Celebrate Whole Grains Month with sweet corn and other favorites

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest September is Whole Grains Month. Paul asked me why is it Whole Grains Month? I told him it is because the Whole Grains Council wants to promote whole grains. He says it can’t be as important as Dairy Month. It is just as important. However, in today’s crazy food label world it just adds to the confusing food label lingo. Who knows what a whole grain is and how is it different than whole wheat? What does enriched mean? And the list goes on…The Whole Grains Council states that “Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver approximately the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed.” Basically that means that whole grains are whole grains but even when a grain has been processed and all the parts are still in a product, it can claim it’s a whole grain. Some common whole grains include Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn, including whole cornmeal and popcorn, millet, oats, including oatmeal, quinoa, rice, both brown rice and colored rice, Rye, Teff, Triticale, Wheat, including varieties such as spelt, emmer, farro, einkorn, Kamut, durum and forms such as bulgur, cracked wheat and wheatberries and wild rice. To answer the whole wheat question, think of it like this: whole wheat is to whole grains like green beans are to vegetables.Recently during a wellness talk to Union County employees about whole grains, another great question came up. What is enriched? Enriched has nothing to do with whole grains and is a term from the FDA that states a product has added at least 10% more of the daily value of a single nutrient — typically vitamins and/or minerals — than the product had to begin with. For example enriched flour has been enriched with folic acid, iron and other minerals.It takes time to learn all the label lingo and to be able to decipher the truth. But why must we include whole grains you ask? The Mayo Clinic states: “Whole grains are better sources of fiber and other important nutrients, such as selenium, potassium and magnesium. So whenever you can, choose whole grains over refined grains.” Basically the more processed grains you eat, the more the nutrients have been greatly reduced.Did you notice corn in the whole grain list? How many kernels does the “average” ear of corn have? 800 arranged in 16 rows. What did one ear of corn say to the other ear of corn? Don’t look now but I think someone is stalking us. Corny jokes aside, corn is probably the all-time favorite whole grain in the Detwiler family. We love corn in most any form — sweet corn and popcorn being our favorite. Sweet corn is great side dish and can be included in a healthy diet. One medium ear has 90 calories, 18 grams of carbs, four grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat, and two grams of fiber. Corn is the best dietary source of two antioxidants called Lutein and zeaxanthin. These yellow pigments play a significant role in good eye health. Everyone seems to have their favorite way to cook it boil it, grill it and recently I even tried microwaving it. It’s all yummy. The best tips are to eat it the day it’s picked. If you can’t, chilling it helps keep the sugar content up. We started growing popcorn just to support Paul’s popcorn habit, which exceeds three gallons a week! Ruby Red is his favorite, which is a smaller kernel with less hull packed with more flavor. Popcorn is a great snack if you can skip all the butter on it. Three cups has only 90 calories, one gram of fat, 18 grams of carbs, and three grams of fiber.Celebrate whole grains month by including some of these great tasting “whole grain” corn recipes.Two-corn polenta with tomatoes, basil and cheese 2 teaspoons olive oil 2 cups chopped onion (2 medium) 4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth 2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears) 2 garlic cloves, chopped 1 cup instant dry polenta 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 cup chopped tomato 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil  Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat.

FS1’s Tim Brando: Notre Dame Will Eventually Join ACC Football, Is Key To Conference Launching Network

first_imgA Notre Dame cheerleader holding pompoms with the Notre Dame flag in the background.SOUTH BEND, IN – SEPTEMBER 30: A Notre Dame Fighting Irish cheerleader performs during a game against the Miami (Oh) Redhawks at Notre Dame Stadium on Seotember 30, 2017 in South Bend, Indiana. Notre Dame defeated Miami (OH) 52-17. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)This week, there has been a lot of noise made about the future of a possible ACC Network, which has been long discussed as a possibility for the league with ESPN. In a column on Campus Rush, Sports Illustrated‘s Pete Thamel called the network “imminent.” FOX Sports 1’s Tim Brando, who also calls ACC basketball games for Raycom Sports, doesn’t quite believe that we’ll see an ACC Network all that soon, but he does think it is coming, and the lynchpin to a launch is Notre Dame joining as a full conference member. That, he believes, will happen.Brando previously discussed Notre Dame’s role in the eventuality of the ACC Network on Twitter, and cleared things up a bit on “The Audible” podcast with Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel. Notre Dame/ACC talk starts around the 18-minute mark.On the ACC Network:“I do believe it’s going to happen, and I believe it’s going to happen when Notre Dame understands that it’s in their financial best interest to be in a conference, because they cannot command the same dollar from NBC or any other network by simply having seven home games televised. If you look at the revenues generated by both the Big Ten, the SEC, and the ACC without a network, as a conference member full time, they would, not only right now but certainly in the future, do much better than they are doing with their current arrangement. And I think that’s where we sit.”Brando says that if Notre Dame joins a conference in the next 10 years, the ACC is the only option:“No, Notre Dame cannot have a wandering eye. They not only signed a grant of rights with the ACC, but they signed an additional contract, which mandates that if they do become a conference member in football, there is no other place they can do that other than the Atlantic Coast Conference. And that’s through the year 2025. So (ACC commissioner) John Swofford and his people did a remarkable job when they brought Notre Dame in, to secure that when the Irish blue bloods decided ‘you know what, maybe it’s time to join a conference,’ they need to do that.”Perhaps most surprisingly, he predicts that this will unfold in the next three years.“I really believe that as we move forward, it’s a little early to be thinking about starting a linear network now, given the economics… It may not be the time in a year or two years, but in three years I believe you’ll be looking right down the pipe at an ACC Network, and I think the reason will be Notre Dame elected to become a full-time member.”The ACC is often viewed as the weakest of the Power 5 conferences, although with the Big 12’s issues, and the recent success of Clemson and Florida State, as well as a slew of strong hires this year, the league appears to be on solid ground. If it does, in fact, bring Notre Dame into the fold as a full member, it would be a massive coup for Swofford and company.[FOX Sports]last_img read more

Quebec court authorizes racial profiling class action against Montreal police

first_imgMONTREAL — A Quebec Superior Court judge has authorized a class action against the City of Montreal on behalf of citizens who allege they were unfairly arrested and racially profiled by the city’s police.Justice Andre Prevost ruled on Aug. 7 that the claimants met the criteria to proceed.The Black Coalition of Quebec filed the class action request on behalf of non-Caucasian citizens who were unjustly stopped, arrested or detained by Montreal police between Aug. 14, 2017 and Jan 11, 2019 and who suffered racial profiling or violations of their rights.The lead plaintiff is Alexandre Lamontagne, a man of Haitian origin who claims that in Aug. 2017 he was standing on the street checking his cell phone when he was questioned by two police officers.  He was arrested and charged with obstructing police work and assault with the intention of resisting arrest, but the charges were later dropped.In his ruling, Prevost said the class action would address a number of questions, including whether city representatives acted in a discriminatory fashion and violated the rights of the plaintiffs.The Black Coalition said in a statement that it believes the lawsuit will reduce instances of abuse and racial profiling by giving black and cultural communities access to justice.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
