The best way to ensure that you're eating healthy foods without any bad-for-you additives (refined sugar, salt, etc.) is to cook at home. But eating healthy is already rough. Trading pizza and burritos for spinach salads and cauli-rice stir fry is no small feat. Cooking just adds another element to the entire process -- unless you've got the right equipment.
As far as we're concerned, the avocado is the Beatles of produce. The buttery fruit is a larger-than-life superstar, timeless and an inevitable crowd pleaser. (And, yes, rumors of a looming avocado shortage were throwing us into a panic -- until we realized we can freeze avocados.)
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.
Breakfast recipes that are fast, easy and nutritious are hard to come by, but overnight oats deliver on all three fronts. For the uninformed, this morning meal -- which has taken Pinterest by storm -- involves soaking raw oats in a liquid, like milk or soy milk, in a jar overnight. The result? A creamy, cold oatmeal dish that you can grab from the fridge as you rush to work the next morning (giving you extra time to perfect your #wokeuplikethis bedhead).
We get it: It's way easier to hit up the local salad bar or raid the communal snacks in the office kitchen than to pre-make something to nosh on for lunch -- even though packing a lunch is almost always the healthier option (and, in the case of eating out, cheaper, too).
