Simple swaps for serious flavor
From burgers to barbecued chicken, many of the best grilled foods are served with creamy condiments - often packing on calories and fat. Next time you're ready to grill, experiment with new ways to create simple but robust flavors using fewer ingredients through simple swaps.
Rice vinegars offer a healthy alternative to condiments like mayonnaise or a creamy dressing when grilling. Keeping meals simple is easy with naturally gluten-free Nakano Rice Vinegar, which includes six or less simple ingredients with no artificial preservatives, flavors or ingredients, and no high-fructose corn syrup or MSG. The brand recently announced a clean-labeling initiative for all of its products, which now have easy-to-read labels with recognizable ingredients.

Transported by taste
Ripe vegetables, fresh herbs and fragrant spices all lend vibrant, bold flavors to mouthwatering meals that are worth lingering over with friends. This is what Mediterranean cooking is all about.
Add some Mediter-ranean inspiration to your everyday meals with these recipes using Crisco olive oils to help you turn an ordinary meal into a memorable one.
Use extra virgin olive oil to add a full-bodied flavor to salads, vegetables and meats. Pure olive oil offers a mild, subtle olive flavor with a hint of fruit to sautes and stir-fries. Light tasting olive oil is ideal as an all-purpose cooking oil that can be used for sauteing, roasting vegetables or in baked goods like muffins, cakes and brownies.

Smart eats for summer
Whether hitting the road for a vacation, enjoying the great outdoors and warm weather or simply spending time with family and friends, your summer schedule is likely anything but slow. An on-the-go summer lifestyle requires energy, and portable meals and in-season ingredients are keys to a healthy eating strategy that can power you through the season.
You can start by identifying foods that will keep you satisfied and energetic - and foods that are low in carbohydrates are a perfect fit. If you are looking for recipes and tips, Atkins is a good place to turn to as it offers a balanced diet, with reduced levels of refined carbohydrates and added sugars, and is rich in protein, fiber, fruits, vegetables and good fats.
