Re: “Get fit: Hit up a Charlotte brewery

There's going to be a 5k race at Olde Mecklenburg on September 6th called the Growler Gallop. Winners get a growler of beer.

Re: “3 questions with Pamela Roberts, cooking show host

I watched your program with interest until I saw you pour the vegetable cooking oil from the fried chicken into the large sink. As a property owner of rental units, I was appalled knowing what the grease would do to the plumbing as it goes from a liquid to a solid as the grease cools. Please do not perpetuate doing this in the future for novice cooks to replicate.

Ponycarfan raises a good question: what's gonna happen to the Penguin sign? Do you know, Kim?

Re: “The Big Reveal: What's replacing the Penguin?

I feel slightly responsible for the Thomas Street Tavern name, not sure how that happened, I was only a helper so I can't remember exactly how it got that name but I know I was working on the menu and stuff back then with the original people (could still be the same people I have no idea) in the rubble of the post office. I never thought about it though until I read this lol. Looking forward to Comida my favorite food in the world.

Typo in the subhead - should be Comida, not Comdia.

Re: “Eating With Your Dollars: The best fast food money can buy

To everyone with questions about fiber in juicing or including fruit-- it is fine to use a blender in some cases, especially if the vegetable contains mostly soluble fiber or you are throwing in a few good fruits (which typically contain more soluble fiber than leafy greens). The juicing process keeps most of the soluble fiber from the vegetables intact, it just removes the insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber slows digestion just enough to let your body completely absorb all those important nutrients. Leafy greens like the ones in green juice contain a lot of insoluble fiber which at times can push it through your system too fast for you to get the important nutrients. That's why juicing is good. It is an abundance of insoluble fiber that you should watch out for-- since your body cannot digest it, it quickly goes through your system resulting in faster bowel movements, but less time for your body to absorb those important vitamins and minerals. It is not always a bad thing though-- especially if you are constipated it can be a quick fix. So if you are juicing mainly vegetables and can't stand the taste, throwing in a few low sugar fruits with high soluble fiber can be tastier and more beneficial. Or if you are blending your fruits and veggies rather than juicing, make sure you have more soluble fiber rich items than insoluble.

If you are accustomed to the taste of veggies, then by all means, follow Vani's suggestions to a T because it is definitely valuable information. Just remember to always do your research and to keep both sources of fiber in your diet in some form for a healthy digestive system.

Here are a few links to help explain:
