Are You Getting Enough Vitamin C?

Found naturally in citrus, vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is involved in many body functions. These include the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Because the human body cannot produce vitamin C, people must rely on what they eat to get adequate amounts of the vitamin.

Unfortunately, most people dont meet vitamin C recommendations through diet alone. More than a quarter of people in the US are marginally deficient (not even reaching the RDA amount), and up to 20 percent are severely deficient in some populations. Supplementing diet with a vitamin C supplement such as C-Lyte is an easy and convenient way to ensure people are getting enough of the essential vitamin.

 Yoga 101: History, Popular Styles and Health Benefits
by Lisa Richards

When it comes to fully understanding and appreciating the intricacies of Yoga, the modern belief of leaving the past in the past and only looking ahead is certainly not the way to go. In order to fully grasp the varied concepts of Yoga, it is vital to educate oneself on the history of the practice and understand how it evolved into the activity in which we take so much joy in the present day.

Though some say that Yoga is as old as civilization itself, the earliest hard evidence can be traced to a set of stone seals depicting yoga poses that date back to 3000 B.C. Learned scholars on the subject, though, maintain that Yoga may be even older than this, going as far back as the time of Stone Age Shamanism.

This is a sensible assumption as both Yoga and Shamanism share key values and interests concerning the improvement of the human condition, and though we recognize modern Yoga to be an activity very much about the self, the practice was originally more community-based before the change to inward focus.   To continue reading, click here.

Traditional Falafel

(Makes 36 falafel balls)
View Original Recipe www.vegetariantimes.com


The most time-consuming step in this recipe is soaking the chickpeas for 24 hours. After that, the falafel balls come together quickly and easily.

Ingredients

1 cup dried chickpeas, rinsed and sorted
tsp. plus ⅓ tsp. baking soda, divided
1 small leek, white and light green part cut into 4 or 5 pieces
1 cup fresh parsley leaves
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
tsp. salt
tsp. ground black pepper
34 drops hot sauce, optional
2 cups canola oil

 

Preparation
 1. Place chickpeas and 1/2 tsp. baking soda in large bowl, and cover with 3 to 4 cups water. Soak chickpeas 24 hours. Drain.

2. Place chickpeas, remaining 1/3 tsp. baking soda, leek, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, salt, pepper, and hot sauce (if using) in bowl of food processor. Process 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until chunky paste forms.

3. Shape 1 Tbs. chickpea mixture into compact ball, pressing out any excess moisture, and place on plate. Repeat with remaining mixture.

4. Heat oil to 350F in large skillet over medium heat. Add 12 falafel balls, and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned on bottoms. Roll, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until golden brown all over. Transfer to paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining falafel balls.
