Issue 02 | June 2016

Rachel Kieffer, a.k.a. the Health Nut Girl, graces the cover of the June issue of Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine and featured in our Making A Difference series. This month Reba Linker shares a warm mug of tea with us, Kat Tozier offers creative ways to be productive and the healing power of yoga, Natasha Botkin and Lore Raymond share childhood memories, and social media is on the grill. We have lots of wonderful recipes to share this month, including Tae Lynne’s Grilled Romaine.

Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine was published as a digital magazine from May 2016 to the May/June 2018 issue. The program used to display the publication on the internet was used to design the layout. In converting the digital editions to .pdf format, some of the layout elements were altered and misaligned.
