clean eating // editor's letter
What is Clean Eating? The soul of clean eating is consuming food the way nature delivered it, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life – one meal at a time. Eat five to six times a day – three meals and two to three small snacks. Include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and a complex carbohydrate with each meal. This keeps your body energized and burning calories efficiently all day long.
Eating Simplified through a busy week with energy to spare. Continue saving time and money and whip up dinner fast with 5-ingredient meals that taste gourmet on page 64. And for breezy weeknight meals, try our 3-step meal salads on page 44 and unbelievable foil-pack dinners (p. 54) that can be cooked on the grill or in your oven. These glorious little bundles pack everything you need for a satisfying supper in one pouch and they are tasty enough for company and leave you with no dishes to clean. Finally, prep everything you need for a week of clean eating on Sunday and just grab and go and reheat throughout the week (p. 32). Because we’ve received such overwhelming praise for this department by talented recipe developer and culinary instructor Amy Symington, I am thrilled to announce it will now be a regular fixture in every issue, helping you to eat clean all week long with just an afternoon of work. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Drink at least two liters of water a day, preferably from a reusable canteen, not plastic; we’re friends of the environment here! Limit your alcohol intake to one glass of antioxidantrich red wine a day. Get label savvy. Clean foods contain short ingredient lists. Any product with a long ingredient list is human-made and not considered clean.
Avoid processed and refined foods such as white flour, sugar, bread and pasta. Enjoy complex carbs such as whole grains instead. Know thy enemies. Steer clear of anything containing trans fats, anything fried or anything high in sugar. Avoid preservatives, color additives and toxic binders, stabilizers, emulsifiers and fat replacers. Consume healthy fats (essential fatty acids, or EFAs) every day. Learn about portion sizes and work toward eating within them. Reduce your carbon footprint. Eat produce that is seasonal and local. It is less taxing on your wallet and our environment.
Shop with a conscience. Consume humanely raised, local meats and ocean-friendly seafood. Visit seachoice.org for a printable pamphlet. Practice mindful eating. Never rush through a meal. Food tastes best when savored. Enjoy every bite. Take it to go. Pack a cooler for work or outings so you always have clean eats on the go. Make it a family affair. Food is a social glue that should be shared with loved ones. Improve the quality of your family’s life along with your own.

We Hear You!
outside before they should be thrown away? – CHRISTINE KIRKLAND, LOS ANGELES, CA
A: According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 40°F to 140°F is the “danger zone” for perishable food, where bacteria can grow fast enough to quickly render it unsafe. How quickly? Within two hours, they say, or one hour if the temperature outside is 90°F or more. The danger zone applies to all perishable foods such as meats, seafood, cheese, dairy, fruits, vegetables and cooked grains. Does this mean you’re taking your life into your hands at 120 minutes? Maybe not, but better to be safe than sorry. Better still, if you’ll be lingering over your meal at a picnic or barbecue, make sure to keep cold foods in a cooler with ice, hot foods in insulated containers and cooked meats on one side of the grill (just away from the coals) until serving.

