Where to get free donuts on National Doughnut Day 2019

Food-centric holidays seem to occur nearly every week. Not long ago we celebrated National Pretzel Day, just last week was National Hamburger Day, and we countdown to National Coffee Day every year. But unlike the obscure origins of these holidays, National Doughnut Day goes way back. The first National Doughnut Day was officially established in 1938 by the Salvation Army’s Chicago branch. The chapter revived the donut making tradition as a way to provide much-needed cheer and raise funds for people in need during the Great Depression. The day honored the women who made doughnuts for the soldiers during WWI as a way to boost morale. At their peak, the women could make and supply up to 9,000 doughnuts per day. National Doughnut Day has since become an American tradition and continues to be celebrated the first Friday in June. Many national and local doughnut chains offer freebies or discounts…

These US cities spend the most on takeout

We all know that cooking at home saves money and means you’re probably eating healthier. But with existence of GrubHub, DoorDash, UberEats, and others, staying in your PJS and having food delivered right to your door is particularly tempting. Especially for residents of certain cities. DNA testing company Vitagene used government data to collect information on the average number of meals Americans eat out each week, how much money overall is spent eating out annually, and grocery costs, to come up with a graph which shows which US cities spend the most on takeout. The results? Seattle, home of the tech hungry hubs of Amazon and Microsoft, is also the home of the hungriest for takeout. Emerald city residents spend on average $210 a month on takeout, for an annual bill of $2,520! Pittsburgh came in second, averaging $199 a month of takeout spending. San Fransisco spent the third highest…

Why ordering a large pizza is always a better deal

The next time you size up and order a large pizza, convince yourself it’s because you’re a smart, savvy shopper — not that you just want an excuse to eat more pizza. It turns out that ordering a large really is always the best deal. Yes, it’s true, and it goes against all basic reason. You’ve probably been hanging out with some friends before and decided to order two 12-inch smaller pizzas, thinking that overall you’re getting more pizza to feed the group. But not only are you probably paying more, you’re also getting less pizza. Don’t believe it? It’s called the Pizza Equation, and ASAP Science has the math to prove it. See also, 25 Mouthwatering Facts About Pizza. https://youtu.be/YAawHbPiQfo One large, 18-inch pie actually gives you a full 28 more square inches of pizza than two small 12-inch pies. This makes the larger pizza the better deal. This is because…

7 Keto-friendly drinks you can order at Starbucks

So you have the keto thing down no problem when you cook at home, but when you go out to eat, things can get pretty tricky. Sometimes you might just decide just to skip the restaurant entirely if you’re not sure of its menu options, but skipping out on Starbucks? Well, is that really ever an option? The good news is that you don’t have to give up your beloved coffee run. The java giant offers plenty of keto-approved caffeinated drinks so you can have your morning pick-me-up, while still staying true to your diet. Overall, keep in mind when ordering any drink at a Starbucks or another coffee shop, you’re going to need to order sugar-free, since sugar is basically just carbohydrates. Also, order heavy cream or coconut or nut milk instead of regular milk. That will help you customize most drinks to be more in-line with keto, but here…

Vegan-friendly foods you can order at Panera

It can be hard eating out when you’re on a vegan diet. Restaurants sneak in all sorts of extras you would never know about unless you poured through online ingredients lists for every restaurant. But who really has time for that? Whether you went vegan because you love animals or you just prefer to eat a cleaner diet, we found some plant-based, vegan-friendly food offerings from Panera are 100% safe, along with some offerings you should surprisingly shy away from.

Ditch the bacon and booze to reduce your risk of cancer, study says

You already know that frequent bacon, greasy cheeseburgers and booze are the fast track to packing on the pounds, but unfortunately, that’s not the only risk. If you live by the diet plan of “everything in moderation,” you may want to reconsider. A new study shows that consuming these items, even occasionally, can increase your risk of cancer. According to new findings from the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), ditching booze and bacon entirely could reduce your risk of cancer up to 40 percent. The WCRF research surveyed 51 million people and focused more on making specific dietary recommendations than ever before, according to the Evening Standard. Researchers now urge people to limit consumption of soft drinks, processed foods — like bacon — and reduce drinking, while eating red meat only in moderation. Researchers also recommended staying away from sugar and ditching fast food entirely. As more countries adopt “Western”…

It’s called “fast food” because it’s meant to be made, assembled, packaged and in your hands in mere minutes. But not all drive-thru dining establishments can deliver on this promise. There is, however, one fast food chain that delivers your order in the blink of an eye. A QSR Magazine study found that when you really need your order in a hurry, Burger King is the way to go.
