When The Seattle Seahawks won the super bowl last Sunday, Fox News made a big deal about how it was the city’s first National Championship since the 1979 Super Sonics won the NBA finals. This didn’t sit well with members of the two-time (2003 and 2010) WNBA champs, The Seattle Storm.

Kimchi is Korea’s national dish and considered to be one of the world’s healthiest foods. Low in calories and with loads of vitamins and dietary fiber, Kimchi is an ideal food to kick off the New Year. One serving can provide 50% or more of the daily recommended amount of carotene and vitamin C as well as good helpings of vitamin A, B1, B2, iron and calcium.
