I love magazines. I subscribe to the Next Issue app but I still have about fifteen print magazines delivered to my home monthly. To me, there is nothing like reading a glossy over coffee! When the Mister received Dr. Oz’s The Good Life magazine I was surprised since he mainly subscribes to magazines like Wired and I quickly snatched it up to read. I don’t catch his television show as much as I would like but I love that he inspires so many!
The battle for your health is going to be won in your kitchen, your bedroom, and your living room–and these are the places where The Good Life will empower you. – Dr. Oz
My favorite articles from theMarch/April debut issue were:
The bounce-back lessons from a champ – Olympic gold medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace gave tips for moving forward after a setback. Who hasn’t been there?
Make The Most of Your Multivitamin – Do you take a multivitamin? I am guilty of not taking a multivitamin every day so this provided insights on why it is necessary for a healthy diet.
Is organic milk better for your family? – A great read for those that struggle with organic foods (and it’s price tag). I will continue to purchase organic milk because I’m concerned about the overall effect of toxins AND how organic farming is better for the animals.
The recipes! I added the Gemelli with Oven-Roasted Tomatoes and Ricotta and the Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese to my Get Fit Diva menu-planning arsenal. Say that three times fast, right? I made the spaghetti with pesto and my boys loved it. Next time I will add the kale! The chocolate recipes (and tantalizing photographs) made me scream mercy. They were made with dark chocolate so since dark chocolate has zero calories (I kid, I kid), I want to make the triple chocolate cookies for my family (read: me).
There were lots of great features like the 10 “OMG” diets that shed light on quirky fad diets (I had NO idea about The Drinking Man’s Diet!) and Healthy Meal Builder tips.
If you are looking to add to your magazine arsenal, I suggest Dr. Oz The Good Life. The experts in love, food, fitness, money, home, and sex create a well-rounded magazine that is great start to finish. I loved that Dr. Oz ended with a Rx for Optimism. This quote resonated with me:
The biggest enemy to optimism: standing still. So watch what happens when you take a few steps. Much of life’s satisfaction comes not from looking behind you, but rather from getting jazzed about what’s waiting up ahead. – Dr. Oz’s Rx for Optimism
