This issue marks Woodbury Magazine’s first of 2023—and, like many of our own New Year’s resolutions, it’s themed wellness and education. In these pages, you’ll meet new faces (and see a familiar one!), find a couple of health-conscious recipes and enjoy the fruits of our great community.
I appreciate meeting our neighbors with new perspectives, and resident food blogger Molli Pletcher shares a wealth of information about nutritious eating habits. From wholesome food swaps to incorporating nourishing foods into meals, she helps us step into 2023 with wellness on our plates. Find her recipes and more in Food Swap on page 42.
We also meet Woodbury resident Silvia Perez on page 26. In For the Love of Theater, writer Mollee Francisco speaks with Perez about her native country of Uruguay, her journey to Minnesota and her passion for the arts. On the importance of theater, Perez says, “It brings people together and opens children to perspectives in a way that is fun and engaging … It unleashes the power of imagination.”
Looking toward the trends, columnist and culinary and brand director for Kowalski’s Markets Rachael Perron writes about a delicious viral sensation (page 16) that’s both pretty and tasty; writer Daniel Huss examines the continuing trend of cold plunging (page 30); and our friends at Face Foundrié break down the must-haves for winter skin care (page 22).
Happy New Year, readers. See you next month!
