Editor’s Note Happy New Year, Fam! By this time you’ve taken stock of a long year passed and evaluations have been made. Was it a good year? What it less than a good year? The beauty of it all is it’s all over now. I hope you’ve learned some powerful lessons and some good has come from time well spent. Close the book on 2018 and keep your memories fond. Dwell not in the musings of that which you cannot change. Look forward to new opportunities and positive intentions. If self-improvement is your goal, start with manageable portions, like hanging up your clothes after you’ve decided on your outfit du jour. Life comes at you fast, but no one said you have to take it on all at once. I believe each and every one of you have the ability to make magic in your lives. If philanthropy is your bag, start in your home town. There’s an old adage which suggests: “If you can’t change the world, work to change the world around you”. I’m excited for the new year and what it will bring. I’m looking forward to the new people I’m going to meet, the friends I’m going to make, the clothes I’m going to buy, the adventures I’m going to embark on, and the food I’m going to restrict myself from eating. Just kidding on that last concept; I love food. I love adventurous food, infusions, spices and textures. I’d like to share a little secret I’ve held close to my heart. This little treasure is something I’ve pulled out to thrill and excite. Though it sounds odd, I would like to assure you, in all my years, I’ve never tasted anything as rich and luxurious. Also, if you find some, please forward on the location to your friendly Beachside Resident affiliates: truffle honey. I know, crazy. A dear friend introduced it to me a few years back and I’ve yet to find anything more delectable. Add it to a well-balanced charcuterie board and you’ll unravel the palates of you and your loved ones. Our friends at 87 Main Street Spirits has produced a proper meat and cheese tray for me on more than one occasion, may I recommend a visit? Perhaps, with enough brouhaha, we can encourage a small but divinely-tasty addition to their ensemble? January’s issue is all about food: who, what, when and why. The fine folk who help me to make it all happen at The Beachside Resident have assisted in curating a few lists of local dining spots. I would encourage you to step out into the new year with adventurous palates! Bring a friend, take on new flavors and (if you’re into that sort of thing) post on social media. Forego the chain restaurants in lieu of something unique. There is something out there for everyone! I do wish to include some “HONORABLE MENTIONS” which didn’t make the more obvious lists, starting with the au ju sub at Jonathans in Cocoa Beach. If you haven’t tried it before… well, you probably haven’t had a late night in Downtown and required a bite to survive, they’re DELISH! Also, a total solid would be the blue berry muffins at “The Blueberry Muffin” in Melbourne Beach. They’re EVERYTHING! May this year bring you new happiness, new goals, new achievements and new inspiration in your life. Wishing you a year fully loaded with happiness! Wishing every day to be filled with success and prosperity for you. Here’s to the New Year and all it brings. Cheers! Cheers!

C O N T R I B U TO R S P OT L I G H T M I S T I B L U D A Y M C D E R M OT T Misti is a happily married mother of three, a busy entrepreneur and an invisible illness warrior. She shares stories of others with invisible illnesses on her blog while also directing and creating documentary to raise awareness. There are twelve million misdiagnosis per year! Many are fighting battles that are not visible and she hopes to make a change to lower that number. She is currently going back to school to obtain a nursing degree. Because of her chronic illness, she has always had to juggle multiple jobs to make ends meet. Having a 9-5 full time job is impossible when needing to see multiple doctors per month and take frequent sicks days, or recovery days when in pain. Staying busy keeps her mind occupied. One of her many endeavors, Wildling Apothecary, is a natural and toxic-free product line with CBD, soaps, skincare, spice blends, teas, perfume oils, beard oils and more. She is also in the process of writing a book, which she has found very healing and therapeutic. She has a genetic condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and it has an umbrella of comorbidities, causing chronic pain and fatigue and greatly affecting her heart. She has had four cardiac operations, open heart surgery and a recent pacemaker implant. She also had a small battle with cancer in the beginning of the year and multiple surgeries throughout her life. You would never know from speaking to her, however, as she is the epitome of positivity and radiance. Misti says, “I am still here and I am not just fighting for myself anymore. I am fighting for the rest of you. I am fighting for healthcare and to make a change, no matter how small.”

MONEYTALK By Steve Hauser

In the spirit of the new year, let’s build an investment portfolio. Normally, this would be the in the final chapter, but we muscled through financial basics. Time to have some fun. Later, we’ll dive into more advanced trading techniques and then circle back to answer questions and clarify. You already have investments: real estate, art, jewelry, and anything else of value. We’re going to focus on the stock market. Most advisors will follow the asset allocation models that have been around for years. The theme is stable diversification. Imagine your portfolio as a pie. The primary ingredients are Large Cap, Medium Cap, Small Cap, International, and Fixed Income. In other words, big companies, medium companies, small ones and foreign stock as well as bonds and cash. Unlike a pie, which has specific amounts of each ingredient, your proportions will depend on your specific situation and risk tolerance. A well-balanced portfolio will be surprisingly stable. As some investments go up, others go down. The overall direction should be upward but they won’t all run together. Sticking with the theme of diversification, each segment listed above should have more than one or two stocks. How to pick, you ask? It’s very easy. In prior months we discussed indexes such as the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrials. The S&P 500 is a perfect example of a large cap index. There are dozens of indexes and they come in all shapes and flavors. Mutual funds and ETFs are the easiest way to invest in these indexes. If you have an online broker, you can search for them using their screening tools. Simply screen for a Large Cap Index fund. If you decide your portfolio will be equally weighted, then put 20% in that fund and do the same thing with each of the others. If you don’t want equal weights, you can make the portfolio more conservative by overloading on the Fixed Income section. If you want the portfolio to be more aggressive, overweight the stock side. The exact mix is up to you. No one can predict the future or the market. Anyone who tells you they can is trying to sell you something. Be careful if you overweight fixed income. When interest rates rise, bond prices will fall. I’ll explain why when we talk bonds. So there you go. The bottom line is diversification. It provides opportunity and stability to any portfolio. The market is emotional with wild fluctuations. Ignore the waves and the tides. Ride the current. Focusing on the long term is better than trying to time the market.

