Our friends at Foobooz hit up Lincoln Financial Field this week to check out the new concessions on tap for the 2014 Eagles season. They were kind enough to scope out a few of the veggie- and allergen-friendly items on the stadium’s menu this season, too—and they sent back pictures to boot.

From a vegetarian Buffalo falafel wrap to gluten-free sweet treats from Sweet Christine’s Bakery, take a peek at the photos below to see what’s in store.

The freezer can be a scary place—it’s dark and cold, and Lord knows how long stuff has actually been in there. So understandably, many of us stick to keeping our fresh foods in the fridge.

But it turns out, the freezer can be just as great as—and maybe even better than—the fridge when it comes to storing your produce, especially if you’re headed on vacation. Storing stuff in the freezer extends the life of tons of veggies, bread and dairy products, so they’re still fresh when you get home a few weeks, or even months, later.

But despite the freezer’s perks, if you, like me, have no idea how to properly freeze your food, pay attention: Slate has created this super useful video for all of us cursed with freezer fear. The short video is loaded with tricks for freezing everything from eggs to herbs to avocados. Trust me, by the time you’re done watching you’ll be a food-freezing pro. Check out the video below.

I know, I know. I’m sorry to bring up the F-A-L-L word. It’s still August. This summer has been pretty much perfect. And I totally agree with Foobooz that we shouldn’t be ringing the death knell of summer just yet by hastening the coming of cozy sweaters, falling leaves and pumpkin everything.

In fact, I actually considered not doing this post—not yet, anyway—out of respect for your summer. (You’re welcome!) But then I figured, since we’re talking about athletic endeavors here and some of you might actually like to train for these races, I needed to give you ample lead time. (You’re welcome!) Rock, meet Hard Place.

As you can see, I’m going with my gut here—also, my coworkers said I would get a pass for this one, considering the training and all—and posting 10 fun fall 5Ks to add to your calendar. Read about ‘em below, start training and, by all means, enjoy the last few weeks of summer. Just hold off on those pumpkin lattes for now.

If someone asked you to list the foods you think the Fittest Man on Earth eats on the regular, you would probably rattle off every superfood you could think of: kale, sweet potatoes, quinoa. Well, you would be wrong. When asked about his diet, the recently re-crowned Fittest Man on Earth, four-time winner of the CrossFit Games Rich Froning, told Refinery29, “Bro, I don’t eat veggies really. Ranch dressing on veggie trays is about what I do.” Say whaaat?
