A Nutritionist with IBD Shares Her 5 Favorite Foods for Gut Health

The million-dollar question with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): “What should I eat?”

While there’s not a singular list of foods that everyone with IBD should toss in their grocery carts (food tolerances vary across the board), there are a handful of foods that stand out as my personal favorites for great gut health.

Bone broth is a food with ancient origins.

It’s made by slowly simmering animal bones with herbs, spices, and vegetables, as desired, for added flavor and nutrients.

Bone broth is rich in collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, as well as other amino acids and minerals. The practice of slowly simmering bones extracts these nutrients and ends up as an easily digestible broth.

In a 2015 study in Nutrition Journal, collagen supplementation showed to significantly reduce pain, stiffness, and physical function in people with osteoarthritis. This suggests that collagen-rich bone broth may be

A Golden Age of Local Digital Stars

This article is part of the On Tech newsletter. You can sign up here to receive it weekdays.

The global internet is becoming a little less American, and this can be both thrilling and unsettling.

I’m a tiny bit obsessed with regional e-commerce stars like Coupang in South Korea and Jumia in parts of Africa, and how they are managing to out-Amazon Amazon (so far).

Their success is evidence of what may be an evolution away from online services as a homogeneous — and largely American-dominated — global blob. And it shows we may now be on the cusp of a golden age for country-specific or regional digital specialists.

At a time when many people and elected officials are anxious about the power of mostly American and Chinese technology giants to shape what people believe and remodel economies, it’s good that there are more alternatives to Big Tech

A study by the Urban Institute, an economic and social policy think tank, found that about 1 in 7 adults in immigrant families, 13.6 percent, reported not having enrolled in programs like Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and housing subsidies last year — even though they or their relatives were eligible — because of worries that it would affect their legalization efforts.

Fine dining chef Eric Huang pivots to making fried chicken in Queens so good it has 6-week wait

FRESH MEADOWS, Queens (WABC) — As many people and businesses have had to pivot during the pandemic, a gourmet chef in NYC has found success with fried chicken. In fact, it’s become so popular you can only order it online and only if you know the secret code.

“People just really want to eat something great and have it conveniently delivered,” said Eric Huang, chef, and owner of Pecking House.

It sounds great, but fried chicken was never the plan for this former fine-dining chef.

Huang spent 10 years cooking in some of New York’s most exclusive restaurants, including Eleven Madison Park, which was voted best in the world four years ago.

He left last January with ill-fated hopes of running his own high-end kitchen.

“I was like, I want to be a Michelin star chef and that’s what I worked toward for 10 years, and then obviously
