Is There a Best Time of Day to Eat?

There are so many diets and opinions on how we all eat that sometimes it can feel dizzying - eat more meat! be a vegan! stay in ketosis! - but typically we assume that the diet is mostly about the actual food.

Now we apparently have to contend with when we eat. But if the thought makes you want to throw out the diet books, you might want to wait until you hear from Dr’s Michael Roizen and Michael Crupain, the authors of What to Eat When..

You can’t help but want to listen when these two docs start talking. Dr Roizen is the Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Crupain is the Medical Director of the Dr. Oz Show - but more importantly once you see them in person you know these are two guys that don’t want to take all of the fun out of your life!

Can We Call This the Perfect Party Cocktail?

I love cocktails but I am not usually a big fan of cocktail books. I don't want to buy 3 new liquers and a set of bitters just to make one drink. So I can't tell you how happy I was to see Maggie Hoffman's The One Bottle Cocktail. The entire premise eliminates your fear of cocktails in that it centers on the idea of only one spirit.
