Snack Attack: Healthy Yogurt Toppers You’ll Love

I’ve long been a fan of basic Greek yogurt. From baked goods to simple snacks, the creamy, thick, and tangy yogurt is very versatile. But lately, I’ve been kind of bored. Actually, very bored. I’ve almost stopped eating yogurt entirely because I was much happier eating whole-grain cheddar crackers or a hard-boiled egg with a bit of smoked salt. Still, […]

How to Reheat Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reheating a hard-boiled egg in a microwave seems harmless. It’s just a few seconds. What could really go wrong? A lot, actually. A reheated hard-boiled egg will explode when you cut or bite into it. That’s something I learned the hard way. Instead of that experiment, here’s a trick for reheating or warming a hard-boiled egg, if you’re like me and […]

We Tried It: A Sweet Pop with Benefits

A frozen fruit pop is childhood nostalgia. In one single bite, I’m instantly transported back to summer camp. Covered in bug spray and sunscreen with a hand-beaded name tag around my neck, I loved having a frosty treat on the edge of the creek that flowed near my camp’s snack hut. Back then, of course, frozen fruit pops were sugar and “fruit”-flavored concoctions. Today’s pops, […]

5 on Friday: Fun Kitchen Finds Under $25

Some girls splurge on nail polish, lipstick, and perfume. Some girls splurge on designer labels, expensive shoes, and high-dollar dresses. I splurge on kitchen gadgets. And it’s not really even a splurge. Most small kitchen gadgets are a few ten dollar bills. I like the bigger ones, too (looking at you, KitchenAid mixer), but when I need a pick-me-up, I […]

Try Two New Whole Grains

Fiber-rich whole grains’ many benefits range from lowering your risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even dementia to helping you shed more belly fat.

The Biggest Loser isn’t inspiring. It’s humiliating.

When The Biggest Loser is back with new episodes, I avoid the TV like it has the plague. I’ve never watched an entire episode of the reality show, which is currently casting for its 17th season. I don’t own any products connected with the television show or its personalities. That’s because I do not like The Biggest Loser. Not even one […]
