The Villages - November 2021 - 2

CHECKING IN
BY RICA KEENUM
Savoring The Flavors This Fall
The holidays are a time for feasting and gathering. But breaking bread with
loved ones doesn't have to lead to belly aches and post-meal guilt. According
to Deborah Waddell, savory meals can be delicious, satisfying and healthy too.
As founder of The Villages Whole Food Plant-Based club, Waddell talks
about her career in environmental science, which led to the healthcare field
where she worked as a national, board certified acupuncture physician and
acquired a certificate in plant-based nutrition.
" I also sat on the editorial advisory board of Natural Practitioner Magazine,
where I was a regular contributing writer and expert on plant-based nutrition,
Chinese medicine and acupuncture, " she said.
Armed with that experience, she began teaching classes about nutrition
and the power of foods for life extension after moving to The Villages. Since
then, she's written a cookbook chock full of plant-based foods that are
surprisingly healthy. Her friend Kathy Geremia, also a member of the club,
explains that her plant-based diet has helped her feel healthy throughout her
breast cancer chemotherapy treatments. She relies on Waddell's recipe when
preparing healthy meals. Among her favorites are the buffalo cauliflower
wings. But there are many favorites, she notes.
Find out more about Waddell and her club in this issue, and read about the
unexpected health crisis that led her to revamp her diet.
But that's not all that's on the menu. Check out recipes with photos
that will make you drool as we tour local eateries. With 11 country club
restaurants and dozens of additional food venues, The Villages is the place for
foodies. If you're up for a meal at home, we've got plenty to get you cooking -
from Southern pot roast to Cajun redfish, there's something for every appetite.
And to quench your thirst, we've included incredible drink recipes, such as the
fruity blackberry sangria and the adventurous Havana Hurricane. Make them
at home or use the recipes and photos as inspiration to try a new restaurant.
If you've come to us on a full stomach, flip over to stories about
community members. Jenean Best shows off her shiny metal handiwork in
this issue, and tells us about the history and process of making chain maille.
In its early days, the steel coils kept enemy blades from piercing knights in
battle. Best became interested in it when her daughter-in-law introduced the
craft as a means to make unique and beautiful jewelry, noting chain maille
was vastly different from anything she'd previously done.
" I was actually in the IT field - a very left-brain job, and this is a very right
brain hobby, " she said. Soon, Best began exploring new designs and materials,
including rose gold, copper, titanium, sterling silver or niobium. See her
stunning pieces and find out how to join her next class.
Plus, we're talking to pet owners, car collectors and other interesting
residents. Kick back and enjoy the November edition.
See you next month for more fun!
