We Are Still Here!

After a much needed break from posting the blog, we have returned!

And for the hot weather coming this week, we thought we’d help you cool off….

With a spicy Shishito Pepper and Cured Lemon-Aglio Olio sauce tossed with

whole grain noodles, or,

 Tagliarini Integrale.  


It’s a scientifical fact, eating spicy foods actually helps you cool off:

Eating spicy foods raises your internal temperature to match the temperature outside. Your blood circulation increases, you start sweating and once your moisture has evaporated, you’ve cooled off. Scientists call the phenomenon “gustatory facial sweating,” because indeed you usually start sweating in the face first.

-some scientist somewhere

See, you can’t argue with science.
