3 Super Salads to Power You Through the Week
Are you dreading it's only Tuesday? I'm feeling the same. I barely recovered from a bad cold and my body is lacking energy. I know that because my digestive system has been a weird lately. Which is why I'm sharing three super salads to help you (and me) power through the week! Spicy Shrimp & Avocado Salad Staring at the photo alone already brighten my appetite. This green salad is filled with vitamin and good fats. Grilled some shrimp on a pan, chop up some spinach, baby kale and cucumbers, toss in a few cubes of avocado and you're done! Lime juice is sufficient for me but if you like more flavor. The original recipe uses a miso dressing. To make the dressing simple combine 1-inch peel ginger, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 1 1/2 tablespoon white miso and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adapted from: Pinch of Yum Fresh Spring Salad with Poached Cod Here's a nice salad to kick start your spring and to bring balance to your tummy. I know eating fish is healthy for me but I hardly eat them. I could only do two bites of raw salmon and I'm done. To get a little omega-3 in my diet poached cod doesn't sound like a horrible idea (I'm horrible with the skillet anyways). Just make sure you don't overcook it. 5-6 minutes in boiling water is sufficient! Take it out and plate it on a salad with parsley, beets, radishes, spring onions, pea shoots and parsley. For the dressing - 2 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil, 1/2 tbsp white balsamic vinegara, squeeze of lemon, sea salt to taste. Adapted from: Dagmar's Kitchen Edamame and Radish Salad I promise this is the simplest super salad ever. Boil a cup of edamame and toss it diced onions (or shallots) and radishes. All you need for the dressing is - 2 tablespoons vinegar, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar (no more than 1/8 teaspoon). Just before tossing everything together add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Adapted from: Alexandra Cooks Let's eat our way to a healthy week guys!

Walk with the Meerkats (Outsdhoorn, South Africa)
Ever since I saw the show "Meerkat Manor" as well as pictures of meerkats being comfortable in the presence of people, I've always wanted to see a meerkat in the wild. But, I heard that they are one of the most shy animals in Africa--making seeing them for more than a brief second nearly impossible. But recently, I heard about a man nicknamed "Meerkat Man" who is able to stay in the presence of meerkats without them running away. And, he takes tourists there to show them; the meerkats still don't run away! He is even able to make some noises and motions that imitate the meerkats' behaviors so that they are able to consistently recognize him. Seeing meerkats has become almost a tourist attraction since movies, documentaries, and shows focused on the cute animals. So, there are more and more organizations that set up tours to find them. Still, I think that going with Grant "Meerkat Man" McIlrath is the best option. He is an animal biologist who has devoted his life to studying the meerkat, and thus seems like the best person to provide instruction and information. Unlike some meerkat preservation zoos and locations, he knows the importance of the meerkats being raised in their natural environments. Meerkats cannot be reintroduced to the wild after being in captivity, or bred in captivity, because they will know have the instinctive knowledge of where their burrows are located. To go on Garth's "Walk with the Meerkats" you must make a reservation, and can stay in Oudtshoorn. The experience costs between 25 and 50 dollars depending on what visit you choose, and aims at teaching tourists about the vocal behavior of the meerkats, as well as about conservation of meerkets and other animals in the area. Do you want to go see the meerkats?
Beer Battered Fish
Continuing with food spiked with some alcohol, I never knew that you could batter your fries with beer!!! who would have known that adding beer it would make your fish crispier and take that batter to the next level of flavor? Ingredients: - 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour - 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder - 1 (12 ounce) (355ml) bottle of beer, any light colored beer - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) salt - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) freshly cracked black pepper - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) garlic powder - ½ teaspoon (4 grams) cayenne pepper - 1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour (this is for dredging) - 1½ pounds fresh cod fillets, cut into long strips (5 to 6 inches long) - canola oil for frying - lemon wedges, for drizzling at the end - malt vinegar, for drizzling at the end - fresh parsley, chopped for garnish Preparation: 1) In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and beer until a smooth thin batter forms. If the batter is too thick add a bit more beer (or water or club soda) to thin it out. If the batter is too thin add a bit more flour to thicken it. It should be thinner than a pancake batter but slightly thicker than a crepe batter. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes but 2 hours would be better. 2) Cut the cod fillets into (5 to 6 inch) strips. My rule of thumb is that 1 (8-ounce) fillet can feed about 2 people. Pat the fish with a paper towel to make sure it is completely dry. Season both sides with some of the salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Reserve half of the seasonings for later on. In a shallow dish, pour the 1 cup of all-purpose flour and the reserved salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper, whisk or stir to combine. That is your flour dredging. We do this so the beer batter can stick to the fish. 3) In a large pot, or dutch oven, heat oil to 375°. If you fill up the pot halfway with oil, that should be fine. Once the oil is hot, the fish is ready to be fried. Working with one strip at a time, dip the fish into the seasoned flour, coat evenly on both sides. Then dip the fish into the beer batter, completely dunking it until it is fully submerged. Drain excess batter and then carefully drop the battered fish into the oil. Don’t overcrowd the pot, work in batches. 4) Fry for 4 to 6 minutes on the first side. Flip it over and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the second side. Only flip the fish once. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Transfer to a cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining fish. To keep the fried fish warm and crispy until ready to eat, place the baking sheet in a 200°F oven. Serve warm with lemon wedges, malt vinegar and a sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley.

