Personal Notes: Greetings.
WOW – how did it get to be the end of October? My apologies that this is SO late in the
month. I actually wrote it earlier in
the month, loaded it up to go out and apparently never released it. When I was loading November’s
newsletter I noticed October’s was still sitting there. It made me think – what else did I
miss? What did I miss not only in
business but in my personal life as well?
We are all busy; but at what cost? I know this is a message for me
– and I will ponder on it for the next few days. You might do the same – what are you
missing by being so busy?

Yes, time IS a nutrition
tip. Take time to cook – cook
for you, cook for your family, cook for friends. Thanksgiving is around the corner –
start ramping up now. Taking time to
cook is like a “good house keeping stamp of approval” that you’re worth it. What could possibly be more important than
allocating time to YOU?

Balsamic Roasted Vegetables
vegetables (cipolline onions, fennel, leeks, zucchini, or any others)
and Pepper to taste
Oven to 400. Lightly oil baking
sheet. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar
over veggies. Roast until desired
texture (about 20 - 30 minutes) Taste, adjust seasoning – may want to
drizzle a little more balsamic over dish before serving
Vs Quantity By Brenda Jaeck,
You’ve heard the expression
– Less is more? Well,
let’s apply that to nutrition and healthy eating. People who consume less food live longer. If you live longer you can eat more
food. Therefore, less IS more.
The better quality the food, the less
food you need. Higher quality foods
provide more nutrients as well more flavor.
Your body gets what it needs with less food; your mind does the same. A few examples include organic foods,
whole foods, freshly prepared foods, water and everyone’s favorite food
– Organic food tastes better – more vibrant and alive. To test this conduct a taste test. Compare a regular orange with an organic
orange. Organic food contains less
chemicals and as such your body does not have to work so hard to dispose of
these useless materials. Rather, your body can concentrate on using the
nutrients contained in the food.
– Food that is closest to its natural form has the most nutrients and
fiber. It fills us up faster and takes
longer to digest; therefore we are satisfied and our nutritional needs are
met with fewer calories. Compare how
you feel eating a serving of brown rice (a whole food) to a serving of pasta
(a processed food).
Freshly Prepared Food
- Consuming food close to when it is prepared allows us to garner more energy
and nutrients from the food we eat.
Think about the energy in food that is lost during processing, storage
– We drink water to hydrate our bodies and to allow the elimination of
toxins. If you are drinking water that
contains toxins – it is defeating the purpose. It is best to drink bottled, fresh spring
or filtered water.
– I bring this topic up as I know it is near and dear to so many
people’s hearts. When you are in
desperate need of chocolate (and who hasn’t been) – it is better
to have one SMALL piece of good quality
chocolate than to continue to obsess about it. One piece of nice quality chocolate (one
that contains greater than 57% cocoa) will satisfy the craving better than a
whole bar of very diluted commercial chocolate.
In summary always remember to stop
and think about the quality of food that you are eating. Eat the highest
quality food possible. Your body, soul
and mind (and waistline) will thank you for it.
