Style Magazine - January 2023

I’ll forever be a café connoisseur. From the coffee (of course!) to the décor, and the people to the pastries, I have incredibly specific standards. Walking in, I want the ambiance to be lively but not too loud; music is a must, as are ample outlets and infinite nooks and crannies to cozy up at. Bonus points if they make their own baked goods, have strong Wi-Fi (and even stronger coffee), and stay open late. I won’t disclose my favorites, but I will say they’re all mentioned in this month’s feature, “Cool Beans,” where contributor Sharon Penny writes about our region’s robust coffee culture. Read her roundup of the top spots and what makes each one buzzworthy—be it a primo patio, house-made syrups, or sustainably sourced beans— starting on page 62. In true new year’s fashion, we also have plenty of healthy living content—both physical and mental—this month. Turn to “Get Fit” on page 20 to learn about three elite athletes who live locally, including a skilled cyclist, an Ironman (who was told he’d never run again after a debilitating auto accident), and a young soccer star. Their words of well-being wisdom and stories of stamina are sure to inspire. Finally, in “Clear the Cutter” on page 56, area experts tell us their top tips for “living a life you love to come home to, knowing where all your stuff is, and lessening the load of what’s no longer serving you.” As someone who lives in a small space with small kiddos (who make big, BIG messes), I can honestly say that having an organized home does indeed create a calming, less chaotic environment; and, like coffee, makes everything better. Cheers! —Megan megan@stylemg.com

One of my first (and favorite!) jobs<br />

was at a coffee shop. Sure, the 5<br />

a.m. shifts were grueling, but I<br />

quickly adapted and even started<br />

to enjoy rising with the sun—<br />

something I still savor today. The<br />

smells (scones baking, coffee brewing) and<br />

sounds (milk frothing, customers conversing),<br />

mixed with all the regulars and their adjectivefilled<br />

orders (medium, iced, sugar-free caramel,<br />

oat milk, half-caf latte), made for mornings that<br />

were full of both familiarity and fun.<br />

Though my coffee shop career is over, I’ll<br />

forever be a café connoisseur. From the coffee<br />

(of course!) to the décor, and the people to the<br />

pastries, I have incredibly specific standards.<br />

Walking in, I want the ambiance to be lively but not too loud; music is a must, as are<br />

ample outlets and infinite nooks and crannies to cozy up at. Bonus points if they make<br />

their own baked goods, have strong Wi-Fi (and even stronger coffee), and stay open<br />

late. I won’t disclose my favorites, but I will say they’re all mentioned in this month’s<br />

feature, “Cool Beans,” where contributor Sharon Penny<br />

writes about our region’s robust coffee culture. Read<br />

“Live life her roundup of the top spots and what makes each one<br />

three elite athletes who live locally, including a skilled<br />

—Meik Wiking, cyclist, an Ironman (who was told he’d never run again<br />

The Little Book after a debilitating auto accident), and a young soccer<br />

of Hygge<br />

star. Their words of well-being wisdom and stories of<br />

stamina are sure to inspire.<br />

Check out “In the Mood for Superfoods” on page 38 for 13 staples to keep stocked,<br />

along with some palatable preparation ideas. One of the suggestions, lentil soup, is<br />

one of my family’s current favorites.<br />

Finally, in “Clear the Cutter” on page 56, area experts tell us their top tips for “living<br />

a life you love to come home to, knowing where all your stuff is, and lessening the<br />

load of what’s no longer serving you.” As someone who lives in a small space with<br />

small kiddos (who make big, BIG messes), I can honestly say that having an organized<br />

home does indeed create a calming, less chaotic environment; and, like coffee, makes<br />

everything better. Cheers!<br />

coffee can shine on its own!<br />

The first step to healthy eating is ensuring you have<br />

healthy ingredients. Pantries, in particular, tend to be<br />

stocked with sugar-laden, highly processed products,<br />

as opposed to good-for-you, filling foods. Wondering<br />

what to fill yours with? We asked Tasha Rosales, certified<br />

nutritionist at Wellness Homemade (wellnesshomemade.<br />

about ’em on our website.<br />


Raise your hand if you want to literally have a<br />

Get Fit<br />

Spotlight on<br />

Athletes<br />


It’s a new year, and we have a sneaking<br />

suspicion that you may have made a<br />

resolution to get fit. To help you stick<br />

with it, we gathered advice from three<br />

local athletes across myriad activities.<br />

Although they may seem intimidating (in<br />

a good way!), their advice is simple and<br />

straightforward—and their stories inspiring.<br />

Shawn Remy ‣<br />

Shawn Remy, the store manager at Bob’s Cycle<br />

Center in Roseville, has been the “king of stoke” at<br />

Giant Bicycles for the past four years. Cycling has<br />

been his main discipline for the past 17 years; this<br />

year, he’s planning to go cross-country mountain<br />

biking along with road and gravel racing—all while<br />

being supported by his daughters, Torrance and<br />

Tegan, and fiancé, Erin.<br />

When did you first become interested in fitness?<br />

I first showed interest in cycling when I was young<br />

while watching my cousins race mountain bikes.<br />

It looked so awesome! Although I participated in<br />

many sports throughout childhood (roller hockey,<br />

baseball, football, aggressive inline skating, and<br />

skateboarding), it wasn’t until my early 20s when I truly<br />

picked up cycling as a lifestyle, followed by pursuing<br />

mountain biking in 2019.<br />

What aspects of fitness are you most interested in?<br />

I love how fitness has been the truest form of therapy<br />

over the years. Great music, paired with a great<br />

workout, helps me tackle life’s toughest challenges<br />

with the most positive mental attitude possible.<br />

What are your top fitness tips?<br />

Listen to your body, eat healthy, and remember that<br />

recovery is key.<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

What’s the first thing someone can do to begin a<br />

fitness routine?<br />

Start small; building your way up to something big<br />

makes all the difference!<br />

Devyn Chambers <br />

Devyn Chambers may only be a freshman at Oakmont High<br />

School, but she already has a lot of sports experience under her<br />

belt. She started playing soccer when she was just five years old<br />

and has competed competitively for the past seven. In February<br />

of last year, she took up track and field; last summer, after just<br />

mere months of practice, she placed fourth in long jump (in<br />

her age group) at the 2022 National Junior Olympic Track &<br />

Field Championships. When not competing, you can find her<br />

spending time with friends or reading a good book.<br />

When did you first become interested in fitness?<br />

I’ve always been interested in it! My parents have always<br />

encouraged me to try different sports to see which ones I like and<br />

want to [pursue]. Besides track and soccer, I’ve also participated<br />

in gymnastics, martial arts, lacrosse, basketball, golf, and softball.<br />

What aspects of fitness are you most interested in?<br />

The social part of working out and how it makes me feel. Most of<br />

the activities I’ve participated in are team-oriented, and I enjoy<br />

having friends who are interested in the same sport. We all push<br />

each other to be better, and the friendly competition makes it<br />

fun. I also like how working out makes me feel. I find it satisfying<br />

knowing I’ve gone out on the field or the track and really pushed<br />

myself.<br />

What are your top fitness tips?<br />

Just start! And then slowly interval your way up (for example,<br />

slowly increase weights or reps and go for longer periods of<br />

time). Also, find an activity you like so it doesn’t feel monotonous.<br />

What’s the first thing someone can do to begin a fitness<br />

routine?<br />

Create a reasonable plan or objective and find something you<br />

enjoy.<br />

Bob Gitsham <br />

Folsom resident and Ironman Bob Gitsham is a lifelong athlete<br />

and credits it for saving his life. He was gravely injured in a serious<br />

car accident just over three years ago and used his passion for<br />

the sport as motivation to leave the hospital. At home, Gitsham<br />

likes to spend time with his wife, Jennifer, two sons, Owen and<br />

Cheyne, and daughter, Mia.<br />

When did you first become interested in fitness?<br />

I’ve always been active and played sports growing up, including<br />

football in college. About five years ago, I took my fitness to<br />

another level and got in triathlons—followed by Ironmans. After<br />

my accident, I was in the hospital for 40 days, five of which were<br />

in a coma, and I didn’t walk for six months.<br />

What aspects of fitness are you most interested in?<br />

I like to see how far I can push myself, hence doing Ironman<br />

events, which consist of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and<br />

