After closing down more than 40 locations in the last year, IHOP has announced they will continue on their expansion trajectory. And among the new locations, customers will find a novel IHOP restaurant concept—a fast-casual eatery called Flip'd by IHOP.According to Restaurant Business, plans for Flip'd were first unveiled at the end of 2019, when parent company Dine Brands planned on rolling out the new concept in urban areas. However, due to the pandemic, the opening of its first location in Atlanta, which was scheduled for April 2020, was postponed. But now that plans for the fast-casual are resuming, here's what you can expect from a Flip'd location. (Related: McDonald’s Is Making These 8 Major Upgrades.)It will be much smaller than IHOP and mostly geared to off-premise eating. While you'll find many of your IHOP favorites on the menu, some of them will be tweaked for on-the-go eating. For example, pancakes will come in takeout bowls which can be customized with toppings at the Build Your Own Pancake Bar. Bowls of oatmeal will work the same way.Another strong emphasis at Flip'd will be on morning drinks. "We will have freshly brewed beverages, we will have freshly squeezed orange juice, we will have nitro-brewed coffee,” IHOP's President Jay Johns said in 2019.Besides breakfast, Flip'd locations will also offer lunch and dinner menus, with brand new options like burritos and ready-to-eat salads.Details around the timeline and locations of the first few Flip'd restaurants remain under wraps.

Feeling under the weather after getting the COVID-19 vaccine? When we're not feeling 100%, it's common to turn to the foods that always comfort us and make us feel better—like a mug of steaming tea or a bowl of chicken soup. If this is something you're craving, take this as your sign to reach for those things. Why? Because chicken soup is the best food to eat after getting the vaccine.Here's why chicken soup truly is for the soul, and for even more healthy eating tips, be sure to check out our list of The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.Your body will be in a state of inflammation post-vaccine.According to the CDC, you may experience some adverse side effects of taking the COVID-19 vaccine. While this doesn't happen for everyone, some vaccine patients have mentioned experiencing side effects for a few hours after taking the vaccine, including fevers, chills, tiredness, and a headache.In a Q&A with Cleveland Clinic, Thaddeus Stappenbeck, MD, PhD, says that these side effects are coming from inflammation that is happening within your body. Your body is reacting to the spike protein and is working to fight off the simulated infection. Sore arms, fevers, muscle aches are all common when your immune system is fighting something.This is why eating immune-boosting foods is important for your recovery, particularly foods with a high-water content. The CDC also states that drinking plenty of fluids is important for recovery after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. This means any anti-inflammatory foods that can also hydrate your body will help immensely with your recovery—especially these 8 Best Foods To Eat Before and After Getting the COVID Vaccine.Soup is a great anti-inflammatory food to turn to.In particular, broth-based soup—like chicken noodle, minestrone, or a simple bone broth—is a great food to slurp on if you're feeling under the weather. Plus, if your soup is full of good immune-boosting foods (like kale, beans, lentils, potato, broccoli) you're giving your immune system even more of a boost with that meal.This brings us back to the trusty ol' chicken soup. If you have to pick any soup to have after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, chicken soup would be your best bet. According to CHEST Journal, chicken soup actually does have "beneficial medicinal activity" when consumed and has a "mild anti-inflammatory effect" on the body. While it's unclear which particular element of the soup is helpful, The UCLA Center for East-West Medicine says that including all of those classic elements (chicken, onions, carrots, celery, parsley, salt, and pepper) have been proven to help fight inflammatory infection.If you don't necessarily feel like eating anything, sipping on a cup of bone broth can also be a great substitute. According to Healthline, bone broth contains an amino acid called glycine and arginine, which have strong anti-inflammatory effects.So whether it be a steaming cup of bone broth or a hearty bowl of chicken noodle soup, be sure to treat yourself to this best food to eat after getting the vaccine. Especially if you're making our Cozy Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe.
The duchess has denied what she called an "attack on her character."
