High in protein and calcium, and a probiotic powerhouse (if it’s got the live and active cultures label), yogurt is a magnificent food. Not only is yogurt simply delicious alone as a healthy snack or breakfast, it’s also an extremely versatile cooking ingredient. It works as a lower-calorie and lower-saturated-fat replacement for cream, mayo, oil and sour cream in many recipes.</p> <p><strong>Related:</strong> <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/easy_recipes_with_yogurt">Easy Recipes with Yogurt</a></p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_make_your_own_homemade_yogurt#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Breana Lai Cooking tips Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Fri, 28 Feb 2014 21:55:33 +0000 Sarah Hoff 281746 at http://www.eatingwell.com How I Lost 20 Pounds: Meet Nancy Roscigno http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/how_i_lost_20_pounds_meet_nancy_roscigno <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/how_i_lost_20_pounds_meet_nancy_roscigno" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/5285166_Jimmy_Williams.jpg" alt="How I Lost 20 Pounds: Meet Nancy Roscigno Blog Post" title="How I Lost 20 Pounds: Meet Nancy Roscigno Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Nancy Roscigno, a 47-year-old interior designer from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, lost over 20 pounds with her girlfriends.

Because the blade is wider at the base, it’s strong enough to cut through a winter squash and the tapered point makes it just the right shape for the rocking motion used to mince, slice and dice. When shopping for a new knife, there are three things to consider: how it feels, what the blade is made of and the way it’s constructed. Spend some time in a kitchen store and try a few out. The material the handle is made from does not necessarily indicate quality—so find one that fits comfortably in your hand.</p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_best_kitchen_knives#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Cooking tips Kitchen tools Stacy Fraser Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Fri, 03 Jan 2014 19:51:15 +0000 Stefan_20 280815 at http://www.eatingwell.com 5 ways to cook healthier in 2014 http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/5_ways_to_cook_healthier_in_2014 <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/5_ways_to_cook_healthier_in_2014" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/stacy_1_0.jpg" alt="5 ways to cook healthier in 2014 Blog Post" title="5 ways to cook healthier in 2014 Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>If you&rsquo;re resolving to eat healthier this year, consider starting in the kitchen.