a marathon (26.2 miles). Doing those races not only challenges<br />

me physically but more so mentally.<br />

What are your top fitness tips?<br />

Eat clean, get good sleep, and be disciplined in being consistent<br />

with working out.<br />

What’s the first thing someone can do to begin a fitness<br />

routine?<br />

Put your beer or wine down, get off the couch, and go for a walk<br />

three or four times a week, and then build off that.<br />

<br />

Pitch Perfect<br />




Our region is blessed with a plethora of<br />

multifaceted musicians who truly delight<br />

in bringing their passion for music to the<br />

community. Here are four noteworthy<br />

performers to watch.<br />

P<br />

icking up the violin for the first time<br />

in middle school, Fara Elizalde’s<br />

talent led her to perform in community<br />

orchestras throughout the Bay Area and<br />

Sacramento; eventually, she became one<br />

of the founding members of the Folsom<br />

Lake Symphony where “the players have<br />

fun and support one another while being<br />

Fara Elizalde<br />

INSTRUMENT: Violin<br />

challenged to rise to higher<br />

levels of musicianship.”<br />

What attracts you to the<br />

violin?<br />

The power that can<br />

emanate from this small<br />

piece of wood never ceases<br />

to amaze me. As they say in<br />

the Harry Potter series, “the<br />

wand chooses the wizard.”<br />

The violin is versatile—it<br />

reaches down to mellow,<br />

warm tones yet can also<br />

soar to much higher,<br />

clearer notes.<br />

What challenges have<br />

you faced?<br />

I knew music would<br />

always be an important<br />

part of my life, yet I<br />

chose a corporate career<br />

path. Finding a balance<br />

between my professional<br />

life and the time I'd like to<br />

devote to practicing can<br />

be challenging. At times,<br />

I must compromise the<br />

quality of my violin playing to keep up<br />

with work and family life.<br />

Any tips for beginning musicians?<br />

Don't worry so much about the elusive<br />

quest for perfection or how others will<br />

judge your abilities. Smile while you play,<br />

and practice, practice, practice!<br />

Francesca Anderson<br />

INSTRUMENT: Flute<br />

C<br />

onsidering accomplished<br />

flutist Francesca Anderson’s<br />

teachers in high school and college<br />

were major influences in her<br />

music, it’s fitting that she also<br />

enjoys teaching. “My students make<br />

me proud every year with their<br />

accomplishments; many of them<br />

have been accepted into local and<br />

state honor bands and the<br />

Sacramento Youth Symphony.”<br />

You learned to play the flute<br />

when you were nine years old.<br />

What do you love most about it?<br />

From classical symphonic groups<br />

and rock bands, to beat boxing and<br />

jazz, the flute can do it all! Making<br />

music with my colleagues is also<br />

[incredibly] rewarding.<br />

What has been a noteworthy<br />

performance?<br />

I feel blessed every time I can<br />

perform. When the audience loves<br />

a performance and reacts with<br />

loud applause and a standing<br />

ovation, it’s the best feeling. I<br />

hope everyone has a chance to<br />

experience the power and magic of<br />

a live musical performance.<br />

Any advice for aspiring flutists?<br />

Playing with peers is essential. Join<br />

your school band, local orchestra,<br />

a private youth symphony, or the<br />

Sacramento Flute Club.<br />

C<br />

ustomarily seeing<br />

cellos in an orchestral<br />

setting, Jennifer Yen has<br />

had the esteem of<br />

performing Tchaikovsky’s<br />

Symphony No. 5 at<br />

Sheldonian Theatre in<br />

Oxford, as well as<br />

Beethoven’s 6th Symphony<br />

“Pastoral” at Carnegie Hall.<br />

However, Yen has also<br />

joined rock bands on stage,<br />

bringing depth to their pop<br />

melodies. “The cello can<br />

produce a wide range of<br />

rich sounds…you can play<br />

it lyrically and<br />

symphonically.”<br />

When did you begin<br />

playing?<br />

I started my first private<br />

lesson when I was four and<br />

a half years old. I come<br />

from a musical family—<br />

my mom is a classical<br />

pianist, my dad is a<br />

retired violinist, and my<br />

sister an accomplished<br />

cellist. Growing up, we<br />

played music together<br />

and performed at<br />

local churches and<br />

community centers.<br />

What performance<br />

are you most excited<br />

about this year?<br />

Alon Goldstein’s Rite<br />

of Spring performance<br />

on April 22 at the<br />

Harris Center. This<br />

will be his second<br />

time collaborating<br />

with [the Folsom Lake<br />

Symphony].<br />

Jennifer Yen<br />

INSTRUMENT: Cello<br />

Greg Lamy<br />

INSTRUMENT: Trombone<br />

S<br />

tarting with the piano<br />

and trumpet in third<br />

grade, Greg Lamy later found<br />

his zeal for the trombone in<br />

high school, where he was<br />

one of two musicians from<br />

California selected as a<br />

member of the McDonald’s<br />

All-American High School<br />

Band. “There’s a thrill<br />

making an inanimate object<br />

‘sing,’ and it’s pretty special<br />

when you get that feeling of<br />

really being locked in on a<br />

piece or a specific section—<br />

especially in an ensemble.”<br />

What attracts you to the<br />

trombone?<br />

I love that it’s a constant<br />

challenge to find the right<br />

partials on the slide and<br />

to make the sound what<br />

I want it to be. Having no<br />

fixed settings (like on the<br />

baritone) ups the difficulty<br />

level significantly, especially<br />

on fast sections. Music is<br />

an interesting combination<br />

of both technical (reading<br />

notes, instrument fingerings,<br />

etc.) and artistic, which can<br />

conflict with each other at<br />

times.<br />

You’re a member of the<br />

Folsom Lake Symphony.<br />

What do you like most about<br />

performing with them?<br />

It’s a perfect opportunity to<br />

continue to play, learn, and be<br />

a part of something special.<br />

While most of the members<br />

are still active with musical<br />

careers (teaching, performing,<br />

etc.) those of us who love to<br />

play but have chosen different<br />

paths can still participate.<br />

Before I joined, I hadn't really<br />

played my instrument for<br />

about 20 years and really<br />

missed what had been such<br />

a big part of my life. With<br />

the symphony, it’s up to<br />

me to be at the level of the<br />

other musicians—a constant<br />

challenge that I’m more than<br />

willing to take on.<br />

In the Mood for<br />

Superfoods<br />

Healthy Diet Essentials<br />


While there’s no universal definition of superfoods, typically they’re<br />

nutrient-dense foods that nourish our bodies, protect our cells, and<br />

prevent us from getting sick. According to Michele Lites, RD, CSO, at<br />

Kaiser Permanente Roseville Radiation/Oncology Department, “the<br />

easiest way to pick a superfood is by the color. Vibrant hues (orange,<br />

purple, green, deep red, etc.) indicate the fruit or vegetable is rich in<br />

nutrients. While most superfoods are available year-round, shopping<br />

when they’re in season will offer the maximum flavor and nutritional<br />

benefit.” In addition to a well-balanced diet, eating superfoods on a<br />

regular basis can help shield against heart disease, cancer, and many<br />

other chronic medical conditions, [along with] strengthening the<br />

immune system and decreasing inflammation, says Zachary Brewer,<br />

MD, a cardiologist with Dignity Health Mercy Medical Group. Here are<br />

13 healthy diet must-haves to add to your shopping cart.<br />


“[Root] vegetables—like carrots, beets,<br />

turnips, rutabagas, and parsnips—are<br />

full of vitamins and minerals and can<br />

be the star of many dishes,” Lites says.<br />

“Let your air fryer create colorful,<br />

tasty fries; or roast [root veggies] with<br />

extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and<br />

freshly ground pepper (and make<br />

extra to purée and use as the base for<br />

hearty soups).”<br />


“Winter squash should be a staple on<br />

your table, because they’re versatile<br />

