We're teaming up with fellow food bloggers and healthy eating advocates to host a Healthy Every Week Challenge, a month-long initiative to develop healthy eating habits. The plan an is to develop a manageable healthy habit each week that will carry through the new year. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #gethealthy.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that at least half of all the grains you eat are whole grains. I know what you're thinking, but adding more whole grains to your diet doesn't have to be boring. Barley, farro, kamut, polenta and wheat berries are just a few of the grains highlighted in Ancient Grains for Modern Meals.

Author Maria Speck puts a Mediterranean spin on 100 recipes that utilize quick-cooking grains in both sweet and savory dishes. With an easy-to-follow introduction and cooking guide, even the most novice of chefs can master couscous, brown rice and quinoa. Recipes like Brie Cakes With Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spelt Crust Pizza With Fennel, Prosciutto and Apples and Lamb Burgers With Bulgur and Mint will have you returning to this cookbook again and again.
