big part of what makes Edina special is the spirit of volunteerism among a vast array of community members. But, when residents are unsure where to direct their charitable efforts, or maybe they’re spearheading an effort and seek additional support, the Edina Community Foundation is uniquely situated as an important center of influence and resource. I first wrote about the Edina Community Foundation in Edina Magazine in 2016 when it was selected as an editor’s pick for Best Community Organization in our annual Best of Edina issue. I shared information about its endowment program, independent grant making, supported beneficiary groups and its tireless support of public art in Edina. Several subsequent issues of Edina Magazine have spotlighted the foundation’s Connecting with Follow us ! Kids honorees and various other local endeavFind more stories & photos online. ors. I continue to believe the work of the Edina Plus, tag us in your Edina pics! Community Foundation is extremely special and edinamag.com that it’s positively unique among similar organiEdina Magazine @edinamag zations in the Twin Cities. So, when executive director Dick Crockett suggested a regular column in Edina Magazine to showcase citizens of Edina recognized by the foundation as outstanding contributors to the local community, I readily agreed. This month marks the first such installment. Turn to our Noteworthy section and read a bit about local sculptor Nick Legeros, the artist behind much of Edina’s incredible public art. Watch for more citizen profiles in future issues of Edina Magazine. Next up, get ready to get fit … however that suits your personal lifestyle. We’ve got stories in this issue that educate readers on where to find super foods on local restaurant menus and how to get fit with in-person or virtual fitness instructors. Once you’ve worked out, settle in and cozy up with our article about how to hygge. That’s right, it’s winter in Minnesota and we know just how to help you enjoy every fresh breath and warm sip.

I Got a Rowing Machine for Christmas Will I get fit or will it just sit?

ISTOCK.COM/SKYNESHER

L

eading up to 2021, I knew I needed to move more. I’m good at getting out for walks and a few sets of tennis in the summer months. In winter, my go-to is a few miles on a treadmill while watching television. I know that’s not enough for overall fitness, but I’m not one for lifting weights (even though I should) or exerting myself for very long (maybe I don’t need to?) So, when I heard a podcaster ask actor Hugh Jackman, who achieved an impressive physical metamorphosis at age 44 for a superhero movie role, “What do you think is the single best piece of at-home exercise equipment?” I tuned in … and he thinks a rowing machine provides the best overall body workout in the least amount

of time. Okay. I’m game. I did some research and decided to purchase a magnetic style rowing machine. It’s compact and quiet and was relatively inexpensive. Rowing workouts engage a large proportion of muscles while being easy on the joints. The “best” part is, I’m told I need not row for long periods of time to get results. I admit that I’m still not as committed to daily exercise as I should be, so I talked to a few local experts for more specific advice. Check out what they had to say in our feature story on page 22. Here’s to a renewed spirit of wellness in 2021. I’m cheering you on, Edina, from the seat of my rowing machine (or maybe from the couch, no judgement). —Angela Johnson

BRIGHT PRECIOUS THING

A memoir about friendship and discovery. For over 20 years, Gail Caldwell was the chief book critic at The Boston Globe. In 2001, she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished criticism. She has written three wellreceived memoirs, one of them, Let’s Take the Long Way Home, was a bestseller. Her latest, Bright Precious Thing, introduces readers to a new neighbor. With her mother by her side, 5-year-old Tyler rings Caldwell’s doorbell, asking if she can pet the writer’s dog, Tula. Child, dog and woman become friends. The book is framed in the questions Tyler asks the writer about her life: Why didn’t Gail marry? Was she ever in love? Is she an immigrant? Her answers are interwoven with reflections on feminism, alcoholism and the life of the single woman. Dogs, rowing, broken a parking lot after an AA meeting that are in every Caldwell memoir. They are here as well, but fresh, like the New Year.

Nick Legeros is an Edina sculptor whose work sets a high standard for public art in our community. He has created several bronze sculptures acquired by the Edina Community Foundation for Centennial Lakes Park—Reflecting on Friendship, Dreaming of Flight and The Glamorous Days of Flight. The latter two are a tribute to the women and

studio and has created over 500 sculptures. His larger works are on display in hospitals, churches, universities, parks and libraries in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The sculptures require being cast through an age-old and labor-intensive process known as “lost-wax” casting and he has studied with masters in the field and served as a teacher to younger artists such as Heidi Hoy, whose Spaulding sculpture is on display at 50th and France. His life and work are the subject of a book, Sculpting a Life: The Art of Nick Legeros, recently published by the Edina Community Foundation.

