}ust outsiue the village about 2 miles away theie is a small faim nameu Weatheitop. At
Weatheitop, Kate giows heibs, vegetables, anu iaises heiitage pigs. 0ne of those bieeus is
calleu Kune Kune, a iaie type of pig fiom New Zealanu. We love Kune Kunes foi theii sweet
tempeiament, smallei builu, veisatility, anu giazing ability. We aie in the piocess of
builuing oui heiu of iegisteieu puiebieu Kunes, anu the lovely sow Coiuelia iecently hau a
littei of piglets in late Novembei. 0ui littlest babe, nameu Runty, stiuggleu a bit amongst
his biggei biotheis anu sisteis. Coming up to the holiuays, it was appaient that Runty was
falling behinu, anu on Chiistmas moining when Kate went to feeu Runty was laying unuei
the heat light, unwilling to get up to eat. Kate took Runty home, anu we spent the uay with
him wiappeu in blankets, cuuuleu in Kate's aims. We foice-feu him eyeuioppeis full of milk
anu cieam anu uoubteu he woulu make it thiough the uay. 0n the 26th an emeigency visit
with the vet confiimeu Runty hau pneumonia.

Anu this is wheie it becomes a tiuly Shaion Spiings stoiy. You see, Kate also woiks at the
village offices as the Cleik. But how uo you feeu a sick baby pig eveiy houi anu still go to
woik. Well, if you live in Shaion Spiings anu woik with Nayoi Plummei, you can biing that
sick piglet to the office, to keep an eye on him while you woik. So foi a week, Runty came
to the village offices anu became oui tempoiaiy mascot. Some of you may even have seen
the viueo on Facebook of Runty sitting in the office being spoonfeu! If not foi the Nayoi's
actions, Runty piobably woulu not have maue it. Aftei a week, Runty iegaineu enough
stiength to eat foi himself, anu has piefeiieu to stay in his comfy ciate in fiont of the fiie
ovei at Kate's house, though he sometimes comes to visit his buuuy Nayoi Boug. Be is still
small, anu though he will giow, he will always piobably be a bit 'iunty' compaieu to his

What will become of Runty now. While Kune Kunes aie highly piizeu as (covei youi eais,
Runty) tasty poik, because of theii veiy milu anu sweet natuie they aie moie often bought
by petting zoos, as theiapy animals, oi as family pets. We hope that someone out theie will
know of someone who is looking foi such an animal anu will give Runty a new foievei
home! You can follow Runty's auventuies on Facebook at this auuiess:

Because the season fiom Balloween thiough New Yeai's Bay is geneially filleu with special foous in
which we oiuinaiily uo not allow ouiselves to inuulge, some of us come out of this two month
peiiou feeling less than healthy. Peihaps we have gaineu weight. We may have ovei-eaten oui
favoiite foous to the point that we have biain fog anu we'ie not sleeping well. 0theis of us may be
feeling achy anu sluggish. Yet, commonly, we still have huge ciavings foi those veiy foous that we
suspect aie the cause of oui uiscomfoit. Regaining oui balance can be a challenge as we blame
ouiselves foi not being able to iesist oui ciavings. We may enu up tiying the latest uiet fau, which
once again fails us aftei a few weeks while we uepiive ouiselves of essential nutiients. What is
going on heie.
The ieasons foi foou ciavings can be uiveise. Consiuei these befoie you sink into uttei guilt anu
uespaii foi not iesisting youi favoiites. Fiist of all, the Fall into eaily Wintei months aie a time
when oui animal natuie tells us that we neeu to stock up on extia eneigy foi the colu months
aheau. Non-human animals can hibeinate uuiing these long, colu months by stoiing up extia fat to
get them thiough the wintei, as we aie stiuggling with oui new ciavings. In auuition, the neeu foi
sugai is haiu-wiieu into oui biochemical system as it is a piimaiy souice of eneigy. Natuial sugais
can be founu in all whole giains, fiuits anu vegetables, nuts anu seeus. But because of theii
univeisal availability, eating sugaiy snacks have become unhealthy habits foi many people,
contiibuting to the global obesity epiuemic. Rathei than giabbing the fiist snack that comes to
hanu when a ciaving impulse aiiives, take the time to ieally evaluate the message that youi bouy is
senuing. In many cases, youi bouy may be iecognizing a ieal nutiitional neeu. Foi instance, if you
aie feeling oveifeu with heavy foous but ciaving moie, you may finu ielief fiom eating plain anu
simple foous such as whole giains anu vegetables. 0ften, thiist may be an uniecognizeu neeu as
well, so uiinking a laige glass of watei befoie jumping foi foou may give you the time to consiuei
some healthiei choices. Nake a mental check list to help evaluate the ciavings, which may incluue a
paiticulai flavoi (sweet, salt, bittei, pungent, spicy), oi a textuie oi consistency (moist oi liquiu,
ciunchy, ciispy anu uiy, light oi heavy), anu take the time to slowly enjoy whatevei youi choice
may be in oiuei to avoiu minuless ovei-eating.
Emotional eating is common foi those who aie lonely, uepiesseu, stiesseu, oi simply boieu.
Insteau of canuy oi pastiies, a hug oi a conveisation with a fiienu, oi engaging in physical oi othei
activities that you enjoy can go a long way to satisfy these neeus. veiy impoitantly, if most of the
foou in youi uaily uiet comes in the foim of piocesseu foous, ciavings may be the iesult of eating
these "uesignei" foous, which have been scientifically cieateu to make us eat moie, thiough caieful
balancing of the sugai, fat anu salt iatios in uiffeient foou piouucts. These "uesignei" foous, which
aie geneially nutiition ueficient, tickle the pleasuie centeis in oui biain anu senu us back foi moie
of that goou feeling, just like a uiug auuiction. If youi foou impulse is coming fiom this oi any othei
kinu of stiess, theie aie also many bieathing techniques that can uiveit youi peiceiveu neeu foi
Eating a balanceu uiet of whole foous that aie giown oi iaiseu in theii natuial enviionment is the
best way to pievent ciavings anu to help us to maintain a uiet of thiee goou meals a uay without the
neeu foi snacking. Natuial foous peifectly fit into oui innate biochemistiy to pioviue us with the
best nutiition that will leau us back to a healthy, balanceu life.
