Q: I thought bread was highly processed. Why is it a part of the clean-eating lifestyle? _ ROBERTA NICHOLLS, NEW YORK, NY A: Refined grains, in particular, are highly processed as the healthful parts of the grain known as the germ and the bran are removed. Whole-grains, on the other hand, retain the germ and bran and contain nutrients such as fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E and magnesium. In fact, according to a study published in BMC Medicine, people who eat whole grains have a 20% reduced risk of death from all causes.

We suggest reading labels closely and being very discriminating – or even baking your own bread from whole-grain flour. _ ANDREA GOURGY,…

I’m making more for the rest of the week as we speak. Love the recipes! – Christy Campbell, Casselberry, FL FAMILY FAVORITE I just made your “Just Like Nonna's Frittatas” (p. 48, September 2015), and they were great – my family loved them and they were easy to make. Instead of using grape tomatoes, I cut up tomatoes from my garden; they gave the frittatas a nice, sweet bite. I have made several of your recipes this year, but this is my favorite. – Vaney Stone, Vacaville, CA I read “The Prevent & Heal Issue” today while waiting for my husband to get…
