Detox Cred: Long used for healing in Asia, meaty shiitakes are one of the best foods to eat for health, boasting a special combination of antioxidants that boost immune function and lower oxidative stress in the body. Try substituting mushrooms for meat in meals -- it slashes calories and improves your well-being without leaving you hungry, according to a study in the journal Appetite.

recipe

This recipe is adapted from Sarah Copeland's forthcoming book, "Feast" (Chronicle Books).This recipe is a brilliant way to work both greens and fish into your repertoire. The key player is gremolata, an uncooked green sauce; here, arugula gives it a mouthwatering peppery punch that contrasts with tender roasted potatoes, yellow squash, and mild Pacific halibut. The secret to getting that restaurant-quality sear on the fish is very simple: Cook it without turning it over, first on the stove top and then in the oven -- just to finish it off. Perfection.
