Curried Quinoa Lentil Salad

Description:
This is a great lunch or dinner side dish, full of protein and vegetables. Lentils are loaded with fiber, folate, iron, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, lentils are a nutritional fountain of youth. Researchers who studied the elderly found that eating these earthy-tasting seeds (and other legumes) is the single most important dietary factor in longevity. When it comes to fiber, a mere half cup of lentils provides around a third of your daily requirements. Whether you purchase lentils prepackaged or in bulk, look for those that appear largely unbroken (bags with broken lentils appear "dusty") and when you get home, don't mix newly purchased lentils with older ones; the older they are, the longer they take to cook. Keep them stored in a cool, dry place, and they will stay fresh for several months.


Sandra's Raw Pad Tai

Description:
Raw food is teaming with enzymes. Enzymes are the catalyst for every human function. We are born with a battery of enzymes but as we grow and continue eating the standard North American diet, the enzymes supplied by our body are used up to help run a nutritionally starved body. They need to be replaced. This is where a raw food diet comes into play. The more raw food you eat, the more you charge your enzyme battery and the better you feel. When you put this terrific food into your digestive system it begins to clear your blood and other body fluids of toxins and soon you find that you are filled with energy and vitality and weight concerns become a thing of the past. Here is a dinner idea that you can adapt into many useful raw food dishes


Fall Apples with Caramel and Walnuts

Description:
The proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.", addressing the health effects of the fruit, dates from 19th century Wales. Well here is a way to keep the kids eating this amazing fruits. Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Compared to many other fruits and vegetables, apples contain relatively low amounts of vitamin C, but are a rich source of other antioxidant compounds. The fiber content, while less than in most other fruits, helps regulate bowel movements and may thus reduce the risk of colon cancer.

Mold - What to do if I find mold on my cheese?

If you notice a spot of mold on a brick of hard cheese, such as cheddar, what should you do? To be on the safe side, trim off one inch of cheese under all moldy surfaces. The rest of the brick of cheese is usually okay to eat. If you see mold on a soft cheese, like cream cheese or cottage cheese, don't remove the mold - throw the soft cheese away.

4 Steps to Create Your Life with Conscious Language by OK In Health eMagazine
Conscious language helps you identify your limiting beliefs and turn them around to serve your highest choices. Not only that, but every sound you utter is energy that plays a role in creating your world, also made up of energy. It might sound a little out there, but if you stop and think about the words you find yourself saying a lot of the time, perhaps without conscious thought, do those things show up often in your world? It’s quite likely. It makes sense then that choosing language that is supportive of you and others...
Are You a Lightworker? by Doreen Virtue
I believe that each person has a personal mission in life—something that you agreed to learn during this lifetime. It could be patience, forgiveness, compassion, balance, self-care, integrity, and so forth. Everyone is working on a soul-growth lesson. In addition to their personal missions, some individuals agreed to take on “global missions,” which involve...
Children from Another Lifetime? by Brian Weiss
Sitting in the Green room of the Donahue show many years ago, I witnessed a stunningly surrealistic scene. There was Jenny, a 41-year-old woman from England, sitting with her son, Sonny, age 75, and her daughter, Phyllis, who was 69 years old at the time. Reunited by love, and a past life...
Cold & Flu Busters: The Natural Approach, Part One by Klaus Ferlow
There are many theories as how people get a cold & flu as there are treatments. When our immune systems are compromised it is a challenge to fight these dreadful illnesses.
Have you ever wondered how much impact stress has on our ability to learn? by Beverly Hunter
It has more than you realize! Stress is anything that causes our bodies to change or adapt - good or bad
The Energy of Gaia by Monika Muranyi
There is more to our Planet Earth, Gaia, than meets the eye. Have you ever wondered about Earth energies? What are portals? Why do hauntings occur, and are they related to the energy of Gaia? Gaia’s Earth energies interface with humanity in a surprising and astonishing way. The natural history of our Earth is well published, but could there be a missing piece of this puzzle? Could it be that there is something that explains why we are here and the role of our planet, Gaia? Perhaps Gaia and humanity are bigger than you think?...
The Longing of the Soul by OK In Health's Articles
By Rev. Kimberly Marooney, Ph.D. The call of the soul comes in many different ways. Sometimes it is a dramatic experience of revelation. It can be a deep inner knowing. And, the soul can call to you through feelings, life circumstances, illness, injury, friends, mates, and children. The soul often calls through our most unwanted circumstances in life. As the soul rises to the surface, its purpose is to
The Power of Affirmations by Monika Muranyi
Affirmations are powerful tools that can help change our lives. When you speak affirmations out loud with a conscious intent, you hear it with your ears, and your body understands what you are doing. Statements of intent carry energy and words in the air, have frequencies that your intelligent body consciousness (Innate), will understand. Whatever you tell your body, Innate listens to and will begin to cooperate with. Innate is always listening, and ready for your instructions.
The Power of Empathy by Maggie Reigh
We know in our heart of hearts that we cannot eliminate struggle and emotional strife and yet many of us unconsciously, sometimes desperately, pursue this kind of surreally “perfect” family. It drives us crazy that we can’t fix everything for our kids – and it drives them crazy that we keep trying to!

Horoscope for the week: November 03, 2017

Tip of the Week:

The ghosts and ghouls have had their time in this time of the thinning of the veils and ‘all saints have come and gone as well. Yet, like all good parties, some invariably linger longer and try to spark a new high even though most have returned home. Yet, the peak point for this annual nightmarish festival, which coincides with the mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice, actually occurs this week. In Pagan tradition, it is called Samhain and it coincides with 15 degrees Scorpio in the Tropical Zodiac, which occurs annually on or within a day of November 7th.

Samhain can be compared to the beginning of the last of the main 8 phases of the Moon. Both indicate a period of increasing darkness which inclines people to go within, both literally, as in to stay indoors more and psychologically, which implies turning within to reflect upon the past and begin to prepare for the new solar cycle which begins at the...
