Bits and pieces: Printable food, blizzard recipes and other food news from the web, 12.27.10

I had every intention to be productive during my break from work last week.

Then this happened:

Rob, aka Mr. Ashlee Eats, aka my favorite eating partner, asked me to marry him on Christmas Eve.

I said yes.

The engagement and Christmas the next day allowed me to take a break from the internet and celebrate with family and friends.

Now I’m back, so on with the news.

  • A group of scientists at Cornell University’s Computational Synthesis Lab are building a 3D, syringe-based food printer to create meals, according to the BBC. This sounds like a Willy Wonka experiment gone awry.

 

  • Gain some extra holiday pounds? Try exercising before you eat your breakfast. A study published in the Journal of Physiology showed that “working out before breakfast directly combated the two most detrimental effects of eating a high-fat, high-calorie diet,” according to a blog post from the New York Times.

 

  • Speaking of exercising, the L.A. Times ran an article reviewing workout equipment that folks can use at their desks. If I had a spare $500, I might take a second look at the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. Or I would just haul my butt out of bed and jog.

 

  • For readers stuck in the blizzard that has overtaken New England this week, here’s a snow recipe from All Recipes to add some excitement to being stuck in the house. Just watch out for the yellow snow.
