What’s yummy to bring for an easy appetizer (or just have as a snack)? We’ve got you covered, with this simple and satisfying combo that offers crunch along with the blending of cheeses, dried fruit, nuts, and yogurt.
Here’s a different take on traditional flour wraps, with crepes as the new stars. These make a light-yet-luscious lunch for a Saturday afternoon among friends, a savory weeknight meal, or a make-ahead treat for the grown-up lunchbox to bring to work. Prepping only takes about 10 minutes, then it’s in the oven for 20.
Variety may be the spice of life, but not when it comes to hepatitis (inflammation of the liver). Whether acute (short-term), or chronic (long-term), each one from this “family” of viruses can have an extremely serious impact on the body. Yet, hepatitis can be prevented, either by avoiding exposure, or (with the exception of hepatitis C, and the rarer D and E strains), by getting vaccinated.
You’re feeling the seasonal or environmental assaults on your respiratory system, triggering an allergy or asthma attack. Do you push through your workout, or hold off on exercise until you feel better?
In the beloved Peanuts comic strip, even moody Lucy got it right when she said, “Happiness is a warm puppy.” Why? Because research shows that dogs (as well as cats) are proven effective stress relievers that can provide therapeutic, emotional support on a daily basis, or in trying times.
We’re getting our “southern” on with this dish that combines your pick of good-for-you leafy greens together, or, pick your favorite, from collard to kale, mustard to turnip! At just 80 calories per serving ‒ only 16 mg cholesterol, 2 g fat, and 378 mg sodium ‒ this is a mouth-watering take on a classic (and a great source of potassium too, at 472 mg). Add this satisfying “side” to chicken or fish!
Salmon is a superb choice for one of your two recommended servings of fish each week, especially because it’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, known to help lower cholesterol (reducing the chance of heart disease). Here’s a 190-calorie recipe that’s high in protein (23 g), and low in fat (9 g), with (bonus!) a zesty rub that you can also use for other types of fish or chicken.
We are indeed a nation of multitaskers, and we give ourselves pats on the backs for accomplishing so much daily. But while we may pride ourselves on this juggling act, at the office or at home, a key place where it doesn’t work is in the car. There, reaching for that cell phone or balancing a drive-through burger can cost you (or someone else) a life.
The list of diseases resulting from smoking is long and devastating, from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and emphysema, to lung cancer, and more. Cigarette smoking alone accounts for more than 480,000 deaths per year (about one in five deaths annually), and more than 16 million people live with a smoking-related disease.
Most “mild” headaches can be chalked up to things like too much sun, a tough day at work, or not sleeping well. But when you’ve got a migraine, the pain can be extreme. Just ask the more than 37 million people in the U.S. who suffer from them.
