Choosing Coconut Oil
Choosing unrefined, or "virgin" coconut oil will provide the most benefits since processing practices can negate its favorable properties.

Juice Cleanses Not for Healthy Weight Loss
MYTH: Juice Cleanses Help You Eliminate Toxins"People think juice cleanses are a good way to detox the body," says McDaniel. "But I remind my clients that you have a built-in detox organ, the liver, and it''s very good at what it does." It probably won''t harm you if you go on a juice cleanse for a day or so, but as a way to lose weight, it''s not such a good idea since it deprives you of proteins and fats and may lead to muscle loss.

Losing Your Hair?
Hair LossWhen you don''t get the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs from your diet, it can cause your hair to fall out. For instance, too little protein in your diet can damage healthy hair, and inhibit your body''s ability to build new hair follicles, which can cause noticeable hair loss after about two to three months of a protein-deficient diet. Very strict weight-loss diets can also cause noticeable hair loss, which commonly occurs about three months after losing 15 pounds or more of body weight.

Nuts & Chocolate = Mental Longevity?
Compounds called plant sterols may help protect against Alzheimer''s, German research reveals.  Mice on a diet enriched with stigmasterol - a plant sterol found in dark chocolate and many tree nuts, had 62% fewer Alzheimer''s-related brain proteins than mice that consumed no stigmasterol.

Step Away from the White Stuff
Loading up on sugar may strain your heart, a study in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests.  People who took in about 20% of their calories from added sugars were 38% more likely to die of heart disease than those who ate less than 10%.

Crispy Quinoa Sliders

  • 2/3 C quinoa (keen-wah)
  • Two 1-inch thick slices wheat bread, crusts removed and bread cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C coursely grated zucchini
  • 1/2 C. freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/4 C chopped chives
  • 3 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 t. kosher salt
  • 1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • Mini burger buns, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles, for serving


In a medium saucepan, cook the quinoa in boiling water until just tender, 10 minutes. Drain and spread on baking sheet to cool. In a food processor, pulse the bread until coarse crumbs form; you should have about 1 cup.  In a bowl, whisk the eggs.  Squeeze the liquid from the zucchini and add the zucchini to the eggs.  Stir in the cheese, chives, garlic, s&p.  Mix in the quinoa and bread crumbs.  Let stand 10 min. Using a 1/4-cup measure, scoop 12 mounds and form each one into a 1/2-inch thick patty.  In a  large nonstick skillet, heat 1 T of oil.  Add the patties and cook until golden on the bottom, 3 minutes.  Add 1 T of oil to skillet, flip the patties and cook for 3 minutes until crisp.   Repeat with the remaining patties and oil.
