A few gems from this issue that are taking my energy, health and positive frame of mind to new heights are the recipes from the top gluten-free cookbooks of the moment on page 64 (hello, baobab truffles!). And our 20 (20!) chicken recipes starting on page 32 will make you fall in love with (organic) chicken all over again – from mushroom chicken hash and potato waffles to Slow-Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala and Coconut Curry–Crusted Chicken Salad, these flavor-packed dinners managed to revive my excitement for chicken after a very long chicken-burnout hiatus. And for tight-on-time days, we have some spectacular sheet pan dinners that are made entirely on one or two pans, resulting in fuss-free cooking with minimal cleanup.
But one of my absolutely favorite pieces from this issue is our Associate Editor Laura Schober’s interview with Lauren Singer, a New Yorker who hasn’t sent a thing to the landfill in over three years. Singer has yet to fill a Mason jar with the trash she’s produced in that time (just consider what most of us produce in a week), and even if that’s a little extreme for your household, I really believe that we should all connect more to what we put in that bin and send away to the landfill each week. I highly recommend her galvanizing Q&A on page 28 and hope you bring some of her easy tips into your home. In my own, I vow to start examining what I toss, switch to the smallest waste bin available from my city and buy more food and personal-care products in bulk instead of packages. Imagine the positive impact we could have if each of us made just a few simple changes. Just thinking of the possibilities makes my heart smile.
To fresh starts, a deliciously healthy spring and a lighter footprint!
