Here it is, the classic Chocolate book (part of the internationally popular Healing Powers series: vinegar, olive oil, honey, coffee, tea, superfoods. It was featured by Newsmax, the Good Cook Book Club, Complete Woman...  And it is timeless because it has antioxidants and feel-good compounds backed by science!
 Approximately 4000 years ago, in Central America, the Mayan Indians considered cocoa beans “food of the gods” because of its medicinal benefits. Later, it got tagged as a “bad” fatty food. But by the end of the 20th century, a twist of fate turned chocolate back into a health food.

THE HEALING POWERS OF CHOCOLATE traces the origin of chocolate, from bean to bar, from centuries ago to the present day. In creating this informative and fascinating book, renowned health expert and author Cal Orey (who lives near San Francisco, one of the nation’s chocolate hot spots) interviewed America’s top chocolate makers and chocolatiers, nutritionists, medical researchers, and chocolate lovers to find out how this ancient “food of the gods” can prevent and fight common ailments and diseases.

The result is a lively comprehensive guide to the wide world of quality chocolate, from 70% dark truffles to Italian biscotti baked with extra virgin olive oil, in America and around the globe. With proven data for eating dark chocolate containing cocoa flavanols to reduce heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and dozens of pesky ailments, this book—with a European twist—takes you on a magical chocolate tour, complete with wit, charm, and entertaining personal anecdotes from ancient folklore to the 20th and 21st century.

From Ancient Folk Medicine to Modern Health Wonder, Discover the Amazing Powers of Chocolate!
Discover the healing powers of dark chocolate and cocoa—now widely recognized as an accepted “health food” and “SuperFood”—versatile cure-all.
Find out how chocolate’s powers can lower the risk of developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and weight woes.
Learn how chocolate contains more antioxidants than green tea and red wine—without the alcohol.
Put dozens of chocolate home cures to work for treating acne, anxiety, brain fog, cabin fever, cough, depression, fatigue, and other ailments.
You’ll also find chocolate beauty and anti-aging treatment—from masks, manicures to bubble baths and body wraps—made from antioxidant-rich chocolate teamed with natural plant extracts.

Incorporating cutting-edge scientific research, plus Mediterranean-style heart-healthy chocolate recipes, from Sicilian Mole to Dark Chocolate Mousse, THE HEALING POWERS OF CHOCOLATE is a well-rounded one-of-a-kind resource that will show you why savoring this no longer forbidden “food of the gods” is the 21st century trend.

Gratitude in a Pandemic -- Staying Positive is Good Medicine

By Cal Orey

Gratitude can be a potent Rx for strength during a contagion. As I sit in my cabin in the mountains, there are things I can do to improve my outcome and stay healthy. 

I remember in the film “One True Thing” Meryl Streep’s character who was stricken with cancer explained  appreciation to her daughter who never seem satisfied. It’s called gratitude. And we all can muster it up this Thanksgiving -- and use it as a stay healthy potion every day to help us get through the dark pandemic tunnel.

The World Is Half Empty – or is It Half Full?

Sure, I’d rather be packing for a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska so I can enjoy the northern lights but it can’t happen (not now) because I would have to quarantine for 14 days up north.  And no Canada for me because the borders are closed. At home I cannot go swim because the pool is closed. I cannot go gambling because it doesn’t feel super safe. And I eat at home because the indoor restaurants are still semi-closed or boarded shut.

But, there are things to be grateful for (right now), and gratitude reminds me how much I do have, even while I feel grounded. I am living at Lake Tahoe – a popular tourism hub. It is off season and the vibrant colors of fall are here. I can savor them while driving my always happy Australian Shepherd around the Lake. I have not gotten the virus and I still have work, even though it’s less than more. And my sibling is now working remotely – not driving Uber. So, I can exhale and not worry, “Will he infect me or the dog?” My point is, there are always things to be grateful for (even now), and gratitude reminds us how fortunate our lives are, even under spooky times with tons of uncertainty.

