HEY GUESS WHAT! Meal delivery subscriptions are everywhere right now. You already know this, unless you've been living under a rock with no wifi. In which case: Is Jon Stewart with you and can we join?

These services are popular because they're convenient, healthful, and help you get comfortable in the kitchen. But just because they're everywhere doesn't mean they're all created equally.

Home Chef has the largest variety of meals by a long shot. Gluten-free, vegetarian, low-cal, low-carb, meals for two, meals for six – it doesn't matter. They've got a delicious set of options for you. And if you sign up now, they'll take $30 off your first box.

Answer a few questions about your eating habits (or what you wish your eating habits were), and select from Home Chef's 13 weekly recipes or have their team do the deciding for you.

Pick what sounds good, get a big box of fresh, perfectly-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions delivered to your doorstep, and then bam! You've got a home-cooked meal in half an hour. That's quicker than your 10pm Thai order takes to get delivered.

Your food, fresh from your kitchen, made just the way you like it. Use the promo code NEWDIGG30 to get $30 off your first Home Chef box.

What You Should Know About Open Agriculture Initiative

It's part of the MIT Media Lab and has a goal to create more farmers and code the future of food production.

Caleb Harper and his colleagues have developed the Food Computer, an open source hardware and software platform for controlled-environment agriculture that uses robotic systems to control for variables like climate, energy and nutrients inside the chamber, realizing Harper's vision of creating a climate that suits local needs, according to Motherboard

This food computer is basically a high tech greenhouse with computerized climate control systems, such as grow lights and humidifiers, and sensors to monitor oxygen levels, temperature and other climate variables. They don't grow plants in soil, but in a hydroponic or aeroponic system.

Beans, They Are Good for Your Heart!

This month in honor of American Heart Month, we're calling out the top foods for your heart!
The song we're all so familiar with as kids might very well be true, as eating beans regularly is good for your heart. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition suggests having just ½ cup of cooked beans daily might help lower cholesterol. Researchers point to the rich soluble fiber content of beans, which forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract and combines with excess cholesterol to ferry it out of the body.

Phil's Food Reviews
 

Truvia Nectar Stevia Blend with Honey is a HIT!

For those Stevia lovers out there this is a new twist. A blend of honey, sugar, water and stevia. It tastes and has an aroma more like a high quality pancake syrup. Use about half as much as you would sugar or honey and the sweetness is certainly there. Watch full review.
