The healthiest and worst ice cream picks.

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! By Carolyn Malcoun, contributing food editor for EatingWell MagazineYay, ice cream season is here! Our house is within easy walking distance of not one, not two, but three ice cream stands. Although I can resist the siren call of ice cream pretty easily, I do like to indulge in an occasional scoop of creamy frozen goodness.But my husband could eat ice cream every day in the summer. To keep us away from the ice cream shop, I keep healthier frozen treats in the house so there’s less post-dinner pouting from Dan when his sweet tooth aches.When I visit the frozen-dessert aisle at the grocery store I want to make sure I’m choosing good-for-us options. With all the different varieties of ice cream available these days, it can be confusing.Here’s how the labels stack up nutritionally on choices from premium ice cream to frozen yogurt, so you can make an informed pick.The Worst Choice: Super-Premium Ice CreamEssentially iced cream—the primary ingredient is cream.200-250 calories, 8-10 grams sat. fat*GelatoTraditionally made as custard with whole milk and egg yolks, some gelatos today also contain a hefty dose of cream.170-220 calories, 2-7 g sat. fat*Premium Ice CreamIt’s lighter than super-premium because some of the cream is replaced with evaporated, condensed or powdered milk.130-150 calories, 4-5 g sat. fat*Dairy-FreeFor frozen desserts made from rice milk, soymilk, coconut milk and tofu, the calories and saturated fat vary with the base (coconut-milk varieties have the most sat. fat; soy-based ones often have the least).130-210 calories, 0-7 g sat. fat*Slow-ChurnedMore air is incorporated into “churned” ice cream when it’s made, which is why it has half the fat and one-third fewer calories than premium ice cream.100-110 calories, 2 g sat. fat*SorbetThough nonfat and lower-calorie, sorbet can deliver a lot of added sugars. Look for ones with fruit first in the ingredient list.120-140 calories, 0 g sat. fat**The Healthiest Choice: Frozen YogurtCalorie-wise, nonfat fro-yo is the best choice. To ensure you’re getting some probiotics with your dessert, look for the National Yogurt Association Live & Active Cultures seal, though fro-yo delivers about a tenth of what unfrozen yogurt offers.90-100 calories, 0 g sat. fat (nonfat)*120-180 calories, 1-1.5 g sat. fat (low-fat)**Calorie and saturated-fat values based on 1/2 cup vanilla.**Based on various fruit flavors.by The Editors of EatingWell Magazine Tweetcenter_img Food & DiningLifestyle The healthiest and worst ice cream picks. by: – June 21, 2011 33 Views no discussions Sharelast_img read more

VB : SU junior Homann steps into leadership role on young team

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on October 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Nick: nctoney@syr.edu | @nicktoneytweetscenter_img There was no sugarcoating the in-your-face spike South Florida’s Andrea Rodriguez Gomez blasted at Lindsay McCabe.Syracuse was barely leading late in the fourth set, and Rodriguez Lopez, the Bulls middle blocker, hardly jumped at the net before making McCabe pay for a late defensive slide. Behind the backdrop of loud USF cheers, McCabe wasn’t the only SU player cursing under her breath after the point.But as her team regrouped before the next serve, Laura Homann wasn’t swearing. She was laughing. It was alright, she told her teammates. She rolled her eyes and smiled before breaking the huddle.‘She keeps things in perspective,’ McCabe said. For a team whose roster features 50 percent first-year players, Homann, a junior, is a leader by age. Homann is also a setter, which means she’s a leader by position, too, SU assistant coach Kelly Morrisroe said. Experience or ability aside, Homann also leads Syracuse (11-6, 2-1 Big East) by easing pressure-packed situations. She talks her teammates through tough games, de-emphasizing opponents when they score and consoling teammates when they make mistakes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘She’s this team’s rock,’ middle blocker Samantha Hinz said. ‘Without her, we’d all be going crazy.’The team leaned on that type of leadership early in the season. Homann, named co-captain by head coach Jing Pu, maintained a smile on the SU side — even when the Orange trailed Youngstown State by two sets early in the season. Before the start of the third set, Homann turned her back to the net, told her teammates to get ready for a comeback and clapped her hands in preparation.SU won the next three sets and took the match in five.‘That’s something I do naturally,’ Homann said. ‘I’m loud.’Homann can lead quietly as well. The Orange lost those first two sets to Youngstown State by a total of four points due to hitting errors and a few service errors. During that time, Homann wasn’t joking with teammates when she told them to step up.‘We weren’t getting outplayed.’ Homann said. ‘We were just beating ourselves. I had to say something.’But in the third set, freshman Ying Shen entered the match for the first time and was given a simple pat on the back by a calm and collected Homann. It was exactly what the freshman needed in her first game, Morrisroe said.Shen ended the match with eight kills and a pair of service aces in the last three sets of a comeback victory.Morrisroe said Homann can easily relate to each of the team’s nine freshman, a valuable skill for SU.‘Laura’s been there before,’ Morrisroe said. ‘She played every game as a freshman, and she’s still playing as a junior. She won her playing time by playing the way she has.’Morrisroe, in her first year, wasn’t on the SU coaching staff to watch Homann’s ascent. What she sees now is the nearly finished product of two-plus years of hard work. Homann had 50 assists in a loss against Utah Valley. She hit the 50-assist mark twice two weekends ago against USF and Niagara.Senior defensive specialist Ashley Williams said Homann backs up what she says on the court with how she plays.‘She’s a very, very good setter,’ Williams said. ‘And she makes us play better.’The team needed better play last weekend to stop a two-game losing streak. With outside hitter Erin Little inserted into the lineup and a new libero — Noemie Lefebvre — behind her, Homann helped secure two victories against Big East opponents.Against St. John’s, Homann assisted kills by Little and Lefebvre to key a game-clinching 25-22 third set. Homann’s 37 assists the next day at Connecticut gave her 3,000 assists for her career, making her only the sixth SU player to do so. Both victories were 3-0 sweeps.Homann’s ability to lead vocally and by example has helped SU one year after losing three key seniors. As this team tries to make up for its disappointing end in 2010 — missing the Big East tournament — her leadership will play a big role for the Orange.‘Whenever things are quiet out there, she makes sure we hear her,’ Lefebvre said. ‘On the court, she’s vocal, and we need that.’nctoney@syr.edulast_img read more

Badger Herald Q&A with Benjamin Worgull of BadgerNation.com

first_imgOn Wednesday, hundreds of high school players across the country will sign commitments to play collegiate football at various schools as part of National Signing Day.With a new head coach and coaching staff at the helm, Wisconsin will close out its recruiting efforts for the 2015 season Wednesday as the newest batch of Badger football players will sign on the dotted line to come to Madison.With National Signing Day just a few days away, Eric Kohlbeck of the Badger Herald talked to Benjamin Worgull of BadgerNation.com to discuss all things Wisconsin recruiting. Worgull is the publisher of BadgerNation.com – a member of the Scout.com Network – and covers Wisconsin recruiting and athletics for the website.The Badger Herald: How would you say Wisconsin’s recruiting class for 2015, overall has made it through the coaching change?Benjamin Worgull: Well, it’s gone through some peaks and valleys, without question, just because of the different ways these coaches attack, as I’ll try to explain. Gary Andersen extended a lot of scholarship offers to a lot of prospects of the 2015 class. Probably about 250 or so kids he offered. And he extended to a lot of kids that maybe had questionable – who needed to do work in the classroom to be admitted.So now that Chryst is here, we’ve seen a couple of those kids decommit from the program and they’ve lost throughout the entire recruiting process, they’ve lost four kids because of academic related issues. The Thursday after the national championship game, I believe, is when you can start doing in-home visits; you can start going out and see prospects at their school. So he’s been very aggressive over these last several weeks. He’s added some kids to this recruiting class that probably will help add depth that Wisconsin has to add at quarterback, they added a nose tackle, they added an in-state athlete who’s going to play outside linebacker.So, Gary Andersen set a really good foundation for this class. He went to a lot of different areas of the country, attacking a lot of really high-character players, lot of guys who have a high ‘star ranking’ and Chryst has come in and really done a good job at hitting in-state kids hard. So, where both these coaches have done a really nice job is Gary Andersen has set the foundation and kind of built the walls and now Chryst is building the roof and trying to get everything else set up inside for National Signing Day, if that makes sense.BH: Would you say the number of players that have decomitted since Andersen left and Chryst has taken over, is that typical of what you would see when there’s a coaching change?BW: Yeah, and I think there’s more coming to be honest with you. We sit at 23 [commits] right now but I wouldn’t be surprised if they lost three more. Probably it’s a little bit more than normal just because Gary Andersen took fliers on some kids. So you had some kids who, like I said, that needed work