There is conflicting advice out there about drinking a small amount, particularly of wine, during pregnancy. Some research has said it may even be beneficial. Today the National Bureau of Economic Research says that’s wrong.
That’s the Dairy Queen I’m always at.
Fun fact: my mom calls Dairy Queen “Brazier Burger.”
Can’t believe I forgot about that laundromat…
Gotta love this. :)
I WILL NEVER NOT REBLOG BATMAN AND ROBIN’S SALAD DRESSINGS
Batman’s dressing sounds terrible!
It’s their body language that really sells this
Also needed: Green Arrow’s recipe for traditional fondue with kirschwasser. MINE ALWAYS CLUMPS.
Plus, pre-crisis Hawkman’s stuffed mushroom caps.
This reminds me of a DC characters children’s cookbook I checked out of the library as a kid, for which I have fond memories.
Fizz Eats turned 3 today!
Breakfast for dinner, only one way to warm up in this weather.
"Big Jug" of Organic Maple Syrup
I want this. All of it. Maybe tomorrow.
"We believe that the case is closed— supplementing the diet of well-nourished adults with (most) mineral or vitamin supplements has no clear benefit and might even be harmful. These vitamins should not be used for chronic disease prevention. Enough is enough."
So reads an authoritative editorial today in one of the widest-read U.S. medical journals, Annals of Internal Medicine. The authors are five physicians from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and Warwick Medical School in the U.K., including one of the journal’s senior editors. Each has at least five letters worth of postgraduate degrees after their name.
"Beta-carotene, vitamin E, and possibly high doses of vitamin A supplements are harmful,” they specify. “Other antioxidants, folic acid and B vitamins, and multivitamin and mineral supplements are ineffective for preventing mortality or morbidity due to major chronic diseases.”
Interesting. They mention pregnant women should still take folic acid. I wonder if doctors will still recommend prenatal vitamins?
Two years ago I had a perfect meal at Ad Hoc, Thomas Keller’s casual dining restaurant in Yountville. Tonight I had another perfect meal there, but this time with a baby. He was very good. I held him between courses, and let him lie down and kick his feet on the banquette when the food came. He got fussy during the main because he wanted to sleep and it was too loud, but Kelly cradled him until he fell asleep, and he slept fairly soundly on the seat until dessert.
We drank spiced lemonade, Kelly’s with bourbon, and it was delicious. Cheers to an impeccable restaurant.
