The Daily Meal

It's a place where baseball fans and their maybe less-than-interested friends can catch a game — and everyone can enjoy some great food. Many of the foods are local to New York City, and include vegetarian and gluten-free friendly options.

Red wine and chocolate for better health? Maybe not
Today
Does the idea that drinking red wine and eating chocolate can promote better health and help you live longer sound too good to be true? According to a new report, it just might be. Some studies in laboratory animals and cells have suggested that consumption of resveratrol — part of the family of polyphenol antioxidants found in foods like grapes, chocolate, wine, and apples — can promote longevity and reduce health risks like cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Chocolate chip salad dressing?
USA Today
Chocolate chips have found their way into lots of weird things, but this may rank as the ickiest-sounding: salad dressing. It gets even wackier. Like mac 'n cheese-flavor salad dressing. And PB&J. And, yes, being worked on are versions of root beer float and pancakes with syrup salad dressings.

Gluten-free lifestyle: Is it here to stay?
By Katy Bynum
One buzzword that keeps popping up in grocery stores, restaurants and even churches is gluten-free. Gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, barley and rye, is difficult for some people's bodies to process, resulting in celiac disease, which damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, about 83 percent of Americans who have celiac disease are misdiagnosed or still not diagnosed. A gluten-free diet is essential for those with celiac disease, and May is Celiac Awareness Month.
