Wellness Tip
VEGETARIAN DIETS AND IRON
Are you a vegetarian or mostly a vegetarian? Our registered dietitian recommends consuming plenty of iron-rich plant foods such as lentils, kidney beans, black beans, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruit and whole grains. Iron-enriched products such as cereals and breads are also good sources. To enhance iron absorption, consume vitamin C-rich foods at the same time you eat iron-containing foods. These include strawberries, green peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and citrus fruits. By following these simple guidelines, most non-meat eaters will get enough iron.

Celtic Healings Intuitive Readings with Maria O'Farrell Carr


Article
The Energy of Gaia
There is more to our Planet Earth, Gaia, than meets the eye. Have you ever wondered about Earth energies? What are portals? Why do hauntings occur, and are they related to the energy of Gaia? Gaia’s Earth energies interface with humanity in a surprising and astonishing way. The natural history of our Earth is well published, but could there be a missing piece of this puzzle? Could it be that there is something that explains why we are here and the role of our planet, Gaia? Perhaps Gaia and humanity are bigger than you think?...

Recipe
Cheesy Mushroom and Asparagus Cheese Bake
Category: Side Dishes
Description: Whole-wheat Pasta is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates which provide a slow release of energy. Unlike simple sugars that offer a quick, yet fleeting boost of energy, pasta helps sustain energy.
Pasta is a useful source of protein, is very low in sodium and cholesterol-free. Whole wheat pasta can provide up to 25% of daily fiber requirements in every one cup portion.Pastas are a good source of iron (with about 2mg in a 1-cup serving), potassium, and many are also enriched with thiamine, niacin, and other B vitamins.

Asparagus is an alkaline food which is rich in protein but low in calories and carbohydrates. Although it's available all year round, asparagus usually is most found and best in spring and is harvested when it is about 6 to 8 inches tall. It is an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, vitamins A, C and K, and traces of vitamin B complex. A good source of dietary fiber, asparagus is also rich in niacin, phosphorus and very low sodium. And my favourite health benefit of asparagus and certainly most impressive is that it is one of those few vegetables that actually has the calcium and magnesium in the ideal ratio of 2:1.
