Okay, I admit kale chips seem like a somewhat dated concept. I’d say they “jumped the shark” right about the time Cheezy Chipotle Kale Chips landed on the shelves at Whole Foods at a whopping five bucks a bag. That being said, if you just take a step back, turn your oven to 275º, and give yourself a half hour, you’ll remember why these healthy and delicious snacks became a craze in the first place.

I am in love, some may even say obsessed, with a chair. Yes, a chair. However, you won’t find this particular chair at your local furniture store or online at Pottery Barn. This chair wasn’t designed for kicking back and relaxing – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. This chair was created to tone and strengthen almost every muscle in your body, and enhance posture and balance too!

Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! Actually, cookies are typically a part of my breakfast every day (unless, of course, I am having a candy bar or a bag of gummy worms with my coffee instead). I am, without a doubt, the least healthy eater on the B-team…but January is all about clean eating on BobbyFlay.com, so I challenged myself to create a wholesome treat that would give an energy boost and satisfy my morning need for sweetness, without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Oh, and I really wanted my co-workers and all of you to love it too.

With bone broths in the spotlight, temperatures hovering in the teens and the B-Team focusing on clean eating for the month of January, I decided to get brothy. Few things are better than a warm soup on a cold night -- and broths are a wonderful and easy way to create flavor while keeping calories and fat in check.

As someone who has a raging, passionate love affair with vegetables all year long, I’ve been pretty pumped to dive right into our Clean Eating Month here on BobbyFlay.com. With that in mind, why not introduce some lovely, cleanly prepared veggies to one of my favorite weekend activities: BRUNCH. Enter, Ratatouille Omelet!

This month is all about cleaning eating for the B-Team (and many of those who hit the holidays a bit too hard!). For me, that means not just cutting out the booze, but also ditching the dairy, meat and gluten. Basically, I'm abstaining from all of my favorite things. But even with this “deprivation,” I don't have to skip dessert.

Make no mistake, the bowl is definitely having a moment. Açai bowls, grain bowls, savory porridge bowls…all the cool kids are eating them (at least that’s how it appears on Instagram). Is it trendy? Yes. But is it also an awesome, endlessly customizable, easy method for delicious clean eating? YES. I’m definitely on the bowl bandwagon.

A few weeks ago, we decided to give FlyBarre a try. We arrived at FlyBarre’s Flatiron location on 21st Street in Manhattan dressed in our workout clothes and ready for the challenge… Or were we?

If you're only eating yogurt with honey and fruit, you're missing out! Savory yogurt is popular in many cultures that have yogurt as part of their cuisine. In Turkey, cilbir is a savory breakfast involving yogurt and a poached egg doused with paprika or chile butter. In India, yogurt is used in multiple savory ways: added to curries, as a marinade for meat, sometimes acting as a cooling agent for all the lively, hot spices, other times adding a richness to round out a dish. You'll find strained yogurt, labneh, throughout the Middle East, often stirred with garlic or drizzled with olive oil and za'atar.

In our continued search for the hottest and best workouts in New York City, a few weeks ago we signed up for a class at CityRow in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan. A fifty-minute rowing class? We were intrigued and a bit scared, quite frankly.

One of my favorite drinks in the world is the Blueberry-Pomegranate Milkshake that is served at Bobby’s Burger Palace. I love the glorious color, the fruity scent, and the creamy texture -- it’s so thick that you have to use an extra-wide straw to drink it! I wish I could drink one every day. January is all about clean eating on BobbyFlay.com, so I decided to do an experiment: Could I take my favorite milkshake and make a wholesome version of it, with a similar flavor profile and texture, that’s healthy enough to drink on the regular?

Rolling Stone magazine named it the "hot" exercise of 1993 and indoor cycling has maintained its status as one of the most popular group classes at fitness clubs all around the world. I, personally, have been taking Spin classes since 1994 (ummm, I started when I was 10, I swear) when it arrived at my local Equinox in NYC. From the moment I adjusted my seat and handle bars and started pedaling, I was immediately addicted!. Fast forward 21 years, and indoor cycling continues to be more popular than ever and is still a big part of my workout routine (I take classes 3 to 4 times a week.) I am happy to say, it still challenges me and keeps me fit and I love it just as much today as I did the first time I tried it!

According to a Southern tradition dating back hundreds of years, starting the New Year with black eyed peas brings good luck. Keeping that tasty ritual in mind, I think I have the perfect New Year’s Day brunch dish. Yes, I know that is quite some statement but I really do believe I know what I am talking about.

What’s pale yellow, great with Bolognese, and perfect for twirling around a fork? Not pasta, but one of my favorite winter ingredients: spaghetti squash.

Pomegranates are a hallmark fruit of the holiday season. They look like an edible Christmas ornament -- one with an incredible inner architecture of bright, gem-toned seeds, bursting with flavor. One small problem: pomegranates can be a total pain in the you-know-what to deseed...if you don't know the trick, that is! Once you know the technique, less than a minute of work stands between you and a bowl of juicy pomegranate seeds.

Throughout the December holidays, we all do our very best to keep family traditions alive. Whether this is through family decorations or specific dishes or cultural customs, these traditions are what make our holiday gatherings truly special. I'm fortunate that my family's traditions are so delicious -- specifically, the always-present heaping dish of Christmas Eve pierogi!

Holiday season is well underway, and you know what that means: people are BUSY! With that in mind, I developed a festive recipe that's quick enough to serve on a weeknight (with some make-aheads), and beautiful and impressive enough to serve as the centerpiece for a holiday meal.

It seems there are a million variations on the humble latke, from the outlandish to the old school. The one thing that everyone seems to agree on: you can’t celebrate Hanukkah without them (that and that their grandmother’s latkes were the best around…).

When I was growing up, Christmastime was cookie time. At about six years old, I became my mother’s baking sous chef -- and my love of baking has only grown since then. While I was way too young to actually bake the cookies, I got to help with most of the prep: chopping the nuts for Italian Horns and Thumbprints in one of those old fashioned nut choppers, removing the Hershey’s Kisses wrappers for Peanut Butter Blossoms, and mixing the colored icings for the rolled sugar cookies.
