Issue Twelve Winter 2015

Winter is here – and with it comes an invigorating feeling, the comfort of rugging up, and the lure of delicious foods. For this issue of be. magazine, we’ve brought together ideas, stories, recipes and expert advice to help you get the most out of the chilly season. 

The colder months are the perfect time to enjoy nourishing, comforting meals. To help you have the most delicious winter yet, we’re excited to bring you the Warm Up recipe book, free with this issue of the magazine. Full of vibrant and soothing recipes from five of our favourite Australian food bloggers, this collection has everything you need to brighten up a gloomy winter’s day.

Curling up by a crackling fire with a good book and a hot cocoa is always nice – but sometimes the best way to experience winter is to get right out there into the natural world. Be rejuvenated by the fresh air, whether it’s on a wintery hike in the wilderness or just a weekend bike ride to a far-off café.  Our outdoor adventure feature will give you plenty of inspiration to embrace the elements.

And of course, nurturing your wellbeing from the inside out is an important part of winter. Our expert contributors delve into a range of health topics, from special diets to reduce inflammation, to nourishing your body post-exercise, to using acupressure during pregnancy. We also have inspiring stories from Olympic swimmer Cameron McEvoy, dancers from Bangarra Dance Theatre, a midwife working in the Australian outback, and many more.

We hope you enjoy this issue of be. magazine.
