This month has been chock full of nutrition news with increased attention on consumer health, given that it's Wise Consumer Health Month and given that the USDA just released its 2011 Dietary Guidelines.
Nutrition information in the media can be confusing, contradictory, and sometimes downright harmful. I'd like to offer the Delicious Health perspective on some of the recent buzz in my article this month, Dishing on the New 2011 USDA Dietary Guidelines.
If you recall from my last newsletter - I've been working on some changes around here. While I'm not ready yet to unveil anything yet, rest assured that what's coming is going to be delicious!!!
I would LOVE your input as I work hard to get this next wave of great programs ready for you. So I created a mini-survey WITH A GIFT to beg and cajole you for input. You can click here to take it. Everyone who completes the survey will receive a giveaway of their choice (you can indicate your preference in the survey).
This month's recipe is one of my new favorites that was the result of a pantry experiment: Sweet Cauliflower-Apple Soup. It's perfect for winter-into-spring as a detoxing soup for chilly weather that will fill you up with a hint of both sweet and savory goodness.
I hope you enjoy your Byte. If you change your mind, you may unsubscribe at any time by scrolling to the very bottom of this page and clicking on the unsubscribe link.

There's a wild party going on inside my head right now and I'd love for you to join me there...
So I created the mini Deliciously Curious Survey that I'd love your input on. And you get a gift to boot (what's a party without party favors??).

Dishing on the New 2011 USDA Dietary Guidelines
by Simla Somturk Wickless, MBA, CHC, CNE
The "official" USDA dietary guidelines, released as a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Agriculture ("USDA") and the Department of Health and Human Services, make a splash every five years when they are updated based on the most recent research. This past month was no exception.
February is also Wise Consumer Health Month, established by the American Institute for Preventive Medicine to teach people how to be more involved with their health care. The new 2011 USDA dietary guidelines offer a great starting point to talk about how you can become wiser with your own food choices and become an advocate for your own health.
Why? Because general guidelines - "official" or not - are not always the best advice for you personally.

Sweet Cauliflower-Apple "Winter Detox" Soup
This soup was another creation to manifest from one of my pantry experiments and it has quickly become a new favorite. I wanted to create a soup that was delicious, warming, easy. On top of that, my mission was to combine several vegetables that:
are often overlooked or under-appreciated
trigger a gentle yet robust detox response in the body
are seasonally appropriate, for winter
are ridiculously healthy
are scrumptiously delicious
While it looks complicated because of the number of ingredients, I promise you it'll be one of the easiest recipes you've ever prepared. You just throw it all into the largest pot you have and - voila! - delicious soup, enough to freeze extras for a busier, colder day!

Dance fitness is all the rage these days and whether that's good news or bad news depends on your feet - If you have two left ones, dance games like Zumba and Gold's Gym for Wii may not sound all that appealing. However, the good thing about these games is that they can help you have fun while burning calories and being more active. Also? You do them at home...by yourself...with the blinds closed...and only your pets to witness you making a fool of yourself.
I recently had dinner with several health-oriented people and we started talking about our weight, which, for the record, isn't the kind of dinner conversation the average person might enjoy. On the other hand, when you have dinner with trainers? You always order the salad...Read more
