This Black Ice Cream Will Cure Your Hangover
Scratch Restaurants in Encino, California, have created an ice cream cone made with coconut milk, homemade sprinkles, and activated charcoal, the latter of which gives the dessert its distinctive black color. The dessert is served at the end of Scratch’s tasting menu, and it’s perfect for an end-of-the-meal digéstif or as a hangover cure, owner Margarita Kallas-Lee told Vice’s Munchies. "Whenever I was feeling ill or she wanted me to detox, [my grandmother] always gave me charcoal," Kallas-Lee said. "It creates this beautiful color and it also is unbelievable for you to have after dinner."
Eat Like Tom Brady With His New Meal Subscription Service
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele are known for their restrictive eating habits: Brady won’t eat any processed foods, completely eliminates sugar and fruit, and has never had a drink of coffee. Brady’s new meal subscription service, launched in collaboration with The Purple Carrot, offers a meal kit that is almost (but not quite) as limiting. The TB12 Performance Meals are vegan, gluten-free, totally free of processed foods, and restrictive regarding soy and sugar. For $78 per week, subscribers can cook and enjoy high-performance meals that are almost completely plant-based. "Eating meals just like the ones we'll send out to our customers has helped me stay at the top of my game, and it's really exciting to be able to deliver the recipes and ingredients for people to easily cook these meals at home," Brady said in a press release.
The Queen of England Drinks Champagne Every Day
Never one to shirk her responsibility as representative of the royal palate, Queen Elizabeth II, 90, enjoys a glass of Champagne every evening, according to a recent report by Business Insider. Her preferred brands are Bollinger, Krug, Lanson, and Pol Roger. The nightly glass of Champagne before retiring to her bedchamber is not the only alcohol the Queen indulges in daily — she also reportedly enjoys a gin and Dubonnet (a sweet, wine-based apéritif) with a slice of lemon on the rocks daily before lunch. The queen is reportedly not a huge fan of wine, but it is kept in the palace, of course.
