Meditation - Yoga Nidra at Sunset
Community Center is a
powerful technique in which one learns to consciously relax. The
word nidra is Sanskrit for 'sleep'. A guided meditation
practiced while lying on the floor, an hour of Yoga Nidra
meditation is to the body the equivalent of four hours of
dynamic restful sleep and is an ideal practice for anyone who
would like to feel more connected, improve memory and increase

The Problem with Juicing and
There’s no shortage of diet fads
out there for losing weight quickly. Juicing and
juice fasting is one that has been around for a
while—its premise being to consume fresh-squeezed
juice from fruits and vegetables daily or
exclusively for a day or up to 10 days or more.
However, a recent study in the British Medical
Journal found that people who consumed fruit in
the form of juices (more than three glasses of fruit
juice a week) actually increased their risk of
developing type 2 diabetes by 8 percent, while those
who consumed their fruit whole lowered their risk of
developing type 2 diabetes by 2 percent.
The problem is that the process of juicing
extracts the nutrients and water from a vegetable or
fruit and leaves behind the fibrous pulp. While the
act of squeezing out some of the good stuff in
fruits and vegetables—antioxidants, vitamins,
minerals, etc.—screams healthy elixir, this
processing also removes the nutrient-rich skin along
with healthy fiber and a substantial amount of
vitamins and minerals. There is also one other major
caveat: sugar is squeezed out, too.
Depending on what fruits and vegetables are
chosen to juice, the sugar content can climb pretty
high. Without the fiber to slow down absorption,
drinking the juice can send blood sugar levels
spiking and crashing, leading to feelings of extreme
hunger, irritability, and fatigue.

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding
View Original Recipe
In this recipe, granulated tapioca thickens
chocolate soymilk into a luscious pudding without
the addition of flour or eggs. Granulated tapioca
cooks up smaller and smoother than pearl tapioca, so
the pudding may just win over avowed tapioca pudding
1 qt. chocolate soymilk
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup quick-cooking granulated tapioca,
such as Let’s Do…Organic
2/3 cup gluten-free vegan chocolate chips,
such as Enjoy Life
Bring soymilk and salt to a simmer in
medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in tapioca,
and reduce heat to low. Cook at a low simmer 20 to
25 minutes, or until tapioca is transparent and
pudding begins to thicken. Remove from heat, and
stir in chocolate chips until melted. Cool
completely before serving.
