The Seasoned biweekly newsletter features tips for making cooking easier for older adults, exercises to improve balance and stability, and sometimes a game or two.

Seasoned: The Inspired Cooking Magazine for Adults is a 32-page quarterly magazine that guides adults on basics like shopping and storing food, minimizing waste, stretching ingredients, plus how to make nutritious, affordable and ethnically-diverse meals for a healthful lifestyle as they age to help prevent chronic illness.

Seasoned features:

  • Skill-building how-tos
  • Budget-stretching ideas
  • Brain boosters
  • Ergonomic tools
  • And, of course, lots of recipes for delicious and easy meals to make at home.

Editor, John “Doc” Willoughby, has been writing and teaching about food since 1989. He has co-authored ten cookbooks as well as a monthly column for the New York Times’ Dining section. He has also been Executive Editor of Cooks Illustrated, Executive Editor of Gourmet Magazine, and Editorial Director of America’s Test Kitchen.
