Here’s some news that won’t make you feel blue: July is National Blueberry Month! And that’s berry good news for those of us seeking reasons to share the health benefits of blueberries. An entire cup of blueberries has just 85 calories, and that cupful is overflowing with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber.
Let’s face it, Monday usually doesn’t have many redeeming qualities.
But today, we’re trying to turn that around by sharing some ‘super’ news — the kind that could save you a ton of money!
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzos, are hearty legumes that stand up to heat better than many other beans. Enjoy their perfect texture (and the seven grams of protein one half-cup supplies!) in this slightly spicy, tomato-based soup. Sprinkle with crushed blue corn tortilla chips as a gluten-free alternative to croutons!
Only 38 days remain until summer officially begins (not that I’m counting). Have you started your garden yet? No matter where you live, you can grow a garden. Most herbs (and some veggies) require little more than a container, a sunny ledge, a sprinkling of water and a little bit of attention. They’re easy to start from seeds, and when it’s eventually time to harvest, you’ll have aromatic, delicious and nutritious ingredients to cook with—no trip to the supermarket required! Read more →

You may be familiar with a Mediterranean diet, which typically is rich in vegetables, fruit, beans, olive oil, nuts and fish. What do those foods offer your body? The veggies and fruit provide you with fiber, vitamins and minerals, while beans offer both fiber and protein. Olive oil and nuts are powerhouses of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which are healthy unsaturated fats, sometimes referred to as “good fats.”
Spring Break, not for naught, is typically seen as the time when college kids disconnect their brains while us grown-ups get stuck doing terribly unglamorous things like cleaning closets and washing the walls. And Bombshells with younger kids are faced with the daunting task of entertaining them while they complain about how their best friend is headed to Borneo for five days while they’re stuck at home in Lame-ville.
