I'm always getting questions about what is OK (and what's not!) to eat at night. If your tummy is rumbling, is it all right to have a small snack? And what about the occasional nightcap?
Guess what? There are a handful of superfoods out there that contain sleep-helping nutrients like
melatonin and tryptophan. I talked with the New York Post to bring the short list of these foods to YOU!
Amy's Recipe of the Week: Protein-Rich Cherry French Toast
One of my fave brunch dishes is baked French toast. This recipe adds a secret ingredient for an extra dose of fall flavor and antioxidants! I hope you love it as much as I do. It's perfect for brunch with family or friends. (And try more of my healthy recipes!)
I love, love winter squash. They taste so hearty and are so, so good for you, supplying plenty of eye-helping beta carotene and cholesterol-helping fiber. My new article for Yoga Journal introduces you to three yummy and healthy squashes — and gives you ideas for prepping them! (Try my Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.)
