When I catch a cold, there's nothing I crave more than a bowl of hot soup. My favorite recipes are packed with hydrating broth and immune-boosting vegetables that help me feel better in no time! Not in the mood for soup? Many fruits, nuts, and whole grains can work wonders, too. Want to learn how to feel better faster without skimping on flavor?
Have a food myth or two you'd like to see gone? Let's get to it! Here's a hint: You can eat eggs and burgers. Believe that dessert can't be healthy or that you can't get significant protein from non-meat dishes? As a dietitian, I love busting common nutrition myths like these ones. The good news? You don't need to suffer through a juice cleanse (or eliminate eggs or chocolate!) to feel your best. Ready for the whole truth?
Burgers are a staple at summer cookouts, but they aren't exactly considered a health food. So what can you do to make your burgers more nutritious? I like mixing vegetables into my bean burger patties and serving them with a colorful salad on the side. Looking for more simple tricks?
