THIS WEEK WE ARE CONTINUING ON THE NEW SERIES, DON’T LET YOUR ALARM CLOCK, BE THE ONLY REASON YOU WAKE UP AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE HERBS – ASTRAGALUS.


Hello Followers,


Happy Saturday!

What is everyone doing this week-end?


Life is meant to be one big adventure, so get to exploring.


Become daring and start saying yes to things you always talk yourself out of.


Learn a new skill such as gardening, or even more adventurous like skydiving.


It’s time to treat yourself like royalty.

Do you beat yourself up over things that happened in the past?


If so, then you need to stop that immediately.


It’s time to forgive yourself and stop living in the past.

If you don’t show respect and kindness to yourself, then how can you expect someone else to?


How can someone else see how awesome you are if you can’t see it yourself?

JULY – 16th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about July that’s so significant during this month?


Fresh Spinach Day – July 16, 2022

Fresh Spinach Day is celebrated annually on July 16 to emphasize the many health benefits of fresh spinach.


It’s not all fantasy that Popeye gains superhuman strength after consuming his canned spinach.

Because, in reality, spinach can boost your health.


From improving bone health to lowering the risk of cancer, spinach got you covered.

Fresh Spinach Day reminds you to add this healthy leaf vegetable to your meals or smoothies.


Creamed spinach, spinach dip, sautéed spinach, green smoothie; strongly yummy.


Spinach is said to be originating in Persia, and it was later brought to India and China via Nepal in 647 A.D.; known as ‘Persian green’ in China.


Spinach was then introduced to Sicily by the Saracens in 827 A.D.


It was later brought to Spain by the Arabs in the late 12th century, called the chief of leafy greens.

It then spread to England and France in the 14th century, known for a while as the Spanish vegetable in England.


In the U.S., spinach became popular in the 1800s. In the 1930s, there was a boost in spinach consumption due to the fame of Popeye.


Spinach has three main types: flat-leaf and savoy.

Flat-leaf spinach or smooth-leaf spinach features flat and smooth leaves, hence the name.


This type is typically grown for freezing and canning.


It grows faster and yields more, and it’s easier to clean.


On the other hand, the savoy type, with curly and crinkly leaves, is preferred for the use of the home garden and fresh market.


It usually looks and tastes better and keeps longer than flat-leaf.


Besides, it has less oxalic acid than flat-leaf.


There’s also semi-savoy type spinach whose leaves are partially curly and crinkly.

Spinach is rich in nutrients, raw or cooked.


If you consume raw spinach, you’ll likely absorb more folate, niacin, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin C.


Raw spinach is packed with fiber and water.


And since raw spinach is quite flavorless, it’s easier to blend with sweet smoothies.

When it comes to cooked spinach, you’ll likely absorb more of the iron and calcium that it provides.


Besides, the amounts of vitamin A and E in cooked spinach are increased.


So, whether you consume raw or cooked spinach, it will still give you the nutrients that your body needs.

Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.


Today is:


ANYONE WHO MAINTAINS AWARENESS IN THE PRESENT MOMENT BECOMES BEAUTIFUL AND NATURALLY EMANATES PEACE, JOY, AND HAPPINESS.

Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.


Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.


A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 17; WHEN YOU WANT TO HELP


WHEN YOU NEED OUTSIDE HELP-


Select the style of counseling.


THE GOAL is to find ways to team together.

So go to a counselor and ask:


1. Is what I feel crazy?

2. How can I overcome my feelings so I find solutions?

3. What is normal?

4. Are my actions/reactions helping or hampering?

5. How do I become proactive?

6. How long should I continue on in this situation?


Tomorrow, PARTNERING-

Continuing on the herb; ASTRAGALUS and the benefits, It’s the last herb from the book ALCHEMY OF HERBS by Rosalee De La Foret.


Astragalus has such a mildly sweet flavor.
