MY MOM AND GRANDMOTHERS  WERE GREAT COOKS BEFORE FOLKS WENT TO COLLEGE AND THROW BIG WORDS AROUND.

BEANS HAS THIS THIS STUFF IN THEM NOW AND HAD THIS STUFF IN THEM BEFORE THESES WORDS WERE INVENTED.

PROTEIN, FIBER POTASSIUM FOLATE  (FANCY WORD THAT DESCRIBES SOME KIND OF ACID).   

WHEN WE BUY BEANS IN CANS AND THEY MAY HAVE BEEN ON A SHELF TOO LONG- THEY PROBABLY HAVE BEEN MESSED WITH AND NOT AS GOOD AS THEY SHOULD BE.

I DO NOT TRUST LABELS,BECAUSE THE CREATORS OF LABELS TREAT US LIKE MUSHROOMS. MUSHROOMS ARE KEPT IN THE DARK AND COVERED WITH MANURE.

READ THE INGREDIENTS . IF THERE ARE THINGS IN THAT LABEL THAT MAKE NO SENSE AND OR IF THERE ARE BUNCH OF INITIALS IT IS PROBABLY  "NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

NOW LETS EAT BEANS.

EAT BEANS AND PEAS AS ADDITION TO THE SALAD. SOUPS , OR SIDE DISHES. CORNBREAD, BEANS AND ONIONS IS MY FAVORITE.

 

BE CAREFUL WHEN BUYING CANNED BEANS. SOME SELLERS BUT TOO MUCH SODIUM AND OTHER STUFF. LOOK ON THE CAN FOR NO SALT ADDED BEANS.

IF YOU GOT TIME FOR PREPARATION , USE DRIED BEANS , WHICH NORMALLY HAVE NO ADDED INGREDIENTS.  SOAK THE BEANS OVERNIGHT OR BOIL FOR ONE HOUR BEFORE ADDING THEM TO YOU MOM'S OLD RECIPE. 

CONFESSION TIME

I HAVE NEVER COOKED BEANS IN MY LIFE.  NINETY NINE PRESENT OF ME BEING SMART IS KNOWING WHAT I AM DUMB AT. I GOT THE INFO FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUTRITION EXPERTS WHO IS A RUNNER.

I AM AN EXPERT BEAN CONSUMER

HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY DAY


CEREAL FOR BREAKFAST

 

 

IMG_0743START WITH A HANDFUL OF SHREDDED WHEAT. 

*READ THE INGREDIENTS. ALL THE OTHER CEREALS HAVE TOO MANY OTHER THINGS THAT ARE NOT GOOD FOR US

IMG_0745 ADD FRESH AND FRESH FROZEN FRUIT TO SUIT YOUR FANCY.  MAKE IT YOUR CHOICE INSTEAD OF LETTING THE FOOD MARKETING PUN-DENTS FEEDING YOU WHAT THEY GET PAID TO STUFF IN YOUR BELLY. HOW ABOUT BANANA SLICES AND GRAPES.  NOW FINISH UP WITH ABOUT A HALF CUP OF ALMOND SILK. 

START READING INGREDIENTS ON ALL THE FOOD PRODUCTS. IF THERE ARE INITIALS AND NAMES YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND, THAT IS A GOOD WARNING NOT TO BUY IT.

 HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY BREAKFAST 


The End or the Beginning?

This is the time of year when school ends. The celebration is Graduation or is it Commencement?

I graduated from college in 1954. I had been drafted but the start time in the US Army was deferred until I graduated. I graduated, got married, drafted, had basic and advanced training, shipped oversea to Japan and got my wife pregnant. Oh, I went AWOL one weekend of Basic Training to do that little job. Was the last Half of 1954 the end or the beginning of my commencement?

Two teachers answered that question for me and changed my life forever. Ethel Reno, my third-grade teacher taught me a bunch, but I will always say three words she demanded that I always use and do. “DO IT NOW”.

I had great college teachers, but Prof Hall changed my life forever. He taught me to be a great public speaker and debater. Every time I did good, he said “NOW DO IT BETTER”. These five words have given me direction from the beginning and ending of every day since. I BETTER DO IT NOW. NOW DO IT BETTER.

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure what it is you love-who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams” - Oprah Winfrey.

If you are not happy with what you are doing right now, here is my advice.  If what you do right

now, after giving it your full effort for at least 18 months, is not making you happy. QUIT and go do something else. Since 1954 I have been in at least 16 different businesses.

Steve Jobs’ famous commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005 when Jobs encouraged the students to peruse the path they really love. “Your work is going to fill large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it.  And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So, keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

If you are just a kid or over 60 find your passion. It will make your heart sing. Your passion is not a hobby or a fad. It is intense. You will want to share it with others. I inform, educate and inspire by writing and talking. My talk is called MY STORY.

  DEPENDING ON THE  INSTANT  GRATIFICATION DIET AND MAGIC FORMULAS  GAME IS A SHORT TERM FIX.

BEING HAPPY AND HEALTHY IS A  SLOW CONSISTENT CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE.