to do in the classroom to get there, while maybe some other coaching staffs don’t have that type of problem with the academics or the previous coaching staff recruited guys who were academically set. So, there’s probably been a little bit more than usual, but that’s part of the reason why, because of the academics.When you lose the head coach and you lose most of the assistant coaches, you’re going to have some kids that realize this isn’t the program I committed to; I don’t know any of these new coaches and sometimes new coaches come in and they, maybe there’s one coach that likes you but the next coach doesn’t, so they want kind of their own guys. None of these kids are the, what I would call, the main players in this recruiting class. So, is it a little more than normal? Yes, but I don’t think Wisconsin will get hurt by this in the long run.BH: How important was it that Chryst kept defensive coordinator Dave Aranda on his staff, and if they would’ve lost him, would Wisconsin have lost even more recruits?BW: I would throw Thomas Brown in that mix as well. You keep both of those guys and it’s been huge. I’ll start with Dave Aranda. Aranda recruited the state of Florida really hard. You look at a guy like Nick Thomas, who’s enrolled early. Nick Thomas, with a big spring, with 15 spring practices, and a good summer and fall camp; he could, I’m not saying he could start at inside linebacker, but could certainly be in the rotation to play as a true freshman. I mean he’s a very, very talented kid and he was recruited solely by Dave Aranda. Jordan Griffin, same thing. He’s an inside linebacker from Seffner, Florida who is on the fence right now deciding between Wisconsin, South Florida and Vanderbilt. If Dave Aranda wasn’t here, I think Wisconsin would have no shot at Jordan Griffin. I think Griffin’s one of the best players in Florida. You look at his numbers, he put up a ton of tackles this past year, really solid athlete.And then Thomas Brown, in one year look what he’s done in terms of recruiting running backs. He got Jordan Stevenson. Bill Busch recruited Jordan Stevenson initially and after Busch left, Thomas Brown took over and really calmed the waters there. Bradrick Shaw from Hoover, Alabama, — the best high school in Alabama — Thomas Brown was the lead on that, and especially the 2016 kid, Antonio Williams from North Carolina, a four-star running back. He was the leading recruiter on him. So, I think retaining both those guys were key in keeping some key pieces to his class. If both those guys had left, or one had left, the numbers right now would look very different. They would be losing some of their top-end players.BH: You had mentioned earlier how Chryst is trying to make more of an emphasis on recruiting the state of Wisconsin. What top prospects from the state has he recruited and which ones has he flipped to commit to Wisconsin?BW: Well, he offered four kids. He offered Alec Ingold from Bay Port. He flipped him from Northern Illinois. He offered Vincent Hughes from Franklin a gray shirt offer. Vincent Hughes was committed to Northern Illinois, he’s still committed to Northern Illinois, and he declined that offer. He offered Jake Whalen from Wausau West — a gray shirt offer to play fullback and Whalen is visiting this weekend. He’s down to between Wisconsin and Iowa. And he bumped Zack Baun from Brown Deer up from a gray shirt offer to a full scholarship offer. He offered Robert Windsor of Fond du Lac a full offer but Windsor signed a commit to Penn State.Ingold is a very talented athlete. You look at his numbers; he had over 4,000 total yards last year, passing and rushing and 45 some touchdowns. He was named the state offensive player of the year, the Gatorade state player of the year and Wisconsin and Gary Andersen was going to let him go to Northern Illinois because he didn’t see him as a fit to what he wanted to do. Well, Chryst recruited him at Pittsburgh and knew how good of an athlete he was. I mean, Ingold is the typical guy that Wisconsin has done well with in-state for years. They have that passion for playing in-state, that kids from Texas, or Florida, or Virginia or wherever doesn’t have because Wisconsin is not their home-state school. So I think Ingold’s history as a wrestler, his football IQ being a quarterback, that’s going to help to translate to be a solid outside linebacker. Same with Zack Baun. Zack Baun was a tremendous quarterback for Brown Deer and he has the knowledge and the skill set, and he signed to be a good outside linebacker.So, Chryst is a guy who obviously values in-state kids. He won a state championship at Platteville, played at Wisconsin, coached at Wisconsin. He knows the high school scene around here. So I think going forward, you’re going to see Wisconsin not just recruit the top players in the state, but maybe that next tier of players.Update: Jake Whalen did visit Madison this weekend and has committed to Wisconsin. BH: Along with Wisconsin, have there been any new areas that