Moo-ve Over, There’s a New Milk in Town!

 

ILLUSTRATION BY FERDINAND VAN ALPHEN

 
It used to be if you were looking for an alternative to cow’s milk, your only option was soy milk. It was the first non-dairy milk to go mainstream, popping up in grocery stores and soy lattes everywhere. Soy milk fell out of favor, however, for the digestive and allergen issues it caused some people, and rice milk became the popular alternative. Almond milk soon took its place, and has held court as the nut milk of choice for a few years.

Walk into a health food store or your local hipster coffee house these days, and you’ll find a plethora of plant-based milk alternatives, from cashew to coconut, oat to hemp, and more – each claiming to be the best alternative to the alternatives, and leaving us to wonder which one we should drinking.

Plant-based nut and grain milks vary in their macronutrient composition (protein, carbohydrate and fat), and also in the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) they contain. Each have their pros and cons, and for many it comes down to personal preferences – taste, consistency, and dietary needs. For me, it’s which one makes my coffee the creamiest, and is the color closest to cow’s milk. The good news is on that front there are a number of options available in a barista or coffee creamer blend. Read More

Wimbledon 2017: Be In The Know Like A Tennis Pro!

 

ILLUSTRATIONS BY FERDINAND VAN ALPHEN  

Now in the 4th round of play, let us turn our attention across the pond to The Championships, Wimbledon! As the tournament gets into full swing, here are the 10 things you need to know to be a tennis pro…

CONGRATS TO 2017 LADIES’S SINGLES CHAMPION GARBINE MUGARUZA

 & 8-TIME MEN’S SINGLES CHAMPION ROGER FEDERER!

1. The Championships, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world.
The first Wimbledon championship took place in 1877 when only Men’s Singles were played. Ladies’ Singles and Men’s Doubles events came on the scene in 1884.

2. Wimbledon is the only major played on grass… today.
Prior to 1975, three of the four majors — the US Open, Australian Open, and Wimbledon — were all played on grass. Only the French Open was not. Wimbledon is played on the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, and during the event, the grass is cut to a height of exactly 8mm. As the tournament progresses, the wear and tear becomes obvious as the baseline gets browner and browner. This used to appear at the T, when the game was more serve and volley, but the style of play has shifted over the years to a baseline game. There is usually no play scheduled on the middle Sunday to allow the courts to recover from Week 1 and be thoroughly watered for optimum performance in Week 2.

3. The dress code is all white… and they mean it!
That includes no off-white or cream either. It is strictly enforced from head to toe, as Venus Williams learned in her first match. With a hot pink sportbra peeking out beneath her shirt, she was forced to change mid-match. Maybe it was good luck because…