Important question! Do you start your morning with a mug full of piping hot coffee or green tea? Both have been shown to provide a wealth of potential health benefits to the body, in addition to giving you that necessary boost of energy in the morning. However, there's one major side effect of drinking green tea (and a very good one at that) we think anyone and everyone could benefit from knowing.So, ready for "the tea?" Drinking green tea regularly may reduce your risk of developing heart disease. (Related: The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now).Several studies from the past decade have shown that green tea may be able to shield the heart from disease. It reduces or levels your LDL "bad" cholesterol, the harmful type of cholesterol for your body. When LDL builds up in form of fatty deposits or plaque within the walls of your arteries—aka the all-important blood vessels that deliver blood from the heart to the tissues all over the body—it can harden and cause the vessels to thicken.The thickening of the artery's wall is a key sign of atherosclerosis, which is a form of heart disease. Then, if the artery becomes clogged from this plaque buildup, this can lead to a heart attack or even stroke. One 2013 study found that the higher green tea consumption was among participants, the lower their risk of stroke was.However, in order to reap the heart-healthy benefits from green tea, you may need to drink a lot of it—especially if you already have atherosclerosis or have experienced a stroke or heart attack. A recent study published in the journal Stroke found that drinking at least seven cups of green tea a day lowered stroke survivors' risk of death from any cause by a whopping 62%.So why not brew yourself a steaming cup of green tea today?More Green Tea Stories on Eat This, Not That!7 Amazing Benefits of Drinking Green TeaDrinking Green Tea May Prevent This Leading Cause of Death6 Ways Drinking Green Tea Can Add Years to Your Life, According to ScienceWhat Happens To Your Body When You Drink Green TeaWe Tasted 10 Green Tea Brands, and This Is the Best One!
Doom and gloom! The COVID-19, despite the vaccine rollout and optimistic predictions, is going to last into 2022, so we'd better get used to looking after one another. As a doctor, I'm practicing mitigation measures, as As a doctor, I'm practicing mitigation measures, as I hope you are—although bear in mind that my husband is being shielded as he has lymphoma, so I have to be extra careful. My decisions may be different from yours, but in principle, we all want to stay safe and not take any more risks than we need. So here are five places that I, as a doctor, wouldn’t go to right now. Read on, and to keep yourself and others safe during this pandemic, don't miss this essential list of the Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 I Would Not Travel on Holiday Tempting as it may seem, taking a holiday overseas right now is fraught with potential problems. With great sadness, we canceled all the holidays we had planned for the entire year, right back in March at the start of the lockdown of the UK, where I live. We have not been tempted to reinstate them. Here are some of my reasons.First and foremost, there is no doubt your risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 is lowest if you stay at home.The CDC is advising that those at higher risk from the virus, including all older people and those with chronic medical conditions, avoid non-essential air travel. At present, the UK advises against all but essential travel to the USA, and the USA advises against all but non-essential travel to the UK! So, I guess you and I will not be seeing each other soon. 2 I Would Not Go to a Bar or a Nightclub One of the riskiest things you can do right now is to visit a bar or a nightclub. Many venues have indeed tried hard to put measures in place to keep customers safe, which is to be applauded. But they vary enormously in how well they enforce these measures. For example, a recent outbreak of COVID-19 cases, involving 140 people from 12 different counties, was traced back to visiting one particular bar in Michigan. In Korea, one 29-year-old asymptomatic man visited five night clubs, and unknowingly infected 246 people.Going to a bar is the complete reverse of social distancing! It means going indoors, for what is likely to be a relatively long period of time and being surrounded by many people who are not from your household. 3 I Would Not Go to a Gym It’s a complete paradox—we all need to get fit, do more physical exercise and lose weight, but the worst places to visit right now, are gyms and indoor sports centers. In the US, some of these began reopening in July, with strict social distancing and hygiene measures in place; however, it remains to be seen just how risky a visit will still be. When you go to a gym, you share all the equipment with other gym members. You might think the gym machines lend themselves to social distancing, as they each occupy their own space. The problem is, as soon as you start to use them, the physical exertion means breathing deeply and rapidly. The warm, moist environment is also well suited to viral transmission. 4 I Can’t Go to a Ballroom Night I love Ballroom and Latin dancing, but I have not danced a step since lockdown. Dancing is a high-risk past-time for becoming infected with the virus. On August 8th, a letter was published in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, reporting a cluster of cases of COVID-19 linked to a dance school in South Korea. 5 I Can’t Go and See the Doctor—Unless it's Essential Just like everyone else, I can’t easily get to see or speak to a doctor right now. I might like to, but the restrictions in place affect me the same as they do you. The medical profession has done what it can. When you arrive at a clinic or a hospital, anyone high-risk for COVID-19 is segregated on arrival. So, if you attend with a non-COVID related problem, you should be seen in a "clean area," or better still at a "clean site." Medical staff seeing COVID-19 patients are kept away from patients who are not thought to be infected.If I had a medical emergency, I would not hesitate to phone for an ambulance.RELATED: If You Feel This, You May Have Already Had COVID, Says Dr. Fauci 6 Final Thoughts From the Doctor I think the pandemic has created stresses which are impossible to quantify or express, but, there have been good things too, such as teaching us kindness, slowing the pace of life, a sharpened focus on nature, being happy with the simple things in life, and being able to focus on those we love.
