Top Ten Links of the Week: 8/13/10 - 8/19/10

As promised!

1) Money Saving Mom: How do You Feed Hungry Teenagers Without Breaking Your Budget?
I have never seen a human being eat so much in a single day – or sitting – than my brother did at age 15. Moms, I salute you, and I salute your suggestions in this extensive comment thread. Now, who’s up for half a pizza?

2) Village Voice: The 10 Easy Diet Rules of the Sietsema Weight Loss System
Number six is a little strange, but this common sense approach to dropping a few pounds from the Voice’s food critic is worth a gander.

3) Lifehacker: Master the Art of Low-Effort Cooking
Behold! It’s all your rice cooker, microwave, and hot pot questions, answered! If I had read this in college (heck, if the internet existed like this in college), I would have eaten far fewer chicken fingers.

4) Jezebel: The Hierarchy of Food Needs
Interesting pictorial representation of what humans require from food, moving from rock-bottom basic needs to more extravagant wants. It goes a long way towards explaining hunger and obesity in America: when folks don’t have access to the basics, it’s foolish to think they’re going to give a flying you-know-what about much beyond that.

5) Serious Eats: 6 Ways to Build Your Spicy Food Tolerance
Also effective for iocane powder, for your inevitable battle of wits with Vizzini.

6) The Simple Dollar: 48 Things Frugality Has Taught Me
What a neat read. I’d love to do something like this soon. What about you guys?

7) Lifehacker: Keep Your Eyes on Your Food to Avoid Overeating
More evidence that visual cues are invaluable to gauging the amount of food we consume.

8) Huffington Post: The Myth of Superfoods
There’s more, but here’s the main thrust: “If you want to get the most from your diet, you're much better off focusing on dietary diversity rather than loading up on the top 10 foods some magazine says you should eat more of.”

9) The Kitchn: 9 Essential Things for a Joyful Gluten-Free Life
You guys! Who can’t do the Wheaties! Look at this.

10) stonesoup: 7 Tips for Cooking with Vino
Number 4: “Don’t expect all the alcohol to be removed by the cooking process.” Say wha?


Casual Kitchen: Who Does the Cooking in Your Home? The Results May Surprise You
Via Twitter, Dan asked followers who did the majority of household cooking. 80% of the time, it’s the ladies.

New York Times: For Moister Chicken, Tuck the Flavor Inside
Chicken wraps, in which the chicken is the wrap.

The Simple Dollar: The Challenge of Couponing
Interesting take on coupon sites. Dunno if I agree, but if you have a couponing problem, yo, Trent solves it.

I shared Trent's "48 Things Frugality Has Taught Me" with my readers this week too. There are some seriously good lessons buried in there.

I still think this whole frugality thing is really gonna catch on one of these days. :)

PS: Thanks for the shout-out!
PPS: Nice iocane powder reference.

I loved the "48 Things Frugality Has Taught Me" list! I'm kind of thinking of doing one myself now.
