  2. Tips to Eat Better at Restaurants

    Our friend James misses the pandemic lockdown. “That’s when I lost so much weight and got super-lean,” he says wistfully. “It’s too hard to eat right when I can go to restaurants and have huge servings. Too much temptation!” Forced eating at home might’ve made it easier for James, 60, to restrict his calories. Restaurants […]

  3. Healthy Recipe: Branzino with Asparagus and Scallions

    Branzino is a mild, flaky white fish from the Mediterranean Sea traditionally served whole, roasted, or grilled, with little more than a squeeze of lemon to accentuate its naturally sweet, delicate flesh. Due to overfishing, much of it nowadays is farm-raised, making it widely available throughout US markets. This recipe, adapted from one in Olga […]

  4. Healthy Recipe: Chicken Peperonata

    Peperonata is a rustic southern Italian dish of stewed sweet peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and other savory ingredients.

But it would be just as delicious paired with shrimp, fish, white beans, or tofu for a low-carb, […]

    Try this health-packed, one-bowl meal adapted from a recipe in Michelle Braxton’s “Supper with Love.” No fancy ingredients are needed.

  8. Healthy Recipe, Mediterranean Breakfast Couscous

    If you’re hankering for an energizing, delicious switch from your breakfast routine, Suzy Karadsheh has just the thing in “The Mediterranean Dish” — couscous!

  9. Healthy Recipe, Paprika Chicken

    Here’s a way to achieve juicy, crispy-all-over chicken without a rotisserie: Skip the pan and roast the chicken pieces directly on the oven rack. Rub the pieces with smoked paprika for a boost of bold Spanish flavor before popping them in the oven along with the pan of veggies, toss together a simple green salad while […]
