Old Ideas are Good Ideas

Are any of you old enough to remember Jack LaLanne? My mother watched him and exercised with him in the morning when I was growing up. That was many, many decades ago.

He is the “Godfather of Fitness”. He really helped to empower women (see the video in the link) and is still impacting people’s lives today with his juicers, etc.
Mr. LaLanne had a list of “10 Things To Do To Have a Happier and Healthier Life”. Guess what? These 10 things are being “discovered” by people today! He’s been telling people about this list for decades and people are just now discovering the power of these 10 things…. crazy.
Well – here is what Jack recommends…..
1) Exercise
2) Good Nutrition
3) Positive Thinking
4) Good Habits
5) Good Grooming
6) Smile (to everyone)
7) Watch your posture
8) Help Others
9) Relax (as in meditate….)
10) Have Faith
So, if you’re looking to have a happier, healthier life, you may want to look at some of these “old ideas” that people are just now discovering!
Namaste and be well….

My 10 Wonder foods (and why)

Does anyone have 10 Wonder Foods they think you should eat and if so why? Here’s the list we have at Pathway Partner….

1) Whole Grains – They are an inexpensive way to enjoy protein, minerals fiber and B vitamins.
2) Legumes – They are rich in folic acid, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc and antioxidents.
3) Quinoa – Is high in protein and a good source of iron.
4) Organic Vegetables – A rainbow of colors is best. Red offers you lycopene to help fight cancer and promote hearth health. Green is also an anti cancer compound.
5) Berries – They are high in fiber and vitamins.
6) Nuts & Seeds – They are rich in protein. Some offer omega 3, vitamin E, calcium and promote a healthy heart.
7) Salmon – All fish offers protein, however, cold water fish including herring and mackerel are some of the best sources of omega 3.
8) Citrus Fruit – They contain flavonoids that lowers production of cholesterol. These fruits also contain vitamin C.
9) Olive Oil – This is an excellent heart healthy fat that will help lower bad cholesterol and raise the good one.
10) Tea – Black, green, white or oolong are all great antioxidents and help protect against heart disease, strokes and certain cancers.

Eating Well for Living Well

We all know that the old line “you are what you eat” is true, so why can’t we apply it to our everyday lives? I myself have a hard time, from time-to-time, to live this motto and I am a holistic nutrition consultant!

We all have many outside influences that can be negative or positive that will effect our food decisions daily. It’s important to try and do the best that we can to eat well every day. I think one thing we can all try to do is to keep fresh, organic and hopefully locally grown food in our homes. As soon as I get home from the store or farmer’s market, I try to wash my produce so it’s available for anyone in the house to eat right away. I make a big salad and keep it in the fridge so I will eat it for 2 meals per day. It can be very time consuming to do this each time I shop, but the end results are really worth it.
This year my family joined a local CSA (community serviced agriculture) in the Metro-Detroit area called Maple Creek Farm. I indirectly know the owner from some very good friends of mine who have participated with the farm for years. I am so excited to get my weekly pick-up which starts in June! This year they will offer two sizes of harvest…. a 3/4 bushel and a 1/2 bushel. My family has decided to start with the small harvest and we are going to try to grow some of our own produce as well. Check out their website at for more information.

Be well…..


It seems to me, that more and more people are looking for ways to reduce stress. We all know that this economy has really hit some people hard in the face, my family included. Many people are so stressed out right now that it is causing illness, panic attacks, overeating just to name a few unhealthy additions to their lives. What can one do about this added stress that is low cost and easy to do? Meditate.

I teach mantra meditation in the Metro-Detroit area and have for several years. Many of my students have been instructed by their doctors (it’s about time) to learn how to meditate or else they will have to face medication to “fix them”. Many of my students have been able to stop taking medications they were prescribed because they have been able to see positive results from their meditation practice.

Meditation is something you can do anywhere, anytime. YOU have all the tools you need to practice meditation with you at all times. All you really need is to have an instructor that can not only guide you through the process, but who can also be there to follow-up and answer questions that may arise.

If you would like more information on the classes I teach, please feel free to contact me at Keep in mind that I am in the Metro-Detroit area.
