The Holiday That Tastes Like ‘Home’

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where it’s probably not a great idea to surprise your family with new-fangled recipes and non-traditional menu. That’s because people are deeply connected to the tradition and familiar joy this holiday brings.

It’s Back to Football Time!

Oh, sure, fall means back to school and leaving summer behind to return to more-regular routines. But it also means the return of football season and cheering on our favorite team! We all know the best gatherings focus on lip-smacking good food, so get ready for the season by adding a few gameday recipes to your roster.

Fall Back Into the Routine

When you’re happily ensconced in the dog days of summer, you may wish it would never end. Long days are graced with gorgeous weather, the fresh-picked flavors of seasonal fruits and vegetables, and a seemingly endless offering of outdoor events and activities.

A Savory Salute to Independence Day

Picnics, parades, concerts, fireworks—what’s not to love about the 4th of July? With so much fun packed into a single day, Independence Day is definitely a highlight of summer. And without a doubt, the best thing about the fourth is festive gatherings with family and friends, which of course, inevitably means lots of delicious food. Fresh, seasonal fruits and veggies, refreshing ice-cold drinks, hot-off-the-grill fare and all our favorite snacks and desserts make for mouth-watering menus.

Superfood + Cheese = Summer Taste Sensation 

With 20 vitamins and minerals and loads of fiber in every serving, avocados are one of nature’s most amazing superfoods. They’re a great source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6 as well as riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, potassium and folate. And although most of this delicious fruit’s calories come from fat, don’t worry! It’s the healthy monounsaturated fat that lowers cholesterol, helps keep you full and satisfied and supports the absorption of beneficial fat-soluble antioxidants. Just a few of the other benefits of avocado include:
High fiber – shown to lower the risk of disease, obesity, stroke, hypertension and diabetes.
Lutein – keeps eyes healthy and helps protect the skin against UV damage.
Folate – has shown promise in protecting against colon, stomach, pancreatic, and cervical cancers.

Happy Father’s Day to the Big Cheese.

A thoughtful card and gift is great, but ask any dad what his dream Father’s Day would be and his likely response: spending the day doing the things he loves accompanied by all his favorite foods. It’s as simple as that!

The Great Outdoors is Calling Your Name

There’s nothing like summer weekends (or better yet, vacation) jam-packed with a flurry of events and activities. Beautiful weather beckons us to parks, beaches, woods and trails for our favorite sports, gatherings and adventures and it just feels good to be outside.

Enjoy a healthy daily dose of nature.

You know that exercise, fresh air and sunshine is good for you, but there are even more reasons why we should spend time each day—even just 15 minutes—outdoors.

Stay on Track by Keeping Goals Simple

It’s time for a little reality check. Although it may seem like only yesterday, it’s been four months since many of us were making New Year’s resolutions. If your resolve has fizzled out a bit, never fear. Spring, and in fact, right now, is always a good time to make positive changes, and we’ve got some solid advice on how to make good habits stick.
