Oooo lala, folks! This is sweet awesomeness! 🍓🍓
Now that #strawberry season is in (well, not the real strawberry season, but the grocery store season), this is the perfect, easy dressing to spruce up a boring #salad rut that happens too often this time of year (at least it's been happening to me anyway).
-1 Cup Fresh Strawberries, chopped
-1/4 Cup Light Olive Oil
-2 TB Lemon Juice (squeeze it yourself or cheat and use bottled like I did)
-2 TB 0% Greek Yogurt, plain (or regular plain yogurt or use heavy whipping cream)
-1/4-1/2 tsp salt to taste
-Sweetener to taste (I used #Stevia)
Whir it all up in a blender or food processor til it's all smooshy and pretty in pink. 
Make a big salad of mixed greens, cukes, carrots, jicama, smoked turkey, or whatever else floats your boat.
Enjoy and roll your eyes while saying "mmmmm" a lot while you're chowing down! 🍓🍓

I have a doc appt on Monday. My former doctor supported my herbal efforts. She left. I saw one of her replacements last check up 6 months ago. It was a head butting session. I see another doc this time. I don't have any idea where this new guy stands. Lots of fear. -
I've spent a lot of time wishing I could "show" the doc that #herbs and nutrition and being responsible for my own health really works. Been asking God to vindicate me there. -
But God's been telling me that none of that matters. He had and has a purpose in my #stroke and he WILL accomplish that whether I get to "show" anyone anything. -
He's given me hope that he'll turn this horrible event into something beautiful. What happens at Monday's appointment doesn't change that. -
What #doctors think they know is not the reality. What I think I know isn't the reality. #Jesus is the only reality. -
God has spoken.

Having a stroke is not fun. But there's things medical caregivers and hospital workers can do to make it easier. Just some leftover thoughts and feelings from my time in the hospital and therapy 2+ years ago. 💛

Be a prepper! No, it's not a conspiracy theory I'm talkin 'bout. A health apocalypse of one kind or another is always imminent, even if it's only a cold. So, it's important to make deposits to the bank of your body; deposits of vitamins and minerals, that is. Vitamins and minerals are stored up in the body and put away for the day when you might need them. So if your body is prepared w lots of stored up vitamins and minerals by eating healthy food on a regular basis while you're not sick, then ....when the apocalypse of sickness comes knocking, your body will be ahead of the game and prepared to fight. Eat junk food constantly and you'll have no storage put back to kick the illness.

Everyone knows sodas are fattening. But, opting for #juice instead isn't any better. Some juices have as much or more #sugar than a #soda. Juice is liquid carbs and with every gulp you pour on the pounds and even if you're one of those peeps who stay skinny you could be sabotaging your #health in other ways. Anything in liquid form is more readily absorbed into your blood stream. Juice can cause an #insulin response similar to soda. Glucose levels surge through the roof. High sugar throws the body off balance and encourages #yeast and #parasite growth which in turn, over time, can create a perfect environment for #cancer growth and all #disease. Same for Sweet Tea, Gatorade, Red Bull, Starbucks, Beer, etc. (sorry to be a #killjoy 😕). Even if you're not #diabetic these drinks pack on the pounds.

Colds and Coughs! 🤒😷 Ugh. In our neck of the woods, the weather has been so up and down and back and forth 🎢 that folks are having troubles getting rid of illness. But! As we recently discovered, this humble, ordinary kitchen herb 🌱could be a game-changer!

"Care is something other than #cure. Cure means "change." A doctor, a lawyer, a minister, a social worker-they all want to use their professional skills to bring about changes in people's lives. They get paid for whatever kind of cure they can bring about. But cure, desirable as it may be, can easily become violent, manipulative, and even destructive if it does not grow out of care. Care is being with, crying out with, #suffering with, feeling with. Care is #compassion. It is claiming the #truth that the other person is my brother or sister, human, mortal, vulnerable, like I am. When care is our first concern, cure can be received as a gift. Often we are not able to cure, but we are always able to care. To care is to be human." -H. #Nouwen

13 Possibilities Why #Herbs Might Not be Working for You
(in no particular order)
1. Poor #diet (too much sugar/sweets & processed foods, not enough #fiber)
2. Bad lifestyle habits (addictions, prescription abuse, lack of exercise, etc)
3. Too many #chemicals in the system (detoxing necessary)
4. Improper doses (larger doses aren't necessarily better, but too small a dose is obviously not going to help) 
5. Improper #herbal preparation (most herbs are more potent in some form other than pills)
6. Giving up too soon (takes consistent dosages at regular times for sometimes days/weeks for herbs to work best)
7. Taking the wrong herb for your constitution (people typically have herbs that work for them and those that don't)
8. Low quality herbs (true of many over the counter herbal pills)
9. Expecting herbs to function like drugs (taking one or two doses and then saying it doesn't work)
10. Not getting enough #sleep (proper #rest is very important for health)
11. Not hydrated enough (water flushes toxins from the body; most Americans are dehydrated)
12. Too much #stress (learning to eliminate stress brings peace to the #mind and soul, and thus, health to the body)
13. #Immune system overworked and needs to reboot (try #fasting for 3 days)

Haven't felt much with it lately. The sick stuff is getting better slowly, but still hanging on just a bit. Would love for some motivation to come back. Kinda tired of being an Eyeore. 😛
