Moroccan Grilled Salmon
Tangy plain yogurt mixed with the classic ingredients for chermoula—a Moroccan spice mix—serves as both the marinade and the sauce in this salmon dish. If you like your food on the spicy side, add a pinch of cayenne to the mixture.

Simple Sauteed Spinach
Sautéed spinach (or any greens) with garlic and a squeeze of lemon (or vinegar) is a simple formula that lets spinach shine and will never go out of favor.

Almond Honey Power Bar
Great for breakfast on the go! Golden roasted nuts, seeds and oats are enveloped by flavorful almond butter in these delectably chewy, no-fuss energy bars. Unrefined turbinado sugar adds a deep caramelly undertone. Feel free to use light brown sugar instead. Bars stored at room temperature will be softer than those that are refrigerated.

Cold Almond and Garlic Soup
Figs and almonds are two very Mediterranean ingredients. Together they make this simple but interesting cold soup--a glimpse of what people ate in the south of Spain before the introduction of new ingredients from the Americas.

Quick Roast Chicken and Root Vegetables
Roasted chicken in 45 minutes? No problem. This technique of starting bone-in chicken breasts on the stovetop and finishing them in a hot oven with vegetables gets a hearty dinner on the table in a hurry. While everything roasts, you still have time to make a quick pan sauce with shallot and Dijon mustard. Serve with a spinach salad.

Though the models of Victoria's Secret's yearly fashion show are naturally beautiful, they don't come by their perfect bodies by chance. Just like the rest of us, these gorgeous models have to work hard to keep fit and stay slim.
We got the scoop from our friends at StyleList, who went behind the scenes of last night's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and chatted with Miranda Kerr, Australian supermodel and wife of Orlando Bloom, to see what she eats to stay healthy.
What are some of your tips and tricks as far as staying healthy goes?
"Oh, we could talk about it for hours. But to sum it up, I know what works for me. I am very much into cold-pressed green juice. I also have a protein shake that I drink that is organic rice protein with goji berries ... I love avocado. I love blueberries. I love eggs. I love grilled fish. I love spinach. I love garlic. I love organic, slow roast chicken. Coconut oil is great. Macadamia nut oil is great. Almonds are amazing. I mean, we could be here all day. I love food, but very healthy food."
What's your favorite meal?
"One of my favorite meals is a slow roast chicken. I roast the chicken with a whole bunch of garlic [and] at least two or three onions, chopped up. I put some turmeric in there and roast it for seven hours."