Chryst and his staff will focus on recruiting? Are there new areas in the country, outside of Wisconsin, that Chryst and his staff will try to recruit?BW: I think it’s a little early to say, because they don’t have a wide receivers coach in yet. So, I think they’re still trying to find their recruiting areas. So far they haven’t gone out into any new areas. They’ve kind of spent this chunk of time finishing up the 2015 class.But I would be very surprised if Wisconsin wasn’t in Florida. Florida is a huge recruiting area and it always has been even since Bielema was here. They will be hunkered down in the Midwest. I would imagine they will go back into Ohio and western Pennsylvania. I think they will go to the west coast a little bit. It remains to be seen how successful they will be. They’ve been able to pull some kids out of that area that past couple of years. I think maybe they’ll have a better head start than they did when Bielema came and Bielema tried to recruit California and failed miserably. Daronte Jones, the new secondary coach, recruited the east coast for Hawaii and that’s a hard sales pitch to be able to go from the east coach all the way to Hawaii. That’s a 15-hour plane flight or whatever it would be. I think he’ll have more success now, recruiting that area for Wisconsin. But these are all areas that Wisconsin has already been in.I don’t see them doing a lot in Utah or the upper Pacific northwest, but I really think the Midwest, which was lacking under Andersen, will be the main focal point for Chryst and his staff.BH: Out of all the recruits that are expected to sign on National Signing Day, and the ones that have already enrolled early, who do you think has the best chance of seeing significant playing time right away next year as a freshman?BW: Probably Jordan Stevenson, the four-star running back out of South Oak Cliff in Dallas. And I say that because you look at the running back roster right now and there’s Corey Clement and there’s nobody else. I think one of those true freshman will play. I think Stevenson is a talented athlete. He’s such a mean runner. To put up those kinds of numbers in Texas high school football is just so impressive and he plays at a really good high school too that has a number of D-I prospects on it. He’s just a smooth, natural runner. He was committed to Texas for a long time and he took an official visit up here in late September for the USF game and just fell in love with the running back tradition that was here.Obviously one of the inside linebacker that I mentioned, Nick Thomas, I think has a great shot to play early. I would say a wide receiver but they only signed one wide receiver in this class. But I would also maybe keep my eye on Jon Dietzen from Seymour just because Wisconsin needs a right tackle and Dietzen can play either tackle spot. He’s enrolled early, so he’s going to get a full year with the program and if he has a big offseason, I could see him possibly getting an opportunity to play early. But other than that, I really don’t see anyone else making that big of an immediate impact. History suggests that probably between four and six true freshman will probably play this year.BH: This isn’t necessarily a recruiting question, but with quarterback Austin Kafentzis coming in, do you see him making a push to see playing time at quarterback and overall, who do you think is going to win the starting quarterback job?BW: I would be surprised if Kafentzis played this year, but having known him and having seen how determined he is and how intelligent he is, I wouldn’t count him out. He’s a very good athlete and without question is probably the highlight of this class. He’s been committed for so long. He committed back in June of 2013. So he’s a really good athlete. I don’t really know a lot about [Alex] Hornibrook. He’s a lefty and he strikes me more as a pocket passer. For him to be enrolled early is key.You look at that quarterback group and there’s going to be a lot of quarterbacks and not a lot of reps in spring so it’ll be interesting to see how they vary it up. I don’t think Tanner McEvoy will be quarterback under Paul Chryst and he shouldn’t. So I kind of think right now, Joel Stave is the leader in the clubhouse and I know that’s going to rattle some people but Joel Stave has a ton of experience. He’s won a lot of games for Wisconsin. He just won a bowl game — well Melvin Gordon won the bowl game — but, you know what I’m saying. Paul Chryst recruited Bart Houston and if anyone can get Bart Houston going on the right track it’s Paul Chryst. D.J. Gillins has taken steps forward. He’s dual-threat that Wisconsin, under Gary Andersen, was looking for and he’s made some nice strides. So I think just to see how these quarterbacks fare in the spring under Paul Chryst who, unlike Gary Andersen, Paul Chryst has an offensive background and really can impact these quarterbacks.last_img read more

Darnold changes football outlook

