EatingWell magazine has been selected winner of a James Beard Foundation Journalism Award. The publication was honored for “The Soup for Life,” an article by Anna Thomas that appeared in the September/October 2011 issue.

The piece won in the Cooking, Recipes, or Instruction category.

Additionally, two EatingWell articles were named finalists: “Going Clean” by Melinda Wenner Moyer (September/October 2011) in the Health and Well-Being Category; and “The E-Mail Home” by Ann Hodgman (September/October 2011) in the Humor category.

“Anna Thomas’ article about how one pot of green soup ended up changing her diet is the perfect reflection of our mission at EatingWell – to deliver inspiring information on how to make healthy eating a way of life,” says EatingWell editorial director, Lisa Gosselin. “We are so proud of our editorial team for their dedication to producing the story, and we are thrilled to be recognized for creating some of the most compelling food content in the country.”

Since its highly acclaimed relaunch in 2002, EatingWell’s articles and books have been recognized as winners and/or finalists for 23 James Beard Awards.
