    Who here loves chocolate milk? I do! If you love the stuff, you probably have a strong opinion about what it should taste like, how thick it should be, how chocolatey, and how sweet. We gathered together 10 different chocolate milks, including skim, sugar-free, organic, artisan, and that stuff with a bunny on it for a CafeMom staff taste test. Which was the favorite? Which one came in dead last? The answers sure surprised me.

    I just want you all to know, I made a point of writing this post after lunchtime. And if you happen to be eating right now, I would strongly encourage you to put your fork down, swallow what's in your mouth, and grip the edge of your desk. Because: A woman found a lizard in her kale salad. But she didn't just find a lizard, as in a live lizard zipping in and out of the kale leaves. No, it's much worse than that. Robin Sandusky found just the head and an arm of the lizard.

    Some stars look like they live on water from the fountain of youth and magic golden apples. Actually, I'm pretty sure all of Hollywood is living on green juice and poached salmon these days. But supposedly even celebs indulge in some ordinary mortal food sometimes. In an interview with Self magazine, Jennifer Aniston divulged some of her favorite foods. You'll never believe what crunchy, messy food she loves snacking on -- and she makes it herself, from scratch!

    Do you know how much sugar is too much sugar? I had no effin' idea -- until now. According to the World Health Organization, only 5 percent of our calories should come from sugar. That's added sugar, by the way. Even broccoli has natural sugars, after all. WHO director of nutrition Francesco Branca admits that 10 percent is probably more realistic for most of us. But just out of curiosity, I wanted to figure out what 5 percent of your total calories per day would look like.

    Let's say you consume around 2000 calories a day. That would mean you could eat 100 calories in sugar. 100 calories of sweet, sweet indulgence. How many M&Ms is that, exactly? Well, our nutritional labels don't tell us that, yet. But you can estimate based on 4 calories per 1 gram of sugar.
