Happy Thanksgiving for those in America! Nutripol is about to be on a two week break (I’m going off the grid in Thailand!), but I thought I’d write another holiday-themed Think About It to tide you over until December. Learn all about why pumpkin pie is a fairly decent choice as far as dessert goes, as well as a few thoughts on some nutritional lessons I've learned from my time in Australia.
Happy Halloween from Nutripol! With this sweet-filled holiday just around the corner, we're bringing you a Think About It on a few of the most popular treats. Different candies have different nutritional makeups that can be successfully integrated into any type of dietary plan, so we've put together a small list of Nutripol-endorsed treats for your Halloweekend! Besides, what better excuse to eat your favourite childhood candy?
After the success of Nutripol’s first alcohol-related Think About It on tequila, we’re bringing you the next drink in the series -- Vodka Red Bull ® ! This common cocktail mixes alcohol and caffeine and is an especially popular order amongst millennials. Read on to see if alcohol and caffeine really “cancel each other out,” and learn about the effects of taking these two together.
If you like frothy coffee, then a cappuccino is probably one of your favourite espresso-based beverages. This is my go-to order if I'm at a nice coffee shop and feel like indulging in a treat, or need a pick-me-up to make it through the day (perks of not being addicted to caffeine). However, I realised as of late that I couldn't adequately describe exactly what it meant to order a cappuccino. I knew it was loosely related to the ratio of milk, espresso, and foam, but that was about it. That ratio is important to know both from a taste and a nutrition perspective, so I decided to find out.
Unless you have a hazelnut allergy, you’re probably well aware of how delicious Nutella is. I love Nutella and it was personally painful for me to write this (ignorance is truly bliss), but it was highly requested and probably for the best. So, without further adieu, enjoy this Think About It on Nutella!
