Inside the August issue of MiNDFOOD


Inside the August issue of MiNDFOOD
Take an exclusive first look inside our August edition of MiNDFOOD, a special island issue, with actress Emma Watson on the cover.

Cover Story: Emma Watson

Navigating the perils of being a child star is enough to test even the most down-to-earth of actors, but when you’re a naturally shy and private person, the impact is even greater. Enchanting young actor Emma Watson is certainly grounded – her parents made sure of that – but she also pursues what is important to her, whether that be having a semblance of control over her “weird” life, making teenagers feel less alone or working toward gender equality.

Community: A Losing Battle

The war on drugs has been so spectacularly unsuccessful that a growing movement is pushing for drug-use to be treated as a health issue, rather than a criminal act. Such a shift will not only help people beat their addictions, advocates say, but will also reduce the burden of drug-related crime, deaths and disease.

Health: Give It A Rest

Technology may have a role in helping us get a good night’s sleep, with multiple apps available to aid rest and relaxation. But experts believe having a smartphone within reach at all times may be causing more harm than good.

Smart Eating: Managing Menopause

A time of great upheaval for many women, the symptoms of menopause can be tempered by choosing the right foods and making lifestyle changes.

Psychology: Clean Break

Breaking up is never easy and social media often makes the experience worse. MiNDFOOD’s resident psychologist gives advice on how to part ways in the digital age.

Beauty: Fresh From LA

On a recent trip to Los Angeles, MiNDFOOD hunted down the latest beauty trends set to influence the industry, from IV vitamin drips to juice cures.

Food: In-Season Citrus

The fresh tang of lemon, lime, grapefruit or mandarin is a beautiful addition to winter cooking. Plus, make you own flavoured butter; MiNDFOOD’s edit of organic and biodynamic wines; comforting recipes to see you through the rest of winter; and raw versions of your favourite baked goods, a treat not only for the tastebuds but for your body too.
