You’ve heard of, and probably tried, dozens of ways to use apple cider vinegar. Here’s another to add to your list! Mix a few tablespoons of ACV with some spiced cider to give ordinary baked chicken a refreshingly tangy and healthy twist.

Is your fridge stuffed with holiday leftovers? Here’s a tasty way to make some space. When you tire of turkey sandwiches, use what’s left from the big feast to make this hearty chili. A steaming, hot bowlful serves up 46 grams of lean protein to fuel those late-fall, early-winter workouts.
You’ve been shopping seasonally, buying only what’s locally available. You’ve taken the trouble to learn where you can find wild fish and which butcher at the farmer’s market offers grass-fed meat and pastured chicken. Now that you’re home and unpacking what you’ve gathered, there are a few key steps to follow in terms of food safety to make sure that, before the magic happens with the seasonings and developing flavors, you’re not going to run into any unfavorable additions, like bacteria or mold.
A red and white checked cloth, a wicker basket and…wait a second. What are you going to pack for your picnic now that the cheese and crackers you used to snack on before your meal, as well as the deli sandwiches and coleslaw that were your main course, are no longer on the menu? Now that you’re a full-fledged Paleoista, it’s hardly going to be hot dogs on buns with baked beans and macaroni salad!
If you think you’re following the Paleo diet but aren’t seeing the results or improved health benefits you’d expected, you may have fallen into one of several very common not-so-Paleo habits. Take a look at these mistakes people often make when they go Paleo.
A boiled chicken breast, some celery sticks and half an apple. Sound tasty? Not exactly, but chances are, it sounds very familiar to many. Over two-thirds of Americans are overweight and many have tried a broad range of diets, including some that would consist of foods that are indeed healthy, but not enough of them and certainly not prepared in a way that’s actually appealing to the smell, sight or taste buds!
The Paleo diet is based on the theory that our bodies haven’t significantly changed since the Stone Age. As a result, advocates say that optimal health can be achieved by eating the foods enjoyed by the hunter-gatherer tribes who flourished during the Paleolithic era. One of the key benefits of this plan: You eliminate processed foods, so that you’re following a clean eating program, thereby avoiding potentially dangerous ingredients in processed foods such as high fructose corn syrup and white flour. In addition, you benefit from healthy fats in foods such as salmon, olive oil and nuts.
