Why would you have plain old sweet-potato fries when you can wrap them in bacon? This recipe calls for just two ingredients: sweet potatoes and bacon. The only trick is twirling the bacon around the sweet potato fries, but it's pretty darn easy. What you end up with is a surprisingly attractive party hors d'oeuvre (if you don't devour them all yourself, of course).  


To serve: Soak the blade of a thin knife in a cup of very hot water until warm. Slide the knife around the sides of the pan to release the cake. Place a piece of wax paper on top of the cake. Invert a plate over the wax paper and invert the pan onto the plate. Remove the pan and peel away the paper liner. Place a serving plate over the cake and turn the cake right-side up again; remove the wax paper. Dip a sharp knife in hot water and wipe it dry before cutting each slice. Serve with Candied Orange Peel, if desired.

Don't feel guilty if you need your daily chocolate fix. Dark chocolate that is 70 to 85 percent cacao offers around 90 calories per half-ounce serving. In 2011, Boston-based researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital conducted a review of the benefits of dark chocolate. Published in the "European Journal of Clinical Nutrition," the study reported that consuming dark chocolate on a daily basis for two to 12 weeks improves blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or LDL cholesterol. This is the harmful cholesterol that hardens arteries and increases your risk of heart disease. Although dark chocolate can be beneficial for your heart, keep your serving size to a half-ounce to avoid consuming a high amount of calories.

Oh well. From September, tourists in LA will be invited to marvel at these greasy artefacts of a more ignorant time, when humans ate what they wanted to eat, regardless of how processed or sugary it was, or if it was classed as “clean”, or whether its calories were “empty” or if it was presented in a cartoon-charactered tin. Before the complexities of food, and comfort, and class, were boiled down to good and bad, and then liberally distributed through supermarkets and Facebook, like a sprinkling of fine table salt.

Dr. Jen is hopeful that at some point terms like “guilt-free” will be destigmatized. “Being overweight is linked with low self-esteem, so as our culture slowly shifts from viewing overweight as a problem of lack of motivation, willpower and self-discipline, and rather a symptom of distress and possibly poor mental health, I believe a more compassionate stance will emerge,” she said.
If junk foods are “bad,” it’s human nature to try to make them good so we can continue to enjoy them without remorse. That’s where the whole guilt-free movement comes from — it’s supposed to give us permission to indulge. But it’s based on lies. The reality is that no magic wand can turn sugar and trans fat into health food, and it shouldn’t have to. It’s okay to have a treat once in a while.
17. Heavenly Blueberry and Cream Dessert: Heavenly is the absolute right word to describe this dessert. Use a store-bought angel food cake to save yourself some time and layer it with homemade whipped cream and fresh blueberries. Stick the completed trifle in the fridge and try to distract yourself for the next two hours while it chills. (via Mel’s Kitchen Cafe)
It’s a while since I ate a burger, but there they were, nonchalant and fast on Oxford Street, so I slid into a booth and took a bite. And oh God it was fantastic. Rich and salty, a nostalgic ooze, the vivid memory of being eight years old and delighted, and yet, as I swooned into this moment of pleasure, I was conscious of having to trample a familiar guilt. As well as the guilt about eating meat, there was a whole lasagne of additional guilts, layered one on top of the other and softened with a rich white sauce.

The goal is not to demonize any kind of food. There is nothing wrong with a cookie or a piece of pizza. However, it is important to be mindful of how much and how often we eat certain foods. Seek balance and practice moderation. Remember that food is necessary for both nourishment and enjoyment. Work on not only having a healthy body, but also on having a healthy relationship with yourself and with food.
