NATIONAL GREASY FOODS DAY

National Greasy Foods Day is celebrated annually on October 25th.

Although not the healthiest of choices, every once in awhile it is okay to enjoy some greasy food, when it is done in moderation.  From fried chicken, pizza, nachos, french fries to bacon and hash brown potatoes, we all like a treat in our regular diet.

Cooking oil types include:

Olive oil – Palm oil – Soybean oil – Canola oil – Pumpkin oil – Corn oil – Sunflower oil – Safflower oil – Peanut oil – Grape seed oil – Sesame oil = Agran oil – Rice bran oil – Other vegetable oils – Butter and lard.

Oil may be flavored with aromatic flavorings such as herbs, chillies or garlic.

“Greasy” foods can be prepared with the “better for you oils” and using much less than normal amounts of oil when cooking.

With the above tip, Have a Happy National Greasy Foods Day!

NATIONAL FOOD DAY

It was in the year 2011 when the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) initiated a new project, National Food Day, which is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable and sustain-ably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies.  This project builds throughout the year and culminates on October 24 of each year.

One of the targets that Food Day aims to help people is to “Eat Real”, which is defined by them as “cutting back on sugar drinks, overly salted packaged foods and fatty, factory-farmed meats in favor of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and sustain-ably raised protein.  National Food Day involves some of the country’s most prominent food activists, united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable and produced with care for the environment, farm animals and the people who grow, harvest and serve it.

In 2012, there were 3,200 events that took place from community festival to a national conference in Washington, D.C. to thousands of school activities.

HAPPY NATIONAL FOOD DAY!

National Mole Day

You may be thinking that this day is in honor of the little burrowing creature however, it is not.  National Mole Day is celebrated by chemists and chemistry students  each year on the 23rd of October,

Today’s celebration takes place between 6:02 AM and 6:02 PM, making the date 6:02 10/23 in the American style of writing dates. The time and date are derived from Avogadro’s number, which is approximately 6.02×10^23, defining the number of particles (atoms or molecules) in one mole of substance, one of the seven base SI units.

  • Mole is a unit of measurement used in chemistry to express amounts of a chemical substance.
  • Avogadro’s number, is a historical term closely related to the Avogadro constant.
  • The Avogadro constant is named after the early 19th century Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro.

HAPPY NATIONAL MOLE DAY.
