i’ve got news!

Take It Easy Welcome to our annual Easy edition, which also happens to be our 9th Annual Clean Choice Awards issue – boy, are you in for a loaded issue this month! In case you haven’t guessed, the theme aims to make your life easier, in and out of the kitchen, and one of my favorite features is that every single recipe rings in at 10 ingredients or less, keeping things quick, simple and easy on your wallet. And speaking of limited ingredients, we have two stories that take it a step further. On page 26, you’ll find “Five Weeknight Dinners in Just One Grocery Bag” where a humble little list of just 20 items (plus a few pantry staples) turns out 5 radically different and totally creative dinners. And on page 74,…

eastern healing

For many in North America, the term “Ayurveda” isn’t only tough to pronounce – it’s difficult to define. Practiced for millennia in India, Ayurveda (phonetically ai-ur-vey-duh) is one of the oldest forms of medicine in the world. Generally speaking, Ayurvedic practitioners and doctors prescribe herbs and whole foods (such as kitchari, a rice and lentil concoction that is the backbone of many Ayurvedic fasts) and lifestyle interventions such as yoga to help stoke their patients’ digestive “fire” – called agni – prevent disease and treat many common maladies. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health estimates that around 240,000 American adults, or about one-tenth of 1% of the total population, actively practice Ayurvedic medicine. And there are aspects of Ayurveda that are gaining credence in scientific circles. A 2018 review of…

3 ways with muffins

Forget the heavy, sugar-laden muffins served at your local coffee shop. These clean, handheld treats are chock full of flavor with soft, fluffy structures that are still strong enough to hold up to a smear or two of spread. (May we suggest a raw nut butter or no-sugar-added jelly?) They also rise to the occasion (pun intended) by addressing three different dietary focuses: You can select from a whole-wheat, Paleo or gluten-free option to satisfy even the pickiest of bake-sale patrons. Whole-Wheat Hummingbird Muffins F Q V SERVES 12. 1¾ cups white whole-wheat flour1 tsp baking soda1 tsp ground cinnamon½ tsp sea salt⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil½ cup pure maple syrup2 large eggs, room temperature2 ripe bananas, mashed¾ cup drained canned pineapple chunks, divided¾ cup roughly chopped toasted pecans, divided 1.