If beef is what’s for dinner, there’s no better grill technique than the Brazilian-style churrasco, the tradition of cooking meat on skewers or over hot coals and embers. Mouthwatering, freshly cooked meat options, fresh vegetables, salads, beans, fried bananas, and the list goes on… We’ve heard absolutely nothing but stellar reviews on the joint from our local foodies. Gather and celebrate the Brazilian way! Perfect for intimate dinners, celebrations & everything in between. Important foodie note: Estampa Gaucha offers a PROPER brunch!

We went to Pompano Grill for the 1st time last night. Small, quaint, nice ambiance. Service was e actly as you’d expect. Dinner was delicious - the escargot is not typical and bursting with flavor served with a nice loaf of perfectly crusty bread to soak up all the yummy sauce.

BOOK REVIEWS By Gary Roen

The Bounty of Central Florida Valerie Hart Winner Cookbooks www.cookingandtips.com 9780974867601, $22.00

For so long people around the world would only think of Florida as the home of Disney World. But the state has so much more to offer and author Valerie Hart shows in her cookbook The Bounty of Central Florida so many tasty recipes that anyone can enjoy anytime. A delicacy is alligator tail that when cooked properly has the taste of chicken, or different uses for citrus like lemons, limes, oranges, and tangerines. She shows that many of them can be used in jams or jellies along with grapes and berries. She also shows many uses for bananas that people have not thought to do. The Bounty of Central Florida reveals a very different side of the state of Florida that anyone in the world can enjoy.

The Homesick Texan Cookbook Lisa Fain Hachette www.HatchetteBookGroupUSA.com 9781401324261, $29.99

Texas is famous for The Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, three modern day Presidents of the United States, and The Homesick Texan Cookbook . The author, who moved to New York, began the book as a love of her native state of Texas because she missed the food of the state that she was fond of. She has collected recipes and dishes she has known and discovered while she lived in Texas. For each section she gives a little background and tells about some of the items needed to prepare some of the concoctions. Of course, there are Tex-Mex entrees but there are also foods for all occasions that sound scrumptious. The Homesick Texan is a food lover’s paradise of flavorful tastes that anyone can enjoy.

ProActive Nutrition With A Brazilian Twist Lucia Camara JHIC, AADP www.wellnessandnnutritioninstitute.com 97812937183226, $24.95

Unlike many cookbooks that preach about health issues, ProActive Nutrition With A Brazilian Twist is filled with many different wonderful tasty recipes. Camara explains the importance of using vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, seeds, and other things in the preparation of meals. There are all kinds of delicious recipes starting with appetizers and ending with breakfast items that are wonderful ways to try something totally different and eat a healthy balanced meal for all different times of the day or night. ProActive Nutrition With A Brazilian Twist is a surefire cookbook that has a lot of new items to try.

Gary Roen is the author of Journey, Slotski’s World, The Forgotten Father, Look at Me World, and the co-author of Cats, Cats, and More Cats .

RESTAURANT OF THE MONTH

Fresh Scratch Bistro

By Samantha Gallo

In the small but lively seaside town of Indian Harbor Beach sits a seemingly simple restaurant named Fresh Scratch Bistro. Facing A1A and sharing the area with a popular local gym, it seems to be a perfect location for a restaurant offering a menu with such fresh and healthy ingredients. After trying one of their entrees I can assure you that simple is an understatement when describing this restaurant. As I walked through the front door I first noticed the dim lighting, beautifully stained seating areas and the immediate attention of the host. Wanting to get the vibe of the outside seating area I followed the host out to the patio. Although the atmosphere inside was very nice and sophisticated the patio gives a more casual vibe while still staying elegant. I first noticed the nice setup of a lounge area that flowed nicely into the tables, which sat parallel to the bar. Behind the bar hangs three flat screen televisions, perfect for watching the game while enjoying one of their amazing margaritas, which I definitely ordered as soon as I sat down. Upon receiving the menu I was excited to see a variety of bowls offered with your option of the type of meat along with a handful of Italian dishes and a very nice children’s menu, which included grilled shrimp and tortellini. I ordered the Asian Bowl but vetoed the meat option and my lunch date, my four-year-old daughter, ordered the grilled shrimp with veggies. I was very happy with the timing from order to delivery. It took long enough for my daughter and I to have conversation and to enjoy the light sea breeze coming over the dunes. Each meal is prepared from scratch so we were prepared by our waiter that we might have to wait for excellence. Our food presentation was beautiful and the flavors were spectacular. In the Asian Bowl there is a surprising herb used that, in my opinion, made the dish what it is. Every flavor worked together in culinary harmony and I truly enjoyed my meal (and that delicious margarita!)

