Livestock, Red Meat and the Environment
I've never been much of one for extremist vegan propaganda, but I've been making some changes to my diet based on increasing evidence that the production of meat, or should I say our consumption levels, is a major environmental and humanitarian issue.

Looking for something to eat before you retire? Here are some great options...
Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Who came up with the rule "No eating after 7 PM?" I find sometimes I am hungry before I go to bed and I rather eat something healthy instead of going to bed hungry. I have provided a few bed-time snacks that will not spike your blood sugar levels but will help your body rest peacefully as well as burn additional body fat while sleeping. How great is that?

Most of us have been taught to believe that good nutrition is simply a function of eating the right food and taking the right supplements. Of course, this is true, but there’s more to the equation...
Editor´s Note: Marc David’s savvy approach to eating is powerful, ingenious and sums up that we are all part of an integrative process of existence. This article, “The Secrets of Eating Psychology” puts everything in perspective on how the mind and body are part of a continuous sequence that not only feed off each other, but protect, support and in an odd sort of way, even love each other. David takes the negative connotations out of eating and shows us that eating and thinking can harmoniously work together.

This may be stating the obvious, yet my impression, albeit anecdotal, is that many folk lack a sense of self-understanding when it comes to hunger, which combined with socio-behavioral conditioning, results in a failure to consume ‘correct’ amounts of food...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: As the holidays fast approach, many of us wonder how to keep a healthy, portioned diet in the face of delicious temtations. Ayurveda offers much advice on the quantity, qualities and timing of meals according to our environment and prakriti. Vaidya Alex Duncan offers some clarity as to healthy eating with reference to passages from the Charaka Samhita. Take a moment before your holiday season begins to reflect on how you may better approach food and celebrations through Ayurvedic eyes. Namaste
