11 Healthy Smoothie Ingredients You Need to Start Buying

Some people can't start their day without a venti-sized quadruple-shot latte. Me? I can't get going without my morning green smoothie. Go ahead.

8 'Healthy' Snacks That Are More Fattening Than a Twinkie

When I think of the most decadent, fattening food I can eat, my mind doesn't go to the high-priced, frou frou chocolate éclair or the rich and creamy New York cheesecake.
