Expert Tips

  • “Twice a week, I take an exercise class, and I also go dancing once or twice a week. That burns off calories and keeps me in shape—it is also a lot of fun.” Wanda S.
  • Nuts and seeds are great little gems because they contain so many nutrients, but adding them in moderation is best because they are high in fat. Fortunately, a little goes a long way in terms of flavor, and if nuts and seeds are lightly toasted, they become flavor giants!
