Things you should never compost

Remember the good ol' days — back when we only had one bin for trash? In retrospect, those days were actually more wasteful than good. Today, most of us have a compost bin. They're great for reducing curbside trash, but not everything is suitable for those bins.

We've rounded up a list of things people mistakenly try to compost. We chose items generally avoided by experienced compost gurus. Ready?

LIVESTRONG's gut-health reset

Time for a gut check. No, really: How's your digestive system doing? If you've been feeling bloated, gassy and/or sluggish, your gut could be trying to tell you something's up. And when your gastrointestinal (GI) tract isn't working like it should be, your overall health struggles, too.

That's why the LIVESTRONG.com team has partnered with Vincent Pedre, MD, author of Happy Gut and creator of the 28-Day Happy Gut Cleanse and the Happy Gut app, for The 30-Day Gut-Health Reset, which starts on September 1, 2020.

Fruit pies showcasing Summer produce

No dessert seems to so perfectly represent summer like pie, with its crisp, flaky crust and sweet innards. From classic cherry and peach to smooth delights like banana cream, there's a perfect pie for every fruit fan.

And they're not all double-crust, lattice-topped affairs; we have several easy options with simple press-in pie crusts below—and you can turn any pie into a crumble-topped creation (similar to Dutch apple pie) if you don't want to fuss with a top crust (let alone decoration).

Turn your favorite fruit into Yogurt Pops

Close your eyes and picture the most perfect fruit-yogurt popsicle. Now, think about the qualities that make it good. Are there splashes of vibrant fruity color peeking out from yogurt's off-white tones? Is it creamy, rich, and smooth? Is the texture light or dense?

I tried these questions by developing recipes for three different fruit-yogurt pops: blueberry, raspberry, and mango, and I succeeded in creating ones that checked all the boxes—these frozen treats have a creamy, velvety smooth texture; just the right amount of bite; and a well-balanced flavor that blends tangy yogurt and sweet, rich fruit.

Intermittent Fasting: Fights weight loss plan

Intermittent fasting is a way of losing weight that favors flexibility over calorie counting. It restricts the time you are allowed to eat, which reduces calorie intake by limiting opportunities to eat. That's the theory, at least.  Conducted over three days, this study aimed to find out how eating and physical activity changed around a period of calorie restriction.

Who makes best tortilla chips

Tortilla chips are the quintessential party food. But these days, we're reminded that they make a great pantry staple, too. I'm finding even more uses for them: The last crumbly bits in the bottom of a bag make a crunchy mix-in for a salad, and a slightly stale stash is great in chilaquiles.  Grocery shelves are crowded with a head-spinning array of options. So we collected 14 varieties, including the top-selling brands in the United States and popular grocery store private labels.

Satch Squared

Satch Squared nuthin like Satchel's

By Mike Sanford. GLOB EDITOR

Satchels2sfSatchel's has a new second location in the SE 4th Ave food court. Like the original Satchel's Pizza, the new restaurant, Satch Squared, sells pizza and is owned by Satchel Raye. After that the two restaurants have little in common because at Satch Squared, you can get another square delight – waffles, for breakfast.

I think the SE 4th Ave Food Park is a good idea. Now with pizza, a sausage market, tacos, and a bakery along with burgers across the street, the SE lunch options are growing.

Satchels2boxSatch Squared is pretty much a walk up window with outside seating in the restaurant park, and an entirely different kind of pizza – it's square and served in a box. In a world of unique pizza ideas, Satchel has come up with another way to serve pizza he calls Detroit Pizza: a chunky sauce over yeast-embedded flour that creates a thick, light crust with all the toppings.

My friend, Lynn Dirk, and I tried the pizza, and I am glad I took Lynn along as she is a fan of Leonardo's Pizza because of their crust which isn't far from what Satchel is creating on SE 4th Ave.

Satch Squared, in addition to Detroit pizza, also includes a gluten-free pan pizza that is celiac safe. The vegan pizza here has a blend of 3 vegan cheeses including cashew cheese and vegan butter crust says Satchel on the Satch Squared Facebook Page.

Satchel was taking a lunch break himself and sitting outside when Lynn and I arrived, and he did a good job of updating us on the opening of the new shop and the goings on at the original pizza shop while we waited for our pizza.

"I've been over here a lot lately, it's a good thing there are good people running the other store." He said.

Lynn likes to consider herself a vegetarian so we ordered a 2-topping for our pizza: black olives and red peppers. We waited excitedly to see what Detroit Pizza would look and taste like.

The pizza was good. I am more of a thin crust person but this was good pizza. The toppings had EAT ME written all over them and there was enough tomato sauce to cover all the crust.

072920SatchelsWAFFLELynn works at the Sun Center just up the road on Main St. and is eager to also try the waffles that are also sold at Satch Squared.

"I love waffles," Lynn said. Satchel explained he has a special recipe. His waffles are not the Belgian spongy waffles. His are thinner and crusty on the outside. He uses old fashioned seasoned cast iron waffle irons and has about 6 of them. As we were leaving, I could see the gears in Lynn's head figuring out when she would be back for some of those waffles

The new box for take out is perfect for four slices of pizza, two slices for me and two for Lynn. Drinks and pizza totaled $20. Not a bad price for a lunch or dinner.

Stay tuned.

Know your food

You don't even need a recipe, to know and cook your food. The other day I had a fire going for steaks and a big head of cauliflower in the fridge. I trimmed it of greens, put it in a Dutch oven and covered it with an emulsified dressing of minced garlic, anchovies, oil and red-pepper flakes. I had a creamy, sliceable delight on my hands, to go with my steaks. You can do that, too, and ought to.

California's last wolf pack

It's impossible to know what the wolf was feeling as she awakened from a deep slumber on that warm summer day in 2006. Did the silver-gray beast notice the radio tracking collar now adorning her neck, affixed by biologists while she was unconscious? Either way, when the drugs wore off, she simply lumbered away into the distance. Nobody could have known that the animal from then on called B-300 would make lupine history as the matriarch of a family tree that spans Idaho, Oregon, and California.

"Through [GPS] cluster data and scat, we know that they're eating deer most of the time. There is cattle in there, but wolves are able scavengers, more than happy to feed on a cattle carcass, so those are in the mix, too," says Kent Laudon, the only full-time wolf biologist employed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife—and the first in perhaps a century to hold that job description—of the Lassen Pack. They are living proof that wolves can thrive, mostly peacefully, in California.