when making soups, smoothies,<br />

side dishes, and on-the-go snacks,”<br />

Lites says. “They also make great<br />

decorations because they don’t<br />

require refrigeration and can adorn<br />

a table or porch before they’re eaten.<br />

Pumpkin, acorn, butternut, Hubbard,<br />

and Delicata are just a few of the<br />

winter squash varieties that can be<br />

made into sweet or savory dishes.<br />

All contain a plethora of nutrients,<br />

including vitamins A and C, fiber,<br />

and potassium. Try adding squash to<br />

curries or stews for a unique flavor<br />

and as a potato stand-in.”<br />

“Lentils are a plentiful source of iron and<br />

folate and contain ample amounts of<br />

protein, fiber, and magnesium. Because<br />

of their high protein content, they’re a<br />

great replacement for animal proteins. To<br />

prepare them, make a one-pot lentil soup<br />

with olive oil, garlic, onions, and turmeric<br />

(plus broth and other seasonings); and<br />

serve it with rice or your choice of bread<br />

for dipping,” Dr. Brewer says.<br />


“Field greens (collard, mustard, and/or<br />

turnip greens) are abundant in winter<br />

gardens, offer robust flavor, and can<br />

become a hearty main dish. “Try blanched<br />

greens as an appetizer or as a sturdy wrap<br />

(similar to grape leaves used in Greek<br />

dolmas); and don’t miss out on the savory,<br />

nutrient-rich broth (pot liquor) made<br />

when the greens are boiled,” Lites says.<br />


“Like most high-performing greens,<br />

broccoli is rich in carotenoids, which<br />

help your body rid itself of harmful<br />

compounds. It’s also the only<br />

green veggie with a high level<br />

of sulforaphane, which flushes<br />

cancer-causing chemicals from<br />

the body, making it a champion<br />

among superfoods. Other<br />

benefits? Increased heart health,<br />

possible increases in cognitive<br />

functioning, reduction in tumor<br />

growth, and improved digestion,” says<br />

Pamela Connor, functional medicine<br />

nutritionist at Connor Wellness Clinic.<br />

Kathryn MacLean, MS, RD, in Health<br />

Food and Nutrition Services at UC Davis,<br />

suggests adding broccoli sprouts “to salads,<br />

sandwiches, wraps, stir-fries, and grain<br />

bowls; using them as a garnish on things<br />

like avocado toast; or putting a handful into<br />

smoothies with, or instead of, other greens.”<br />

KALE<br />

“Kale is high in vitamins A and C, iron,<br />

quercetin, and kaempferol, but low in<br />

calories. Looking for an easy way to<br />

prepare this superfood? Make chips!<br />

Drizzle the kale with olive oil, add a<br />

sprinkling of salt, and bake until it’s [crispy]<br />

for a delicious snack,” Dr. Brewer says.<br />

KIMCHI<br />

“Kimchi contains probiotics—healthy<br />

bacteria that’s present in the gut. And<br />

gut health is important to overall health,<br />

since over 70% of immune cells reside<br />

there, meaning the health of your gut can<br />

be directly tied to how well you fight off<br />

infection. Kimchi can be added to eggs<br />

or put on salads or sandwiches for extra<br />

spice and crunch!” says Whitney Parkinson,<br />

MPH, RDN, at Marshall Medical Center’s<br />

Diabetes and Nutrition Education Clinic.<br />


“Green tea is another favorite superfood<br />

of mine,” Parkinson says. “It contains<br />

flavonoids, which act as antioxidants in<br />

the body and can fight cancer and lower<br />

inflammation. I love having a hot cup of<br />

green tea or a matcha latte on a cold day.<br />

Beware of added sugar in matcha lattes,<br />

however, and always ask for the no sugar<br />

or half-sweet options.”<br />

GARLIC<br />

“With an abundance of bioactive<br />

compounds that have a variety<br />

of benefits, garlic is antibacterial,<br />

antiviral, and antifungal. It’s also<br />

been shown to be anti-inflammatory,<br />

immune modulating, and<br />

neuroprotective. What’s more, it can<br />

protect against cancer, lower blood<br />

pressure and cholesterol, and aid in<br />

better blood sugar regulation. It’s also<br />

rich in prebiotic fiber, which supports a<br />

healthy gut microbiota,” MacLean says.<br />

“After chopping, mincing, or crushing it,<br />

let the garlic sit for 10 minutes to allow<br />

some of its beneficial compounds to<br />

become more heat-stable. Use it to add<br />

flavor and nutritional benefit to soups,<br />

sauces, stir-fries, and other savory<br />

dishes; or incorporate raw garlic into<br />

homemade salad dressings, marinades,<br />

pesto, hummus, and other dips.”<br />

GINGER<br />

“Ginger is one of my favorite<br />

superfoods and is often overlooked. It<br />

supports our immune system, which is<br />

imperative during cold and flu season,<br />

and aids in digestion,” Parkinson says.<br />

“I love adding raw ginger to smoothies<br />

or teas, but you can also use it as a<br />

seasoning for meats like chicken or<br />

duck.”<br />


“Besides bringing a vibrant color to<br />

curries and other dishes, turmeric<br />

has been linked to numerous health<br />

benefits, thanks to its active ingredient<br />

of curcumin, which studies suggest<br />

can help fight inflammation, stabilize<br />

blood sugar levels, and prevent cancer<br />

cell growth,” Connor says. “Be sure to<br />

pair turmeric with black pepper, as it’s<br />

been shown to enhance curcumin<br />

absorption by up to 2,000%.”<br />


“Chia seeds are rich in fiber (four<br />

grams per tablespoon), which<br />

helps you feel full, keeps you<br />

regular, assists with keeping<br />

cholesterol in check, and can help<br />

prevent large blood sugar spikes<br />

after meals. They’re also a<br />

good source of omega-3 fatty<br />

acids, which are beneficial<br />

for cardiovascular health and<br />

have an anti-inflammatory<br />

effect in the body. In addition,<br />

they’re rich in a variety of<br />

antioxidants,” MacLean says.<br />

She recommends adding a couple<br />

tablespoons to a smoothie, oatmeal, or<br />

yogurt bowl. Another option? “Mix one<br />

tablespoon of chia seeds with three<br />

tablespoons of water and let it sit for 10<br />

minutes to make a ‘chia egg,’ which you<br />

can use to substitute for all or some of<br />

the eggs in baked goods.”<br />

WATER<br />

“Water is usually not considered by<br />

most as a food; however, it is critical to<br />

survival. The FDA classifies a ‘food’ as<br />

an essential part of one’s diet that we<br />

cannot live without,” says Tracy Toms,<br />

RD, and certified diabetes educator<br />

at Dignity Health Heart and Vascular<br />

Institute of Greater Sacramento. “Bottom<br />

line: Make sure to consume adequate<br />

amounts of water instead of juice, soda,<br />

and sweetened beverages.”<br />

3.6-mile loop.<br />


Easy.<br />


Avoid parking on the UC Davis<br />

campus; instead, avail of the<br />

free, 90-minute parking along<br />

1st Street or other free parking<br />

lots nearby. On weekends,<br />

parking is free at the Garrod<br />

Drive lot on the west end of<br />

the trail. Many people run and<br />

cycle the loop, so expect to<br />

share the trail—or break out<br />

your running shoes or bike<br />

and join them! Dress in layers,<br />

bring water and binoculars,<br />

and Leave No Trace.<br />


When the temps are low<br />

with lots of snow eastward,<br />

a beautiful urban hike with<br />

plenty of flora and fauna is a<br />

great way for the whole family<br />

to soak up some vitamin D.<br />

FUEL UP:<br />

Hit up one of several food<br />

vendors or trucks at the<br />

Davis Farmers’ Market<br />

(davisfarmersmarket.org)<br />

on Saturdays (year-round,<br />

rain or shine, from 8 a.m.-1<br />

p.m.) and Wednesdays (3-6<br />

p.m. through March; 3-7<br />

p.m. beginning in April). One<br />

of our favorite purveyors?<br />

Kathmandu Kitchen—a<br />

cornerstone in the community<br />

known for their modern<br />

interpretation of classic Indian<br />

cuisine and insistence on using<br />

high-quality, fresh ingredients.<br />

How seriously you take<br />

birding is up to you but<br />

paying attention to the ones<br />

around you will deepen<br />

your experience outdoors,<br />

relieve anxieties, and is<br />

a fun game (how many<br />

