Need a quick snack? Nibble on a nut. Though nuts are a higher-fat food, the fat they contain is mostly heart-healthy unsaturated fat and might help reduce levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL or “bad” cholesterol).  The fat, protein and fiber in nuts help you feel full longer, so you might eat less during the day. By helping induce a feeling of fullness, nuts might help you feel less deprived and not like you are “dieting.” Just limit your portion.  Divide a container of nuts into small snack bags for easy snacking at home, the office or on the road.

Family life offers its share of joys and challenges. Some responsibilities - like the need to feed the family each day - can fall into both categories. Grocery shopping and meal preparation take time and energy. Adults may be able to get by with skipping an occasional meal or eating a late dinner, but children have small stomachs. They need regular meals and supplemental snacks. Eating a variety of foods is important for adults who want to maintain health and have the energy to make the most of each day, and more so for children, who, in addition to energy needed to fuel their activities, need essential vitamins and minerals for growth and development.

Twenty years ago, determining whether a firefighter might need food and drink while battling a blaze generating temperatures up to 1,000 degrees was usually an afterthought, fire officials said. Firefighters would sometimes get relief in the form of a coffee or food wagon, but the care for fire crews was not close to what it is today, fire officials said. When a so-called "working structure fire" is dispatched these days, so is Rehab 255, a unit that fills a variety of needs for firefighters, from periodic medical checkups at a fire scene to providing cooling chairs in stifling heat.

Botanically, asparagus is a member of the lily family, closely related to onions and leeks, though it bears no resemblance to them in appearance or flavor. Asparagus comes in a variety of colors including white, violet-green, pink and purple. Asparagus is a nutrient-dense food, which in high in folic acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin.

When it comes to popcorn, more people are thinking outside the microwave bag. "There has been a renewed interest in stove-top popping," said Wendy Boersema-Rappel, spokeswoman for The Popcorn Board, a non-profit Chicago-based trade group. People also are soothing their popcorn fixes at specialty shops. "It might be the fastest growing segment in the popcorn business," said Bryan Casey, who co-owns Catoctin Kettle Corn in Frederick, Md., with his wife. Casey said his business has steadily grown since it opened in 2001, thanks to people who were seeking something other than the microwave-popped variety.

The most popular use of pumpkins might be for jack-o'-lanterns and fall decorations, but there is much more to a pumpkin than its looks. When eaten, pumpkin provides vitamin A, potassium, protein and vitamin C. Pumpkin is also low in calories. When choosing a pumpkin for cooking, choose a small pumpkin that weighs between 2 and 6 pounds. Look for one that has one or two inches of stem left. Pumpkins with shorter stems decay more quickly. Choose a pumpkin that has a rich orange color with skin that cannot be easily broken or scratched by your fingernail.
