Tired, confused, forgetful, depressed, sick.  We hear about obesity, diabetes, heart problems and cancer. We rarely hear: healthy, sharp, energetic and vibrant.  Which do you choose? What makes the difference? The food that we eat is major.

A healthy life is not about extreme exercise and dieting. It’s all about eating the unprocessed foods that we were meant to eat in the first place. It’s not too late to take back your life. At first it is difficult, but it get’s easier as our craving for processed, sugary, salty foods goes away.

Unprocessed foods have the vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients that our bodies need and crave. The more processed, fake food that we eat, the more we crave.  So we feed our bodies more toxic chemicals, more sugar and more salt until we end up overweight, sick and cancerous. When we satisfy our bodies with the food it really wants and needs, then the unnatural craving goes away and our thoughts are clearer and we have more energy.

The best foods are foods without labels, but when you do buy foods with labels read them. If it doesn’t have too much salt or sugar and you don’t need a PHD to understand it, it is probably O.K.

A few of my favorite tips:
Carry washed baby carrots or other vegetables with you where ever you go. Start popping them in your mouth while you are in the car. You’re getting great nutrients and by the time you reach your destination, your craving for junk food will be gone.

Eat twice as many vegetables as fruit.

Add mushrooms to your diet. A study has shown that women who eat at least one mushroom a day have 64% less breast cancer. If you add greens to that, it goes up to 89%. I’ve heard that mushrooms even help prevent prostate cancer in men.  It’s all about the micronutrients that are found in natural foods.

Margarine is not healthy. Butter is better but  extra virgin olive oil is best.  Try it on potatoes or toast. It tastes great and it’s good for you – like avocados it has good cholesterol.

Eat more greens, onions, mushrooms, beans, berries, nuts and a rainbow of other fruits and vegetables.

A healthy diet and moderate exercise are the best health insurance you can have. If you have a health tip, or a healthy recipe please leave it in a comment or e-mail me at

  16. If you want to make $10-$150/hour and up to $3500/month of your free time working at
    home part-time then this is the most important message you’re ever
    going to read.

    Here’s why:

    “Businesses need ME! They’re paying me money – CASH – to a
    36-year-old work-at-home mother to get my opinion.”

    Guess what?

    They also need YOU!

    I’m not a marketing expert or a sales gal. In fact, I know very
    little about business. But I do know exactly what I like and what
    I don’t like. I know what products I would buy and what services
    I would use.

    Guess what? This is exactly what large companies are paying me
    for. They need to know what their average customer needs and
    wants. So these companies pay millions of dollars every month to
    the average person. In return, the average person, myself
    included, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.

    You’ve got to try this out. Just click on the link below and

  26. Earn up to $3500/month just by taking simple surveys online!

    I tried one of those online survey sites about 4 months ago that
    say all you have to do is spend a couple of minutes filling out
    some surveys and you will be making hundreds a day….. YEAH RIGHT, I didn’t make anything.

    I joined 7 of these stupid websites and I actually tried filling
    out a couple of surveys on each site and they took forever then at
    the end they wanted me to buy things or I couldn’t complete the

    These are complete scams so be aware!!! I couldn’t believe they
    were even allowed to sell such bogus products.

    Then about 2 weeks ago I was watching the news and they had some
    vice presidents and marketing managers of some major multi million
    dollar companies talking about a site that they personally work
    with to pay consumers for their opinion, A site that actually just
    wants the “average Joe’s” honest opinion on products and services
    and is willing to pay big money to get them. for more information
