Ranch dressing revisited

Ranch is often offered to children along with cut-up vegetables or baby carrots. Like the spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down, the ranch dip makes vegetables more palatable to kids who might otherwise shun them. But full-fat ranch is high in fat and calories, and reduced-fat versions are packed with sodium. Is it really such a great idea to induce kids to eat vegetables by loading those carrot sticks with such nutrition-unfriendly glop?

Is that right? La Creme: 100% dairy, 0% shame

I don't have a horse in this race, as I don't see why anyone would dump creamer of any kind into a perfectly good cup of black coffee.

Ranch dressing rules

For better or worse, ranch dressing is the most popular salad dressing in America. As I write in this week's "Eat, Drink and Be Healthy" column, it has overtaken Italian dressing as our dressing of choice, both at the store and at restaurants.

Is that right? White bread versus whole wheat -- again

As I wrote in this week's "Eat, Drink and Be Healthy" column, the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 suggest that we increase our intake of whole grains by allowing those more healthful grains to elbow out the refined grains -- like white bread -- we consume in overabundance. Turns out that notion is hardly a new one.

Why do women hate their bodies so much?

I just read an unsettling article in Glamour that said 97 percent of 300 young women surveyed by the magazine reported having multiple negative thoughts about their own bodies in a given day. The average number was 13; many women said they had as many as 35, 50 or 100 such thoughts per day. So I'm sitting here thinking mean thoughts about my thighs and wondering, why do we do this to ourselves?

Survey your cereal

In this week's "Eat, Drink and Be Healthy" column I offer tips for adding more whole grains to your diet. The new Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 want at least half the grains we eat in a day to be whole, not refined. Hardly any of us come anywhere close to meeting that goal, though: While the USDA says less than 5 percent of us consume those three daily servings of whole grains, we somehow manage to eat twice as many servings of refined grains as we should.
