Know that no matter what you wear, what you eat, and which cleanse you're on, you're no better than anyone else in the world who doesn't subscribe to your food value system.

Small seeds that pack big nutrition have turned out to be the latest nourishing must-haves.

Turkey is a must during the holiday season. Whether you cook your own roasted turkey or buy one precooked (please no Butterball!), there's always the issue of what type of stuffing to serve.

Thank goodness there is more to talk about than Rob Ford and Miley this week -- I refuse to give either one of them air time (even though I just did, right there).

I'm sometimes known as the Queen of Quinoa for my healthy eating habits.

Oh, and I was also inhaling a side of fries.
