Q/ What do bay leaves add to a dish, and what types of recipes do they work best in? – ANDREW PRICE, SEATTLE, WA A/ Bay leaves add a subtle aromatic flavor that can elevate a good recipe into something spectacular. They work best in soups, stews, sauces or other brothbased recipes that require at least 1 hour of cooking time (although you can also use them in shorter recipes). Using dried bay leaves is recommended since fresh leaves can impart a strong menthol or eucalyptus flavor. Toss leaves in whole so that you can easily remove them as their dry, sharp texture makes them unpleasant to eat. Give bay leaves a try in Clean Eating's Cream of White Bean, Carrot & Ginger Soup with Cashews or Vidalia Onion-Braised Flank Steak…

bar stars

The hunt for a clean snack bar can be a challenge when you're facing the slew of grocery-store granola bars touting themselves as “healthy” when they are anything but. That's why it pays to be a label sleuth. Look for brands that artfully blend naturally sweet foods like dates with nuts, seeds, dried unsweetened fruits and superfoods like spirulina and cacao, and nix non-CE–approved ingredients like brown rice syrup, cane sugar and canola oil. Here are six of our guilt-free snacktime favorites. 1. MINTY MELON With moist, chocolaty flavor reminiscent of an after-dinner mint, Go Raw Grow Sprouted Raw Plant Protein Bar in Mint Chocolate boasts sprouted watermelon seeds as its star ingredient – they provide magnesium, zinc, folate and amino acids. $2, goraw.com 2. SUPERFOOD SNACK Lärabar Organic with Superfoods Turmeric, Ginger and…

your quick start guide to eating mindfully

CE: What is mindful eating? SA: We’re often on autopilot when we eat. We just pick up the fork and eat and don’t really think much about it. Mindful eating is about being in the moment and savoring. It’s not a diet; it’s behavioral strategies, or being in the moment, so that you can savor and enjoy food. CE: What are some key triggers of mindless eating? SA: Stress, boredom and anxiety. Simply having food present can cause it. There is a recent Cornell University study that looked at people’s kitchen counters. Those who had cereal and soda out in the open weighed up to 26 pounds more than those who didn’t. We often have a lot of associations, too. If you snack while watching TV, try to shake up your routine. You…
