6)    Help Save Lives From Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

During the month of October you may see a lot of pink ribbons as you are out and about and many people will participate in the campaign to help save lives from Breast Cancer.  

Join our Global Marketing Initiative in conjunction with the Know Now Foundation to help save lives through Early Detection.  The statistics are now 1 in every 8 women are being diagnosed.  Every 3 minutes in North America alone. 

"In 95% of the cases, lives can be saved through early detection."

Please be part of the initiative to help save lives. Contact me directly at 604-421-9872 or info@intoyoga.ca to see how you and your friends can help.

You will be rewarded immensely for your efforts.

Cancer has touched my life too often, has it touched yours?  This is an easy way to contribute and multiply our efforts.

This year, give the gift of SAVING LIVES!

My personal goal is to touch the lives of over 1,800 women in the month of October with the help of my family, friends and colleagues.

12)    Recipe

Tofu Carob Pie (1 - 9 inch pie)
from The Allergy Cookbook by Ruth R. Schattuck

I don't eat dairy, and I've been allergic to chocolate since I was a toddler.  So I found this great recipe that taste delicious in this cool book I picked up at a used book store.  I fed it to my family and they thought they were eating real chocolate.  Everyone had seconds!  My kids dubbed it "Poo Pie."  The reasoning will be obvious once you make it.

1 cup carob chips
1/2 cup honey
2 12 ounce soft tofu cakes
1 tablespoon Vanilla
1 Egg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract, or to taste

Directions:
1.  Over low hat, melt carob chips with honey.  Stir to prevent sticking.  Remove from heat. Set aside.
2.  To prepare the tofu, rinse cakes, pat dry, removing all surface moisture.  Whirl in blender until creamy.
3.  Add vanilla, egg, cinnamon, and peppermint extract.

4.  Continue blending while adding the honey-carob mixture.
5.  Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned and filling has a dull appearance.
6.  Let cool completely on a rack before cutting.


13)    Chemicals Health and Pregnancy Study - Volunteers Needed

Newly Pregnant? Interested in learning about the chemicals in your environment?
The UBC Chemicals, Health and Pregnancy (CHirP) study is now recruiting 150 pregnant women from the Greater Vancouver area. The CHirP study is looking at the effect of certain environmental chemicals (flame retardants and stain repellents) on thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy. Participants must be in the first 15 weeks of pregnancy and be planning to deliver at BC Womens’ St Paul ’s or at home. Participants receive a free copy of their personal results (chemical levels measured in their blood and homes). For more information, please visit www.cher.ubc.ca/chirp or contact Glenys Webster at 604-827-5454 or chirp.study@ubc.ca.
