There's Something (Shell) Fishy About This Seafood-Inspired Beer
A brewery in southwest England has given one of its beers a real shellfish twist. The Wild Beer Co used 30 live lobsters ― plus cockles, Kombu seaweed, sea salt, sea herbs, star anise and saffron ― to produce its 7 percent brew, called Of The Sea. Initial reaction to the concept was “mixed,” the company’s co-founder Andrew Cooper told HuffPost during a tasting at its brewery near Shepton Mallet in Somerset this month. “But we’d far rather brew something genuinely interesting and one that gets an emotional reaction from people than just another beer,” he added. Inspiration for the dr...

Let's Unwrap The Mystery Of How Lactaid Works
We often eat our daily meals without even realizing all the things we don’t know about our food. Like the fact that cinnamon comes from the bark of a tree. Or that saffron is the stigma of an orchid. Our recent eggnog taste test made us wonder about another interesting food ― Lactaid, which surprisingly won the taste test. How on earth does Lactaid work, anyway? We’ve seen Lactaid milk at the supermarket for years, but what in the world is it, actually? Is it even real milk? If you realize you have that same question, you have come to the right place. We have answers. Most milk sensitivities are a r...

10 Of My Favorite Birth Practices Around The World
There is a lot of pressure for births to be a great experience, which can cause many women to feel inadequate. Cord Mama even speaks of the Dangerous Myth of an Ideal Birth: "just like none of our bodies can live up to that elusive standard of the "ideal woman," none of our birth stories will ever be perfect." And I agree with her wholeheartedly- I felt very ashamed for not giving birth without help the first time around. But it was not my fault- she was positioned the wrong way and had to turn, which meant that it was hard for me to give birth to her. It doesn't however discourage me from visualizi...

5 Mislabeled and Counterfeit Foods That Prove Expensive Meals Can Be Costly Lies
This article was originally posted on Inverse. By Kashann Kilson Traditionally, counterfeit foods have been reserved for ultra-high priced items well outside the budget of the average consumer.

Why are some people happy and some are miserable? Why do some people who struggle with depression find ways to pull themselves out of if they implement some proven tools?
