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 →

Piled high, nachos are more of a meal than an appetizer. But if you fill your plate with deep-fried chips, clogging cheese and over-the-top toppings, your tummy may be headed for trouble. Instead, sub in healthy favorites, starting with oven-baked sweet potato chips. Black beans, fresh guac and creamy Greek yogurt are stacked in the center for easy dipping. Keep it light and vegan, or add extra-lean ground turkey seasoned with Mexican spices if you like meat.
They may not be able to tow you on water skis, but these flavorful vegan “boats” do make the perfect healthy appetizer for any party. They’re also filling enough to serve as a main course. Plus, it’s fun to fool your non-vegan friends with the convincingly authentic appearance of the crumbled walnut “meat!”
I love chips. Lentil chips, potato chips, veggie chips, tortilla chips – it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s in crunchy, salty and within arm’s reach.
But lately, I’ve discovered a healthier way to curb those chip cravings — with homemade baked kale chips! They take only minutes to prepare and are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium and other nutrients.
Squeeze in an extra serving of veggies at breakfast by topping a cream cheese and jam-covered bagel with fresh halved cherry tomatoes. Sprinkled with cinnamon, this creative combo makes a sweet start to your day—perfect when paired with a cup of hot herbal tea!
So you’re searching for the perfect low-cal snack. Greasy chips are out, as is anything made with neon orange “nacho cheese.” Baked chips are low in fat, but where’s the taste?
