Too Many Women in the Kitchen

Two-thirds of men will help out in the kitchen this holiday season, says new research, which is kind of high! But what are the other 33.33333333333(etc)% of men doing? Not even so much as "lifting a finger." In a study, these wimps listed "lack of confidence, previous failures and complicated recipes" as reasons for not helping out. Also, they are under the impression that their significant others are "happy to take care of everything culinary." The meat company that conducted the study (?) says women need to get everyone to help out, so, OK, once again we're in charge…of getting other people to attempt being in charge.

Would You Like a Side of Crickets With Those Pancakes?

"Insects are approximately 10 times more eco-friendly than beef. Insects offer us an opportunity to rethink and move away from pork and beef." —A zoologist on why it's greener to stop eating bacon and start eating bugs. Great idea in theory, but aren't exoskeletons are a dealbreaker for most of us? Though one chef does make locusts coated in chocolate and salted caramel, which maybe could be….Nope, nevermind, can't do it.


Unfortunate Week for Meat

Even Plants Don't Want to Die

"Before you hit 'send' on your hate mail, let me say this. Different people have diff"—SEND. Just kidding. If you're a vegetarian because you think animals feel pain and plants don't, get ready to have your mind "release a bouquet of volatile chemicals, which in some cases have been shown to induce neighboring plants to pre-emptively step up their own chemical defenses." Does nothing want to die? Man.
