Cheers to the New Year! AS WE BEGIN 2020, A NEW DECADE, WE SET GOALS FOR WHAT WE WANT OUR FUTURE SELVES TO BE LIKE AND LOOK LIKE. We take a glance back at where we have been and what we have done, and we try to remember to extend ourselves grace. January is a time to cleanse, to start fresh and not dwell on who we were 12 months ago. So much change can happen in a year, so as we plan our future and commit to resolutions, we also leave some room to change our minds—to grow and be human.

According to Feeding America, 1 in 8 Idahoans and 1 in 6 Idaho children are food insecure; meaning they live at risk of hunger. “As the only statewide nonprofit addressing food insecurity, it is an honor to acknowledge this milestone in The Idaho Foodbank’s history.

/ˈLŌK(Ə)L/ ADJECTIVE 1.  belonging or relating to a particular area or neighborhood Juniper, located at 211 N. 8th Street, downtown Boise, exemplifies local belonging. You know the food is local when the Chef can tell you they had to take the duck eggs off of the menu because coyotes got into the clutch. He knows exactly what is going on with the ingredients he buys and where they come from- and they are pretty much all local. Juniper’s website says, “ We work closely with our local farmers, growers, and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor, and soul.” Juniper belongs to Idaho. Idaho farms, creameries, distilleries, vineyards, and breweries all regularly stock the pantry at Juniper- but fresh, sustainable ingredients and drinks may not even be the best part of Juniper’s menu. Juniper belongs to the gastronomically challenged. Chef Aaron uses creativity and his Le Cordon Bleu training to compose a menu that both delights the palate and has mouthwatering options to accommodate many dietary considerations, an ever-increasing need and challenge as food sensitivities are on the rise.  Not only are many items on the menu easily modified to be vegan, but Chef Aaron has worked to ensure that those same dishes will be safe for customers with a sensitivity to nuts*- something that is usually mutually exclusive when it comes to vegan dishes. If a customer has dietary issues, the kitchen staff at Juniper wants to know about it. Chef Aaron  is happy to try to find a way to make the dishes on the menu so that customers can enjoy them. Such an open door is a breath of fresh air for those with dietary restrictions. CONTINUED >

ARTICLE NICOLETTE MARTIN NEW YEAR, NEW US. We don’t mean to be cliché, but is there really any better time for working on yourself than when Jan. 1 rolls around—whether you’re focused on your physical health or your mental health? It sure seems like the perfect time, but there will also be days when you’re just not quite feeling it. The holidays are over, the days are shorter and, let’s face it, there’s not really a ton to look forward to until spring sprouts. But, whatever your mood is this time of year, there’s still an activity you can do that’s worthwhile—and will give

you a boost! Here’s how to choose the right one.

HAVE THE ENERGY? THESE ACTIVITIES WILL GET YOU MOVING AND OUT OF YOUR POST-HOLIDAY FUNK

by increasing body awareness, reducing muscle tension, relieving stress and sharpening attention + concentration.

YO G A

There’s a reason people who are active runners describe something called a “runner’s high.” Studies show that aerobic exercises release mood-boosting endorphins.

RUNNING

Relax one body part at a time, one muscle at a time + one thought at a time through a daily Savasana practice.

If you want to get into running but aren’t sure where to start, check out a couch-to-5K program to ease into it.

PARTING THOUGHTS

Inspired b y S u c c e s s PHOTOGRAPHY GRETCHEN LEMAY

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF SUCCESS? My definition of success means being the kind of person who impacts the world such that my children are, and their progeny will be, proud of who I am for them and what I’ve created in honor of them. WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE PROUD OF? I’m very proud of my family, my Team at Kvell, and the Kvell Crew, which is our membership community. I don’t see what I do as running a place where people simply come to exercise, like a gym; I’ve created a space where a community gets together to get healthy, build confidence, and unite over something they collectively have in common. At a time where we see so much divisiveness among our fellow humans, having a way to bring together people of different ages, genders, backgrounds, jobs, etc where people empower one another, brings me great pride. WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT? I’m passionate about empowering my fellow fallible humans and my community to reach their hidden potential, to know themselves as capable and powerful, and extinguishing the self-imposed limits that naturally occur in the human brain.

Brett Denton

BROOKE “When two of my friends invited me to join them for an Orangetheory workout two years ago, I had no idea that it would end up making such a huge impact on my life. I WAS HOOKED!! I fell in love with the workouts, the coaches, the staff and the people who would soon become my OTF family. These workouts have given me my life back. I have taken back control of my health and fitness, and I am strong, happy and confident once again and as a bonus I have lost 35 pounds! Thank you OTF!�
