Making ChoiCes

Having a Plan Modern, developed cultures have evolved into lifestyles based on instant gratification. From running water to technology that connects us real time with people across the globe, we expect to have them instantly. Taking our time when we make choices is almost a lost art. In olden days, everything needed a plan and time to execute the plan. Covered wagons crossing the country, gathering food to eat, cutting and storing wood for cooking and warmth, and every detail for daily existence and survival required forethought and coordination among loved ones. Conveniences are fabulous. Yet beyond a cozy, simple home with hot, running water, plumbing and food and clothes for our wellbeing, there are only a few conveniences that can be considered as true necessities. If one is to sort through their life and look at all that is non-essential for a comfortable existence, there is a lot we work for that is extraneous to comfort and survival. We spend an enormous amount of work time, most away from home, keeping all

our extras paid for and maintained. It creates a lifestyle much like a hamster’s continuous efforts through mazes in a cage. Instead of learning about ourselves and truly making personal choices about what brings us joy, we have fallen victim to being consumers of things we mostly don’t need. This incessant buying creates a lifestyle of striving and chaos complicating the simple pleasures of being alive. My T’ai Chi Master teaches, “Happiness = Pleasure + Meaning.” To achieve happiness we first must decide what has meaning for us. Once we do this it is important to have a plan. Pausing long enough to ponder our dreams and then plotting a course of action to achieve the dream is what brings pleasure. Slowing down to enjoy our lives will take time and a plan. We have traveled so far away from what truly matters, our lives seem as though they don’t belong to us any longer. Let’s remember we are the pilot and captain of our ship on the sea of life. Charting our course matters if we are to find joy along the journey.

Recipe of theWeek:

Roasted Garlic Marinara Braised Chicken with Linguine





Add chicken to sauce in Dutch oven in single layer, skin-side up, with skin just above surface of sauce. Cover and bake 40 minutes. Begin to boil water for pasta. Remove cover from Dutch oven and cook in oven 10 minutes. Cook pasta al dente according to package instructions. Drain.

6-8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound whole-wheat linguine 8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms 1/2 cup small diced onion 1/4 cup white wine (optional) 3 ounces baby kale Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350 F. In 3-quart Dutch oven over medium heat, heat sauce. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add chicken, skin-side down, and cook 3-5 minutes, or until skin is crisp and deep golden-brown. Turn chicken over and cook 3-5 minutes until golden-brown on second side. Remove chicken from skillet, leaving fat in pan. Set aside skillet to be used later.

Remove Dutch oven from oven and gently transfer chicken to large plate. Add pasta to sauce in Dutch oven and stir gently to coat. Place portion of pasta in pasta bowl and make well in middle. Spoon mushroom-kale mixture into center of well and top with one piece of chicken. Shave Parmesan cheese over dish to finish. Substitution: Portobello, shiitake or button mushrooms may be used in place of cremini mushrooms. Tip: Serve with creamy polenta instead of pasta. In saucepan, combine 2 cups chicken stock, 2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Bring to boil and whisk in 1 cup instant polenta and cook, while stirring, 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and whisk to combine. Spoon polenta into serving dish and make a well in middle. Place mushroom-kale mixture in well. Top with marinara sauce and one piece of chicken.

From the Editors of E/The Environmental Magazine

Just when I finally purged my kitchen of non-stick cookware due to the risks posed by Teflon, I now learn that my rain jacket and waterproof boots are also putting my health at risk from exposure to similar “hydrophobic” chemicals. What’s a concerned outdoors person to do about staying dry and comfortable on a rainy hike?- Alex Walker, Philadelphia, PA Most of us remember when GORE-Tex first appeared and revolutionized outdoor clothing and gear by infusing products with a waterproof treatment that could also “breathe” so we wouldn’t get clammy on the inside as our outerwear repelled the elements. Since then, this synthetic chemical-based weatherproofing has become ubiquitous throughout the outdoor industry, not only in jackets, but also in boots and shoes, backpacks, tents, swimsuits and just about everything else that gets exposed to the wet and wild. And while we’ve all been happily making our way through the rain and snow, we might not have realized that there is a dark underbelly to all of this weatherproof outdoor gear: perfluorinated compounds (PFCs). These synthetic chemicals are related to the “hydrophobic” PFOA formulations that make non-stick cookware easy to clean by encouraging liquids to bead up and roll away. And like their chemical cousins on cookware, the PFCs in your jacket could be making you sick and polluting the environment. “PFCs are environmentally hazardous substances, which are persistent in the environment,” reports Greenpeace, which launched its Detox Outdoor campaign in 2012 to convince outdoor gear makers to stop using toxic chemicals in their products. “Studies show that some PFCs can accumulate in living organisms such as the livers of polar bears in the Arctic and are also detected in human blood.”

For That Special Someone…

Meanwhile, animal studies indicate that PFCs can harm reproductive processes, negatively impact hormonal balances and promote the growth of tumors. Once released into the environment PFCs break down very slowly. They remain in the environment for several hundred years and are dispersed over the entire globe. Some are found in secluded mountain lakes or accumulated in wildlife. Some are also found in human blood. If you have waterproof shoes or a rain jacket that is more than a year or two old, chances are it was treated with a PFC-laced Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish before it left the factory—and could be leaching trace amounts of these toxic carcinogenic chemicals into your body and the environment. And PFCs never break down entirely, so they can continue to cause harm indefinitely. Luckily, given Greenpeace’s advocacy and resulting consumer awareness, the majority of gear makers have started to phase out PFCs. Smaller brands including Paramo, Pyua, Rotauf, Fjällräven, R’ADYS and Dannah were the first to commit to PFC-free product lines, but the bigger players are coming around, too. W.L. Gore, Patagonia, The North Face, Marmot, Columbia and others have voluntarily committed to phasing out PFC-based DWR formulations by 2020 per Greenpeace’s original ask. But getting there depends on finding suitable alternatives. Many companies have temporarily switched to less toxic while still fluorocarbon-based DWR formulations while they look for greener formulations. For its part, Patagonia is betting big through its corporate investment fund Tin Shed Ventures on Switzerland-based start-up Beyond Surface Technologies, a company founded in 2008 by scientists who left careers at big chemical companies to make DWR-like textile treatments using natural raw materials.
