Chickpeas, also known as garbanzos, are hearty legumes that stand up to heat better than many other beans. Enjoy their perfect texture (and the seven grams of protein one half-cup supplies!) in this slightly spicy, tomato-based soup. Sprinkle with crushed blue corn tortilla chips as a gluten-free alternative to croutons!
Beauty news flash: “oil free” is on its way out. What’s been long feared as a pore clogger and pimple trigger is now being slathered on, soaked up and raved about for surprisingly opposite effects. Oil hasn’t always been considered the bad guy. In fact, women throughout history have relied on it to soften skin and smooth hair—long before little bottles of the stuff conveniently started showing up on store shelves.
A boiled chicken breast, some celery sticks and half an apple. Sound tasty? Not exactly, but chances are, it sounds very familiar to many. Over two-thirds of Americans are overweight and many have tried a broad range of diets, including some that would consist of foods that are indeed healthy, but not enough of them and certainly not prepared in a way that’s actually appealing to the smell, sight or taste buds!
Q: I dread the thought of developing sun spots. What can I do to prevent them?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
As the weather warms up, we find ourselves out and about enjoying the sunshine and all the beauty Mother Nature offers this time of year. Swimming pools, lakes, rivers and oceans are all calling out for us to swim and play. Being outdoors is wonderful, but you must remember skin care basics! With increased outdoor activity, remember that UVA/UVB rays from the sun contribute to more than half of the aging process. That’s right. The sun contributes to aging more than anything else. Who wants wrinkles, sun spots and sagging skin?
When you have a specific health concern, maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy. Everyone seems to have a suggestion — your sister, your neighbor, the doctor on TV. There’s no shortage of information out there. But how can you remember all the details or know what or who is really right?
Kelp is a quick-growing brown seaweed, popular in Japanese cuisine and packed with fiber, minerals and phytonutrients. As a noodle, it has a neutral, non-fishy flavor and a firm, chewy texture that softens upon soaking. Eating an entire package sets you back only 10 calories! Plus, you’ll won’t get any of the starch or gluten that comes with “regular” pasta. Give kelp noodles a try in this colorful salad, made with shredded veggies, fresh herbs and hemp seeds for added crunch!
