Finding Anchors in the Storm

Every other week, I see my counselor. My personal cheerleader. I have to fill out a questionnaire each and every time. And at the bottom, is a section where I write down what I feel must be addressed at that appointment no matter what. I have written “time management” and “how to find motivation” and […]

I have always loved food; sure, I might have gone through a few weird phases as a child. Like pulling all the toppings off my pizza and just eating the dough. It lasted from about the time I was 7 until I was 8. Then in my early twenties I didn’t like grapes for about […]

Oy Vay, guys this is no fun getting back to it. It took a week to get over having my appendix out and that’s just to feel better. All the meds they gave me from pain killers to antibiotics made me so nauseous I couldn’t eat or drink. Almost had to be hospitalized for dehydration. […]

MCDONALD’S is adding FIVE new permanent items to their menu – and will put a new bacon roll on their breakfast menu in Ireland. And the fast food favourite is bringing back the Smarties McFlurry by popular demand later this month. McDonald’s is introducing a bacon roll to Irish menus Smarties McFlurrys are permanently back on the menu McDonald’s has also revamped their lunch offerings with new chicken salads, with the choice of crispy or grilled chicken with a balsamic dressing, both at under 300 calories. The menu changes will kick in on June 26. McDonald’s latest breakfast addition the bacon roll will feature three rashers of bacon on a sourdough-style bun with the choice of brown sauce or ketchup. BACK ON THE MENU And fast food chiefs say they’ve listened to the Irish public to bring back the Smarties McFlurry to their menu full time. The vanilla ice cream, crushed Smarties and chocolate sauce treat will be a permanent menu fixture along with the Maltesers and Oreo McFlurrys. The McDonald’s wrap range is expanding too – with The Hot Cajun Chicken One added to the line-up. It has crispy chicken breast strips or grilled chicken with a Cajun sauce, Pepper Jack cheese, tomato, jalapeño slices and lettuce in a soft, toasted tortilla wrap. PLASTIC OUT Plus the eatery is making a move towards more sustainable packaging on salad packing and McFlurrys. All single-use plastics used in their salad ranges are out – and all main meal and side salads will now be served in 100 per cent sustainable and renewable cardboard containers. McDonald’s say this will cut out 102 metric tons of plastic annually as it ditches plastic bowls, as well as shaker salad cups and lids. McFlurry plastic lids are also on the way out, a move bosses say will remove 383 metric tons of plastic annually. McDonald’s will run a series of Live Your Best Lunch events to welcome the menu changes on June 26. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FABULOUS” posts_category=”24″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Event planned across Dublin, Cork and Galway aim to encourage people to ditch desk-dining and make the most of their summer lunch hour whilst sampling the new menu free of charge. Guests to the McDonald’s pop-ups can enjoy activities such as Pound Fit, ukulele lessons and paint classes in the restaurants. McDonald’s last month revealed they were introducing cucumber sticks to their Happy Meal menu. McDonald’s salads will now all be in cardboard packaging The menu changes will kick in on June 26

