Smart Shoppers
According to the Food Marketing Institute, only 50% of shoppers are concerned with the nutritional content of the foods they eat. Don't be typical! When shopping, use food labels to compare similar food items. In general look for more fiber, vitamins, and minerals and less saturated and trans fat, sugar, and salt (sodium).

The “Lucky You” Factor
The “lucky you” factor can be explained by understanding synchronicity. Synchronicity and co-creation are part of the systems of benevolent design that are available to all of us. Synchronicity guides you to meet the people you are supposed to meet, and have the situations unfold that you potentially could have. The result is that your life moves faster, and there is more balance because of it.

Recipe
Raw Borscht Salad with Cashews Dressing
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Good ol' Beets. So readily available and oh so good for you! They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and help both build the blood and detoxify it! It combines flavors that you will find very familiar if you've ever had traditional borscht soup. In this recipe you will enjoy celery root, carrot, green onions, beets (of course) and a creamy dressing made from soaked raw cashews, lemon, pepper and dried dill.
Beet roots contain unique phytonutrient pigments. Betacyanin is the red pigment found in red Beets and betaxanthin is the yellow pigment found in yellow Beets. Both of these pigments can provide powerful antioxidant protection. Beet roots are also particularly rich in folate, a B vitamin important for a healthy heart and essential for normal tissue growth. Although they are high on the glycemic index (contain lots of natural sugar and quickly rise our blood sugar levels) they are surprisingly low in calories. And, don’t throw out your beet greens – they are an extremely nutritious vegetable. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which provide powerful antioxidant protection from oxidative damage to cellular structure and DNA. They, like the beet roots are rich in phytonutrients and are even richer in iron than spinach.