EVENING SETTLES OVER THE TUNDRA

early in January when Minnesotans experience only eight hours of daylight, half of what we get to enjoy in the summer months. We’ve been daily gaining precious minutes of sunshine since December, but these darker, colder mid-winter weeks set the perfect stage for living a more hyggelig (hygge-like) life. Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) is a Danish lifestyle concept that became an international movement a few years ago. Its Scandinavian origins and our northern climate make the hygge model especially appealing to Minnesotans. We’re on board. Here’s how you can be too. According to Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and author of The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience that promote intimacy and coziness. The basic elements integral to creating a hyggelig space include things like candlelight; a comfortable corner or nook to cozy up; relaxed, casual clothing; blankets, pillows along with vintage style décor; steamy and delectable comfort foods and warm sips of tea, coffee or mulled wine; books; nature; and most importantly, togetherness.

LIGHTING:

Candles are central to much of hygge because their soft glow instantly create a sense of intimacy and calm. Electric lights can emit a similar effect if chosen specifically to provide lower temperature pools of light rather than a harsh overhead glare. Scandinavian lamp designs by Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobson and Verner Panton are particularly popular with

hygge enthusiasts. Check Design Within Reach in Edina or IKEA for similar styles. If eyestrain is an issue and you occasionally need brighter light, consider installing dimmer switches so you can lower your lights for those special hygge moments. SNUGGLING:

Fireplaces are another popular hygge element. Minnesotans already know how wonderful a warm fire can be after a day on the slopes or snowshoeing through the woods. A Minnesota touch could extend to an outdoor firepit or fireplace, a steaming hot tub or strategically placed patio heaters for those brave souls who enjoy congregating outdoors all year round. For us indoor types, be sure you stock your gathering spaces with plenty of lap blankets, soft pillows and interesting

and you’re set. Because you cannot hygge when you’re cold. EATING:

CLOTHING:

Casual is key to the hyggelig life, something many work-from-home folks have lately become accustomed to. But that doesn’t mean you need sacrifice style. Just keep it minimalist with an emphasis on layers. According to Wiking, about a dozen years ago, a sweater worn by a Danish television show character became wildly popular among hygge lovers. You may not be able to get your hands on an authentic “Sarah Lund” sweater these days, but it’s super simple to discover similar styles in and around Edina. Add in a variety of cardigans, scarves, wraps and warm socks

Minnesotans are no strangers to the concept of comfort food. Cooking hygge meals is also about slow … taking your time to create a dish or a simmering pot and enjoying the process. Consider the creation of a hygge meal as a type of mindfulness that puts you into the present moment instead of thinking too far ahead. Turn off the TV, ignore social media alerts on your smartphone, light some candles, put on some soothing music, light a fire in the fireplace, pour a glass of wine or make a cup of tea and just savor the process of creating a nourishing meal for your family, your friends or just for your own enjoyment. Happy Hygge!

Families are welcome to request a personal tour or register for the school anytime during the academic year.

ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN

As a family-and-locally-owned organization since 1976, Especially for Children (EFC) is committed to building strong community relationships with parents, staff and children. EFC is home to eight locations (Edina locations house only kindergarten). Interested families can take virtual tours and call for information; however, face-to-face tours are available upon request. In order to limit interactions with students and staff at the facility, families are encouraged to observe from hallways. Requesting information and registration is open year-round.

KINDERBERRY HILL

Accentuating each child’s unique strengths from as young as 6 months old, Kinderberry Hill focuses on providing kids with the necessary resources to explore the world around them. Inviting teachers to learn alongside students, the curriculum encourages discovery, curiosity and confidence in knowledge across their eight locations. Families can request information, tour and register anytime.

The Power of Choice Edina native co-writes book about a U.S. veteran and Paralympic athlete.