So Good Or No Good: Raw Fish, Anybody?
Welcome to this week's edition of the Funny Community weekly game - "SO GOOD OR NO GOOD"! At the beginning of every week, I post to ask your opinion on various things that a lot of people either strongly love or strongly hate, and then share the full community results! Last week I asked you how you felt about tartar sauce! Out of the 69 users who voted either way, tartar sauce was decided to be 'SO GOOD' by 44 voters. That means TARTAR SAUCE IS SO GOOD!!!!!!! (Shout-out to Team Salmon Burgers!) This week's game goes back to the subject of Japanese food. I've already asked you what your opinion on wasabi is (SO GOOD!), but now I want to know how you feel about raw fish. Do you dare order the spicy tuna roll or the salmon sashimi? Or do you stick to California rolls where it's safe? Is raw fish SO good or NO good? Raw fish is enjoyed in a number of countries - including Italy, Peru, Spain, and the Netherlands, but it's most famously served as Japan's sushi! And despite the fact that, you know, eating raw fish could result in acquiring parasites and/or mercury poisoning... It remains an extremely popular food all around the world! What do YOU think of foods like sashimi, ceviche, and carpaccio? Do you think raw seafood is SO GOOD or NO GOOD?

"Wildest Dreams" is not racist despite the claims!
"Wildest Dreams" is not "glamorizing white colonialism". When NPR called out Taylor Swift's new music video "Wildest Dreams" as being racist and glamorizing white colonialism, Swift's director fired back. Joseph Khan, the director of the film, had no issue with addressing the criticism. Swift was undoubtedly thrilled to introduce her new music which could be the most elaborate and shockingly gorgeous music videos to date. It takes place in 1950's Africa where a love affair takes place between Swift and hunky Scott Eastwood. The music video premiered at the 32nd annual MTV Video Music Awards pre-show on Sunday, Aug. 30. Swift even got to introduce the music video herself! However minutes after the video had ended on live television, fans from around the world took to social media (predominantly Twitter) to show their support or dismay of the video. On one side, fans were in awe of how gorgeous the video was proving her cinematic taste was flawless. The other side immediately criticized her for the lack of any African-American actors in the video that took place in Africa. Some believe it promoted colonialism which is a very dark aspect of African culture. However, the director still has claimed this was not the intent or reality. The Full Statement from Khan to NPR: “Wildest Dreams” is a song about a relationship that was doomed, and the music video concept was that they were having a love affair on location away from their normal lives. This is not a video about colonialism but a love story on the set of a period film crew in Africa,1950. There are black Africans in the video in a number of shots, but I rarely cut to crew faces outside of the director as the vast majority of screentime is Taylor and Scott. The video is based on classic Hollywood romances like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, as well as classic movies like The African Queen, Out of Africa and The English Patient, to name a few. The reality is not only were there people of color in the video, but the key creatives who worked on this video are people of color. I am Asian American, the producer Jil Hardin is an African American woman, and the editor Chancler Haynes is an African American man. We cast and edited this video. We collectively decided it would have been historicially inaccurate to load the crew with more black actors as the video would have been accused of rewriting history. This video is set in the past by a crew set in the present and we are all proud of our work. There is no political agenda in the video. Our only goal was to tell a tragic love story in classic Hollywood iconography. Furthermore, this video has been singled out, yet there have been many music videos depicting Africa. These videos have traditionally not been lessons in African history. Let’s not forget, Taylor has chosen to donate all of her proceeds from this video to the African Parks Foundation to preserve the endangered animals of the continent and support the economies of local African people. *Swift has yet to make a personal comment. You be the judge. This isn't the first mega superstar that Khan has worked with. His amazing list of stars is as followed : Britney Spears, Eminem, Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, and Maroon 5. Swift adds to his impressive resume and it will be no surprise who he makes a video for next (definitely another A-lister). So what do you think? Do you think the video had racist undertones?

