Friday night in Lansing, Michigan, was exceptionally fun. I was the third speaker in the first session of Ignite Lansing 3.0, talking about “Simple Rules for Eating Real Food”.
Better, healthier popcorn on the stove
Traditional production of popcorn (the old-fashioned approach), is done on a stovetop with little more than oil and popcorn kernels. When made this way, popcorn is a healthy, filling snack both high in fiber and low in calories.

Is Mrs. Butterworth a syrup fraud?
One gallon of maple syrup requires a 40 gallon input of maple sap (form either the sugar maple or black maple). This sap is processed by removing water through boiling (or reverse osmosis) until it reaches the density that pancake-lovers typically associate with syrup.
