About CSPI
Its award-winning newsletter, Nutrition Action Healthletter, with some 900,000 subscribers in the United States and Canada, is the largest-circulation health newsletter in North America.

Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry's powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.

Two Recipe Magazines and Sites I love!

Do you like to cook?  I do (or well I try)! :)  I have two more magazines that I love to get in the mail that have great fast, easy and (most of the time) healthy meals...or at least us Weight Watcher people know how to make them healtier by substituting ingredients and adding filling foods, such as veggies, whole grains, etc.

Try....

EatingWell.com

eatingwell_logo.pngPeggy wanted to share a healthy eating and recipe resource that she likes - www.eatingwell.com

*She found this resource through the HealthPartner's 10,000 steps walking program


For those of you on the UPlan...
uplan.jpgThat reminds me, don't forget to take your 2010 UPlan Wellness Survey (by April 30th) and earn $65, and also sign up for a Healthy Living Program to earn another $65!  Last year, I signed up for the "Get in Shape" Healthy Living Program and that was wonderful to do along side Weight Watchers.

Hungry-Girl.com - Another Great Weight Loss Resource!

Thumbnail image for hungry-girl-logo1.jpgI subscribe to the www.hungry-girl.com daily email newsletter.  She sends out great recipe, "eat this not that" ideas, etc.  Check it out!  She also has cookbooks available for purchase.

When I feel like I'm getting in a workout slump...I go in search of new routines or ideas!  Try out fitnessmagazine.com's site for ideas - like biking, running, walking, weights, swimming...you name it (plus they have healthy recipes!)!  I even subscribe to their email newsletters, which are very good :)

Kraftfoods.com - Another favorite Recipe Go-To!

I quite frequently use Kraftfoods.com to plan my meals and find new recipes.  They have a ton of what I call "real" recipes - using everyday ingredients!  I also have signed up for their email newsletter (and have a paid subscription to their beautiful printed "Food and Family" cookbook).  They even have an iPhone/iPod Touch and Blackberry app (99 cents) - for those that need ideas on the go (or for others with phones & data plans - view the mobile site)!

I also take their regular recipes and make them lighter - use light, fat-free or whole grains when possible.  With Weight Watchers e-tools, you can enter your own recipes into the "creating your own recipes" section, but many of the kraftfoods recipes already have nutrition facts on them too (note: if you start substituting ingredients you'll want to double check the points values).

There's lots of fun ideas, weekly meal planners, etc on this site! Explore it when you have some extra time.

A Great Weight Watcher's Recipe Blog

One of my favorite finds for Weight Watcher recipes is Gina's Weight Watcher Blog - Cooking up skinny recipes!  I've used (and subscribe via email to) this site to make many of my new favorite recipes, and her photos make them that much more enticing!

Check it out!