Q: How long can barbecue and picnic foods keep safely
Health-Watch Exposé: How to Break Through Your Weight Loss Plateau By Amber Rios
eing a health and nutrition correspondent means that companies frequently send me their products, and ask for my stamp of approval. Most of the time I dive into research, give the product a try, and send the company honest feedback about what they’ll need to change before I’ll recommend it. Plus, my hectic job and my determination to stay fit means I’m always hunting for a quick and nutritious way to fill up on nutrients my body needs. So I can confidently say, “I’ve tried it all”. Like many people out there, one of my biggest frustrations when I am trying to lose weight is when my progress halts despite the fact that I continue to follow a strict plan. On my last workout, I expressed my frustration to my elite personal trainer, Tony, a triathlon winning, organic-to-thebone fitness guy with a ten mile long track record of whipping the “who’s who” into shape in record time. Tony handed me a meal replacement drink and told me to include it in my regular diet. He simply said, “You will be astounded by the taste and the results you will see!” With more than a healthy dose of scepticism, I decided to investigate the shake Tony handed me to try called INVIGOR8. Turns out, he was right about the taste. After one sip I thought there is no way this can be healthy because the creamy chocolate flavor is just too delicious. I was stunned because virtually every other meal replacement shake I’ve tried has tasted chalky, clumpy and are packed with hidden “no-no’s” like cheap protein, tons of artificial ingredients, not to mention harmful synthetic dyes, additives, sugars, preservatives, and hormones. And even though INVIGOR8’s full meal replacement shake costs more than many of the shakes I’ve tried, it was about half the price of my favorite salad, and the nutrition profile looked second to none. Still sceptical, I looked up the reviews
online and reached out to a few people to get their feedback on the product. By the next morning three people got back to me saying, “As a trainer I love Invigor8. It’s definitely helped me to have more all-day energy, plus build the kind of lean sculpted muscle that burns more fat.” “Yes, I’ll recommend it, it tastes great, and I really like how it keeps me feeling full for hours.” “I’m a marathon runner and a friend recommended it to me. Drinking it has become a part of my regular training routine, because my time has improved, my energy is up, and I’m thinking more clearly than ever before.” I decided to take my investigation one step further by researching the development of INVIGOR8. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the company went to great lengths to keep INVIGOR8 free of harmful ingredients. The makers of INVIGOR8 were determined to make the first 100% natural, organic, non-GMO nutritional shake & superfood. The result is a meal replacement shake that contains 100% grass-fed whey that has a superior nutrient profile to the grain-fed whey found in most shakes, metabolism boosting raw organic coconut oil, hormone free colostrum to promote a healthy immune system, Omega 3, 6, 9-rich chia and flaxseeds, superfood greens like kale, spinach, broccoli, alfalfa, and chlorella, and clinically tested cognitive enhancers for improved mood and brain function. The company even went a step further by including a balance of pre and probiotics for optimal digestive health, uptake, and regularity and digestive enzymes so your body absorbs the high-caliber nutrition you get from INVIGOR8. As a whole-foods nutritionist with a thriving practice, I understand the importance of filling my body with the best Mother Nature has to offer. I am always reluctant when trying new products because
I am never sure of the impact they will have on my energy and weight. INVIGOR8 is different, not only because it’s delicious, but because it helps me to maintain the energy I need to run my busy practice, while staying fit and toned. Considering all of the shakes I’ve tried, I can honestly say that the results I’ve experienced from INVIGOR8 are nothing short of amazing. A company spokesperson confirmed a special offer: if you order this month, you’ll receive Free Enrollment into the company’s Loyalty Program where you’ll qualify to receive a $10 discount on every bottle of INVIGOR8. And so you don’t go a month without INVIGOR8 - helping you lose weight while getting toned, you’ll automatically receive a fresh bottle every 30-days. There are no minimum amounts of bottles to buy and you can cancel at any time. You can order INVIGOR8 today at www.DrinkInvigor8.com or by calling 1-800-958-3392.

“I’ve had a camera in my hands since I can remember and a home darkroom that I practically lived in when I was about 15 years old,” says “Fresh & Fast 5-Ingredient Meals” (p. 64) photographer Brandon Barré, who went on to study film at university before realizing photography was his true calling. In addition to Clean Eating, Barré has also contributed to cookbooks as well as hotel and architectural photography.
"We all have times when we need to quickly put something healthful and delicious on the table, with limited expense,” says Jennie Schacht, who created the scrumptious weeknight recipes in “Budget-Stretching Dinners” (p. 72). When Schacht’s not writing, she enjoys improving her photography skills and spending time in the kitchen fermenting veggies and baking breads and desserts.
WOODLAND HILLS, CA Known as "The Nutrition Myth Buster," Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS, penned this month’s “Ask Dr. Jonny" (p. 42), where he delved into the latest findings on omega-7s, citrus bergamot and dietary fats. "I love effecting change through my work, talking truth to power, busting boneheaded myths and making a difference in people’s lives," says Bowden.

Kate Geagan's love affair with healthy food began at age 22 when she bought a one-way ticket to Italy where she worked at a cooking school in Florence for a year before returning to the US to complete her master’s degree in nutrition. For this issue, the registered dietitian nutritionist developed “Your One-Week Jump-Start to Wellness” on page 78. “I love how eaters and health professionals alike continue to be awakening to the connections between how we produce our food and its impact on our health,” says Geagan.