JUST LIKE MOST OF 2020, the launch of U.S. veter-

an and Paralympian Melissa Stockwell’s book wasn’t to plan. Debuting last July in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, which was postponed due to COVID-19, The Power of Choice: From Wounded Warrior to World Champion is an ode to living life to the fullest despite the circumstances at hand. The theme of the book derives from its title. “The hope is that [readers] look at their own life and all obstacles that come with it,” Stockwell says. “Where it is going, where they want it to be and the steps to take to make it happen.” The book explores Stockwell’s journey through childhood as an athlete, her service in the U.S. military, her divorce, founding a successful nonprofit (Dare2Tri, an organization enhancing the lives of individuals with physical disabilities and visual impairments through swimming, biking and running) launching a career in prosthetics, finding new love and having two children. Devoting her childhood to gymnastics, Stockwell later developed a desire to serve her country. She enrolled in the ROTC at the University of Colorado and when she graduated, was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army in the transportation corps. Just weeks after her deployment to Iraq in 2004, Stockwell lost her left leg in a routine patrol, making her the first female soldier to lose a limb in active combat. During her long recovery at Walter Reed Medical Center, Stockwell says she had the pivotal choice of accepting her loss or wallowing in self-pity.

In 2008, Stockwell became the first Iraq War veteran to join a U.S. Paralympic team where she competed in three swimming events. However, she did not make it to finals. Continuing her journey toward success, she went on to win three Paratriathlon World Championship titles and claimed bronze in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, Brazil. With a desire to share her triumphant journey, Stockholm reached out to longtime friend and co-writer Stuart Lieberman of Edina. The two met in Colorado Springs, where Stockwell was training and Lieberman was interning with the media department for the Olympic and Paralympic committee in the summer of 2008. Working together to capture her experiences, Lieberman wrote from her point of view and Stockwell edited it to enhance her voice and improve the integrity of the story. After working with Stockwell, Lieberman says he has become a more positive person. “I think the most rewarding thing that I gained from this is perspective,” he says. “I hope the readers can too take some time to reflect and see what their perspective is on their own lives. If this book can inspire one person’s life, then it is a victory.” The Power of Choice is available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.

Experts weigh in on in-person, virtual and at-home exercise options.

RECOMMIT TO

Written by Angela Johnson

stablishing or renewing fitness goals is characteristic of our collective optimism when entering a new year. Clean slates and fresh starts are often exactly what’s needed to inspire movement toward improved health and wellness. But, unlike past years, many may be wondering how exactly to go about achieving fitness goals while still navigating our “new normal.” So, we interviewed local experts about innovative ways you can get plugged in and fired up about getting fit. It’s been nearly a year since the novel coronavirus caused local gyms to temporarily shutter. During the early months of 2020, when Minnesotans were under a shelter in place order, local YMCAs pivoted toward offering childcare for essential workers, becoming the largest childcare provider in the state. But, YMCA staffers never stopped providing wellness information and fitness initiatives for the broader community. Virtual fitness has been, and continues to be, available through live and ondemand programming like Y-At-Home, YMCA 360, YouTube and Facebook Live. The YMCA 360 app includes hundreds of workouts, dance classes, boxing instruction and yoga. Families can participate together, and distance learning students can even obtain physical education credit. The Y’s Facebook Live programming is saved on its Facebook page where viewers can find hundreds of free fitness options and lots of virtual support. Before re-opening last summer, Orangetheory in Edina installed an electrostatic air cleaning system that neutralizes over 99 percent of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen. Members were screened before entering the studio. Once inside, members have the added assurance of the ionization air filtration and between each class there is 15

minutes of cleaning and disinfecting of equipment. Edina Orangetheory owner and operator Mike Calawerts says, “When you first walk in, it might seem a bit like a hospital, but we try to turn the party on once you’re in your spot,” referring to exercise equipment stations placed a minimum of seven feet apart and following all state health protocols for capacity. Orangetheory’s main cardio elements include treadmills and rowing machines. They also have TRX trainers and full free weight stations for each participant. “All [workouts] are designed and tested to deliver results,” says Calawerts. The atmosphere is also “unique in that a class can have a dad whose last kid just went to college and who hasn’t had much time for himself and also include weekend marathoners. Ability and age are varied in every class. The minimum age for participants at Orangetheory is 14 and I’ve had members up to age 80. We even had a mom and daughter spend time together working out. We’re seeing more teens than before (likely due to distance learning) and it’s nice to see moms and dads not leave the kids at home,” but to pursue fitness as a family. For those who prefer an Orangetheory experience at home, the company’s corporate offices have created fitness at home workouts for users of its smartphone app. Calawerts says the app comes with a built in heartrate monitor to track your minutes in the “orange zone” while working out at home. Senior director of communications and marketing Joan Schimml says the Y’s virtual offerings are not just for exercise but also include resources for things like meditation and overall well-being. “People can even access our YouTube videos for cooking demonstrations from a teaching kitchen and learn things like

