You can always count on frozen french fries to bring a bit of the restaurant experience into your home kitchen. Crispy and crunchy, these taters are an easy side dish for burgers, chicken, sandwiches, and more. Even better: many frozen fry brands are actually relatively healthy, with short ingredient lists and options for baking or air frying instead of frying in grease. As a nutritionist, I’m not ashamed to admit that I make some brands of frozen fries for my […]

It is nothing short of a miracle that those of us who lived through the fat-free and low-fat diet recommendations that were firmly in place by the 1990s made it to the age we are today with any measurable level of health.  Regarded by many modern nutritionists as the worst dietary experiment to ever befall the American people, the low-fat craze began around 1976 when the late South Dakota Senator George McGovern believed there to be a link between the American diet […]

Eli Betchik has always had a stomach of steel, but it wasn’t until they went to art school that they realized it could make them famous. “I was perfectly willing to eat random things for the entertainment of my friends.

For anyone over the age of 25, TikTok is a baffling world of moronic dance routines and teenagers lip-syncing to each other’s conversations. Yet it’s also a hotbed of authentic culinary creativity. Dalgona coffee, cloud bread, feta pasta, the tortilla folding hack, hot chocolate bombs – these crossover food trends all gained popularity on the platform, and they are only the tip of the iceberg lettuce. But what makes certain dishes go viral, and are any of them any good? […]

Be honest with yourself—how many times have you looked at a packaged food in the store that claims to be healthy, only to find out from the nutrition label that it’s anything but? It can be easy to market food as “low-fat” or “no sugar added” yet still have an obscene amount of sugar, sodium, and calories stuffed into it. This is the motivation behind the Food Compass, a recent nutrient profiling system from researchers at Tufts University that puts […]

The keto diet is a low carb, high fat diet often used to promote weight loss. The diet traditionally limits carbohydrate intake to less than 50 grams per day to maintain ketosis, a state in which your body uses fat instead of carbohydrates as its main fuel source. For that reason, certain foods are better suited for the keto diet than others. In particular, cheese is an ideal keto food due to its high fat, moderate protein, and low carb […]