EAT IT: Can be used the same way as regular strawberries in desserts and salads, but these sweet, aromatic berries are best enjoyed fresh or as a garnish. They also pair nicely with soft cheeses, such as burrata and goat cheese.
Though sometimes mistaken as a genetically modiﬁed fruit, the pineberry is actually a fragrant hybrid of the South American strawberry variety Fragaria chiloensis and the North American strawberry variety Fragaria virginiana, which results in a conical white berry with red seeds. You’ll ﬁnd these soft, juicy berries in small quantities at gourmet grocers and specialty food stores.
HEALTH BENEFITS: A good source of vitamins A, C and folate. This super berry is great for strengthening your immune system and for supporting heart health.
Try a new berry on for size this summer with this nutritious strawberrylike fruit that tastes like pineapple.
STORE IT: These berries are delicate and highly perishable, so keep them refrigerated until ready to eat and enjoy them as soon as possible.
PREP IT: Wash just before eating, as moisture will shorten their shelf life.

Maple Syrup: A Brainy New Superfood?
Rethink the Weekend Binge If you religiously eat kale salads and acai bowls during the week but think it’s OK to binge on pizza and wine all weekend long, it might be time for a little reality check. A new study from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) suggests that whole-weekend binge eating may be just as bad for your gut microbiome as a regular diet of junk food. Furthermore, the study found that yo-yo dieting reduced the number of microbial species capable of metabolizing ﬂavonoids, which aid in weight loss and help protect neurons in the brain. In the study, lead researcher Margaret Morris, the head of pharmacology at UNSW, fed rats either a healthy diet of “chow” (low-fat rat food) or a diet of cafeteria food. The rats in the cafeteria-food group were fed foods like cakes, meat pies and dim sum three days per week but ate low-fat foods the other days of the week. Science has already shown that

eating unhealthy foods can lead to a disruption in normal gut bacteria, which has been linked to conditions such as inﬂammatory bowel disease and obesity. But what we didn’t already know, as UNSW researchers point out, is that eating badly even three days a week is enough to alter the gut microbiota toward the pattern seen in obese rats. Though further study on humans is needed, Morris says that if you’re generally eating a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables and good-quality proteins, then the occasional splurge should be ﬁne. “It is likely that the occasional treat like a slice of cake or half a pizza, if consumed once a week, would not have enormously detrimental effects on the gut microbiota,” she says. So to avoid reversing the effects of healthy weekday eating, keep your clean-eating lifestyle on track – even on the weekends. Instead of two days of indulging, strive for two treats instead!
Cut down on sodium by seasoning foods like scrambled eggs, meats and sauces with ﬂavorful spices like paprika, turmeric and chile powder instead of salt. Not only will these perk up your dishes, but they'll also add plenty of health-boosting beneﬁts since many spices have anti-inﬂammatory properties and are rich in antioxidants.
Maple syrup might be more than just a sweet treat for your taste buds. Two new studies reveal that it could help prevent Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases. One study conducted on test tubes, led by Donald Weaver, PhD, director of the Krembil Research Institute at the University Health Network in Toronto, found that a maple syrup extract prevented two brain cell proteins (beta amyloid and tau peptide) from clumping together and folding the wrong way. When cellular proteins accumulate, they form the plaque that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. A similar study, led by Navindra Seeram, PhD, of The University of Rhode Island, showed that the extract also reduced inflammation created by microglial brain cells (the primary immune cells of the central nervous system that defend against illness-causing organisms) in addition to protecting neurons. Don’t start guzzling gallons of syrup Elf-style just yet, however. Further research is needed to pinpoint the compounds responsible for the effects and to see if the results can be mimicked in people. Dr. Seeram recommends darker, pure maple syrups, which pack more healthy compounds, and avoiding “pancake syrup,” which often contains high-fructose corn syrup and other additives.

UGLY PRODUCE In an effort to reduce food waste and get consumers to become more creative with their food, Whole Foods Market has joined forces with Imperfect Produce to sell “ugly” or imperfect-looking fruits and vegetables in their Northern California stores. Despite their gnarled looks, ugly produce are just as nutritious and safe to consume as more attractivelooking produce. Whole Foods already uses ugly produce in its fresh prepared foods, juices and smoothies and has an in-store composting program – so if sales go well at the pilot locations, expect to see more unsightly produce springing up on store shelves in other cities soon. At home, you can do your part to cut down on produce waste by composting or reusing food scraps in recipes whenever possible.

