  1. Healthy Recipe, Cranberry-Orange Mimosas

    Mimosas are the quintessential brunch cocktail: simple, light, fruity, and festive. Here’s how to give that basic formula — one part orange juice, two parts sparkling wine — a seasonal twist. Frozen cranberries act as “ice;” sprigs of rosemary add an earthy note; a splash of orange liqueur raises the spirit.  Any sparkling wine will […]

  2. Study Links Junk Food to Brain Decline

    Packaged, ultra-processed foods are convenient and tasty. They’re handy around the house for the grandkids or snacking. But they’re not good for us – not our bodies or brains. We’re talking hot dogs, burgers, sausages, cookies, cakes, doughnuts, and the like. You already know they contribute to obesity and other negative physical effects. Now a […]

  3. Healthy Recipe, Avocado Green Goddess Dip (or Dressing)

    Every holiday buffet table could use a few healthy choices, and a platter of colorful raw veggies is the easiest way. In this light dip, inspired by one in “Wine Style” by Kate Leahy (Ten Speed, $22), avocado replaces the mayo that gives classic green goddess dressing its creamy richness; a little anchovy and a generous […]

  4. Healthy Recipe, Roast Chicken Thighs with Spiced Cauliflower, Cranberries, and Herbs

    Roast chicken seems to cry for potatoes, rice, or some other starchy side. But cauliflower can stand in as a hearty nutrient-packed companion for a fraction of the calories and carbs. In this recipe adapted from Ruby Tandoh’s “Cook as You Are” (Knopf, $35), the florets roast in a pan with skin-on thighs rubbed with […]

  5. Healthy Recipe, Tuscan-Style Shrimp with White Beans

    This classic Mediterranean combo is as simple and healthy as it is delicious. A green salad and a loaf of crusty bread are all you need to turn this 30-minute one-skillet meal into a company feast. Variations abound; this one is adapted from “Milk Street: Cook What You Have” by Christopher Kimball (Voracious, $35). Serves […]

  6. Healthy Recipe, Beef & Broccoli

    Even those of us leaning more toward a plant-based diet these days feel the need to give in to our carnivore cravings now and then. This recipe, adapted from one in Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Fast” (Harvest, $40), balances that iron-rich animal protein with an ample quantity of hearty, vitamin-loaded broccoli in one quick, […]

  7. Healthy Recipe, Skillet Shrimp Scampi with Corn, Tomatoes, and Peas

    The classic sauce that makes shrimp scampi so sinfully delicious consists of butter, garlic, and wine, which meld in the pan with the juices from the shrimp while they cook. Quite often, it arrives on a platter in a mountain of pasta, with plenty of crusty bread for sopping up every buttery drop. This recipe […]

  8. Healthy Recipe, Yogurt, and Frozen Berry Breakfast Parfait

    Use frozen blueberries, raspberries, or cherries here. All are packed with flavor and nutrients. And they begin to thaw to a sorbet-like consistency almost immediately. Combining them with thick, creamy Greek yogurt gives you the sensation of eating ice cream — plus protein and calcium. Choose plain so you can control the sweetness. Make it […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Pork with Blueberries and Rosemary

    Here’s an impressive centerpiece for a dinner party that’s low in fat and high in flavor yet easy and economical enough to serve on any weeknight. It’s lightly adapted from one in “The Red Truck Bakery Farmhouse Cookbook: Sweet and Savory Comfort Food” by Brian Noyes (Potter, $28), which calls for pork tenderloin. But if […]

  10. Healthy Recipe, Watermelon-Coconut Cooler

    Coconut water is a more flavorful alternative to plain water that’s also loaded with potassium and other essential nutrients. Watermelon is another hydration superstar with these added benefits. Here they’re blended with a splash of citrus into one all-natural rejuvenating drink with just the right balance of tart and sweet. Top it off with a splash of […]
