Regular: By the Numbers</strong></p> <p>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.</p> <p>Pictured Recipe: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/apple_oatmeal.html">Apple Oatmeal</a></p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/which_is_healthier_greek_yogurt_or_regular_yogurt#comments Food Blog Diet Food & health news Health Lisa D'Agrosa Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 17 Mar 2014 16:35:22 +0000 Nifer 282212 at http://www.eatingwell.com 6 New and Genius Ways to Use Your Muffin Tin http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/6_new_and_genius_ways_to_use_your_muffin_tin <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/6_new_and_genius_ways_to_use_your_muffin_tin" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MV8742_Beisch.JPG" alt="6 New and Genius Ways to Use Your Muffin Tin Blog Post" title="6 New and Genius Ways to Use Your Muffin Tin Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>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.

My mom and I were excited to learn how to make authentic Chinese food because my Hong Kong-born dad and I preferred it to all other foods. I was the youngest student to ever enroll and I had to stand on a stepstool to be tall enough to mix the ingredients in the wok. It was here I first kindled my passion for cooking. I also learned that Chinese cooking isn’t difficult as long as you have the right ingredients.</p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/essential_staples_for_quick_easy_chinese_meals#comments Food Blog Breana Lai Cooking tips Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 29 Jan 2014 19:10:31 +0000 Stefan_20 281274 at http://www.eatingwell.com A Week of Clean-Eating Dinners and Sides http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/a_week_of_clean_eating_dinners_and_sides <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/a_week_of_clean_eating_dinners_and_sides" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MF8177_Ardito_2.JPG" alt="A Week of Clean-Eating Dinners and Sides Blog Post" title="A Week of Clean-Eating Dinners and Sides Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Eating clean may seem like a trendy idea, but in the EatingWell Test Kitchen, it’s what we always think about when we develop recipes—and how we like to cook at home.

These tiny cured fish pack a wallop of flavor in tiny amounts and because of that, chefs like to add them to everything from salad dressing to beef stew. You might be turning up your nose, thinking of those salty, shriveled bits on pizza. However, canned or cured anchovies are a totally different taste experience.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/anchovy_power_the_secret_ingredient_you_don_t_know_chefs_are_using_to_amp_up_flavor#comments Food Blog Cooking tips Hilary Meyer Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 15 Jan 2014 17:20:49 +0000 Nifer 281091 at http://www.eatingwell.com Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_from_the_new_january_issue_of_eatingwell <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_from_the_new_january_issue_of_eatingwell" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/SD8670_Westphalen.JPG" alt="Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell Blog Post" title="Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>When you look the new January/February issue of EatingWell magazine, there are a couple things you’ll notice right away.

You’re tired from working all day or maybe your kid’s soccer practice ran late. You feel rushed while you’re cooking, rushed while you eat, and then of course there’s the cleanup. You could go out to a restaurant, but that gets pricy. Plus it’s hard to monitor whether what you’re eating is healthy when you’re ordering off a menu. What if you could eat a delicious, healthy meal at home without cooking? No, I’m not talking about frozen dinners from the grocery store.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/7_day_dinner_plan_to_eat_for_a_week_and_hardly_cook_at_all#comments Food Blog Cooking tips Dinner Hilary Meyer Family meals Quick meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 12 Dec 2013 16:14:47 +0000 Stefan_20 279969 at http://www.eatingwell.com Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8559_Ardito_0.JPG" alt="Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes Blog Post" title="Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Cooking this recipe for Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Mushroom Marsala Sauce does the travel-in-your-kitchen trick of making it feel like you’re having dinner in an Italian bistro.
