Better Breakfast, Two Ways

Tired of eating the same thing for breakfast? Here are two ways to incorporate super foods quinoa and flax into your morning meal, whether you like it hot or cold.

Quinoa, sometimes called a whole grain, is actually the seed of a green leafy plant that is still cultivated in South America. Revered by the ancient Aztecs as a source of energy, chefs and home cooks now admire it for its mild taste and creamy texture. Quinoa is as easy to cook as rice, but it's also a complete protein (translation: it has all 9 essential amino acids) and is very high in manganese (which helps keep bones strong), niacin and fiber.

Flax is another nutritional heavy hitter and has a nutty flavor reminiscent of toasted coconut. The seeds range in color from golden to brown to reddish brown. Heavy with omega-3 fatty acids, just two tablespoons of flax a day can give you almost all of your daily needs – but remember to purchase them ground, or grind your own, since the whole seed can pass through your system undigested. Ground flax can be sprinkled on top of or stirred into many of your favorite recipes.

Hot Cereal with Quinoa, Oats and Flax

Serves 2

1/2 cup quinoa, well rinsed
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon ground flax
2 tablespoons chopped dates
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Place the quinoa in a small saucepan with 1½ cups of water. Bring to a boil and cover. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the center of each quinoa seed is almost translucent. Stir in the oats, flax, dates, ginger, cloves and salt. Cook 5 to 10 minutes more, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the oats are cooked through. Stir in the brown sugar and nuts, serve immediately.

Coat two large baking sheets with cooking spray. Spread the granola out evenly onto the baking sheets.

Paganism / Wiccan

Paganism / Wiccan
Pagan Living

From Patti Wigington, your Guide to Paganism / Wiccan
So this week, we're looking at a former congressman who proves that some people never change in their levels of ignorance, there's an interesting religious battle brewing in a Chicago divorce case, and a bill that would have introduced religion (but only certain kinds) into Colorado public schools has failed. Also, a behind the scenes look at "Clash of the Titans," and a tragic story about a psychic and her disgruntled client. Have a magical week, and watch for this week's special edition on Friday, when we'll be talking about your magical altar space!

Bob Barr Is Worried About Military Pagans

Honest to dog, I wanted to title this blog entry "Bob Barr is Still an Asshat," but I was iffy on how it might effect Google rankings. That having been said, I'm sure you remember him -- years ago, when he was a congressman from Georgia, he wrote a press release attacking the freedom of religion at Fort Hood's Open Circle and other military bases. He stated that he was concerned that the United States military was supporting a religion that he didn't feel should be allowed within the armed forces. Then in 2008, he decided he wanted to be President, and tried to run on a... Read more

A Sneak Peek at "Clash of the Titans"

OK, so I know that this isn't TMZ or Entertainment Tonight, but I know many of you are big fans of fantasy and mythology like I am, so I wanted to share this nifty piece from It's a sort of advance look at the upcoming remake of Clash of the Titans. Remember the 1980s version, with really cheesy special effects, that weird robot owl, and... Read more

Divorce, Custody, and Religious Choice

It's always heartbreaking to see a kid stuck between fighting parents, but when the fighting centers around the child's religious upbringing, it's even worse -- after all, both parents are trying to what they feel is best for the child's spiritual well-being. A Chicago case has recently become high-profile because a father violated a temporary restraining order regarding the religious upbringing of his three-year-old daughter. Joseph Reyes, a law student, is Catholic, and his estranged wife Rebecca is Jewish. After their daughter Ela was born, Joseph converted to Judaism. Once he and his wife split up, Joseph returned to Catholicism, and now Ela's religion is becoming an issue in an already nasty custody battle. Rebecca claims that while they were married, she and ...

Public School Religion Bill Fails in CO

Remember Dave Schultheis, the Colorado senator who was really worried about what might happen if Pagans and Wiccans were granted the same rights as everyone else? Well, Schultheis was busy introducing a Public Schools Religious Bill of Rights this session that would, if passed, "allow for religious education in the public school curricula," and I'm happy to say that it has died a quiet death. SB 089, as oirginally presented, would have allowed Colorado educators "to choose not to teach subjects such as evolution and sex education that might conflict with their religious beliefs... [and] to distribute religious material and...Read More
