Our foodie special edition of The Green Parent will be available on shelves this month. It's packed with great articles and lots of delicious recipes to try at home, plus there's a free natural beauty guide inside every copy. Two great magazines for the price of one!
We decided to focus on food for our Aug/Sept edition of the magazine and wanted to squeeze in plenty of inspiring recipes and ideas for getting families involved in the kitchen. Rebecca Narracott shares her tips for making mealtimes a fun, pleasurable experience for all. Think creating menus, decorating the table and even washing up together! Phil Vickery has compiled a gorgeous selection of yummy lunchbox ideas for picnics or meals on the go. And best of all, they are all gluten-free (though you wouldn’t know it!). Regular writer, Andrea Mynard meets one of the Fabulous Baker Brothers and learns how he turned his children’s school grounds into a wheat field. Plus check out an amazing long fermentation bread recipe that you can make at home.
Other life changing features include how to be a better mother by making time for self-care, Claire Ashbourne’s article on why you and your family need more vitamin D and, most importantly, how to get it and the best yoga holidays for you and your family.
We love Claire Potter’s account of being a freegan for a day and skip-diving for dinner with her young son and Joan Gorman’s colourful craft project, which is perfect for the family to make together.
The free natural beauty guide inside is packed with ideas for making your own skincare and hair products. An article on anti-aging explains how exercising your facial muscles can provide a natural facelift and shave years off plus we also reveal all the 2012 Natural Beauty Awards winners. It’s a great handbag sized guide so pop it in your bag to help you make the best decisions when out shopping.
