welcome to 2021

WHEN MY SON finally started in-person school in mid-fall, I bombarded him with questions after his first day: What was the classroom like? Did it feel different to sit far from the other kids? Were there any new rules? He was monosyllabic in answering the first two, but about the last he said, “Well, we have to wear our masks all the time, but besides that, we got to make up the rules together.” (Third grade teachers are masters of human nature, by the way.) They agreed not to interrupt one another and to keep the room clean. And then there was this rule, which a classmate suggested and with which they all were on board: “Don’t freak out.” That’s the vibe we’re going with in this issue. Conventional wisdom says this…

De-Stress in the Great Outdoors Ring in the new year by pledging to spend a little more time outside. Being in nature can help you manage stress and boost your happiness, says research, and it also means you’re getting your move on—all things that add up to a healthier you! Get creative and have some fun. Is it snowy where you live? Borrow some snowshoes or cross-country skis and trek through your neighborhood or a local park, or join your kids for some sledding (and hustle back up that hill!). Does winter mean mud and gray skies for you? Layer up and go on a hike, or grab your kids for a messy obstacle course in the yard that will get all your hearts racing. Or find a themed 5K (you…

your new health care tool

WHAT IT’S GOOD FOR Technology is amazing—these days a doctor can diagnose and help treat a host of issues, from rashes to colds, right through your phone or computer. They can also prescribe or refill certain medications, address mental health needs, and continue to treat and help you manage chronic conditions like thyroid issues and diabetes. WHEN IT’S NOT RIGHT Sometimes a virtual appointment doesn’t cut it—an urgent situation such as a cardiac event or a serious allergy attack requires an immediate in-person visit to the doctor or ER. HOW TO TRY IT OUT Your doctor or hospital may have a preferred platform or app they want you to use, but there are also websites and apps like Zocdoc and Doctor On Demand that have a virtual Rolodex of medical professionals from around the country.…

lighter comfort classics

BAGEL Go ahead, enjoy a “bagel” with a schmear! Spread goat’s milk or Greek yogurt cream cheese on a sandwich thin, a piece of whole-grain toast, or a whole-grain English muffin; either variety will have a little less fat and a bit more protein than regular cream cheese. ASIAN TAKEOUT Recreate fried rice or your favorite stir-fry by using riced veggies instead of rice. Whip up noodle dishes using shirataki noodles (made from konjac, a Japanese root) or ones made from hearts of palm—both behave like rice noodles but have minimal calories and carbs. FRIES Make superfood french fries for a nutritious bite by baking up sticks of jicama, turnip, or carrot in a conventional oven or an air fryer until they’re crispy-crunchy, then sprinkling them with your favorite seasoning. CREAMY SOUP Enjoy guilt-free comfort by using…
