Stuffed Cherry TomatoesThe phrase big things come in small packages best describes flavor-packed Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes (shown here), which are perfect to pop while waiting for tip-off.
I dropped the ball with my children's snacks. I never sank so low as to give them candy between meals, although I did allow them plenty of sweets. That, I don't regret a bit. But I do feel bad that the snack drawer in our kitchen was always crammed with cookies and potato chips (make these healthy Oven-Baked Garlic-Herb Potato Chips) and Doritos and cereal, cereal, cereal -- all whenever and in whatever quantities the kids wanted. From age 7 to 11, I think my son lived mainly on chips and cereal. Luckily, both kids grew up to be justread more

Tasty snacks, packed with energy and ready to grab when you need them the most. Sound like a dream? Well, it is: Americans spend an average of 30 minutes each day snacking, consuming as many as 250 additional calories from the kind of bite-sized, low-effort treats that are usually way too high in salt and sugar. We're out to change all that this year with healthy snacks -- the kind that won't fill you up or fill you with guilt for serving them to the kids. (Yes, even cookies and candy bars!)

Before you reach for that mid-afternoon snack for an energy boost to carry you through to the end of the day, consider the fact that you might be doing yourself more harm than good (unless you make these healthy snacks.) According to a new study by the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, the "energy boost of a sugary snack wears off quickly." Instead, have fresh fruit, dried fruit, or nuts, which are a healthy and long-lasting source of energy, says the NHS, adding, "If you must have chocolate, choose a few squares of good-quality plain chocolate. It containsread more
Back when road-tripping Americans were getting their "kicks on Route 66," roadside diners and small-town restaurants offered a variety of tasty, local and reasonably healthy food options for hungry travelers. Nowadays, American freeways don't possess quite as much charm. Unless you're willing to go off the beaten path, it can be hard to find anything but fast-food joints and gas-station junk food. As we enter into summer vacation season, we've got a plan for all you road warriors trying to eat healthy on your journey: pack your own! When you pack your own snacks and meals, not only canread more
The calendar might say summer starts in a few weeks, but most people consider Memorial Day weekend to be the season's unofficial kickoff, and that means ... bathing suit season (!!).

Fortunately, coupons can be an asset towards healthy eating. It's a common misconception that coupons are only issued for unhealthy processed foods. While there's no shortage of coupons for fatty snacks and prepared dishes, there are many available for healthy staples.read more
It's easy to convince ourselves that some foods might be "healthy" when, in fact, they're pure junk. Making ourselves believe that Twinkies are a great source of dairy (that cream filling counts, right?).
Everyone loves snacks, but no one loves the extra calories. When I first saw "100 calorie snack packs," I thought they were a great idea -- convenient, measurable, guilt-free -- until I discovered that each pricey pouch contained just a tiny handful of weirdly thin cookies. I only bought them that one time, but they're still around.
I'm usually an all-or-nothing kind of girl when it comes to dessert. I'd rather have a small slice of rich, chocolate cake with thick, fudgey icing or a creamy slab of cheesecake than a big slice of reduced-fat dry, crumbly something or other. Except when it comes to the holidays.