how to make a healthy smoothie,” says Schimml. Schimml says, “People have been making [fitness related] decisions based on safety, but we want to ensure that people also focus on finding time to take care of themselves.” Thus, the many virtual options will remain a prominent resource so people can still do all the things they’ve always enjoyed at home if that’s more comfortable. Schimml says they were unsure what members over age 60 might do once gyms reopened but they have been coming. A concentrated effort on its Foreverwell population (dedicated to members ages 55+) has included daily Zoom groups and classes for support, and provides social, education and movement opportunities. “What people are asking for now is social and emotional support,” says Schimml noting the importance of mental health and well-being. The Y’s efforts in that regard has included 137,000 wellness checks for senior Foreverwell members, connecting some to local resources in an age when navigating so many things online can be challenging. Edina Orangetheory Fitness co-owner Wendy Walker also emphasizes the importance of working out to enhance the immune system, noting that top health officials encourage regular exercise to lower risk of illness and reduce overall inflammation. The British Journal of Sports Medicine found that those who did aerobic exercise five or more days per week had a lower number of upper respiratory tract infections (like the common cold) over a 12-week period. Fitness should be a part of everybody’s everyday life and Schimml notes that financial assistance is available for much of the YMCA’s offerings so that even when budgets are tight, everyone has access to fitness and mental health resources.

Shifting part of your fitness budget toward more at home workouts in the new year? We asked Orangetheory owner/ operator Mike Calawerts and the YMCA’s senior director of health and well-being Jennifer Menk to provide their expertise on specific types of popular exercise equipment.

These provide a great total body workout if you add some load resistance. You can build core strength and it’s low impact. The trick for the average person is endurance. [Rowing] is difficult for longer than 10-15 minute bursts. It can also get boring and repetitive. That said, [rowing] can provide an opportunity to engage mentally if you can envision being out on a lake and be inspired to be in the moment. It’s important to note that the practice of mindfulness is not just for yoga. The number one determiner of which piece of exercise equipment to purchase should be which will you use more? User behaviors show time and again, that compliance is lower at home. That said, rowing, when a correct form is used, 75-85 percent of musculature is engaged and rowing ranks in the top three for total calorie burn right behind cross country skiing and swimming. But not everyone likes it. Choosing what you like is important. And those who don’t want to do high amounts of cardio may gravitate to a rower because results require less time commitment. Just remember, on a treadmill, you kind of already know how to walk, jog or run. On a rower, you may want to pay for a Zoom coach to teach you how to row correctly.


At home exercise ideas: • Walks are always a good idea. • Get outside if you can. • Never underestimate the value of stretching and yoga.

Practice functional fitness:

These are interesting because when you add loaded resistance, [like how it’s done in the Y’s group cycle classes] you can develop a muscular workout with a heavier load. But compliance at home to add that load is less likely without encouragement from an instructor you really like and who meets your style. If you enjoy the experience, you’re more likely to stick with it. Plenty of people have sold their Peloton because they don’t use it regularly. Also, cycling doesn’t help with flexibility, so an added virtual stretching course would be ideal. These offer consumers a big list of things that they want and can do at their leisure at any time and by picking their coach. But do you see yourself biking consistently 3-5 times a week throughout the year? This may be a great option in colder months but is it sustainable? Plenty of these and other fitness equipment could end up for sale in the aftermarket once all COVID restrictions are lifted. So, choose wisely.

These are generally used for cardiovascular health. A heavy incline or speed circuits could provide additional benefits, but [treadmills] do not do much for strength and flexibility. Maybe if you incorporated a virtual stretch or yoga flow class afterward, you’d get a more well-rounded workout regimen. It’s important to determine your heartrate zone and work off that to determine maximum fat burning … a general rule of thumb is 180 minutes of moderate activity each week with 75-90 minutes of high intensity training sprinkled in. If you’re able to get yourself into anaerobic states, you will burn more calories post workout. That’s why tracking is important. But just to be healthy, 20 minutes per day is recommended. And try to choose quality equipment. Lower priced treadmills can be tough on your body. Better technology, like what you find in health clubs, are typically less impactful than standard at-home equipment.

Menk likes this home workout equipment option best since it’s done while standing. She says, “We sit too much. And biking has us leaning over much like we do in the car or at our desks. This is a good option for improving posture and can be challenging but is still easy on the joints and it also provides some variety.”

• Go from standing to sitting often or go from sitting on the floor to standing for more of a challenge. • Look as far as you can over both shoulders. • Take off your shoes to wiggle and stretch your toes.