sightings can you count?).<br />

Here are some tips.<br />

1<br />

Use shape to identify<br />

family. While there are<br />

many species of birds,<br />

identifying its general<br />

shape will help you<br />

put it into a family of<br />

species; for example:<br />

accipitridae (hawks,<br />

eagles, and kites) or<br />

anseriformes (ducks,<br />

geese, and waterfowl).<br />

2<br />

Check behavior. Is<br />

it scurrying up a<br />

tree, hopping on the<br />

ground, or circling<br />

overhead? These<br />

behaviors will help you<br />

identify.<br />

3<br />

Season. Some birds<br />

look so similar that the<br />

only way to identify<br />

them is by knowing<br />

which ones appear<br />

during which season.<br />

Local guidebooks<br />

will give you this<br />

information.<br />

4<br />

Field marks. Once<br />

you’ve checked<br />

the general boxes,<br />

noticing specific<br />

markings on the bird<br />

—maybe a white<br />

circle around the eye<br />

or a striped pattern on<br />

its tail—will help.<br />

Do<br />

you have a<br />

favorite trail in the<br />

region you’d like to see<br />

featured? Tell us all<br />

about it at<br />

508 Gibson Dr., Ste 290 // Roseville<br />

916-781-4300<br />

bogardhealth.com<br />

Dr. Bogard has a long history in the health<br />

field. From an RN to a nurse anesthetist<br />

to an anesthesiologist, she spent almost<br />

40 years in the operating room. She was<br />

exposed to critical care, trauma, obstetrics, lots of on<br />

call hours and sleepless nights. As she entered her 50's<br />

she found her own health starting to decline and sought<br />

out a healthy aging physician. After experiencing the<br />

benefits she sought out the fellowship of regenerative<br />

and healthy aging through the American Academy of<br />

Anti-Aging Medicine.<br />

She opened an office in 2014 and continues to grow<br />

and expand her knowledge into this evolving field of<br />

medicine. Rather than prescribing medications and<br />

bandaging diseases she looks for the "root causes" and<br />

integrates each system in the body together. She also<br />

looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors<br />

which result in "dis-ease". Her continued and expanding<br />

practice utilizes bioidentical hormone replacement,<br />

thyroid and adrenal optimization, GI healing, testing for<br />

heavy metals and IV nutrition and chelation, advanced<br />

lipid testing, and advanced blood sugar testing.<br />

Bon Voyage<br />

Must-Have Travel Gear<br />


I’ve travelled enough in my lifetime<br />

to circle the planet more than 100<br />

times. Something I became keenly<br />

aware of early on was the importance<br />

of great carry-on luggage, as well as<br />

other items that make travel easier.<br />

Keep in mind this is coming from a<br />

“man’s” perspective, but these items<br />

crossover to the feminine side quite<br />

smoothly. Here are my must-haves.<br />

Carry-On Luggage<br />

Without a doubt,<br />

the Tumi Alpha<br />

Continental<br />

Expandable<br />

4-Wheeled Carry-On<br />

is the Rolex of luggage.<br />

I can travel for three<br />

to seven days with this bag, and bring slacks,<br />

a jacket, jeans, shoes, toiletries, socks, and<br />

undergarments—well, pretty much everything.<br />

It’s perfectly compartmentalized and will last<br />

forever, thanks to a great warranty and local<br />

direct dealers for support. IMO, it’s “the” bag to<br />

have, and worth every penny. $925, tumi.com<br />

Toiletry Bag<br />

The Eagle Creek<br />

Pack-It Reveal<br />

Hanging Toiletry Kit<br />

is my favorite. I’ve been<br />

carrying one of their<br />

older versions for more<br />

than 25 years, and it’s<br />

all I need, whether it’s an overnight or two-week<br />

trip. It has a place for everything, is durable, and<br />

a pleasure to use. $30, eaglecreek.com<br />

Jeans That Fit<br />

Just Right<br />

I can’t tell you how many<br />

meetings I’ve attended<br />

wearing black jeans<br />

(jet black, of course),<br />

a collared shirt, sports<br />

jacket, and loafers. They're<br />

not for every meeting, but work for many. The key<br />

for me is having the right “jeans,” and the ones<br />

from Danish-based company Perfect Jeans are my<br />

absolute favorite. I had no idea “stretch” jeans would<br />

look and feel so great. You ladies have been holding<br />

out on us! If you're looking for the perfect allaround<br />

pair of travel pants, here they are. And their<br />

marketing is inspiring. $92+, perfectjeans.com<br />

Q: How vital is stretching<br />

before/after a workout and<br />

what can it help with?<br />

A: Dynamic stretching (a<br />

moving stretch) is a great way<br />

to begin a workout; it helps<br />

loosen up muscles and joints<br />

prior to strenuous exercise—<br />

prepping the body for a<br />

warmup. Static stretching at<br />

the end of a workout tells the<br />

body it's time to settle down<br />

and relax. Holding a stretch for<br />

a minimum of 30 seconds helps<br />

improve flexibility, decrease<br />

chances of injury, burn more<br />

calories, and reduce soreness.<br />

If you’re looking for more of<br />

a recovery stretch program,<br />

holding postures for 3-5<br />

minutes (yin yoga) is highly<br />

recommended.<br />

@full_of_chic_boutique @fullofchicboutique<br />

Services or products you offer: Expert bra fitting, in addition to<br />

bras in sizes 30A-46K, post-surgery apparel, sleepwear, lingerie,<br />

and everyday clothing and other specialty items for women.<br />

This month, we’re planning to bring custom and semi-custom<br />

mastectomy and post-surgical bras, prosthetics, and intimates to<br />

the store, too.<br />

What you enjoy most about your profession: We truly value the<br />

opportunity to bring confidence, beauty, and power to women<br />

by providing a much-needed service. A bra that fits is a gamechanger,<br />

which most women don’t realize until they’re wearing<br />

one that fits like it was sewn just for them.<br />

Fun fact about your company: We’re an unconventional motherdaughter<br />

team.<br />

Customer service is: A lost art. In a digitized world, we’re going<br />

back to basics. We want to know the names of the women (and<br />

men) shopping in our store and all about them.<br />

Favorite local restaurants: Main Street Melters and Paco’s<br />

Mexican Cuisine.<br />

Favorite small businesses: We adore Maddy & Coco and The<br />

Market on Main.<br />

When not working, you can be found: Spending time with family<br />

enjoying the outdoors.<br />

You love living here, because: It still has a sweet, slow-paced,<br />

HACKS<br />

Organizing is so much more than pretty baskets and bins. “It’s about<br />

living a life you love to come home to, knowing where all your stuff<br />

is, and lessening the load of what’s no longer serving you,” says<br />

Karlee Alves, owner of 2B Organized Sacramento & 2B Organized<br />

(2b-organized.com). “The key to being organized is to have systems<br />

in place that work for you, your family, and your lifestyle.” If you’re<br />

looking to find peace and happiness in every nook and cranny of<br />

your home—from the garage to your closet—don’t miss these top<br />

tips from area pros.<br />

Know your why.<br />

1<br />

“Why do you want to get organized?<br />

Is it because you want to be able to find the<br />

things you need when you need them? Is it<br />

because you want to live more peacefully?<br />

Is it because you want more time with<br />

your family and less time trying to sift<br />

through clutter and manage stuff? Wanting<br />

a picture-perfect pantry because Instagram<br />

says it will make you happy isn’t enough.<br />

You need a strong why behind your reason<br />

to want to get organized for long-lasting,<br />

sustainable change,” says Alves.<br />

Organizing is a journey, not<br />

2<br />

a destination.<br />

“Similar to health and fitness, habit and<br />

lifestyle changes have to be made for<br />

the changes to stick. You can do all the<br />

things—hire a personal trainer, buy the<br />

Peloton, go on a fad diet—but if you don’t<br />

make overall lifestyle changes your weight<br />

will slowly creep back on. Organizing is<br />

very similar in that maintenance and new<br />