According to a Newsmax article "Staying Positive During Difficult Times," -- it is possible to stay, well "positive." But, as a seasoned health journalist and intuitive (yep, I predicted the pandemic) I am more of a realist. This, in turn, means have Plan B, stay calm, and the adage, "Hope for the best and prepare for the worst" is how we do to survive. In other words, I am a devout follower of Dr. Fauci.

A Time to Be Happy, Not Worry

As we go through this journey with ups and downs and controversy paired with during stay at home suggestions to physical distancing, and wearing masks, it's stressful! Best to breathe, brew a cup of chamomile, and chillax for your heart's sake. Take a peek at the American Heart Association website -- stress and heart health. Yep, looking on the bright side of what you have and what you don't have is heart-healthy! 

I will take you through a few things you can think about each and every day. What's more, the bestselling book, Good Days Start with Gratitude Journal" makes sense to me. In the a.m., my fave time I always brew a cup of Joe, go back to my bed with the Aussie and Siamese and cuddle up. Sweet solitude.

·       Thanks for the frontline workers: First, go back in time to March when the pandemic hit the U.S. You, like me, probably went into panic mode. We rushed to the grocery store(s) and stocked up on emergency supplies. It was an “ah ha” moment when toilet paper to flour was AWOL. But we got what we needed, eventually, even bonded and laughed with our family and social media friends to get through the chaos. Speaking of stores…

·        Thanks for our family: You, like me, may have noticed the bond with family members, whether it is the spouse or sibling, cat or dog, has gotten stronger – not weaker. Instead of taking our loved ones for granted we have had the time to realize how much we rely on one another to get through the hardship of the unknown during uncertain times. This is what humans do.

·        Thanks for our faraway friends. Sure, no huge parties or face-to-face get-togethers like we’re used to for now. However, a dangling conversation via the Internet with a friend 3,000 miles away or a phone call to someone in another country who is experiencing what we’re all going through in this pandemic bonds us. It’s sharing similar challenges and feelings. It’s real. It’s called connecting on a deeper level.

The Tough Get Tougher -- and Stay Mindful

Also, it helps to go back in time to past challenges – really big ones. As a boomer these times come to mind. The Cuban Missile Crisis, the death of John F. Kennedy, the loss of my mother and father, and hitchhiking across America without a penny and only my dog, and dumped by a significant other after a decade of loyalty -- and a major 1989 SF Quake. The thing is, I, and perhaps you, too, have survived rude events. But we keep moving forward. And, it helps to be prepared -- not scared.

Often, we become complacent and forget what we have and how good we have it. For instance, a year ago, I realized I could jump on a jet plane and fly out of the country, not budget my money, and never thought twice about my good health. Nowadays, I realize I took a lot of what I had for granted. I was blessed to have the luxury of doing whatever I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it.

During uncertain times, there are restrictions. So, we gravitate toward others. Each and every day we realize wherever we are we are grateful to enjoy being able to enjoy the little things even though the bigger things are not available. Not now. Tough times help make us tougher and able to see the big picture and what really matters: Humanity and our planet.

The World Turns with Gratefulness

Have you noticed you’ve learned to adapt to a new normal? Sure, we still get our food, eat our meals, watch movies (at home), and communicate to people who are doing the same. We sleep, and even work – it’s just a bit different with bumps in the road as we go through the motions of living in a pandemic. But if we have our health it makes it a lot easier – and this is something to be thankful for, right?

So, we may weather a second wave of the virus. Or not. Worse, another strain of a plague could happen. But we only can control what we do, day by day. Whether you choose to believe the virus is a hoax or realize it may be very real – it’s a moot point. The most important thing to remember is life is forever changing and nothing stays the same. But as the clock ticks, it’s time to show appreciation for today – and it will give you hope for a brighter tomorrow. According to Harvard Medical School, staying on the positive track can help you get through tough times.

The bottom line: Thanks for having frontline workers, family, and friends can indeed help us mentally and physically feel better and stay stronger during tough times. After all, we’re all in this pandemic together, for better or worse. And like past challenges, we will get through this together and be thankful when it is over. Why? We will be able to embrace the world -- once again -- probably in the Spring when signs of renewal and bright light arrive.

