Health Buzz: Lunchables and Booty Workouts

Health news from around the web for January 12, 2012.

Health Buzz is a weekly news show that brings you the best diet, fitness and health stories. This week, we're looking at an unhealthy trend in kid's food, sharing advice on how to pick a personal trainer and we have a delicious recipe for a 100-calorie pizza.

Lunchables Are Nasty -- But the Message to Kids In Worse

Michael F. Jacobson, the Executive Director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, takes on Oscar Mayer's Lunchables. The nutritional profile of these highly processed kids' lunches is so poor he calls them "Trashables," but what's even worse is the message they send.

Ask Mary: Is taking a daily multivitamin worth it?

In this week's segment of Ask Mary, our registered dietitian Mary Hartley answers a reader's question about daily multivitamins. Mary says that you probably don't need a multivitamin unless you're dieting. In that case, a multivitamin can be good insurance against nutritional deficiencies while you lose weight. Just be sure to not exceed the daily recommended value.

Portobello Mushroom Mini Pizzas

Sometimes, the only thing that will really hit the spot is pizza, but that doesn't mean you have to ditch your diet! We love this recipe for 100-calorie mini pizzas. This little pie is made on a portobello mushroom cap, which adds a meaty texture without the carbs (or gluten). Top each cap with the cheese and tomato sauce combo of your choice, bake it, and enjoy.
