Food as medicine for health and well being with Dolores Storness-Bliss

Dolores CookingDolores has a remarkable but simple story to tell about food made from scratch. It is healthier and taste better, done in an organized way makes her clients life better.

Dolores’ Story

Growing up in a large family on a small farm in the 50’s & 60’s gave me, what I believe to be, the best possible upbringing. My parents grew and made most of the food that we ate. My mother cooked the majority of our food from scratch using the whole foods that the farm produced. I learned from an early age where real food came from and what it looked and tasted like. I developed a love and connection to the earth and nature which has been part of my core being ever since my childhood. It was from those beginnings that I went out into the world.

When I entered university, in the late 60’s, processed food was becoming a household convenience. For my generation of educated professional women entering the workforce, the convenience of processed food seemed to be a Godsend. We could work and feed ourselves and our families without spending long hours in the kitchen. Fortunately for me, a new style of eating was also making its way into the food landscape and that was vegetarianism.

See the live event here on Thursday April 28, at 12.30 pm EST

My husband had travelled to India to study yoga and we met at University after his return. He was a vegetarian and when we became engaged I also adopted the vegetarian lifestyle. In those days there was no pre-packaged vegetarian food so I proceeded to learn a completely different style of cooking. It was through this that I realized how much I loved cooking delicious and healthy food from scratch and sharing my creations with others. My husband loved my cooking too.

Dolores 1Through the following years of career and raising a family our meal choices shifted. Although I still cooked most of our food from scratch, at times we succumbed to the convenience of processed food. At the same time information started to surface about the health hazards of margarine and preservatives and artificial flavours & colours.

However, it wasn’t until my four year old refused to eat anything but pizza pops that I realized something had to change.

The day she refused her supper and demanded a pizza pop, guilt washed over me like a huge wave, and all my self pride about cooking from scratch, crashed on the rocks. Here I was, so busy and disorganized that I had let my children’s health slip to such a low priority that I was feeding them pizza pops. At that moment I resolved to eliminate processed foods from our table. It meant prioritizing my time and planning healthy snacks. Processed foods disappeared and healthy home cooked became the alternative.

It was also around this time I had the opportunity to open a health food store with my sister in law. I was trained and worked as a teacher but had always had an interest in owning my own health food store. This was a dream come true. By the time I entered the health food business, North American food production had become big business. Farming had shifted out of the hands of small independent farmers into big factory farms where profit was more important than health.

Processed & fast food had become a way of life for many families. Diseases had become rampant and people were starting to turn to natural sources in the effort to find cures. Research was showing the detrimental effects of processed fast food, pesticides and inhumane animal husbandry on the health of Western nations.

Organic and natural farming, were starting to appear as an alternative. When I was growing up we never used terms like organic or natural farming. It was just called food, grown the way our ancestors grew it. It was with this knowledge of what has become of our food supply and it’s catastrophic effects on our health that I felt the desire to use my skills and love of cooking and provide something better.

In 2004, my husband and I sold Health In Order Natural Foods and opened an organic cafe called Nature’s Garden Organic Deli at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. For ten years I cooked and served organic real food to the faculty, staff, students and residents at SFU. It was during those years that I was able to put into practice my love for cooking and creating healthy real food meals. I learned skills & strategies for planning and preparing food for our many loyal customers. They loved the healthy options that we provided.

Our cafe was one, amongst the dozens of fast food establishments on campus, and we soon gained popularity. It was through interacting with my customers at Nature’s Garden that I realized so many people wanted good healthy food but were too busy to cook for themselves. They didn’t have time to plan menus or learn to cook, so they ate out or picked up prepared food on the way home.

After 10 years of loving cooking and providing healthy options for our beloved customers it was time to retire from the long 14 hour days and to look after ourselves. We sold Nature’s Garden and moved to be close to our children and granddaughter. Over the years that we owned Nature’s Garden many people had requested their favourite recipes and I promised to write a cookbook when we sold the business.

I wrote an eCookbook called Nature’s Garden Favourites. However, It was difficult to walk away from 10 years of building and nurturing our business and our customers. When the cookbook was finished I realized that I wanted to offer more. I have a desire to help busy people find simple ways to shift from fast processed foods to cooking healthy meals for themselves and their families.

To that end, I have created a project called ‘Meals in a Weekend Workshop’ where participants work their way through a planned weekly menu using step by step instructions to cook and prepare their food for the week. The workshop takes them through 4 weeks of guided menus.

Through the guidance they become less stressed and start to establish a routine around meal preparation. Through simple recipes and instructions they start to gain confidence in their ability to cook. At the same time they gradually start planning their next months meals so that by the time the Workshop is completed they already have a month’s worth of menu plans in advance.

A Sound Journey; Predictable to Uncertainty Future with Ros Betts

We all start out with certain ideas about how our life should go. We invest a lot of effort in making it go as we had planned, sometimes it works out – and sometimes we meet major obstacles and set backs which we better don’t ignore. These are the turning points in life when we reconsider our values and why we are really here on earth. Join us in this conversation With Ros Betts and Margherita Crystal Lotus.

Acting accordingly to our consciousness shift is not always easy. More often than not it turns out to be our biggest challenge – and our biggest gift at the same time. Things become possible we had never dreamt of, fears fall away and a new courage develops in ways that we are no longer dependent on certainty – which was really never present before, what we now can see from this different perspective.

Many of us have met the shift and overcome the challenge  and explored the gift connected to it. Everybody on their own way.
In today’s episode we ask Ros Betts about her journey from a predictable future into uncertainty, we will learn about her passion for sound healing and many other things. The story told by LIFE.

download+Ros Betts  writes about herself:
Coming from a fairly normal upbringing on a farm, to marrying and raising a family at the same time as building a business with my husband, it was what could be considered a predictable future that lay ahead.
Not what happened …. After a divorce, I changed and grew. As I began building a new life, learning massage and a few other techniques to be able to help other people through various levels of body, mind and spirit dis-ease, I found my passion in using my voice and instruments to help myself heal.
