False promises, misinformation, fads, opinions—there is no shortage when it comes to health, fitness, and diet.  Linked with convincing  negative thoughts the perfect excuse to do nothing takes root and gives disease fertile ground.

I am discouraged and frustrated that friends and family, unhealthy, in pain, overweight, and dying will not listen and act on information about food’s impact on their lives.  An uncle with MS, a sick overweight aunt, a sister with multiple health issues—WILL NOT LISTEN!

It is not easy to learn about nutrition or to learn how to prepare foods properly.  I get it.  I even volunteered to live-in for a week, to be a diet buddy, I created this blog and load great plant based recipes on Pinterest.  My family will not read my blogs.

However, I carry a torch for Dr. Fuhrman whose link is in this post. Kimberly Snyder’s Beauty Detox Solution is my health foundation and I want to at least try to tell people about what I know works.

Do you want a solution or are you making excuses?


To your health,


Pain and Food

Yep, I have arthritis, osteoporosis, and degenerating disc disease but they do not have me! My back has given me grief for decades and about six years ago I was diagnosed with all these painful diseases; at last I could name my demons.

I thought about using them as a excuse not to walk or run or swim, but the thought of giving up or giving in to disease was more painful. I realize my fitness journey started many years ago and I surprise myself with how far I have come. What else surprises me is how often I got derailed. Now that is just not an option.

Now I know certain foods actually help relieve pain. Real Age http://www.realage.com has a good article that explains some of the benefits of certain pain fighting foods. I don’t ascribe to dairy or soy or a lot of olive oil, but they are easily replaceable. Grape seed oil has better fats than olive oil. Soy messes with my thyroid (yea, have thyroid disease too). I always gain weight when I use soy or dairy, but Almond Milk is a great alternative.

Otherwise a diet rich in greens and veggies and fruits help make those aches and pains subside.

Good news, I reversed osteoporosis and regained 1/2″ in lost height after just one year of aquatics. I cannot wait to see how much more I heal myself with a greater commitment, a vegan diet (I will eat salmon), and more yoga and aquatics.

It’s a journey.
