Introducing a New 10-Part Series: What About the ___ Diet?

Over the next 10 weeks, I will focus on one popular diet and explain what the diet entails and recommends. I will then explain why following each of those diets will not improve one's health in the long-run. 

Here is a preview of the 10 different diets I will discuss in the coming weeks:

1. Standard American Diet (S.A.D.)
2. Atkins
3. South Beach
4. Nutrisystem
5. Weight Watchers
6. Vegetarian
7. Vegan
8. Raw Foods
9. Mediterranean
10. Paleo

So What CAN You Eat, Round 2

I'm not only back from Alaska, but I'm back to show you several more yummy and healthy meals that we have had the pleasure of eating. Several of these dishes were created on the fly with ingredients we had on hand - I think all the Masterchef episodes we've been watching have inspired us to be more chef-like at home. :)
