meet the reusable revolution

The growing push to de-plasticize our lives has been one of the biggest stories of 2019. From a swell of legislation to a massive generational shift in priorities, the world seems to finally be waking up to the urgency of the problem: More than 32 countries and dozens of cities have now banned single-use plastic bags, and the EU has announced a ban on a range of single-use plastic items by 2020. Consumers are looking to shop more sustainably too: A recent Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability Report found 73% of millennials (who are about to snatch purchasing power from baby boomers) are willing to spend more on brands that demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices. And not a moment too soon. Plastics production has increased exponentially over the past 50 years,…

back to basics

On the move away from calorie counting: I love when people ask me this question because I believe when you eat the right foods, you don’t need to focus on calories and intuitive eating becomes second nature. That being said, the first step is to focus on quality and choose real foods, with a special focus on colorful, non-starchy plant foods. When you eat real foods that are nutrient-dense, your body rediscovers its natural hunger and satiation cues and feels great.

3 ways with cranberries

A TYPECAST TREAT Cranberries are synonymous with sumptuous feasts, but it’s truly a bum rap to relegate this fruit – one of only a handful native to North America – to the holiday table. Packed with fiber and a good source of vitamin C, this berry can enhance both sweet and savory dishes with its memorably tart taste. Though these recipes call for fresh cranberries, frozen can be used in a pinch or when cooking outside of the berry’s short growing season, which spans from September to November, just in time for Thanksgiving. A word to the wise: Don’t try to substitute dried cranberries for fresh in any recipe that involves reducing to a sauce, like the three included here. (You’ve been warned!) Cranberry-Glazed Chicken GF SERVES 4. 2 lb bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (4 to…
