Wellness Tip
Turmeric, More than a Spice
Turmeric is a spice commonly used in foods such as curry powders, mustards and cheeses. New evidence suggests that its active ingredient, curcumin, might prevent or treat some diseases. The National Institutes of Health is recruiting patients for clinical trials to test curcumin against pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma (a form of cancer), Alzheimer's and colorectal cancer. Curcumin is not thought to be toxic but high doses or long-term use may cause indigestion. Stay tuned for future updates.

Archangel Michael's Leyline and Sacred Sites in Ireland
The Saint Michael Leyline is largely intact because of the work of the Druids. This Leyline runs across Ireland for several hundred miles, intersecting with various sacred sites that have been dedicated to Saint Michael. One of the original amplification points of this ley is a 230 metre rock, called Skellig Michael, which stands in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Ireland.

Stuffed Mushroom Caps with Couscous
Category: Side Dishes
Description: Couscous is a mildly nutty-tasting grain that comes from North Africa. It makes a great stuffing, especially for a small cavity like a mushroom, because it's so moist. When the stuffed mushrooms are baked, the full flavor of the couscous and the mushrooms really come through. These will go fast!

Couscous is among the healthiest grain-based products. It has a glycemic load per gram 25% below that of pasta. It has a superior vitamin profile to pasta, containing twice as much riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and folate, and containing four times as much thiamin and pantothenic acid. In terms of protein, couscous has 3.6g for every 100 calories, equivalent to pasta, and well above the 2.6g for every 100 calories of white rice. Furthermore, couscous contains a 1% fat-to-calorie ratio, compared to 3% for white rice, 5% for pasta, and 11.3% for rice pilaf.
In general, mushrooms are low in energy, virtually free of fat, a valuable source of fibre and are cholesterol and carbohydrate-free. Emerging research indicates that certain mushroom extracts, such as beta-glucans, may have a positive effect on the immune system. Medicinal properties have been attributed to mushrooms for thousands of year. Benefit to the immune system may be one of them.