Tips for staying motivated to exercise at home: • Lay out your workout clothes the night before. • Have a dedicated space to workout. • Essential oils, candles or music can help get you in the mood.

Once restrictions lift, how to venture back into the gym: Go and check it out without necessarily taking a class or working out. Have your gym bag ready, but there’s no need to commit. First, see if you feel comfortable in the space. Is there clear safety related signage? Is the equipment adequately spaced? Can the staff answer your questions and help you feel at ease? Once you commit, don’t talk yourself out of it. It’s 2021 and everything is going to be better, including your commitment to yourself and your health.

Essential Info ABOUT ESSENTIAL OILS

Do these wildly popular remedies really work? Humans in most every culture have long sought the potential benefits of medicinal plants. In contemporary society, essential oils have gained traction as a go-to remedy for conditions like headache and insomnia, and we wanted to know more. So, we asked Lynn A. Gershan, MD, CM, medical director for integrative health and well-being at the M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital for some insight.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils are a concentrated liquid extracted from plants and contain volatile chemical compounds, volatile meaning they evaporate easily in normal temperatures. Unlike “essential” vitamins and nutrients necessary for health, the word “essential” in this case means the essence of the plant.

DO ALL PLANTS PRODUCE ESSENTIAL OILS?

No. Over 3,000 plant species produce essential oils of any type, but only about 300 of these are available commercially, with 125-150 used commonly in aromatherapy. Gershan notes there is a difference between herbalism and medical aromatherapy which uses a very

concentrated part of the plant, meaning less is more. “We should respect the plant and use caution regarding sourcing of this valuable resource and their effects,” Gershan says.

WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY?

Aromatherapy means different things to different people. For example, the perfume industry uses aesthetic aromatherapy. In marketing, someone might want to determine which scent inside a store would encourage purchases. Think of how realtors might suggest fresh baked cookies or bread as an inviting scent inside a house for sale. This is loosely called psycho aromatherapy. At the Center for Spirituality and Healing, Gershan and her staff practice medical aromatherapy using essential oils to achieve a specific clinical effect.

WHAT CONDITIONS ARE ESSENTIAL OILS GOOD FOR?

Essential oils can be good remedies for things like nausea, anxiety, headache and insomnia. Gershan says, “What we do is try to pair [holistic remedies] with some of the medical components of someone’s treatment plan. That’s why it’s called integrative medicine. We wouldn’t suggest peppermint oil would completely take away a headache, but it may synergize or work in combination with a patient’s overall medical treatment.”

HOW CAN ESSENTIAL OILS BE SAFELY USED? “There haven’t been a whole lot of studies,”

Citrus oils

Citrus oils have similar properties that are effective in energizing or alerting. Another good use might be before taking an exam. Those with ADD and ADHD have also found citrus oils helpful either by diffusion or inhalation.

says Gershan. “In medicine, we look at randomized, controlled clinical trials, so lacking that, we look for something that does no harm.” For patients receiving immune-suppressants or transplant patients, essential oils can interfere with medication. So, that’s a no, no. Everyone else is advised to consult with their primary care provider before beginning any type of aromatherapy. If your doctor cannot answer your questions, they can refer you to appropriate resources for information. After that, Gershan says, “Choose the appropriate oil for the condition or reason you are trying to help. Also, we never recommend ingesting essential oils. There is some evidencebased reasoning for ingestion when working with gastrointestinal issues or for patients with irritable bowel syndrome, otherwise, there are no good reasons to ingest [essential oils.]” Gershan suggests first doing a patch test on the inside of the wrist to ensure you’re not allergic. Be sure to use essential oils at the proper dilution. “In pediatrics, we have a group of essential oils that our nurses are very well versed in and that are pre-diluted,” says Gershan. “We never use [essential oils] in children under age 2 unless there is a higher level of training.” If you’re ever unsure, Gershan suggests consulting with a certified aromatherapist for guidance. Also, be sure to store your essential oils properly because they can degrade, oxidize or even become other chemicals over time. Store in dark bottles inside a refrigerator and take extra precautions whenever children are around. Note: Check with your veterinarian to ensure pet safety whenever bringing essential oils into the home. Some can be harmful to dogs and cats. Never use essential oils on your pets’ skin, nails or fur without guidance from your veterinarian and keep oils out of pets’ reach.

HOW CAN CONSUMERS DETERMINE QUALITY?

