Eat Your Veggies - The Reason May Surprise You: Insomnia is one of the tell-tale signs of a magnesium deficiency. The next time you indulge in a late night snack, consider adding a small salad of mixed greens. Spinach and Swiss chard are good sources of magnesium. Bonus tip: Use only one plate for your late night snack. Fill half with the salad. Put anything else on the other half.

Jack’s Food Gadget Highlight - Who would have thought!  The US Food and Drug Administration has approved a first-of-its-kind appetite controlling “pacemaker” that tells you when you’re really hungry. The device is designed to block hunger signals, and generate them too. Read on.

158 - mag - village idiots

Captured At The 158 Main Counter… Mimosas and a Smiling Idiot! — A storm is on the way, but so is spring. Catch The Village Idiots in town on April 9th!

The Monday Mag – Jan 19, 2015

The Monday Magazine started out as a spontaneous idea on our Facebook page, to provide different and informative content on the one day we are closed each week. It turned out to be a fun segment we always look forward to preparing each week, so we decided we’d include it on this blog, where it will become and ongoing and easily searchable series. Enjoy.

Three Martin Luther King Quotes To Discuss At Dinner - What do they mean to you now, in everyday life?

1- “All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.”
2- “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
3- “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

158 - sugar

Tips For Your Post-Holiday Sugar Detox - Here are perhaps the two most important rules to follow when trying to get back on track with healthy food habits.

1- More and more dietitians warn that substituting natural sweeteners does not work. This is because they tend to taste even sweeter than regular sugar, making you crave the sensation more, not less.

2- The best substitute is an activity. Pamper yourself. We consider a sweet treat a reward. Making a personal pampering activity into a reward instead is far more efficient, and loving.

158 - chips

Now This Is Engineered Food! - Did You Know? In its search for the perfect chip, the Frito-Lay company used a mechanical chewing mouth to assess, among other very important factors, the best breaking point. Indeed, turns out we prefer a chip that crisply cracks at 4 pounds of pressure per square inch. The chip in question: Cheetos.
