Best food magazines for Healthy Foodies
The third one on my list is just a wonderful read every month and is one of my favorite things that comes in the mail. Unlike the first two, it has a welcome focus on wine, and on top of that includes fascinating pieces on travel, from a foodie perspective.
1. Eating Well takes very little advertising, is beautifully designed and produced, and strikes a pleasing balance in its approach to food by leaning heavily towards health-oriented recipes without going overboard toward asceticism. The articles about food trends, including an encouraging emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibility, makes this magazine a standout.
2. Clean Eating is a relaitvely new discovery for me, but it's become a solid favorite after just a few issues as a subscriber. This one is less available on newsstands, at least around where I live, so you almost have to subscribe to keep up with it. The health orientation is a little more strict than with either of the two others, and many of the articles focus on coping with diet-influencing health conditions such as diabetes or gluten intolerance. Worth a look!
3. Food & Wine is my absolute favorite among the mainstream food mags. Although many of the recipes are too rich for my kitchen, it's possible to make lighter versions with a few substitutions here and there. I've gotten a lot of great ideas from this magazine. And I really love the wine articles and travel pieces, some of which I rip out and save for our own roamings.
