save time & money this fall!

Two commodities most of us never seem to have nearly enough of are time and money. Every year at this time, we dedicate our September issue to helping you get a little of each of these back with carefully planned, budget-saving meals and tactics for shaving time off meal prep (and PS: it’s our best-selling issue every year). Start on page 42 where we gave our recipe developer the ultimate task of creating a week’s worth of suppers for just $60 – that’s at most $5 a plate, and they are irresistible. And in the spirit of gaining back some precious “you” time, we got really crafty in the test kitchen with the ever-popular Instant Pot and created some genius make-ahead meals that go from your freezer to your multicooker for those…

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…

letters & advisory board

Q/ I can’t afford to buy everything organic. Where can I save money? A/ It’s true that organic foods cost more than conventionally grown products, but not everything you buy has to be organic. The main reason for choosing organic is so you can avoid the nasty pesticides that are sprayed on crops and the hormones and antibiotics fed to animals. We recommend you consult the Environmental Working Group’s annual list of the “Dirty Dozen,” the 12 crops with the highest levels of pesticides. Its “Clean 15” list will help guide you as to which conventionally grown foods are generally safe to stick with. In addition to these lists, here are our tips for going organic on a budget: Shop store brands’ organic lines; buy from local farmers; scoop items from…

flipping the switch on fat

Scientists have previously demonstrated that cooler temperatures can promote the formation of “good” brown adipose tissue – the type of fat known to burn excess calories, fat and sugar as well as helping to regulate blood sugar – but they weren’t sure how this occurred. A new study out of the University of Nottingham in England has gained insight into the process, revealing that adult cells can be triggered to form “good” brown fat (versus the “bad” white fat cells associated with weight gain) by a modest dip in temperature – taking the body’s normal temperature of 98.6°F down to 89.6°F. Next steps in this research include finding the “on” switch in the cell that makes it respond to temperature change. Once this receptor is located, people who want help…
