There’s a lot to be thankful for in November.
“Zenful Cooking: Mindful Meals in Quiet Gratitude” (page 23) brings joy to the season’s table
and invites you to try recipes both in print and online. Three of the nation’s top Zen chefs share their wisdom about being grateful, present and peaceful at mealtime— just in time for Thanksgiving!
And there’s more food to explore! Love mushrooms? Read the excellent article on “Medicinal Mushrooms” and try the recipe in the Plant-Based Medicine section on page 21. Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, a leading figure in a worldwide gratitude movement, puts it all in perspective in this month’s Inspiration piece on page 25: “Enough for All: In Pursuit of Grateful Living.”
This month’s feature, “Chasing ZZZZZs: How to Put Insomnia to Rest” (page 16) examines the many contributors and adverse health effects of compromised sleep, along with natural pathways to a good night’s rest.
Julie Peterson explores the new world of fitness in “Virtual Workouts Change the Game” on page 14. Training via an app or online is all the rage now for seasoned gym rats and newbie exercisers that value the convenience and privacy of this growing phenomenon.
And last, but not least, hens with benefits take center stage in “Urban Chickens: Coming Home to Roost.” Locavores with a hankering for fresh, organic eggs produced close to home have sparked a resurgence in backyard chicken keeping; even people that don’t like omelets are getting in on the trend. These chic chicks make great pets for vegans, too. Make sure to check out Colorado’s rules and guidelines from the link provided on page 13.
