Sweet potatoes are, well, pretty sweet -- and we're not just talking about how they taste. One of these vibrant root vegetables packs more than three times your recommended daily intake of skin- and vision-enhancing vitamin A. To boot, sweet potatoes serve up a healthy dose of fiber, as well as potassium and B vitamins. read more
Nothing says "summer" like an ice-cold glass of lemonade. But even if you have your sugar-to-lemon ratio just right, traditional lemonade recipes get old after a few pitchers. read more
If you're a coffee lover, you know exactly how you like your morning cups to be made (black; cream and sugar; cappuccino-style, etc.), and you're obsessive to the point of being fanatical about your java. I hate to say it, but as a fellow person dependent on coffee, that's so boring. At this point even using almond milk instead of cream is kind of basic. read more

Packed with sugar and alcoholic goodness, sangria isn't exactly health food. That said, it makes an absolutely excellent treat on cheat day -- after all, it's got everything you could ask for in a summery cocktail: Copious fruit juices (and/or fruit-flavored alcohol), wine, bubbly fizz, and, perhaps most importantly of all, booze-soaked fruit. Sangria's perfect for every summer occasion, be it a birthday barbecue, a vacation on a white sand beach, or a good late-afternoon float in the pool. read more
As beauty editors, we fiercely love our anti-aging lotions and potions. But what you put in your face (or rather, your mouth) is just as important as what you put on it -- and maybe, according to dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD, even more so. Research shows that when you feed yourself, you feed your skin -- and all of those salty snacks and sweet treats have a way of mucking up your complexion. read more

Hey, so you know those flabby bits under your arms that wave in the wind every time you say goodbye? Those fleshy wings that convince you to purchase a matching sweater every time you buy a new tank top or sleeveless dress? Yeah, well, those aren't just the bane of your existence, they happen to the best of us ... even celebrities (please hold all shock, horror, and awe). See workout
