Le Creuset 3.5 qt French oven is one my most treasured kitchen items and certainly one to be passed down to my girls – guess I will need to get another! This cookware is expensive but I look at it as an investment in health as other surfaces can chip and react to foods, which in turn leeches into the food that we ingest. The Le Creuset line is enamel-coated cast iron, which will not react to food, can take very high heat and is easy to clean – not to mention there are so many fun colors to choose from.
This book not only gives an in depth look at the Modern American Diet (MAD) and its link to the epidemic rise in obesity and diabetes but also a shocking revelation that the foods that we are consuming are largely responsible for the rise in numerous brain disorders, including depression and Alzheimer’s. It is a wake up call into how food choices can affect our brain function and how we might actually be shrinking our brains with poor food choices. Thus the saying “bad food, bad mood.” Honestly, I picked this book off the shelf purely because of the title and the jacket cover, but luckily my love for packaging paid off – this book is very well written and spot on.
The Uber app is a must in San Francisco! Cabs are hard to find and who wants to sit outside waiting to flag one down! The app holds your credit card info and all you have to do is request a cab via your phone, the cab will locate where you are and send you a GPS signal as to where your cab is as well as a name and a photo of your cabdriver. You will then get a call from your driver when he/she is out front. The cab fee along with gratuity are automatically charged to your card so no need to fumble for your wallet! Seriously Uber cool!
