Each week I focus on articles, recipes and tips for Healthy Living (nutrition, fitness, weight loss, etc.)

Articles:

  2. Eat ‘Mediterranean’ – follow six simple rules (INDEPENDENT)
  3. Eight Secret Weapon Foods for Weight Loss (EATING WELL)

Recipes:

  1. Cherry & Orange Blintzes (COOKING LIGHT)
  2. Baja Butternut Squash Soup (EATING WELL)
  3. Edamame Hummus (WEIGHT WATCHERS)
  4. Moroccan-Style Beef Kabobs with Spiced Bulgur (SHAPE)

Tips:

  1. Calphalon’s Unison Nonstick Grill Pan ($49.95 via Chef’s Catalog) — beautifully sears everything from delicate scallops to slabs of pork ribs — without the use of oil. Forget about smokey charcoal and hard-to-clean outdoor grills — Calphalon’s pan makes healthy grilling easy, and clean-up a breeze!
  2. Kavli 5 Grain All Natural Whole Grain Crispbreads contain no artificial preservatives, additives or chemicals — but do offer a full 11-percent of your daily fiber requirement. Each 60 calorie crispbread is delicious served with cheese — and I like to top them with smoked salmon and cucumber slices for a quick, open-faced sandwich.
