Temperatures (and life stages) melt into delicious bliss in the dessert/beverage/all of the above affogato

ICE CREAM AND coffee are, in theory, diametrically opposed. One is sweet and cold, like the tears of some divine ice princess, and the other, blistering and brisk as lava.

And when you are a child, coffee holds no appeal. Coffee, particularly dark espresso, is the purview of adults, those tall, lumbering creatures who hoard all the money and also like salads for some reason. Whereas, ice cream is the nectar of the gods, your reason for living and the only inducement in the world that will get you to eat a salad at all.

Ah, the shortsightedness of youth!

Hors d’oeuvres trick brain into believing food is less fattening: study

Don’t let your sticky fingers lead you astray.

The snack bar has us fooled into believing that smaller bites and shared bowls mean fewer calories, according to new psychological research.

The findings suggest that “free food” may be a danger to those on a diet.

The new study, published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology, revealed how individuals tend to perceive dishes that are shared with others from the same plate as less fattening than the same food eaten from separate containers.

After observing the group-dining habits and perceptions of 719 snackers, researchers now believe a feeling of a

Ed Schoenfeld and Betsy Longenbaugh are restarting their series of true crime discussions, called “Death, with Dessert,” similar to a series they hosted before the pandemic.

How To Cut Sugar Out of Your Meals Without Diet Food and Drink

One of the most effective ways to eat more healthily is to reduce the amount of added sugar in your diet.

Diets with fewer sources of added sugars are associated with lower rates of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer in adults, Grace Derocha, a registered dietitian, and national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, told Newsweek.

“Minimizing added sugars
