Editor's Note: If experts that bring us the food have trouble eating their own goods, then we know there lies turbulent waters ahead. According to this EatLocalGrown article, light is shed on toxin and chemical build-up in the food we consume. While we continue to examine healthier alternatives, we, as a population must be aware of methods used for processing our precious food to make sure it remains clean and sustainable.

I have taken the liberty of describing alpha lipoic acid as the “miracle molecule” because it is among the most valuable nutritional supplements we can take for our over-all well-being. I believe that alpha lipoic acid ascends to the “miracle” level because it has a wide spectrum of biological activities that are useful in treating serious diseases, it is valuable in protecting against the formation or progression of serious diseases, and it can be a major contributor to achieving “healthy aging”...

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?

In talking with my mentor and nutritionist, Julie Daniluk, I was reminded of the need for a daily meditation to help with stress busting. When I go to my friend’s house and draw spiritual cards, I often get the “meditation” card. When talking to other mentors or leaders in yoga and wellness, they ask if I have a daily meditation practice (knowing I should). Ugh… really?! Meditation again? Sigh. See the thing is, no matter how much I duck, dodge and fight it… meditation will keep being brought to my attention, because it is something that I really need in my life...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: An article from one of my dearest of friends and also former college roommate (which means we've been friends for over 25 years). We've both come a long way, baby.

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.