I was able to steal a few moments of the owner, Brano, time while there. The restaurant is formerly known as Brano’s Italian Grill with the main focus on, you guessed it, Italian cuisine. When asked what his inspiration was to change the type of menu offered he says he simply wanted the opportunity to expand the menu beyond only Italian cuisine and wanted to have various entrees full of color and flavor. Brano has lived in the Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach area for ten years now and when he is not being a culinary genius he enjoys golfing. He says the most ordered entrée is also his favorite on the menu - the Risotto Bowl. It was honestly very hard for me to choose between their variety of delicious bowl options! As we discussed his plans for the future of this newly reopened establishment I see so much passion in his wanting to offer locals a place to bring friends and family where you can enjoy yourself and eat well. Live music is currently offered on the patio five nights a week and you can keep up with who is playing live when on their Facebook page. Fresh Scratch Bistro also offers on-site catering, large group reservations and can even cater weddings. Grab the family and stop in this weekend to have a delicious lunch or dinner that you’ll definitely want to tell your friends about!

OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Pita Paradise

Tell us about how Pita Paradise got started. When and how? The owners were long-time friends, prior to moving to the USA, in Lebanon. Both men’s ambitions were to come to the USA for other business ventures, however, given their experience in cooking this fine food, they decided to go with what they knew, which was Lebanese food.The doors officially opened in 2015, September. The original location was the Merritt Square Food Court.   What has changed about your store? Recently the menu was expanded, adding to it a large selection of new dishes and Lebanese creations. The Lebanese-style wings have been a big hit! Also, as of December, a second dining area was constructed to increase space and add additional seating. It’s beautiful; accented with two, enormous barn doors and a spacious hall. The designers really put special efforts to give it a middle-eastern aesthetic.   What might people be surprised you serve? We have some incredible specials! The traditional dishes such as falafel, kibbeh, baba ghanoush, lentil soup, lamb shank, kabobs and chops can easily be found, in addition to chicken shawarma, Mediterranean style grouper and salmon and a Lebanese style burger. The menu is growing, so stay tuned for even more great dishes! 18

thebeachsideresident.com J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 9

What’s one of the most popular dish you serve? Definitely the lamb gyro, if you haven’t tried it, the gyro should be your first taste of Pita Paradise. What’s the most dramatic way you’ve seen your restaurant change over the years? Definitely the expansion! What started smaller, in a different location has since grown larger and larger. Expanding the doors was one of the most dramatic changes we’re happy have been made. Describe one of the biggest challenges you face in running this business? Appealing to different cultures and tastebuds. We appeal to gluten free and vegetarians. Any food restriction we can accommodate and it’s far healthier, overall. What does the future hold for Pita Paradise? We’re not looking to franchise.We’d like to stay a family-owned and operated enterprise. We want to feed everyone and ensure the very best quality of Lebanese food we can offer!


RECIPES By Misti Blu Day

@mistibluday

Pineapple Fried Rice Ingredients: Fresh pineapple Rice Edamame Chopped onion Turmeric Ginger Gluten Free Soy Sauce Coconut oil Scallions Garlic salt Egg Sriracha Shredded carrots Cashews Shrimp (can substitute chicken or tofu) Directions: I always make enough to feed an army, so I will share the instructions for a large portion. There will be plenty for a dinner party and lunch the next day. Cut the measurements in half if you don’t want to make a large amount. Boil two cups of rice in four cups of water. In a sauté pan, sauté chopped 1/3 of a white onion and one pound of shrimp with turmeric and garlic seasoning in coconut oil. Steam the

edamame; I usually just get the microwavable bag. As I cook my ingredients, I pour them into a large bowl or casserole dish to mix at the end. When the shrimp and onions are cooked, pour in the large bowl and start sautéing the pineapple and carrots. After the pineapple and carrots are cooked or warmed up, toss them into the bowl and add more coconut oil to the pan to toast the cashews. The last step with the sauté pan is to fry the rice after it is done cooking. Toss in gluten-free soy sauce and two eggs and fry until the eggs are fully cooked. Mix everything in the large bowl, then top with green onions and sriracha. I cook some of the ingredients separately because they won’t all fit in a pan (unless you cook a smaller amount). Everything cooks quickly, so why not break it up instead of having all of the burners going at once. You can also add broccoli, red peppers and other fresh veggies to this dish. I added quinoa in my last batch. You can serve this dish inside the pineapple for a fun presentation. Best wishes, Misti Blu Day McDermott www.mistibludream.com

RESIDENT OF THE MONTH:

