Life is like a Camera. Focus on what’s important.


Hello Wednesday,

Life is like camera. Focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don’t work out, just take another shot and then if things don’t work out as you want, just take another shot. You don’t have just one possibility to try and test in life.

You have many possibilities. And even if you take tons of pictures, there will be finally a minimum of one, which is so amazing and you want to keep it forever. I always liked this message and today I felt impelled to share it.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”— Aaron Siskind


Hello Wednesday 🍁 yesterday is long gone for you to worry about, tomorrow may never be yours, but today is precious because it's you here. Anything is possible today 🍂 have a fantastic Fall Day.#inspiration#motivation#allthingsarepossible

This brings me to when Dan and I went on our 25th Anniversary to Hawaii several years ago, I took over a thousand pictures. I clicked the camera every second, for I wanted to have memories that would last a lifetime. Yes, I was able to enjoy the beauty that very second and now I can repeat this treasure every time I glance at the pictures.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”— Elliott Erwitt

Continuing blogging on INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 with what we left off yesterday, Whole Plant Food Supplements.

Aside from checking with one’s doctor before popping any new pills, a few helpful hints will steer you toward a healthful brand. Read on for expert advice about how to decode supplement labels and find the right fit for you.

4 Steps to Find the Best Plant-Based Supplements

1. First things first: Check for certifications.

Just because a brand claims to be “all natural” or “organic” doesn’t guarantee its ingredients are up to snuff. The best bet is look for a certification from a governing body. For instance, a bottle with a “USDA Organic” label lets you know that at least 95 percent of the product’s ingredients are truly organic.

Another good one to keep an eye out for: a stamp of approval from the Non-GMO Project, meaning the supplement contains zero genetically modified ingredients.

Those missing this label could contain pesticides.

Manufacturers need to renew these certifications annually. So, if you see these stamps on your brand, take comfort in knowing it’s been evaluated recently.

2. Look for words that show quality.

Along with symbols showing a product is USDA organic and non-GMO, certain terms denote a quality supplement. Raw foods have not been chemically altered, processed or cooked which preserves their enzymes and nutrients. Sprouted seeds also contain more nutrients, like fiber, and are low glycemic.

If you’re looking for a plant-based protein powder make sure the product contains branched chain amino acids, like leucine, isoleucine and valine, which promote lean muscle mass.

Finally, check the ingredients label. Make sure that all the food sources included in the supplement are, in fact, from plants and real foods.

3. Steer clear of the artificial stuff.

On the other hand, there are the phrases that suggest a product’s contents aren’t so high quality, plus they could potentially even harm your health. Pass on anything flavored with artificial ingredients or containing artificial colors.

You can also step away from “all natural” products, as that could mean it’s still grown with pesticides. Also, extracts, such as Stevia extract versus whole Stevia leaf as a sweetener, means you should pass, because extracts go through chemical processing. Step away from those with carrageenan, also.

This ingredient promotes inflammation and the National Organics Standards Board removed it from the allowable organic foods list in 2016.

You’ll also want to avoid hydrogenated oils, because they can increase inflammation and could possibly increase your LDL cholesterol. Others to steer clear of: magnesium stearate (which may prevent nutrient absorption and impair your immune system) and titanium dioxide (it can also affect your immunity).

4. Pick your pills or powder.

Tons of high-quality supplements flood the market. As always, check with your doctor before trying any new vitamin or supplement.

Already have some vitamins, protein or other supplements in your cabinet and not sure whether they pass the test? If you can’t tell from the label, one way to check: Head to the USDA site and search the brand name. The site boasts a comprehensive database. So, if your current brand doesn’t seem up to par, you can easily search for a new one.

I hope this helps, when you choose your supplements.
