what is clean eating?

The soul of clean eating is consuming food the way nature delivered it, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation. It’s about eating real food, for a healthy, happy life. Eat when hungry, stop when full. Find out what macro values reflect your health goals and strive to eat within them. Experiment with various ways of eating, and when you find a diet your body responds well to — be it a clean take on high fat/low carb, Paleo or flexitarian — stick with it. Choose organic whenever possible. If your budget limits you, make meat, eggs, dairy and the Dirty Dozen (ewg.org/foodnews) your organic priorities. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day, preferably from a reusable…

Q/ What is your secret to the perfect holiday turkey? A/ Here’s my secret for perfect turkey (brace yourself): I don’t cook the bird whole! I ask the butcher to cut it into eight pieces: two legs, two wings, two thighs and two breast halves. (If you buy a whole frozen turkey, you can do this yourself after it’s thawed. It isn’t difficult; I’m just lazy.) There’s really no reason to cook it whole. Cooking it in parts is far more convenient and solves all your turkey problems. Your oven isn’t hijacked for hours, and you can cook each part just as much as it needs – no more dried-out white meat. I roast the wings and breast halves, braise the legs and thighs, and use some of the braising liquid to…

3 ways with festive cocktails

Ditch the sugar-heavy mixes with artificial flavorings and additives. These better-for-you cocktails – that taste just as good spirit-free – rely on aromatics like cinnamon, star anise and cardamom for their cozy and complex flavor profiles. Plus, each drink uses antioxidant-rich natural sweeteners such as honey and maple syrup, so you can ring in the new year without a ringing headache!

a mighty vitamin

Vitamin C is perhaps the best-known vitamin of all, a go-to for those battling cold and flu symptoms and infamously inversely associated with scurvy in sailors. Now, new research shows that vitamin C may play a crucial role in retaining skeletal muscle mass in later years. The study, published by the University of East Anglia, examined data from over 13,000 people aged42 to 82 and found that older individuals with higher levels of vitamin C in their bloodstream than their peers consistently had better skeletal muscle mass. The loss of skeletal muscle mass is an issue that plagues us as we age, causing ailments such as sarcopenia and frailty, leading to a lower quality of life. According to the study’s lead researcher, Ailsa Welch, professor of nutritional epidemiology, skeletal muscle mass density…
