What’s for dinner? A healthy chili to kick off your fall cooking
 We all know how Texans feel about beans in chili, and we all know how bean-lovers feel about beans in chili.

Recipe of the Week: A keto-friendly coconut veggie stir-fry
 The keto diet is similar to the Atkins diet, but its roots go back even further into dietetics history. In the 1920s, scientists theorized that a high-fat, low-carb diet might help children with epilepsy.