habits need to be made to create lasting<br />

change,” says Alves.<br />

Start with one, small,<br />

3<br />

measurable area.<br />

“Taking on an organizing project can<br />

be very daunting. Many of us put off<br />

projects like this because we believe<br />

we shouldn’t start it if we can’t finish<br />

the whole thing,” says Dawn Cannon,<br />

owner/operator of Finely Organized<br />

(finelyorganized.net). Instead of looking at<br />

the entire room and being overwhelmed<br />

by the task at hand, start with one drawer,<br />

one shelf, or do what is called ‘batching’—<br />

completing one task throughout the<br />

whole area, such as carrying a trash bag<br />

around the room and removing garbage<br />

or putting all the items that don’t belong<br />

into a laundry basket.”<br />

Remove and look at<br />

4<br />

everything.<br />

“Take the time to remove all the items<br />

from a space (closet, cabinet, drawers, or<br />

shelves) so you know exactly what is there,”<br />

says Susan Mann, owner of So Organized<br />

(soorganized.io). “This allows you the<br />

opportunity to purge the items you don’t<br />

need so you can donate, recycle, or dispose<br />

of them; and gives you a chance to look at<br />

the empty space and reorganize it in a way<br />

that is more useful and functional for you.”<br />

Purge and edit.<br />

5<br />

“Letting go of things that no longer<br />

serve you is a crucial first step in any<br />

organizing project,” says Cannon. “Anyone<br />

can shuffle things around and make a<br />

room ‘pretty,’ but what have you really<br />

accomplished? If you think about it, we<br />

bring something new into our homes or<br />

offices nearly every day, whether it’s mail,<br />

groceries, or something we picked up at the<br />

store. If we’re not letting go of things at the<br />

same pace, at some point, it’s inevitable that<br />

we’ll be overwhelmed with clutter.”<br />

6 Contain.<br />

“By giving your belongings a physical<br />

boundary, it helps to keep like things<br />

together with less migration. Document<br />

trays are a great example. How often do you<br />

look at your desk, or the kitchen counter,<br />

and your mail has multiplied into several<br />

different piles from one end to the other?<br />

Having one designated place will save you<br />

time and space when you’re searching for<br />

something,” says Cannon.<br />

Label.<br />

7<br />

“Most of us, in fact 80%, are visual<br />

learners—meaning we rely heavily on<br />

visual cues to process information,” says<br />

Cannon. “By labeling containers, even when<br />

we already know what’s in them, it will help<br />

solidify in our brains where these items are<br />

and where they should be stored after use.<br />

Since very few of us process information<br />

the same way (even if we are visual learners),<br />

labels significantly help when there is more<br />

than one person accessing the items. In a<br />

pantry, for example, everyone in the family<br />

will know where to retrieve and store the<br />

‘chips’ if they’re contained and labeled.”<br />

Organize your food so you<br />

8<br />

see it.<br />

“Put fruits and vegetables in clear<br />

containers or mason jars so you can easily<br />

see what you have. Use a turntable for<br />

condiments so they don’t get stuck behind<br />

other items in the refrigerator. You’re more<br />

likely to eat the food that you can see, which<br />

leads to a lot less waste,” says Kristina Lewis,<br />

owner of Blitz Organization (blitzedh.com).<br />

Sunk-cost fallacy.<br />

9<br />

“The sunk-cost fallacy is the<br />

phenomenon whereby a person is<br />

reluctant to abandon a strategy or course<br />

of action because they have invested<br />

heavily in it, even when it’s clear that<br />

abandonment would be more beneficial,”<br />

says Cannon. “Storing that dresser in the<br />

garage under a pile of who knows what<br />

will not get your money back and serves<br />

you in no way. Remember, ‘cost’ is what you<br />

give up for something, it is not only money.<br />

Storing that dresser is costing you time,<br />

space, energy, and stress.”<br />

10<br />

Edit before you shop.<br />

“I see it all the time: People buy<br />

organizing products thinking it will solve<br />

their problems, when in reality if they<br />

took the time to edit out the things they<br />

no longer need, want, or love, they might<br />

not actually need to buy the countertop<br />

makeup organizer because all the makeup<br />

actually fits neatly inside the drawers once<br />

they’ve pared things down,” says Alves.<br />

Collaborate with your<br />

11<br />

household.<br />

“Think of your entire household and<br />

how they also use the space you want<br />

to reorganize,” says Mann. “Discuss with<br />

them how you envision the area looking<br />

after you reorganize it and ask for their<br />

input, so it works effectively for everyone<br />

and stays organized over time.”<br />

Everything has a place.<br />

12<br />

“Designate a laundry basket for<br />

each child in your home so they can put<br />

backpacks, jackets, toys, schoolwork,<br />

etc. in it, rather than leaving these items<br />

scattered throughout the house,” says<br />

Mann. “At the end of the day, have your<br />

child help with putting these items back<br />

where they belong. It’s a good routine to<br />

teach them to be responsible for their<br />

belongings and alleviate clutter from<br />

building up.”<br />

One in, one out.<br />

13<br />

“Adhere to the ‘one in, one out’ rule.<br />

Bought a new sweater? Great! Get rid of<br />

one of your old ones,” says Alves.<br />

14<br />

Utilize unused space.<br />

“If you need more storage, consider<br />

using shelves and hooks on your walls or<br />

an over-the-door organizer for wrapping<br />

paper, snacks, shoes, supplies, etc. The<br />

possibilities are endless!” says Lewis.<br />

Turn the page on paper.<br />

15<br />

“Create a system for all the<br />

paperwork that comes into your home.<br />

Paperwork can pile up quickly, so it’s<br />

a good idea to only file away what’s<br />

absolutely necessary and toss or shred<br />

the rest,” says Lewis. “Mount a document<br />

organizer on the wall or have a file box<br />

on top of an entryway table, counter, or<br />

placed in a cabinet. Throw out junk mail,<br />

put bills and any other action items into<br />

a folder when you’re ready to tackle them,<br />

and file important paperwork right away.<br />

Whatever system you plan to use, make it<br />

an easy one!”<br />

Do it daily.<br />

16<br />

“Organizing is a daily practice<br />

that needs to be cultivated, reset, and<br />

maintained,” says Lewis. Give yourself time<br />

and space to get started. The joy you’ll feel<br />

once you’re done is indescribable!”<br />

Just keep going.<br />

17<br />

“Rome wasn’t built in a day and<br />

overall sustainable change requires time<br />

and dedication, but knowing where all<br />

your items are and loving everything you<br />

own is such a motivation to not allow<br />

things in that won’t serve you,” says Alves.<br />

“Once you’re at a level of maintaining,<br />

you’ll realize the journey was well worth<br />

it and the path forward is so much easier<br />

because you've put in the work.”<br />

“How do you take your coffee?” Seriously though. Is<br />

there anything better than a good cup of coffee? For<br />

me, it’s the definition of a simple pleasure. My idea of<br />

happiness is a well-made, no-frills latte: two shots of<br />

delicious espresso stained with milk foamed velvety<br />

smooth. But it’s also the coffee shop itself. The aroma<br />

that lives in the very walls. And the sounds! The whooshing steam, the grinding beans, the<br />

clinking of cups and glasses. It’s always the warmest place in wintertime, all steamy and cozy.<br />

Friendly faces of the baristas who sling those beans for you, your comfortable chair, the spot<br />

by the window, the cool music, the baked goods, the artwork on the walls. Voila! A simple cup of<br />

coffee becomes a religion. Café culture! With so many wonderful local spots, we thought we’d<br />

run down the best of the best, perhaps shout out your current favorite, or introduce you to a<br />

