What you choose to do today will effect your tomorrow. Sounds simple enough, yet so many of us go unconcious in our choices. As if we go on auto pilot and let our actions and reactions live for us.

Have you considered the BODY, MIND, SOUL connection? Think about this – Your mind makes a choice, your body likes or dislikes it and very much reacts to what you put into it, then your soul is either delighted, or feels punished for the actions. This vicious cycle continues over and over again until we choose to wake up.

Take time to make your decisions, and make some small changes to improve whatever it is you wish, but for God sake WAKE UP! I don’t want to hear you bitch and complain about your poor health, IF YOU are the one who compromised your health and choose to rely on modern medicine to fix you later. Guess what? They won’t. Everything that leads to a healthy being, begins with what YOU choose.

I’m not saying it will be easy. Change is hard at times, but so worth it. What would you give to feel just 10% better tomorrow? You probably don’t even remember what it feels like to FEEL GOOD. I mean really feeling good, with all the aches and pains gone, or at least less present. You can make small changes that will lead to big changes in your body, mind and soul.

I thinks it’s a good idea to choose to be healthy, and so I took steps to accomplish that. I am well on my way, and I hope you will be soon as well.

Sugar, ah honey honey

Honey, ah sugar sugar
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you.

Just like the song, this seemed to be my personal Mantra for many years until I found the bliss of Raw Living Foods.

Are you ADDICTED to Sugar? Will someone PLEASE tell me why Sugar is not illegal or classified as a narcotic. Are you kidding me! People are being slowly killed by this stuff every day. Go ahead and call me crazy, but have you seen the link to Alzheimers, Obesity, and ADHD among a host of others. It doesn’t matter if it’s Bleached White Cane Sugar, or Agave. Your body does not need this much sugar. What happens when you eat it? It’s like a DRUG and you want more don’t you? Ok, so what can you do about it – look for a lower glycemic sweetener. I like Yacon and Lucuma. Both come in either a powder or syrup form. Yacon Syrup has about 1g of sugar in a Tbsp and Lucuma has 2g in a Tbsp VS. Dare I say it…..AGAVE has 16g of sugar in one Tbsp! I bet you didn’t know that. I didn’t pay attention for a long time either and I am a total sugar aholic, so I rationalized…it’s natural…it’s raw, but the fact is that it’s not the best for me. Many of the recipes I use do call for Agave. I like to use less than called for, or substitute with the Lucuma or Yacon and there’s always Raw Honey for smoothies. Keep you brain and waistine in check and make smarter choices. That’s all I’m sayin’.
