A healthy Super Bowl party? No, that isn't an oxymoron—it's possible! Not only is it possible, but it can be just as delicious and just as fun as the caloric binge-fests we all know well from years past.
It wasn’t until recently that I understood America’s obsession with football and the Super Bowl. Prior to actually learning the rules of the game, the Super Bowl was just another social opportunity to indulge in a little too much eats. However, about the time I started to become football literate, I also learned the importance of eating well. All the pro football players have personal chefs and team dietitians who encourage them to eat healthy, so why shouldn’t their fans?
A question I ponder quite frequently is Can I be an expert in nutrition and still indulge? Absolutely!
The foundation of healthy eating is balance and moderation. How better to do so than to balance some "once-in-awhile" ingredients with some "gimme-some-more-of-that" foods in perfectly portioned muffin cups!

Easy, fast meals and the paleo diet are words that are challenging to use in the same sentence. I realized this shortly after test driving this "new style of eating." Paleo is a more thoughtful way of eating—thoughtful in terms of what you eat and how to to prepare it. That's not to say there aren't quick paleo recipes that are delicious. However, our society tends to associate fast meals with convenience foods, a "no-no" when it comes to paleo eating.
Hi friends! I'm sure a lot of you are well on your way to a healthier 2013 with all sorts of food and fitness resolutions to help keep you on track.

If I could only have one food for the rest of my life, it'd be pizza. Delivery pizza was a large contributor to the Freshman Fifty I gained during college, and my love for the pizza pie hasn't waned as I've dropped weight and adopted a healthy lifestyle. Thankfully, pizza is one of the most adaptable and varied foods on our menus. Sure, you can splurge on delivery pizza chock full of empty calories, but you can also make a healthy, balanced, and totally delicious pizza at home.
