This week, I dug up a long-lost sea salt spray to add volume to my hair. Plus, I’m sharing my all-time favorite lipstick color (hint: it’s the perfect neutral shade). Though not beauty-related, I do reveal my latest late-night snack of choice. They’re low-calorie and satisfy my sweet tooth. It’s a girl’s dream food. Read more →
Some days you don’t know what you’re craving. Your fridge is bare, or maybe there’s just nothing tickling your taste buds. These are the days you put together a basic PB&J (though it will never be as good as Mom’s). Since you’re a grown-up now, you could at least get a little creative with the brown bag classic. What you need is a fancier, more refined peanut butter and jelly – something the French may know a thing or two about. Thus, the PB&J French Toast Cup was born. Read more →
Q: What is Psyllium?
A: Psyllium seed husks are part of the seeds of the plant Plantago ovata, which is native to India and Pakistan. Psyllium is primarily known for being an excellent source of soluble dietary fiber. The health benefits of psyllium fiber are far reaching, however, and may help to support heart health, gastrointestinal health and blood sugar. While the fiber found in psyllium is similar to that in oats and barley, it’s actually not wheat; thus, making it an excellent source of fiber for gluten-free dieters. Read more →
Big Italian dinners and diets typically don’t mix. But watching your waistline doesn’t have to mean rich, savory meals are always off limits. Rather than pining away for pasta, make a mouthwatering main dish with tender chicken, loads of veggies and bold flavor brought on by a long, slow simmer in tomato sauce with authentic Italian spices. You won’t miss the carb-heavy bed of noodles or rice under classic cacciatore combos thanks to this recipe’s 55 grams of protein per serving!
Ta ta, tomatoes! This salsa’s gone tropical, filled with chunks of mango, colorful peppers and fresh, flavorful herbs. Scoop it up with whole-grain crackers or organic blue corn chips for a healthy, hearty snack. It’s also great on grilled salmon (who needs creamy sauce?) or piled on a bean burger as a sweet and colorful condiment. Dip, dunk and heap on to your heart’s content—the whole bowl comes with just 311 calories and a little more than a single gram of fat.
Growing up, Mom never let you lick the cookie dough bowl, warning that raw eggs could make you sick. Now you have nothing to worry about, because this peanut butter faux dough is no danger to your health — or your waistline. Read more →
