CELEBRATE THE BEST OF THE SEASON If it seems like your grocery store’s apple section is more abundant than it has been in the past, you’d be correct. With new apple varieties coming onto the scene every few years, gone are the days of choosing between simply red or green. Instead, choosing the right apple is similar to selecting the perfect wine. Apples can range from tart to sugary sweet, so finding the right balance for your palate is key. Scent can also influence taste, especially when you have a balanced sweetness with an uplifting, fresh aroma. When it comes to apples, a satisfying texture is as important as taste. Consider an option like the Envy apple, which has been referred to as “the ultimate apple experience” for its consistently balanced, delightful sweetness coupled with a crisp, elegant crunch. They are an easy snack when eaten fresh out of hand and are perfect for pairing with cheese, charcuterie boards, chocolate and nut butters. Easy to spot with their crimson red skin over a golden background that practically glows, Envy apples are naturally descended from Braeburn and Royal Gala apple varieties, bred by farmers who use time-honored plant-breeding methods. Plus, the apples’ bright white flesh is naturally slow to brown when sliced, so they stay fresher longer.

Home for the Holidays Traveling to visit friends and loved ones will likely be limited this year, so make this holiday season a time for cherishing traditions in new, different ways. Consider these ways to make apples part of the celebration: • Break out the webcam and challenge your siblings to a crosscountry apple pie bake off. • Give a relish tray an upgrade with a sophisticated charcuterie board stacked with creamy gorgonzola cheese, salty caramel sauce, crunchy mixed nuts and crisp apple slices. Entertaining tip: Envy apples are a perfect addition to any holiday spread as their white flesh stays naturally whiter longer and resists the browning that sometimes shows with other apples. • Get transported from the comfort of your couch by watching one of Hallmark Channel’s all-new original holiday movies, munching on apples as your movie-time snack. • Share the scents of the holidays with neighbors by crafting pomanders, which are fresh apples studded with whole cloves. • Fill decorative bowls with festive Envy apples, enclose in cellophane and gift them to friends and family member. For more information, including recipes and entertaining tips, visit EnvyApple.com, Courtesy of Family Features.

Creating the Ultimate Charcuterie Board Stick to the basics this holiday season to create a perfect charcuterie board:

The board: Select a board big enough for your gathering but not too big as you want there to be overlap and crowding. The cheeses: Select three different cheeses that complement the other items. Brie is a solid soft cheese choice while blue fills the need for a stronger, more pungent cheese. Try an aged cheddar or smoky gouda to round out the trio. The meats: Something salty with a little fat, like prosciutto or speck, provides a flavorful addition to the board. The produce: Choose fruits that not only taste great, but are also beautiful to display such as Envy apple slices, which stay whiter longer, making them ideal for any entertaining occasion. Plus their balanced sweetness pairs well with any item on the board. The crackers: Variety is key with crackers, and like the

cheeses, three types is typically the magic formula. Think water crackers, multi-grain wafers and breadsticks.

The snacks: Sweet and salty are king when it comes to snacks, so a mix of chocolate and nuts works for many charcuterie boards.

NUTRITIONAL INSPIRATION FOR THE NEW YEAR A new year brings new opportunities for personal changes and improvement from taking steps forward in a career to bettering personal relationships and – perhaps most common – starting on a path toward better health. For many, the worthwhile challenge of enhancing physical health begins with the foods and beverages you eat and drink. Step one is to leave behind the habit of turning to unhealthy meals and instead focus on dishes that call for fresh fruits and veggies like this Quinoa Salad with Orange Cilantro Salad Dressing. Simply start with cooked quinoa and mix together with your preferred produce like orange slices, grapefruit and diced avocado. Add feta cheese, lime juice and diced red onion to bring the flavor to life and drizzle with the light, zesty dressing. Making nutritious choices goes beyond just your meals, however. Take your commitment to the next level with beverages that don’t cancel out your effort to eat healthy. This Spiced Citrus Ginger Mocktail combines a concentrate made of orange juice, orange peel, lime juice and lime peel with zero-sugar, zero-calorie ginger ale. These health-conscious recipes are made possible with the flavor enhancement of Zevia beverages, which are naturally sweetened with stevia and include no artificial ingredients, colors or preservatives. Ranging from sodas to organic teas, energy drinks, sparkling water and mixers for cocktails and mocktails, the zero-sugar beverages fit nearly any lifestyle including eating patterns like paleo, keto, intermittent fasting and gluten-free.

