MAKE YOUR HOME Article by Staci Edwards Design

I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY THAT DUE TO COVID-19, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TAKING MORE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THEIR HEALTH THESE DAYS. ONE BIG WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH IS TO AVOID TOXINS, AND ONE PLACE WHERE TOXINS CAN BE LURKING IS IN OUR HOMES.

HERE ARE FIVE WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOME HEALTHIER TO HELP YOU LIVE A LONGER, HEALTHIER LIFE.

USE CLEANER PRODUCTS Everyday cleaning products, beauty products, and things like candles and air fresheners are filled with loads of toxins that are very bad for our health. Often, people get set in their ways and buy the same products over and over. I encourage you to spend a bit of time to do some research next time you need to purchase a product and slowly swap things out for cleaner, healthier options. A great resource that I used to learn about making healthier choices when buying products was ‘Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life’. It’s a quick and enjoyable read and available through Amazon.

CONSIDER LOW VOC PRODUCTS VOC stands for volatile organic compounds, which are solvents that are released into the air from products like paint and adhesives found in furniture and rugs. Having VOCs in your home can cause short-term side effects like headaches and brain fog, and although long term side effects vary, VOCs have been labelled as carcinogens. To help keep you and your home healthy, it’s best to look for products with low or zero VOCs, which are usually water based.

8


INVEST IN NATUR AL FIBRES Just like VOCs in paints and adhesives cause unwanted offgassing, so do synthetic fibres in fabrics and rugs. Have you ever purchased a large piece of furniture or a new area rug, and when you got it home and unwrapped it, your home smelled a little like rubber? That is off-gassing, and it’s not great. By investing in products made with natural fibres like cotton, linen, and wool, you’re on your way to creating a healthier and happier home.

LOOK FOR HEALTHY FOAM OPTIONS The main ingredient used to make foam is polyurethane, which is a by-product of petroleum (yes, the same product that we use to fuel our vehicles!). It’s scary to think that while we try to avoid breathing in the gas fumes as we pump our gas, we’re likely sleeping on a mattress that is omitting those same toxins. You can opt for healthier foam options in all of your furniture and mattresses, so do a little research and find what works well for you.

ADD PLANTS TO YOUR ROOM Houseplants not only look great in any room because they add a hint of colour and texture, but they also work to purify the air. Plants absorb harmful toxins from the air that are produced by things in our homes like synthetics and cleaning products. What makes plants even better is that they are scientifically proven to boost people’s moods, improve overall concentration, and reduce stress levels. Some of my favourite looking plants are the fiddle leaf fig, the ZZ plant, the snake plant, and the maidenhair fern. If you’re looking for a colourful burst, pick up some chrysanthemums as they are known for being great air purifiers. ◆

A SPRINGTIME

Stroll

By Jason Stacey | Photography by Peeter Poldre

WITH THE TREES, BUSHES AND FLOWERS IN BLOOM, springtime is always a great time to get outside to experience the intricate beauty of nature. Accentuated by the soft light of sunrise, THN Media Photographer, Peeter Poldre grabbed his camera and took an early morning walk around his yard to capture the splendour of the season. Using a telephoto lens, Peeter looked for back-lighting and/or a pleasing background to highlight his subjects.

THANK YOU PEETER FOR KEEPING US CONNECTED TO THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE WORLD AROUND US DURING THESE TRYING TIMES. 17

INGREDIENTS

en ck hi C SCALOPPINI WITH TOMATOES, MUSHROOMS AND SPINACH

THIS IS A PERFECT WEEKNIGHT MEAL and beautiful enough to entertain with. DIRECTIONS STEP ONE: Prepare a large flat surface with parchment paper, place the potato starch (or whatever you are using) on one side of the paper. Lay the chicken pieces on the rest of the parchment and season both sides with salt and pepper. Dip each seasoned piece of chicken in the potato starch and shake off the excess.

18

STEP T WO: Have a large oven safe serving dish near the stove. Heat a heavy duty pan over med high heat, add about 1-2 tbsp of olive oil, place 3-4 pieces of chicken in the pan, do not crowd. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, remove to the serving dish, you do not need to cook it all the way through, it will cook as it sits. Repeat with more oil and more chicken until all the chicken is browned. STEP THREE: Add more oil to the pan, add the mushrooms, a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté until shrunken, and browned, remove them from the pan and add them to the dish with the chicken. STEP FOUR: Add the garlic, cook until lightly browned, add the tomatoes, season with a pinch of salt and pepper,

SERVES 6

• 2 chicken breasts, cut into scaloppini, you will have about 6 pieces • 1/4 cup potato starch, cornstarch, arrowroot powder or any flour of your choice • Kosher salt for sprinkling on each piece of chicken plus more for each vegetable • Freshly ground black pepper to taste • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided • 6 button mushrooms, stems removed, sliced • 6 shitake mushrooms, stems removed, sliced • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved • 2-3 cups washed baby spinach • 1/4 cup white wine • 1 cup chicken stock, chicken soup or bone broth • 2 tbsp lemon juice

add the spinach, sauté until wilted, add this mixture to the dish with the chicken. STEP FIVE: Add the wine to the pan, let reduce for a minute, scraping up any brown bits at the bottom of the pan add the chicken stock, let cook for 3-5 minutes, it should boil, add the lemon juice. Pour this mixture over the chicken and arrange the vegetables around the chicken in a presentable way. Serve right away or refrigerate covered until overnight. Let come to room temp for at least one hour before reheating and then reheat in a 300400˚F oven (depending on what else is in the oven) until heated through, about 30 minutes. ◆