By Jamie Mackenzie @jmackimagery

Cory Redwine From a successful graphic design company to owning a fleet of charter boats, Cory Redwine’s talents and interests are as diverse and eclectic as our little beach town itself. Although I am looking forward to booking a fishing charter in the near future, it is Cory’s unique way of giving back to our community that truly inspires me. While many of us participate in monthly “beach cleanups”, Cory creates awe inspiring sculptures from trash she collects on our local beaches every day. “My husband surfs and we are constantly on the beach, so I started walking around picking up trash to pass time,” she explained. Armed with her bucket and fanny pack, she gathers debris of all kinds from the sand and seaweed, much of which captures her eye because of its unique characteristics. I could hear the giddiness in her voice as she recalled the excitement of finding a doll’s foot that was just too special to place in the trash bucket. After a short time of collecting, sterilizing, and sorting her treasures, she found herself looking around thinking, “What am I going to do with all of this stuff?” The old shed out back soon received a makeover into a new art studio, with trinkets stored in glass jars and colorful plastic sandcastle buckets (which were no doubt also found during her beachcombing excursions). The question was, “What now?” Her husband, who specializes in marine art suggested, “Make a fish,”... so, she did. “I made a dolphin and people went nuts when I posted it online,” she said, still sounding shocked that people were so taken by her

labor of love. Then came a wahoo, sailfish, and numerous other crafty earth-saving creations; including a tarpon, for which she was commissioned by The Rising Tide Tap & Table to create a unique piece for their hip restaurant in Port Canaveral. It’s no surprise Cory has been invited to participate in special events that support our environment and to speak to our local youth at elementary schools around Brevard County, as her art is literally SAVING OUR OCEANS. “That’s where it starts, we need to teach our kids to pick up after themselves and others,” she stated, placing emphasis on “and others”. “The whole point [of her art] is to start conversations that inspire others to NOT walk over it, but to pick up the trash.” With January being “Food Month”, I encourage you to take advantage of the amenities at Port Canaveral, enjoy a meal at The Rising Tide and take a gander at the stunning example of Cory’s craft. While there, take a stroll and stop by to visit Cory and her husband Derek at All Water Adventures. And if you see any trash along your path, pick it up. You may be inspired to create your own work of art. Learn more about Cory’s artwork @SeaRedwine on Instagram.

Sometimes I forget how big I am; I think I’m a lap dog, and love to smother anyone who lets me. Luckily I’m so tall that we are face to face when you sit down. My family always tells me people need “space” but I don’t think I know what that means. So I get closer and breathe into your face until you love me. My favorite things in life are food, adventures with Mom and Dad... and of course lots of love and butt rubs. I LOVE being outside and exploring! Some of my favorite memories are taking a canoe to the island and running around like a crazy pup... or those times I went camping with my family. Once a raccoon tried to eat our food; he didn’t know I was there until I let out a big “ruff!” And the raccoon jumped and ran as fast as he could - that was funny! I’m always up for an adventure. Oh! And my pup friends are the best! Sometimes they join my adventures with me. I make friends very easily. I’m outgoing, sweet, and

INSHORE

CAPTAIN ALEX HUGHEY Changing things up a bit! What a great month of fishing! From tripletail and bull redfish nearshore, to skinny-water tailing redfish and trout in the flats, we have seen some good variety this month! The weather is finally starting to get into a wintertime pattern; cool temperatures with breezy north and westerly winds. With this being said, the next month or so at least I’ll be focusing more of my fishing inshore! The snook bite has slowed consistently but there are still some to be caught around our inlets and passes all the way from Ponce to Sebastian. Smaller live baits have been the ticket; anything from greenies and pogies when available to pins and pigfish - the smaller the better! I’ll be focusing more of my fishing towards the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon. The cooler weather has really turned the trout bite on as expected! Some days average 20 to 30 fish of all sizes from 15- to 25-inches. Most fish are being caught around deeper troughs and grass flats in the 3- to 5-foot range! Live shrimp on a popping cork or an 1/8 oz Mission Fish’n jig-head with a Gulp

Redfish caught with Captain Alex Shrimp is a deadly combo this time of year. Subsequently, the redfish bite has picked up as well! Most fish have been chewing a bit better with the cooler weather a little later in the day. I’m starting my trips around 9 o’clock, if not a little later, and really taking advantage of the afternoon bite. These fish have been responding well to small Gulp Shrimp and weedless jerk-baits, in pearl white, bounced slowly off the bottom. The north end of Mosquito Lagoon has been the best bet - most fish are between 15- and 30-inches. As usual with the river, try to catch and release for future generations! Captain Alex Hughey

