Alicia Silverstone Grossly Bird Feeds Her Baby Gross Meal

Alicia Silverstone maintains a GOOP-like lifestyle website called The Kind Life, meant to promote “living your healthiest and happiest life to the fullest, while taking care of mama Earth at the same time!” Fantastic. Well today she posted the following treasure accompanied by the above video:

I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!

Look, everyone has their own style of mothering and it is not for us to decide which path is the right- JUST KIDDING. No. Nope. She should stop this immediately. Also, what the what is nori wrapped daikon? Stop this circus at once. Bear has a right to pizza and teeth.

Vegetarian Burger Recipes for Health – NYTimes.com

For burger lovers who want to cut back on meat, vegetarian burgers can be a tasty and healthful way to recreate the burger experience. In this week’s Recipes for Health, Martha Rose Shulman offers five ways to create vegetarian burgers at home.

She writes:

I wanted to work on veggie burgers because I have never had a commercial one that I liked. They all taste overprocessed to me, with no fresh flavors. I’ve had much better luck making burgers from Luke Volger’s excellent cookbook “Veggie Burgers Every Which Way.” I especially like his bean and vegetable combos.

Puréed beans make a great binder for grain and vegetable burgers, and an egg added to the mixture will help to hold it together. (If you want to keep them vegan you can, though you have to be careful when you flip the burgers over because they tend to fall apart.) I found that all of these burgers somehow tasted better a day after they were assembled ― the flavors had gelled, the burgers held together better, and a burger that seemed a bit dry to me right after cooking did not seem so dry the next day when reheated. I can’t tell you why.

Think Facebook’s $100 Billion Valuation Is Nuts? Read This

leave a comment »

We’re all awaiting with bated breath for the Facebook S-1 to drop this week. According to various leaks, Facebook’s operating profit was around $1.5 billion in 2011 and its revenues were something like $4 billion. We’ll know soon enough whether that’s true, but if so, it makes Facebook’s reported $85-100 billion valuation sound insane.Is it? Well, anyone can argue that it’s high. But we don’t think it’s insane. First of all, the value of an asset is the net present value of its future cashflows. This means that a company’s value doesn’t depend on how much revenue it generates today, but on the profits it’s going to generate in the future. The value of the current financials is in helping someone figure out what are going to be the future financials. That’s more of an art than a science, obviously. But we have to remember that assessing whether a valuation is insane is about assessing the future of an asset. So, what’s Facebook’s future like? It’s very bright.
