According to the American Heart Association, most of us consume too much sodium, and for good reason: Salt enhances the flavor of ingredients. Great news for French fries, but not so great news for our health. But, did you know that spices can enhance the flavor of your food just as effectively as salt? Spices also perfume your recipes, which could impact your waistline, too. According to research published in the journal Flavour, we unconsciously take smaller bites and eat u

As you get ready to enjoy a festive, joyful Thanksgiving with family and friends this year, here are some of my favorite healthy holiday recipes to test out. Greek Spinach Pie Here is a recipe is that it’s a lot less complicated than traditional Greek spinach pie. Some spanakopita recipes require shaping small, individual triangles.

What I like about this recipe is that it’s a lot less complicated than traditional Greek spinach pie. Some spanakopita recipes require shaping small, individual triangles. This recipe makes one big pie, which you can slice into individual portions right before serving. And when you bring the whole pie to table… it’s a showstopper! There are couple of tricks to using phyllo dough. You’ll need to let frozen dough thaw before using it, so move the package to the fridge the night

INSANITY: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So I must have been insane to start this 8 week program knowing that I was moving across the country and had multiple trips planned. But Insanity Max30 made the most sense to do given there is no equipment required and it's only half an hour a day. Instead of using that as my excuse, I used it as my reason. My reason to have a schedule to follow when I'm "too busy" to exercise. My reason to dr
“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Those words of wisdom from old Benny (Franklin, that is) make a lot of sense. Morning people pride themselves on being more productive, more successful, and more energized — and they sure act like they’ve got their stuff together (at least to us night owls). I hear once you get into the healthy routine of waking up early in the morning to exercise, you come to appreciate the quiet stillness of the early