¿ DÓNDE ESTÁ EL NIÑO? Written by Callie Boyer @supercalliefragillistic

Meteorologists have been speculating since the beginning of the year about whether or not we’ll see an El Niño event this winter, which is a naturally occurring phenomenon that happens about every two to seven years. This year, there’s around an 80% chance that we’ll experience the effects of El Niño by February, although it’s forecasted to be less powerful than in years past. The last time we saw El Niño was in 2016 and it was concurrently the hottest year in recorded history. It’s important to keep an eye on the development of this event, since it can have widespread, global impacts due to the atmospheric changes caused by warming oceanic temperatures driven by the movement of eastto-west tradewinds in the Pacific. El Niño occurs when the tradewinds are halted or reversed and the warmed water begins to spread back eastwards, which changes temperature and rainfall patterns globally. Scientists call this chain reaction teleconnection ( tele-meaning transmission over a distance) and it can affect any region in the entire world. As the water temperature rises in the eastern Pacific, it creates a high pressure system that moves north and east towards Canada, and pushes a low pressure system towards the Southeast United States. This causes the Pacific Northwest, parts of the Rocky Mountains, and the Ohio River Valley to be unusually warm and dry, which sets up conditions for droughts, forest fires, and flash flooding in these areas. In the Southeast, it’s more likely to see wetter conditions and severe weather, such as tornadoes and flooding. There’s good and bad effects of such an extreme weather pattern. On one hand, besides meteorological changes, there could be socio-economic effects such as dealing with natural disasters and water scarcity. On the other hand, the warmer water temperatures in the Pacific create a greater variance in the cold air blowing down from the Arctic, causing the Jet Stream to drop even further south. This pushes energy from the Gulf towards the east coast, creating above average, short period swell along the eastern Atlantic coast and Caribbean. However, with a weak El Niñow still currently being forecasted, it may be time to start saving up for a surf trip. 28

People are so available, and available everywhere. Blame the internet. Internet dating is the devil and dating apps are his henchmen. I fully believe it is the readiness and quickness of finding someone online that leads to this idea of unlimited buffets of potential dating partners. If someone is a relatively decent looking individual with minimal charm, they can continue to date and never have to commit. Finding the right person isn’t an easy feat. If it were so easy, we would all be happy now, wouldn’t we? The “right man” is a broad statement. I feel what you’re really looking for are tips for identifying a man who wants a relationship. That’s something easier to define. The man looking for a relationship will most likely not have sex with you the first night you hang out together. A man looking for a relationship will not typically pick you up at the bar. A man looking for a relationship will take the time to woo you, show off his mane and bring you food. He wants to impress, not just mate. Most importantly, a person interested in a relationship, will ask questions about you. They will want to get to know you beyond what turns you on or what drink you’re having for the night. Keep an eye out and be diligent. They are out there, and wondering the same thing you are.

CHEFS CORNER

Chef Moises of Tiny Turtle, Cocoa Beach

Tell us Chef, who are you and where do you hail from? Moises Correa from Maya Guez, Puerto Rico

Where can we find you? Tiny Turtle, 249 Minutemen Causeway, Cocoa Beach 32931 thetinyturtlecocoabeach.com

Tell us a little about your professional background. In this area I’ve been a chef in a couple different restaurants: Silvestro’s, Tuscany Grill and D.I.G. Bistro. None of them really have anything to do with what I do now. I learned to cook my cuisine in my grandma’s kitchen when I was 9 years old. A pinch of this, a dash of that. You create your own thing.

How did you come up with the concept for your restaurant? Living in Cocoa Beach I recognized what was needed here. I wanted to bring the same flavor and love for food, but on a different scale, so locals can come more than once a month; something they’d want to return to multiple times a week. It’s fine food made with love and care - not the standard, junk-for-food you find these days.

How long did it take you to perfect it? All my life. If you look at my spice rack, it’s a whole wall. So this is something I’ve been developing all my life.

What inspired you to open up a restaurant? There’s plenty of breakfast, Italian and other little restaurants around town. Tiny Turtle was originally supposed to be a food truck, but life gave me an opportunity to make something more permanent, so we took a chance. We wanted something local to feed our friends and families. 30

Which dish or recipe are you most proud of? The sofrito bowl is the staple. That’s the dish I opened with; it brings a little of everything. You’ve got the rice and black beans, then you can add the protein. The Island Pork is a Peurto Rican staple; it’s cooked 10 hours. If you don’t like pork, you can chose the braised chicken, which is a combination of turmeric, jerk and curry with a dash and splash of other (secret) spices - it’s the Jamaican side of the Caribbean without the big heat. Or you could choose the beef picadillo, a sautéed ground beef finished up with white wine or beer. That last part is Chef’s choice.

Tell us what it is about your restaurant that sets you apart from the rest. When you visit the Tiny Turtle, even though you’re in a beachy atmosphere, you can be sure the food we cook doesn’t come out of a can or a microwave. It’s fine dining, but we keep it street. We’re also one of the only restaurants that doesn’t offer plastic. We make it a point to keep plastics off the beach.

What’s your favorite perk of being a chef? Creating something new, on the fly. We all do it, we just don’t realize it. You open the fridge and you see what you have because you don’t want to go out - you just want to be lazy, so you create something. We all have a little chef in us.

What would you order for your last meal? Oooooo… wow. When it comes down to it, I’m a meat and potato guy. There’s nothing like a nicely cooked steak. Grilled well on the outside so it’s got that crunch but it’s tender in the center. Steak and potato, simple. That’s what I always eat. Why, after 43 years, would I change it?

Where do you spend your time when you’re not running one of the most exciting restaurants on the Space Coast? Home. I love home.