GMO LABEL TRANSPARENCY In the battle of genetically modified organism (GMO) labeling wars, some of the nation’s biggest food companies have made their voices loud and clear – and for good reason. In March, ConAgra Foods, CONTAINS Kellogg’s, General Mills and Mars, Inc. joined Campbell Soup Company GMOs (which previously voiced its support in January) in declaring their intent to label GMOs in their food products. Campbell is also asking for mandatory labeling standards to be established for foods derived from GMOs, which will require consultation with the FDA and approval by the USDA. This comes hot on the heels of the US Senate’s decision to reject what opponents coined the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, a bill that would have made the labeling of GMO ingredients voluntary. (The official name of the bill was, ironically, The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015.) With big food joining the fight for Americans to know what’s in their food, it’s a positive step in the right direction. In the meantime, be a label sleuth at the grocery store and make sure that any packaged products sport the Non-GMO Project Verified seal and make sure to buy only organic for common GMO crops like corn and soybeans.

Why Meal Times Matter New research from the Weizmann Institute of Science suggests that when you eat may be just as important as what you eat. Though the work is in its infancy, lead researcher Gad Asher, MD, PhD, says eating according to your body’s circadian clock may help ﬁght obesity. “So far, most efforts to ﬁght obesity and metabolic syndrome centered on the food composition, such as the amount of calories and their source, and did not take into account that the time one ingests the food is also critical,” says Dr. Asher. Animal studies done in his lab and other labs indicate that mice that are restricted to eating only during their activity time do not develop obesity and metabolic syndrome compared to mice that eat at will. The research team identiﬁed and quantiﬁed hundreds of mitochondrial proteins, which power our cells, and found that 40% of these proteins peak once a day. Of these proteins, they discovered an enzyme that establishes the rate of sugars needed for energy production. The enzyme peaked four hours into the daylight part of the circadian cycle, suggesting that the mitochondria’s capacity for burning sugar is at its highest around this time. Dr. Asher says many questions need to be addressed to determine whether these ﬁndings are also relevant for humans, but maintaining a balance between what and when you eat seems to be important. “The basic principle is that you should limit your food consumption to the activity phase (i.e., during the day) and avoid eating during rest time (i.e., at night), in accordance with your internal body time,” he says.
Have you ever watched a movie while munching away on your favorite snack, only to discover your fingers scraping crumbs from the bottom of the bag moments later? For many of us, this is all too common. But don’t blame all the mindless munching on a lack of willpower. According to a new study published in Food Quality and Preference, snacking to loud music or watching loud TV may cause you to eat more. “Sound is an interesting sensory cue because the sound creates natural reminders of the eating experience – as long as you can hear the sound of your food, you are more aware of how much you are eating,” says Gina Mohr, PhD, study co-author and assistant professor of marketing at Colorado State University. Study participants, who ate crunchy snacks (pretzels, cookies and pita chips) while listening to loud ambient noise, consumed more than those who snacked while listening to soft ambient noise. Researchers call this phenomenon “the crunch effect.” To avoid slipping into a mindlesseating trance, pay attention to the sound and feel of each morsel as you eat. “Attending to the sound the food makes is one way that you can reduce your food consumption,” says Mohr. And as we all know, eating fewer calories is a key factor to successful weight maintenance or weight loss.

