This New York Restaurant created a 100 Proof Super Bowl Pizza

For the 51st Super Bowl, Vero Cafe in Manhattan created the world’s only 100 Proof Pizza. The pizza was made using 100 proof Georgi Blue Vodka (Blue is the official color of the New England Patriots.)

For those Atlanta Falcons fans, Vero Cafe also baked pizzas with Georgi Peach Vodka (Georgia is the Peach State.)

“People are looking to drink and eat during the Super Bowl, so why not combine the two,” said restaurant owner and pizza pie mastermind Sammy Musovic. “It’s a beautiful marriage.”

Unfortunately (or fortunately), these alcohol-infuzed pizzas were only available on Super Bowl Sunday… at least for now.

Healthy Super Bowl Chili

The Super Bowl is not usually associated with losing weight, unless of course you are one of the football players in it.

It is even more likely you will gain weight it you are a man over 40. When men’s testosterone levels are low, they face muscle loss, low energy and loss of sex drive. Additionally, their body stores most of the food they eat as belly fat, says Clark Bartram, 53, Performance & Nutrition Industry Expert for Six Pack Abs, and Lead Advisor to the International Sports Sciences Association.

Rather than get testosterone treatments or “legal steroids” (with frequent side effects) from a physician, Bartram says, “Let food be your medicine.”

The fats in red meat as well as salmon and tuna boost testosterone, he said.  Other such foods are: almonds, garlic, eggs, cabbage, spinach, asparagus, avocados, bananas, watermelon, citrus fruit, grapes, and honey.

For Super Bowl chili, adding white button mushrooms are a key ingredient to blocking estrogen, the female version of testosterone.  Estrogen can cause a man to bloat, develop breast tissue and store more fat around the waist.  Rising estrogen levels also cause your belly fat to start producing a testosterone killing chemical that creates even more estrogen.

Simple and Delicious Pasta Recipe for your Leftover Holiday Poultry

Goose Pasta recipe

Goose Pasta recipe

You don’t have to spend all day creating great dishes from your leftover Holiday goose, turkey or chicken. Here is a quick and simple pasta recipe that will taste like it was the first course.

Ingredients:

Leftover poultry (pulled from bone)
One large onion, diced
One garlic clover, diced
Olive Oil
4 Tbs Butter
1 Tsp Ginger Powder (or fresh diced ginger)
1 Tsp Mustard Powder (Coleman’s or another brand)
Salt & Pepper

 

PREPARATION

  1. Fill a sauce pan or pot with enough water for your pasta, add a teaspoon of salt, then bring water to a boil.
  2. In a sauté pan or a skillet, add olive oil, then heat over medium-high flame.
  3. When the olive oil is hot, add one diced onion, and one diced garlic clove. You do not have to use the entire clove, but at least 1 tablespoon of diced garlic. Sauté onion and garlic until soft, then add ground pepper to taste.
  4. Add pasta to your boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. We have used penne, but you can use any pasta that interests you. You do not want to cook the pasta completely, but you do want it to be al dente. If you cook the pasta all the way through, then in the next step your pasta may wind up becoming somewhat soft and mushy.
  5. In the skillet with your sautéed onions and garlic, add ginger powder and mustard powder, approximately 1 teaspoon each.
  6. Add salt to taste

    Add pulled pieces of your leftover poultry to the sauce in your sautee skillet (in this recipe we have used cooked goose from Schiltz Farms, but you can use leftover turkey or chicken if you desire)

  8. Add 4 tablespoons of butter to your sauce. Allow to melt and stir into your sauce thoroughly.
  9. Remove and drain pasta from the boiling water, then slowly add the pasta into the skillet and stir into the sauce. Continue to sauté over heat for approximately five minutes, or until you feel that the flavors of the sauce have begun to be absorbed by the pasta.
  10. Add salt to taste, and if you wish, you may also add grated cheese.
  11. Remove from heat
