There are contest-winning recipes all made from scratch and fast main courses that ease the suppertime rush. There are recipes for improving your skin by eating right and fighting the flu with food. There are short reviews and bites of information on energy drinks, gym bags, traveling, eating seasonally... and much more. Here's a short primer for each Healthy Cooking section what's (mostly) inside them this month.

Special This Issue — Features full of seasonal recipes and ideas for your body and your table, including our Contest-Winning Recipes. This month's from-scratch prizewinners prove the best things are homemade like the delectable grand prize-winning Butternut Squash and Pear Soup from Sarah Vasques of Milford, NH. The issue also includes "Great Food Better Skin" (in six easy steps), "Bring It. Serve It. Give It" (healthy holiday food fit for any festivity), and "Fighting Flu with Food" with soup and beyond.

The Blend — Consolidates short bites of information in one convenient up front section. Regular product segments include We Love It (this month on gym bags), Made You Cook (handy new kitchen gadgets), and Test Drive (energy drinks), while food features include Good to Grow (cooking with kids), Celebrate (a healthy, festive progressive dinner) and Traveling Light (taking a cruise without packing on pounds).

Lighten Up — Focuses on weight loss by cutting fat, calories and more through our Test Kitchen Makeovers (in this issue: holiday sides like creamed corn and sweet potato casserole), What I Won't Give Up (a reader's quest to keep her beloved croissants), and Comfort Food Diet, which will feature a filling all-day meal plan based on our bestselling book (pancakes, hamburger soup, and teriyaki pork, anyone?).

Quick & Easy — Helps families eat healthy in a hurry with Easy Healthy Everyday (this month, ten last-minute supper solutions like sweet 'n' sour chicken and gnocchi with white beans), Dinner in 30 (how about spicy shrimp wraps in under 30 minutes?), and 101 (a primer for perfect and healthy roasted veggies every time).

Made to Order — Caters to specific health needs: Custom Fit deals with allergies and other food issues (like this month's alternative recipes for people allergic to nuts), Eat to Beat Diabetes shows that dealing with the disease doesn't mean feeling deprived (like with our mini desserts), and Heart Smarts with heart healthy information and recipes too.

Success Story — Find inspiration and motivation in people like Jeffrey Jacobs of Waukesha, WI, who lost 110 pounds — all of the weight he put on since college and more. Each month readers like Jeffrey will share their stories and tips for everything from cutting back to cooking to calorie counting. Look for Jeffrey's complete story in Taste of Home's Comfort Food Diet: New Family Classics Collection (January 2011)!

So, eat, drink, and be healthy this holiday season issue and then keep it going all year long. With the new Healthy Cooking December/January 2011 issue it's in with the new!
