We are inundated with “helpful” infomercial producers, authors, friends, and family telling us how to eat healthfully. There are books, CDs, and whole coaching programs focused almost exclusively on teaching us about health, nutrition, and eating.
There are so many sources that, in fact, it may seem overwhelming. These people are (mostly) well-meaning. They really do want to help, but health and nutrition are confusing, right?

There are lots of great crock pot recipes on the web. Some of our favorites can be found at EatingWell.com and Parents.com, but there are many others. And the recipe variations are endless too. You can fix an old favorite like beef stew, split pea soup or turkey chilli, or be … Read the rest
Fiber is so important to your health. It not only keeps you regular, recent studies show that a fiber-rich diet can help you control your weight and even trim your waistline.
Most of us have far too little fiber in our diets. The American Dietetic Association recommends that healthy adults consume between 20 and 35 grams of fiber per day. Unfortunately, studies have found that the average intake for adult Americans is only 14-15 grams per day.
These findings aren’t really surprising, since the best sources of natural fiber are fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and beans. The typical American … Read the rest
