Current Issue

September-coverThe old adage that failing to plan is planning to fail couldn’t be more true when it comes to clean eating. Packing sufficient healthy options you’ll actually want to eat is crucial to feeling and looking your best. That’s what this issue is all about: Planning to eat consistently well and eating clean within a budget. Wouldn’t you agree that these are two of the toughest things in life to do?

Start on page 46 where our Super Savings Section kicks off with 53 utterly impressive recipes costing $2.50 or less per plate. Staff favorites include the Kung Pao Chicken, Chile Chicken Enchiladas, the Breakfast Cookies and Bangkok Curry Bowls, which are basically cleaned-up instant noodles with a Thai twist that you can take anywhere.

Turn to page 42 for a spread of brilliant items you can prep entirely on Sunday to mix and match for endless snacks and meals for the rest of the week. And never get stuck feeling guilty and sluggish after lunch again by making and taking the amazing and portable recipes that are gracing our cover on page 46.

Just when you thought 
we couldn’t make life 
any easier for you, we 
also went ahead and bumped up the type size on all of our recipes in response to feedback that it was a touch small. I hope this makes your clean cooking time that much more enjoyable!

Plus, I’m thrilled to introduce the Clean Eating Academy, CE’s very own online cooking school, to help take your health-focused career or home-cooking skills to impressive new heights. Read a Q&A with our veteran instructor!