What are the health benefits of seaweed?
Seaweed has long been in use in many Asian cuisines. But it’s still used relatively infrequently as a dietary component in the US – most Americans probably consume seaweed most often when eating sushi. That’s too bad, because seaweed has some powerful health benefits. Seaweed is potent with antioxidants and packed with minerals – particularly iodine, but also iron and calcium. Seaweed is also a source of vitamins, including vitamin K and a spectrum of B vitamins, as well as vitamins A and C. Scientific studies suggest seaweed has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help protect against cardiovascular disease as well as other chronic health conditions. Lignanrich seaweed has been linked to improved hormone regulation and balance – specifically the regulation of estrogen levels – and may offer protection against some cancers. How can you add more seaweed to your diet? This versatile sea veggie is great raw in salads and simmered in soups. Dried seaweed can also be added to soups and stews, as well as to vegetable dips and smoothies.
Can fish oil help with weight loss?
Omega-3-rich fish oils have long been recommended for heart health, decreasing inflammation, and brain and eye health. A 2015 study out of Kyoto University found that a diet rich in fish oil helped convert fat-storage cells to fat-burning cells, which could help prevent middle-age weight gain. The body has three types of fat cells: white fat cells, which store fat, brown fat cells, which burn calories to heat the body and are found abundantly in infants, and beige fat cells, which can function like brown fat cells. They fed a group of mice two diets – one rich in fish oil and one
metabolizing cells, which can assist in weight loss. Registered dietitians Tiffani Bachus and Erin Macdonald are the co-founders and creators of URockGirl.com, a website dedicated to promoting wellness and a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Do you have burned food stuck to a pot or pan? Don’t despair if you’re in this sticky situation. Fill metal pots or pans with 14 cup of baking soda and enough water to cover the food, then boil. Simmer for 15 minutes and then let sit for 30 minutes; scrub the pan. The food should come right off. If not, repeat the process with white vinegar added to the mix.

Curious about adaptogens? Find out how to safely implement them into your clean-eating routine – they can help manage stress, ﬁght fatigue and improve mental performance, among other health-boosting beneﬁts. BY LAURA SCHOBER Adaptogenic herbs help improve the health of your adrenal system, which is responsible for managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. “Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without overstimulating,” says Frank Lipman, MD, founder and director of Eleven-Eleven Wellness Center in New York City and a pioneer of integrative and functional medicine. “They work a bit like a thermostat for the body. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high, it brings it down; when the temperature is too low, it brings it up.” To get started, here a several adaptogens you may want to consider implementing into your routine:

Sampling the Gifts of the
Sea d Shore BY JENNIFER DAVIS-FLYNN
The fresh and local culinary philosophy begins with the 50 Meyer lemon trees encircling the property. “We never have to buy a lemon,” says Executive Chef Bernard Ibarra. Meyer lemon cocktails, desserts and ﬂavored sea salt are found on the resort’s restaurant menus. Terranea employees harvest sea salt by hand in the on-site conservatory, and this mineral-rich salt is also used in the oceanfront spa for various treatments, like the signature sea salt exfoliation and massage. Ibarra oversees the resort’s farm, the breathtaking Catalina View Gardens, located just a few miles east of the resort. Ibarra, who was raised on a farm in the Basque Country of
Spain, takes great pride in his rotating selection of vegetables. Asparagus, Swiss chard, kohlrabi, fennel, chile peppers and heirloom tomatoes bask in the year-round California sunshine, while groves of olive and avocado trees trail down the hillside towards the deep blue Paciﬁc below. Although the 4,000-square-foot garden is far from sustaining all the produce requirements of the resort, Chef Ibarra plans to expand it to 10,000 square feet over the next year. Ibarra is quick to praise all his staff, even the ones with six legs. He sources 160 pounds of honey a year from the four hives on the farm. “We have 150,000 more Terrenea employees,” he
says, speaking of the bees. “They don’t have a name tag, but they work hard.” The fresh produce, sea salt and honey come together at Terranea’s mar’sel restaurant, popular for its multi-course seasonal tasting menus and wine pairings. The restaurant also has its own herb garden on-site. Standout menu items have included fresh abalone pulled from the sea and caramelized Brussels sprouts dusted with sea salt. But it’s the magniﬁcent beauty of this seaside sanctuary that truly delights the senses. Terranea blends seamlessly with its surroundings, inviting you to relax. Lie back, inhale the salty air, and if you’re lucky, watch a pod of dolphins joyfully swim by.

Perched on the rocky coast of Rancho Palos Verdes, California, Terranea destination hotel combines ultimate luxury with sustainability. A mere 30 miles south of Los Angeles, this 582-room, 102-acre eco-resort is a world away from the city’s notorious traffic and urban sprawl, luring visitors with its endless ocean views, four heated pools, nine-hole golf course, 50,000-squarefoot spa and fitness center, two miles of oceanfront trails and eight dining venues with a variety of farm-to-table dining options.

