When it’s stifling hot outside and there’s nowhere to escape the heat, I like to treat myself to an ice-cold beverage. But some of my favorite summer drinks, such as milkshakes and iced coffees, are loaded with calories. Just because it fits through a straw doesn’t mean it’s good for me. (Check out 6 more healthy-sounding foods that really aren’t here.)

So when I’m craving a cool summer sipper that won’t take all day at the gym to work off, I turn to my favorite healthy summer drink recipes instead. The slushie I would have...

I just finished booking a week-long summer vacation at the beach, and I can’t wait! But a week at the beach also means a week in a bikini. I’m not sure which is going to be the bigger challenge—finding a week’s worth of bikinis that I actually like or making my body bikini-worthy.

But with this diet trick, I’m thinking looking good in the bikini may not be that difficult.

My dad is a gadget guy. (Seriously, have you ever met a dad who wasn't?) He also loves good food. So when it's time to give him a gift for Father’s Day, I like to pick something that satisfies certain requirements: it’s gotta be gadgety, it’s gotta be good and/or useful, and it must indulge his inner “foodie”. With that in mind, and with some help from my colleagues in the EatingWell Test Kitchen, who have tested these products, here are some of our top picks for dads—yours and mine:

Onion goggles?? And more kitchen tools you didn’t know you needed.

I am mad about seafood. Madly in love with how it tastes of the ocean: light, healthy and fresh. Wild fish are the last truly wild (as opposed to farmed) food that’s a regular part of the American diet. Fortunately, more and more companies, ranging from Walmart to Whole Foods, are sourcing their seafood sustainably and labeling it that way.
