Wellness 2016

EdibleAustin 47 coverThe Wellness Issue

It is said that happiness is a state of well-being brought on, in part, by feeling that one is a contributing element to a greater whole. 

The path to finding happiness in this way can be interpreted as being a participating member in our community and the consequential effect of our human communities on the planet. Or, taking a narrower view, it can be attainable by contributing to the wholeness that is the microcosm of a healthy body. 

Understanding what our body (which can often appear mysterious and flawed) needs to be healthy should be as much a personal responsibility as something guided by wise and professional healers. Being mindful about what we eat and taking care of our physical well-being through food is a fundamental step along the way. We hope our Wellness issue will help with the journey.
