STUFF WE LIKE RUBIK’S TOUCHCUBE UBE e think everyone veryone remembers the bittersweet frustraation brought on byy Rubik’s Cube in thee ‘80s. It wracked yourr brain for hours, then n you chucked it across oss the room. Then, after er cooling down, you retrieved rieved the Rubik’s Cube from wherever you threw it to give it another go. Times have changed since then in, and so has the Rubik’s Cube. Like so many other things, it’s gone digital! It’s now in the form of a touch screen, waiting for you to slide your finger over the Touchcube to move rows. And, much like Mahjong Solitaire, you can now ask for hints to help you out with your next move. The downside to digital? You can’t disassemble it, put it back together, then claim that you’ve solved the puzzle. But don’t worry, it’ll still wrack your brain. $49.99

GO BAREFOOT oing barefoot sounds awesome, but we’ve got to admit that our world is dirty! Treading the earth without something between our feet and the ground just seems icky. So you can imagine how excited we are about Vibram Five Fingers, a shoe that looks more like a foot glove, makes you feel like you’re barefoot, and stimulates and exercises the foot in its natural state. To say that this new shoe is innovative isn’t a fair summation of the remarkable product; rather, its design acknowledges the millenia mother nature has invested into the human design. We often forget this, but when humans began to wear shoes, we took our feet out of a natural state. And since being barefoot is icky, Vibram Five Fingers is the next best thing to natural, especially since they’ll help to strengthen muscles in lower legs and feet and improve range of motion, balance and agility and posture. Check out www.vibramfivefingers. com for more information, or visit any of the following places to try them on:

Health&Beauty Heitkam’s Honey

HONEY-DO’S e love honey at The Wave. We love it in our oatmeal, we love it on desserts, we love it in our tea, and we even love it in our soap and beauty products. We also love that it is completely and utterly natural, going straight from the comb to the jar, that it’s been produced by bees for a gazillion years, existing throughout history, and that it never, ever goes bad. (Really, if it starts to harden, just place the jar in the sun or in warm water, and its brand new).

You know what else we love about it? We love all of the natural health benefits it has to offer. Here are a few:

• Honey has been touted as a remedy for insomnia because it helps regulate blood sugar levels, while some studies say it contributes to the release of melatonin, the hormone that controls the body’s sleep cycle. • Honey mixed with tea, hot water, or lemon juice can soothe a sore throat. • Honey may be a better option than sugar or artificial sweeteners for people with Type 2 diabetes. One study showed it caused a significantly lower rise in blood 14

THEWAVEMAG.COM MARCH 323, 2010

sugar than dextrose or refined sugars. • Because raw local honey contains minute bits of pollen, ingesting it can “desensitize” allergy sufferers in the same way that allergy shots do. • Darker honey, such as buckwheat, may contain as many antioxidants as a similar serving size of some fruits. • Studies have shown that eating honey helps maintain bifidobacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, the “good” bacteria that assists in digestion. • Medical grade honey can heal wounds and prevent the spread of bacteria. Note that regular honey isn’t medical grade, so if you have a persistent wound, ask your doctor about trying out Medihoney.

FOOTWEAR ETC. e don’t care what anyone says; uncomfortable shoes, regardless of whether or not they’re cute, on sale, or trendy, are a faux pas. If you can’t walk in them, you don’t look good in them. And if you’re in pain when wearing them, believe us, people know it. But comfort doesn’t necessarily mean you need to forego fashion (let’s keep

BEAN POWER veryone loves to rave about rich-colored fruits and veggies for antioxidant boosts, all while the poor little bean gets the shaft. But beans are, hands-down, one of the best natural foods you can put in your body. Beans are not only high-octane sources of antioxidants (which stop free radicals from damaging cells in your body), but they possess significant amounts of fiber and soluble fiber (to lower blood cholesterol), and are high in protein (to increase muscle mass, build and repair tissues), complex carbohydrates (to supply energy) and iron (helps carry oxygen to organs through blood cells and increases immunity), amongst a variety of vitamins.