“That is really hard because there are no FDA regulations,” says Gershan. Identify as far as you can determine, that your supplier, whether a person or a company, is reliable and that

People automatically associate lavender with relaxation. Lavender is often used for anxiety.

We Have Winter Toy Loans! their essential oils are being produced according to best practices. Remember, essential oils come from plants. It takes 250 pounds of lavender to make one pound of essential oil so there can be a lot of financial pressure on suppliers to cut corners. Some companies adulterate their essential oils because it’s expensive to buy the real thing. The word “pure” means nothing without regulation. So be aware and try to learn where your essential oils come from and if the plants have been grown according to a commitment to sustainability. That said, you need not be overwhelmed by the science of it all. Consider this, if you apply three different lavender essential oils to a scent strip, they will each smell a little bit different. The first thing you smell are the lighter fractions or the more easily evaporating chemicals. Come back

later and smell what’s left. Do you like what you smell? Is this something you feel you can use over time?

Peppermint oils

Peppermint oil has been used for nausea for hundreds of years. It’s used a lot for headaches and works particularly well for tension headaches when muscles in the jaw and scalp are very tense.

which has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral effects. It can even be used as an insect repellent. Once again, it’s best to know your supplier and what you’re getting because not all have the same properties. Gershan cautions users to be aware of proper dilution to avoid skin sensitivity. “It may not be until after the fourth time you’ve been exposed that you experience a rash or irritation.”

Chamomile oil:

Some types have sedative properties and it can be good for gastrointestinal distress by diluting a solution for rubbing on the belly. Another type can be used on the skin since it has great anti-inflammatory properties. Depending on how you mix it, a solution could be helpful for eczema. Be aware of any potential allergies. Certain flower or plant allergies can be triggered by plant-based oils.

Peppermint oil:

Peppermint oil has been used for nausea for hundreds of years. But remember, less is more. Too much peppermint can actually make you nauseous. It works by relaxing smooth muscle, so it’s a great antispasmodic when diluted and rubbed on the back or belly. It’s used a lot for headaches and works particularly well for tension headaches when muscles in the jaw and scalp are very tense. Gershan says, “An interesting study in postpartum women who had trouble urinating seemed to be helped [with use of peppermint oil].” She adds that the muscle around our blood vessels is also smooth, so users with any blood pressure issues should

use caution. Peppermint oil is not recommended for children under age 12 without a doctor’s consultation.

Lemon oil:

Citrus oils have similar properties that are effective in energizing or alerting. “Some studies have been done in Alzheimer’s patients and have helped with alertness,” Gershan says. Another good use might be before taking an exam. Those with ADD and ADHD have also found citrus oils helpful either by diffusion or inhalation. Topical use of citrus oils has an increased incidence of skin sensitivity and sun sensitivity and can cause rashes. Gershan says, “Citrus oils also degrade pretty quickly every time you open the bottle. So, open only when you need to and store it in fridge.”

ARE DIFFUSERS BETTER THAN TOPICAL USE?

“There are wet and dry diffusers,” says Gershan. “Anyone with respiratory issues issues [e.g. asthma or cystic fibrosis] or are immunocompromised should use a dry diffuser because even if you clean a wet diffuser, there is still potential for mold to grow and mold spores to be emitted.” It’s also good to be sensitive to other people who are smelling your diffuser, how long you have it on and what you’re using it for. Some people can get headaches and children are more sensitive. Plus, your brain habituates to most scents after a while. Everyone is different. But if you’re smelling the same thing all of the time, you may experience a decline in efficacy.

Super foods have made their way into our dietary lexicon. Although no specific food is likely a silver bullet of nutrition. Super foods are known as such because they are nutrient-rich and considered to be beneficial for health and well-being.

In Edina, many locally owned and operated restaurants make finding smart, healthy meals containing super foods a breeze. Here are some of our favorite super food packed menu items along with some insight into what makes them such super choices.

SKINNY BUDDHA

The nutty, whole grain goodness of super grain quinoa is the backbone of this nutrient-packed dish. Besides beating out other grains in fiber content and being gluten free to boot, quinoa is nutrient rich, with high amounts of your daily protein, iron, B vitamins, potassium and calcium. Rounding out the base of this powerhouse is dark leafy green kale. Fiber is obviously a big bonus for this super food, but dark leafy greens like kale are thought to help reduce risks of chronic illnesses such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Avocado, with its healthy fats and potassium and other nutrients, is no slouch when it comes to helping your heart, making this paleo dish a real standout.

