EatingWell has been at the forefront of the healthy-eating movement for more than 30 years. Through our award-winning magazine and high-quality, content-rich website, we publish deliciously healthy recipes like Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower and Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Pesto & Shrimp and healthy cooking how-to guides, such as How to Cook Quinoa and The Right Way to Prepare Oatmeal and 5 Tips for Making It Better.
Our authoritative, science-based journalism—such as 8 Ways to Follow the Mediterranean Diet for Better Health and The Best Breakfast Foods for Weight Loss—helps our readers make better-informed food choices. Our easy-to-follow meal plans are designed by registered dietitians and food experts to help you lose weight, eat clean, get more fiber, go vegan, vegetarian and more.
We are based in Vermont—where the magazine was originally founded in 1990—where we are surrounded by a robust local, sustainable food culture, farm-to-table restaurants and a renowned craft beer and cider scene.
At EatingWell, our mission is to help make healthy happen every day. We provide the inspiration and information people need to make healthy eating a way of life. Our experts offer delicious recipes, balanced nutritional advice, thought-provoking stories and new ways to make healthy choices more exciting. We are about moderation and balance—not strict rules or fad diets—because for healthy eating to become a way of life, it should be accessible, sustainable, inspiring and—above all—delicious.

EatingWell's ever-growing collection of recipes and meal plans are carefully developed and rigorously tested in the EatingWell Test Kitchen by our team of culinary professionals and registered dietitians. Before we publish a recipe, it must meet three criteria:
First, it has to taste good.
Next, it needs to meet our nutrition parameters. We analyze the nutrition data of every recipe we develop and carefully consider each ingredient we call for to ensure that we are making recipes that not only taste good, but that are also good for you.
And finally, the recipe has to be dependable—meaning that when you are making it at home, the recipe is easy to follow and it works. Every time.
The EatingWell team includes industry-leading food and nutrition editors, registered dietitians, expert Test Kitchen staff and designers who produce award-winning and engaging content across multitude platforms. Our work has earned more than 50 national and international awards for writing, editing, art direction, creative marketing and publishing excellence.
