This question was the subject of a panel at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, where chefs Art Smith and Sue Torres, and Marc Murphy, culinary personality Katie Lee, and author Allison Adato talked about staying healthy in the food industry. While the easiest food to grab on the go — french fries, anyone? — isn't often the best choice, chefs recognize the importance of eating for health. Just ask Art Smith, who lost 95 pounds after a diabetes diagnosis. "There was no way I could run restaurants," he said of his prior health condition.
Now chefs like Smith are much more mindful about the impact their cooking has on clientele. "I'd rather have customers for a long time and not contribute to their demise," Smith says. "We are what we eat, and chefs are facilitators of food." Keep reading for a few healthy eating tips from chefs.
If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?

San Francisco couldn't be more excited for the Giants to enter the World Series. The whole city is lit up in orange, and the streets are peppered with proud fans donned in Giants paraphernalia. The lucky few spent a precious sum to attend the actual games, but for those of us at home, you can still get a taste of the AT&T Ballpark with these San Francisco ballpark favorites.
Anchor Steam BeerBrewed in San Francisco since 1896 and beloved by natives of the area, Anchor Steam beers are a foggy city trademark. Thick and hardy, this beer keeps San Franciscans warm when huddled in the AT&T Ballpark on cold, foggy nights.
Gilroy garlic fries are a must purchase when entering AT&T Ballpark. The skin-on fries are tossed in minced garlic and parsley. Wash 'em down with a beer, large soda, or even hot chocolate. To make at home, toss hot french fries in a metal bowl with about a tablespoon of minced garlic and half a tablespoon of parsley until the fries are evenly coated.
