Dec 18 2014 01:35pmUSDA Guide to Calorie Counting
Counting calories is a daily chore that all dieters must face, and it may sometimes seem like it is taking over your life (or at least your meals). These helpful tips from the USDA can help you to manage your meals, keep your calories under control, and do it all while still enjoying the food you eat. Here are some of the tips: Even if you carefully count calories, it's easy to exceed your empty calorie allowance. Empty calories are calories that come from added sugars and solid fats, and they have no health benefits. When choosing proteins, choose only lean versions of beef or pork. A three-ounce portion of regular ground beef contains 64 empty calories, while a three-ounce portion of extra lean ground beef contains zero empty calories. Breads and pastries with added sugar or butter contain significantly more empty calories than those without. A regular piece of white bread contains zero empty calories and approximately 69 calories, but a glazed donut contains 170 empty calories out of its total 255 calories. Check the calories on the label before you consume any food, and make sure to eat only the recommended serving size listed on the label.Find more calorie counting tips on the USDA website.CC-BY-SA-2.0/Flickr/sajia.hall

Dec 11 2014 01:35pmFaulk Central Library: Check Out This Historic Downtown Library
Since 1926, the Austin Public Library has provided Austin residents with access to classic works of literature and more modern literary offerings. The current building, which was constructed in 1979, was renamed the Faulk Central Library, but it still aims to provide locals with the same reading resources entirely free of charge. The building is a large, square structure with three floors and a parking garage, and it serves as the reference and collection epicenter of the entire Austin Public Library System.In addition to its many books, this library also offers a very impressive selection of DVDs and CDs. Educational programs for adult and children are frequently offered at the Faulk Central Library, including computer classes, Spanish lessons, and an all-ages story time.The Faulk Central Library is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.Faulk Central Library800 Guadalupe StreetAustin, TX 78701(512) 974-7400www.library.austintexas.gov/locations/Faulk%20Central%20Librarywww.yelp.com/biz/faulk-central-library-austin-public-library-austinCC-BY-2.0/Flickr/Alexandre
