12 Healthy Living Secrets From Some of the Healthiest People We Know

Sometimes taking care of your body can seem like a huge task that no normal person can manage: Eat conscientiously! Exercise constantly! Sleep eight hours! Meditate like your life depends on it! It’s enough to make your head spin. Thankfully, you don’t have to be perfect—you just have to try a little bit every day. Here’s how some of our super-healthy (but not superhuman) friends manage.

Take a fresh look at frozen foods

Find sweet bargains in the coolest aisle with our handy guide

Thanks to new flavors and technological advances, many foods in your grocery store's freezer aisle are delivering better taste, texture and nutrition. Whether you're looking for ingredients, side dishes or full meals, use these strategies to dodge the duds and discover the deals. 


2012 Healthy Eating Awards

 FROZEN PIZZA: Amy's Cheese & Pesto Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust (360 calories, 18g fat per 4.7oz)

Savory pesto sent this pie to the front of the line. "Pesto wins every time, but i usually think of it as a greasy splurge," a taster said. Not this eat: A third of the pie has only 4g saturated fat.


Cleanest Freeze

Amy's Black Bean Tamale Verde
Clean frozen entrées aren't easy to find but this savory bean dish, wrapped in organic masa and steamed with a side of organic Spanish brown rice, is vegan, low fat, light in sodium and gluten free!


A Day in the Food Life of Carrie Underwood

Onstage, she's sparkly and glamorous, with a powerful voice befitting the title of her new album, Blown Away. At home in Nashville, the 29-year-old reveals a life full of healthy habits, puppy love and cozy QT.

Doing the weekly shopping, I stock up on stir-fry kits, Amy's meatless burgers, and armoloads of onions and garlic. I put onions and garlic in everything. Ack- as usual, I forgot my coupons. (Yes, I do clip them!)

 


Recipe for Success

Rachel and Andy Berliner were happily married and expecting their first child in 1987 when Rachel pulled a muscle in her leg. Unable to shop or prepare home-cooked dinners, she sent Andy to the local health-food store in search of frozen organic meals. All he could find was a bland lasagna.


Fergie’s Favorite Indulgence

Fergie said this on the Rachael Ray show 3/25, and  was quoted in USA Today on  3/27 - a glorious two-fer!

"And her favorite indulgence? "Amy's Enchiladas, with cheddar cheese." She especially loves the low-sodium version. "So I'm thinking OK, I can have it, it's got the beans and the corn inside. Well, not when you add four pieces of your own sharp cheddar cheese slices on the top, and put it in the microwave! So yeah, that's definitely a cheat for me and something that I did last week a couple times."


Snacking, LHJ Style

Here in the LHJ offices, we are an army of snackers. My seat directly next to our communal snack basket confirms this – in the hours just before lunch and sometime after 3pm, when blood sugar levels begin to fall, LHJ staffers (see them in action, to the right) start wandering over to inspect the various bags, tins and boxes on offer. Between product samples, frequent test kitchen recipe results, and generous foodie staff members, we’re lucky to have a pretty bottomless supply of treats.


South of the Border Shopping List

6. Refried Beans
Amy's Vegetarian Organic Refried Beans with Green Chiles.
These beans are cooked, mashed, then fried. Vegetarians read the labels - many brands are made with lard.

Best New Low-Cal Meals

To keep your diet resolve, you don't have to settle for a soggy deli salad for a quick lunch or dinner. We screened 294 frozen entrées, accepting only those that came in under 400 calories, had no trans fat, and met nutritionist-approved limits for sodium and saturated fat. We ended up with 21 newly launched single-serve meals. Then over the course of three weeks, we handed out nearly 400 boxes and steam bags and had our crew of lunchtime volunteers nuke and nibble, score, and write detailed reviews. They proclaimed these 13 dishes the tastiest of the bunch.
