Today’s headlines are often marked with news of the next over-hyped diet plan that promises pounds lost fast. And for years, the diet industry has told you that carbohydrates are simply not good for you and they make you fat. The truth is that we have all been duped into believing the notion that carbs are bad. Finally, from the editors of Health magazine, the leading authority on healthy living, comes THE CARBLOVERS DIET: Eat What You Love, Get Slim For Life (Oxmoor House; August 2010; Hardcover; $24.95; ISBN 978-0-8487-3370-4). This book shows the reality: carbs make you thin and keep you satisfied!
THE CARBLOVERS DIET is much more than a diet book; it’s a life plan that unveils the truth – eating carbs is the only proven way to get and stay thin! Written in collaboration between Health magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Ellen Kunes and Senior Food & Nutrition Editor Frances Largeman-Roth, RD, the book reveals how to enjoy these formerly forbidden foods. Imagine enjoying Coconut French Toast or Homemade Scones for breakfast, hefty Pesto Turkey Club sandwiches for lunch, and Pasta Primavera or Salmon with Parmesan Potatoes for dinner? With the CarbLovers plan, it’s the reality. And while other diets forbid between-meal nibbles, CarbLovers actually requires two snacks a day … and by “snack” we mean Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, a bag of potato chips, or a foamy latte!
THE CARBLOVERS DIET also offers readers the following:

In the past thirty years, obesity rates have tripled in the US, while school budgets for health and fitness have only gotten tighter. Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit (www.HenkelHelps.com) is doing its best to combat these issues by rewarding one deserving school in the US with $25,000 to be used toward providing enhanced health and fitness education, equipment, technology, resources and service for their students and community.
This campaign has a simple mission – to help schools, communities, and families nationwide address the urgent health and fitness crisis among our nation’s youth, while acknowledging the budget crisis faced by schools across the country. The winning school and sweepstakes winner will be announced in January 2011.
WHAT: Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit will reward one deserving school with $25,000 to be used towards providing enhanced health and fitness education, equipment, technology, resources and services for their students and community. Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit will also launch a sweepstakes to win $5,000 in fitness cash to help improve the health and fitness of the winner and their family.
Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit was created to help schools, communities, and families nationwide address the urgent health and fitness crisis among our nation’s youth, while acknowledging the budget crisis faced by schools across the country.
The Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit campaign is endorsed and supported by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), America’s leading authority on fitness and one of the largest fitness certification, education and training organizations in the world.
WHY: Obesity rates have tripled in the past 30 years—a trend that means, for the first time in our history, American children may face a shorter expected lifespan than their parents. Moreover, we spend $150 billion every year to treat obesity-related conditions—yet the median physical education budget for schools in the United States is only $764 per school year.
“Students who are fit and healthy are more ready to learn. Physical education is a critical contributor to physical fitness, health and academic performance,” says NASPE President Dr. Stephen C. Jefferies, professor and director of graduate studies, Central Washington University—a statement that Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit takes to heart.
HOW: Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit encourages parents, students, educators and community members to visit http://www.HenkelHelps.com to nominate their local school by answering a fundamental question with inspirational answers: “What Would Your School Do with $25,000 to Improve Youth Fitness?”
Finalists will receive a free Flip video camera to create a brief video that bring to life the health and fitness issues facing their school and their plan for making the most of the $25,000 prize.
Consumers will vote online at http://www.HenkelHelps.com to select the $25,000 winning school entry. Consumers can also visit http://www.HenkelHelps.com to enter the Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit Sweepstakes.
WHEN: Essay nominations will be accepted starting August 1, 2010 through September 30, 2010. In October 2010, ten (10) finalists will be chosen by Henkel and the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
The Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit 2010 $25,000 winning school and sweepstakes winner will be announced in January 2011.

I just found some great recipes on the Kraft Website. They have a bunch of quick and easy 500 calorie or less recipes for all of us watching what we eat!
Ok, I just found this new site called Yummly.com. It rates recipes on how they taste in a few categories. I typed in chicken to see what it came up with and already found a few to try out!
here is the press release:
Meet Yummly.com: the world’s first intelligent, semantic search platform for food and recipes. Yummly is revolutionizing the way people interact with food on the internet by radically simplifying and personalizing the search process. The website launched on June 22 to rave reviews and is rapidly becoming the Web’s premiere destination for the more than 214 million cooking enthusiasts in North America.
TechCrunch raves: “Yummly’s semantic search engine is the ultimate online cookbook for foodies… Once [they] start using this powerful search portal, I have a feeling that they may never return to other recipe sites.”
Powerful filters and search features allow Yummly to ‘understand’ you and your preferences (like Netflix for movies, Pandora for music, and Amazon.com for shopping), aggregating more than 500,000 recipes from the top cooking sites you already love like AllRecipes, CHOW, The Food Network, and Epicurious.
Tasting Table says: “…what makes Yummly stand out is its intuition: The more you use it, the better it understands your taste and quibbles, then employs its algorithms to recommend recipes to match. Love lamb but hate rosemary? No problem.”
Yummly’s robust feature set includes:
Happy Recipe Hunting!!!
