Vegan Education at Your Fingertips

One of my favorite sources for "vegan education" is the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii. They have monthly educational programs where they feature some of the best health experts on plant based nutrition. This is a recent lecture by Mary Clifton MD, who has recently discovered the power of a vegan diet in reversing disease, something that she did not learn in medical school. She is cute and fun to listen to. I hope you will take time to watch.

Foods That Fight Inflammation.

I'm really excited to see this post from Dr. Michael Greger today on Facebook. 
In my smoothie class this morning, one of the guests asked which smoothie, out of the 3 smoothies I made, was best for inflammation. I told her the one with the highest anti-oxidants which was the ...Purple Power Smoothie. And here is Dr. Greger to back me up. So this is for my friends at the Bridge Recovery Center ( and anyone else who is fighting inflammation. Be sure to read his blog posts suggested below the video.

Choose To Be Well!

I'm reading another book called Uninformed Consent by Hal A. Huggins, D.D.S., M.S. There is s paragraph that I love and want to share. It might seem a little bold and offend some, but I'm trying to be more outspoken in my old age:)

"If you are on prescription medicines, you are not well, even if you are holding most of the symptoms at bay. Dying in your seventies after spending the last twenty to thirty years of your life with one or more chronic diseases may be the pattern shared by the majority of the population, but it is not good health, and you do not have to settle for it."
