We’ve put together another delicious issue of EatingWell magazine—our March/April 2014 issue is packed with 46 new recipes that use the best ingredients of early spring. Take, for example, our cover models: colorful radishes. Who knew radishes could be so versatile? You can roast them, slice them thin for gorgeous tea sandwiches (pictured) and blend them into a creamy soup. There’s a feature story on grass-fed beef that includes recipes by meat master Bruce Aidells that you won’t want to miss: Rib-Eye Steaks with Piquillo Pepper Sauce!

Community Question: 
What recipes in the March/April issue are you looking forward to trying?

If you really want to see that number on the scale drop, what you put in your mouth matters most. People who simply cut calories to slim down lose about 2 pounds a week, says a study in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders. At the same time, people who exercise but don’t restrict calories drop less than half a pound each week.

Eating clean also means drinking clean. You can still have some alcohol if you want—but stay within the recommended daily limit of one drink for women and two for men. One drink equals 5 ounces of wine, 1½ ounces of liquor or 12 ounces of beer.

Most people eat far too many added sugars. The easiest way to clean up the sugars in your diet is to limit obvious sources of sugar like soda, candy and baked goods. But don’t stop there—healthy foods like yogurt, tomato sauce and cereal can be “sneaky” sources of added sugars. Spend some time today reading labels. Choose plain or no-sugar-added varieties of your favorite foods, and check the ingredients to make sure sugar either isn’t listed at all, or is listed toward the bottom of the ingredient list.

Whole grains have beneficial nutrients that refined grains are missing, like magnesium (which helps the body produce energy) and fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer. Trade your refined grains for whole grains by eating oatmeal for breakfast, swapping out white pasta, flour and bread for whole-wheat versions, or trying a new-to-you whole grain, like quinoa, freekah or barley.

Most Americans fall short of reaching the average recommended daily amount of 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables—which means they’re missing out on key vitamins, minerals and fiber. Get more vegetables in your diet by adding them to sandwiches, pastas or stir-fries. Try starting your day with vegetables at breakfast (like in this Greek omelet packed with spinach) and be sure to add veggies to your dinner tonight, like in this salad-topped pizza.

Clean eating doesn’t mean giving up meat entirely, but cutting back on meat helps you cut back on saturated fat, which can raise your cholesterol and is bad for your heart. Today, try getting your protein from other sources, such as tofu, eggs, beans, yogurt and nuts.

Americans typically eat 1.5 times the recommended sodium limit of 2,300 mg. According to new research, the average restaurant meal at a full-service restaurant delivered more than 3,500 mg of sodium (yikes!). That’s why cooking healthier meals is key to limiting your salt intake. You can boost flavor without reaching for the salt shaker (or at least use less salt) by using herbs and spices and adding vinegar or citrus to foods. Try a squeeze of lemon on fish or chicken, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil over salad, or dried herbs like oregano and rosemary in soups.

You can greatly improve your diet and clean it up in a snap by cutting back on processed and packaged foods, which can be full of sodium, added sugars and sometimes ingredients we can’t pronounce. Try cooking up a stir-fry at home instead of getting takeout, or making homemade pizza instead of frozen.