first_imgIt is amazing what a star quarterback and an aggressive, blitzing defense can do for a football team. There is no better evidence of this than USC’s win on Saturday night against the visiting Arizona State Sun Devils. While not perfect, the Trojans came out of the Coliseum with a victory against a quality opponent. That alone serves as a milestone in the Clay Helton era.There are still a litany of issues plaguing the program, primarily a woeful offensive line. However, great players have a knack for covering up problematic issues. That is exactly what redshirt freshman sensation Sam Darnold is doing as he leads the Trojans at quarterback.With the potential to join the pantheon of Trojan stalwart signal-callers like Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart, Darnold is clearly the latest prize from the Orange County area-prep pipeline for USC quarterbacks. His rifle arm has routinely made the exceptional look normal. Whether it was turning a failed trick play into a 40-yard gain with a flick of the wrist, off his back foot no less, or turning a broken draw run into a 15-yard pass gain, on Saturday, Darnold demonstrated he has “it” in spades. Whatever you want to call it: moxie, leadership or just that glimmer in his eye, Darnold is a revelation.He’s still a freshman, so he isn’t perfect by any means. His pocket presence and decision-making will continue to improve, which is a truly tantalizing thought for Trojan fans. Comparing him to Palmer and Leinart, both Heisman winners, is admittedly a bit premature, but similar accolades may be in Darnold’s future, barring catastrophic injury. It’s now obvious why heralded quarterback recruit Ricky Town didn’t even last through summer camp last year — no one was beating Darnold for the job.The thing Darnold brings to the table that other Trojan quarterbacks haven’t is mobility. It isn’t that he needs to break long runs. The threat of the quarterback run is enough to keep defenses honest. USC should know as they have been burned by mobile quarterbacks for as long as I have been watching them. One of my first unfortunate memories of USC football was Kansas State quarterback Ell Roberson carving the Trojan defense up and ripping it to shreds. It is nice to finally have a quarterback who is giving opposing teams a taste of the medicine USC has had to swallow for years and years.The run pass option that has vexed USC defenses is now flummoxing opposing teams. USC still needs to work on the run aspect, as the Trojans’ worst play on offense is the repeated shotgun handoff to be stuffed a nanosecond later. However, the threat of the pass should continue to soften defenses up as the season progresses.The dimension of mobility combined with his cannon of an arm and ability to stand strong in collapsed pockets evokes comparisons to NFL all-pros Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck. Again, only two games into the Darnold era; these comparisons are somewhat hyperbolic, but the young quarterback has routinely made the improbable seem natural. Only the best do that.Darnold didn’t win this game on his own. The defense and their coordinator, Clancy Pendergast, deserve kudos for pressuring the quarterback and stifling a dangerous Sun Devil attack. Junior linebacker Uchenna Nwosu has stepped up for the Trojans and looks to have a career playing on Sundays very soon. Defensive backs senior Leon McQuay III and junior Jonathan Lockett also turned in impressive performances.One area where the Trojans can make further strides is potentially moving sophomore Iman Marshall from cornerback to safety. His physicality and size leave him better suited for that position than in coverage where he seems to gets beat or commit pass interference each game. Marshall is too talented of an athlete to limit his immense potential being forced into the cornerback position.On offense, Darnold was helped tremendously by junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and senior tailback Justin Davis. Davis, who had his original breakout game against Arizona State three years ago, finally looks to have regained his fluidity and graceful running style that makes him so dangerous and effective. He should be the Trojans’ workhorse moving forward. Smith-Schuster is back to dominating opposing defensive backs and making great plays after the catch.The Trojans showed up on Saturday, and Helton deserves credit for rallying his troops and having his team come out with fire and intensity. I liked his decision to go for it on fourth down early in the game. The play call was lacking to say the least, but the aggressive decision set the tone for the game.With Darnold at quarterback, a wide array of deficiencies are covered in gameplay and scheme. Hopefully his talent can continue to carry the Trojans as Helton grows and develops. Saturday exemplified the best case scenario for the Trojans for the rest of the season and the emergence of the next star signal caller for the USC football team.Jake Davidson is a senior majoring in accounting.

