The Healthy Way to Cook Veggies


Did you know we are supposed to eat 7 -10 servings of fruits and veggies EVERY day? That's not 7-10 bites of fruits and's whole servings! We know that is almost impossible for the average person.

This is a good article on some healthy ways to cook vegetables. Sometimes serving food that is prepared different can inspire new interest in it. So give it a try! Healthy Ways to Cook Veggies

And if this doesn't get you eating enough veggies each day then you may want to look at supplementing with whole fruit and vegetables in capsule form --- Juice Plus capsules

Have a Healthy Day!

What the Digital Age may be Like soon....

Several people have sent me versions of this because of President Obama's interest in a national health care plan, and it's a bit long, but scary and funny and thought-provoking and I hope you enjoy it. This version is one I enjoyed. Let's hope it's not too close to being true!

"Pizza Hut. May I have your... "
Customer: "Hi, I'd like to order."

Operator: "May I have your NIDN first, sir?"

Customer: "My National ID Number, yeah, hold on, eh, it's

Operator: "Thank you, Mr. Sheehan. I see you live at 1742 Meadowland Drive and the phone number's 494-2366. Your office number at work is 745-2302 and your cell number's 266-2566. Which number are you calling from, sir?"

Customer: "Huh? I'm at home. Where d'ya get all this information?"

Operator: "We're wired into the system, sir."

Customer: (Sighs) "Oh, well, I'd like to order a couple of your all-meat Special pizzas..."

Operator: "I don't think that's a good idea, sir."

Customer: "Whaddya mean?"

Operator: "Sir, your medical records indicate that you've got very high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol. Your National Health Care provider won't allow such an unhealthy choice."

Customer: "What do you recommend, then?"

Operator: "You might try our low-fat Soybean Yogurt Pizza. I'm sure you'll like it.

Customer: "What makes you think I'd like something like that?"

Operator: "Well, you checked out 'Gourmet Soybean Recipes' from your local library last week, sir. That's why I made the suggestion."

Customer: "All right, all right. Give me two family-sized ones, then. What's the damage?"

Operator: "That should be plenty for you, your wife and your four kids, sir. The 'damage,' as you put it, comes $49.99."

Customer: "Lemme give you my credit card number."

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid you'll have to pay in cash. Your credit card balance is over its limit."

Customer: "I'll run over to the ATM and get some cash before your driver gets here."

Operator: "That won't work either, sir. Your checking account's overdrawn."

Customer: "Never mind. Just send the pizzas. I'll have the cash ready. How long will it take?"

Operator: "We're running a little behind, sir. It'll be about 45 minutes. Sir, if you're in a hurry you might want to pick 'em up while you're out getting the cash, but carrying pizzas on a motorcycle can be a little awkward."

Customer: "How do you know I'm riding a bike?"

Operator: "It says here you're in arrears on your car payments, so your car got repo'ed. But your Harley's paid up, so I just assumed that you'd be using it."

Customer: "@#%/$@&?#!"

Operator: "I'd advise watching your language, sir. You've already got a July 2012 conviction for cussing out a cop."

Customer: (Speechless)

Operator: "Will there be anything else, sir?"

Customer: "No, nothing. oh, yeah, don't forget the two free liters of Coke your ad says I get with the pizzas."

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but our ad's exclusionary clause prevents us from offering free soda to diabetics."

Take this little Air Purifier with you when you Travel


I just received a shipment of Natural Air 50's...
which are small one room purifiers.
I love these little guys!
If you travel, one can fit into your suitcase
easily since it's not much bigger than a
deck of cards.
Once you get to your hotel room just plug it into
an outlet and then enjoy fresh, clean air..
not air that is full of the last cleaning
products or the last person who stayed in that room.

It is also a wonderful purifier for a bathroom,
bedroom or dorm room.
The air will smell fresh and clean, plus it is
sanitizing away germs and viruses.

Right Now...for a limited time...
it is Buy ONE--Get ONE FREE!

Check it out...before my shipment is gone!

Hurry--- Only while supplies last!

Warning! Soda Pop is Dangerous to your Health...

We have a refrigerator in the garage. It used to be known as our Pop refrigerator. I used to keep it stocked for my older boys when they were teenagers. The kids would always stop there first when they came in with friends. Well, those days are gone. I no longer buy pop/soda. I refuse to buy Gatorade. Both were snack drinks of choice at our home but now I know how acidic they are.
One can of soda or bottle of Gatorade and you'll have to drink 30 cans of Kangen Water (or alkaline water) to get your body back to the PH level it was before you drank that soda or Gatorade. Yikes... Yes, Gatorade and pop are extremely acidic and disease LOVES an acidic body.

So from now on I will try offer more alkaline foods & drinks to my family since we are bombarded with acidic foods & drinks. Most of our diet is acidic, by nature.

>> Here is a great article about the Dangers of Soda. Please take a few minutes to read it --- Amazing information!

To your health...