HOLIDAY SPIRITS TO SIP ON Toast the season with festive twists on favorite drinks

Despite a holiday season that’s practically guaranteed to feel different than any other, one constant will remain for many: enjoying the tastes of favorite foods and beverages while cozied up at home. Enhance the holiday spirit and complement the meal at your table with adult beverages that call for seasonal flavors to add to the festive vibe. Whether you prefer your drinks with a fruity twist and plenty of mix-ins or would rather opt for a simpler combination, the options are vast. Many traditional holiday drinks require a small handful of ingredients that blend, mix or

shake together to create a wintry flavor that’s worth the wait. Regardless of personal preferences, one ingredient you can rely on when creating an at-home concoction is a mixer like those from Zevia, which are naturally sweetened with stevia and include no artificial ingredients, colors or preservatives. These non-alcoholic, zero-sugar, zero-calorie mixers for cocktails (or mocktails) are available in three different flavors: Lemon Lime with Bitters, Tonic and Ginger Beer to provide a simple yet delicious complement to the ingredients of your choosing.

TRADING IN MY RESOLUTIONS FOR RESTORATIVE REFLECTION Written by Libby Pecheur

26 T H E E V O LV E M A G D E C E M B E R 2 0 2 0

T H E E V O LV E M A G . C O M


A

t a time of year when we are typically swept up in the holiday bustle, tightening up the year’s loose ends, and musing on new beginnings, perhaps in the form of resolutions or lofty aspirations, we are now grappling with how to preserve traditions, maintain social closeness, and avoid totally losing it on our ten-month quarantine crew. As we navigate this uncharted holiday season and attempt to find closure with 2020, how can we carve out our corner of “peace on earth” and peace within? While I am feeling hopeful and encouraged about the start of a new year, I have had to consistently reorient my anxious thinking toward a practice of restorative reflection. Reflecting to restore my mind, body, and spirit to a condition of hopeful anticipation. To a condition of acceptance and growth. Reflecting to learn from what this past year has stirred in me, to understand who I’ve been in 2020, and to create intention for myself in 2021. The dictionary definition of reflection is “serious thought or consideration.” The definition for restorative? “Having the ability to restore health, strength, or a feeling of well-being.” I believe that through giving serious, honest consideration to the challenges we have endured in 2020, whether we have been the inflictors or the recipients of pain and suffering, we can engage in a learning process that takes us to a state of restored wellbeing and hope. The practice of reflection as a method for learning and restoration is one used within drug and alcohol recovery programs, academia and classrooms. Across its uses, the intention is to understand events past for the purpose of better understanding ourselves, and carrying honest self-awareness with us for future growth and benefit. As tempting as it can feel to look away from regrettable or painful circumstances, we cannot learn from what we cannot face.

Photos by Jonathan Borba

In a distilled article on researcher Caroline Humphrey’s work on reflective practice in relation to experiential learning, the author tells us that “reflection may feel puzzling and confusing because it requires us to look at things in creative and interdisciplinary ways—it exposes a diversity of ways of knowing and understanding, and it is intellectually difficult.”

It is intellectually difficult. Never had I thought of personal reflection in this way, having always glorified it as a calming, meditation-like practice. But in considering the purpose of honest reflections on our past selves (who are still very much part of our current and future selves, by the way), it should feel uncomfortable and challenging. Otherwise, we are telling ourselves rosy half-truths, or flat out non-truths, never giving ourselves the gift of growth and restorative learning. There have been several moments over this past year when I have not lived out of my personal values, particularly in my relationships. In debating all of the difficult and controversial issues 2020 has served up on a platter, I have been reactive, self-righteous, ungracious, and judgmental. In the immediate aftermath of each argument, sure, I would give some thought to my behavior in a half-concerted effort to take ownership of how I could have behaved differently. But more than anything, I would stew and recount and rework my arguments in preparation to be right the next time around. What I continue to remind myself is that even if we are right, if we were wronged, the only restorative learning we have accountability for is our own. One healthy medium that brings tangible expression to our time of reflection is journaling, or even simply considering guided questions to help us dig deeper into our experiences. Below are some questions that I’ve found helpful for me this past year: • Am I holding onto anything that I need to let go of? • What do I say I value, but have a hard time showing I value? • What do I want others to do for me that I have not so easily done for others? • What kind of communicator do I wish to be perceived as? • When did I miss an opportunity to listen and learn? • Were there opportunities to be more generous, gracious, and empathetic? These are just a handful of prompts that have helped me to home in on the precise moments of 2020 when I relinquished control over myself to external stressors and triggers. Rather than feeling guilt and shame in experiencing this perfectly human behavior, I am finding considerable encouragement and hope in the opportunity to reflect, learn, and move into 2021 feeling more restored in my mental and physical health, sense of self-awareness, and personal values. Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung said, “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people.” And, if I may add to that, it’s in understanding how to shine a light on our own darkness that we will also brighten our light in the darkness around us. This is the social power of restorative reflection I wish for us now and for every New Year to come.