Maddon said the Angels considered having him play on Monday, but decided to take the cautious route and wait at least one more day.“I think he will be (ready Tuesday),” Maddon said after Monday’s game. “I talked to him before the game. Bright-eyed. Ready to rock and roll. It was a close call for today but we thought it was prudent to wait one more day. So (barring) any unforeseen circumstances that I’m not aware of, he should be able to play tomorrow.” Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter last_img read more

Aaron Rodgers-Jordan Love QB controversy in Green Bay? Ex-Packers exec urges fans to ‘relax’

first_imgFormer Green Bay Packers executive Andrew Brandt urged fans to “relax” over the surprising draft selection of Aaron Rodgers’ heir apparent in Jordan Love.The most stunning move of Thursday’s first round saw the Packers trade up to land Utah State quarterback Love, a physically gifted but raw prospect who has drawn comparisons with Patrick Mahomes. The selection was reminiscent of Green Bay picking a sliding Rodgers in 2005 when they had future Hall of Famer Brett Favre entrenched as the starter, a position he would hold onto for the next three years.Favre initially bristled at the idea of being a mentor to Rodgers, and there is a fear the current incumbent could react to Love’s selection with similar frostiness, particularly as the Packers passed on getting him help at receiver in the first round.However, Brandt – who was with the Packers when the team drafted Rodgers – understands why his old franchise opted for Love.”It’s deja vu -15 years ago I was there and we had the exact same situation,” he told Stats Perform.”We had a quarterback [Favre], who was 35 years old, in his prime, Hall of Fame quarterback, franchise player and yet we took a quarterback [Rodgers] and here they are again.Utah State Green Bay@jordan3love | #GoPackGo pic.twitter.com/qo4jjOErSW— Green Bay Packers (@packers) April 24, 2020″The difference is of course that back in 2005, the numbers came to us and we were sitting there and Aaron Rodgers fell to us. This time, the Packers traded up a few spots to go get this player Jordan Love and, pardon the pun, they loved him.”The selection of Love has caused quite a stir, yet Brandt referred to one of Rodgers’ own famous phrases in response to that furore.He added: “This is something where people are going, ‘What the heck? And Rodgers? Don’t they want to win now?’””I guess what I’m trying to tell people is relax. Number one. “Number two, they will get help for Rodgers. And number three, they have to secure the future.”The Packers obviously felt that this was a player that was their top quarterback prospect and they could not get him later in the draft, there’s no way. “So they went and did it and, yes, it does not help them this year, it may not help them next year, it may not help them for quite a while. But I feel like, if they feel like this is the guy, why not get him and let him learn from Aaron?”Now, in Aaron’s case he’s sat in the bullpen for three years, that seems like an extraordinarily long time and I don’t know if that will happen.”Jordan Love won’t be the quarterback this year, but after that you just don’t know. Football moves so much faster than it did 15 years ago.”last_img read more
