Living by bread alone? California Style Complete Protein Bread, by the cooperatively-owned Alvarado St. Bakery in Petaluma, combines sprouted grains and legumes, making it a complete, vegetarian protein source. As a slow (vs. low) carb, the bread is a good bet for diabetics. Bourbon in Derby silks You know it's racing season when Woodford Reserve bourbon releases its annual limited-edition bottles with art labels in honor of the Kentucky Derby. For this year's 135th running, Woodford commissioned retired jockey-turned-artist, Tom Chapman, to design the colorful, rider's eye-view label.

Here are some tips: A fully packed, free-standing freezer that has remained closed will stay at acceptably cold temperatures for two to four days.

Signature satay Hardena Waroeng Surabaya is open, though it may look from the curb as though nothing's cooking inside this tiny corner storefront at Hicks and Moore. Crack open the door to Ena Wijojo's modest luncheonette, though, and the exotic smells of Indonesia drift out on a breeze warmed with coconut, hot sambal chili, and tangy dark soy. The aromas alone are enough to dull the squawk of Jerry Springer on the inevitable dining room TV - but the flavors will carry you away at bargain prices.

There's no harm in eating soy for breast cancer survivors Breast cancer survivors can have their fill of soy foods without worry, concludes a study presented this month at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Chemicals in soybeans called isoflavones have estrogen-like properties and block the action of the actual hormone in the breast. Scientists first thought high soy consumption might lower breast cancer risk (it doesn't). Then they wondered if isoflavones might increase risk by stimulating breast cells, mimicking estrogen.

When I heard on the radio the other day that Americans spend a thousand dollars per capita on defense, I realized that I'd like my thousand to go to the Army band. I've always been fond of the Army band. Actually, I think I contributed a little more than a thousand to the Defense Department last year, but I wouldn't want to make an issue out of that. Who's counting? Also, if there is extra money, I don't care how they spend it. They can buy bombs if they want to. Or they can buy some of those $800 ashtrays and $600 wing-nuts we used to read so much about.

Unity is gone - how can you make one meal to satisfy all these requirements? Now imagine you're trying to satisfy not a handful but 300 people.
