Low Salt Pizza

Description:
Only about 20 mg sodium for the entire pizza dough. This is enough to make 3 medium pizzas. We make one... and freeze the other dough for another time. This Pizza dough can be made in your bread machine. You can add or remove any of the toppings to make your favourite pizza.


Oh So Good Salsa

Description:
This eay to make Salsa is a raw food recipe. Tomato salsa, if prepared using fresh ingredients, has several health benefits. Tomatoes contain large amounts of vitamin C and beta carotene. Because of the fresh ingredients, you can include tomato salsa as one of your suggested four vegetable servings per day. Just 1/4 cup of fresh tomato salsa counts as a single serving.


“Raw” Corn Chips

Description:
Corn nutritionally, it contains folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, protein, potassium, fiber, thiamine, and panthotenic acid. It also has Vitamins A, C, E and K. That's an impressive list of nutrients.

QUESTION:

Hello OK In Health.
My question is about my ears. I often get a ringing or hissing in my ears. Mostly just one ear, that is louder at night. It sometimes keeps me awake.
Betty, Armstrong, BC

ANSWER:

Hello Betty,
Thank you for asking a question to our Q and A section. It sounds like Tinnitus. Your doctor or Naturopath will be able to tell you for sure. In the meantime, I would recommend you read this article by our OK In Health columnist David Dixon as it is very informative.

Chapter 3: Aim Higher

Upon first blush, I admit, I thought to myself..."typically, the higher I aim, the harder I fall when I don't quite meet the mark," however, upon reflection of this chapter in relationship to happiness, I tend to agree that having goals to strive for, serves as a significant source of happiness.

There is a finicky relationship between ambition and happiness; Rubin reasons that the happier one is in their work, the more one will expand themselves, which results in you becoming happier from the expansion, and then a continued desire to grow and try new things. While I consider myself to be among the fortunate who are blessed with the opportunity to do work that I love, I can attest to this theory to some degree, however there have certainly been times when work satisfaction alone was unable to carry the weight of tough times that life sometimes presented, and it was in fact my dissatisfaction that inspired me to grow and expand in different areas (and I'm not just referring to my waist size!).

I think it is important to recognize that it is not the result itself that causes us to experience happiness...if that were the case, there would be no reason to continue to seek growth. We hear say that it is the journey, not the end result that causes the growth and ensuing happiness, so it stands to reason, when in a funk, trying something new while being open to the fun of failure fits the bill. I don't know about you, but I don't relish much in the failures I've had, nor do I recall them being much fun, but I must admit, when asked what caused me to grow the most over the years, I turn to my failures with a hint of gratitude for the life lessons they have provided.

Besides stepping outside of your comfort zone, Rubin addresses the pillars of appreciating the present moment, and accepting support along the way, which has a dual purpose of not only connecting you to others and increasing your likelihood of success, but it provides another the opportunity to experience the joy of lending a hand, fostering happiness in a way not many can resist.

For me, aiming higher tempered with an attitude of gratitude for the ability to experience growth inspires those warm, fuzzy feelings of happiness, yet so does a good morning coffee - not sure where that one fits in yet!

I'm tempted to try out the "fun of failure" this week, so I'll be sure to report back with my findings! Anyone care to join me?

~ Lyndsay

Green Drinks Local Events Review

Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. They have a lively mixture of people from the community. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Just say, "are you green?" and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.
These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good and we'd like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along. http://www.greendrinks.org/Canada/clist

September 9, 2011

Tip of the Week:

This is “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” and humanity is experiencing a mass awakening. Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, symbolizes awakening and illumination. The dawning light is revealing many ‘signs of our times’. We are awakening to the emergence of a global culture. Uranus in Aries (2010-2019) indicates a rapid, pioneering, revolutionary push into the future – ‘the quickening’. Some groups are and have been pushing for a united world for a long time, a “One World Order”, both overtly and covertly. Yet how it is being done does not feel very democratic. Meanwhile, the push for democracy in the world is escalating to confront the encroachments of undemocratic control. But Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2023), the sign of organized power - governmental hidden and otherwise is doing its work: pushing what is hidden to the surface to be re-examined and purified, the toxicity removed. Due to a cross cultural review and re-consideration of our pas...
