You are what you Eat?

Just a thought.... but

"You are what you Eat"

So, what do you EAT?  

Are you Sweet because you eat Sweets?

Are you "Hot" because you eat Spicy Foods?

Nope don't be a Dope .....

Check out what your eating if you're:
On medication for : High Blood Pressure or  Elevated Cholesterol 
Hair Falling out
Skin Problems 
Failing Memory

... Now, what was I saying?

Oh, Right

You are what You Eat and  A N D what you Don't Eat... Like your  Fruit & Vegetables..!

Just for Fun.... 

Carrot - Eye A sliced Carrot looks like the Human Eye. The Pupil, Iris and Radiating Lines look just like the Human Eye...and YES science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

Tomato - Heart Chambers A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The Heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes - Heart Shape Grapes hang in a cluster that has the Shape of the Heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

Walnut - BrainA Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut, just like the neo-cortex. We now know that Walnuts help develop over 3 dozen Neuron-Transmitters for Brain Function.

Kidney Beans Heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb - Bones These Foods specifically target Bone Strength. Bones are 23% Sodium and these foods are 23% Sodium. If you don't have enough Sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the Bones, making them weak. These Foods Replenish the Skeletal Needs of the Body.

Avocado, Pears - Womb & Cervix - TesticlesThese Foods target the health and function of the Womb and Cervix of the Female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 Avocado a Week, it Balances Hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and Prevents Cervical Cancers.
   And how profound is this?
It takes exactly 9 Months to grow an Avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.

Figs - Male Testicles Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of Male Sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well as help Overcome Male Sterility.

Since I started this Journey 2 years ago
 (Blogging along the way)  I discovered a TRUTH 

The Importance of BALANCING one's Life

This means when you look at problems, illnesses,  and lifes challenges, START by looking at ALL THREE  Area's of our Life: 


So when I say "you are what you eat"....

 T H I N K    (please)

What do I feed my SOUL

What do I feed my MIND

Why is it that we are so CONSUMED with what we feed our body?

Check out FOOD NETWORK ratings!   There is the focus of our Culture today

I translate this by saying  

People today are fixated on feeding their APPETITE! 

 In my quest for Health and Wellness I have found that I need to put my "appetite in check" .......

I believe this Nation has an Epidemic of Obesity because  People feel SO empty Spiritually  that they attempt to fill the Void with Food.

Balance our Life starts  by asking: 

What am I feeding my M I N D ?

What am I feeding my S O U L ?

Psalms 107:9
For he satisfies the longing soul,

and fills the hungry soul with goodness.

So, when ya wake up tomorrow morning and say 

"hummm, what do I WANT to eat for Breakfast"

Change it to:

Hummm, what does my Body need this morning for fuel
I feed my Spirit and Mind some fuel for the day!

Then... I will be Whole and Satisfied to face my Day

Wow, Powerful little Nugget to ingest... ya think

To your Health and Wellness

PS: Where do you eat?
Where do you feed your Mind and Spirit?
What do you feed your Mind and Spirit?
Who do you eat with?  How is their Health?

We can only learn when we are willing to ask questions and then listen to our Heart

Do you really believe that? Wake up and Smell the Truth

If someone asked you what would be a healthy diet, what would you say?

If someone asked you how to get in shape, what would you say?

If someone asked you how one finds peace, what would you say?

How is it we have a treasure chest of knowledge yet struggle everyday?

           My answer:   We struggle everyday when we feed the "golden calf"

Balance and Center our lives in TRUTH!

Let me help you here:

The Golden calf ?  What do you spend most of your time seeking?  What pre-occupies your mind?  

The Truth ?  "I am the way the truth and the life" John 14:6

Stop being "afraid" to really stand naked in front of a Mirror and Exam                        what we have done                                                                                                          to what GOD CREATED

FACE YOUR FEARS, Get Naked in front of the Mirror!

Oh for heaven sakes.... I am speaking metaphorically 
(or you can really do that!)

Take off the layer's upon layer's of excuses until you are exposed.  Those clothes you choose are trying to hide what is underneath? Right?

Start your journey to find true Health and Wellness  today

Sit still
and then Listen
and then Listen

NO one is going to take your hand to day and "make you do the right thing".

what is the right thing to do ?

RESPECT  Yourself

Take care of what is truly a gift

Every Breath you take
Every Heart Beat 
It's a gift

It's a gift of life

Allora, take care, get naked and have a great day!


oh my .... I've  got R U N now and live what I speak

This New Year starts "CLEANING HOUSE"

Starting the New Year with Energy and Vision!

Putting on my Apron and CLEANING UP!   Who want's to wake up to a mess?

Balancing   life is a full time task

The Theme for    for 2012  is  "CLEANING HOUSE "

Physically, Mentally and Spiritually

I choose to   clean up my body!
Remove and replace what may be flowing through me that is toxic.  Then Strength my body by "EXERCISE"  - go ahead Say it out loud.... It's a scary word but it'll heal you when you "do it".

And  then I need to Clean up my Spiritual House - go through all the closet's and drawers where I "may" be storing resentments, disappointments and fears and BAG IT UP and give it to the Lord. AND NOT TAKE IT BACK!  LET IT GO! for heaven sakes

Then I want to Clean up my "MIND" oh... yes....
Take the Files in my Brain that contain Incorrect information I have stored away.
 I need to throw away a lot of old "files" and replace them with files that contain truth.  Then choose to only allow thoughts that are True, lovely and of good report to be filed away.

Well,  Let me say Buona Fortuna to You this new year!  May 2012 be an amazing transforming year.


I like this article found  at
great web site.


How to Cleanse my System With Diet
Photo Credit vegetables image by cherie from
Much of our modern food supply exposes you daily to preservatives, extra sodium and sugar, pesticides and colorings. A cleansing diet intends to help rid your system of these offending items. You do not have to ingest supplements, magical drink concoctions or starve yourself to detoxify. 
Use simple diet strategies to help you cleanse your system.

Step 1

Eliminate caffeine and alcohol. Stick to water or herbal teas for the duration of your cleanse. Flavor water with slices of cucumber, fresh mint, lemon or lime.

Use fruits and vegetables for the foundation of your cleansing diet. Choose primarily watery varieties like dark green lettuce, sweet peppers, zucchini, asparagus, spinach, melons, apples, berries and kale.  Eat generous portions of these foods at every meal.

Step 3

Buy organic produce if possible as conventionally grown produce may contain pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers and chemicals that can be harmful to your body notes Raw and Living Foods.

Step 4

Eat small amounts of lean protein. Stick to fish and poultry for most meals, as even the Harvard School of Public Health notes these are the best choices for animal-based proteins. Opt for vegetarian protein sources like sprouted beans and soaked almonds--sprouting and soaking makes foods more readily digestible says Christine Dreher, C.C.N., C.C.H, on

Step 5

Consume whole grains like quinoa, brown rice, millet and amaranth. Avoid commercial breads and pre-seasoned grain mixes.

Step 6

Avoid all sugars, except those naturally occurring in fruit. Skip processed candies, cookies and cakes. Eat dates if you must satisfy a sweet tooth.

Tips and Warnings

  • You can undergo a healthy dietary cleanse for as long as you like. 
  • Be sure to take in a minimum of 1,200 calories per day as a woman or 1,500 as a man for nutritional support says Medline Plus.
  • Check with your doctor before beginning a cleanse.