Built around wild arugula and organic baby kale, this salad keeps it coming with super food superstars. Quinoa and avocado make an appearance alongside protein-rich sunflower sprouts. The chia seeds topping this well-rounded salad are a great example of super food seeds which, with nuts, bring plant-based protein and fiber to the table. For a dose of healthy fat and omega-3 fatty acids, add some Antarctic salmon on top. This fish super food contains plenty of protein, potassium and B vitamins.

THE GOOD EARTH BURGER

Come on, it doesn’t all have to be salads and smoothies. What’s eye-catching about this burger is all the wholesome toppings adding flavor and nutrients to the grass-fed beef. We’ve already sung the praises of avocado, but the portabella mushrooms on this sandwich add an even broader spectrum of antioxidants unique to the fungi family. And as if the beef didn’t offer enough protein, the sunflower sprouts boost protein content while adding vitamin C into the mix. Choose a multi-grain bun and a side of fruit or a field green salad to round out the health benefits of this hearty dish.

Skip the white rice in favor of healthy whole grain brown rice as the base of this dish. In addition to onions and scallions, garlic and ginger make a key appearance in Peoples Organic’s fried rice. Garlic reached super food status for containing vitamins including C and B6, making it a great immune system fortifier. Ginger also makes the super food list for its antioxidants and properties which are thought to reduce the risk of chronic diseases including heart disease and dementia.

Well, it goes like this: 10 holes, just smaller than a ball, are drilled in the ice in a pattern just like traditional bowling pins at the end of a bowling lane. A game consists of four players with two bowlers per team. One player from each team plays at each end of the lane. Each player has a turn to throw the ball across the ice in their attempt to drop that ball into a scoring hole. You score only if your ball drops into a hole and does not roll over it. First team to 21, or highest score when time runs out, wins. Now, LET’S PLAY! All proceeds from ticket sales and registration go directly to colon cancer research and support.

Keeping Kids Safe and On Course

Especially for Children adapts to give children normalcy in abnormal times.

T

he pandemic has created many challenges for individuals, families and organizations. Consistent, safe and high-quality childcare has been vital in supporting children’s development and allowing families to work. At Especially for Children, leaders, staff and families are working hard to maintain safe environments so children can experience normalcy during these abnormal times. “We are so grateful for the dedication and flexibility of our staff and families as we navigate this time,” marketing director Angie Williams says. “Children have lost a lot during the pandemic, and the opportunity to ensure they are still learning, playing and growing means so much to all of us.” As Especially for Children has adapted to keep children and teaching staff safe during the pandemic, it has maintained a focus on play-based learning led by caring and experienced teachers. Especially for Children encourages infants through Pre-K children to explore and discover and provides peace of mind to parents and families. The curriculum focuses on whole-child development, is driven by each child’s individual interests and prepares children for Kindergarten and beyond.

“Our curriculum is grounded in research on how children best learn and how their growth and development can be supported and challenged in age-appropriate ways,” Williams says. The organization has eight locations, with two in Edina offering the same child-centered, play-based programming, but in unique spaces. The Edinborough location features an indoor park with plenty of amenities, while the West 70th Street location touts a large, natural outdoor playground surrounded by beautiful oak trees. “We are proud of the longevity of our leadership teams at both of our Edina locations, and we have many dedicated, long-term teaching staff as well,” says Williams. The organization is NAEYC accredited and has earned a 4-star rating from Parent Aware. It has also been awarded Best of Edina five times. Visit Especially for Children to see if it is right for you and your child.

Elevate Your Food Experience

LOCAL RESTAURANTEUR WANTS TO NOURISH YOUR BODY AND MIND. WRITTEN BY ANGELA JOHNSON

Anne Spaeth, owner of The Lynhall, senses our collective fatigue with the crises of 2020 and she wants to provide some comfort and nourishment to the community as we head into the new year. The Lynhall opened its second location in Edina this past summer after enduring a pandemic related

shutdown of its Minneapolis location followed by being boarded up for a time during unrest in the city. “Having this place [in Edina] has been like having a new baby,” Spaeth says. “In Edina, people have very much shown that they are comfortable dining in and that gives us hope because we cannot survive on

