Summer ReSprouting Checklist Wondering how to resprout into a better, healthier, greener, fitter you this summer? Tear this out and start checkin' 'em off. You'll be sprouting again in no time. ❒❒ Start or improve your composting system Summer is the perfect time to start composting because the warm temperature activates the microbes needed for active composting. See page 26 for professional help in setting up a system or page 25 for compost and home composting supplies. ❒❒ Start shopping at the farmer's market Nature's luscious local bounty is invading Long Island. Support local farmers, improve our food security, and reduce pesticide pollution in our soil and waterways. See page 15 for an exhaustive list of Nassau's farmers' markets. ❒❒ Try kayaking Kayaking is a great way to stay cool in the summer and get a great upper body workout. Long Island is an incredible place to explore beautiful coasts and wetlands and appreciate our impact on them. See page 8 for free trips. ❒❒ Give time and a healthy yard on Father's Day Does your dad spend entirely too much time mowing the grass? Mine does. How about the gift of professional green lawn maintenance? Check out page 26. ❒❒ Make your dry cleaning bags reuseable I just made the switch and I'm never going back. Check out It's My Bag dry cleaning bags on page 26. ❒❒ Go humane and grass-fed for your July 4th barbecue Happy cows are yummy cows. 'Nuff said. Page 18 and page 15. ❒❒ Reaffirm your healthy weight goals There's nothing like Long Beach to remind you of those healthy weight goals you so covered up over the winter. See "Nutritionists & Food Counselors" (p17), "Weight Loss" (p25), and "Personal Training" (p13) for help in your journey. ❒❒ Get an energy audit Before your eyeball-widening summer cooling bills arrive, figure out where you can plug the leaks. See pages 26 and 27. Healthfully & Greenfully, April Zubko

What is Slow Food?

Slow Food is a Way of Living and Eating That Links the Pleasure of Food With Community and the Environment

Eats This convivium seeks to connect people in our area with the sources of local, seasonal and responsibly grown and raised food. We support our local and regional farmers and farmers markets, Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) and other sources of real food. We bring people together through the sharing of pot luck meals, tasting events, film screenings—any opportunity to get together to enjoy the pleasures of the table. We participate in Slow Food in School programs to connect the principles of Slow Food in the youngest eaters—many of whom may not realize that food really does come from the ground!

• Discover local food resources • Help enact healthy school lunch programs • Enjoy fun, tasteful meals, films, and events • Help preserve our rich American heritage

DID YOU KNOW? Slow Food maintains the “US Ark of Taste,” a catalog of over 200 delicious foods in danger of extinction? By promoting and eating Ark products, we help ensure they remain in production and on our plates. Visit www.slowfoodusa.org for the complete list.

I believe that a great number of our physical symptoms start with stress. Through the use of acupuncture, various relaxation techniques, essential oils and Chinese Herbal Medicine I effectively put people on a path of healing. My gentle, alternative approach relieves health issues and helps individuals get relief from the physical symptoms and fatigue that come from juggling a stressful life. I invite everyone to come in for a free 20 minute stress relieving session to get used to the needles and to get a feel for the relaxing benefits that acupuncture can provide. —Maria

FACT: Eco-Friendly Cabinetry Doesn’t Always Cost More

Winner of the NARI 2010 Green Recognition Award

Kitchens are the hearts of our homes, our families, and our health. This is the reason we carefully craft our custom cabinets with the environment in mind. Our eco-friendly cabinet lines are finished with waterborne stains, paints and coatings that emit minimal harmful pollutants and irritants. Cabinets are constructed from environmentally preferable materials such as FSC-certified plywood, rapidly renewable resources such as bamboo plywood; no added urea formaldehyde (NAUF), MDF, particle board & plywood; and are available with recycled content. And surprisingly, these features can cost the same or even less than traditional custom cabinets.

• Get peace of mind—deal with the green cabinet expert on Long Island • Keep your home healthy & free of VOCs

DID YOU KNOW? Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals that create long term chronic health effects as well as indoor air pollution? Major indoor sources include paints, coatings, solvents, and formaldehyde in wall boards and furniture.

I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for about 10 years, and never have I ever felt more welcome, and more comfortable than at Om Sweet Om. Each class is wonderful, and unique and I always leave feeling SO much better than when I arrived. Thank you for the opportunity to practice, learn and grow with you. —Sara Broder
