Broccoli Rabe Shitake

This tasty dish came about at a Super Food party I was co hosting with a good friend.

I was tossing some shitake mushrooms with minced garlic, ginger, soy sauce and a hint of agave. Then a heaping spoon of Cordyceps, a super food mushroom. They were the best mushrooms I ever had. Then I noticed the Broccoli Rabe in the fridge and asked if I could add it to the mushroom and he said go for it.

So I chopped the broccoli Rabe and sliced some white onions and tossed it all the olive oil and soy sauce. Finally I through in the mushroom, Black Pepper and tossed it all together. Awesome and simple. It took about 8 minutes and 4 of that was cleaning up.

Raw Chef Dan's Tip Of The Month 

Mediate On Your Affirmations

One of the things I have added to my life recently that has had the most effect has been to add morning and bedtime mediations. Not so much to completely meditate as much as a focused meditative chanting of my personal affirmations.
As I explained in my book The Power Of Me, our chronic way of thinking pretty much dictates our life experience. So to make grand changes in my life experience I have focused heavily on changing my conscious and unconscious patterns and content of thoughts.
I have manifested so much sense I have been doing this I can truly say my life has changed in ways I never would have predicted. To learn more on this meditation practice and reprogramming the mind character, download and read The Power Of Me
You have more say in your life experience than you may think

News On The Forefront
NASA Give Obama 4 Years
To Save The World

James Hansen: Obama Has 4 Years to Save the Earth

  • President 'has four years to save Earth'
    US must take the lead to avert eco-disaster
    By Robin McKie
    The Observer (London), January 25, 2009
    Straight to the Source

Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.

Soaring carbon emissions are already causing ice-cap melting and threaten to trigger global flooding, widespread species loss and major disruptions of weather patterns in the near future. "We cannot afford to put off change any longer," said Hansen. "We have to get on a new path within this new administration. We have only four years left for Obama to set an example to the rest of the world. America must take the lead."

Hansen said current carbon levels in the atmosphere were already too high to prevent runaway greenhouse warming. Yet the levels are still rising despite all the efforts of politicians and scientists.

Only the US now had the political muscle to lead the world and halt the rise, Hansen said. Having refused to recognize that global warming posed any risk at all over the past eight years, the US now had to take a lead as the world's greatest carbon emitter and the planet's largest economy. Cap-and-trade schemes, in which emission permits are bought and sold, have failed, he said, and must now be replaced by a carbon tax that will imposed on all producers of fossil fuels. At the same time, there must be a moratorium on new power plants that burn coal - the world's worst carbon emitter.

Hansen - head of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies and winner of the WWF's top conservation award - first warned Earth was in danger from climate change in 1988 and has been the victim of several unsuccessful attempts by the White House administration of George Bush to silence his views.

Hansen's institute monitors temperature fluctuations at thousands of sites round the world, data that has led him to conclude that most estimates of sea level rises triggered by rising atmospheric temperatures are too low and too conservative. For example, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says a rise of between 20cm and 60cm can be expected by the end of the century.

However, Hansen said feedbacks in the climate system are already accelerating ice melt and are threatening to lead to the collapse of ice sheets. Sea-level rises will therefore be far greater - a claim backed last week by a group of British, Danish and Finnish scientists who said studies of past variations in climate indicate that a far more likely figure for sea-level rise will be about 1.4 metres, enough to cause devastating flooding of many of the world's major cities and of low-lying areas of Holland, Bangladesh and other nations.

As a result of his fears about sea-level rise, Hansen said he had pressed both Britain's Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences to carry out an urgent investigation of the state of the planet's ice-caps. However, nothing had come of his proposals. The first task of Obama's new climate office should therefore be to order such a probe "as a matter of urgency", Hansen added.

Tips To Avoiding GMO's

In the U.S., food products that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) do not have to be labeled as such. This is a big problem, considering more than 90% of surveyed consumers say they would avoid products with these ingredients and since most packaged foods on grocery store shelves already contain hidden GMOs. Although Obama stated publicly in his campaign that he supports mandatory labeling for genetically engineered foods, OCA believes we will have to keep the pressure on if he is to fulfill this promise. In the meantime, here are some quick tips to help you avoid GMO ingredients and "Frankenfoods."

1) Look for products that voluntarily label themselves as GMO or GE-free.
2) Buy Organic:  Products certified as "Organic" are not allowed to contain genetically modified ingredients.
3) Avoid non-organic products that contain the most common genetically engineered ingredients: corn (corn syrup, corn meal, corn oil, etc.), fructose, dextrose, glucose, modified food starch, ingredients including the word "soy" (soy flour, soy lecithin, etc.), vegetable oil, vegetable protein, canola oil (also called rapeseed oil), cottonseed oil, and sugar from sugar beets.

Tips for better living
How to Afford Organic Food on a Tight Budget

With increasing food costs and the worst economy in 40 years, many shoppers are questioning whether they can afford to purchase organic foods. One of the quickest ways to reduce your organic grocery costs by as much as 15-20% is to buy in bulk. This doesn't only mean being limited to buying food from bulk bins at your natural food store (although that is an equally effective way to reduce packaging and costs on foods like cereals).
Many people don't realize that most grocery and natural food stores welcome customers to special order cases of food in bulk.
Offording Organic
It's the same premise as buying a 12-pack of soda or juice instead of just buying an individual can. When you think about it, most of the time you grocery shop, you are buying the same foods, so why not make a list of those foods, buy them by the case, save money and reduce your visits to the store? For example, a case of 12 cans of your family's favorite soup typically costs 20% less than what it would cost you to buy those cans individually. Make a list of your favorite foods and go to the information desk next time you are at your grocery store to find out which ones you can buy in bulk.

Alert of the Month:

We couldn't change the Agriculture Secretary, but we haven't given up the hope of changing agriculture policy. For a report on the impact of OCA's Stop Vilsack campaign, which generated over 100,000 emails to Barack Obama and the Senate, and an introduction to OCA's follow-up campaign, USDA Watch, please go here. Now is the time to build the foundation for an organic and sustainable future. You can share your vision for an organic future by urging our new leaders to make healthy, energy-efficient, and carbon-sequestering organic food and farming a priority. President Obama has called on all of us to take responsibility and get involved. Let's take him up on it. Take action today!
1) Contact Secretary of Agriculture Vilsack and tell him to support sustainable and organic food and farming policies.
2) Contact your Congresspersons and tell them that the time for an organic future is now!
3) Send a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper. Raise your voice for organic food and farming.

Ear Candling -- Playing With Fire

By Dr. Mercola

Many readers of my newsletter have written to ask why I don’t recommend ear candling.

The answer is simple. From all of my research it appears that ear candling doesn’t work as its proponents claim, and it actually has the potential to be quite dangerous.

Half Smerk

There’s no scientific evidence that candling has any real benefits, but there are a significant number of reports of burn injuries caused by the procedure.

A Mysterious History

Although ear candling is thought to be an ancient practice, its origin is unclear.

Places and cultures as diverse as China, Egypt, the pre-Columbian Americas, Tibet, the mythical city of Atlantis, and even the Hopi Indian tribe have been mentioned as having originated the practice. No one seems to know for certain, The Hopi Tribal Council has publicly stated that the Hopi people do not and have never practiced ear candling.