Glass Cleaner store-bought spray and learn how to make your own glass cleaner using a trio of natural disinfectants. BY KATHRIN BRUNNER, PHOTOGRAPHY BY MEAGHAN EADY
It’s time to ditch the blue stuff – and the respiratory toxins, hormone-disrupting chemicals and skin irritants that come along with it. For this DIY glass cleaner, we replace nasty chemicals with white vinegar for a streak-free shine for windows and mirrors, but let’s face it – the stuff stinks! So we sweetened the smell with an infusion of lavender and lemon for an invigorating floral-citrus scent that makes cleaning all the more enjoyable.
Pretty-in-Pink Glass Cleaner INGREDIENTS: • 1 lemon, peeled • 1½ cups white vinegar, divided • 1⁄3 cup dried lavender buds
EQUIPMENT: • 2 small Mason jars and lids • 1 spray bottle
ONE: To a small Mason jar, add lemon peels and cover with ¾ cup vinegar. Close jar with lid. TWO: To another small Mason jar, add dried lavender buds and cover with remaining ¾ cup vinegar. Close jar with lid. THREE: Allow peels and buds to infuse for 2 weeks. FOUR: After 2 weeks, strain out peels and buds and combine infused vinegars in a spray bottle; dilute with 2½ cups water. TIP: Use on glass, mirrors, ceramic tiles and stainless steel. Avoid using on granite, marble and stone tiles as these surfaces could get damaged by the acidic ingredients in this cleaner.

PREP SUNDAY Eat Clean All Week! Here’s everything you need for a delicious week of clean and energizing meals. BY AMY SYMINGTON, PHOTOGRAPHY BY KELLY BRISSON
Whatever day of the week “Sunday” may be for you, it is that blessed day you use to get your home in order before the beginning of the hectic workweek. It’s the day you do laundry, tackle the backlog of dishes, tidy that unkempt bathroom or catch up on exercise or relaxation. So why not also use this sacred day to get a jump start on the meal game for your busy week ahead? Disorganization when it comes to your weekly meals will not only cost you precious time from frequent visits to the corner store or cafeteria and money from all that takeout or last-minute lunch pickups, but over the long term, when it happens habitually, it can also cost you your health. By creating your own meals you will know exactly what is going into your food and what is (thankfully) being left out. Our menu-prep suggestions will help you save time, money and improve your overall health and well-being.

For straining small items like rice and quinoa, a sieve with finer holes, such as this one, is the way to go. Its long handle in a burst of bright green is made of rubber to help prevent it from getting too hot. Bonus: It comes with a free bag for making homemade nut milks.

What's Omega-7 and do I need it? Recently, I’ve been hearing buzz about “omega-7s.” I’ve heard of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9, but what the heck is omega-7? Omega-7 is a fatty acid known as palmitoleic acid. It’s got a lot of potential health benefits, though the research is nowhere near as extensive as the research on, say, omega-3s. Nonetheless, it’s becoming a popular supplement. Palmitoleic acid began to get some serious attention when studies at Harvard University showed that people with the highest circulating levels of the fatty acid had an amazing 60% lower incidence of diabetes compared with those who had the lowest levels. People with higher levels of omega-7 also had a lower body mass index (BMI), smaller waist circumference, lower triglycerides and lower inflammation. And a study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic and Xyrion Medical Institute showed that 210 milligrams per day of omega-7 reduced C-reactive protein (CRP) levels – an important measure of overall inflammation – by an impressive 44%.
The omega-7 sold today as a supplement comes from either fish such as salmon or from a plant known as sea buckthorn. One excellent, widely available brand is Barlean’s Heart Remedy.
Someone told me that citrus bergamot is a really great supplement for heart health. I’d never heard of it. What does it do? A number of studies show that citrus bergamot supplements can lower cholesterol. But in my opinion, lowering cholesterol is the least important thing citrus bergamot does. Citrus bergamot is an extract from bergamot, a kind of orange that grows mainly in the Calabria region of Italy. The fruit itself is slightly bitter and sour, but there are compounds in it that have been found to have some important health benefits, which is why they’ve found their way into supplements. The emerging research is pretty impressive.
Though most people get excited about its cholesterol-lowering properties, what’s more important – at least in my view – is that it also lowers triglycerides and raises HDL (“good”) cholesterol. By lowering triglycerides – an independent risk for heart disease – it automatically improves your triglyceride-to-HDL ratio, which has been shown to be a major predictor for heart disease and obesity. To be effective, a citrus bergamot supplement has to have a high percentage of polyphenols. One brand that meets the polyphenol criteria is ResVitále Bergamot Cholesterol Support ($45, gnc.com).

