Looking Good Whole grains are good for you in so many ways—they can even keep your skin healthy—but we don’t always know how to get them into our diets. According to a study published in Public Health Nutrition, consumers are often confused by whole-grain labels on bread, crackers and cereal. When comparing product labels, participants made mistakes identifying healthier products up to 47 percent of the time! Make sure you check the ingredients list, and look for the word “whole” before the grain instead of “enriched.” Dried Fruit Eaters Win Researchers from Penn State found in a study of more than 25,000 participants that people who eat dried fruit are generally healthier than those who don’t.

fake it till you make it

for a little over a decade, we’ve been running a column called “Piece of Cake,” featuring a cake that looks like something else. In the beginning the ideas were simple and straightforward: an oversize hamburger, a giant PB&J, a mega-taco. But in time they became much more…interesting.

In a recent study, participants in a maze were more likely to remember the location of high-calorie foods like brownies and potato chips than healthy snacks like apples and cherry tomatoes.
