New study says processed foods make us crave more calories

processed food

What is healthy when it comes to food? That’s a question that many people struggle to answer on a daily basis around the world. How much sugar, fat, carbs, and salt our bodies need has been the topic of debate for, well, pretty much forever, and constantly-shifting nutritional guidelines aren’t making things any easier to understand.

Calories are, of course, the biggest factor in how much weight a person loses or gains, but how we get those calories can vary dramatically from person to person. Now, a new study suggests that eating so-called “ultra-processed” foods may be fueling the obesity epidemic and contributing to overeating across the board.

Southern Culture Foods Founder and Chef Shares Her Recipe for Success with You

You’ve probably scrolled past editorial stylized dishes on your favorite food blog or on social media. But it’s not every day that you learn about the business behind culinary entrepreneurship. Yes, it’s an entire industry. And if you’re ready to learn how to take the heat in the kitchen, Chef Erica Barrett, founder and CEO of Southern Culture Foods, wants to help you learn the recipe for success as a food entrepreneur.

Since launching her company in 2012, Southern Culture Foods products are being sold in 4,000 stores nationwide. And we hear that her pancake mix, waffle mix, and rubs are popular by demand! So, if you’ve been sitting on a family recipe, want to learn more about the science of cooking, or become an entrepreneur and food personality like her—she has you covered.

Barrett took a moment from throwing down in the kitchen to talk about all things food and business. Take a look at her bite-size tips for food entrepreneurs.

BLACK ENTERPRISE: There are years of training that goes into becoming a chef, how can those interested in food entrepreneurship learn the basics without formal training?

Erica Barrett: Being an entrepreneur is about figuring things out. When you embark on a food journey, you embark on the road less traveled. Read articles, research everything, exhaust all resources, reach out to people that you admire. Make mistakes as experience is the best teacher.

How did you turn your career as a chef into a successful business, Southern Culture Foods?

I really didn’t do anything outside of step out on faith. God did the rest. My journey has been an everyday journey of learning, growing, networking, structuring my goals, and working tirelessly to make Southern Culture a household name.

What is the secret sauce to the business of culinary entrepreneurship?

The secret sauce is learning about the food industry every day, studying trends, and striving to be extremely different.

You wrote the cookbook, Shuga & Seoul, which seems like a natural move for a chef but what did you learn about culinary entrepreneurship through that process?   

Writing a book taught me about structure, being organized, and creating a culinary road map for others to follow.

How important is it for food entrepreneurs to position themselves as personalities and build their social media presence?

Social media is huge and can be life-changing. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, separating yourself comes from being totally different. We have an opportunity to change the world through food, so don’t take it lightly.

Have you been able to monetize your online presence? If so, what advice do you have for other food entrepreneurs?

Yes, I use FB ads; I also do influencer ads, videos, FB lives and email lists. Building a community online is important to success. My advice is to find your unique calling in food and trust your gut. Be bold in who you are as a chef an entrepreneur and success will follow.

As winter sets in, we start noticing the cold and feel the need to cook up some tasty hot meals to warm us up from the inside out. In the miserable depths of winter, not just any meal will suffice, however. Countries around the world have developed some unique hot dishes which are perfect winter warmers, no matter what part of the world you’re from.

Sweden’s Janssons frestelse

Sweden’s perfect winter meal is Janssons frestelse, also known as Jansson’s temptation. Made from potato, onion, sprats, bread crumbs, and cream, this dish forms a traditional Swedish casserole. As a typical Christmas dish in Sweden, Janssons frestelse is the perfect winter warmer. It has a creamy taste, and the different flavors and textures work well to complement each other.

Hungary’s goulash

Hungary has a winter food which is relatively well-known throughout the world these days. Goulash is a type of meat stew, usually using beef. It is seasoned and sprinkled with a variety of spices, namely paprika. It also comprises of peppers, onions, garlic, and a range of other foodstuffs. It can be made to resemble soup more than a thick stew, but is the ideal dinner to warm your bones this winter.

Italy’s gnocchi

Gnocchi is a dish prepared from dumplings, with sauce often added to it. They are made from flour, egg, potato, cheese, and other similar ingredients. They have a light, fluffy texture, and are usually served over pasta. It’s a filling and incredibly delectable food, as well as its warmth making it perfect for the cold season.

France’s beef bourguignon

Beef is slowly braised in red wine, garlic, onions, herbs, and carrot, over several hours before being combined with noodles or potatoes, to make an unrivaled warm winter meal, with a flavorsome and rich taste. The beef becomes tender and soft, so it resembles a stew soup hybrid. Though originally from France, beef bourguignon has gained popularity around the world and is now enjoyed internationally as a staple piece of winter cuisine.

China’s Lanzhou lamian

Lanzhou lamian is a Chinese noodle dish, where long noodles are twisted, stretched, and prepared fresh from dough, by hand. The noodles are then served in a hot beef broth, making it an incredibly warming food for winter. It’s sold in most restaurants in China, with it being one of their most favorite dishes. Although, we want Lanzhou lamian to be sold locally – it sounds delicious!

America’s s’mores mug brownie

Why look at extravagant and exotic cuisine, when we could enjoy a simple American dessert? S’mores mug brownies are made from marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate chips. It is microwaved into a soft gooey brownie, which tastes utterly divine and is sure to warm you up this winter.

Whether you want to try an exotic new meal or stick with what you know, there are plenty of warm winter foods to keep you cozy. You could snuggle up under a duvet with a mug brownie, or make you and some friends a full goulash, but either way, you’re sure to be left feeling warm and satisfied.
