Summertime is synonymous with vibrant colors, natural beauty and fresh flavors that make us feel revitalized throughout this entire glorious season! In fact, this month’s issue of Natural Awakenings is dedicated to just that––celebrating organically grown, locally sourced nourishment to enhance those summer cookouts and improve your eating habits in the process.
Inside these pages, you’ll find numerous strategies for embracing an organic lifestyle––from plant-based to grass-fed to free-range and other ethical food practices we should all become more aware of. Don’t miss our Conscious Eating feature on “The Lexicon of Sustainability” which debunks popular terms used in the wellness industry to support this global mission of natural health and eco-consciousness––right in our own backyards. Plus, you can also learn more about the Suncoast’s various establishments that are making a positive impact on this community’s growing organic initiatives.
You parents out there will also enjoy “Nourishing Children from the Start” which offers advice on cultivating nutritious behaviors that can last a lifetime. Finally, check out “Mom’s Summer Cooking School” for kid-friendly recipes that make whole foods accessible and familiar––not to mention, absolutely delicious––for the entire family, while keeping your little ones entertained throughout their hiatus from school.
Through whichever means you choose to “go organic” this season, I sincerely hope that you’ll find enlightenment, inspiration and practical pointers within this issue. As always, please email any comments or suggestions to [email protected] Here’s to another heathy Florida summer!
