Change. Some of us fear it. Others embrace it. One thing is for certain, though: it is inescapable. This month we say goodbye to a dear friend, who has been with us since the inception of our Northeast Wisconsin edition in 2006. Jen Walla, our beloved editor, is making a change in her life and embracing a new opportunity. We will miss her warm smile, quick wit and unique personality. Not only does she leave big shoes to fill, but an empty spot in our hearts as well. Best wishes, Jen!

Those of you who have made resolutions for this New Year can relate to change as well. One month in, and it has taken some real commitment to get to this point. If you are not doing so well with your resolution, I encourage you to keep trying. I tend to relate making resolutions to riding a bike. If you fail, you keep getting back on. Failure doesn’t mean you have to stop trying. It means trying again with some good knowledge under your belt.

This month’s contributors have some excellent knowledge to share. In an area where we all may need a little change, Brittany Sandoval shares some tips on breaking the sugar habit. As long as we need to limit something in our diets, why not learn about something we should add? Marcia Simler educates us about why green foods are great for us! And that’s just a start. Read on for more enlightening articles.

I am excited to have this opportunity to take the baton from Jen. It is a wonderful feeling to be a team member at Nature’s Pathways and to be able to help facilitate the education of those interested in pursuing a healthy lifestyle. In my role as assistant editor, prior to Jen’s departure, I had the chance to get to know many of you, our loyal readers and advertisers, and I look forward to connecting with all of you each month. Sometimes on our journey to better health we need some encouragement, and I hope to be a source of that for you.

In health and happiness,

Jackie

Do you crave sweets morning, noon and night? Do you find it impossible to stop eating sugar once you start? We all get cravings from time to time, some more than others. You may find yourself lurking in your pantry or making another lap down the bakery aisle staring with…
Masonry: Brickwork, stone work, old stucco. We are surrounded by it. We live in it. Some pay no attention to it; some are fascinated by it. I confess a smoldering passion. I am a keeper. Many of you are. You just don’t know. Keepers are a quiet society of those…
One thing the various leafy greens and the other greens, such as alfalfa, barley juice powder, chlorophyll, parsley, spirulina and algaes, have in common is that they are some of the powerhouse nutrients the body needs in this stress-filled, anxious world.

A job loss back in 2004 could have been a huge blow to Meghan Blake-Horst; instead, it turned out to be a blessing both for her and the city of Madison — and its surrounding area. An idea that had been percolating for years suddenly was able to come to…
Adequate self-care, including rest and quiet time, is often required before we can truly hear what others are trying to tell us. This is true with all sorts of “others,” including our subconscious self, a creative muse or (if you’re so inclined) the Divine. Take a quiet moment and listen…
