The new year comes with brand new resolutions that we’re hoping to stick to throughout 2021. If one of your resolutions was to get fit or start incorporating more veggies into your meal rotation, you’re definitely not alone. Changing your daily routine can be difficult when you don’t know where to start. If your goal is to eat healthier you’re in luck because Martha Stewart just dropped the most aesthetically pleasing salad we’ve seen and you’ll want to whip this up ASAP.

The chef shared the dish on her Instagram, and wrote: “Who could resist this colorful salad made with a whole lemon and whole-grain mustard? The sharp, acidic ingredients are balanced out by fresh mint and bitter radicchio for a perfectly balanced bite. Get the recipe at the link in bio! 📷: @behindthedawn”

This irresistible looking salad is rather simple to make and includes radicchio (of course), lemon, and fresh mint leaves. The serving size for the recipe is two so you can save some for the next day, or you can even eat it later in the day. You should expect to only spend about 25 minutes whipping up the two-step meal, which is just one more reason we’re loving this salad.

Since you’ll be working with one head of radicchio and breaking it into individual leaves, the chef notes on her website that “soaking the radicchio in cold water helps curb the leaves’ naturally bitter edges.”

Now that you have this Stewart’s salad to make, your goals are becoming that much more possible to achieve. Trust us, you’ll be happy you took the step to make it happen.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
