8 piggy banks to help you save up for your favorite foods

If you're a lover of food, you probably spend most of your money on meals — whether it's your fondness for the taco truck, your penchant for fancy cocktails, or your desire to eat at the newest, hottest restaurants.
Why not save up by using one of these appropriately food-themed piggy banks?

6 ways to save when shopping at whole foods

After college I worked as a cashier at the small Whole Foods in Durham, NC, and ever since I've had a soft spot for the brand. In fact, wherever I've lived I've gone out of my way to shop at Whole Foods. When I lived in Harlem, for example, I would take the subway down to the mega store at Columbus Circle. And now I drive an hour each way to the store in Des Moines to stock up on staples that I can't find — or can only find for more money — in my small town.
But even though I'm a fan of Whole Foods, I'm well aware that it's possible to spend your entire paycheck if you're not careful. That's why when I shop I'm strategic, restrained, and focused — and I actually manage to save big.
Here's how I do it.

10 things that are (much) cheaper at 365 than whole foods

The 365 by Whole Foods Market stores are billed as a lower-price version of the mother store, but how much will you really save? I decided to investigate. On the same day in February, I checked the prices of items in regular rotation on my grocery list at the 365 by Whole Foods in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles and an old-school Whole Foods seven miles away in Glendale, CA.
Here's what I found out.
How 365 by Whole Foods Compares to Whole Foods
Almost all items were less expensive at 365 — some amazingly so. (Scroll down for my top 10 picks to buy at 365).
Other essentials were the same or within 10 cents of each. Store-brand extra-virgin olive oil, was $9.99 both places, for example; a six pack of Hefeweizen by local brewery Golden Road was also the same at $8.99; the ro

presstv-iranian govt. resolved to curb gm food

GM foods have made their ways into Iran; however, like some other countries which have banned the use of these products, Iranian authorities are supporting organic foods against GM ones.With regard to the growth of population in the world, production of GM foods have seen a considerable hike inasmuch as Iran like others have started harvesting GM products. This is at a time though many opposing voices have risen against it recently arguing that GM foods cause many diseases. There are some scientists that don't believe in such claims. Many sciences and industry leaders argue GM foods are actually good for us and there has been no serious case to prove otherwise. They believe the benefits of GM crops have outweighed the potential health risks, which so far remain theoretical. There are many

i went to whole foods' new cheaper store and here's what i learned

You know that joke about how Whole Foods should be called Whole Paycheck? It seems the corporate poobahs have heard it, too. This year, the company plans to roll out more of their new lower-price-point supermarkets called 365 by Whole Foods Market.
Sound familiar? Whole Foods' longstanding, dependable house label 365 Everyday Value is the centerpiece of these stores, which promise to be an economic alternative while adhering to Whole Foods' ideals of hormone- and antibiotic-free meat and milk; no hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives; cage-free eggs; and sustainably caught fish.
I shopped at the 365 in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, one of three existing stores (the others in are Bellevue Square, Washington, and Lake Oswego, Oregon) to

100 super healthy and filling foods

You know the basics of a healthy diet: lots of fruit and vegetables, some nuts and seeds, full-fat dairy, and a few servings of fish and lean meat. Of course, most of us don't always abide by those rules, our food choices guided by cravings or hunger instead of proper planning.That's why we compiled a list of 100 of the most satisfying, hunger-quelling foods that are also easy to find at a grocery store (and taste great, of course). We’ve also provided our favorite ways to eat them, and recipes from our friends at Cooking Light and Food & Wine. Most importantly, we got rid of some of the guesswork behind determining if a food is filling and healthy, and provided tips for how to identify these foods on your own (hint, look for fiber, not just protein).Sure, 100 foods is a lot of options, bu

10 most addictive foods and how to stop eating them

Molly Cranna for TIME It’s not your imagination. There are foods that give you such a rush of pleasure from the very first bite that your brain screams for more—making it very hard to stop eating them once you start. That’s because they’ve been engineered with the right combination of refined carbohydrates like white flour and sugar and added fat to deliver a big glycemic load—a rush of blood sugar into your system, which triggers your brain’s reward center and makes you want more. In a recent study, food addiction researcher Nicole Avena, PhD, identified the most addictive foods. Unsurprisingly, the ones that top the list are highly processed and have more sugar and fat per bite, with far less fiber to slow down digestion, than unprocessed foods found in nature.Do you need to avoid addict

a sneaky way to get your kids to try new foods

Kids think it's funny to mess with adults. It's just the way of the world. They think it's hysterical to prank call their parents, hide their grandparents' remote controls, and hide from the teacher during roll call. They also think it's adorable to not try new foods at the dinner table that they will willingly eat at the cafeteria at lunch.
So, how are you supposed to get your kids to eat new things? I have a slightly sneaky way that actually works.
Get Your Kids to Eat New Foods by Throwing a Peer Pressure Party
No wait, I'm being serious! This "theory" isn't studied or consistent enough to be a science and it's not elevated enough to be an art. But I think peer pressure often has an upside when it comes to kids trying new foods.
So why does peer pressure work? Is it that it's more

i avoided all these foods while pregnant. was it worth it?

I found out I was pregnant while on vacation in Maine. Before dinner. So I didn't order the raw steamers I was dreaming of. Or have coffee the next morning at breakfast. It was just the beginning.
The following 39 weeks and five days until my son was born was a minefield of avoiding foods and drinks I loved. My previous "devil may care" attitude was a thing of the past, especially with an OBGYN who cautioned me away from unpasteurized cheese and juices, any alcohol, and rare hamburgers.
There is a lot of information out there about what is safe when a woman is pregnant (and it seems like it's always changing), and what the mother eats is up to her and her physician. The foods I abstained from came from discussions between me and my doctor. That could totally be different for you.

bloody, meatless impossible burger will soon be easier to find

The company says that it will expand availability of the Impossible Burger to 1,000 restaurants before the end of the year. It's able to do so thanks to a massive new factory in Oakland, California with the goal of producing a million pounds of the meat over the course of each month. Impossible Foods says the new facility will reach peak production status before 2018 rolls around.The concept isn't meant to just give vegans and vegetarians an option that's more like the real thing. Impossible Foods is also hoping that its burger will entice carnivores as well due to added health benefits and the fact that it's more environmentally friendly to produce. The company explains that not only does the process use less water and land, but it also cuts down on overall greenhouse gas emissions.Imposs

s&p 500 could reach 2600, says bank of america's keith banks

The S&P 500 Index could reach 2600 as the global economy improves and corporate earnings climb, said Keith Banks, president of Bank of America's US Trust unit."It's natural to get nervous when you've seen the run that we've seen, but what I would bring things back to are underlying fundamentals," Banks said on Friday (Saturday AEDT) in an interview on Bloomberg Television. "We're in the midst of a globally synchronous recovery. It's been a while since we've seen all the cylinders firing at the same time, and they are."

5 money-saving tips from a coupon clipper

If you've ever seen that coupon-based reality TV show, you know that couponers can do some crazy stuff. I wasn't — and am not — one of those couponers, but I was pretty close.
Our family was deep in debt, and I'd heard that you could save a boatload of money if you started couponing. So, I clipped like crazy, shopped the sales, and built a stockpile of the items that were most prevalent among coupons at the time, such as paper goods, toothpaste, frozen entrees, and boxed cereal. It very nearly took over my life and I also purchased more processed foods than I care to admit.
Since then, I've calmed down and cleaned up our diet significantly. You won't see much in the way of frozen chicken nuggets or boxed cereal crowding my kitchen. But I still use coupons to save money at the grocery sto
