If you're tired of the high fat and sodium levels of your favorite chips from the grocery store, why not make your own at home?

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated across the globe, but it's particularly prominent in the Southwest U.S., where Sunrise of Gilbert is located. The community's location in Arizona also makes it easy for Chef Vance Klein to acquire fresh, local ingredients to give residents an authentic taste of Mexican cuisine. This is exactly what he does with his Heart-Healthy Grilled Chicken Quesadilla dish, which he serves with Avocado Tomato Salsa.
January is the perfect time to curl up on the couch and enjoy a good movie, and of course nothing goes better with a movie than a salty snack. However, if you've resolved to cut back on fatty snacks like potato chips or popcorn loaded with butter, you might be hesitant to sit down for a movie for fear of the cravings it could bring on. Fortunately, you still can enjoy a good flick when you make this healthy but satisfying snack food - kale chips.
Near Year's is a time of reflection as well as a chance to look ahead and make new goals. If last year's resolution had anything to do with getting healthy, you might be dreading holiday parties filled with high-calorie treats like bacon-wrapped scallops and baked brie. However, you don't have to ring in the new year with an unhealthy hors d'oeuvre. Instead, offer to bring this delicious and nutritious Mediterranean-inspired Eggplant Saffron Mint Yogurt Dip, adapted from Nigella Lawson's recipe in her cookbook "Feast." With onion, garlic, saffron, mint and pine nuts, you don't have to sacrifice flavor in this cold appetizer.
The recipes for appropriate hors d'oeuvres are nearly endless, but if you're diabetic, you might feel limited. This recipe for Pistachio Salmon Nuggets is a perfect example of how a festive appetizer can be both delicious and nutritious.
With the holiday season in full swing, you can expect to be invited to many festive gatherings. However, sometimes party food can make you put on some extra holiday weight, so it's important to choose your dishes wisely.
Hanukkah may be the celebration of light over darkness, purity over adulteration and spirituality over materiality, but it's also characterized by a certain substance - oil. Although oil is symbolically used in food during this holiday to represent the oil that miraculously burned for eight nights, those trying to have a happy and healthy Hanukkah might want to leave this for the menorah, not the frying pan.
