Karma and Life Lessons
Karma is most often described as the law of moral causation, but what if karma is actually part of a benevolent system designed to help humans move into spiritual evolution? Sound controversial? Yes, but perhaps there is still more for us to understand about the things we think we know.

Recipe
Granola with Wheat Germ, Seeds and Blackstrap Molasses
Category: Breakfast
Description: The advantage of making your own healthy homemade granola is that you can avoid some of the hydrogenated fats and corn syrup found in many of the commercial brands. Granola made this way is also a heart-healthy snack food because of the relatively low fat content and the vitamins and minerals supplied by the grains, seeds, nuts and fruits. Oats and other grains are rich in magnesium and other minerals and vitamins which help keep cholesterol low. This recipe I like because of the blackstrap molasses. Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of iron. Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with blackstrap molasses is a good idea--especially because, in comparison to red meat, a well known source of iron, blackstrap molasses provides more iron for less calories and is totally fat-free. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism.
So, granola can be a quite healthy as part of a diet rich in natural grains and vegetables - and as a welcome treat for when you are working or playing extra hard.
