Raw food pantry essentials

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Sep 18th, 2013

It can be quite intimidating to keep a raw food pantry stocked–especially when you’re first starting out.  Meghan Pearson stopped by to share her favourite raw food pantry essentials.

  • Apple cider vinegar: It is raw and unpasteurized, and packs a punch of health benefits.  Pearson recommends taking it with water first thing in the morning, similar to lemon water, and it is alkalizing and soft on the body.
  • Organic hemp protein: This is a non-gritty product that can be added to protein shakes and smoothies–an easy way to get the required amount of daily protein.
  • Chia seeds: You can get them in whole and sliced varieties, and is perfect for incorporating into raw puddings.  Pearson says the sliced variety makes it more bio-available and is an excellent superfood.
  • Raw cacao nibs: You can use these interchangeably with chocolate chips, Pearson says.  Simply add them to your favourite raw snacks and desserts.
  • Coconut oil: You can use it virtually anywhere from hair to skin to food!
  • Lucuma powder: This all-natural ingredient is a Peruvian fruit that’s ground up into a powder.  It acts as a natural sweetener, but is low on the glycemic index.
  • Almonds: A versatile ingredient in the kitchen, and high in vitamin E.  Pearson warns to make sure they come in their rawest form.
  • Nutritional yeast: A perfect item to have on hand for flavouring.  It is a raw yeast that acts similarly to cheese.

Take a look at the segment below:

Jimmy Kimmel admits twerking-turned-girl-on-fire viral video is a hoax

Winston Sih | posted Tuesday, Sep 10th, 2013

In a viral video that caught the attention of international media, the video of a girl twerking on a door that had her fall over on top of a coffee table and candles catching her pants on fire turned out to be a hoax, comedian Jimmy Kimmel said on his late-night talk show Monday.

“We didn’t send it to any TV station, we didn’t tweet it,” Kimmel said. “We just put it on YouTube and let the magic happen.”

It was a social experiment set up after Miley Cyrus’ buzz-worthy VMA performance, and Kimmel admits it was made to “end twerking forever.”

Last week, Breakfast Television aired the original clip where Kevin Frankish suspected it to be fake.

The viral video is nearing 10 million views on YouTube.

First Look: Wonder Mountain’s Guardian

Winston Sih | posted Friday, Aug 30th, 2013

Canada’s Wonderland unveiled their newest attraction to Breakfast Television viewers first, this morning.

Wonder Mountain's Guardian

The new ride, named the Wonder Mountain’s Guardian, will be a thrilling interactive 4-D dark ride, and will be unveiled at the Vaughan, Ont. amusement park next May.

“We felt the timing was right to enter the massive caverns of Wonder Mountain and provide our guests with a new dimension of thrills,” said general manager Norm Pirtovshek.

The Canadian-built ride climbs the side of the mountain where it plummets into the landmark, taking riders through five different layers of stunning special effects.

Wonder Mountain’s Guardian will navigate on over 1,000 feet of coaster track through a desolate forest, underground lake, culminating in the dragon’s lair for a heart-stopping finale that will shock you to the core–literally.

“Thrill-seekers from all generations will be amazed by the combination of unique ride thrills and immersive 4-D interactive action as they compete for ride supremacy,” Pirtovshek said.

The ride is built by Montreal-based TRIOTECH.

Technology in the bedroom depriving people of sleep: study

Winston Sih | posted Thursday, Aug 29th, 2013

Nine out of 10 people are being deprived of their sleep because of smartphones in the bedroom, a UK survey has found.

Out of two thousand people surveyed, over half reported surfing the web while in bed trying to sleep; one in five admitted to checking social media and emails; and a low one in 10 said their quality of sleep was good.

Kevin Frankish tweeted asking for your pictures of #SocialInsomnia.  Watch the segment and tell us whether technology in the bedroom is depriving you of quality sleep in the comments below.