I’m reading everywhere that eating fat helps you lose weight. This seems counterintuitive. Can you explain? Glad to. The myth that eating fat makes you fat has persisted for decades, and in my not-so-humble opinion it is one of the reasons for the obesity epidemic. If that doesn’t seem to make sense right now, it will when you consider the effect food has on hormones. Remember, everything that has to do with weight is controlled by hormones – they’re totally in charge of the weight gain/weight loss roller coaster. The main hormone responsible for weight gain is insulin, which is why it’s known as the “fat-storage hormone.” (How’s that for a “duh”?) Insulin goes up (a lot) whenever you eat carbohydrates. It goes up a little when you eat protein. But eating fat doesn’t even budge the needle on insulin secretion. That’s why eating less carbs and eating more fat is frequently a great strategy for weight loss. You just have to make sure it’s the right kind of fat – clean, not toxic. (If you want more details on clean vs. toxic fat, see Smart Fat: Eat More Fat, Lose More Weight, Get Healthy Now (HarperOne, 2016.)

Don’t be fooled by the simple ingredients list in this salad – it has big flavor from crunchy pine nuts and fragrant fresh basil. A mandoline helps slice the zucchini as thin as possible, but you can also use a knife if you prefer. For added color, try adding cherry tomatoes if you have some on hand.

Sweet, juicy grilled peaches add a lovely warm-weather flair to this salad packed to the brim with beautiful vegetables.

This recipe yields a generous amount of dressing – either toss the desired amount of dressing to coat the salad lightly right before serving, or serve the dressing alongside so your guests can dress it themselves. Or, you can go the route that many traditionalists take in the Midwest – they pour on enough dressing to lightly coat the salad (we suggest using about half of the dressing) and set it in the fridge to allow the dressing to trickle down and coat the veggies.

