In my fantasy world, I’d make a salad from mixed greens straight from the garden every night. Reality: I do eat a lot of salads. The greens? Most of them arrive from the grocery in a plastic tub or bag, clean and ready to go. Maybe that’s less romantic, but the convenience is unbeatable. And no matter what kind of greens I buy, they make me feel good, because they’re delicious and healthy. For this convenience-themed issue, on page 82 we look into the story behind how mixed greens took down iceberg lettuce and came to dominate produce departments everywhere (and in turn became my personal favorite convenience food!). When you stray beyond the produce section and move into the aisles lined with packaged foods—you know, all the ones from jarred…

Recipe Feedback I had been a subscriber to Cooking Light magazine for, oh… maybe 10-15 years? I was so sorry to hear they were stopping publication and were morphing with EatingWell magazine. I got my first copy in January, and it was quite different than what I had been used to. With every edition of my Cooking Light issue, I would go through the magazine and bookmark recipes that interested me or piqued my curiosity. That first issue of EatingWell, for me, was heavy on informational content and light on things I thought I’d actually prepare. Well, I’m excited to say that this past June’s issue of EatingWell has quite a few pages bookmarked for foods and meals I’m excited to try. I’m getting more used to reading the articles, and…

There’s a reason you can’t come within 5 miles of a spa without encountering this green guy. Cucumbers are incredibly hydrating—they’re about 95% water—and contain phytonutrients called lignans that reduce inflammation and have a soothing effect when applied to skin. A study published in the Journal of Aging Research & Clinical Practice found that the fruit (yep, it’s a fruit) combats swelling and irritation. Cucumber can also be used as a moisturizer and has even been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Best of all: it doesn’t just work its magic on your skin (cue the cuke slices over eyes). Evidence suggests that eating cucumber produces similar benefits, as well. Cool. “This ‘stadium of cucumbers’ was inspired by the classic 1952 Life image by J.R. Eyerman of people in…
