Re­think­ing Novem­ber

Prevention (USA) - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

POP QUIZ: What has this month al­ways been about? Fam­ily and turkey, right?

Well, here at Pre­ven­tion we like to keep ev­ery­body on their toes (in­clud­ing our­selves!), so we’ve taken a slightly dif­fer­ent ap­proach to Novem­ber this year. For one thing, we rec­og­nize that fam­ily doesn’t al­ways bring com­fort and joy, and that a lot of peo­ple are lonely around the hol­i­days— some­times even when sur­rounded by other peo­ple. Our look at how lone­li­ness is an im­por­tant health is­sue (“A Quiet Cri­sis,” page 62) will, I hope, give you the rea­sons and tools to con­nect with peo­ple you value who help you feel val­ued right back.

On a lighter note, in­stead of giv­ing you Thanks­giv­ing recipes— I bet you’ve got your sweet pota­toes all fig­ured out—we’re giv­ing you pizza. For me, pizza ac­tu­ally says fam­ily even more than turkey and pota­toes, since I have roots in the two pizza cap­i­tals of the U.S., Chicago and New York City. It’s the per­fect food to feed the crowd who stuck around af­ter Thanks­giv­ing but can’t eat an­other bite of stuff­ing—and in my house, at least, it’s the meal we would eat ev­ery day if it were bet­ter for us. So our test kitchen staff put their in­cred­i­ble minds to it and came up with the healthy pizza recipes on page 76 that you could eat ev­ery day. And folks, I would never let you eat a bad pizza, or even a medi­ocre one. So please en­joy! And as al­ways, if you have thoughts on pizza or any­thing else, you can reach us at let­[email protected]­ven­tion.com.

This is hap­pi­ness: two of my fa­vorite guys (my brother and my son) shar­ing a pizza my hus­band made.
