Research shows that interval training—workouts in which you alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods— lowers glucose better and burns more calories over a short period of time than steady-state cardio (doing the same thing for your whole workout time). Also known as HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and MIIT (moderate-intensity int...Read Full Post »

This dish is super! The combination of sweet potatoes and vegetarian meatballs make this lasagna better than any other. I’d love to add a layer of spinach or kale, but my husband doesn’t care for greens inside his food. Go figure. Instead, we eat steamed greens on the side. But you can add them in if you’d like. Just chop them fine. A bit ofRead Full Post »

Nuts can stop weight loss in a nanosecond. If you are having trouble losing weight, you might be eating too many nuts.
I agree that nuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and other essential nutrients. In research, nuts have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and not to cause weight gain; however, this is not what I see in practice.
I like to borrow a line from...Read Full Post »

I bake these in a glass baking dish and line it with compostable parchment paper, so there’s no need for oil. The bread doesn’t stick to the baking dish. Just rinse the dish, and it’s clean. The parchment paper gets tossed into the compost. See, it’s a win-win all around.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 8X8 backing dish with parchment pa...Read Full Post »

Potatoes have earned a bad rap, but they are truly a perfect food. High in fiber and low in fat, potatoes are ideal for erasing diabetes and for reaching or maintaining your goal weight. This recipe delivers delicious crispy fries without oil or salt. You can use any kind of potato, but I find that Yukon gold work best. I've included my favorite blend of spices, but you can use any th...Read Full Post »

Processing the chickpeas until they’re not yet smooth, gives an almost crunchy and definitely crumbly texture to these sweet treats. Using chickpeas instead of flour brings blood sugar down because beans give more fiber to the mixture than flour does. Beans are low-calorie and low-fat, a recipe for weight loss. Sprinkling chopped walnuts on top before baking gives more of crunch and magnifies the ta...Read Full Post »

Some Americans believe that if we eat fish and vegetables, and guzzle down wine and olive oil, we will live forever -- or at least longer than our American-diet-eating counterparts. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In the early 1960s, researchers realized that Cretans (the people living in Crete, an island in the eastern Mediterranean Sea) live...Read Full Post »

The tens of trillions of bacteria that live in your digestive tract, also known as your microbiota or gut bacteria, can make it or break it for you as far as your health is concerned. The microbiota (pronounced mi-kro-bi-O-ta) does many things, including combating disease-producing bacteria, making vitamins B and K (essential for making energy and blood clotting, respectively), and digesting food substances that...Read Full Post »
