On Feb. 2 a furry little critter named Punxsutawney Phil spoke and forecast an early spring.

15 best pillows

If you suffer from neck or shoulder pain, or you just can’t get comfortable in bed, it could well be down to your pillow. But finding the ideal balance of softness and support in a new pillow isn’t easy, with contributory factors including whether you’re a side, front or back sleeper, as well as your body shape and size. It’s also down to personal preference.

Remember that even the best pillows won’t last you longer than a few years, eventually failing to give you the support you need, as well as potentially becoming unhygienic. If your pillow is discoloured or you regularly wake up with neck ache or a blocked nose, it’s almost certainly time to go pillow shopping.

According to the Sleep Council, a good pillow should hold your head in the correct alignment that is, in the same relation to your shoulders and spine as if you were standing upright with the correct posture and be tucked well into the neck and shoulder to support your head fully.

Side sleepers, remember you’ll need more support and possibly even two pillows, while front and back sleepers may benefit from one soft pillow that’s on the thinner side. Ideally, try before you buy.

14 Great Beers to Serve with Food

Snooty sommeliers like to boast that there is a perfect wine for every food. But sometimes, a beer is even better. “The flavors of grilling, lemony citrus, and spice are areas where many wines struggle,” says Brian Jacobs, assistant general manager and beer director for The Red Cat restaurant in New York. “Well made beers are every bit as sophisticated as wine,” he adds, noting that their coldness and refreshing carbonation can make them better companions than vino for certain types of foods and meal events.

Pairing beer and food is a great excuse to explore some tasty new brews, but there’s no need to get too serious, says Jimmy Carbone, owner of New York specialty beer restaurant Jimmy’s No. “Beer is much more forgiving than wine. Unlike wine, it’s really hard to go completely wrong.” So with that in mind, here are Jacobs’ and Carbone’s top picks for making your corkscrew jealous.

Anytime you enjoy a beer, whether it’s Pabst Blue Ribbon or the fanciest, priciest Belgian brew, you’re making the decision to enjoy a frosty cold infusion of nearly empty calories (thank you, trace amounts of B vitamins and the oft debated health benefits of alcohol), plus a fairly hefty load of PointsPlus values.

See our to find the PointsPlus values for a few common regular and light beers; most clock in at 5 6 and 3 4 PointsPlus values, respectively. Food and Drug Administration does not require beer companies to reveal their products’ caloric or nutritional information to the public. (Seriously.) That’s one reason why you won’t find many specialty beers in the PointsPlus database.

Very tasty beers are usually very tasty for a reason. Many (though not all) will likely run from 6 to 10 PointsPlus values per 12 ounce can or bottle. Also, keep in mind that the higher a beer’s alcohol content, the more calories it packs. A general rule of thumb? Plan on 8 PointsPlus values per 12 ounces of fancy brew. Imbibe accordingly, and you shouldn’t be popping any buttons due to your enjoyment of malted deliciousness.

The food: Steaks and burgers

Top pick: Yuengling Traditional Lager, PA

(4.4% ABV [alcohol by volume], 12 oz. bottle)America’s oldest brewery, located in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, offers a basic lager that serves up more gusto than the mainstream brands. “This beer has a little more malty backbone to stand up to fattier meats and grilled flavors, yet it’s still approachable enough to please a crowd,” says Jacobs.

Also try: Sly Fox Brewing Dunkel Lager, PA

(4.9% ABV, 12 oz. can)”If a crisp, cold lager is a 10, dunkel lager is an 11, with some dark malt and caramel notes for added flavor,” Jacobs says.

The food: Jerk chicken or pork

Top pick: Lagunitas Brewing Company IPA, CA

(6.2% ABV, 12 oz. bottle)

“This is where beer really shines over wine, to quench the slow sear of spicy foods,” says Jacobs. India pale ale, or IPA, was originally conceived to withstand the voyage from England to India, so it’s fortified with extra everything malt, alcohol and hops. This American version is robust with citrus and grapefruit flavors from 43 kinds of hops. Spicy foods also benefit from the thirst quenching ability of a cold mainstream brew like Bud Light (3 PointsPlus values per 12 oz. can), which will at least put out the fire.

Also try: Arcadia HopMouth Double IPA Ale, MI

(8.1% ABV, 22 oz. bottle)Copious hops give this potent beer piney and floral aromas and a bitter finish. “With 8 percent alcohol and intense flavor, this will handle jerk spice or curried cuisine,” says Jacobs.

Top pick: Blue Moon Brewing Company Belgian White, CO

(5.4% ABV, 12 oz. bottle)Made in the traditional Belgian style by our pals at Coor’s, this widely available brew works well alone or with delicate foods. “Belgian white, or wit, beers traditionally have flavors of coriander and citrussy orange peel that are natural pairings for seafood,” says Jacobs. Some popular pale ales, like Sierra Nevada and Bass Ale, have a bitterness that also goes well with grilled fish.
