6 Healthy Spices that Amp Up Flavor (not Calories)

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 up to 10 percent less when a meal has a strong aroma. It also doesn’t take an advanced degree to work out that the more flavorsome your food, the more satisfying your meal. Best for Seasoning: Black Pepper Healthy benefit

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. 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! Get the recipe. Maple & Turkey Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts Brussels sprouts lovers will be gaga for them, and even people who are squeamish about the tiny cabbages will want to devour them when they’re

Greek Spinach Pie (Spanikopita)

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 before (or leave it on your counter while you prepare the rest of your meal). Phyllo tends to dry out quickly; while you work, spread a clean, slightly damp dish towel over the unused stack of dough to keep it moist and

Three Cheese Macaroni Casserole

Be still my heart, 21 Day Fix approved Mac & Cheese! This three cheese macaroni casserole recipe takes this dish to the next level. A hearty amount of ricotta cheese provides most of the creaminess in the dish. And, because part-skim ricotta is low in fat and packed with protein, it contributes a lot to the 18 grams of protein per serving, without cranking up the fat and calories. The mozzarella melts beautifully in the oven, adding creaminess and those long strands of melty cheese that stretch as you lift each each bite to your mouth. Yum. And finally, the Parmesan cheese gives the dish a bit of sophisticated je ne sais quoi. In order to make this macaroni casserole more wholesome, there’s

Total Time: 50 min. Prep Time: 15 min. Cooking Time: 35 min. Yield: 6 servings, 4 Brussels sprouts each 21 Day Fix portions: 1 Green, ½ Red Ingredients: Aluminum foil 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar 24 medium Brussels sprouts 12 slices

Insanity Max30: Before and After Results

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 drink a shake daily so it was one less meal to prep. And 9 weeks later, here I am. I missed one week due to travel. I wasn't perfect with the moves. I had cocktails and treat meals and skipped a few workouts. But overall,

5 Great Reasons to Exercise in the Morning

“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 morning, and a warm cup of coffee. 1. 1. You may end up being more productive There’s something to be said about checking the exercise box off on your to-do list first thing in the morning. Being up and exercising befo

10 Ways to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

It's that time of year when extra calories lurk around every corner... baked goods at the office, eggnog at your neighbor's, jelly doughnuts for Hanukkah or chocolates in your stocking. All these extra goodies add up, and if you're like most Americans, you'll put on a pound or two by New Year's Day. According to researchers at the National Institutes of Health, most Americans never lose the weight they gain during the winter holidays. The pounds add up year after year, making holiday weight gain an important factor in adult obesity. “Weight gain over the holidays is a large part of the typical weight gain that adults have over the years,” says Dr. Jack Yanovski, head of the Unit on Growth an
