My husband, Dan, has been charged with a mission: he has to lose 15 pounds in three months or the doctor ups his blood pressure medication. (Get a 28-day meal plan of delicious diet recipes for a skinnier you.)

Dan’s trying hard to lose weight: he’s exercising more, cutting down his portion sizes and drinking less beer. We’re also skipping easy but calorie-loaded takeout in favor of cooking more low-cal dinners at home. Here are 4 easy delicious dinners we’ve recently made that are 300 calories or less:

Last week I blogged about what to eat right now for better breast health. I received a lot of comments—and concerns—from readers, mostly on the topic of soy. A few months ago, I too started wondering about the connection between soy and breast health. Soy is touted as a food that can prevent breast cancer—and also implicated as one that might promote it. In the last year, I’ve increased how much soy I eat each week because I’ve been eating a more vegetarian-based diet. (...

And for as many readers who loved the recipes as much as I do, there were a handful of people who wished I had included desserts that didn’t contain any added sugar. (Great feedback, thanks!)

If I was stranded on a desert island and could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would have to be potatoes. I never get tired of them. Apparently, neither does Oprah Winfrey. She’s been quoted as saying, “My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with.”

Love her, and love potatoes—my ultimate comfort food. I’ve got plenty of great potato recipes to make the most of this versatile vegetable.

Here are some of my favorite...

In my house, fall means football. I grew up watching games on the weekends with my football-loving father, went to a big football college (yeah Penn State!) and married a guy who loves the game. On the weekends we invite our friends and their kids over to watch games and we make lots of yummy tailgating snacks for the crowd. (Find 36 healthy tailgating recipes for apps, drinks and more.)

No spread is complete without chips and dips, but since we try to eat healthy, I make my own lighter versions instead of opening a bag of high-fat chips and a carton of calorie-loaded dip. They actually taste better than the store-bought stuff and don’t take much time, especially the ...
