Glorious Food

By Sandra G. Malhotra, Ph.D. Food (/fo–od/) Any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth. This issue is all about glorious, beautiful, real food — where to get it, why it’s important, and how to have a positive relationship with it. We hope by the end of it you are craving something delicious and nourishing. However, as I write this, I think about how out of place such an article would have been a couple of generations ago. My Mom-mom Pasquarelli did not need instructions on...

How to Feel Joy, Happiness and Gratitude for Death

By Noam Kostucki We experience death in many aspects of our lives. This year, 2016, is about to pass and give way to 2017. Jobs, relationships, phases of our lives pass away… and so do the people in our lives.

Let’s not sugar coat this fruit cake — the holidays can be downright craptacular … wonderful and stressful crammed together like a Turducken. Unlike holiday movies, the season is not picture-perfect for many of us. It could be more like Festivus, with feats of strength and the airing of grievances. (Remember “A Festivus for the Rest of Us”? If not, Google it! It’s comedy gold, nay platinum, courtesy...

Our Journey to a Holistic Vet for Willy

By Sandra G. Malhotra When Willy was two months old and cute as a button, we started seeing a conventional vet close to home. They took great care of him when he had parasites and when he took a leap of faith out of the car window one day. (Why he thought he could fly is still a mystery.) But I became quite alarmed after Willy reacted badly to the distemper/hepatitis/parvovirus (DHP) vaccination at three months of age. He was awake and whining all night and wanted to go outside many times. It was a sleepless night as he...
