Read the Labels

Avoid peanut butters that contain hydrogenated oils, which can increase your bad cholesterol and put you at greater risk for heart disease.

Reduce Food Waste

When using fresh, soft herbs such as cilantro or parsley, do not waste the stems! These stems have the same flavors as the leaves with added crunch. Stretch your food dollars by using the entire plant.