HOW TO BE A POSITIVE INFLUENCER As the world struggles with fear, Karen McGregor says we need positive influencers more than ever

28 T H E E V O LV E M A G D E C E M B E R 2 0 2 0

T H E E V O LV E M A G . C O M


Scary times are upon us. We’re staying indoors, watching the news 24/7, and we’re afraid. Everyone around us is afraid. That’s because fear is super-contagious. But Karen McGregor says we don’t have to allow pandemic-driven fear and anxiety to infect our lives. We can learn to rise above it. And when we do, there’s an unexpected side effect: We become positive influencers on everyone around us.

Here are seven habits to work on right now to overcome fear, tap into your “love-power” (McGregor’s word for the primal power we all possess), and influence others in a positive way:

“Now is the perfect time to dissolve fear-based beliefs and be a powerful example to others,” says Karen McGregor, author of Wall Street Journal bestseller The Tao of Influence: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders and Entrepreneurs (Mango, September 2020, ISBN: 978-164250-275-6, $24.95) and an international keynote and TEDx speaker. “In times of uncertainty, it’s the real influencers who step in and make a big difference to those who are struggling with the unknown.”

you’re feeling right now is grief. You are grieving the loss of your life before COVID-19, and you are also grieving collectively with the rest of the world. “Pain can be released through the portal of the heart,” says McGregor. “When you focus on your heart, a desire to release the pain of the past may arise. Even better, your heart knows how to do that without your mind interrupting.”

Overcoming fear requires you to do some intense work on yourself. But (to state the obvious) right now you have some time. Why not put it to good use? Instead of worrying and handwringing, develop some good spiritual habits to help you vanquish fear. They’ll pay off now when you need it most, but will also serve you (and others) once “normalcy” returns. McGregor’s book lays out a path— rooted in the ancient wisdom of the 4,000-year-old Tao Te Ching—for identifying and breaking the “power patterns” that undermine your influence, create dysfunctional relationships, and otherwise squelch your potential.

Learn to grieve your losses and release your pain. A lot of what

Here’s a simple exercise from The Tao of Influence: Focus on the heart and allow the feelings of your past to present themselves. Just allow the process to unfold. Allow your body to feel and release without letting your mind get hooked into the emotion, feeding the ego needs and magnifying your power patterns. When you put your attention on your heart, you may notice that it feels warm or even hot. That is a sign you are releasing stored emotional pain.

Start noticing your fear-based wording. And then cut it out.

Words are powerful: They can lift our spirits, or they can drag us down in an instant—and others with us. Notice the words you say and find better words to use in their place. Instead of saying, “I’m tired,” say, “I’m going to have a nap, and when I wake up, I’ll feel refreshed, energized, and ready to work or play.”

“In the time of coronavirus, the words you speak and even those you think matter greatly,” says McGregor. “Complaining phrases such as, ‘If only…’ and ‘Remember when…?’ are likely to come up frequently. Challenge yourself to go seven days without uttering one complaint. After managing that, go two more days without engaging in complaining thoughts.”

Find a new way to pray. (Hint: Begging and pleading isn’t real prayer.) It’s understandable that your

prayers may be colored by desperation right now. But asking, bargaining, and engaging in transactions lead to a onesided relationship with the Divine. To better understand the power of prayer, McGregor journeyed to the Poor Clares Monastery in Duncan, British Columbia. The nuns there live a solitary life of contemplative prayer. They taught her that prayer isn’t what most of us think it is.

“The nuns said that prayer is many things,” she says. “It can be a meditative walk in nature, a feeling of deep gratitude or joy from being in the presence of a loved one, or simply saying a phrase like ‘thank you.’ It can be saying one of many names for God. All these ways to pray have one thing in common: to illuminate a relationship with the Divine.”

