No it's not a glossy magazine hot off the presses, it's Time-Warner's Thrive@eats site where you'll find enough health and nutrition information to keep those New Year's resolutions to stay fit and eat right from becoming dissolutions.

Formatted like a newsstand periodical, Thrive@eats combines feature articles with an advice column ("Dear Joan"), recipe database and cookbook reviews. To get around, either follow the links on each page or use the contents page as your jumping off point. Think "magazine" and you won't get lost.

While some articles appear to be written expressly for Thrive@eats, others are compiled from Health magazine or Sunset to name a few. Interesting and informative are nutrition-related articles on fighting stress by changing your eating habits, relieving fatigue through foods and exploring the connection between a diet rich in fiber and a healthy heart. Want a little entertainment? Read the article on Olestra (yuck, I had no idea)!

In addition to a keyword-searchable recipe database, a recipe finder and a cookbook sampler loaded with reviews, Thrive@eats offers the Chile Chooser, a photographic glossary of chiles with suggested uses, a brief description of flavor and an accompanying Heat Meter. Rather inventive! Utilize it as one sure way to make you sweat.