new love of your life.<br />

Pause Coffee House<br />

Baked & Brewed<br />

Downtown Loomis is getting a<br />

glow-up thanks to Smithville & Co.!<br />

There’s specialty coffee, like the<br />

iced Mexican mocha that is already<br />

a local favorite, a Bavarian pretzel<br />

charcuterie (swoon!), loaded toasts<br />

and pastries aplenty, plus protein<br />

smoothies. Along with live music, popups,<br />

and the Instagramable décor,<br />

there’s really no reason not to fall in<br />

love with this coffee shop newbie! 3637<br />

Located in Old Town Auburn, The Pour<br />

Choice is a third-wave craft coffee bar<br />

and taproom serving java, craft beers, and<br />

wonderful wines. The coffee is killer (we<br />

recommend the cortado: half espresso, half<br />

velvety smooth milk), the loaded banana<br />

bread is a must (hello, fresh banana and<br />

peanut butter between two slices of banana<br />

bread!), and the three levels of seating with not<br />

one but two patios make it the perfect hang!<br />

Bru Coffee House in Loomis is a coffee shop<br />

with purpose. As part of the nonprofit EveryONE<br />

Matters Ministries (everyonemattersministries.<br />

com), their profits go directly toward helping<br />

those experiencing situational homelessness<br />

in the community. And the coffee is, of course,<br />

excellent. A low-key favorite is the midnight<br />

mocha, a rich tasty drink that’s as dark as a<br />

winter’s night. And make sure to grab a pastry<br />

or a scone, too: They’re baked locally! 3565<br />

the reasons for you to keep coming<br />

back: fresh-baked pastries seven<br />

days a week, delicious coffee, a<br />

rotating array of local artwork on<br />

display, and a pretty patio. Dig into<br />

their extensive breakfast and lunch<br />

menu, and you’ll find so much gold,<br />

like their famous bail out bagel:<br />

eggs and cheese with your choice of<br />

ham, sausage, or bacon on any one<br />

of their delicious bagels (we hear<br />

great things about the jalapeño!).<br />

In addition to the always-great<br />

coffee on offer, we have it on good<br />

authority that their poppyseed<br />

muffin is the one to beat. However,<br />

the quiche gets a lot of raves as<br />

well, so we’re committed to trying<br />

all the baked goods just to make<br />

sure. 2600 Sunset Boulevard, Suite<br />

(peppermint white chocolate<br />

an alarm clock! And their breakfast<br />

(the vegan version is equally delicious,<br />

Top tip for brewing coffee at<br />

home? Invest in a Burr grinder,<br />

use fresh beans, and think<br />

about what water you’re using.<br />

What are you looking for<br />

in a good cup of coffee? For<br />

me, coffee tastes best when it’s<br />

sustainable and the farmers are supported…<br />

essentially a thoroughly balanced cup (with a<br />

nice view)!<br />

Favorite coffee drink? It’s a toss-up between<br />

an oat milk cappuccino and a pour over.<br />

Favorite method for brewing coffee?<br />

Aeropress. It’s super simple, has a huge range<br />

of what it can brew, and is portable.<br />

right!). Minimalism is the key to the Kingdom:<br />

great house-roasted beans, brewed to perfection<br />

and crafted into the pearl latte (among others): a<br />

sweetly cozy combination of espresso, sweetened<br />

condensed milk, and steamed milk that you<br />

won’t soon forget. Plus, there’s great breakfast<br />

sandwiches and avocado toast, delicious pastries<br />

from Estelle’s Bakery & Pâtisserie, and the chillest<br />

good vibes around. 305 Iron Point Road, Folsom,<br />

Sacramento favorite Temple Coffee has<br />

expanded to Folsom—serving up finely crafted<br />

coffees and teas along with house-roasted beans<br />

and locally made pastries. The vibe is thoughtful<br />

and delicious—no bells, no whistles—just good<br />

coffee in cool environs. We’re a fan of the<br />

gibraltar (a delicate balance of espresso and<br />

milk), and if the Samoa donut is on offer, shoot<br />

your shot because you will not be disappointed.<br />

iPhones.) They’ve come a long way baby! The<br />

patio is as spacious as ever, and the tiramisuflavored<br />

latte is still a fan favorite, along with<br />

the innovative breakfast entrées, like their<br />

signature “CR” avocado toast with everything<br />

seasoning and Mike’s Hot Honey on sourdough.<br />

Top tip for brewing coffee<br />

at home? Consistency is key.<br />

If you’re going to change<br />

anything, change one thing at a<br />

time—whether dose, grind setting,<br />

or water temperature—then give it a<br />

try before changing another.<br />

What are you looking for in a good cup of<br />

coffee? I’m always looking for a tasty balance<br />

of sweetness and acidity.<br />

Favorite coffee drink? A cappuccino—full<br />

flavor of espresso with just a few ounces of milk.<br />

Favorite method for brewing coffee? The<br />

Orea—a flat-bottomed brewer with a very<br />

high flow rate that provides lots of flavor<br />

clarity and intensity.<br />

Emily Kane<br />

Barista at World Traveler<br />

Coffee Roasters<br />

Top tip for brewing coffee at<br />

home? Find something that<br />

works for you (it doesn’t have to<br />

be expensive) and be consistent<br />

with your brewing method. Make<br />

small adjustments until you’re able<br />

to dial in what you like; you don’t have to<br />

have top-tier equipment to get a good result!<br />

What are you looking for in a good cup of<br />

coffee? I’m always looking for coffee that’s<br />

well-balanced with sweetness, acidity, and a<br />

pleasant bitterness; I want to be able to detect<br />

clearly defined flavor notes. I personally try to<br />

find the sweetness first and work everything<br />

else around that.<br />

Favorite coffee drink? A cappuccino. The<br />

balance of the small amount of milk and foam<br />

with the espresso never misses.<br />

Favorite method for brewing coffee? Pour<br />

over (I usually use a Chemex). It's simple and<br />

straightforward, and I can fine-tune each brew<br />

to my preference.<br />

Cool Beans<br />

Caffé Santoro<br />

Foxwood Coffee<br />

Love Birds Coffee & Tea<br />

Depoe Bay Coffee Company<br />

Caffé Santoro in Diamond Springs<br />

is keeping the Foothill region warm<br />

and toasty with handcrafted coffee<br />

drinks and breakfast sandwiches<br />

galore. And if you brew at home,<br />

they’ve got the hookup: They roast<br />

their very own coffee beans. On<br />

the beverage front, we love their<br />

Mexican mocha, made with Azteca<br />

D’Oro 1519 spiced ground chocolate<br />

and laced with cocoa liquor, real<br />

vanilla, almond, and cinnamon. If<br />

you’re feeling fancy, try their “Big<br />

S” premium mocha with Ghirardelli<br />

dark chocolate. (Yum!) Food wise,<br />

