START fresh Every January, we talk about healthier habits and new beginnings. But for me, especially this year, spring feels like a better time to make a fresh start. Maybe it’s because time has been a little squishy since the pandemic began. Hours pass so quickly, slowly, or erratically that we’ve coined a word—Blursday—to describe that what-day-is-it-anyway feeling. Here in Des Moines, winter seemed to stretch on for about two years of Blursdays. And yet, spring comes. Undeterred, the trees bud and asparagus spears push fearlessly up through the soil. Vaccinations boost chances for a return to life (and social gatherings and zippered pants).

nature’s inflammation fighters

Inflammation can be good and bad. On the one hand, acute inflammation helps the body defend itself from infection and injury. But chronic inflammation can lead to diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and allergies.

A good rule of thumb: The lighter the color, the milder the flavor. Orange Blossom: This white to extra-light amber honey is bursting with orange notes. Give it a go in salad dressings and marinades, or pair it with creamy cheeses, such as Brie, goat cheese, and Camembert. Alfalfa: Nectar from the violet-colored blooms of alfalfa make for a mild-flavored and light-amber honey. Its neutrality makes it ideal for baking and cooking. Try it in marinades for…
