Inflammation is the cornerstone of most chronic diseases. Juice Plus has created a cutting edge, very powerful blend of deflaming Omegas that are sourced sustainably, bypassing the fish and the toxicity of the ocean. They are 100% plant based and vegan from cold pressed seeds and berries as well as algae that is cultivated in controlled vessels. A blend of omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids from pomegranate, raspberry, sea buckthorn, tomato, safflower and algae function synergistically to support brain, eyes, heart, skin and general circulation!!!! Who wouldn’t want that?

Happy Sunday!
Don’t you just love 🌻sunflowers🌻

Did you know that 🌻sunflowers🌻 turn according to the position of the sun. In other words, they “chase the light.” You might already know this, but there is another fact that you probably do not know!

Have you ever wondered what happens on cloudy and rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds?🤔

This is an interesting question. Isn’t it?

Do you you think the 🌻sunflower🌻 withers or turns its head towards the ground. Is this what crossed your mind?

This is what happens:
They turn towards each other to share their energy.🌻✨🌻

Nature’s perfection is amazing. Now let’s apply this reflection to our lives. Many people may become low-spirited, and the most vulnerable ones, sometimes, become depressed.

How about following the example of the beautiful 🌻sunflowers🌻 by "Supporting and empowering each other". Nature has so much to teach us.

Wishing everyone a "Sunflower"🌻 trait of turning towards each other on their cloudy and gloomy days.

Spread goodness...it will come back to you...

Here’s a treat that won’t bankrupt your immune system, but instead will help support your family’s health.
.
These CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANA BITES are slightly sweet, and can be dipped in your favorite nut or sunflower seed.
.
If you have Juice Plus+ chocolate Complete handy, experiment and use the powder along with or in place of the cacao powder for the added benefit of 15 more immune supporting plants.
.
This is a recipe your family can enjoy making together!
.
Drop pictures of your family enjoying your finished treats below, or share on FB and tag me, please! Love it forward and help your friends take back their health!

.
If you’re like me, you want to know WHY this is a good trade out for sugary snacks. Check out these ingredients that can help power up your health.
⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️
.
.

All the sweetness comes from naturally occurring sugar, which is accompanied by numerous health benefits, so it’s a win-win by switching out a sugary treat for this.
.

BANANAS are an great source of antioxidants, fiber, potassium, magnesium, & resistant starch (feeds your Good Gut Guys & a healthier guy can mean a healthier immune system). #bananas are great for helping you feel full & can be a good snack when maintaining a healthy weight.
.

CACAO is one of the richest sources of polyphenols, which offer significant health benefits. ⬇️ inflammation, improved cholesterol, heart & brain health. #cacao may also improve moods & symptoms of depression.
.

PEANUTS are packed with healthy fats & high quality protein. They’re low in carbohydrates & have a very low glycemic index (measures how quickly carbs enter bloodstream after a meal). #peanuts are also an excellent source of various vitamins & minerals: biotin, copper, niacin, folate, manganese, Vitamin E, thiamine, phosphorus, & magnesium.
.
COCONUT OIL is considered by some a #superfood. It contains healthy fatty acids that can help encourage the body to burn fat, and can provide quick energy to the body & brain. #coconutoil May have antimicrobial effects that kill harmful pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi).
.
JUICE PLUS+ COMPLETE is loaded with 15 minimally processed plants that support immune health, a healthy weight, among a host of other benefits. It’s not necessary in this recipe, but anytime I can power up the number of plants I consume, I am going to experiment with it, because #morematters!

What a great idea a friend had....

I’ve started freezing avocado! I mash them up and I use a small cookie scoop. Then freeze! They don’t turn brown AT ALL and when they set up firm in a few hours I throw them in a gallon ziploc bag. I don’t add anything to them. No more nasty brown color or throwing expired ones away. I freeze about two bags at a time. They thaw beautifully too. Try it!
Plop a scoop in your smoothie. Avocado is a healthy fat, good for the heart & brain.

