It’s the Time of the Season for Soup

No Comments | Written on October 20, 2017 at 10:45 am , by

Now that the weather has finally caught up with the season, Chicagoans are in a rush to shift from the joys of summer to the comforts of fall.

With the changing of the seasons comes a changing of food and with Autumn comes the harvest. It’s a time to husk corn, skin squash, and eat crisp, red apples right off the tree. It’s a time to make steamy stews and hot, sugary pies. And it’s a time to look with new eyes on the food we eat and to consider a change in diet alongside the change in seasons.

While in the summer they preferred refreshing juice cleanses, health fanatics and dieters are now searching for something warmer and more filling to sustain their bodies through another harsh winter. So while kids run through corn mazes and carve glaring faces into innocent orange vegetables, many of their parents are about to embark on a new dietary fad fit for the season: Souping.

Dairy Milk vs. Plant Milk: Why You Should Switch

No Comments | Written on October 13, 2017 at 10:45 am , by

For the past year or two, almond milk and other alternatives to dairy milk have been on the rise. The non-dairy sections of grocery stores continue to grow, and many Americans are considering making the switch themselves.

Since these sources aren’t exactly free from bias, we’re here to test which of these claims is true.
