Water Smoothie for Hangovers
This 'cure' might terrify you when you see it, because
its a big cup of emerald-green smoothie that looks
like an alligator hacked up a loogie. You have to navigate
a brightly-lit health food store to get to the restaurant
at the back, but wear your shades and get you a glass
of goodness. Your dehydrated and aching brain will thank
you for the effort.
If Starbucks' juice foray goes as planned, it may join
the likes of Disney(DIS), PepsiCo(PEP) and Google(GOOG)
in benefitting from an opportunistic diversification,
just as few are watching. It also would be another big
move for Starbucks' aged-Sumatra loving Chief Executive
Howard Schultz, who was named the business person of
the year by Fortune Magazine in December.
Sushi and Smoothies?
Walgreens is trying a new approach at an old location:
State and Randolph. The Deerfield-based drugstore giant
is reopening Tuesday with a new format that shows just
how high-end it can go, with a $450 imported wine and
a $192 skin-care cream sitting amid a gleaming, well-lit
smorgasbord of sushi, serve-yourself yogurt and an iPad-equipped
health guide at the pharmacy clinic.
you Drinking Plastic?
Their material is really the whey protein, the same
stuff you might mix into a post-workout smoothie. When
heated in a process called "denaturing," the
protein molecules change shape. When sprayed onto a
surface, such as plastic wrap, they form a thin, flexible
layer that helps protect food from oxygen and moisture,
the researchers say.
