Energize Your Life

Is there anything more enticing than the idea of having boundless energy? With personal energy being such a finite resource, we’re constantly trying to figure out how to conserve and harness energy to get through the tall orders of our days. 

There are three things that are my personal guarantee to soaring energy. Eight hours of sound sleep, a kick-ass workout four times a week and a diet as clean as possible. If any one of those pillars is missing, energy wanes noticeably. With a crazy schedule, the only one I can fully control that doesn’t fall victim to intense deadlines or the occasional sleepless night is the food I eat. 

So, what’s a max-energy eating plan look like? This issue is dedicated to them. Our special energizing section kicks off on page 36 and goes all the way to 78, where you’ll find a one-week meal plan replete with fresh seasonal produce, healthy fats, proteins and micronutrients to keep your blood sugar steady and your microbiome in top shape to process all these nutrients efficiently, for supercharged days.

And I don’t know about you, but when I limit grains, I feel like a superhero. We’ve got a week of grain-free meals on page 55 you can prep entirely on Sunday by rock star recipe developer Beth Lipton. I couldn’t even wait for the issue to be designed before hijacking her recipe for olive oil–poached cod and singing its praises all over my Instagram story. 

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, I embarked on a journey to remove all single-use plastics and share my experience with you. I was overwhelmed, devastated and then enlightened and inspired. Find out what happened here. And it’s Clean Choice Awards season, where we unveil the coolest, cleanest finds of the year. We engaged a reader panel of judges at a soiree of tasting and voting for a truly indisputable lineup of products. Find this year’s winners, starting on page 64.
