"Clean Eating" magazine
- poptart Jul 4, 2008 08:33 PM
I just picked up my first copy of it and was excited by what appeared to be a magazine devoted to healthy but delicious food.
However, "Clean Eating" left me cold. After reading the whole thing I feel like it mentions brand names a bit too much and is written around product placements.
Since this is the first issue I've read I was wondering what others thought.
Also, what magazines/publications do you tend to read for good recipes that are more on the healthy side?
Not the ones that constantly call for fat-free cheeses and artificial sugar substitutes....rather, using seasonal ingredients and various staples (i.e. not just wheat pasta but other grains). While I like reading Cook's Illustrated and Saveur I feel that their recipes are not necessarily ones I'd make on a regular basis due to dietary restrictions (namely needing to limit refined grains, sugar and dairy).
There was a magazine a few years back that was very interesting (may have been vegetarian oriented, I am not sure) but have not seen it in a while so assume it is no longer in print. Sorry I can't remember its name!
re: coney with everything
coney, if you are referring to the Edible publications free at WF, I completely agree. I also enjoy Eating Well magazine enough to keep a subscrip. going. But the WWW is filled with outstanding healthy recipes, demonstrated and beautifully photographed, to keep me away from the magazine racks.
Thanks, I will look for "Edible". And yes, I have looked at Vegetarian Times over the years...not recently though so I will take another look.
I agree about the WWW. But sometimes it's nice to have the big pictures in print :-), especially since I don't have a printer at the moment. How different cooking is now with the WWW though..I am cooking a turkey breast, which I rarely do, and was able to look up cooking temp times on the web in seconds rather than thumb through a bunch of cookbooks searching for the info.
My thoughts are the same as yours. I was expecting something devoted to eating actual food, not food products.
Eating Well is pretty good. Cooking Light is a little too obsessed with the Cool Whip, if you ask me.