LOCAL SCRIBE VITALISM Gut Health

By Summer Cowhig, Community Herbalist @passiflorareincarnata

We’ve all had our ups and downs when it comes to fad diets and New Year’s resolutions to take better care of ourselves. Ultimately what we really want is to eat sustainably, boost our nutrient intake and feel more VITAL! One of the main areas of concern when cultivating a strong vital force is gut health. We have all dealt with our share of digestive problems - which can ripple into so many other bodily system dis-eases we treat. Our gut lining is a physical and immune system barrier which simultaneously absorbs nutrients and secretes digestive hormones, enzymes, etc. The epithelial layer is the second fastest reproducing tissue in the body; the whole thing regenerates every 5-6 days. Interference with the regeneration of these intestinal cells can cause a weakening in your gut lining. It is quite common and can be caused by multiple factors including but not limited to: poor diet, nutrient and protein deficiencies, chronic ingestion of food antigens, stress - the list goes on. The gut lining will show deficits in nutrition or environmental stressors more dramatically and more quickly than any other tissue. The weakening of your gut lining can cause inflammation, hyperactive immune responses, pain, acid reflux, ulcers, and more. Normally this barrier is protected by a layer of friendly, non-invasive bacteria which, including the rest of the bacterial population, is like it’s own organ. But with antibiotics being fed to promote growth in

conventional meat industries and our casual antibiotic use, we are dealing with a broad spectrum of antibiotics that have a catastrophic effect on our microbiome. These bacterias feed off of otherwise indigestible fibers such as inulin, pectin and various polysaccharides. The right bacteria is necessary to stimulate the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients. Quick tip: to increase selected bacterial populations, you can find an array of those indigestible fibers in 8-10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. (Not as big of a challenge as you would think!) Add abundant protein, fruits and vegetables, a gut healing tea, and the necessary vitamins, minerals and probiotics, and you have yourself a protocol! However, if you have all of this in place and still do not feel any relief, more than likely you are having an inflammatory response to food peptides. Often these are the foods that we “crave” (false hunger) in moments when we are stressed or rushed or plain old dealing with life. Besides sometimes imperfect lab testing, there is really only one technique to determine specific food triggers. I was specially trained to ‘nourish before purge’ and use highly supportive, vitalist practices to coach someone through this process. When you approach nutrition from a holistic, vitalist tradition, you use encouraging methods to nourish your body and mind before removing anything in your everyday food routines. By using these methods, you can be sure to set yourself up on a well grounded path of health and wellness to last a lifetime. JANUARY 2019

Recharging Yourself for the New Year By Misti Blu Day McDermott @mistibluday Congratulations! You survived the holidays! The post-holiday apocalyptic New Year is filled with crumpled wrapping paper, lights still glimmering throughout the streets and sparkling on homes, all while our bank accounts have seen better days. The truth is, not everyone is filled with joy this time of year. For some, they may be missing a loved one or are financially burdened. Many people live paycheck-to-paycheck and having to spend your month’s income on gifts that add up to the same price of your bills is beyond stressful. Here are a few ways to lighten the load and help you recover from this past year’s holiday battle of the blues: Create Memories or Homemade Goods: If you are on a budget and still have birthdays, or even Valentine’s Day coming up, surely you can afford memories or to make something. You can prevent your bank account from causing you financial grief, which can allow you to relax and enjoy life a little more. For example, gift your parents a homemade dinner and game night that you host. They can choose the date and come over and be spoiled. Or, gift your significant other a coupon book for massages, dinner, cleaning and some X-rated fun. Gift your friend or sister a night of babysitting. These are all thoughtful, free and memorable. Another option is making homemade gifts like candles, body scrubs, art or even baked goods. This is a great option all year long and for the next holiday season. Self Care: During times of stress we forget to take care of ourselves. Maybe skip a night out and listen to music or read a book instead. Decompress with a bath and wine. Hell, a bath in wine! Call old friends or family and catch up on the phone. Treat yourself to a massage. Drinking plenty of fluids and making sure your nutrition is not suffering is also important. Vitamin D and folate deficiencies can cause depression and anxiety. Just like the saying, “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” you have to take care of yourself. Herbal teas are a good way to maintain your stress levels. Kava, valerian root, lemon balm and ashwagandha root are great relaxing teas. CBD oil is a natural option for managing stress, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Stress management starts with taking care of yourself.

Volunteer: If you still feel like you are in a funk, volunteering is an excellent way to bring you back to reality. Sometimes helping others in unfortunate situations can help change our perspective, humble us or make us more grateful. You can volunteer at a shelter and serve food to those in need or donate your time to an organization. My favorite is the Humane Society. Walking dogs and petting cats is so therapeutic and the animals are so grateful. It gives you a sense of purpose. Get a Hobby: I’ll admit that life can get stagnant sometimes, even if everything is great. Shake things up and challenge yourself to do something new like yoga, painting, jogging, martial arts, baking, blogging, flying paper airplanes... anything! Hobbies are outlets and we all need to do something other than work, poop, shower, eat, repeat. Find your passion and spark in life. Save up for a road trip. Plan fun adventures - even if it is by yourself. You don’t need a copilot. Sometimes it is great to just let your mind wander and enjoy the journey. Waiting to live and have fun until you find someone to do these things with is a sad excuse that is holding you back. Learn to love yourself and your company. Make new friends and be open to possibilities. Don’t Be Afraid To Get Help: There is absolutely nothing wrong with seeing a therapist. Honestly, everyone should see a therapist. We live in a time where we are trained to smile and be positive. We are human. We feel things! It is okay to feel. Sometimes our friends are not always the best person to vent to. A professional can help you find the tools to cope and manage stress. It is literally their job and they aren’t waiting for their turn to speak. The suicide prevention lifeline number is 1-800-273-8255. You never know what is around the corner, no matter how dark this chapter seems. Your next chapter could be the best times of your life. Giving up hope robs you of that and spreads your pain to those who love you.


