When I first started consciously cooking healthier for my family, I quickly found that I needed a flow of new ideas.
The internet, with it's myriad of websites (like this beauty you are currently reading!) and resources (there's almost too many nowadays!) almost overwhelmed me into inaction. Can anyone relate to "idea overwhelm?"
So, for my healthy cooking needs, I turned to the old friends I had been relying on for information for years...magazines!
From the time I was old enough to look at pictures, I have loved magazines.
The smell, the feel of the slick pages that don't muss with my fingers, the pages and pages and pages full of vibrant colored-pictures, and the unending flow of up-to-the minute information - all packed into those wonderful little mini-books!
To this day, I still squeal with delight when the mail arrives, and a magazine is cushioned between all the bills stuffed into our mailbox!
Today in this post, I'm giving you the breakdown of my favorite healthy cooking magazines. Hopefully you'll find that one or two of them suit your fancy as well!
Eating Well Magazine
This is a monthly magazine that not only boasts dozens of new recipes and cooking tips each issue, but also publishes well-researched and easy-read health articles. I usually gain at least 2-3 new practical recipes from each issue (the reason it's not more is because many of them are just too complicated or involved to make my busy-mom list!) The well-rounded offerings from this magazine are great - whether your approach to healthy cooking is vegetarian, clean-eating, or any other type, this magazine has something you can use!
Whole Living Magazine
This beauty of a magazine is from Martha Stewart's publishing, and is a great resource for those interested in the environmentally-friendly, sustainable approach on healthy cooking and eating. It is also great for the whole-life aspect, as it teaches about greener living, including body care, home care, and more.
Healthy Cooking Magazine
I love the simplicity and focus of this magazine - "healthy cooking" is what it's called, so healthy cooking is what you get! Fun recipe challenges and contests to enter, dozens of great recipes (from beginner cooks to gourmet!) and vibrant, easy-to-follow how-to's, this magazine is a close second place to my top pick...
...drumroll please....and now, my absolute TOP HEALTHY COOKING MAGAZINE!!!