just take-out and delivery.” One can see why diners would appreciate the Edina Lynhall’s spacious and airy atmosphere. The high ceilings, long tables and locally sourced decor feels relaxed and inviting without feeling too cozy amid an ongoing pandemic. And the team is committed to providing nourishment beyond food with collaborative local events on the new Nolan Mains plaza at 50th and France. By extending the work of its Nourish speaker series, Spaeth hopes to offer in person and webinar-based events geared toward helping people build resilience in their bodies and minds. She speaks from the heart regarding our much-needed sense of fortitude during these times. “When people talk to me about starting a business, I say, ‘the idea is the easy part.’ Next to having children, this has been the most humbling experience of my life, to be a business owner in a pandemic and during riots.” Spaeth is encouraged by the outpouring of support from the local Edina business community. She says, “We had people coming over during construction, so excited and wanting us to succeed so they might also succeed.” Being in Edina also fits perfectly with Spaeth’s vision for The Lynhall. She lived in London and traveled the

world with her financial executive husband whom she jokingly blames for her developed obsession with quality food. She says, “In London, I loved that I could go into a darling little café and pick up a beautiful roasted chicken with broccoli … I’m not a cook. My husband has always been the cook in our family, but he was traveling for work and [in London] I felt like I could feed my young son good, nourishing food made with fresh ingredients. I could have an instant meal and feel confident

I was putting healthy food in his body.” Spaeth says she discovered how good food could taste and how quality ingredients make such a difference. Her husband has since ventured into cattle ranching in Wyoming causing Spaeth to also gain an awareness of how animal management can affect the taste of meat. She notes how even vegetables can taste better when they come from soil that is lovingly tended without the use of pesticides. All of this has culminated into Spaeth’s realization

that there was an opportunity here for someone to create that European kind of elevated food experience for busy professionals, families and empty nesters. A big part of what The Lynhall is known for is its house-made pastries and breads that then become the basis of its brunch and sandwich options. But Spaeth wants people to know about the restaurant’s “spectacular dinners with multiple roasted meats, fish and family style meal options.” Expanded dinner hours mean diners can enjoy

The Lynhall’s elevated meal experience in a comfortable, relaxed environment where there’s no need to get dressed up in order to get good food. Spaeth says The Lynhall has expanded its dinner menu and more take-out and delivery options are available for guests who still don’t feel comfortable dining inside a restaurant. Innovation born of necessity was aided by a friend. During last spring’s shutdown, a friend of Spaeth’s in Florida called to ask how she could help. She resolved to purchase

30 Lynhall meals for other friends in the metro and asked if Spaeth would deliver them. Spaeth said “sure,” and she personally cruised all over the Twin Cities delivering meals. “I saw a lot of the Twin Cities,” says Spaeth who, as a hockey mom, was surprised to discover that her many excursions to metro ice rinks could leave so much still unseen. But, more than that, the endeavor sparked an idea and Spaeth began to ponder the possibility that people might subscribe to at least weekly dinner deliveries from The Lynhall; a take on those home delivery meal kits, except you don’t have to cook the meal! She says, “People love the convenience of technology, so if we can figure out how much of an appetite diners

Located 20 minutes West of Lake Minnetonka have for regular meal delivery, and if we could tweak the delivery model and demonstrate that amazing food can be delivered directly to your door and you only have to pop the box and put it on your table …” this could be a game changer. “This neighborhood has already demonstrated to us that there is likely that level of support,” says Spaeth. And once even more diners get acquainted with The Lynhall experience, we assume local support will continue to grow.

Distance Learning with Dad Edina student expresses how we all felt. WE REGULARLY FEATURE photo submissions from our Images of Edina photo contest in the pages of Edina Magazine and online. This month, we asked Leah Steidl to tell us about her photograph titled Distance Learning with Dad. What’s your favorite thing about this image?

The reality of it all. This moment was exactly how I felt about distance learning. I look at it and I feel it. BY ANGELA JOHNSON PHOTO BY LEAH STEIDL

What inspired the shot?

I decided that if we had to be on lockdown, I was going to make the best of it and document our daily life. I vowed to take at least one shot a day of, I hate to say it, but our new normal, I wanted Etta (and myself!) to be able to

look back on this time and see how we managed through 2020 and all things COVID-19. Do you typically take photos like this or is this out of the norm for you?

I tend to take a lot of photos, but I rarely use my camera indoors so I would say that this is out of the norm for me. Also, I don’t tend to focus on everyday life when I have my camera out; it’s always event focused. What prompted you to submit your photo to Images of Edina?

Social media! I follow Edina Magazine and the city of Edina on Facebook and I knew I had some photos that just might fit the contest.