KEEP FLORIDA WEIRD WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM

DOUGHNUT FIX A man was awarded a $37,500 cash settlement after police arrested him for possession of what they thought was meth. Turns out it was doughnut glaze, even though a field test read positive for meth. Only after a second test, done by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, was the substance proven to be sugar. Perhaps it was an innocent mistake, or perhaps the temptation just proved to be too much for those poor officers.

WANT A COOKIE? A 70-year-old man was arrested after giving an acquaintance a cookie without telling her that it was laced with marijuana. He was charged with three felonies, booked into jail, and released on his own recognizance. The woman who ate the cookie said she began to feel “woozy” and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. When asked why he didn’t tell her about the marijuana, he said the amount was so small he didn’t think it would affect her. He should’ve just called me, instead!

NO FREE PIZZA A man grabbed a handful of rocks and threw them through a pizza display case after employees told him they did not have any free food. The employees said he yelled at a waitress when she said she couldn’t give him a free slice of pizza. He was escorted outside by employees, and then started to throw rocks back inside, breaking the case. He was arrested, charged, and ordered never to go back to the pizzaria. Guess he will have to order delivery next time.

An employee at a McDonald’s was allegedly assaulted due to a broken ice cream machine. The employee informed a group of customers ordering in the drive through that the ice cream machine was down for maintenance.After three of the customers entered the McDonald’s and saw another customer with ice cream, they approached the counter, allegedly grabbed the employee by the hair and struck her. The employee was not injured, the suspects got away, and the ice cream machine is alleged to still be broken.

PANCAKE BREAKFAST

A man was charged after sitting in a chair and eating in the middle of a street. Police received a call about a man sitting in a crosswalk with a small table in front of him, eating pancakes. The man was gone when police arrived, but they found out that he lived about 100 yards from where it happened. He was interviewed and admitted he did it as a prank. Police say the man’s actions prevented vehicles from moving and created an obstruction. Fortunately, no cars hit him and turned him into a pancake.

WAFFLE RUN

Police arrested a woman on child neglect charges for letting a 14-year-old boy drive while she was drinking.When she was pulled over the woman said she had five drinks and was too drunk to drive. Police also said there was an open beer in the cup holder of the car. She told officers the teen is her boyfriend’s son, and that she wanted him to drive to Waffle House. Although the call of the waffle is hard to resist, maybe next time she should try Uber.

There’s going to be a lot of fires this month that people will need your help putting out... Thank the stars for the water sign! Use your excellent sense of tact and grace this month to avoid any pitfalls in your personal life, and be prepared to mediate.

Pisces

Feb 19 - Mar 20

No one seems to like a critic, but everyone loves to read the reviews; don’t stop being you. People are going to talk no matter what, so why not give them something to talk about? As the saying goes, “no publicity is bad publicity”.

Aries

Mar 21 - Apr 19

Aries, we get it, you’re not afraid to try new things. But sooner or later you will find yourself eating alone. Step back a bit; let others have a say. Being headstrong definitely has its virtues, but it is only through self-discipline that we can allow our talents to truly flourish.

Taurus

Apr 20 - May 20

It’s a new year, Taurus, the time to let go of the past and allow new beginnings flourish. Don’t get your rocky mountain oysters in a bind; change is inevitable and can bring some sweet to your saltiness. Embrace the change and go with the flow. After all, “change is the only constant.”

Gemini

May 21 - Jun 20

You are that special spice everyone is looking for this month, and your ability to adapt makes you fit for any meal. You’re going to be in high demand, and you deserve to let loose a little. Let others take control, and see where it takes you. Don’t be afraid of trying something new.

Take pride in your ability to take care of yourself and those you hold dear. You don’t simply get food - you hunt for it, and there are many animals out there looking to eat your leftovers. Let them; it’s what keeps you on top.

You’re like gas station sushi - some hungry, reckless soul thought you looked good from afar, but is now suffering the lingering effects of your emotional botulism. You’re a master of facades but you’re not fooling anyone, anymore; you’re just as toxic as that leftover sushi. Get your act together; denial isn’t just a river in Egypt, baby.

You are anyone’s sweet tooth fulfillment, Libra; you make it difficult to take just one bite. The “new year, new me” season is upon you, and you’re tired of the same-old-sameold. Everyone wants a piece - don’t even think about settling for less. Even if Virgo is out there looking like a snack.

Scorpio

Oct 23 - Nov 21

You’re on fire, Scorpio, and rightly so. There is a passion stirring deep within you that wants to get out, so bring closure to any areas of your life that are holding you back and get down to the nitty gritty once and for all. You know what you have to do - now go do it!

Sagittarius

Nov 22 - Dec 21

Your soul is hangry, Sag - you’ve waited until the point of starvation to get up to eat. You’re not finding satisfaction in the same things anymore, and maybe it’s because you’ve outgrown them. Take some time to get in touch with what is going to really feed your soul, and stop being so hard on yourself. You’ve come a long way.