From my friend Kris.....A story of encouragement and amazing strength.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, I humbly give you the story of my two time battle with this deadly disease as well as my recent breast restoration surgeries. The details that follow are meant to help anyone who is fighting cancer or knows someone who is — or for anyone who wishes to prevent it. My story is full of struggle and triumph, but most importantly, HOPE.

Thanksgiving morning 2004 I found a lump. I was 34 years old, a vegetarian since college, no signifiant family history of breast cancer, and an active stay at home mom. Skyler had just turned 5 a couple days before and Devon was two and a half. I knew what I felt in the shower that morning wasn’t there 3 weeks before. We soon learned this was a very aggressive and fast growing breast cancer that would require significant treatment. When I say this rocked our world it is an understatement. Yet after six months of chemo and multiple surgeries including bilateral mastectomies and implant reconstruction, life seemed to get back on track.

Thanksgiving 2005 our family went to Disney World to celebrate the end of cancer, and we stopped to see a friend in Tampa. Molly told me about a simple way I could improve my nutrition by consuming raw, powdered produce conveniently packaged in capsules. What? I was already a vegetarian and ate plenty of plants. But ok, who wouldn’t benefit from getting more plants in their diet? — especially in the entire rainbow of color I knew I wasn’t consuming consistently each day. So began my journey with concentrated, dehydrated plants we know as Juice Plus+. Little did I know then, this simple decision was going to have a profound impact on my life.

Back in OH, my new “normal” consisted of pouring myself into raising my family, and working closely with friends to lead a huge Relay For Life team in Aurora. The decade our family was devoted to Relay taught me so much about the power of team — namely, the ability to make a bigger difference when you united your efforts with others who shared a common goal. Our community came together, both adults and children, to raise awareness and raise money in the fight against cancer. And boy was it incredible!! Some of you reading this right now worked along side me and my family or donated money, goods or services to be a part of this mission. I can never thank you enough for helping such an important cause. ❤️❤️

In private I was experiencing an ongoing battle with my choice for reconstruction: implants that looked and felt more like deformed baseballs than breasts under my skin. We tried multiple surgical procedures to fix the scar tissue contracture and at least make the implants more comfortable, but were unsuccessful time and again. My body simply disliked these foreign objects. So in Sept 2008 I entered the operating room again for a 10 hour microvascular surgery where they would harvest tissue from my abdomen and build new breasts, hooking up the transplant to a blood supply in my armpit. Only there was a major problem. When they opened up my armpit they could SEE obvious disease in the lymph nodes residing there. Many of them. So they quickly sewed up the hip to hip incision they had just cut, and called in a surgical oncologist to do an auxiliary dissection — the removal of every node they could find in my armpit. I woke up from that surgery to the devastating news I had more cancer and needed to see my medical oncologist ASAP. What??? We had NO idea another storm was brewing, let alone that is was this advanced.

The days that followed felt even harder than the first time we heard the terrifying words “you have cancer”. Because at this point, no one had a clear path to victory. I met with 4 different oncologists from 4 different medical centers and they each had a different opinion about the best course of treatment. Wow. With no medical background whatsoever, I needed to “pick” what plan looked and sounded the best. Being just 38 and having children who were now 8 and 6, I opted for the most aggressive combination of treatment options available. More chemo, radiation, surgery.

But here is the BEST part: even though the cancer was in my lymphatic system and actually carried a worse pathology than the original diagnosis in 2004, it seemed to have been living quietly in my lymph nodes in my armpit — for years. In other words, it didn’t show up anywhere else on my scans. No detectable metastasis. Why?? I know my doctors expected it would have spread. But it hadn’t. The truth is, there was no logical explanation except God and this nutrient dense rainbow of plants I had started consuming every day almost 3 years earlier. This reality motivated me to LEARN so I could become my own health advocate like never before. What else could I do to improve my “statistics” and increase my chance of survival?? Clearly western medicine had its limitations since it left cancer behind the first time. And dealing with it the second time was obviously going to be trickier since no one could agree on a treatment plan.