How to Cancel or Change United Airlines Flight
United flight change policy United Change Flight Policy is simple: You can make changes to your ticketed flight anytime before the flight's scheduled departure. You don't incur the fee if you change your flight within 24 hours of booking, or if you book your ticket at least 7 days in advance and you're flying domestically. But if you don't meet those requirements, United will charge you a change fee, which is $200 for domestic flights. The fee is higher for international travel, so check the United website for more details on that. So as long as you follow those rules, you shouldn't have to pay an arm and a leg to reschedule your flight. Change to a different flight on the same day Premier members If you're a Premier member, you can make changes to your flight reservation within 24 hours of departure and have the same flexibility as a First Class passenger. You may be able to confirm a seat on another flight for no cost at all.* If your original ticketed fare class isn’t available on the new flight, you can always stand by for free. If you have questions about this benefit or wish to make changes, please call united or visit their official website.. All other travelers If you’re a customer or MileagePlus member without Premier status and your flight is cancelled, you may be able to confirm a seat on another flight within 24 hours of your originally scheduled departure time. A fare difference may apply even if the same original fare class is available. And don’t forget — you can always stand by for free! Basic Economy Tickets If you're traveling on a Basic Economy ticket, you may only confirm changes to your flight within 24 hours of your original departure time. Once the 24 hour window has passed, you will not be able to change your flight. Once your new flight has been booked, it's always a good idea to check in online and print out your boarding pass before going to the airport. If you arrive at the airport with an electronic boarding pass and printed confirmation email, you can skip the check-in line and head straight to security! How to Cancel or Change United Airlines flight Canceling or Changing a flight with United Airlines can be relatively easy, though the details depend on whether you booked directly through the airline or through a third party, like a travel agent. If you booked directly with United Airlines, the first step is to determine if your ticket is refundable. If it is, you can cancel it and receive a refund by calling 1-800-UNITED-1 (1-800-864-8331). Be sure to have your confirmation number handy when you call. If your ticket is not refundable, you may still be able to make changes for a fee. To do so, call United Customer Service and request any of the following: Change in date Change in time Change in destination Change in origin United Cancellation Policy We understand that circumstances may arise that result in you needing to change your travel plans, and we're here to help! As per United Cancellation Policy, you can cancel your flight within 24-hours of booking your ticket. Just call us at 1-800-UNITED-1 and we'll refund the full value of your ticket. If you cancel your flight less than 24-hours after you've booked it and more than seven days before the day of the flight, we'll refund the cost of your ticket minus a $200 cancellation fee. If you cancel seven days or less before your trip and at least one hour before the scheduled departure time, we'll refund the cost of your ticket minus a $400 cancellation fee. Unfortunately, if you cancel within one hour of the scheduled departure time or miss your flight for any reason, we cannot provide a refund. If you need to change your trip, please call the United Customer Service as soon as possible to avoid any schedule changes resulting in additional fees. Canceling or changing United tickets during a travel waiver If you booked a flight on United Airlines and need to change or cancel it due to weather-related travel disruptions, there are no fees for doing so. For flights canceled or changed by United, customers can rebook in the original class of service or travel on standby within 14 days of their original date of travel between the original city pair, subject to seat availability. Customers can also choose to apply the value of the ticket toward future travel, which must be completed within one year from the date when the ticket was issued. If you purchased a refundable fare, you can request a full refund without penalty. If you purchased a nonrefundable fare, any applicable difference in fare will apply. To change or cancel your reservation online, visit United Airlines Official Website. For all other tickets that were not booked directly with United (including those booked through an online travel agency), please contact your original point of sale for assistance with your reservations. If you're a United Airlines frequent flyer, you may have noticed a travel waiver for weather or other events that sometimes ends up causing flight changes, cancellations, and delays. These waivers can make it difficult to reschedule your flights as normal, but we've got the tips you need to get your itinerary back on track. When an airline issues a waiver, they're letting passengers know that they will not be charged a fee to change their flights because of the conditions outlined in the waiver. These are usually issued in weather-related cases when it's possible that airports will shut down or flights will be delayed or canceled. Waivers impact both award tickets and revenue tickets. It's important to remember that while you aren't being charged the standard change fee to alter your flight plans, airline employees are still working under heavy constraints and uncertain schedules. They may not be able to rebook you on another flight immediately even if it seems like there should be seats available. If this happens, just wait until the next day—the system may be updated once more information is available about how flights are running now that it's daylight and/or airports have reopened. Sometimes travelers won't be able to change their flights online at all during an airline waiver period, so try to connect with United Customer Service. Changing or canceling paid United tickets If you paid for your ticket but are not a MileagePlus Premier member, you may cancel or change your reservation within 24 hours after purchase. If it has been more than 24 hours since you purchased your ticket, you can still cancel your reservation, but the airline will either collect a cancellation fee or will issue you a credit toward a future United flight. This credit is valid for one year from the date of issue. If you are a MileagePlus Premier member, you can still cancel or change your reservation within 24 hours after purchase with no penalty. If it has been more than 24 hours since you purchased your ticket, then instead of collecting a cancellation fee, United will issue a credit for the full amount of the original ticket purchase toward another United flight for use within one year from the date of issue. For more information about how to make changes to your booking once it has been completed, please contact our United Customer Care Team. If you need to change or cancel a United ticket, you can do so with no penalty. You can change or cancel your ticket within 24 hours of purchase for a refund for any reason, or within one hour of departure if you have a flexible ticket. If you need to make changes after that time, visit the Manage Reservations page on united.com and enter your information. To cancel a ticket, select "Cancel" from the dropdown menu next to the flight number and date of travel. You will receive an email confirmation when your request is processed by our Customer Care team. If you're eligible for a refund, it will be processed in 7-10 days.

