When anyone mentions the name "Martha Stewart", I immediately have feelings of inadequacy. The way she effortlessly frosts a ridiculously beautiful cake while fashioning some doily out of crystallized sugar, all the while her dogs are all perfect and not crapping on her carpet. Not my life.
But I just discovered Whole Living. It's been around in some capacity since 1974, when it was called New Age Journal. Then it was rebranded as Body+Soul in 2002 and acquired by Martha's media company in 2004. A year ago, the name was changed to Whole Living.
Don't let the former name, New Age Journal, scare you. There is nothing new age about this mag. It's a combination of fitness, health, beauty and green living. The recipes are easy to follow with pretty pictures (and nutrition information). Plus, the website has a bunch of good stuff. Really, it's the closest I've ever felt (and ever will) to Martha Stewart.
Here's the best part...you can actually leave the magazine out in the open! I have to cancel my Women's Health because I don't think my 3 pre-teen daughters need to know "26 New Tips to Drive Your Man Wild".
Any other magazines out there that folks recommend?
