Trying to be healthy can be overwhelming, if not outright maddening. There's a ton of conflicting information out there, and recommendations seem to change faster than Usain Bolt can run 100 meters. Every week seems to bring new research claiming that what was considered to be bad for us is actually good — and that what was considered good is, in fact, not good at all. 

It can be crazy-making, and for those of us who aren't professional nutritionists, it's hard to get a good sense of what's genuinely healthy, what's just hype, and what we should avoid. Luckily, there are some excellent resources and research are out there to help all of us — in the words of Jamie Lee Curtis' character in Freaky Friday — make good choices.
