When it comes to culture, we’re interested in lots of it… music, art, sport, and most of all, food.

Here’s what we’re into this week:


1) The Best Pumpkin Spice Recipes on the Internet | Tasting Table

 

Fall is in full swing, and while the weather can’t quite make up its mind, we have: It’s time for pumpkin everything! This culmination of all the best pumpkin-related recipes sold us hook line and sinker.

2) The Fats You Don’t Need to Fear, and the Carbs That You Do | New York Times

 

Engrained in the American culture is a fear of fats, in large part due to decades-old dietary guidelines urging the population to be aware of their fat intake. While the focus was intended to be only on saturated and trans fats, many took it to mean all fats are bad; this connotation of “fats” is what many health professionals are working to alter, while drawing attention to those harmful carbs that we should probably be limiting instead.

3) 6 Money-Saving Grocery Myths (and How They Really Stack Up) | The Kitchn

Fox Foundation and its dedicated strides toward a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. With all of the medical and technological advances we have accomplished in the last 30 years, who can imagine where we will be in another 30 years?
