Life is Good!

Life is Good!

(My personal background with this topic: I had breast cancer and a double mastectomy back in July 2014. I felt the fear, but I have strongly moved on from that fear and you can too!)

If you or a loved one has just gotten a cancer diagnosis, I want to reach out to you with this article to let you know you don’t have to be afraid. Of course you will be in the beginning. We are conditioned to fear cancer because we think it means death. But, I want you to know that you have enormous hope for a high quality, healthy, even long, life in your future if you want that and are willing to listen to the message from your body and take action to heal it.

Chopped Salad for Better Nutrition

Chopped Salad

My Aunt Bridie and Uncle Frank from Galway, Ireland introduced me to the chopped salad this spring. I’ve always loved salad and never thought that a salad could be so delicious and magical, so boy was I surprised when I ate their chopped salad.

Here’s the most exciting part: a chopped salad delivers far more nutrition than a regular salad. The reason is by chopping it you make more of the nutrients available for your body to absorb. When we chew salad we do a woeful job of actually tearing it apart enough to glean all the nutritional benefits.

The other reason why this chopped salad is more nutritious is because of the big variety of greens, sulphur based, and colorful veggies you’ll be getting which is right in line with the highly regarded advice by Dr. Terry Wahls on how to eat for your health.

Here is my version of it. I hope you love it and please let me know your feedback in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook. Continue Reading →
