Zucchini pie isn't the kind of thing you eat once and then forget. With golden brown crust, bits of salty cheese, aromatic onions, and the star player --- farm fresh zucchini for fiber and flavor. One piece in and you'll be asking yourself where zucchini pie has been a...

To understand what happens in your body when you drink, consider this: since alcohol is a diuretic, it causes massive dehydration in your body, causing you to feel sick. It does this by suppressing a hormone that helps you to recycle water released by your kidneys.

If you are an athlete subscribed to a vegetarian or vegan diet, you want to incorporate high-energy foods into your meals and snacks. Nuts, heart-healthy oils, and dried fruits are great choices. Also, you want to make sure that you’re eating enough protein-rich foods...

The problem is, refined sugars are everywhere--and if you have a sweet tooth, it could be hard for you to limit your consumption. Restaurants and cafe’s use them in most of their treats, and they can be found in all sorts of processed foods at the grocery store--especi...
