Wellness Tip
Don't Sweat It
Exercisers of all ages are at increased risk for dehydration during these hot summer months. Dehydration can diminish energy, impair performance, and have serious health consequences. Even a 2% loss of body weight through sweat--3 pounds for a 150-pound exerciser--can mean trouble. Maintaining proper hydration is important for all fitness enthusiasts. Weighing yourself, without clothing, just before and after you exercise is one way to measure fluid losses. Each pound lost is equivalent to about 15 ounces of dehydration.

Understanding our Dreams
All of us need sleep to function properly the next day, yet not everyone can claim that they dream. Why? Do we all dream? If so, why do only a few remember them? Why do some recall their dreams and others don’t? What do our dreams mean? While there are many answers to these questions given from a diverse range of experts, there is no common agreement about the true purpose of dreaming. Kryon, an entity channeled by Lee Carroll, helps unravel this puzzle, and gives us a new way of looking at dreams.

Recipe
Traditional squash casserole with Pomegranate Juice
Category: Main Meals
Description: Acorn squash has a green skin speckled with orange patches and pale yellow-orange flesh, this squash has a unique flavor that is a combination of sweet, nutty and peppery.
I like this recipe as it uses many interesteing ingredients such as pomegranate juice, roasted peppers, Chinese five-spice powder and coconut milk aswell as wells as lots of nuts and seeds. In my garden my acorn squash are just about ready to harvest. I often store them and use later in the winter. At the store, squash is easily prone to decay, so it is important to carefully inspect it before purchase. Choose ones that are firm, heavy for their size and have dull, not glossy, rinds. The rind should be hard as soft rinds may indicate that the squash is watery and lacking in flavor. Avoid those with any signs of decay, which manifest as areas that are water-soaked or moldy.
While we've become accustomed to thinking about leafy vegetables as an outstanding source of antioxidants, we've been slower to recognize the outstanding antioxidant benefits provided by other vegetables like winter squash. But we need to catch up with the times! Recent research has made it clear just how important winter squash is worldwide to antioxidant intake, especially so in the case of carotenoid antioxidants. From South America to Africa to India and Asia and even in some parts of the United States, no single food provides a greater percentage of certain carotenoids than winter squash.
The unique carotenoid content of the winter squashes is not their only claim to fame in the antioxidant department, however. There is a very good amount of vitamin C in winter squash (about one-third of the Daily Value in every cup) and a very good amount of the antioxidant mineral manganese as well. Recent research has shown that the cell wall polysaccharides found in winter squash also possess antioxidant properties, as do some of their phenolic phytonutrients.
It's the combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds in winter squash that have shown this food to have clear potential in the area of cancer prevention and cancer treatment.
