine.

Does washing remove the pesticides from foods? : Ask Dr. Gourmet

It’s essential to wash produce before eating it, regardless of whether it’s conventional (pesticides) or organic (poopie and its related bacteria).

Rejoice! You Probably Won’t Get Salmonella From Eating Raw Cookie Dough – Consumerist

Growing up, I was lucky enough to not face many food battles because I happened to like the food my parents made (most of the time). But when confronted with the remnants of a bowl of raw cake batter or a fresh batch of raw cookie dough, I’d wage a full-scale rebellion against the advice of my elders and lick/eat the heck out of those sweet treats, despite the threat of salmonella poisoning. Turns out it might not have been that risky of a business.

The Best Olive Oil for Your Money May Be at Trader Joe’s.

We love our Trader Joe’s and are glad to see them getting yet more recognition. Their bloue-label liter size bottle of Greek olive oil is highly rated in this article and tastes GREAT on anything EVOO can be used for.

Brilliant!  Lots of people would drop 5 bucks on a coffee drink …. but would they for the same number of calories drink 5 cans of cola?

Chiropractor Thinks 2-Year-Old McDonald’s Happy Meal Will Convince People To Avoid Fast Food – Consumerist

Once again, someone is amazed (astounded! mind-blown!) by the fact that a McDonald’s Happy Meal, if left untouched and exposed to the air for a few years, will not rot or become overrun with mold. This time, it’s a chiropractor in Nebraska who thinks that displaying an ancient cheeseburger and fries in his office will help convince people that fast food is bad for them. Except he’s wrong, at least about why the Happy Meal still looks recognizable after all this time.

Behold the meal that never dies.
