My latest article is in Kaia Magazine, folks! I've contributed to the online mag a few times now, and I've gotta say, it's just so cool to see how it all comes together. I offer up a topic (or ask them for one that needs writing -- sometimes I have the most fun writing about something unexpected and doing the research to learn more about it), I send it in by a deadline, then a few short weeks/months later, there it is in a sleek online publication, surrounded by tons of other great articles and resources. It's weird; I don't really know any of the folks (except for the editors, and only virtually), but it feels like we're all part of a cool little family.
In case you haven't checked it out yet, let me tell you my favorites about this edition (besides my own fun little piece on eco-vacationing):
- Yoga 101. Not sure what type of yoga suits your needs? Seriously, there's a type for EVERY person, regardless of experience level. This is the perfect yoga primer.
- Go on a Clutter Diet!! Yeeesssss, I so needed this one. Hoping to put it to good use this weekend. And, the best part is that it includes things like "Reward Yourself." I can so get behind that!
- Gardening, gardening, gardening!!! From using raised beds (budget-friendly ideas) to container gardening, this is right up my alley. How's about you? :-)
- The REAL reasons to buy organic. This article is exactly what I want to shove in folks' face who think the Stanford "report" that suggested organic isn't any "healthier" than regular fruits and veg is a big ol' neener neener to we organic eaters. Seriously, "healthy" isn't all in the calories, folks. It's also in what long-term affects can be felt in the body.
(Not to mention, that Kale and Portabello Quinoa recipe sounds insanely good...if only the hubs ate mushrooms. Blerg.)
So, feel free to check it out and let me know what your favorite part is. Either way, I hope the positivity of the mag can be felt, because that's by far the best part of reading it (and writing for it) for me. Oh, and if you missed any of my old articles, check out this link.