Refer to our policy on reinstating unused tickets and travel certificates for more information on this process and any applicable fees. Policies are subject to change. Changes or cancellations can be made on United.com. You're responsible for any difference in fare, and you may have to pay a service charge. If you're not able to cancel your reservation online, contact the United Customer Contact Center. Allow enough time before your flight if you need to make changes or cancellations. You can change or cancel your ticket: Within 24 hours of making a reservation without paying a service charge if we received your request at least 7 days before departure, and the reservation was made at least one week prior to travel; or Anytime without paying a service charge if we received your request at least 1 hour before departure and the reservation was made at least 1 hour prior to travel; or By contacting the United Customer Contact Center up to 4 hours after making your reservation or during the 24 hours following the purchase of a nonrefundable ticket, provided that the ticket was purchased at least 7 days prior to departure, and the scheduled time of departure for your first flight is at least 7 days from when you contacted us. Changing or canceling United tickets booked with credit card points If you book United tickets with your credit card points, you may have to pay a fee if you need to change or cancel the reservation. The charge for canceling your flight is $200, but if you used miles to pay for the flight, you can cancel it without paying the fee. You can call United and ask an agent to refund the miles used for your ticket back to your account. You will also be able to make changes to your reservation or request a full refund this way. However, you won't be able to make any changes to the number of award miles redeemed for a ticket. Once redeemed, these miles are nonrefundable. You can also cancel your reservation online by visiting united.com, logging in with your MileagePlus number and password, selecting My Trips from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the page, and following the prompts available on that page. The amount of the fee depends on how much time is left before departure and how far in advance you made the reservation. The fee can be as low as $50 or as high as $300. You can use your Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred cards to book flights on United — but there are some restrictions. You'll be charged a $75 fee for booking an award ticket through the Chase travel portal, which is waived for status holders and those with other premium credit cards. Changing or canceling United Airlines basic economy fares You have the option to change or cancel your United Airlines basic economy ticket. If you choose to change your flight, you can do so for a $200 fee. Alternatively, you can cancel and rebook your ticket at a later date for a $200 fee plus any price difference between the existing and new tickets. If changing flights is not an option, you may also choose to cancel your basic economy ticket and book a new one at any time without incurring the $200 fee. This option is only available for the original purchaser of the ticket, however, so transferrable tickets are excluded from this rule. Cancellations must be made within 24 hours of booking, but changes can be requested until 30 days before departure date. United Airlines standby policy United Airlines has a very strict standby policy. The airline will only allow you to check in as a standby passenger if there are available seats and your original flight is delayed. The airline does not accept standby bookings for flights that have been cancelled or overbooked. If you try to check in as a standby passenger on an overbooked flight, you'll be denied boarding and asked to rebook your trip on another flight. United also won't allow standby passengers to check in prior to their original departure time — even if they have an earlier connecting flight in their itinerary. In other words, if your original flight is delayed, it's best to wait until your new departure time before trying to check in again. How to get on the United Airlines standby list In order to get on the standby list for a United Airlines flight, you must be a traveler who has not yet purchased a ticket. If you have already booked a flight, you will need to cancel it and wait 24 hours before placing yourself on the standby list. I will show you how to get on the standby list for a United Airlines flight by following these steps: Call United or go to the United website and click "Contact Us" in the top right corner of the page. You can also visit your local airport's ticket desk for help. Tell the representative that you would like to be placed on standby for an upcoming flight. They will ask about your travel plans, including where and when you want to fly as well as whether or not you have checked luggage or carry-on items with which they can assist during boarding time. The representative will let you know if there are seats available on another flight. If not, they may suggest other options such as taking an earlier departure date or switching airlines altogether (for example, American Airlines). How do you change or cancel your United flight? If you need to change or cancel your United flight, you can do so online, by phone or at the airport. Before You Book Your Flight: If you have a nonrefundable ticket and wish to change or cancel your flight, you may be able to use that ticket on another flight. If not, there may be a fee for changing or canceling your ticket. Online: Log in to your MileagePlus account and select Manage Reservations from the My Trip section.
