How to Get More REM Sleep
Rapid Eye Movement (REM) is a stage of sleep where your brain is very active and prone to dreaming. During REM sleep, your eyes actually make rapid movements. The amount of REM sleep you get may depend upon age and other factors, with infants spending 50 percent of time in REM and adults spending closer to 20 percent. Increased REM sleep has been shown to improve your memory recall and your overall mental abilities. You may also experience vivid dreams when you are in REM stage of your sleep cycle and may want to prolong your dreams at night.

Black Sea Bass with Summer Squash Polenta

Flank Steak with Grilled Tomatoes & Cucumber Herb Relish
Halved tomatoes keep their shape but get smoky-sweet flavor when grilled alongside the spice-rubbed steak in this healthy dinner recipe. The cool, crunchy cucumber relish is also spectacular served with grilled pork or chicken.

Grilled Chicken Taco Salad
Peppery arugula, grilled corn and a tangy lime vinaigrette give this healthy taco salad recipe a serious upgrade. This recipe is the perfect vehicle for using the crushed-up tortilla chips at the bottom of the bag.

Thai Curry & Pork Sesame Noodles
Thai curry paste, a flavorful combination of chiles, lemongrass, galangal (similar to ginger), garlic and kaffir lime leaves, adds a jolt of flavor to this healthy sesame noodles recipe. Green, red and yellow curry paste are pretty interchangeable but green is the hottest, red is medium and yellow is mild. Be sure to rinse the rice noodles until they’re cold, then give them a good shake in the colander until they’re well drained. Are you a spiralizing pro? Swap 5 cups of raw zucchini, carrot or other veggie “noodles” for the cooked pasta.
