Thai-Inspired Shrimp Pasta

Kevin CurryThis is a 15-minute (well, maybe 20-minute if you're not a pro at multitasking) recipe that is perfect for weeknights. Plus, it uses common items like pasta and peanut butter to put together a Thai-inspired meal that warms and nourishes your body from the inside out. Don't want seafood? Make it vegetarian by using tofu instead of shrimp!

Dogs do dream! Dogs and humans have the same type of slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) and during this REM stage dogs can dream. The twitching and paw movements that occur during their sleep are signs that your pet is dreaming

Cajun Shrimp Chopped Salad

Kevin CurryCooking shrimp takes minimal effort and time since it's a lean protein. You can customize this light and lively salad with your favorite leafy greens and other veggies you enjoy. Using Greek yogurt for a dressing is also a way to ensure all yogurt you purchase at the top of the week doesn't go to waste.Cashew Chicken and Asparagus

Cashew Chicken and Asparagus

Kevin CurryI love adding cashews to my diet because they help curb my sweet cravings. They are slightly sweeter than some of the other raw nuts, so I’ll often eat them as a snack. They also have a naturally buttery element that makes them a fabulous addition, not just in breakfasts and snacks, but also to dinners. Here, they bring crunch to a Chinese American-inspired chicken and asparagus dish with salty soy sauce, tangy vinegar and zingy ginger.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Having a dog in the house means more bacteria enters the home and gets inside the occupants (one study found “dog-related biodiversity” is especially high on pillowcases.) In turn, people with dogs seem to get ill less frequently and less severely than people with no pets.

Grilled Chicken Gyros with Fresh Tzatziki Sauce

This simple and incredibly flavorful recipe for homemade chicken gyros comes together in less than 30 minutes. The beauty of this iconic Greek dish is that it draws upon ingredients that, when combined, create the most juicy, bright and refreshing notes. Hot, grilled pita holds the tender chicken, crisp lettuce and sweet tomatoes. And it's all topped with a cooling cucumber tzatziki sauce.

Teach Your Children to Ask Permission Before Petting a Strange Dog. There are 4.5 million dog bites in America each year, half of which happen to children. Make sure to teach your children to ask permission before petting any strange dogs.

Buffalo Falafel Bites

Elena BesserBuffalo wings are one of my favorite foods. I actually have a framed photograph of Buffalo wings that hangs above my bed. Half of my family lives in Israel, so Middle Eastern cuisine is a big inspiration to me. This recipe is a combination of two of my favorite foods and a great weeknight meal that comes together in just 30 minutes.Priyanka Naik's Indian-stuffed French toastSavory Stuffed French Toast

Savory Stuffed French Toast

Priyanka NaikDuring my family's annual trip to my mother's home city, Ankali in Karnataka, India, we would spend our days at uncle and aunt's bungalow, surrounded by farmland where everything was fresh. They would make us these delicious, spicy, egg-coated toasts with chilis, onions and spices — they were so good! When I went vegan, I obviously gave up eggs but I've been able to mimic that delightful texture with a spiced chickpea batter.

Help your pet be as active as nature intended. Exercise and play time are necessary for your pet’s mental and physical well-being. If you don’t give your dog opportunities to be physically active, or if you don’t encourage exercise for your kitty and find ways to make it happen, you may well end up with a bored, destructive, overweight pet whose health will spiral downward throughout her lifetime.
