    Cooking Light Magazine Cooking Light was first published as a small column in Southern Living magazine, before publisher Southern Progress decided to launch the magazine in 1987. It has become one of the most popular cooking magazines in the market. The focus is on healthy eating and living. Cooking Light features approximately 100 recipes in each issue, making the magazine a standout in the cooking genre. Nutritional information is included with each recipe, so you know the amount of calories, fat, protein, fiber, carbohydrates, cholesterol, iron, sodium and calcium contained in a dish. Recipes typically have less than 30% of the recommended daily amount of fat and are also low in salt. The magazine also features a number of articles in each issue on exercise, as part of the healthy lifestyle promoted in Cooking Light. Other topics include travel, shopping and gift ideas. Articles also feature highly acclaimed chefs, expert insights and cooking techniques.


    Cook onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until tender. Add rice, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg; cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth and next 5 ingredients (broth through pepper); bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat. Simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; add pork and spinach. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes.

    Spoon 1 1/2 cups rice mixture onto individual plates; top each with 1 tablespoon parsley and 1 1/2 teaspoons almonds.
