Blogger dies live after eating poisonous insects per game – Italian Cuisine

Eat poisonous insects for a crazy game: Chinese blogger loses his life in live streaming

Deadly challenge on social media: a Chinese blogger named Sun, 35, had launched a crazy game on his channel Douyu, a kind of YouTube authorized by the Chinese government. The test of courage consisted in turning a wheel, choosing lots of different types insects and eat them. All in live streaming, a widespread practice in China, where many vloggers have become millionaires thanks to such often dangerous challenges.

It was the July 18 broadcast that cost Sun life: after turning the wheel, Sun ate geckos alive, earthworms and finally a centipedewhile drinking in the meantime vinegar, beer is baijiu, a typical Chinese liqueur. Shortly after, the young blogger fell to the ground. Streaming is gone live for several hours, framing an empty chair, until the lifeless body was found by his girlfriend, unaware of the absurd game.

The video, available online for a few days, was finally eliminated following police investigations. The cause of death is not yet certain, but it seems that it was the centipede that it was poisonous.

Loaded Baked Sweet Potato

Baked sweet potato loaded with zesty black beans, melted cheese, salsa with a dollop of cream. What can be better than a 20 minute meal!

Today’s recipe is a guest post from The Picky Eater[1]. I met Anjali in San Francisco last year; she’s a sweet blogger who I instantly connected with, she is also a vegetarian and shared this delicious (yes, I tested this myself and loved it!) recipe with us, perfect for meatless Monday!

Hi Everyone! My name is Anjali Shah and I blog over at The Picky Eater[2], where I write about healthy recipes and easy-to-make family meals. I test all of my recipes on my “fast food loving husband,” who, prior to meeting me, ate a diet of frozen pizzas and Taco Bell, so any recipe that makes it on to my blog is “husband approved”!

I’m so excited to be a guest blogger today on Gina’s site! Ever since I met her at the Foodbuzz Conference last year and saw the amazing photographs and wonderful recipes on her blog, I’ve been a fan – and I’m so honored to be a part of this blog and meet all of you.

One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to makeover comfort foods into healthy versions that taste amazing, are full of flavor and feel just like the original.

Today I’d like to share one of my favorite recipes – my Loaded Baked Potato Makeover. My healthy swaps include: sweet potatoes instead of russet, “loaded” toppings like black beans and veggies sautéed with spices, and a dollop of cream (which is my favorite swap – 0% Greek Yogurt for sour cream!) The husband usually can’t tell the difference, especially when I spice up the yogurt with some taco seasoning.

This meal is delicious and takes only 20 minutes to make, which is why I love making it after a long day at work – I know I’ll have something yummy in my stomach in the same amount of time it would take to pick up takeout. The husband loved it too, and it has since become a staple weeknight meal in our house. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes

  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp olive or canola oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced

Poke holes in the potato with a fork, cook on your microwave’s potato setting until potatoes are soft and cooked through (about 8-10 minutes on high for 4 potatoes).

Combine yogurt and taco seasoning in a small bowl, mix well.

Heat oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add peppers, onions, chili powder, paprika, cumin and salt; cook until the onions have caramelized slightly, about 5 minutes. Add black beans, stir to combine and heat through (about another 5 minutes).

Slice the potato lengthwise down the middle or as I did in the photo, use a fork to pierce the top in an oval shape, then remove the top of each potato. Top with 2 tbsp shredded cheese, 1/3 cup of black bean mixture, 2 tbsp Greek yogurt mixture and 2 tbsp salsa of salsa. Enjoy!
