Right now we're in the midst of National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time for us to celebrate our culture's rich sense of community, music, art and flavor. As with any culture, so much of our history and sense of togetherness centers on our food.
Banana bread is a traditional favorite, and I love to bake it during the holidays. By substituting agave nectar for sugar and applesauce for oil, you can enjoy this sweet treat with less sugar, less fat -- and no guilt.
We are a culture obsessed with beauty and youth, yet many of us create an environment within our bodies that is counterproductive to achieving healthy beauty. To achieve beauty, you must first define what it means to you.
