If You're Wondering Why Classic 7 Up Was So Much Tastier Than Modern 7 Up, It's Probably Because It Used To Have Lithium In It

Filed under: DrugsWacky, Tacky & TrueFoodScience!

7 Up used to have a very interesting ingredient in their recipe!

There are several theories out there about how 7 Up got its name, but the one that seems to make the most sense is that it's actually referring to the seven ingredients that make up the tasty beverage!

However, that just raises the even bigger question: what are these seven mystery ingredients??

Well apparently when the drink was first introduced to the masses way back in the day, it contained a super special element known as lithium!

Drown Your Meat In This Simple And Delicious 4th Of July BBQ Sauce!!

Happy 4th of July! I'm looking forward to a day by the pool, and some action on the grill. BBQ is one of my favorite foods in the entire world, so here is a BBQ sauce recipe that can be ready in minutes without the preservatives and fake ingredients of the store bought brands. Customize your sauce by adding a splash of hot sauce, garlic, liquid smoke - or even whiskey!

1 cup ketchup
1/4 sweetener (brown sugar, molasses, honey or agave)
1 Tbsp mustard (I like a super spicy dijon)
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients to small saucepan over medium heat, and stir until combined. Bring to a boil, and continue stirring until all ingredients are dissolved and reduced (about 5-10 minutes). Use as a marinade or dipping sauce for your favorite meat, and enjoy!

It wouldn't be a Super Bowl party without the spinach dip! Here is an easy and healthy version that is better than the fake stuff you find in the deli section. If you like hot spinach dip, add 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese, and bake at 400 for 15 minutes until the top begins to bubble.

1 box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 1/2 cups plain greek yogurt (substitute 1/2 cup sour cream or mayo for richer flavor)
1 packet onion soup mix
1/2 cup chopped water chestnuts, red bell pepper or artichoke hearts

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and voila! Serve with your favorite chips or bread, and enjoy!

Gatorade Removes Flame Retardant Ingredient After 15-Year-Old's Petition

Filed under: FoodHealth

gatorade-flame-retardant-removed-petition.jpg

Okay, so if you're somewhat confused, we understand. We're just learning this too.

Gatorade apparently has an ingredient, brominated vegetable oil (BVO), that can be used as a flame retardant!

When in Gatorade, BVO actually keeps certain flavors mixed in, or else the flavoring ingredient would float to the surface of the drink.

Sarah Kavanaugh, 15, realized people probably shouldn't be drinking BVO, so she started a petition on Change.org.

And PepsiCo, owner of Gatorade, listened! They're replacing the ingredient! That was easy!

Subway could take a page out of Pepsi's book! LOLz!

It's so amazing that they reacted so quickly to the online petition. They just saved themselves a lot of consumer grief.

Way to go, Sarah!
