HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS OPTIONS
Dr. Susan Mitchell

We know, we know -- nachos and pizza are as much a part of the Superbowl as anything that happens on the football field. But you don't have to give up all the goodies to have fun and avoid the other kind of Superbowl spread (we're not talking about the points in the game here, people). From hummus with a twist to buffalo chicken bites, Dr. Mitchell has rounded up all of her and her colleagues' favorite foods for Super Sunday.

PLANTS, NOT PROCESSED
Growing Bolder Radio

Small steps add up to big health benefits, and more and more Americans are trading in processed foods for plant-based diets. Not only can it help you drop a few pounds, but one of the pioneers of natural and integrative medicine says that it can even help you avoid serious and chronic inflammation. Dr. Andrew Weil talks to Growing Bolder about his new line of restaurants, a cookbook designed to make eating healthy both easy and delicious, and why he thinks so many people push back against giving up the junk.

SWEET TREATS

Make sure you're prepared for the sweetest holiday of the year -- Valentine's Day! If you're a chocoholic, you may think you have to give up your favorite treats. But Dr. Mitchell has some easy tips for picking the best (and best for you) candies. Plus, do espresso crepes with chocolate sauce sound good? See that recipe and more delicious but not-so-decadent ideas for the 14th here.

 
"THE BEST YEARS ARE STILL AHEAD"

One of the biggest names in basketball says not only does life start getting great at 70, we all need to prepare for a happy and healthy 100 years. NBA Executive, father and motivational speaker Pat Williams not only talks the talk, he walks the walk. Even on his sickest days while battling bone cancer, Williams never gives up, working out in his home gym, reading (and writing!) books and eating well. See why he thinks now is the time to commit to healthy living.
