The Kewlest Kid on the Block!
Reed Alexander is our new BFF! Not just because he plays the hysterically evil Nevel on iCarly (that IS pretty awesome, though), but also because he has launched his very own website called KewlBites, targeted at helping everyone -- especially teens -- eat smarter and feel better. Oh, did we mention that Reed is 14 years old? Yeah. He's not a nutritionist or Doogie-Howser-type doctor, he's just smart: He did a bunch of research and lost about 15 pounds, and now he wants to share his newfound knowledge. We think his site is totally worth passing along to middle/high school students... but really, anyone could benefit from this info. GO, REED!
Reed to the Rescue!

Grilled Dijon Chicken & Portobellos (450 calories) - Grilled chicken is topped with those portobellos as well as roasted red peppers, cheddar cheese, and a Dijon sauce. AND it comes with steamed herb potatoes and a side of veggies. We love this!

Asian Crunch Salad (490 calories) - Greens, sugar snap peas, roasted red peppers, and cukes are topped with grilled chicken, sliced almonds, and an Asian vinaigrette dressing. AMAZING!