Maccies has aims to cut down on plastic waste and C02 emissions (Picture: Bloomberg/Getty) McDonald’s will remove plastic lids from all McFlurrys from September as part of a push to be more environmentally friendly. The move is expected to reduce plastic waste by 383 metric tonnes every year. The fast food giant will also remove single use plastic from its salads next week and serve them in 100 per cent recyclable cardboard containers instead. The fast food chain has also introduced some healthier items to its menu (Picture: Getty/iStock) Scrapping the existing plastic bowl, shaker salad cups and lids will save 102 metric tonnes of plastic annually. The new containers are made from ‘carton board’ 50 per cent of which is made from recycled content and the other from new materials from sustainable sources. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] It comes after Maccies’ decision to replace the 8 billion plastic straws used annually by UK customers with paper ones. The change ruffled some feathers with customers complaining it ‘ruined’ the restaurant’s milkshakes. Plastic hungry consumers took to using McDonald’s coffee lids for other drinks and one person even listed a plastic straw on eBay for £1,000. Mcdonald’s has committed to sourcing all of its packaging from renewable or recycled sources by 2025 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 36 per cent by 2030. Replacing McFlurry lids will save 383 metric tonnes of plastic annually (Picture: Wales News Service) Supply Chain Director, McDonald’s UK and Ireland Beth Hart said: ‘I am delighted that today’s news means we will be serving our much loved and new menu items in an even more sustainable way. ‘Removing plastic lids from the McFlurry, and introducing new cardboard packaging for salads, will save nearly 500 metric tonnes of plastic a year. It’s the latest step in our sustainability journey. ‘We are committed to listening to our customers and finding solutions with our suppliers that work for them, this is the latest example of that – but by no means the end. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] The chain has also revamped its salad menu with a healthier 122 calorie grilled chicken salad alongside a 265 crispy one. A new Cajun Chicken Wrap will also be available from June 26 as part of its ‘Meals Under’ range. The initiative lets customers chose a main, side and a drink which hits green or amber on the Food Standard Agency’s traffic light system for fat, salt and sugar. But not all hope is lost for people looking to get their sugar fix, with Smarties, Maltesers and Oreo McFlurrys making their way back onto the menu.

All My Love

One thing I’m trying to change is my sleep schedule. Currently, I’m still on a very bad one— I can’t sleep through the night due to insomnia (side effect of my medication) and I don’t get exhausted until midday. I work evenings mostly, which is awesome, but it’s quite difficult to come home and still […]

CLICK HERE if you are having trouble viewing these photos on a mobile device Last week, the team behind Dublin’s super-popular Burma Burma opened its second location in downtown Walnut Creek, and we’re already hooked. The staff of Burma 2 is knowledgable, the food is delightful and they have Burmese-inspired cocktails. Located in the North Main Street spot formerly housing Siam Fine Thai, Burma 2 specializes in traditional Burmese salads, noodles and curries made with fresh ingredients. We popped in for lunch on Tuesday and sat on the work-in-progress patio, which, we were told, is getting a roof and heat lamps come fall. THE VIBE: Warm and welcoming. The restaurant features booth and four-top table seating, a full bar and friendly servers who make confident recommendations. Ours encouraged us to get Tea Leaf Salad with cabbage (the traditional way) instead of Romaine lettuce (Americanized version), brought us a complimentary coconut rice when we expressed interest and boxed our leftovers in time to make it to an appointment. Impressive. THE FOOD: We’ll never go back to Romaine. With cabbage, the Tea Leaf Salad ($12) held its crunch until the next day, making for even more umami goodness. And the portion was large enough for three. For entrees, without even thinking about it just order the Nan Gyi Dok ($12). This dish of slippery round rice noodles is tossed tableside with coconut curry chicken thighs, yellow bean powder, cilantro, fried onions, crispy wontons, fish sauce, hardboiled egg slices and a squeeze of lemon. It is vibrant, full of flavor and intensely satisfying. Our other favorite: Pumpkin Pork Stew ($15), a delicious savory stew made with garlic, onion and Burmese spices that gets its balanced sweetness from locally-grown pumpkin. As is common with Burmese menus, you can select from a variety of proteins when ordering the stew as well as kebat and curry dishes. Burma also offers a whopping 15 vegetarian options ($12 each), including  Burmese Eggplant Curry, Mango Tofu wok-tossed with white pepper and sambal chili, and, of course, the addictive Samosa Soup ($11) with falafel, potatoes, chickpeas and all the spices. DON’T MISS: Burmese-inspired cocktails ($12 each), like the Margarita with kebat salt rim and the Hibiscus Mojito made with coconut juice. Burma 2 also offers six beers on tap, 14 wines by the glass and more than 30 by the bottle. PERFECT FOR: Power lunch; noodle fix; cocktails and samoas; family-style dinner. DETAILS: Open from 11 a.m. daily for lunch and 5 p.m. daily for dinner at 1616 N. Main St., Walnut Creek; www.burma2.com For more food and drink coverage follow us on Flipboard.
