What Is Chicken Supposed to Feel Like?

Because it's getting hard to tell. CAITLIN PETREYCIK  Updated March 11, 2019 For decades, American grocery stores demanded bigger and bigger  chickens , but late last year, prices for beefed-up birds fell to record lows. One reason: shoppers are increasingly aware that larger chickens often have tougher (or just texturally  different ) meat—a side effect of genetic selection that allows meat companies to raise chickens roughly twice as fast as they did 50 years ago, according to The National Chicken Council. Now the industry is sinking millions of dollars into reversing these meat abnormalities (which, FYI, don't pose any food safety risks). Here are the main three affecting chickens from commercial farms right now.  Spaghetti Meat  The name says it all. First spotted around 2015, spaghetti meat is the term researchers use to describe chicken breast fillets that can be pulled apart by hand. "It looks like spaghetti noodles," Dr. Casey Owens, a

Six Amazing Health Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

They’re the divisive festive vegetable that often split opinion at the dinner table more than Brexit or football.  But there’s good reason why your mum insisted on making you endure a forkful of Brussels sprouts on Christmas Day. These little vegetables, which are part of the cabbage family, might look mediocre, but they’re quietly one of the most nutritious side dishes going, thanks to their high antioxidant content, cocktail of vitamins and surprising versatility. Read more Baking experts reveal their top tips for making perfect mince pies Loved and loathed in equal measure, sprouts have a nutty, earthy taste and are a member of the Brassicaceae family of vegetables; their close relations include the cabbage, broccoli and kale.  They gained their name after becoming a staple of the Belgian diet in the 16th Century, although they’re thought to have originally found their way to the UK from Afghanistan.

You Can Blame the Keto Diet for Those Expensive Avocados

Don't point fingers at the rising popularity of avocado toast; high-fat, low-carb diets are the culprit for the avocado price hike. ASHLEY MATEO  February 27, 2019 It wasn't long ago that some Australian billionaire was blaming millennials' obsession with avocado toast for their financial woes. And, listen, there's nothing wrong with dropping $19 if you have it for smashed avocado on bread for that brunch 'gram. But if you're just trying to eat healthily and maybe lose some weight, you're probably dealing with sticker shock every time you hit the supermarket for fresh produce. Turns out keto dieters—along with other high-fat, low-carb devotees—have driven up the average price of high-fat foods like avocados, butter, olive oil, and salmon by as much as 60 percent in the past six years, according to a report from  The Wall Street Journal . (The price of starches like corn, soybeans, and wheat has pretty much remained the same or dropped.)
