Why Modern-Day Foragers Want You to Eat Weeds for Dinner
Illustration by Natalya Balnova for TIME Thistles, a kind of flowering plant often covered in angry-looking prickles, are probably not an ingredient in any of your go-to recipes. But Katrina Blair wants you to try eating them anyway. “I love to take the root, fresh or dry, and blend them into a chai,” she says. She also recommends combining the greens with lemons, apples and water for a refreshing lemonade — just be sure to strain out the spikes, she warns.

Want To Live Longer? Study Suggests You Should Ditch Soda
This study, as well as other research on the connection between diet and sugary beverages and health risks, is observational and cannot show cause and effect. That’s a major limitation, researchers say, as it’s impossible to determine whether the association is due to a specific artificial sweetener, a type of beverage, obesity or another hidden health issue. “The cause behind these associations isn’t clear,” said Bergquist. “Other potential biological causes could be attributed to experimental evidence linking consumption of artificial sweeteners to sugar cravings, appetite stimulation ...

Want To Live Longer? Be An Optimist, Boston Researchers Say
(CNN) — You don’t have to be a Monty Python fan to whistle along with Eric Idle as he croons “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” while contemplating death on a cross. British satire aside, focusing on the upside of life could easily be the theme song for research focusing on a key component of longevity: optimism. Optimism doesn’t mean ignoring life’s stressors. But when negative things happen, optimistic people are less likely to blame themselves and more likely to see the obstacle as temporary or even positive. They also believe they have control over their fate and can create opp...

11 Best Foods For Your Immune System
The following story is excerpted from TIME’s special edition, 100 Most Healing Foods, which is available in stores, at the Meredith Shop and at Amazon.

Weekend Recipe: Almond-Crusted Chicken Schnitzel
When I was young, mum used to make the most delicious chicken schnitzel that would be devoured as soon as my sister and I arrived home from school. Mum would lightly coat thin pieces of chicken with a little seasoned flour, then dip them into lightly beaten eggs, followed by a final coating in breadcrumbs. Then she would cook the schnitzel with generous amounts of butter and a little olive oil until crisp, and serve with a generous helping of green beans or coleslaw. I’ve modified mum’s recipe and given it a “Healthy Chef” makeover. My chicken schnitzel is gluten free, paleo, high in protein and tak...

3 nutrients for a sharp, ageless brain
For decades mainstream medicine told us that dying neurons are the problem with an aging brain. But the difference between an old brain and a sharp, young brain isn’t just neurons… You see, mental function depends on two kinds of brain cells. Neurons are just half the story. In fact, when scientists studied Albert Einstein’s brain they found he had a wealth of “other” brain cells that accounted for his genius.  I’m talking about “glia,” or “glial” brain cells. Scientists have known about glial cells for a long time. But they thought they were just support ...
