Chilled Thai Melon ~ Raw Soup

Description:
Following is an example of eating a chilled raw soup, which will actually create some substantial heat inside your body…made possible by the addition of hot chile sauces. Honeydew melons have similar nutritional benefits of summer and winter squash. Honeydew melons are low in calories and high in their water content. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C and are also a very good source of potassium, copper, and B vitamins (including thiamine, niacin, B6, and pantothenic acid). Due to their high water content and combination with potassium, honeydew melons are helpful in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. They also provide several key nutrients that are particularly beneficial for healthy skin.


Country Comfort Muffins

Description:
This recipe is packed with raw seeds with just enough of a sweet balance that your family will love them! This Halloween, don't forget to save those pumpkin seeds after you scoop them out. Pumpkin seeds are not only delicious but also provide many health benefits. Such as: Prostate Protection, They promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate. Also beneifical for Improved Bladder Function, Depression Treatment, Prevention of Osteoporosis, Natural Anti-Inflammatory, Prevention of Kidney Stones,Treatment of Parasites, Great Source of Magnesium. Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol. The same phytosterols that lower cholesterol also protect against many cancers.


Low Salt Tacos

Description:
Most of your sodium will be in the cheese and hamburger... but if you take care not to add too much cheese... you can eat 2 or 3 tacos... and still be under your 300 to 400 mg sodium per meal.

QUESTION:

I know that only a certain amount of your calories should come from fat, but how do you calculate that percentage? and what is the difference from good fats and bad fats?
- Amy, Vancouver

ANSWER:

It is recommended that we get about 25% to 35% of our total calories each day from fat — and most of that fat should be monounsaturated or polyunsaturated.

Saturated fat and trans fat can raise cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease, so they should make up less than 10% of a person's daily total calories.

Individual foods may contain more or less fat, but it's easier to control total fat intake if you're aware of the fat content of the foods you eat. To get this percentage, divide calories from fat by total calories (this information appears on the food label) and then multiply by 100. For example, if a 300-calorie food has 60 calories from fat, you divide 60 by 300 and then multiply by 100. That food has 20% of its calories from fat.

For more information on the benefits of 'Good Fats' check out this month's article by Dr. Melissa Bradwell.

Chapter 5: Be Serious About Play!

Leisure

Following the theme of lightening up, being serious about play - taking time to be silly, and engaging in fun of all sorts seems an obvious next step towards happiness. Rubin's message about engaging in what is fun for you - not what you think you should find fun - resonated with me deeply, as an expressive introvert myself, forcing myself to socialize in activities that most extraverts would perceive as run of the mill leaves me exhausted, and certainly does not lead to more happiness.

I'm all for trying new things, and I am very grateful for a loving partner who doesn't force me into fun "for my own good", and I don't expect him to enjoy sitting in a coffee shop for hours connecting over a favourite coffee, the funny thing is, the more we invite each other without strings, the more both of us are inclined to try things we normally wouldn't try, and low and behold, there is often an element of fun in the mix for both of us!

Rubin goes on to describe three categories of fun; challenging fun, accommodating fun, and relaxing fun. The first two categories deliver the best return on investment in terms of providing an atmosphere of growth - but it requires more effort than the relaxing kind...yet all things in moderation, relaxing fun is a great way to unwind from the stressors of the day, as long as there aren't guilt strings attached. I think awareness of how we do fun, as opposed to being on auto-pilot, is a step towards balance and an overall outcome of happiness, after all - happiness, or feeling good is the goal here, so forced fun while we are in resistance to what we are doing is hardly going to have the desired outcome!

This week's challenge...to be conscious about enjoying fun - choosing how I do fun, more than what I do for fun! Honouring what I find fun, and being willing to ask others along for the ride, or being willing to go it alone - Are you in?

~ Lyndsay
Event Review

OK in Health Members Review Panel offer their thoughts about a range of events from specialty movies to concerts, workshops, keynote speakers, health fairs, festivals and community events.
We sponsor community events that have value for our members.


Okanagan Greens Society says Thanks!

Thank you to the Okanagan community for their spirit and support shown at the 6th Annual Organic Okanagan Festival (OOF)! This year’s festival was a great success, with both familiar faces and many new friends collaborating to present what may have been our finest event yet.

With 900 guests joining 72 Okanagan businesses and organizations, the event highlighted green living awareness and raised $1560 in food & funds for the Kelowna Community Food Bank. For the first time the OOF was hosted at the Centre for Learning on the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College, and for the sixth consecutive year at Kelowna’s certified organic vineyard, Summerhill Pyramid Winery.

With the help of GreenStep and the Green Police volunteers we diverted 91% of event waste from the landfill into composting and recycling. Our OOF bus shuttle was very well received with 280 rides utilized between the two venues. 91 cyclists attended the OOF this year and enjoyed free admission and used the Kelowna Area Cycling Coalition bike valet service. Presentation highlights included the fabulous local music, African drumming & dancing, the 3rd annual consignment fashion show and the provocative, standing-room-only keynote address by Lucy Sharratt of CBAN, all in addition to a wonderful new line-up of films and presentations at Okanagan College.

The Okanagan Greens Society extends our warmest thanks to all of you! We were overwhelmed by the dedication of this year’s volunteer team, our amazing supportive sponsors, including the OK In Health eMagazine, the incredible group of exhibitors and by the many sincere thanks expressed by Okanagan community members.

Intro to Exploring a Generations' Adventure of Going Backwards to Move Forward" "Maybe this has been said before. But there is a growing movement. Are we carrying a flag?"

Does Your Pet Need the Needle? by Dr. Moira Drosdovech
Many veterinarians in the last decade have begun questioning whether over-vaccination, while not yet validated scientifically, may be causing a good deal of unnecessary chronic illness in our pets. We should only vaccinate to produce adequate immunity and we should only do so once the pet’s guardian is fully informed of the potential risks associated with this potent medical procedure and the risks associated with not vaccinating at all or vaccinating only occasionally.

The kids are back in school. But for 60 students in Maple Ridge, B.C., school doesn’t mean a stuffy classroom.

Learning the Value of Respect on Haida Gwaii by David Suzuki
I spent a week around July 1 in a cabin on one of Haida Gwaii’s remote islands. I was there to celebrate a birthday – not Canada’s, but my grandson’s second.

October 07, 2011

Tip of the Week:

Astrology is one of many endeavors to understand human nature. Also, there is more than one system one can look to – Tropical (Western) Vedic (Jyotish) Chinese, Mayan and Tibetan and more. Each of these systems can be demonstrated to work and therefore have value for people in their quest to gain perspective for deepened self-awareness, self-empowerment, understanding of and harmony with others and so on. Then there are other systems like Numerology, Enneagram, the 7 Rays, Tarot and many more. In Psychology, there are numerous ‘psychology tests’ that can be and are used to help people gain self-understanding like the Jungian inspired Myers-Briggs…. All of these systems can prove very helpful, as long as they are not used to ‘pigeonhole’ people. While all people share many similarities, paradoxically no two people are exactly alike. Yet, these typology systems can still prove very valuable and they can even be combined to render more angles...