Start meditating (finally). Why should we meditate? Because it helps us detach from our preferences—which trigger our need to be “right” or “in control” and lead to suffering—and practice being in the present. (McGregor calls it “dropping into the holy moment of now.”) Just set aside 15-20 minutes to sit quietly and focus on your breath. If your mind wanders, that’s okay: The point is not to judge the thoughts that stream endlessly into your consciousness but to allow them to ebb and flow without getting emotionally hooked. “Successful meditation occurs when there is no war between your head and your heart,” says McGregor. “This state is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. If you’ve always ‘meant’ to try meditating but haven’t yet done so, now is the perfect day to start.”

Clean and declutter to create “environmental stillness.” A messy space at

home contributes to a disorganized and chaotic mind. But if we can take small steps toward establishing stillness on the outside of us, we can experience more internal peace, wellness, and harmony within. If you haven’t already done so, take advantage of the extra time you have at home to clean and organize your spaces to promote balance and stillness.

Observe each room and notice what creates unsettling thoughts. Does your office lack a system for filing bills or random pieces of information? Do your bedroom clothes and accessories not have a “home”? Take inventory, commit to doing something about it, and set a date for when it will be done. The entire house can be completed in one month—or even much sooner.

When you feel angry or annoyed, focus on gratitude. Tempers and tensions flare in

stressful times and in tight quarters. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself getting irritated with your family, with the peanut gallery comments on your social media feeds, with the endless news cycle, or anything else. When this happens, turn your focus on what all you are grateful for. This can help to supplant old power patterns you’ve relied on for years. If you are angry with someone or arguing endlessly, remove yourself and ask, What is the gift in this moment? Without blaming or shaming anyone, feel into your heart and ask, What am I grateful for? Try to reframe challenging circumstances as opportunities and practice appreciating them. This is a form of gratitude: to be able to see the good that is present in every situation.

Sing and dance regularly. (YES, you read that right!)

In his book The Mastery of Love, Don Miguel Ruiz says this is a natural expression of our love-power—which is why little children sing and dance. They haven’t yet developed the filters and fear that they’ll be judged. You can dance and sing in the privacy of your room or as you clean your house. If you want to take it to the next level, suggests McGregor, consider signing up for a dance class—many classes are offering online streaming while dance studios are closed due to social distancing requirements. “If you allow it, your fear will go viral,” concludes McGregor. “Now more than ever, we all need to choose love over fear, power over powerlessness, and hope over despair. This is your chance to, in the words of Gandhi, be the change you want to see in the world. And you must. When you say no to fear, doing this becomes possible like never before.”

TIPS FOR WINTER TRAVELERS

ecause of the pandemic, fewer Americans are taking to the skies, but a significant number likely plan to hit the roads to visit friends and family during the winter months. Whether a few towns over or a couple states away, many drivers will travel interstates, which are major logistics corridors often dominated by commercial trucks. According to the United States Census Bureau, there are approximately 3.5 million people working as truck drivers in the U.S. From keeping grocery store shelves stocked to delivering those next-day packages, professional truck drivers impact lives with the freight they move and serve an important role in keeping the economy running. Professional truck drivers are also experts when it comes to planning travel. From mapping out a route to maintaining their vehicles and even practicing a healthy diet, many truck drivers are road trip experts. Caron Comas is a professional truck driver for Variant, a subsidiary of U.S. Xpress, one of the nation’s largest trucking companies. Highly trained, she’s driven trucks for 17 years and her expert insight can aid the average automobile driver planning to hit the roads this winter. “It’s important that the average driver give trucks plenty of space on the road,” Comas said. “People can forget we’re generally handling 75 feet of tractor and trailer, which can weigh 80,000 pounds. We can’t stop on a dime like automobiles,

so increase distance when merging in front of trucks and avoid slamming on your brakes.” Comas suggests following these tips on the road and before you travel: Don’t follow trucks too closely. If you can’t see a tractor trailer’s mirrors, the driver can’t see you. Schedule vehicle maintenance before your trip. Have your oil changed and ask the experts to check your tire pressure and other important fluids to help assure you’re driving safely and efficiently. Carefully plan your route. If driving through big cities, consider fluctuations in rush hour traffic. For more remote locations where there may not be regular food or gas, plan for when you’ll need to stop along the route. Stay hydrated and nourished. Before setting out, eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of water. For the drive, pack healthy, nonperishable snacks like granola, fruit or nuts along with bottled water. For longer trips with kids, consider a small cooler for sandwiches, string cheese or yogurt. Be overly prepared. Keep a few blankets, a flashlight, a first-aid kit and an extra pair of shoes in your car. If you experience car trouble, make sure you can stay warm until help arrives. Keep in mind the global pandemic. Check each state’s quarantine requirements that you’ll be traveling to or through, wear a mask when in public and follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines when traveling.

