I haven't had a dairy hot chocolate in a couple years, so I can't really say how it tastes different. I really like it and I enjoy almond milk a lot, although rice milk in my coffee is pretty tasty. I think the big thing with this is to be sure you sweeten it with your preferred sweetener to your sweetness level. Start with 1 Tbsp equivalent and go up to 3 at most.

Running an ultra is on my bucket list. 

The study itself seemed very wishy-washy.

My bucket list includes a less ambitious marathon, though I am fascinated by the ultra events and greatly admire people who do them. I'd be really interested in cross cultural comparisons... Like Americans/westerners vs Tarahumara and Kenyans. Also the effect of different diets, as both the latter populations maintain the very traditional diets of starches/legumes plus veggies and some meat. The diets of the Americans would vary widely, from totally low fat plant-based through to pizzas and beer. I'd imagine that as there is more stress put on the body for long periods of time, the importance of clean burning fuel would increase enormously. (Too bad Jim Fixx didn't believe that.)

UviBee Cosplay helped me out by providing an overview of the GeekGirlCon '13 panel, Bullying in Cosplay. What a great panel! And there will be more great panels at GeekGirlCon '14, which you can already get your tickets for!

Vegan Keto Fat Bombs
In an effort to lose weight, I tried a keto diet while still being vegan. There seems to be enough interest in this diet for me to post some of my recipes. Some recipes are more recipe and some are more guides. This one is more recipe than guide, but I sugg...

4 women in different communities of my life shared this with me today. Read it, in its entirety, if you know a woman who goes online.

3rd Annual Flame Challenge Asks, "What is Color?"
 
The Flame Challenge, which dares scientists to explain a fundamental scientific question in a way that 11-year-olds can understand, is accepting entries for its 2014 competition. The Flame Challenge is a project of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, and it's co-sponsored by ACS and AAAS.
 
This year’s Flame Challenge question is, "What is Color?"  Entries are due March 1, 2014. The 11-year-old judges will select winners in two categories – written and visual. Winners will meet actor and science activist Alan Alda and receive a trip to the World Science Festival in New York City. Last year, ACS member Steven Maguire won the visual category.
 
Visit the Flame Challenge web site for complete contest details, information about how teachers can register their classes as contest judges, inspirational messages from Alan Alda, and more!
