do. everything. easier.

Hi, Clean Eaters! It’s finally summer, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. As a general rule each year when we put our summer issue together, the editorial team takes a careful pass from cover to cover before sending the final pages off to the printer to ensure we haven’t overused the word “summer” – because we’re just that excited. (And I can assure you, we typically have to take it down by a solid third. If you notice a high incidence of us marking the season with gusto, you’ll know why!) What do we love so much about it? Aside from the usual suspects (food, weather, travel, social gatherings), it’s the long, laid-back, slower-paced days, of course. But we also know that for the matriarch, patriarch, host or household cook, sometimes…

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…

the   age-better diet

John Stamos may have the diet of his Greek ancestors to thank for his ability to seemingly get younger with each passing year. The Mediterranean diet – best known for its inclusion of fresh fruits and vegetables, minimally processed whole grains, heart-healthy fats from nuts, seeds and olive oil, moderate amounts of fish, and low amounts of meat – was the subject of discussion in a recent issue of The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences. Here are some of the key findings that suggest this way of eating may help delay aging. REINFORCE YOUR DNA: A 2016 study included in the issue noted that, because of its high levels of anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fats, the Mediterranean diet can help reduce telomere shortening in patients with coronary…

THE RISE OF CBD As one of over 85 known phytocannabinoids that naturally occur in the cannabis plant, cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound that interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system to help the body regulate biological processes including sleep, immune response, appetite and memory, despite the constant influx of external influences or stressors. While research is still ongoing, CBD is generating a lot of buzz for helping relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety, preventing insomnia and reducing inflammation and joint pain, among other health benefits. According to Hemp Business Journal, sales for CBD oil are projected to reach a whopping $1.8 billion by 2020. CE RECOMMENDS: Barlean’s (barleans.com) has launched two new CBD hemp oils: Extra Strength Ideal (25 mg of CBD per serving; $70) and Organic Ideal (10 mg…
