Whole Living Action Plan 2013

by Louisa on January 17, 2013

Have you seen the gorgeous healthy lifestyle magazine Whole Living? I call it Martha Stewart’s “new age” magazine, because it’s full of advice on healing and spiritual well-being. I love it.

Every year for their January issue, Whole Living publishes a delicious dietary detox plan known as the Action Plan, and for the last three years I’ve contributed recipes. The detox is meant to help readers recover from holiday indulgence, and set a blueprint for healthy eating throughout the year. This year’s January issue is now out on newsstands, and you can get my recipes in the Week 3 section of the detox.

I’m really excited about these recipes. They’re pared down for easy prep, but delicious and beautiful. I’m especially excited about the Banana-Apple Buckwheat Muffins. They’re fruity, fluffy, full of comforting buckwheat flavor — and gluten-free!

The Action Plan is also available online, along with all the recipes for the entire three-week cleanse, provided by myself along with Sarah Britton, who writes about food on her excellent blog My New Roots, and Sara Forte, author of the exceptional vegetarian cookbook The Sprouted Kitchen.

Sadly, this is the final issue of Whole Living. Like so many magazines in the past few years, they are shutting down for financial reasons. There are a lot of sad subscribers out there, including myself, and I wonder where I’ll be able to find such good writing, well-curated info, and healthy recipes in one place. Thank you Whole Living, you will be missed!
