I’ve always secretly loved January. Okay, the weather is colder, the days are shorter, and clothes are a bit snug around the waistline, but it’s also the first chapter in a brand-new book. Let’s hope this year’s genre is less dystopian sci-fi and more feel-good…
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling ’22. That being said, Anne Marie warns us against subscribing to the blinkered idea that life will somehow magically change once the clock strikes midnight (p. 37). Instead, can’t we just enjoy the journey?
One thing that most certainly will be changing overnight, however, is my daily breakfast spread of four miniature chocolates, fistful of twiglets, and a polvorón. Rachel Payas of Blurred Limes talks to Gib Mag about ‘flexitarianism’, nutrition, and new dishes (p. 65).
If this is the year you plan to lose your V-card and give Veganuary a go, not only do we have some fabulous smoothie recipes for you (p. 86) but the inspiring Rosanna Morales (author of Ageing in the Garden of Vegan) highlights all the benefits of going plant based – not only for ourselves, but for our planet (p. 29). A big thank you to Minister Cortes and our other wonderful participants in this ‘Got Greens?’ campaign!
And finally, it’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of one of our oldest and best-loved contributors, Reg Reynolds (p. 17). Thank you for all your wonderful contributions, Reg – we will all miss you dearly.