the choices are vast, but the “bre”<br />

breakfast sandwich is a hot favorite,<br />

with eggs, avocado, tomatoes, cream<br />

cheese, basil pesto, and bacon on<br />

your choice of bagel. And if you’re still<br />

hungry after all that, treat yourself<br />

to a scoop of ice cream; don’t miss<br />

dollar scoop Wednesdays! 93 Pleasant<br />

Valley Road, Diamond Springs, 530-350-<br />

9335, caffesantoro.com<br />

Depoe Bay Coffee Company has<br />

been roasting their own beans in<br />

Downtown Auburn for over 20 years.<br />

Their peanut butter mocha is to die<br />

for (do we really need to explain<br />

why?) and among their many pastries<br />

and sandwiches on offer, the sunrise<br />

bagel is worth waking up for: melty<br />

cheese and scrambled eggs on your<br />

choice of one of their many delicious<br />

bagels, with ham, bacon, or sausage.<br />

893 High Street, Auburn, 530-889-1021,<br />

depoebaycoffee.com<br />

Foxwood Coffee has been holding<br />

it down in Shingle Springs since 2016<br />

with killer coffee and great food. Their<br />

vanilla lavender latte will take the chill<br />

off the Foothill mornings, and with so<br />

much breakfast fare to choose from<br />

you’ll eat good in the neighborhood<br />

for weeks! Our favorite is the Tuscan<br />

sunrise burrito (scrambled eggs, spicy<br />

sausage, feta, hashbrowns, salsa,<br />

spicy aioli, and Southwest chipotle<br />

pesto)—all lightly pressed on the grill<br />

for extra crunch. 4068 Mother Lode Drive,<br />

From their beginnings inside Smith<br />

Flat House to their current Diamond<br />

Springs’ location, Love Birds Coffee<br />

& Tea has been bringing a taste of<br />

Italy to the foothills since 2016. Modeled<br />

on a classic Italian coffee shop, their<br />

baked goods are all made in-house<br />

(never say no to their homemade<br />

biscotti or cannoli), along with the<br />

chocolate sauce, butter caramel,<br />

spiced chai, and flavored syrups. The<br />

breakfast menu is on-point, too: We’re<br />

all about the meat lover’s wrap (eggs,<br />

sausage, bacon, potatoes, spinach,<br />

tomatoes, and green onions), but they<br />

also kettle boil their own bagels, so…<br />

um, good luck choosing between those.<br />

In addition to their spacious courtyard<br />

and huge restaurant, they also have<br />

a convenient drive-thru for folks on<br />

the go. Pronto! 4181 Highway 49, Suite<br />

popular honey bear latte made<br />

with local wildflower honey), and<br />

choose-your-own-adventure<br />

You may be wondering why a Native<br />

American Clay Exfoliation from The Tiger’s<br />

Eye Skincare is different from a traditional<br />

facial? Clay is versatile. It can be used on<br />

almost all skin types. Some of the great minerals<br />

in clay include magnesium, calcium and iron, all of<br />

which help with the production of collagen in the<br />

skin. As skin is exfoliated with clay, impurities from<br />

the skin are surfaced; pores shrink and dead cells<br />

become finer. We offer a variety of traditional Native<br />

American skin care treatments for men, women<br />

and children. Our team of aestheticism and skin<br />

care professionals are licensed to provide facials,<br />

exfoliation and clay masques, to help you to discover<br />

your best self! Tiger's Eye Skincare specializes in<br />

treating skin disorders such as rosacea, psoriasis,<br />

acne, eczema and is especially effective in treating<br />

conditions due to chemotherapy and radiation.<br />

Customer Testimonial:<br />

I was diagnosed with Anal Cancer and aggressive<br />

radiation. I tried everything to relieve, pain,<br />

burns, and blisters. After the first treatment<br />

immediately felt relief. My burns and blistering<br />

have completely healed. I would highly<br />

recommend anyone going through radiation<br />

look into this clay treatment from the first day you<br />

start. —Lorena<br />

Sometimes all you want<br />

is a tasty meal without<br />

up, making reservations,<br />

Enter Umami Ramen. Merging<br />

two quintessential Japanese staples—<br />

technology and simplicity—Umami<br />

blends modern dining and traditional<br />

Japanese flavors in a refreshingly<br />

casual setting.<br />

The menu is delectably small<br />

with a few choices to satisfy all<br />

spectrums of diners. Just walk up<br />

to the touch screen menu (yes, selfserve<br />

style, though a hard copy is<br />

also available), grab a number, pick a<br />

beverage (including beer and sake),<br />

an appetizer, choice of ramen or ricebased<br />

entrée, and a single dessert.<br />

Insert your card and voila! Within<br />

“<br />

Often taking hours to make,<br />

the broth at Umami was<br />

magical: steaming and<br />

fragrant with a rich texture.<br />

”<br />

minutes, your freshly made food will be delivered,<br />

piping hot. If only they had one of those noodleserving<br />

vending machines…<br />

My partner and I started with hot green tea and the<br />

takoyaki appetizer: a deep-fried, ball-shaped Japanese<br />

snack made with flour-based batter and filled with<br />

octopus. The sweet and savory flavors were delicious,<br />

though we felt the takoyaki themselves could have<br />

been a touch hotter. All in all, this Japanese street<br />

food classic, though not a personal favorite, is so<br />

unique I consider it a must-try.<br />

For those new to the ramen scene, it’s the king<br />

of Japanese soups. There are restaurants in Japan<br />

that focus solely on single styles of ramen, and the<br />

masters spend years (if not a lifetime) perfecting its<br />

art; there was even a documentary made about it<br />

(Ramen Heads).<br />

My favorite is typically tonkotsu, which features<br />

pork bone broth. On this visit, we tried two versions<br />

of it: spicy tonkotsu and black garlic tonkotsu.<br />

Often taking hours to make, the broth at Umami<br />

was magical: steaming and fragrant with a rich<br />

texture. Take that amazingness and add thin noodles<br />

topped with roasted pork chashu (a slow-braised<br />

and meltingly tender pork belly), black mushrooms,<br />

seasoned egg, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, and<br />

green onions.<br />

Allow me to elaborate. The egg was amazing, and<br />

I rarely marvel at eggs. Medium-boiled, the whites<br />

were fully cooked but the yolk just barely set. It<br />

was then seasoned, making it flavorful, creamy, and<br />

delicate. The pork belly was fall-apart tender and had<br />

the perfect touch of sweetness. The spicy broth was<br />

just that, so be forewarned; the black garlic broth<br />

was velvety with subtle notes coming through from<br />

the black garlic oil that made me come back for<br />

more—and more—and will probably<br />

