Is there any added nutritional value in Whole wheat flour?

Is there any added nutritional value in Whole wheat flour? Submitted by UpsideDan on February 17, 2019 - 7:10pm. I am looking at this issue from both quality and quantity perspectives. Maybe someone with nutritional background can address these points:Quality: Rose Levi Beranbaum appears to have made an extensive research in her book “the bread bible” so I feel comfortable quoting her (p. 545) “when baking bread with flour ground from the whole wheat grain, it is necessary for the g...

The practical de-escalation of worry

In order to maintain its power, common anxiety (sometimes called worrying) needs your help. Constant reminders, moments of conflict and concrete examples all pitch in to keep our worry on the warpath, amplifying it and further frazzling us. The feeling of experiencing failure in advance happens to many of us. But with active encouragement we can make it much worse. Without our help, it’ll likely fade away. But if we work at it, we can keep it going for hours. Not only do each of us experience wo...

Dennis McCarthy: A cruise down Van Nuys Blvd.’s memory lane

Tom Whitebirch pulled his 2015 GMC Acadia to the curb in front of Keyes Motors on Van Nuys Boulevard last week, and saw in his mind’s eye a short, fat kid wearing red and white checkered overalls holding up a hamburger on a plate, smiling at him. He’s not 82 now, he’s 16 – driving his 1941 Mercury Coupe with a powder blue paint job he paid $200 bucks for in 1953. Not the paint job, the whole car. A Bob’s Big Boy Restaurant used to be right here. It’s where all his pals in the Jesters, Hi Hats, a...

Outfit Formula: Simple Solid Bright Pants

Wearing bright pants is an acquired taste. Some find the look loud, juvenile, unprofessional and widening, and prefer neutral bottoms. Others simply prefer to wear their non-neutrals up top. Personally, I enjoy wearing bright pants because it’s an easy way to make an interesting and bold statement. Add a simple top and pair of shoes, and you’re there. The pants do all the talking. I miss my red, orange and citron pants, and desperately want to replace them this year. I think these outfits are go...

10 Tips for a Long and Happy Marriage

You can’t deliver the magic love formula for the same two couples. Yet, there’s a wealth of knowledge out there from those who understand what it takes to thrive. For one couple, it might be a simple passion or activity they both enjoy, something that no one else can understand. Humor, music, sense of s...

Kevin Smith Needs Redbox to Replace ‘Clerks’ Locale RST Video in ‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’

Kevin Smith‘s breakthrough indie comedy Clerks takes place entirely at two locations. One is the Quick Stop Groceries, where Dante (Brian O’Halloran) works, even when he isn’t supposed to be there that day. The other is RST Video, the video rental store where Randall (Jeff Anderson) wastes his day away. But it sounds like one of those locations is getting replaced in Kevin Smith’s forthcoming comedy sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Yesterday afternoon, Kevin Smith revealed why Jay and Silen...

Ducks rookie Kevin Boyle gets first NHL start in goal

ANAHEIM — It was a simple process of elimination. John Gibson’s back, neck and head were still causing him pain so he wasn’t an option. Chad Johnson’s head wasn’t right after he was struck by a puck twice. Ryan Miller’s knee was better, but not good enough for him to return to the lineup as a starting goaltender. So, Bob Murray selected the healthiest goalie of the four he had available and that’s how Kevin Boyle made his first NHL start on Wednesday against the Vancouver Canucks at Honda Center...

Parisian of the Month: Patricia Laplante-Collins

Almost every Sunday night for over two decades, Patricia would open her home and make dinner for whoever wanted to come, as long as you were pleasant and open to meeting new people.

Comment on plush coconut cake by judithrmintz

we have both of your books; the most recent one is signed by you in Toronto! AND we keep on printing your wonderful blog recipes. We are about to attempt this cake…with Bob’s 1:1 GF flour. We’ll let you know if we run into problems. My daughter wants to do it layer style, but I didn’t see notes about that so I’ve convinced her to do it in a flower/scalloped shaped 9″ pan.

Alan Watts was overzealous in his basic income prediction – but he wasn't wrong

Economist Robert Theobald coined the team 'basic living guarantee' in the 1960s.He believed that we were going to suffer problems because of an overabundance of resources.Philosopher Alan Watts spoke about the possibility of an economic utopia through a universal basic income. The perceived threat of labor-ending automation, a stratified elite class, and increasingly complex occupations have left some worried about the fate of their livelihoods and jobs. It's feared that a seemingly useless ...

Whicker: Bob Murray goes to the bench to inspect the Ducks’ damage

ANAHEIM — It’s often said that a hockey coach should always beware of a general manager who can skate. That was not Randy Carlyle’s fear, or his undoing. He got fired because his hockey club didn’t skate, or wouldn’t. Bob Murray commuted Carlyle’s sentence Sunday morning. Then Murray bit the bullet by becoming the Ducks’ interim coach. “It was tough putting the skates on again, trust me,” Murray said. He told the Ducks there were a “lot of good players” wearing the uniform they had been defiling...