E

The nutrients in beans vary by type, so the best thing to do for your health and taste palate is to mix them up. Here’s one of our favorite power recipes:

BEAN AND BARLEY* SOUP: INGREDIENTS: 1 package dried bean and barley mix (about 2 cups, found at your local grocery store or Trader Joe’s), soaked overnight** 1 can organic diced tomatoes (look for cans that contain only 1-5% sodium; they’re out there)

1 tbsp olive oil 1 large white onion, chopped 2 red bell peppers, chopped 5 celery stalks, chopped 5 large carrots, chopped 1 bay leaf

½ tsp Italian seasoning 1 tsp dried basil ¼ tsp thyme 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed 1 tsp black pepper 1-2 16 oz vegetable or chicken broth

Soak the beans in water overnight. Before beginning to chop the veggies, rinse the soaked beans, place in a large pot with 16 oz. 18

broth, cover, and place on low heat. Chop all veggies and garlic and place in large pan or wok with olive oil, and cook on medium heat until the veggies are soft. Transfer the cooked veggies to the pot of beans. Mix in the can of tomatoes and seasonings. Keep the pot on simmer for at least one hour, stirring occasionally. Add additional broth, as needed. You’ll end up with one large pot of delicious, healthy soup.

18

*Barley also contains high amounts of soluble fiber and antioxidants **If you prefer to use canned beans and skip the soaking, choose a mix of lima beans, blackeye peas, dark red kidney beans, garbanzo beans, green lentils, large lima beans, navy beans, light red kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, red lentils, pearl barley, yellow split peas, and any and all other types of beans, really. Before cooking with canned beans, place them in a colander and rinse. This will remove extra sodium content.

It’s a fitness system/exercise that focuses on stretching and lengthening core muscles to improve posture and flexibility. Pilates involves breath awareness and alignment of the spine, with the intent to strengthen deep torso muscles without creating bulk and to balance the body. Because we use our cores and spines for every activity (even sitting!), taking part in Pilates can provide a number of health benefits for every day living. Want to check it out?

You’ll experience what pizza is meant to taste like with freshly made sauces, dough and meats that are all watched over with a caring eye as it’s baked to perfection. If we may be so bold, we’d like to suggest the pizza with spicy calabrese sausage, onions, pepper and parsley, as it is fab-u-lous.

While it’s true that Stacks’ selection of flapjacks (including the banana, macadamia nut and coconut pancakes) are exquisite, simply dubbing Stacks as a glorified IHOP is wildly shortsighted. After browsing their selection of creative omelets and savory crepes, you’ll begin to sense the place is more than just another breakfast diner. By the time you read through their list of frittatas, skillets and “cheese melters,” you’ll be downright surprised to find you haven’t even gotten to the specials menu.

MEAT ON A STICK or those unfamiliar with the Brazilian dining experience dubbed churrasco, let us explain: You pay a set price, and butleresque servers frequent your table with gigantic skewers of succulent roasted meats. They slice off as much (or as little) as you desire, and continue to return unless you turn a two-sided token on your table from green to red – which means they’ll stop the meat train until you’re ready to “go” again. The menu at Pampas offers a huge range of delicious meats, including Picanha (a traditional Brazilian cut of top sirloin), Maminha (slow-roasted tri-tip seasoned with olive oil and rock salt), Cordeiro (leg of lamb marinated with garlic, mint and yogurt) and Lombo (pork loin sea-

MIZU SUSHI BAR & GRILL here are times and places for all-you-can-eat sushi and sake bombs, but when you’re in the mood for fine dining and a swank atmosphere, you know in your heart that those places just won’t cut it. While there’s no dress code for Mizu Sushi Bar & Grill, you’ll definitely feel inspired to jazz it up a bit after looking at the pictures on their website. The full bar and lounge lend the sophisticated, modern restaurant a club-y vibe without the attitude, and the menu boasts Asian fusion cuisine, blending the flavors of Japan and Korea. With a number of entrees (including donburi, teriyaki, udon, hotpots, katsu and Korean bbq), sushi and sashimi, and boats for two (including selections of sushi, tempera and more, served with soup and salad), it’ll likely take you a while to choose your meal. So we suggest you either order a cocktail and take your time, or go straight for our favorite, the Bulgogi (thin slices of marinated beef, pork, or chicken with assorted vegetables). 1035 S.

t's here, one Elle of a Show! The hilarious MGM film is now a smash hit musical, coming to town to perform live for you. Underestimated blonde UCLA sorority star Elle Woods doesn't take "no" for an answer. So, when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.

OPERA ANYONE?

Cuisine: Mexican Oaxacan

here’s nothing more elegant then you and your sweetie putting on your Sunday’s best, having a fine dinner followed by attending the opera at an ultra plush opera house, and of course using those cool little binoculars. But sometimes you just want the entertainment without all the extra frills, you just want to wear your sweat suit and maybe enjoy a bucket of popcorn and Coke, while yet still enjoying your passion of the opera. If this is the case you’ll want to visit Camera 7 in the Prudeyard where you can enjoy a full length productions of Il Trovatore (Mar. 7), Siegfried (Mar. 21), Thais (Apr. 4) on the big screen – you can even bring your binoculars if you want.
