Quick Salad Recipe

Since 2007, I have had to do a complete overhaul on my diet as part of my healing journey.  I basically had to adopt a new lifestyle of eating.  It hasn’t been easy.  As I’ve had to try all kinds!

From The Maker’s Diet to RAW foods to The Colon Diet to Macrobiotics to Nourishing Traditions to Paleo to Mercola Diet to Body Ecology to Blood-Type Diet, and a Partridge in a pear tree!   LOL  ;-D   Got to find some humor in all of this sometimes!

I will be blogging about this in another post.  As I’ve learned the pros and cons, and how all of them have some good in it.  It’s just a matter of finding what works for me. And what will work for you.  As we are all individuals and have different needs.

In the meantime, I want to share this quick salad recipe.  As I’ve had to learn to eat MORE plant based foods with a small amount of animal protein.  And this is a great recipe when you have little time but still need to eat a healthy, nutritious meal.  Anyone can prepare this easy recipe!  It serves one person but you can modify it.


– 5 leaves of chopped organic romaine lettuce
– 1 to 2 medium sized chopped vine ripened tomatoes
– 1/2 of a local cucumber (chopped to your liking)
– 1 whole sliced avocado

– 1 cup of Organic Quinoa & Kale Blend by Good Grains (I got mine at Costco)



– BRAGGS Organic ACV

– Himalayan Sea Salt

– Black Pepper


– Follow directions on the bag of the Organic Quinoa & Kale Blend.  You can also prep this ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

– Place the veggies in a good size personal bowl.  According to the order listed.  Topped with sliced avocado.

– Add the cup of Q & K Blend (optional:  place in a small ramekin or small bowl to create a smooth shape)

– Mix the dressing in a bowl.  Drizzle over the salad.


You’ve got yourself a hearty & nutritious lunch.  And packed with Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s fatty acids.  We need a good balance of these two healthy fatty acids to avoid disease and simply keep us functioning!

Bon Appetit!  😉



SUJA known about you a long time ago!

Simplifying the array of store-bought juice in the market today has truly become a challenge!  As the market has exploded with so many varieties that now it’s harder to figure out which one to choose.

After juicing/blending EVERYDAY for almost 5 years now, I’ve learned from mistakes I’ve made in the past and learned how to do it the right way.  So to recently have found SUJA I was totally sold!  As the way they keep the integrity of the juice.

And honestly, there are days I cannot juice/blend so it’s nice to have some already made.  So am thankful I’ve found SUJA juice as in my busy days, I can just grab and go!

The things one needs to ask when a company claims to sell 100% juice are:

– Organic


– Cold-pressed

– HPP (High Pressure Processing)


And I like the fact that this new company supports organic and sustainability.   A famous blogger, Food Babe, said it best.  Spreading awareness about how our food is produced and which companies we should support will change the marketplace!

If you are interested in more detailed information on how to pick the best store-bought juice, read up on this link prepared by Food Babe.


And here’s the link to SUJA.

Secretive Attempt SB 110 (SB 3058) Defeated in Hawaii!!


Soon after two recent county bills were passed in Kauai and the Big Island, state legislatures tried to circumvent it by introducing a bill that would’ve wiped out regulating Genetically Engineered (GE) crops and pesticides.   A policy dictated by the state, not the people of Hawaii.

But the efforts of MANY  in Hawaii put a stop to it!  More and more of us are getting educated and are more aware of how there is a need to put a stop to this madness.  Below is the link by Center for Food Safety for the full story.


So many countries already reject GMOs.  See link below.  And from all my reading, research and my own personal healing journey, I am more convinced today that GMOs have NO place in our bodies!
