Daydream Nation

By Bob on May 26, 2011 5:28 AM | Read More

Daydream Nation is a movie that will haunt you. It's a coming of age tale that avoids the sunny clichés usually associated with the genre by substituting a slightly dark, ironic story worthy of David Lynch.

"Avatar"

By Cole on January 6, 2010 1:42 PM | Read More

With its $237 million budget, and 12 years of production, the story behind James Cameron's "Avatar" easily eclipses the film's plot. But for a film that's far more interested in drowning the audience in drool-worthy special effects and epic 45-minute battle scenes than anything else, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.

Tips:

If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