be my new go-to here.<br />

Finally, they offer a single<br />

scoop of green tea ice cream<br />

for dessert, which we decided<br />

to pack up and enjoy curled<br />

up fireside at home—the<br />

perfect ending to a simple,<br />

comfort-food filled night.<br />

We’re all aware of the area’s Gold Rush history, but did you know<br />

that the miners searching for gold brought along a treasure of their<br />

own? Pasty pies! Pasty Pies of the World (part of Enchanted Forest<br />

Dining Experience) serves up the delicious hand pies that are each filled with<br />

worldly flavors. My partner and I stopped into the cozy locale and decided to<br />

take a quick trip to Europe with a France and Italy pasty to go. We patiently<br />

waited while our pies heated up, but you can always order them pre-cooked<br />

and bake them at your convenience. When we got home, we topped them<br />

with the accompanying sauces: balsamic reduction for France and pesto for<br />

Italy. The France pasty pie featured cubed black forest ham, gooey Brie, and<br />

fresh rosemary. Italy was filled with Italian ground beef, marinara, provolone<br />

cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil. Both pies were perfectly packed<br />

in a crispy, golden brown pocket featuring a thick braided crust. Rumor has<br />

it that the braid acted as a handle for the miners’ dirty hands so they could<br />

toss it without worrying about ingesting any unwanted germs. Luckily, we<br />

got to enjoy the crispy crust but were both too selfish to share. I suppose<br />

that just means we’ll have to go back and take another trip around the<br />

world to give the other flavors a go. Where will we end up? Japan? Ireland?<br />

Any location is guaranteed piping hot and packed with flavor!<br />

LIST<br />

THE<br />

Top-Notch<br />

Nachos<br />


Nachos are one of the most crowd-pleasing cuisines. Perfect<br />

for sharing, and as an appetizer or a complete meal, they pair<br />

best with football, friends, and a cold beer. From the classics<br />

done right (fried chips and melty cheese) to more creative<br />

preparations (smoked brisket and charro beans! ahi and<br />

avocado!), they’re fun to eat and hard to hate. If you don’t feel<br />

like making them at home, level up with this local roundup of<br />

the most popular plates found ’round town.<br />

On Dos Coyotes' opening day in <strong>January</strong> of 1991, their Santa Fe<br />

Nachos were on the menu. They’ve stood the test of time and are<br />

considered one of the café’s most popular items. Everything on them is<br />

made in-house, including the red chipotle sauce that’s got both notes of<br />

honey and spice. A hearty helping of jack and cheddar cheese top blue<br />

corn tortilla chips, while whole black beans, sour cream, and guacamole<br />

complete the masterpiece. If you want to pump up the protein, pulled<br />

pork, chicken, or steak can be added as well.<br />

If you can’t decide between potato chips<br />

or nachos—or if you simply adore potatoes<br />

with cheese—head to Placerville Public<br />

House for their Pub Nachos. A plethora<br />

of the toppings are made in-house, including<br />

the fresh beer cheese sauce that's crafted<br />

daily. Green onions and a black bean corn<br />

salsa add some freshness while shredded<br />

carnitas bring a hearty balance. Topped with<br />

spicy habanero sour cream, you get a hot yet<br />

refreshing blast of flavor with each bite.<br />

which is from Creekstone Farms and slow-smoked<br />

to perfection. The smoky meat is cubed and blends<br />

nicely with cheese sauce, which is house-made<br />

origins) brings a little kick and spice. You’ll also find<br />

delicious bites of onions, jalapeños, bacon, crema,<br />

and guacamole.<br />

The Spicy Poke Nachos from Goose Port<br />

Public House are the perfect shareable while<br />

watching the big game on one of their flat screens<br />

or listening to live music. Diners can expect<br />

sashimi-grade tuna atop crispy wonton chips<br />

with some tasty toppings to boot (spicy serrano<br />

peppers, sweet chunks of pineapple, and green<br />

onions). The grand finale? Creamy sriracha aioli and<br />

sesame teriyaki sauce. And if you love tuna, it’ll only<br />

cost you a few bucks more for an extra helping.<br />

If you’re a sushi fan, then the Ahi Tuna<br />

Nachos from Sienna were made<br />

for you. Traditional tortilla chips are<br />

replaced with crispy wonton chips (so<br />

you’re still getting a good crunch) and<br />

topped with sushi-grade ahi tuna, red<br />

tomatoes, chunks of avocado, and a<br />

sprinkling of cilantro. In lieu of cheese,<br />

the dish is topped with sriracha mayo<br />

for some creamy heat, accompanied<br />

by a soy ginger glaze for a dash of<br />

sweetness.<br />

will love the Nachos Supreme from<br />

Auburn’s Nectar Café, whose mission<br />

is “to help you and the planet thrive by<br />

providing delicious, local, organic, healthy<br />

food.” House-made cashew cheese meets<br />

a bed of corn tortilla chips before cilantro,<br />

black olives, jalapeños, guacamole, and<br />

vegan chorizo are piled on. A cilantro-lime<br />

crema, also made with cashews, finishes<br />

things off. Bonus: They can be made with<br />

regular dairy cheese instead of the cashew<br />

cheese, too!<br />

Where We<br />

Live<br />

5 STEPS<br />


YEAR YET<br />

1 » Regulate your nervous<br />

system. When you feel<br />

triggered, learn how to<br />

slow down, focus on your<br />

breath (exhale longer than<br />

you inhale), and feel the<br />

sensations in your body.<br />

Having a regular yoga<br />

practice is a great way to<br />

strengthen this skill.<br />

2 » Develop a healthy<br />

attachment style. Your<br />

attachment style is how<br />

you connect in relationships.<br />

Those with a positive<br />

attachment style can<br />

control their reactions,<br />

are emotionally available,<br />

able to express healthy<br />

boundaries, and face conflict<br />

directly and confidently;<br />

they’re dependable, trust<br />

themselves and others, are<br />

comfortable talking about<br />

their feelings and having<br />

difficult conversations, and<br />

committed to growing and<br />

staying curious.<br />

3 » Have more hard<br />

conversations. Learn how<br />

to express your needs and<br />

understand the needs of<br />

others; this is one of the most<br />

crucial life skills to have.<br />

4 » Set boundaries and<br />

stick to them. Communicate<br />

your wants and needs; don’t<br />

assume others know what<br />

they are.<br />

5 » Learn something<br />

new. This is one of the best<br />

things you can do to build<br />

confidence.<br />

“The body benefits from<br />

movement, and the mind<br />

benefits from stillness.”<br />
