The vegetarian section is comprehensive for an all-around cookbook. The recipes use many different grains, tofu, tempeh, and beans. I made the Portobello with polenta and tomatoes is was delicious and the recipe was easy to follow.
The fish section has recipes for a large variety of fish and has many different sauces that can be used on any fish. I made the broiled salmon with mint citrus relish for a dinner party, and it was a hit. Simple to make, yet impressive for a dinner party. It was healthy and had a beautiful presentation.

A full body scan is a great way to reduce stress. In this video, I will guide you through the steps. It is a tool that you could easily practice yourself.
When you are aware of where and how you hold tension in your body, you can begin to deal with it and to find solutions. The intent of a body scan is to feel the discomfort until you can describe it in detail, rather than avoid the discomfort. Our bodies normal reaction to tension is to ignore it and hope it goes away. This technique does just the opposite.
Before you begin the body scan, I suggest you take a step away from your problems and redirect your feelings. If there is a challenge that came up, change your perspective. If it is not something you can change, trust in divine order. Have faith that there will be a solution. That faith will open the door to solutions.

Why is mindfulness important? It seems every week; I see an article talking about mindfulness. I feel I am mindful or at least I try. I meditate every day and try to remain in the present moment. Why do I do this? It is because of our minds, our ego based mind likes to dwell on the past or live in the future.
When we live in the past, it is usually with regrets. When we live in the future, it is usually filled with fear or anxiety. Even if we have optimistic thoughts about our future, there is anxiety. What “if” it does not happen as we project or want?
Sometimes the present moment is unbearable or painful. It is our attachment or judgment that creates more pain or unhappiness. If we just accept the present moment, just let it be and then take action. Being mindful allows you the space to find solutions to life’s problems.
Try the tips to practice mindfulness that is in this video. Practice before the present moment is unbearable.