You’ll save time (and need fewer ingredients) by using one spicy dressing as both a marinade for the fish and a dressing for the slaw. There’s plenty of room for play with this recipe – turn up the heat by adding more sriracha or jalapeño peppers, or toss in handfuls of chopped cilantro and mint for extra freshness. Instead of a grill pan, you can cook the fish on your barbecue or broil on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Better-Energy 7 NATURAL SOURCES FOR SLIMMING AND SWIMMING BY SARAH TUFF DUNN
Swimsuit season is here once again, and this year’s your chance to focus not just on your hourglass ﬁgure, but also on how your ﬁgure actually feels once you dive into the pool or start splashing in the waves. These natural sources reduce belly bloat and give you a boost of energy for all-around wellness, no matter your body shape.
“It’s all about the gut,” says Taz Bhatia, MD, the founder and director of CentreSpringMD in Atlanta, Georgia, and author of The 21-Day Belly Fix (Zinc Ink, 2014). “Research continues to pile on showing how the balance of gut bacteria – our microbiome – determines our response to stress and insulin regulation. Adding probiotics can help balance gut bacteria and reduce belly bloat and abdominal weight,” she says. Recent studies have also found that probiotics help with irritable bowel syndrome. Slim pickings: Yogurt, miso soup, a highquality probiotic supplement and fermented pickles (brined in salt and water).
2. Citrus fruits. “The high vitamin C in citrus fruits can help lower cortisol,” says Dr. Bhatia, “improving the stress response and boosting the immune system.” That’s backed up by several studies, including one study published in Psychopharmacology where German researchers asked 120 healthy young adults to complete a public speaking task and math problems. Before completing the tasks, half of the participants were given either three daily doses of 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C or a placebo. The vitamin C group experienced the most resilience, saw lower blood pressure and bounced back from stressful situations faster than those with low levels of the vitamin. Slim pickings: Grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, clementines, lemons and limes, miso soup and a high-quality probiotic supplement.
4. Lavender. As a mom of two who
3. Lactose-free dairy products. If you’re of African, Asian, Mexican or Native American descent, there’s a good chance you’ve stopped producing lactase, the enzyme that digests milk. If your ancestry is northern European, you probably have lactase, with only around a 2% chance of being lactose intolerant. Any way you slice it, lactose intolerance means that dairy products can leave you feeling like a cow when you can’t digest. Slim pickings: Almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Whole Milk Plain Yogurt (it’s got another double-whammy in probiotics and protein, too).
works full-time and works out a lot, I keep a lavender candle on my bedside table and regularly bathe in lavender-infused bath salts specifically so I can sleep better at night. And my instincts are right. “Leptin, insulin and somatostatin are all hormones that regulate weight,” says Dr. Bhatia, “and without consistent sleep, weight becomes an issue – regardless of diet and exercise.” Slim pickings: Lavender oil – dab on pillows and pajamas.
PHOTO DARREN KEMPER, FOOD AND PROP STYLING TERRY SCHACHT
5. Mushrooms and mushroom supplements. As Dr. Bhatia explains, mushrooms play a role in insulin regulation as well, supporting the endocrine system and hormonal balance. “They’re helpful in slimming the belly,” she says, “the first sign of abdominal weight.” SLIM PICKINGS: Shiitake, which also has vitamin D, and porcini, for its anti-inflammatory properties.
6. Omega-3s. Can serving salmon for dinner help keep you slimmer? Provided you practice portion control, yes. A study in Diabetes & Metabolism has found that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the kind found in fatty fish and in supplements, reduces the way stress hormones activate your adrenal glands. And when your stress hormones and sympathetic nervous system are stable, you’re less likely to feel the effects of excess cortisol (the primary stress hormone) as extra weight around the midsection. SLIM PICKINGS: Flaxseed oil, salmon, chia seeds and nuts.
7. GREEN TEA. A study in The Journal of Nutrition found that consuming green tea enhances the way exercise reduces abdominal fat. “Green tea contains antioxidants and polyphenols that also help with insulin regulation, resulting in weight loss,” adds Dr. Bhatia. Slim pickings: Yogi Green Tea Pure Green, Teavana Sencha Jade Reserve Green Tea.

HOW TO LIVE A ZERO-WASTE LIFE: SKIP THE LANDFILL IN 5 EASY STEPS
Unscented fragrance additives for women and men
• ½ cup full-fat sour cream (TRY: Organic Valley Sour Cream) • 1⁄3 cup unsalted pistachios, roughly chopped
TWO: In a small saucepan, vigorously whisk egg yolks and remaining 2 tbsp coconut sugar until thickened, 1 minute. Add buttermilk and whisk to combine. Set over medium-low heat and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until mixture thickens and coats back of spoon, 5 to 7 minutes (do not boil). Set aside to cool to room temperature.
STRAWBERRIES & CREAM
Lighter than ice cream but creamier than sorbet, this sweet-tart recipe using sour cream and yogurt is the ultimate indulgence – with or without an ice cream maker.
Strawberry Pistachio Frozen Yogurt MAKES 6 CUPS. HANDS-ON TIME: 20 MINUTES. TOTAL TIME: 1 HOUR, 20 MINUTES (PLUS FREEZING TIME).
• ½ cup plus 2 tbsp coconut sugar, divided • 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract • 1⁄8 tsp sea salt
• 3 large egg yolks
• 1 lb strawberries, hulled and quartered (about 4 cups)
• 1 cup buttermilk
• 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
THREE: In a blender, combine strawberries and juice, buttermilk mixture, yogurt and sour cream. Purée until smooth, 30 to 45 seconds. FOUR: Pour mixture into an 8 x 8 x 3-inch metal baking pan and transfer to freezer. Stir every 30 minutes. When mixture thickens (about 1 hour), stir in pistachios and return to freezer. Continue stirring mixture every 30 minutes until firm enough to scoop, about 2½ to 3 hours total freezing time. (Alternatively, process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.) (NOTE: This recipe is best eaten fresh after the last stirring. However, you can freeze it for up to 1 week, removing from freezer a few minutes before serving to let it soften slightly.) NUTRIENTS PER SERVING (½ CUP): CALORIES: 144, TOTAL FAT: 7 g, SAT.
