Why Do We Eat Eggs for Breakfast?

Poached or scrambled, fried or boiled, tenderly Instagrammed or inhaled via McMuffin, eggs are the undisputed workhorse of the American breakfast. As a kid who wouldn’t touch them—the smell alone made me gag—I spent a lot of time bitterly contemplating this fact while cobbling together strange restaurant meals from the forlorn “sides” section of the menu. Collegiate poverty would eventually cure me of my childish aversion, and I now eat eggs in all forms, but I still wonder sometimes about their automatic association with morning appetites.

You Won't Miss the Noodles in This Low-Carb Cauliflower Mac 'n' Cheese

"With this low-carb recipe, missing macaroni and cheese has become a thing of the past." This bold statement caught my eye while flipping through a copy of The Everything Low-Carb Meal Prep Cookbook ($20; amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, simonandschuster.com) that recently made its way across my desk. I'm not particularly low-carb myself (I'm eating pretzels and dessert hummus while I write this), but my partner has celiac disease, so we do miss sharing a certain kind of (gluten-full) mac and cheese. While it seems everyone who has adopted any one of the latest trendy low-carb diets–keto, paleo, Atkins, you name it–has fallen head over heals

A Colorful Lemon-Tahini Veggie Slaw You Can Make Now and Enjoy for Days

You've probably never longingly eyed the mound of cabbages in the produce aisle, sitting, as they do, alongside showier, more colorful vegetables. But it might be time to give the humble cabbage a second look. Like other cruciferous veggies (such as broccoli, cauliflower, collards, and kale), cabbage is rich in glucosinolates. These sulfur-containing compounds are thought to play a role in the potential anticancer effects linked to the cruciferous family. Moreover, one cup of chopped cabbage provides 85% of your daily value of vitamin K, more than 40% of your daily value of vitamin C, and plenty of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, folate, manganese, and plant-based omega-3 fatty
