My kids leave for school at all hours in the morning so my goal is to make them something quick and healthy! Smoothies are the ultimate way to jam pack as much nutrition as possible into one drink. These 6 Superfood Smoothies are the perfect meal and full of vitamins which will keep them energized and their minds sharp. The key is the smoothies must taste amazing or my kids won’t drink them! I sneak in handfuls of spinach without them even detecting it since it has such a mild flavor yet is such a nutritional powerhouse.
Eating dessert every day can be good for you, as long as you don’t overdo it. Make a spoonful of ice cream the jewel and a bowl of fruit the crown. Cut down on the chips by pairing each bite with lots of chunky, filling fresh salsa, suggests Jeff Novick, director of nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa in Florida. Balance a little cheese with a lot of fruit or salad.
Most weight loss supplements are not tested in clinical trials or included in evaluation studies conducted under well-controlled conditions with average human volunteers. Weight loss pill manufacturers are not required to test new ingredients or even to list things like potential side effects on the product’s label. Therefore it can be hard to tell what type of ingredients you’re even ingesting when consuming weight loss supplements or how you’ll react to different dosages.
Really good ideas!! I love the different teas! I’m a big fan of peppermint so am looking forward to trying the others!

Remember deprivation hardly works? When you get the urge for a sweet treat, turn to dark chocolate. It will help curb your craving thanks to its insulin-resistance lowering flavonoids. The healthy fats in dark chocolate can also slow the absorption of sugar into your blood stream, preventing “insulin spikes.” Studies have shown that eating some can help put a stop to cravings for sugar, salt, and fat. However, the chocolate must be 70% cocoa, otherwise it has too much milk or sugar added to be beneficial.
The morning after the first time I drank the cleanse tea I had a little bit of a stomachache and the cleanse tea did its job. I would say after my third time drinking it my body was used to the tea (or cleansed out) and I didn’t notice a difference between drinking it or not. Although when we went out of town for a week and a half and I forgot the tea, I did notice a difference when I started drinking it again. It was like the first time all over again.
Some still consider fasting -- in any form -- to be "out there." "When I review diets that are not based on science, the question I ask myself is: Would I feed them to my family? In this case, the answer is a clear no," says Susan Roberts, PhD, chief of the Energy Metabolism Laboratory at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging and a professor of nutrition at Tufts University in Boston.
