Frisky Eats: 10 Overnight Crock Pot Breakfasts

I have this problem: every weekend (and weekday — hell, who am I kidding?), I wake up wanting breakfast already made. Unfortunately, eggs and bacon won’t make themselves, and I can’t just roll out of bed at 8 a.m. expecting my meal to be hot and ready for consumption, right? WRONG. If you have a crock pot, it’s ridiculously easy to throw some things in there the night before and wake up to a delicious breakfast. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite overnight breakfast recipes for those of you who want more time in the morning to do important things, like catch up on “Law & Order” reruns and such.

What’s Better For You, Butter Or Margarine?

Like It's Even A Debate

ASAP Science asks one of the most important questions in nutrition: According to science, what’s better for you, butter or margarine? Not what’s better in general, obviously, because that’s a laughably easy question to answer.

They break it down thusly: Butter has one or two ingredients and is minimally processed but is high in saturated fat; margarine has a ton of ingredients and is extremely processed, is sometimes high in trans fats but sometimes not, and it’s hard to tell what its nutritional value is because there’s a lot of variation.
