What’s actually better for you, a protein cookie or a cheeseburger?

Good Things Utah
  • On GTU this morning – During the COVID-19 pandemic, people started to put more focus on personal health problems, and people’s health consciousness has greatly improved. Exercising, choosing nutritious food and taking care of our mind and body is crucial to our wellbeing. However, sometimes it seems absurd how little we know about the things we eat. Whether it’s complicated food labels or misleading marketing techniques, figuring out if we’re eating right can be tricky. In an attempt to help her 367K followers navigate this field, personal trainer Laura Ghiacy explained in one of her videos that when looking at the stone-cold facts, a McDonald’s cheeseburger is actually better for you than a protein cookie.

  • Plus, the Wasatch saw its snowiest October in years with Alta Ski Resort reporting 67 inches, the most snow to fall during that month since 2004. Skiers and snowboarders took notice, and backcountry enthusiasts flocked to the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, flooding Alta’s parking lot with cars — for those passing by, it sure looked like the resort was open. At times there was literally a line of skiers skinning up into higher elevations under Alta’s Collins Lift, hoping to get their first taste of winter. Resorts around the West saw similar snow totals, prompting several — including Palisades Tahoe and Mammoth in California, and Wolf Creek, Keystone and A-Basin in Colorado — to start spinning lifts in October, a rare treat for American skiers and snowboarders. Some Utah resorts, including Solitude and Park City Mountain Resort, jumped to the front of the line and announced a Nov. 19 opening date, which would have meant skiers and snowboarders could have been hitting the slopes this Friday. But the October trends did not continue, the November weather got warm, and several resorts announced they would be pushing back their opening dates. We have the latest updates for skiers.

  • Finally, speaking of fashion, Kendall Jenner is making waves for wearing a revealing dress to a friend’s wedding last week. After wearing a strapless, aqua bridesmaid dress to be part of the beach ceremony for friend and bride Lauren Perez, Jenner, along with some of the other bridesmaids (including fellow model Bella Hadid), changed for the reception. Jenner’s choice of an eye-popping cut-out dress by Monot sparked social media backlash for being inappropriate for the occasion. “Oh this is in such bad taste… hoping the bride approved this first but idk what bride would ever,” Twitter user @thatgirlneedsx tweeted.
