Psychopathic Prisoners With Higher Levels Of Emotional Impairment Make Less Eye Contact
By Emma Young Imagine going to sit in a room with a violent, imprisoned psychopath and having a chat about what you both like to eat. (It’s impossible not to think of liver, fava beans and Chianti, isn’t it….?) This is exactly what one researcher did recently in Germany. But the purpose of the study, reported in Personality Disorders: Theory, Research, and Treatment wasn’t to gather data on criminal psychopaths’ dining preferences, but rather on how they make — or don’t make — eye contact during a conversation. This was the first study to explore psychopaths’ eye movements in a naturalistic ...

“Fresh fava beans make a great addition to spring...
"Fresh fava beans make a great addition to spring vegetable stew or pasta primavera. But savored on their own, mashed and smeared on freshly toasted baguette rounds, they're sensational. It's a fussy job to be sure — each bean must be peeled by hand. But this labor of love is worth it. (Hint: Ask a friend to help; the work goes faster with more than 2 hands.) @karstenmoran photographed this spring aperitivo while on assignment for @nytfood. Visit the link in our profile to get the recipe for mashed #favabean toasts." By nytimes on Instagram. Posted on infosnack. (Source: Kidney Notes)

Late Night Dinner at Five & Ten in Athens, Georgia
At first, I was really, really upset that my flight to Atlanta was delayed, making us miss our 8:30 dinner reservation at Five & Ten in Athens, Georgia. This was no ordinary dinner reservation. My brother Joe and wife Rachel had arranged a special tasting meal for us with Five & Ten’s executive chef, Jason Zygmont, who they originally met when Joe stopped into the kitchen one day last year unannounced to borrow preserving salt for some charcuterie he was making. Joe returned a few weeks later to give Jason some of the duck proscuitto he had cured, expecting to quickly drop it off with the busy chef...

Everyday Life: July 2014
We went down to Dunfermline to visit the in-laws and I spent the whole weekend sneezing and crying. Good ol’ Fife pollen. We got the royal tour of the allotment… It’s unrecognisable from the weedy wasteland we inherited back in 2011. It’s now crammed with tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, leeks, onions, carrots, pumpkins, broad beans, peas, rhubarb, courgettes and even wee apple trees. David and Mary have put so much hard work into it. Meanwhile back in Inverness there’s only one plant in our little rental back yard, but it’s a goodun. It heaved w...

My Healthiest Travel Routine Yet
By Leo Babauta On our trip to Europe the last couple of weeks, Eva and I tried a new experiment: we ate nothing like we normally do when we travel. We ended up feeling healthier than ever, and I lost 5 lbs. on the trip. This is highly unusual for us, because usually we eat pretty much whatever we feel like when we travel, and end up heavier and feeling fatter at the end of the trip. So what did we do differently? We ate no breads, sweets, potatoes, or white rice (in addition to not drinking beer or cocktails, only red wine). This is in addition, of course, to not eating meat, seafood, poultry, dairy or eggs (we’re...

How to Eat Real Food Without Spending Hours in the Kitchen
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Jules Clancy of Stonesoup. Are you eating real, whole food as much as you’d like? If you’ve been following Zen Habits for any length of time, you’ve probably been inspired by Leo’s story. My favorite part is how he went from being an overweight junk food eater to a lean, plant-food-loving machine. Like Leo, I’m a big believer that for optimum health it’s best to eat real, whole food as much as possible. Preferably prepared at home. The good news is, it doesn’t need to take as much time as you’d think. When I was writing my b...
