Lemon-herb Baked Rainbow Trout

Description:
A lovely delicate baked fish with lemon and french herbs makes a great light dinner or livens up some fresh salad greens. Rainbow Trout are rich in fat and have particular, natural fatty acids - the main component of fat - not found in any other foods. These fatty acids are missing many hydrogen atoms so they are highly polyunsaturated, more so than other polyunsaturated fatty acids in food. Also, they are longer than most other fatty acids. These structural differences give fish oil fatty acids their unique health properties. They are called "omega-3" fatty acids because of the location of the first two missing hydrogens in their chemical structure. The two main omega-3 fatty acids in fish oils are called EPA* and DHA* for short. EPA and DHA occur naturally only in seafood, and are abundant only in fatty fish and marine animals.

Glycemic Index by Brad King
A new meal planning tool called the Glycemic Index is talked about a lot these days. But there is also a lot of misunderstanding about the GI, which has actually been around for more than 20 years.
Guides and Angels by Monika Muranyi
The belief in the existence of guides and Angels has been around for thousands of years. However, what’s new is that we are beginning to have new understandings about these beautiful and sacred helpers. As humanity evolves, it is time to apply spiritual maturity to esoteric teaching. It may come as a surprise, but your guides are actually part of you; and the Angels exist as a multi-dimensional soup of energy around you. Together, guides and Angels are part of a benevolent system to help us ascend and create peace on Earth.

Toothpaste is a mix of chemicals and synthetics meant to clean, polish and maintain healthy teeth and gums. But are those ingredients safe, or even necessary?
The Hurley/Osborn Technique by OK In Health's Articles
The statistics on back pain state that 80% of all adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Anyone who has experienced physical pain, of any kind, knows that it affects not only your body but your quality of life. Some therapies will relieve the discomfort for a time but having a treatment that is gentle, non-invasive and works quickly towards curing not only the pain and discomfort but the structural reason behind the pain may be of interest. For thirty years I have been using...

July 2018

Tip of the Month: Mars retrograde in Aquarius is among the top stories this month. It shares this status with Saturn, Chiron, Neptune, and Pluto. Mars will form a conjunction with the Moon’s South Node on July 20. Mercury turns retrograde on July 27th. Altogether, this reveals a complex and revolutionary summer.

Aries (Mar 21- Apr 19)
You yearn to break free. Yet, doing so costs money. Reconsidering how you generate income is on your mind. Creative thoughts about how you can devise a better strategy are on your mind. How can you use your power to generate more?

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
A busy time is underway as July begins. This is true in your mind as much as in terms of tasks. Positively, a creative cycle is indicated. The focus is largely on the homefront, both inside and out.

Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)
Changes are brewing about which you would like to feel more confident. They are a natural process of ch...
