Greek Vs. Regular: By the Numbers

Greek yogurt has surged in popularity in recent years, and with good reason. Straining out the extra whey in yogurt makes Greek yogurt thick, creamy and tangy. The plain variety has less sugar and more protein than typical yogurt. But regular yogurt delivers twice the bone-strengthening mineral calcium. Greek yogurt also tends to be more expensive than regular yogurt, because more milk goes into making each cup.

Cooking in a small kitchen can turn anyone into a minimalist. A cake pan? Forget about it; birthdays only come once a year. A toaster oven? Let your broiler do the work! But the one must-have tool you must keep in your cooking arsenal is the muffin tin. It just may be one of the coolest tools you own. Obviously, it’s great for muffins—but you can use it for so much more. And, of course, with a muffin tin you’ve got the assurance of built-in portion control. Get out your muffin tin and let the magic begin. From lasagna to sumptuous mini pies, these six foods get a whole new look.

What’s you favorite thing (besides muffins) to cook in a muffin tin?

If you really want to see that number on the scale drop, what you put in your mouth matters most. People who simply cut calories to slim down lose about 2 pounds a week, says a study in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders. At the same time, people who exercise but don’t restrict calories drop less than half a pound each week.

Eating clean also means drinking clean. You can still have some alcohol if you want—but stay within the recommended daily limit of one drink for women and two for men. One drink equals 5 ounces of wine, 1½ ounces of liquor or 12 ounces of beer.
