This Portable Oven Makes Pizza In 60 Seconds

  This Portable Oven Makes Pizza In 60 Seconds It's the kind of pie that'd make Nonna proud.Pizza that cooks in a minute flat probably conjures images of Totino's Party Pizzas and other toaster-oven wonders - which work for the Chuck E. Cheese (or late-night, post-drinking) crowd - but when you're craving something a little fancier, it doesn't cut it. That's why it's easy to overlook Uuni's portable pizza oven. It claims to cook a wood-fired, nonna-worthy pie in 60 seconds flat - and understandably, that seems too good to be true.

Winter months are a prime time to stock up on appetizers. Between holiday parties, New Years celebrations, and football games, everyone is coming over for something to drink and definitely something delicious to eat.

But don’t head to Target and start tossing bags of frozen appetizers in your shopping cart just yet. We outlined exactly how much you’ll save nutritionally by making your own. It’ll take a little extra time, but not much. And it’s totally worth it.

Archer Farms Mini Crab Cakes Maryland-Style

Swap For: Mini Crab Cakes with Pickled Celery

These fishy bites will truly get the party started. For a serving of two cakes, you’ll save 95 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Ramen Noodles Made Healthy

  Ramen Noodles Made Healthy Ah, ramen, the stereotypical staple of every college kid's diet. For the average college student like you and me, ramen definitely brings the goods: it's cheap, quick to fix, and oh so delicious. But nutritious? Nah. While ramen noodles might seem like the perfect mealtime choice in theory, every student knows they probably aren't the wisest diet choice when it comes to nutrition. But what if things didn't have to be that way? What if ramen noodles could be delicious and *gasp* more nutritious? You read that right, my friends. It's time to make some noodles that even your momma would be proud of.

Market Pantry Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Our Swap: Baked Mozzarella Bites

It’s amazing what part-skim mozzarella sticks and an oven can do for this classic app. In a serving of three pieces, you’ll save 109 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 448 mg of sodium. Pass the marinara, please!

We Tried Welch’s Frozen Avocados. Here’s What You Need to Know

  We Tried Welch’s Frozen Avocados. Here’s What You Need to Know Should you start buying avocados from the freezer aisle? When first examining this product, I was excited for a number of reasons. The packaging promised perfectly ripe avocados—something that's certainly a feat to find fresh—that are hand-cut. Ordinarily, fresh avocados have a small window for ripeness. Wait a day too long, and the firm green flesh turns a mushy brown. Also, a ready-peeled avocado means less time prepping! (Or so I thought.

Top Ramen Is Changing Its Recipe to Be Healthier

  Top Ramen Is Changing Its Recipe to Be Healthier <p>The announcement was made today in conjunction with National Noodle Day.</p>Few foods are as synonymous with a cheap meal as Top Ramen. The colorful rectangular packs that often sell four for a dollar regularly get joked about as a college staple. But Nissin Foods, the people behind Top Ramen and the original inventor of instant noodles back in 1958, wants customers to know that just because Top Ramen is inexpensive doesn't mean the company doesn't care about its ingredients—so Nissan is making some hopefully beneficial tweaks to the brand similar to what it did with Cup Noodles last year.

Market Pantry Crispy Potato Puffs

Swap For: Cheesy Cauliflower Biscuits

Totino’s Pizza Rolls Pepperoni

Swap For: Mini-Mozzarella-and-Kale Pizzas

At first glance six of these pizza rolls are slightly lower in calories than three of our mini pizzas, but here’s why we recommend our version: The whole wheat pitas, baby kale, reduced-fat cheese, and cherry tomatoes give you 5 grams of fiber plus 8 grams more protein. That means it will feel way more satiating—so less grazing after.

You agreed to bring a homemade pumpkin pie to your family dinner but one thing led to another and you’re currently pie-less.</p>Pumpkin pie is a staple at every modern Thanksgiving celebration. But, the pilgrims who sat down to the first Thanksgiving dinner didn’t actually indulge in pumpkin pie.
