Question: How can I use nutrition for dealing with holiday stress?The holidays may be a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be stress. While many often spend the holidays with family and friends, many will be isolated this year. To deal with stress that isolation may cause, make technology your friend. Connect with family, friends, and loved ones on an outlet such as Zoom or FaceTime. Eat dinner together through a video call. Share new hobbies you’ve been working on as well. Perhaps brush up on your cooking skills and reveal your new favorite recipe!Another important way of managing stress around the holidays is to establish a meal and snack schedule. Sometimes routines may go out the window, especially during this busy season, so having structure around your eating habits can help bring peace of mind. Make a schedule that will help you stay energized and satisfied throughout the day, whether it is 3 meals a day or 6 balanced snacks a day. Keep a running grocery list to ensure you have all the staples on hand.If you find yourself chronically stressed, this can affect your nutrition by leading to increased appetite. Emotions can also influence eating habits, whether it is sadness, anxiety, boredom, or something else. If you are eating for reasons other than hunger, focus on being mindful about your meal and snack choices. When you have an urge to eat something, breathe through the craving first before …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Eggs are a nutritious and affordable source of protein that humans have been eating for millions of years (1). The most commonly consumed type of egg is the chicken egg. Still, many other types of eggs can be eaten too, including duck, quail, turkey, and goose eggs. Duck eggs are a staple in Asian cuisines, though recently they have been gaining popularity in other places around the world (2). You might have seen them at the grocery store, your local market, or on restaurant menus.This article explains the differences between duck eggs and chicken eggs and compares the nutritional profiles of each. It also reviews some overall benefits and potential downsides of eating eggs.In general, duck and chicken eggs are quite similar. Still, there are a few specific features that set the two apart.AppearanceThe most noticeable difference in physical appearance is the size of the eggs. A duck egg can be 50–100% larger than an average-sized chicken egg. Thus, eating one duck egg is like eating one and a half or two chicken eggs.As with chicken eggs, the color of duck eggs varies based on the breed and diet of the duck, the environment it’s raised in, and its genetics (3). Many duck eggs have white shells, but they also come in shades of pale gray, green, black, and blue.The yolks also differ in both size and color.

Barbara Quinn, On Nutrition: It’s time to shop small

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

I’m a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas. The tree doesn’t go up until after Thanksgiving. And I consider the day after Turkey Day a time for leftovers and football, not holiday shopping.So of course I missed Small Business Saturday last week — a day that encourages us to spend our holiday shopping dollars with local merchants. It’s not too late, though. We can still support our friends and neighbors locally this season. How and where we spend our money through this month may well decide who is still in business in 2021.
I actually enjoy shopping at smaller businesses. I know the family who runs our local coffee shop where I can pick up gift certificates for yummy meals and foo-foo beverages. And no one can beat the personal service at our local hardware/gift store. I love that.
Thank heaven, too, for small merchants who have online stores. Here are a few I’ve discovered that can ship worthwhile gifts:
Chugwater Chili (chugchili@chugwaterchili.com). Chugwater, Wyoming, is home to about 200 people and the Wyoming state championship chili recipe. In 1986, five families purchased the award-winning recipe and formed this small company. Warning: besides the world’s easiest and best chili you can make with this seasoning, you’ll find yourself adding it to everything from eggs to soup. And the families that run this business are darn friendly.
Sandhills seasoning (sandhillsbens.com). This family-run business in the Midwest grasslands known as the Sandhills offers a unique …

There’s no denying that Chris Hemsworth is jacked—even beyond his Thor days. But what may surprise you is that it wasn’t until after Thor that Hemsworth began to get tight on his diet. As the actor told us back in 2019, “Then really over the last year or so, I changed up a lot of my training and nutrition program and it’s the best I’ve ever felt.”The guy’s not lying.If you check out recent posts on Hemsworth’s Instagram, you’ll find photos and videos of his hardcore workouts, as well as on his health and fitness app Centr, which integrates mind and body through a workout, diet, and lifestyle plan that advertises weight loss and weight management. The man is a walking symbol of a life (and side hustle) dedicated to fitness.Admittedly, Hemsworth workout regimen and diet are strict (it takes work to stay this fit), and, for that very reason, that strictness may lead you to wonder: Is the way Hemsworth eats healthy and feasible long-term?
