    I’m a bit of a magazine junkie. These days I subscribe to Everyday with Rachael Ray, Clean Eating, Self, and if professional journals count, Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Love them all!

    My favorite magazine is Real Simple. It’s got a little bit of everything. Right now we also get Snowboarder Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Golf Digest and Women Health.

    Your salad looked very tasty!

    Bugle is my favorite, along with maps to discover new places to visit and roads to drive.

    Tempeh is such a great way to add protein to a salad, and sautéed tempeh is a good substitute for bacon (ever so much healthier, of course). Favorite magazines? Hmm, the Atlantic, National Geo, and Skating.
