Dear Friends,

Welcome to our March Food and Nutrition Issue. While you won’t find leaping leprechauns or pots of gold within these pages, you may discover a gem of a recipe for “Neeps and Tatties” shepherd’s pie. More importantly, you’ll find knowledge that is as priceless as gold, shaping a profound impact on our well-being.

Food and nutrition, as we explore in this issue, carry diverse meanings for each of us, reflecting our unique lifestyles and beliefs. For many, holistic wellness is not merely about sustenance; it is a way of life. We understand that what we consume acts as a potent medicine, influencing not only our physical health, but also our emotional and mental well-being.

On a personal note, I’ve witnessed the transformative power of mindful eating within my own family. As a parent of children with ADHD, avoiding artificial additives, excessive sugars and processed foods has become crucial. The immediate behavioral changes observed when my son consumes something containing Red Dye 40 serve as a poignant reminder of the intricate relationship between diet and well-being.

Nurturing our children’s palates from infancy lays the foundation for a lifelong appreciation of wholesome, flavorful foods. Creating homemade baby food allowed my family to savor bold textures and tastes, fostering a love for nourishing ingredients that continues to blossom.

Our “Making Baby Food at Home, Expanding Palates Without Artificial Additives” article sets the stage for a plethora of other engaging ones. Our feature story, “Food Trends, What We Are Looking for at the Dinner Table,” offers a glimpse into the ever-evolving landscape of culinary innovation, inviting you to embrace new tastes and experiences.

Furthermore, we dive into a “Functional Medicine Approach to Colon Health,” along with “Planting for the Planet, Seven Herbs to Grow, Eat and Heal.” And so much more.

Lastly, the Holistic Health & Healing Expo, is slated for March 24th from 11 am to 5 pm at the Doubletree in Cherry Hill. This eagerly anticipated event promises to bring integrative health and conscious living together.

Within these pages, you will find the event’s agenda, including an array of enlightening workshops and a captivating lineup of vendors who are dedicated to empowering your journey toward wellness.

As you journey through the pages of this issue, may you find inspiration, nourishment and joy. Here’s to embracing the transformative power of food and nurturing a radiant, flourishing life.

Happy Spring Everyone!