I will NEVER forget sitting in my oncologist’s office at the Cleveland Clinic and asking him, no begging him, for advice on what I should do nutritionally to help beat this. And then his shocking reply: “it doesn’t matter what you eat, the end result with be the same”. Ok no. Just no. Even without much knowledge yet, that statement made absolutely no sense to me. So he was saying, if I went home and ate nothing but fast food, ice cream, candy and potato chips, my body would be just as capable of fighting this cancer as if I ate cabbage, broccoli, and berries? It was this man’s ignorance coupled with my passion to see my girls grow up that fueled my leap into the world of nutrition and lifestyle habits — and my gut instinct that the choices I made could aid in the destruction of a disease that needed to STOP. What I learned was this: “fruits and veggies aren’t just good for you, they are SO good for you they could save your life”. So I was all in!!

Macrobiotic cooking classes, wellness consultations with experts who understood the connection between nutrition and disease, reading books and studies about the power of plants to help the body heal—from anything, including cancer. Next I began researching other things like the impact of stress on the body. I learned that stress increases free radical damage and fans the flames of disease. My new knowledge propelled me into action. I found it super empowering to develop routines and habits such as eating all kinds of plants — even things like kale, daikon radishes, and squash which I had never eaten before. I said goodbye to dairy and refined sugar when I learned they caused inflammation and created an acidic Ph balance that cancer loved. And I started practicing yoga regularly and receiving massages to help manage my stress and flush toxins out of my body. I prayed and asked God to use me and my story to bless others. And I surrounded myself with positive, kind, and inspiring people who made me feel hopeful. I hung out with friends who had a great sense of humor and made me laugh. And I locked arms with health minded leaders who supported and encouraged me to continue making choices that would restore my health, not tear it down.

Remembering to breathe through life’s struggles and let go of hurt; pray more and worry less; exercise regularly — anything from walking, to yoga, to high intensity classes like kickboxing; staying mindful of what’s on the end of my fork; as well as simpler habits like slowing down at meal time to thoroughly chew each bite — this eases digestive work and increases nutrient absorption. These habits have become principles of healthy living that I still make a priority today. By NO means do I do everything perfectly. But at this point in my health journey I try to practice the 80/20 rule — and by God’s grace it seems to be leading me in the right direction.

Fast forward to this past May, just a couple weeks after our family moved back up north from FL, I learned that my miserable implants were ruptured and leaking a significant amount of silicone. While I had promised myself someday I would try the transplant surgery again to get rid of the implants once and for all, I was not expecting an emergency type situation —especially during a pandemic!! Covid, plus a long distance move, plus no health insurance outside the state of FL. Not ideal to say the least. But God showed up AGAIN in my story: insurance was found (even with my preexisiting conditions), Covid changed the health insurance waiting periods so I could literally be in the operating room just days after my new plan kicked in, I found an incredible surgeon in New Orleans who specialized in tough restoration cases like mine and had a sudden opening in his busy schedule, and flights that had been cancelled to and from New Orleans due to Covid suddenly started flying again. My head was spinning but this was happening!!

I was humbled once again when I processed the fact that my chest had been filling up with this sticky, very toxic substance for who knows how long, but my health remained intact!! I have read countless stories of women who have suffered major health issues due to leaking silicone, and yet I was completely fine. Why? My conclusion: plants protect! I have been flooding my body with SO MANY PLANTS for 15 years now and I was prepared for this health crisis. My immune system, my lymphatic system, my cardiovascular system, etc. were all working optimally and keeping me strong until we had a chance to discover and fix this problem. In fact, it reminded me of when I had a “fire” in my armpit 12 years earlier but had no signs it was there until a surgeon saw the cancer with his naked eye.

