Berry Good

Berries, so delicious, so nutritious, but what is in the humble berry for your conventional grocer. Berries are one of the most heavily sprayed crops of fruits, treated with multiple herbicides, insectides and especially fungacides, metalaxyl, malathion, paraquat and the organophosphate chlorpyrifos. This equates to 7 known or probable carcinogens, 22 hormone disruptors, 12 neurotoxins and 6 developmental reproductive toxicants.

Organic Berries are berry good, no toxic cocktail to contaminate your precious fruit, worth every cent. Your health is worth it!!!

New Goals, a New Year

New Year…new resolutions. I believe in goals as a powerful tool that takes us from where we are to where we want to be. So make this year the healthiest best year yet. Health-=Energy. Energy means unlimited potential, so set yourself some new goals. Do you want to move more? Eat better? Have more energy? Spend more time with your family friends. DEFINE IT, then get to creating a plan to make it real. Health is the most important thing that we can control….

So some tools for creating your goals, make them:

S pecific

M easurable

A ttainable

R ealsitic

T imely

A SMART GOAL would be I will eat 5 servings of fresh organic vegetables a day, or I will spend 10 minutes a day doing exercise. These goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.
