Healthy tips for busy people. Get the skinny. Start feeling better.

The right foods can boost your mood, fuel your mind and fight disease. We know this, but making our behaviors match our desires can be, well, challenging. In a perfect world, we would all have adequate time and money to shop, prep and cook nutritious and delicious meals that every member of our family would rave about.

Then reality sets in...

Sometimes our overscheduled lives make eating healthy difficult. Could be the cost of food drives our choices, or maybe it’s just an overall lack of motivation. In either case, we plan to provide you with a foundation of healthy recipes and tips for making meal time quick, easy and tasty.

Just like not all calories are equal, not all health information is equal. Here you will learn which foods are nutrient-dense and how your food consumption impacts your overall wellbeing. We’ll talk good fats versus bad fats, which foods are in season, when and what to eat. You don’t have to be a professional chef or a dietician to improve your health through your diet; we’ll cover those aspects with our expert contributors. Let’s get started.

At my house, we are a chips and dips crew. I always have salsa in the refrigerator and chips in the pantry.
