A growing number of Americans are moving away from meat and more toward plant-based foods, a development that comes with the promise of glowing health and expanding culinary horizons. Writer April Thompson shares the secrets of making this a seamless transition in “The Roots of Good Health: Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet.
       
Thompson takes this concept a step further with “Meatless Makeover: A Plant-Based Spin on Classic Dishes,” complete with recipes for Vegan Popcorn “Chicken”, Walnut Meat Tacos and a mouth-watering Mushroom and Sage Wellington.
       
Plants also play a starring role in this month’s expanded Plant Medicine section, which dives deep into hemp and CBD. Hemp, a crop that was illegal in U.S. soil for about 50 years, is now reaching for the sun as this no-buzz cousin to marijuana fuels high hopes among farmers, agricultural researchers, manufacturers and consumers for its use in a host of fiber-based products and its potential to combat climate change. Don’t miss Julie Peterson’s enlightening article, “Hemp Gets Hot: Meet the Hardest Working Plant on the Planet.”
   
Be sure to check out all that Natural Awakenings has to offer this month, from
natural cold remedies for kids to inspiring words from Meg Lundstrom about
“synchronicity” and how we can encourage the sometimes life-changing “coincidences” that can have a profound influence on our lives.

Here’s to plants as food and medicine,
Holly
