This site "healthifies" recipes to make them lower in fat, sugar and calories. They also have weight management tips, 30-minute meals, coupons and a community where you can connect with other people to share your healthy eating tips and goals.
Remember that old food pyramid you learned about in school? Fugetaboutit! Today you can customize your own food pyramid with the interactive tools on this official government website.
