Worth the Drive

As Omahans, we are pretty lucky to live in an area that has an ample amount of great dining options. From The Surfside Club to Lot 2, Omaha has a variety of restaurants to suit any budget or desire. But what happens when we head out on summer vacation? Where do we eat? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone who could do some food research for you before you left?  

How often do you check Urbanspoon or Yelp for dining spots when you are travelling to Colorado with the kids? Or when you are driving to Kansas City for a Royals game? Or how about someplace worth driving to where you can explore the area and have a good meal? If you are like me - someone who appreciates good food at...

Help FarmTable Delivery

Star Deli

First things first: Star Deli in Benson is not the same Star Deli that was in the Jewish Community Center in Omaha. I figured this out quickly when I first walked into Benson’s Star Deli and didn’t see matzo ball soup on the menu. I guess I was confused because for whatever reason I was under the impression that this was the same place. I asked the guy at the counter and he responded with a quick, “No, ma’am,” which was in a tone that indicated he’d responded to this question before.

I had walked in expecting to indulge in the same types of food I devour when I visit my Jewish family in Los Angeles, but had to switch gears and instead check out what the Star Deli menu had to offer. It’s...

You Are What You Eat

I try to be a mindful eater. Considering that we are what we put into our body, I want to be sure I’m made of healthy, pretty things. So I recently took an inventory of the foods I regularly eat, and here is what I found; if I am indeed what I eat, then I am made of approximately 30% fruits and vegetables, 20% animal, 15% eggs and dairy, and 35% a combination of additives that years of winning spelling bees won’t help me to sound out, chemicals that even scientists have to use initials or nicknames for, and seven synonyms for sugar.

Ouch.

What the heck are you eating?

Let’s talk about a common food additive, but instead of saying “Butylated Hydroxytoluene,” let’s say “jet fuel.” It’s...
