"self magazine" news and stories
I believe that if you're going to indulge in something like a grilled cheese sandwich, you should go all out. Butter the bread, use plenty of cheese and make something you'll really enjoy. I wouldn't recommend eating one of these babies every day, but once in a while, it's a perfectly good treat (especially when dunked in a bowl of oven roasted tomato soup).
However, I know that there are lots of you out there for whom a once in a while grilled cheese just doesn't cut it. For you, SELF Magazine has put together an article in which they try to help you elevate your grilled cheese to a slightly healthier level (it is still cheese and bread though, so don't be thinking that it's a diet food) by suggesting the addition of fruits and vegetables in your 'wich (I'm a fan of some green apple slices in with cheddar cheese) and reminding you to swap whole grain bread in for the classic white.

Only recently have I discovered an appreciation for cabbage. I suppose I grew up with the mind-set of "it's green and smells, therefore it must not taste good." I felt the same way back then about Brussels Sprouts, beet greens and asparagus.
Cabbage stuffed with beef, zucchini and herbs is a hearty dish that showcases the flavor of each ingredient, without loosing the integrity and texture of the cabbage. Cabbage, packed with vitamins K and C is also fairly inexpensive in a time where grocery bills have increased greatly.
When choosing cabbage, the heavier the better, but stay away from heads of cabbage with extra, giant leaves on the outside. Make sure the head doesn't give, as well, as that can be a sign of interior rot.
