March 2019 Letter from the Publishers
A growing number of Americans are moving away from meat and more toward a plant-based diet, a development that comes with the promise of glowing health and expanding culinary horizons. Writer April Thompson shares the secrets of making this a seamless transition in “The Roots of Good Health: Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet.” Cindy and I will be further expanding our use of plants in our diet this year as I expect our 2nd year garden to provide the majority of our food. Moving from a meat heavy diet to a plant-based one or moving from being mainly a consumer of food to a self-sufficient producer is not easy, nor can it be accomplished quickly. If it were, more people would have done it already. It’s a journey and every journey, long or short, begins with the first step.
This month we have several articles on the whys and how’s of plant-based eating as well as a list of local resources that can help you. We also have another in a series of how plant medicine, specifically CBD derived from hemp can help you live a better life. All of this month’s article could not be fitted into our print edition. If you’d like to read even more about plant-based living, you can subscribe to our digital edition by texting NAHTX to 66866 or by visiting our website at NaturalAwkenings-Houston.com. We do charge a small subscription fee for the extra articles to defray the cost of a second magazine layout but we think you will find it more than worth the price.
Next month we will look at ways we can stop global climate change and ways that we can have safer and healthier homes. Until then, remember to be kind. It rarely costs anything and just might make someone’s day.
Mike & Cindy Hart