For Collectors Château Lafite Rothschild Magnum Set ($5,000)

The 2018 vintage marks 150 years since Baron James de Rothschild acquired the legendary Bordeaux estate—and the wine is poised to be one of the finest in the château’s history. The 2018 season was one of the smoothest in recent years, and both grapes—Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon—reached perfect maturity, giving the team the chance to take its time selecting from each plot during harvest. To commemorate the anniversary, Lafite is creating a special label, releasing 300 limited edition gift cases containing a numbered magnum of the 2018 vintage (half of which are in French, and the other 150 in English) and Saskia de Rothschild’s new book, “The Almanac,” which traces the estate’s past vintages through a timeline pieced together with a historian. Only 30 available in the U.S; sold at K&L, Zachy’s, wine.com and Hart Davis Hart.

For Rosé Lovers Gérard Bertrand Clos du Temple 2018 and 2019 ($190) Rosé makes a wonderful pairing during the holidays, especially with Thanksgiving and Christmas fare, and summer wasn’t as festive as usual, why not keep the rosé flowing just a bit longer? The 2019 vintage of Clos du Temple won the 2020 Best Rosé of the World award at the Global Rosé Masters of Drinks Business. From the historic terroir of Cabrières in Languedoc, the birthplace of rosé wines, Clos du Temple was designed for long aging (a decade or more), and to be poured for special celebrations. The elegant bottle begins with a square base representing the earthly dimension, and transitions to cylindrical form representing the cosmic dimension, in accordance with the principles of biodynamics with proportions inspired by the golden ratio.

CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD RELEASES 2018 VINTAGE In Pauillac, the 2018 season started as a struggle: with its surprises, this anniversary vintage was a capricious child. The winter was one of the coldest since 2010; rain and violent showers continued incessantly through spring, and mildew attacked hard from May to July. But then, the weather turned around: with hot days, cool nights, and the right sprinkling of rain—the vines of Château Lafite developed perfectly into one of the most trouble-free harvest in recent years. Unlike with typical vintages, the winemaking team was able to take their time and slowly choose when to pick each plot as grapes reached their optimal ripeness. This year’s surprise? The Merlots: very opulent and fruity that almost rivalled the Cabernets in terms of expression. But at the time of blending, a lot of debate came into play about their future and, in the end, the Cabernet Sauvignons won the match and only a few of the Merlot lots made it into the Grand Vin. An outstanding vintage such as this owes nearly all to its terroir. 2018 was typically a year where alcoholic degrees rose in the region but the clayey, gravel soil of the Lafite plateau showed their capacity to regulate, providing balanced ripening conditions. In the end, the final blend didn’t exceed 13,3° and was determined, as usual, by tasting wines produced on each plot before an 18-month ageing period in French oak barrels (crafted at La Tonnellerie des Domaines, Lafite’s own cooperage in Pauillac).

As a way to fête the 150th anniversary of the Rothschild family’s acquisition of Lafite, chairwoman Saskia de Rothschild imagined a symbol playing on Lafite’s historic and centenary label, which has two women in the foreground looking into the distance. The hot air balloon chosen to disrupt the label was sketched by Black Adder, a creative duo of illustrators. “We thought it would be a good idea to imagine something floating in the sky that the women could be gazing at,” Saskia says. “In 1868, hot air balloons were the absolute symbols of modernity and adventure. In 2018, we still see them fly but they have become the symbol of slowing down, of taking the time to move more steadily. With no rush. Just what we have been doing at Lafite for 150 years: steadily standing the test of time as we head towards the future.” The initials CL, 150 in roman numerals, were also placed in red on the shoulder of the bottle. At the beginning of next year, Lafite will release 300 limited edition cases containing a magnum of the 2018 vintage and the book, “The Almanac,” published in December which looks back at 150 vintages of Lafite, and presents each one with climatic and historic notes and archival material from each specific year. “We built this book to tell the story of Lafite since the Rothschild family has owned it, but also to share more stories about the life of a vintage,” the chairwoman says. “We hope readers will come out of reading it with a better understanding of how a wine grows, from the soil to the vine to the bottle.”