Feng Shui in Your Kitchen for Fall Health, Happiness and Good Fortune!

 By Cal Orey

Here I sit in the cabin trying to muster up the drive to get into fall cleaning.  It’s time for some feng shui moves. Simply put, feng shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement. Its goal is to bring you contentment.

By putting stuff in the right spots in your home – start in the kitchen where the heart of your home is. It may enhance the flow of positive energy and zap negative vibrations. The end result: good health, happiness, and fortune.

Read on--you, too, can enjoy a well-balanced kitchen that feels good from head to toe like I recall enjoying as a little girl...

1. Use Eco-friendly Vinegar and Essential Oil Cleaners. It's time to clean your kitchen from top to bottom with natural stuff. You'll be doing you, yours, and Mother Nature a favor. Using nontoxic vinegar can help you to: lose the ants; clean stainless steel, get rid of dust, and keep fresh flowers longer. By keeping it green it will provide you with better health and energy.

2. Declutter Your Stuff. Ditto. Getting rid of things you don't use will up your energy. It's true. You feel lighter with less kitchen baggage, starting fresh is rejuvenating. I cleaned out both the fridge and freezer. Add a fresh box of baking soda to soak up odors. Then, I tackled the pantry and tossed out olive oil, pasta, rice, soup, gourmet spices (yep, I sadly discovered they don't last forever) and anything else that expired...What's the saying: Out with the old and in with the new.

3. Clean the Stovetop and Oven. This was a chore but it feels right to have the stovetop shine. (My Stepford Wife colors are starting to show.) The inside of the oven is sparkling, too. If you must use toxic oven cleaner, go over it with the natural stuff. Trust me, this is a feel-good must-do before warming up to those cooler days 'n' nights of unforgettable autumn baking and cooking (breads, muffins, casseroles, etc.).

4. Brighten Up with Lighting. During the colder days without sun you'll want to have sunny-type lighting which can up your energy and mood--linked to good health. Go for full spectrum light bulbs. No fall blues or other pesky problems. Speaking of lightening up...

5. Boost Your Mood with Plants. To help wipe out pollutants in your kitchen, fill your space with hardy, happy plants. Your best bet during the fall: philodendrons which can soak up air pollutants. They do well in the Sierras unlike Boston Ferns (which I love).

6. Bring on the Water. Fish aquariums provide positive energy in the dining room, especially with a gentle filter Ever notice Asian restaurants and the calming ambiance of fish?

7. Fish, Fish, Fish. Today, I read that goldfish can bring you good luck and prosperity. In fact, nine is the lucky number. The colors? Gold and one black one. (Go smaller rather than bigger in size = less cleaning.) My kitchen/dining room/study all are connected. So, the fish aquarium is a pleasant, calming treat for all three rooms. Note to self: Add more fish.

8. Bring Out the Fresh Fruit. I've got several plump healthful seasonal fruits on display and ready to eat, such as pears placed in a stainless-steel colander. A full bowl may lead to a full life. Translation: Display pretty bowls with plenty of pretty fruit. Empty bowls with just a few pieces of not so nice fruit not so good. And oranges? Nine is the lucky number I've read...Put 'em in a wooden bowl and on the kitchen or dining room table. (Note: If they're pricey, purchase oranges or apples in a bag. Save the separate, sweet and juicy ones for eating.)

9. Conceal Knives and Scissors. My father gave me a black and white marble knife block, cutting board, and rolling pin. I love it. But the knives are out of sight. Bad vibes, say feng shui folks.

10. Hang Wind Chimes with Crystals. I brought one of mine in from the deck--and put it above the kitchen windows. The one I chose is of a sun with a face. It makes me smile every time I look at Mr. Sunshine. Feng shui gurus recommend hanging chimes in the doorway to the kitchen or over the stove sings good energy.

A bonus tip: A new calendar.  Get one that features inspirational thoughts for 2021--and, of course, the dates of lunar cycles.
