If you belong to a local farm CSA, you need at least 1 good beet soup to help use up your beets. This soup makes a wonderful first impression because of its gorgeous color – a great first course for a special occasion such as the holidays. After people comment on the color, they rave about the taste and meld of subtle flavors. For a final touch, swirl a bit of cream in each bowl and garnish with a mint sprig...

Many people who struggle with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues sometimes have a difficult time taking care of their pets. Here are some ideas on how to take care of your pets while you deal with your mental health needs...
Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Part of healing when one has mental health issues often involves taking care of our pets. There is a lot of emotional healing gained through giving care to those who love us unconditionally, as our pets do. Our pets don't judge us for being "down in the dumps" or having compelling reasons to wash our hands, again. Sometimes, though, things can be so overwhelming that even pet care is an insurmountable task. Because is can happen, planning ahead is a great suggestion. Here are some ideas how to deal with emotional/mental health crises.

by Glen Dupree, DVM, CVH
Are you concerned with your animal companion’s state of health? Does s/he just not have that glow of good health?...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dr Glen Dupree is my teacher and mentor of homeopathy. The last week of February 2011, Dr Glen became a patient of homeopathy. A year later, he taught a landmark webinar in miasms - I was blessed to participate in the course. (He had been told in 2011 he would not be here.) It is now two years after Dr Glen's horrible illness; he is losing the battle. But he won so much for his students and patients. I am one of many grateful students; I expect it will take the rest of my life to really have a grasp of this wonderful modality. Thank you Dr Glen for your inspiration. Here's Dr Glen's Overview of Homeopathy.