ALBUM REVIEWS

Reviews by Fursey O'veebee.

ALBUM TITLE: MEMPHIS SONG

ALBUM TITLE: PEACE, LOVE & LOUD GUITARS

First off, I would like to say thanks to Pati deVries over at Devious Planet for hooking us up with some great blues CDs to review. They have a lot of great artists on their team so check ‘em out! One such great is seasoned blues veteran Tas Cru, who puts out another winner in Memphis Song. Starting off with “Heal My Soul”, this jam has a little Dire Straits-circa-1978 feel to it, but this guy is way more than a Sultan of Swing. Nice harp work accompanies Tas’ unique vocals. The title cut is a little slower, with a mystical eeriness reminiscent of something you would imagine hearing if you were broken down over by the side of Bloody 520 in the middle of a dark night with a full moon. “Fool For The Blues” is a great cut with rocking guitars as Tas tells how people think he is crazy for sticking with the genre, but he ain’t going anywhere! “Bad love, hard luck, tough times and bad bad news / That’s how it’s always been, they call it paying dues / Willie got it right, he comes to spread the news / He comes to testify, he’s a fool for the blues.” It’s like Tas is talking to me on that one! In “Give a Little Up” he laments about the inability of humans to compromise, and how if we’d all give a little up, we might get along much better. It’s a nice, groovy slow jam that exudes visions of a smoke-filled, dimly lit bar as the harp wails. Kinda like Fun-Time used to be but without the holes in the ceiling and the rain coming through. Another mellow rocker, “Daddy Didn’t Give You Much (But He Sure Gave You the Blues)” he wails about how he screwed up some girls head in a really bad way. He picks it up with “Have a Drink” with good keyboards and proposes a toast to everyone! A great jam to sing the next time you are at Straw Hat and want to keep that guy from fighting you.You know, that one over there who’s giving you the stink eye. “That Look” is a come-on jam where he’s telling a woman how fine she is, but he knows he is headed for trouble. Two card-related jams follow, “One Eyed Jack” and “Queen of Hearts”. In the former, he sings how he can’t win because the devil has stacked the deck. Funky grooves accompany this cut as well as more nice harp work. In the latter, not to be confused with Juice Newton, he slows it down again, singing for his woman that he lost and now wants back. In “Don’t Lie to That Woman” he tells the tale about how his woman will put up with anything except a lack of honesty. Sounds like a good deal to me! The next cut, “Feels So Good” (not to be confused with Chuck Mangione) he says he feels so good he wants to play the blues the whole day through, which sounds like a great day to me. He winds it up with “Can’t Get Over The Blues”, another solid hit with great guitars and harp. Tas’ latest release is sure to please even the toughest music critic, so go out and grab one of these before they are all gone like the Bernard’s Surf sign.

Hard-hitting blues rocker Anthony Gomes belts out another great CD with his latest: Peace, Love, & Loud Guitars. From the opening cut to the end, this CD rocks. Gomes’ guitar work is incredible as he rocks the frets off of the Flying V. He starts wout asking B.B. King to come down from heaven and bring back the King of the Blues. He then hits the raunchy side with “White Trash Princess”, the trailer park dream. His description of her is classic, as he says she was wearing a “husband beater” and wants him to rock her trailer. He slows it down claiming to have “Blues in the First Degree”, a song that would make Blues Boy Willie proud (RIP). “Nasty Good” has some more good lyrics, “She’s not head over heels / She’s heels over head”. This guy could actually stand toe-to-toe with the majority of today’s “rockers” and blow them off the stage.That’s one of the great things about the blues, there are so many styles to choose from. Some slow, some country, some rocking, some mellow, some hard. There is an unlimited variety, just like the variety of bars when doing the walk-of-pain down A1A in Cocoa Beach but without the subsequent headache.“The Whiskey Made Me Do It” is another good jam, blaming all of his actions on the booze, “Drinking triples, and seeing double / Acting single, now I’m in trouble”. Sounds like me after a night out with Carolina Billy. Hopefully he is out of Cocoa Beach Jail by the time this comes out. Anthony slows it down in “You Are Amazing” where he delivers a romantic love song to his true love. We should all be so lucky to love someone as much as Anthony expresses in this lovely ballad. In the title track (who remembah title tracks), he rocks out another barn-burner that could probably be a new rock anthem. This song is worth the price of admission alone. Excellent guitar work. In “Stealin’ From the Devil”, he sings a spooky song about blues legend Robert Johnson, where he says he is going down to hell to get Robert’s soul back. Back to the dirty side of town he goes next with “Your Mama Wants to Do Me (And Your Daddy Wants To Do Me In)” saying good girls go to heaven but bad girls go backstage. He slows it up a bit with “The Only Woman I’ve Ever Loved” as he laments a lost love, and pleads with the listener to not make the mistakes he did. Pretty funny considering he just sang about doing your momma and trailer love. In “Hard Road Easy” he rocks it out again, singing about life on the road and how you can’t stop him if you try.With the power in this CD, I believe him. He ends with “Take Me Back Home”, a slow ballad, showing his musical diversity once again proving hard or soft, this guy is the real deal.
