Any suggestions for magazines I can subscribe to that provide healthy recipes? Apart from the CrossFit related ones ;)

I was looking at "Cooking Light", looks good.

http://www.epicurious.com has thousands of excellent recipes with reviews and suggestions of ways to modify them to make them tastier, faster, or whatever. That said, most of the recipies, being from either Bon Appetit or Gourmet magazines, are not zone-friendly.

However, if you don't have a zone-friendly food list memorized, the NutritionData website (http://www.nutritiondata.com/index.html) is pretty great for finding nutritional information on food. It has a great "pantry" feature, to which you can add foods and then create recipes. It then evaluates the overall nutrition in the recipe as a whole, with one of those nutrition charts like you see on packages of food in the U.S.

It's not zone-ideal, but when used in combination, they're a good way to get lots of good recipe choices and find out exactly what nutrition you're looking at. So with some time investment, you could build a nice little library of excellent zone-friendly recipes, I imagine.

My wife cooks from "Cooking Light" about two or three times a week. Everything she has made from that magazine tastes great. It helps that she is also a great cook! The recipes are easily modified to fit however you eat (zone, paleo, etc..)

Also check out a magazine called "Eating Well". It is the healthy (according to the magazine) version of "Cook's Illustrated".

I've checked out a few sites and I must say, I'm very impressed with Cooking Light. I went to the quick and easy section and have copied well over 20 recipes to make. All that can be easily modified to fit zone parameters.

Question; is the nutritional content farely accurate on those recipes? It would appear so.

Frank, the South Beach cookbooks are surprisingly good, needs to be tweaked a little for the Zone, but true fine cuisine.

Wow, today has been great! All my meals and snacks have been recipes from Cooking Light! hahah, so far so good -- but I'm stuffed.

Chicken Marsala, Monte Cristo Sandwich, Wasabi Salmon and making some Mocha Pudding for tomorrow. I feel like i've cheated so bad, but... it can't be that bad :-)

There are so many recipes on the internet that I don't have to worry about any recipe mag. Do anyone here know any recipe sites for bulking up?
