Qigong Tree


Here’s a photo of the tree that we did our Qigong under. I hope this photo brings you back to that very peaceful morning.

Words of Wisdom

Dr. Lisa and Dr. John both talked with us about bread and juice. The two major points that I took away were…

1. Bread is not a health food.
2. Juice is not a health food.

We also learned that light, fluffy bread is super unhealthy. The best test of a loaf of bread is how heavy it is. “If you can use it as a door stop, it might be healthy.” Such a great test of the nutrition value of bread.

I had gone four days without any bread or grains and I feel great. I have not been tired or sluggish at all. I’d love to hear about everyone else’s experiences. You can leave a comment below so that we can all chat!

Big Test Day

Today, being a rainy Monday in Boston, is a big “test” day for me. Rushing to work is a challenge as is lunch. Usually, I dine on a high sugar yogurt and large coffee from my neighborhood McDonald’s (breakfast) and a super high sodium and high fat/low health value meal at The Cheesecake Factory or P.F. Changs.

Last night, I planned accordingly. I snacked on organic celery and no salt, organic peanut butter (Whole Foods freshly ground) on my way into work and drank 16 oz. of water.

Lunch is (also prepared last night) raw walnuts, watermelon (conventionally grown) grapes, blueberries (both organic), and an organic avocado.

I also brought one square of 80% dark chocolate with me for a snack.

Here goes nothing!!!
