The Health Benefits of Calcium

The Health Benefits of Calcium

Why you need it and what to know about itPhoto by Steve Tsang on UnsplashThis week I planned to write a post on magnesium and its importance for athletes, but after talking to one of my clients about osteoporosis, I decided to dedicate this post to calcium:Calcium is an essential nutrient that can’t be produced by the body and thus has to be consumed through diet (or supplements*). It is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Calcium accounts for approximately 2% of our body weight.According to the National Institutes of Health, 1% of the calcium present in the human body is required for critical metabolic functions such as hormone secretion, vascular contraction, and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, or intracellular signaling. The other 99% is stored in bones and teeth.In order to metabolize calcium, the body needs other nutrients such as protein, vitamin D, or phosphorus. Apart from that, the amino acid lysine helps calcium absorption. This is one reason why just taking a calcium pill can’t replace eating REAL, healthy food (you’ll find more information on supplements later on).Calcium is crucial for the formation of bones and teeth. The increase in bone mass and size peaks around the...

Taipei’s Food Scene Heats Up

Taipei’s Food Scene Heats Up

With a group of young, wildly creative chefs leading the way, the Taiwanese capital is emerging as Asia’s buzziest culinary destination.Photographs by Sean Marc Lee.Marinated crab at Ephernité.In Taiwan, the highway rest stops are destinations in their own right, thanks to the unusually elaborate snacks they serve. Those snacks — congee, tea eggs, roasted sweet potatoes, and other humble, nourishing, everyday delights — have lodged in the brain of chef Kai Ho. At Taïrroir, his elegant, Michelin-starred, three-year-old restaurant in the capital, Taipei, Ho serves a dish called Memory of a Highway Rest Area. The congee is lush; the yolky, yielding, Pu’er-tea-marinated egg comes from silkies, the black-skinned chickens prized for their medicinal value; the broad, crispy buckwheat tuile that lies across the top is dotted with sweet-potato fondant and wisps of green herbs. You want to savor it, yet it vanishes in a few bites, a brief stop on a multicourse tasting menu that romps through the island’s traditions and ingredients with dishes like roast P’ing-tung pigeon, salt-baked bamboo shoots, and Taiwan Beer tofu mousse.Ho belongs to a new generation of chefs who are reimagining what fine dining means in Taipei. They’re a mix of Taiwanese and expats — including veterans of...

Our American Lifestyle Is Not Tea-Friendly

Our American Lifestyle Is Not Tea-Friendly

Have you heard the news? Tea, one of the world’s oldest beverages, second only to water in daily drinking, is so hot right now. The sober-curious are guzzling it, with more than a little help from savvy Instagram marketers. The wellness industrial complex is making a mint on matcha face masks. Fine dining restaurants are launching high-end tea programs to rival their bar menus. And nootropic nuts love tea’s so-called calming compound, L-theanine, almost as much as CBD.The way Thrillist’s Kevin Alexander put it in October, spotlighting the tea industry’s annual trade show in Las Vegas, “the energy around the American artisanal tea world feels much like the craft cocktail scene in the late ‘90s.” Finding himself among a crew of tea nerds that trade single-bush oolongs like teens used to exchange mixtapes, Alexander’s narrative brims with optimism about tea’s bright American future: “We’re still in those early adopter stages…but it’s professionalizing slowly….The true believers are making progress.” It’s only a matter of time, it seems, before Good Tea is as great an American success story as third-wave coffee or natural wine, with similar mainstream recognition.As one of those true tea believers — see my collection of 50 pounds of loose...

W is for

W is for

W is for “Wourder”A relative recent obsession of mine, that I am now ready to talk about is the YouTube channel of Bon Appetit. The food magazine’s online video presence has made mini-celebrities of their chefs, writers, editors and assistants. There are many different shows like It’s Alive (all about fermentation!), Gourmet Makes (pastry chef recreates packaged junk food), Reverse Engineering (blind tasting a dish to then figure out the ingredients and make it exactly), Back-to-Back Chef, Making Perfect and many many more such simple yet genius ideas.What makes this channel different from the other food channels is that in the Bon Appetit cinematic universe, everyone has a personality, they are constantly making mistakes like everyone does in the kitchen and they all seem to be having a good-natured good time. Their videos are not quick and snappy, many of them crossing the 15-minute mark, some even longer but watching them is calming and interesting and wholesome in every way. Even when Claire Schafitz is having a break down trying to make kit kats or Brad Leone is making foccacia with Samin Nosrat.Brad Leone is undoubtedly the star of this kitchen with his big outdoor man vibe, moving clumsily through the...

Sharing a meal

Sharing a meal

Photo from TripAdvisorNo matter which generation you are, or where you come from, sharing a meal is what we have in common. Sharing a meal is so much more than eating food; instead, we share our thoughts, experiences, and emotions with others.From my point of view, there are three reasons why people share a meal, even though they are from different cultures.1. A chance to connectSharing a meal is a way that people can promote better relationships with others, such as families, classmates, or colleagues, etc. For example, at ITI, English group members change every term, so we will have a meal together in the beginning of the term, which is an opportunity to know more about one another.2. Catching up with people you careNowadays people use social media to keep in touch with families or friends. However, there’s nothing can replace face-to-face conversation. I think real-time conversation can make people willing to express their feelings because someone who they care or love is sitting in front of them instead of a device, especially when you need someone to keep you company.3. Create and Share MemoriesSharing a meal doesn’t just mean eating food; instead, it’s a group activity. During eating, you...

OK, Annie.

OK, Annie.

*Buy Crisco in sticks, not tubs, so it’s easy to measure. (Also, no one needs a tub of Crisco.) Don’t go rogue and use 12 tablespoons of butter.

I have never cooked with Crisco in my life but I am going to give these cookies a go. And the chocolate shortbread recipe — yeah — I’ll be diving into that too. Nice writing.
