Why Pay Attention to your Dreams?

Written by Kat Samworth. Posted in Self Growth.

living spiritual dreams

Dreaming is a natural process that happens just by virtue of being human. And like other natural processes such as breathing, it does its work whether or not we pay attention to it. But like with breathing, if we do pay attention, we can begin to have a different and perhaps deeper kind of relationship to it. When we learn how to purposely take deeper breaths, we begin to have new kind of living connection to our body. It can be like this and so much more when we pay attention to the natural process of dreaming. When we intentionally dive deeper into our dreams, we develop a new kind of relationship with the totality of ourselves and to the world we live in.

Living the UnBalanced Life

Written by Melissa Crispell. Posted in Integrative Health.

Living Well,Family Health,unbalance life

We are taught to strive for balance. How many times have you sworn that you’ll do better, be better, and “get more balance” in your life?  Google “living a balanced life” and you’ll find over 8 million results in only .92 seconds so I’d say it’s something people are really interested in. If that weren’t true there wouldn’t be books, blogs, coaching events, and Facebook posts galore about “ how to achieve balance.” This isn’t another one of those articles.  This article isn’t a “5 steps to a completely balanced, perfect, unobtainable life.” It’s designed to ask a few questions, maybe raise a few more and spark a healthy conversation about what we are all looking for. 

Pets and Humans: Summer Safety Tips

Written by Caroline M. Wieczorek, VMD. Posted in Pet Health.

Healthy Living,Keep you pets safe during hot weather

Summer and warm (hot) weather are upon us shortly. This means a few extra precautions for our furry friends.

SUN PROTECTION:
We protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun and should do the same for our pets. Animals can get sunburn, too! Apply small amount of pediatric SPF 30 to pale nose tips and bridges of noses, and ear tips. White animals, especially, are prone to melanomas on their ear (pinna tips) and eyelids when exposed to harsh summer sun for long periods of time. Animals that are coated and are shaved for the summer may need sun protection on their backs until their fur grows back, for at least a month or so.

Posted in Appetizers.

Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Artichoke “Tapenade”
Serves 14; 2 tablespoons per serving
12 ounces roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and drained if bottled
1/2 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
2 ounces sliced button mushrooms
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves or 1 tablespoon dried basil, crumbled
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
2 medium garlic cloves, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil (extra-virgin preferred)
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a food processor or blender, pulse the bell peppers, artichokes, mushrooms, basil, lemon juice, onion, and garlic until coarse. Pour into a medium bowl. Stir in the oil and salt.
Cook’s Tip: To roast bell peppers, preheat the broiler. Lightly spray a broiler pan and rack with cooking spray. Broil the bell peppers on the broiler pan about 4 inches from the heat, turning until the peppers are charred all over. Or grill whole bell peppers over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Put the broiled or grilled peppers in a plastic or paper bag and close the bag or put them in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 5 to 20 minutes. Rinse the peppers with cold water, removing and discarding the skins. Cut the peppers in half and discard the cores, seeds, and stems. Blot the peppers dry with paper towels. Roasted bell peppers will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to four months.
