What We’re Reading This Week

Posted August 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm Source By WH This Just In

Raw Goodness Alert! Although a lot of us tend to cook our vegetables, raw veggies tend to have more nutrients and enzymes. Ok, maybe that was old news, but still...we think this raw broccoli salad is the perfect way to get those 5 servings a day. The Stone Soup

Hot, Hot Heat If you feel like all this summer heat is making you crazy, you may be right. New studies show that the higher the temps, the more likely it is you’ll suffer heatstroke, and the more irritable and violent you can become. One more reason to bask in the AC. Via Slate

Corn on the Grill What says summer better than corn on the cob? This year, skip the traditional butter and salt toppings in favor of these mouthwatering combinations. Get schucking! Curry, honey, and cayenne? Oregano, basil, and garlic? Yum! Via Edible Perspective

By The Bite Your days of counting cals by hand could be over! A new pedometer-esque gadget measures number of bites taken and even calories per bite. Motivated to slim down? One setting sounds an alert when you’ve maxed out for the day. Via Healthland

I Scream For...Froyo? If you're craving that childhood comfort of an ice-cream sandwich try a frozen yogurt sandwich! As this blogger says, it's lighter than its ice cream counterpart, which is better for the swimsuit season! Via The Galley Gourmet

Diet Mishap Newsflash: dieting can make your brain cells eat themselves. Disgusting visual, right? Researchers say skimping on meals causes hunger-inducing neurons to literally eat themselves away and crank up your appetite. Via LA Times
