If you haven't already heard, Whole Living's very first cookbook just debuted. Power Foods is a great resource to have in your culinary arsenal as you dive into the new year with even healthier habits!
For the book, our editors compiled a food-minded set of the Ten Commandments, aptly called "the golden rules" for wholesome eating, and what I like to think of as the blueprint of the recipes we provide readers in every issue. The rule I'm particularly striving to follow this year?
Number 4: Think of fruits and vegetables in terms of the rainbow.
Why? Because you can always use another serving of vegetables! (And I certainly forget to meet the daily serving suggestion from time to time.)
After memorizing the "rules," work your way through the 150 delicious, good-for-you recipes and get a refresher on the 38 best foods to eat. Last night, I cooked the Soba Noodle, Tofu, and Vegetable Stir-Fry (pictured below) for my girlfriends and it was an absolute hit.
The recipe calls for soba noodles made of buckwheat flour, which are filled with protein and fiber and gluten-free. Almond butter replaces peanut (a traditional sauce base for stir-fries) for a rich flavor. So tasty--and makes for great leftovers for lunch.
Want a sneak peek? Check out our gallery of Winter Power-Foods tips and recipes from the book; at the end of the gallery, there's even a link to print a copy of the Golden Rules.
