Summer Solstice Sipping Secrets


OK, by reading my posts you have figured out I am a whole food enthusiast, correct?  I put the best whole foods, grown locally and sustainably, into my body.

Now what’s a gal to do when she wants a tasty drink on occasion?  Last eve was such an occasion: summer solstice and the weather was perfect. Time for a backyard fire and like-minded girl friends to celebrate the longest day of the year.

Most alcohol drinks are bad news.  Pre-mixed stuff is full of awful ingredients: artificial colors and flavors, corn syrup, and who knows what else (Think pre-mixed screw drivers or marjaritas).

Naked Sun Time!

Hello Friends In Health and Healing!

Happy Summer Solstice, Happy Summer SUN Time!!

Vitamin D is essential for our body’s functioning… every cell of our beautiful bodies! Vitamin D is actually a hormone. We know what happens when hormones get low or out of whack; this has far reaching effects on the whole body, mind, and soul.  Think PMS!

Another Hormone D  issue that was brought to my attention as a public school teacher:  cognitive issues around low Vitamin D levels.  A student was having great difficulties understanding and following simple instructions and directions and was found to be quite low in Vitamin D.

HELP! Desperate Plea from a 1/2 Crazed Cat!

Hi, my name is Frost.  I have a BIG problem and I need your help.

First of all, we all know that pets are healthy for humans, correct?

  • lower blood pressure
  • reduce stress
  • promote longevity AND longevity with vibrancy!
  • lower rates of death in human who have pets
  • stronger immune systems
  • stronger cardiovascular system for dogs who walk their humans (humans benefit here as well!)
  • etc., etc., etc.

OK, this is my problem.  There is this dog in my cat dominated home.  When my human takes said dog (picture coming soon) for a walk, it gets the damned beast out of my fur for a while.  By the way, this makes the other cats who live here happy as well.

PLEASE, PLEASE read the rest of the post here: 1/2 Crazed Cat

My sanity depends on your swift action.  Thanks, Frost
