MIGHTY BITES Cookout-bound? If you’re torn between the veggie burger or the classic, consider this: The meat-free patty is better at hitting the spot.So finds a University of Copenhagen study in which people whohad plant-based eats (a bean-and-pea patty) felt more satiated than those who went carnivore. Beans are rich in fiber for a bigger feel-full payoff. The hunk, re-thunk Just when we thought the dark stuff couldn’t get any more OMG, this smooth new bar doubles down on the antioxidants.

These latest styles toss Wimbledon prim in favor of modern details like contrasting stripes and visually enhanced pleats. Keep your serving (and strolling) look polished by choosing a monochromatic set, like this headturner by Monreal London (Tribal Bra, $109, and Plisse Skirt, $290, monreal london.com). Summer’s hot new flats Lugging…
