what’s on your holiday menu?

Flipping through this issue is getting me in the mood for some serious holiday menu planning. Here’s what that looks like in my world: there will be many phone calls and texts with my mom and sister. These are part brainstorm, part negotiation. I will say something like, “Oh Ma, you should make that eggnog cake!” “The one with the cream sherry! Good idea!” she’ll reply. Or I’ll bring up ham to Katie, my sis, and she’ll start talking about the pineapple soufflé Mom once made with ham. Or Mom will suggest leg of lamb, which will quickly head us in a Middle Eastern direction with a smoky eggplant salad, cardamom-laced rice pilaf, tabouli and schug. Bring up rib roast and we’ll have to talk Yorkshire pudding techniques and debate…

not so vanilla

You’ve likely pulled out the ubiquitous brown bottle countless times already this season, but have you ever stopped to think about where the vanilla in that extract comes from? Those wrinkled brown pods are actually the fruit of a tropical species of climbing orchid that only blooms once a year, when it must be pollinated by hand—a delicate process that requires a special tool akin to a toothpick. This hand-pollination technique, discovered by a 12-year-old boy in 1841, allowed vanilla to be cultivated in places other than its native Mexico and contributed to the spice’s global popularity. Vanilla planifolia, the species used in most commercial vanilla production, is what you may know as Madagascar (or sometimes Bourbon) vanilla, although it’s also grown in Mexico, Papua New Guinea and other equatorial countries…

rd-approved convenience foods

FOR A HEALTHY START Breakfast Cereal “Fortified breakfast cereal is a budget-friendly, no-fuss way to get a lot of important nutrients,” says Los Angeles-based dietitian Patricia Bannan, M.S., RDN, author of Eat Right When Time Is Tight. People who regularly consume ready-to-eat cereal rack up more fiber, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc than those who don’t have it as often. Choose boxes with at least 3 grams of fiber and no more than 6 grams of added sugar per serving. Whole-grain Frozen Waffles No need to save waffles for the weekend! Whole-grain, high-protein varieties can help you stay surprisingly full thanks to a combo of fiber, egg whites and soy, wheat or whey protein. Aim for those with at least 8 grams of protein per serving, says Cara Harbstreet, M.S., RD, owner…

a better-balanced body

You need balance for a whole lot of things—from injury prevention to activities like skiing and, well, just everyday life. This complex “sixth sense” involves three interrelated systems—your vision, inner ears and muscles and joints—that tell you where your body is in space, or proprioception. As you age, it becomes even more important: studies show that balance starts to decline as early as your 40s, putting you at higher risk for falls and other injuries. “Balance is just like anything else—if you don’t use it, you lose it,” says physical therapist Tarik Chase, M.P.T., owner of Back to Life Physical Therapy in Washington, D.C. Try adding some of these simple, stability-boosting moves to your day. 1. Balance on One Foot. “This is the best exercise you can do,” says Caroline Fisher Queale,…
