The Anti-F&W Diet

 

Count political super-blogger Andrew Sullivan among the hopeful proponents of Soylent, the crowdfunded, could-not-be-more-disturbingly-named liquid that promises to free its users from the chore of consuming food. "I long for it," bemoaned Sullivan last night, explaining that he's just not that into eating. Some of Soylent's proponents say it makes them feel good and think more clearly, though Motherboard's Brian Merchant did experience some weakness and a complete inability to enjoy alcoholic beverages when he experimented with the diet for 30 days (though he also lost 10 pounds and generally felt "fine—even good"). He also tore desperately into fried chicken when his journalistic endeavor was finally complete.

F&W is all for eating healthy, emphasis on eating (and drinking—the Food & Wine Diet means something delicious and a glass of wine that add up to 600 calories or less). Tell us your strategies for getting good nutrition and living well using the #FWHealthy tag on Twitter, and your ideas could be featured in print. (How we may use your content.)

Healthy Italian Farmhouse Cooking: Zuppa Verde

Zuppa Verde

Every cook wants to know how to make this superb soup, and the reason is its simplicity. As in all Italian food, simplicity trumps all. A mixture of greens is great in the recipe, but if you just use escarole, so be it. I first had soup like this in Cervinia in northern Italy, on a spring ski trip. Small huts dotted the lower slopes of the ski resort so you could schuss up, eat a bowl of soup and ski off quickly. This is farmhouse cooking at its best. I think the bread makes the soup what it is. You tell me, but I can assure you that this will become a staple of your repertoire right away. SEE RECIPE »

We've done a few really great okra recipes over the years. The ones I love the most have been grilled or pan roasted until lightly charred and tender. The recipe I developed for our September three-ingredient story uses grilled okra that gets glazed with a simple dressing of Thai red curry paste, lime juice and olive oil. It's so easy and quick, it almost doesn't feel right to call it a recipe, but sometimes the simplest things can have the most complex flavors. SEE RECIPE »

The South Meets Spain

Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

Shrimp and Grits is one of my favorite all-time dishes. If you're willing to forgo long-cooking grits in favor of quick (not instant) grits, the dish is not only rich, flavorful, creamy and delicious, it's also superfast. I developed this recipe as part of my column on New Southern Classics (Ham Steak with Red Eye Gravy, Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, Etouffee). This is one of those Southern comfort foods that can be ungodly rich, with tons of cream, butter and cheese. I lightened it up considerably by taking out the cream, paring back the butter and cheese (it's still pretty cheesy) and folding in baby spinach to add a nutitious punch. One of my favorite Spanish tapas dishes is gambas al ajillo (shrimp with garlic and oil). I sort of tweaked it a bit by adding smoked paprika, which stands in for smoky bacon, and spooned it over the grits. I'm not a huge calorie counter, though I do watch what I eat. This one never leaves me feeling anything but satisfied and guilt-free. SEE RECIPE »
