And most of the time, they're also super-healthy. The best way to guarantee you're drinking a healthy smoothie and not a milkshake in disguise is to make them at home. Not only do you get to control the ingredients, but also the cost (those fancy-smoothie-shop trips can add up). Whether your goal is to eat breakfast more often, get some fruit and vegetable servings in the morning or eat healthier in general, this guide to making smoothies at home will help get you there. </p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Build Up Your Arsenal to Make Healthy Smoothies in Your Kitchen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-large"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <!-- File not found: sites/default/files/3759411_630_0.jpg --> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> EatingWell.com, December 2016 </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/how_to_make_epic_smoothies_at_home#comments Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D.

You need to replace eggs, butter, dairy and any other animal-based products in traditional recipes. But once you learn what you can swap in, it becomes easier to bake up vegan treats. These tricks can also work if you're baking for someone with dairy or egg allergies, as well as if you just run out of eggs (happens to the best of us). The caveat? You're best off following a recipe that is vegan to begin with.</p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D. </div> <div class="field-item even"> Marissa Donovan M.S., R.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What to swap for eggs, dairy and butter to bake vegan treats </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="960" height="960" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/3755323.jpg?1481830261" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> EatingWell.com, December 2016 </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/vegan/vegan_substitutes_for_baking#comments Marissa Donovan M.S., R.D.

People who cook at home more tend to have healthier diets. They eat more vegetables, salads and fruits and take in fewer calories. The problem? Weeknights can be crazy—whether you work later than you planned, have hungry kids waiting less than patiently, get stuck in traffic or all of the above. That's where meal planning really helps you get a healthy dinner on the table and eat better breakfasts and lunches. So how can cooking at home become more convenient and less of a chore?</p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Plan ahead and master getting a healthy dinner on the table this week. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> EatingWell.com, December 2016 </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/weight_loss/challenge/hit_refresh/7_tips_to_help_you_master_meal_prep#comments Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D.

In fact, 90% of Americans don't get the recommended 2-3 servings a day. (For most vegetables, 1 cup is a serving. For raw, leafy vegetables like salad greens it's 2 cups). Vegetables are a great source of healthy nutrients like fiber, potassium, folate, and vitamin A. They also play a big role in helping people lose or maintain weight. Vegetables are rich in fiber, which helps fill you up. Plus, when you're eating more low-calorie vegetables, there's less space for eating less higher-calorie less-healthful foods.</p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Refresh your diet by adding more vegetables.
