Easter Candy

Easter food brings to mind family brunches, eggs (of course!) and baskets filled with Easter candy. Those pastel-wrapped treats and egg-shaped chocolates are certainly tempting, but are you getting more added sugar than you bargained for? Grab a handful of bite-sized candy and you may very well end up over the recommended daily limit on added sugars, which is 10 percent of calories, or about 6 teaspoons of sugar for women and 9 teaspoons for men.

When the seriously fit celebrity trainer Bob Harper suffered a heart attack a few weeks ago, I was just as shocked as most of the world. He works out for a living—the man's muscles have muscles—not to mention the fact that he's only 51 years old. But, heart disease runs in his family and genetics are a huge risk factor when it comes to heart health. The good news, Harper is recovering nicely if his Instagram feed is any indication.

Don’t send me to the store if you want to eat tonight. I can wander the aisles for ages, clutching a few ragged coupons, and wind up with a jar of capers, a bag of organic buckwheat flour, 2 kiwis, some Vermont Cheddar and a bag of frozen peas. That’s an Iron Chef challenge, not dinner. (Good thing I’m somewhat more coordinated as managing editor of EatingWell than I am in the grocery store.)
