  • Time - The Power to Choose

    Posted on June 19, 2018 by Wendy

    Each person who draws breath on this earth receives the same amount of time each day,

    24 hours, 1440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds.

    At the end of that day the time is gone.

    Time cannot be stolen, exchanged, refunded, stockpiled, or hacked.

    Time is extremely limited and insanely in demand.

    Think of all that competes with your time on a daily basis. Are you overwhelmed yet?

    Many of us live at a frantic pace. Our calendars are overflowing;

    We run from one activity to the next.

    There is constant noise in our lives. We’re always “connected”.

    However, are we actually connecting with others?

    Busyness does not equal importance.

    Today, be intentional in your relationships.

    Make time to spend with those you love and care about.

    Make a new memory you can cherish and reflect on.

    Make sure you do something you love.

    Take time for yourself to fill up your soul so you can fill up others.

    Don’t hang out with people who drain your enery and are always complaining and being negative.

    You don’t want to give your precious time to things and people that you will regret.

    We only pass through this life once. Make your time count

    What will you do today with your 24 hours? Your 1440 minutes? Your 86,400 seconds?

  • How to tell if your Body is Too Acidic - 7 stages of Acidosis

    Posted on April 7, 2018 by Wendy

    How can you tell if your body is too acidic?

    1) The first one is I'm tired. If you're saying that, you're in stage one or step one acidosis.

    2) The second one is irritation or sensitivities. You may have allergies or skin outbreaks, acne. This is stage two acidosis, or step two.

    3) Stage three is when you start constantly clearing your throat or coughing. Your body is actually neutralizing acids or buffering acids, producing a sticky mucus. This is stage three acidosis, or step three.

    4) Step four is when you're in an inflammatory state. You cannot be in an inflammatory state or have pain without acid.

    5) Stage five is when the acid that you should be eliminating becomes solidified. This is when it builds up on the walls of the arteries and sets the stage for a stroke. Most people that are in a stage of solidification can check that by testing their cholesterol, because cholesterol increases in the presence of acidity to buffer excess acid to protect the organs that sustain life. It's not that cholesterol is bad. It's trying to protect you against your poor acidic lifestyle and dietary choices.

    6) Step six is ulcerations, and finally,

    7) Step seven is degeneration. Now you've been diagnosed with cancer or diabetes, or a degenerative or osteoporosis, a degenerative condition that's a reflection of what you're eating, what you're drinking, and what you're thinking.

    These 7 stages of Acidosis are from the pH Miracle book by Dr. Robert Young,
    However, You should consult your physician or other health care professional
    before starting this or any other fitness program to determine

    The great news is Living a healthier lifestyle is a choice to get to make.
    Eat more alkaline foods and feel more vibrant and alive.

    It all begins with YOU!

  • Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today

    Posted on March 14, 2018 by Wendy

    Someone said to me yesterday "It must be nice doing what you love".
    Made me think because I do wake up each day thankful that another day is upon me.

    I guess what I love is meeting new people, building great relationships, and seeing people smile.
    If I can be a small part of their smile my day was lived with some kind of purpose.

    It's amazing how your entire overall health is affected when you are happy and smile.
    Your body will thrive when filled with positive thoughts.

    Giving the gift of a smile is even better!

    Have a fabulous day everyone and Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today :)

  • Plant Proteins

    Posted on March 11, 2018 by Wendy

    As I have been charting my intake
    of healthy fats, proteins, and veggies
    I came across this great article from
    Dr. Robert O Young about how to
    get your protein without eating animal

    Protein Love Affair

    Protein is an essential nutrient which plays many key roles in our bodies,
    but despite America’s love affair with high protein, our bodies don’t actually need that much.

    Dr. Robert O. Young says, “Our bodies are only 7% protein.
    In contrast to cow’s milk, which is protein rich, human mother’s milk is
    only 5% protein (i.e., better suited to the body’s protein requirements).
    In addition, animal protein foods often contribute factors to the body,
    which are unneeded and then represent a challenge to dispose of (e.g., saturated fats).”

    The recommended daily intake of protein is .8 grams of protein for every kilogram in weight.
    Making adjustments for how plant proteins digest somewhat differently from animal proteins,
    The Vegetarian Resource Group arrives at .9 grams of protein per kilogram body weight.
    That’s about 71 grams of protein for a vegan male weighing 174 pounds.

    Plant sources of protein are delicious, abundant, and very healthy for your heart.
    Protein can be alkalizing!

    Here's a list of 5 common vegetarian protein sources, and the amount of protein they provide:

    EDAMAME (protein per cup = 17g)
    Along with high protein and essential amino acids.
    Edamame are also highly alkaline because of their magnesium content.
    But be sure to buy organic, non-GMO edamame, because 90% of soy products are genetically modified.

    HEMP SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 10g)
    High in protein and loaded with heart health benefits.

    CHIA SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 5g)
    Loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids and protein means these tiny seeds can decrease the risk of heart disease.

    BEANS (protein content per cup of mung = 49g; black = 39g; kidney = 43g; adzuki = 39g; lentils = 18g)
    Of course, beans are high in protein, but they’re also high in fiber,
    iron, zinc, calcium and more.

    QUINOA (protein per cup = 8g)
    Even though we eat quinoa as though it were a grain,
    it really isn’t a grain at all. It’s a seed.
    The source plant is related to beets, spinach, and Swiss chard.

    Whether you’re fueling for your work day or fueling for a workout,
    a little protein throughout the day, from vegan sources, really does go a long way.

  • Up Your Kale

    Posted on February 25, 2018 by Wendy


    4 stalks of Kale
    3 Yams
    4 carrots
    25 Brussel sprouts
    4 celery sticks
    1 head of broccoli
    1 bag spinach
    1 bag green beans
    2 small onion
    4 gloves of garlic
    pinch of basil
    pinch of sea salt - season to taste
    Ground pepper - season to taste


    Leave the skins on the vegetables and cut everything up in small pieces.

    Boil the yams, carrots, Brussel sprouts for 5 minutes and use the water you boiled in to add into larger soup pot.

    Cut the rest of the ingredients and put directly into larger soup pot.

    Add 2 or 3 cups of water to larger pot once all ingredients are in pot and simmer for 40 minutes.
    Depends how large a pot you are using. Make it so there is a nice amount of broth.

    Stir occasionally

    Great way to warm your insides on a cold winter day and also get your alkaline vegetables