Thank God I had a friend 15 years ago who told me about an easy way to bridge nutritional gaps in my diet with powdered produce in capsules. And let us not forgot the yummy shakes, bars, gummies, and produce I can grow on my Towers! I truly don’t know where (or if 😢) I would be today if I hadn’t taken that one simple step to improve my foundational nutrition. We know from all the published research that JP immediately went to work reducing inflammation, neutralizing free radicals, strengthening my immune system, etc. These scientifically proven changes started my journey to better health and protected me when I needed it most. And little did I know back then, but saying YES to Molly connected me to an ever growing community of wellness advocates who have helped educate and encourage me to make additional changes to bolster my health. Amazing blessing in my life FOR SURE!!! And many of these special people are here in this group!!! ❤️ Thank you one and all!!! 😘🤗😊

Simple truth: the more plants I eat the better I feel, and the better I feel the more plants I want to eat! 🌱 I can attest that our cells crave what we give them and mine truly crave plants now! But the key is to keep things simple and stay consistent. I have learned it is not as important how much of one particular plant you eat, as it is to consume a wide variety of plants that can work synergistically together. Yes we know 1/2 our plate at every meal needs to be fruit and veggies (choosemyplate.gov), but it can’t just be carrots and bananas every time. Our cells need to be nourished by ALL of the colors from the plant world for optimal health!! Simply put: remember that quality matters, not just quantity.

As for my recent surgical update— Given the complicated nature of my situation, it took two planned surgeries to do all that needed to be done. One in early June and the second in mid Sept. Words can’t express the gratitude I feel for my surgeon in New Orleans as well as the wonderful staff who took care of me. I feel every woman who faces breast cancer deserves to know about the Center For Restorative Breast Surgery in NOLA. They are the pioneers of this field and well worth the consult/trip. And to my sweet family — I am SO thankful for the incredible love and compassionate nursing care I received at home from Hunter, my girls (now 20 and 18), and my parents. These past almost 16 years have had plenty of ups and downs, but with your support I have gone from surviving to thriving! And who ever expected that problems with my immune system that I endured since my teens and 20s, such as animal and seasonal allergies, would also disappear with this overhaul to my diet and lifestyle? Now at 50 I feel better than I ever did in my 20s and 30s — and I’m so SO thankful.

Well, if you made it to this part of my story I am truly impressed!! This is my longest post EVER. But as I said in the beginning, perhaps hearing some details of my journey will bring hope and encouragement to those who need it. And I always welcome the opportunity to personally connect with anyone who is struggling with their health or needs support. I am here for you. Maybe you also need a group of positive, supportive people to rally around you as you focus on your own health journey, be it cancer or otherwise. For many years now it’s been an honor to be part of a dedicated group of wellness warriors who devote their lives to helping others improve and protect their health. We keep each other on track and pick each other up when we fall. 🙌🏻💪🏻 Together we can make a greater impact and pay forward whatever we can, whenever we can, however we can. I am humbled and grateful to have found such a wonderful community of people who are making a difference. And YOU can be part of this community too!! Just ask the person who added you to this Healthy Living group 🙌🏻❤️🤗

We need an army to change the way we think about wellness in this country — a shift that focuses more on building fences at the top of the cliff rather than the ambulances and treatments at the bottom. But I believe it’s possible!!! We have way more control over our health than we ever realized — in fact, 75% of chronic disease is preventable with diet and lifestyle choices. It’s encouraging to know that more and more medical professionals are starting to understand the connection between disease and nutrition. No one should EVER be told by a doctor that it doesn’t matter what you eat because it won’t change your outcome. That’s just wrong!! IT MATTERS. A LOT. I am living proof.

My strongest advise — don’t wait until you are in a health crisis to make important changes. Let’s take action and PROTECT our health BEFORE something goes wrong!! Prevention makes a lot more sense than letting diseases develop that can significantly impact or even take our lives. And as I think my story demonstrates, treatment is tough and can leave you with changes to your anatomy you’d rather not experience. So PLEASE, let’s prevent problems and stay well!! We can do this together!! 🙌🏻❤️🙏🏻🥦💪🏻🍅👏🏻🧘‍♀️😀

Thank you for reading to the end. God’s blessings to you and your families. 🙏🏻
