In early 2017, Bon Appétit Magazine launched a new site to celebrate food that is both delicious and makes you feel good. The name that stuck was Healthyish. Now editor Amanda Shapiro is using the platform to transform how we inhabit and engage with the confusing world of “wellness”—from what we put in our pantries to what we put on our skin.
We wanted to know more about how Amanda is reframing the wellness conversation and what sustainable food means to her.
How do you describe what Healthyish encompasses?
Healthyish is a site about wellness through the lens of food. We are the little sister of Bon Appétit Magazine, so we work out of the Bon Appétit offices and our recipes come out of the test kitchen. But our lens is really outward—Bon Appétit serves the home cook, and we aim to do that too, but we also look beyond healthy eating into healthy living and wellness.
