Welcome to our October edition. All ages will find many healthy tips within these pages. I especially appreciate the reminder from Bridgette Ruge of the importance of eating a balanced meal. Do you actually know what a balanced meal is? Check out page 15 for easy meals to pack for school and work. She also shares how to get off the rollercoaster of blood sugar highs and lows. If you are trying to boost cognition and/or lose weight, this article is a must-read.
Another favorite article confirms that taking a daily siesta has many benefits for all ages. I fondly remember the days in kindergarten when everyone took a nap on a soft mat in the classroom. See page 22
and schedule your daily power nap without guilt or apology. Everyone deserves daily “me-time” to unplug and recharge.
Finally, autumn—my favorite season—is here! Be sure to check out our calendar section
(pp 23-27). There are so many events happening this month. Get out and have fun. Looking for new ways to have a balanced meal? The 14th annual VegFest is the perfect place! It is free and fun for the whole family. See Saturday, October 26 details on page 25. Hope to see you there!
