Crowdsourced Cookbook, Comfort Food Edition: Winners Announced

Our readers have spoken about which comfort food is most essential for winter. And unsurprisingly, they've said "more beer, please."

Our readers have spoken. And (perhaps rather unsurprisingly) they've chosen the dish with beer in the title. Congratulations to GOOD Community member Sara Keller, whose Beef and Beer Stew was the Reader's Choice of all the submissions to our latest food project, the Crowdsourced Cookbook, Comfort Food Edition.

We also picked an Editor's Choice: Laine Hardy's Spanish Breakfast Stew (pictured below), which takes a surefire approach to jazzing up any meal—throwing an egg on top. Be sure to check out all the recipes; we've compiled them in a mini-cookbook to print out and keep in the kitchen. Click here to download the cookbook.

Thank you to our winners, who will receive a subscription to GOOD Magazine and a GOOD T-Shirt, and a big thanks to everyone else who participated.

It seems wild that someone would voluntarily sign up to run 26.2 miles, but those half a million people might actually be on to something. A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that running a marathon can help reverse signs of aging.

Researchers at Barts and University College London looked at 138 first-time marathon runners between the ages of 21 and 69. "We wanted to look at novice athletes. We didn't include people who said they ran for more than two hours a week," Dr. Charlotte Manisty, the study's senior author and cardiologist at University College London, said per CNN.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."
