Hummus is the ultimate healthy snack: Chickpeas are packed with fiber and protein, and accompanied by a platter of crunchy veggies for dipping, you’re really getting double the nutritional value. Basically, if you’re looking to replace chips and salsa with a snack that actually benefits your body, you need to grab some hummus. There’s just one problem: Chickpeas can be a little boring (sorry), even with the addition of salt, olive oil, and a dash of lemon juice (double sorry).

I should also come clean and admit that I look forward to the time of year when it’s totally socially acceptable to make, and eat, an entire box of Pillsbury sugar cookies in one sitting.

Wait, Are Eggs Actually Good for You? Even Experts Can’t Agree.
The great breakfast debate has been raging for years: Are eggs, a nationwide breakfast staple, actually healthy? Eggs are protein-packed, but also high in cholesterol. And because many people eat them every morning for breakfast, it’s important to understand if eggs are helping or harming our health. In 2016, it seemed as though the debate had finally been settled: The suggested limit on dietary cholesterol in the U.S.

But it now seems like the coffee company might have started a trend: Today, Weight Watchers announced that the company will soon be known only by the initials WW (which is still a bit of a mouthful, if you say it out loud). The name change stems from the company’s attempts to distance itself from its reputation as a weight-loss program.
