Handle with Care  Treat seeds right to get the most nutrients:  Buy raw seeds so you can control the toasting temperature; high temps used at commercial plants destroy nutrients.  Toast seeds to bring out their flavor: Roast at 375°F, stirring often to prevent burning, until golden brown.  Store in an airtight container out of sunlight. Refrigerate seeds you aren't able to use within two months.

Seeds are a small bur powerful food that add protein and vitamins to any meal. Check out the best seeds (and their pairings) to add to any meal.

5 Foods to Boost Your Spring Detox

Purple and Red Grapes  Grapes—especially the darker colored variety—burst not only with flavor, but also with health benefits. They’re full of antioxidants and enzymes that can protect you from serious health conditions including heart disease and cancer. Additionally, a compound in grapes called resveratrol has been linked to the upkeep of strong blood vessels, breast cancer prevention, and blood sugar regulation. Be sure to munch on the fruit rather than sip it in juice form—you’ll get a higher dose of wait-slimming fiber and will avoid taking in added sugar.  Image: Thinkstock

As the weather changes, chances are you’ll be reassessing your diet and steering away from heavy winter foods. Check out these light spring options to help boost your energy this spring!

11 Foods That End Bad Moods


Diet, Food, Health, Lifestyle | April 24, 2012

Mood-Boosting Food #8: Honey  Honey, unlike table sugar, is packed with beneficial compounds like quercetin and kaempferol that reduce inflammation, keeping your brain healthy and warding off depression. Honey also has a less dramatic impact on your blood-sugar levels than regular sugar, so it won't send your body into fat-storage mode the way the white stuff can. Try adding some honey to your afternoon tea or morning bowl of oatmeal, but don't go overboard; the sweet nectar has 17 g of sugar and 64 calories per tablespoon, so too much honey can make you heavy, rather than happy.

Gents: Socks or Sock-less?

Daily by Morin Men's Socks

Although Spring/Summer is a time to traditionally ditch socks, you can’t help notice the current sock trend. Wearing a great pair of socks seems to be the easiest and cost effective way to separate you from others. I suggest trying them with cuffed pants or letting them be seen while sitting. The possibilities are endless and more and more companies are offering pairs with cool designs.

Pomegranate juice  A popular drink for decades in the Middle East, pomegranate juice has become widely available only recently in the United States.  Why it's healthy: Israeli scientists discovered that men who downed just 2 ounces of pomegranate juice daily for a year decreased their systolic (top number) blood pressure by 21 percent and significantly improved bloodflow to their hearts. What's more, 4 ounces provides 50 percent of your daily vitamin C needs.   Image: Thinkstock
