Pizza Made Your Way at Twin’s Pizza in North Providence

April 23, 2014 12:04 pm

Pizza is one of the best forms of comfort food in the world, as there’s nothing that satisfies quite so much as a hot, cheesy slice. North Providence locals rave about the high-quality, affordable pies at Twin’s Pizza on Mineral Spring Avenue.

For over fifty years, this pizzeria has been owned and operated by the same family, so you know that they’re committed to serving up only the very best. Everything is made fresh on the premises every day, from the tangy dough to the remarkably tasty sauce. A wide array of toppings is offered, from traditional meats like pepperoni and sausage to linguica (smoke-cured pork sausage) and grilled chicken.

The sizable pies can be baked to your specifications. Locals recommend ordering your pizza well-done so that the crust chars a little bit on the bottom.

Learn More About Vegetables From These Facts

April 16, 2014 12:02 pm

You know that vegetables are important for your health and well being, but there are a number of facts that many people don’t know about getting your daily greens. These helpful facts from the USDA will give you some insight into the world of vegetables.

Vegetables are organized into five subgroups.
Based on their nutritional content, vegetables are categorized as either dark green vegetables, starchy vegetables, red and orange vegetables, beans and peas, and other vegetables.

You can get your daily veggies from a variety of sources.
Fresh vegetables are the most obvious choice, but cooked, frozen, canned, dried/dehydrated, and 100% vegetable juices are also valid sources.

Eating the proper amount of vegetables can prevent certain diseases.
Getting enough vegetables can help to prevent heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and may decrease kidney stones and bone loss.

Half of your plate should be made up of veggies.
While the exact recommended daily intake varies from person to person, filling half of your plate with vegetables is a good general rule.

Vegetables that are easy to prepare will help you eat them more often.
Things like microwavable frozen veggies or bags of pre-made salad greens are good examples.
