Planning to host a poker night party for your friends? There are many things you need to consider when doing that such as the food to serve, the gaming materials and the furniture arrangement. Of course you want that night to be comfortable for everyone, but you also want to avoid the stress of preparation. Let me give you some tips on how to have a hassle-free poker night and the perfect food to serve.
The first thing you need to focus on is the deck of cards. Instead of using a deck of cards, chips and a huge poker table, you can use your tablet such as your iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab to play poker. This gadget is very handy and does not consume too much space. You can set up comfortably on couches or bean bags where your friends can sit down and play poker using their tablet. There are many gaming sites nowadays that offer various poker games including partypoker.com. Poker is very popular among college students because its fun and easy to play. Students usually spend their poker nights in their small dorm or even at home when their parents are away for the weekend. Party Poker is the choice of many college students because the stakes here are low, but the cash prizes are huge. If you have a low budget, then this is perfect for you. You can even use play money instead of real money. So you can practice poker as much as you want until you are ready for the real tournament. You can sign in your friends at PartyPoker in advance so that they can easily log in once they arrive at your party.
The new “Donut Burger” breakfast sandwich of California-based burger chain Slater’s 50/50 adds up to a whopping 790 calories, according to the LiveStrong calorie counter. The sandwich contains a beef patty and egg surrounded by two glazed donuts, which adds up to a whole lot of working out on the day you choose to eat this breakfast of champions.
To burn 790 calories you would have to run for one hour and 45 minutes, or ride a bike/walk briskly for 2 hours and 40 minutes. A “Donut Burger” can be purchased for $9.95, which isn’t your most valuable or healthy deal considering the alternatives; such as the black forest ham, egg and cheese sandwich from Subway for just $5.00.
The truth about carbs: If you have any experience in the world of fad diets, you have most likely heard of “The Atkins diet”. For the those of you who do not know, The Atkins Diet makes carbs look like the black plague of food, that will also make you fat. Now, years after this diet has been around, there still seems to be some negative connotation associated with carbs. Well, NEWS FLASH: carbs are vital for bodily functions and provide necessary nutrients!
The brain uses the glucose that comes from carbs, for it’s primary source of energy. Without it, the consequences of having low blood glucose levels, are dizziness and fatigue. Being in a state like this your usual work-out routine, might start to seem like torture tactics, because you just simply do not have the energy. I do not know about you, but something about feeling like that, just is not very appealing.
Here are the Top 5 date things guys shouldn’t do at all if you actually intend on going on another one again. Because as much as you think dressing your best and smelling good is a must…it’s the other little things that you might be doing that won’t get you a call back.
5. COMPLAIN ABOUT PRICES. Yes, food prices are getting high and yes, we are in a recession: but one thing you don’t wanna come off as is the cheapest guy in the world. If you act as if you don’t know how to splurge a little, it could imply that you are stingy about other things…which won’t help you in the end. Solution: check out the prices of the menu/activities before hand, and budget accordingly.
Appetite vs Hunger. The difference between the two is; appetite is a desire for food and hunger is the physical need for food. Let’s discuss what is actually going on, with the body, during these two events.
If you cannot recognize the difference between the two, this is likely why your waist size keeps increasing. Simple solution? “Listen to your body, and stop eating so damn much!” Hunger can be tamed by eating a sandwich. Appetite; on the other hand, keeps your hand dipping in the Lays chip bag after the sandwich, and is responsible for that extra baggage around your thighs. Appetite; a conditioned response to the look and smell of food, makes you want to eat four cookies, instead of a cup of steamed broccoli. At this time you need to practice self control!!
Eating healthy now a day can be complicated, and eating organic can be even more complicated. Should we eat organic food? Are all organic foods created equal? Will organic foods fit my budget? All great questions in the fight to stay fit, below I am going to breakdown the dirty dozen 12 foods I would suggest you buy organically. Why you ask? Well, these 12 foods here when tested on average contain a generous amount of pesticides, for example if you were to eat the 12 most contaminated foods or the “dirty dozen” below you would be exposed to an average of about 10 pesticides per day. My best example 96% of peaches tested showed up positive for pesticides, that’s close to 100% contamination rate. So without delay below is the list of the dirty dozen according to www.foodnews.org

Nothing is better than when one company directly insults another in their ads, and Pizza Hut is doing just that in their new ad campaign. The pizza company is introducing their new P’Zolo which is essentially a toasted sub. The available flavors are Meat Trio, Buffalo Chicken and Italian Steak, and they look pretty appetizing and they are priced well too at 3 bucks or two for $5. Hmmm… five dollars? A sub? Those two things together sound vaguely familiar:
In the Frozen Pizza Diaries, writer Mary Kate Lau eats a bunch of different frozen pizzas and tells you what she thinks. This time: Freschetta Brick Oven Three Meat.
When it comes to pizza, brick oven is a fantastic word. Nothing compares to a brick oven pizza. It transports you to a little Italian village where a man with a fantastic mustache makes the entire thing from hand. He just sits in his little pizza shop all day and thinks of ways to make the pizza better for you. Maybe he has a daughter he ignores for his pizza and she acts out and runs off with son of the guy who owns the panini shop across the street. How could she!!
