As I peeled back the cover and started reading some of the non-typical magazine articles (even for a vegan magazine) an air of familiarity washed over me. I felt like I had been exposed to this information before, like I knew the authors and so I did...McDougall, Esselstyn, Campbell, Popper and the list goes on.
Disguised as the typical entertainment piece - coffee table literature was in fact a wealth of fact-based, plant-based knowledge; but not written in the typical medical blah, blah jargon, but rather in language that the average Joe can comprehend, absorb, relate to. Quick hits of info as only a magazine format could deliver paired with the rich, glossy, eye candy photos. Clever, Naked Food, very clever...
Still not convinced this is not your typical fluff magazine?

As for the name, it actually stands for New American Kind and Enlightened Diet (Naked) to support the magazine's mission of switching people off the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). Not so cheeky after all...
