Enjoy this video and learn about Trees for Health!

Here is the video I mentioned in a previos post that did in a park that was actually closed, but was not being enforced and now it is back open for a few weeks.

If you are still unable to go outside, at least you can enjoy the beautiful nature I share in the video and there are some suprise visitors, too!

For those who are “stuck” inside, here are some photos of my walk in Balboa Park

Hope you enjoy these beautiful photos took of different flowers and also an amazing tree, to give you something different to view, instead of watching all the news because we need things to uplift our spirits and boost our immune system. I will be posting a video on my youtube channel shortly of my walk through the Trees for Health Garden at Balboa Park and will share that here once it is posted.

I was talking to my Mom yesterday and gave her the idea to do a google search for flowers, birds, gardens and also videos, so can see beautiful things and make you feel better, if can’t go out for a walk as I can. Also, if you have a porch or way to sit out and get some fresh air and look at the trees, flowers and birds do that daily. Finally, smell some things that make you feel good, if you have any essentials oils like lavendar, peppermint, etc.

Please share your positive stories/experiences during this time

I have faith in a Higher Power and feel loved and protected and do not put any significance to anything else and remain calm, cool and collected.
Be safe, be well, be happy, be healthy!
If we stay positive it keeps the immune system strong.
Sing a song that makes you feel good.
Dance around by yourself of with your children.
Do some arts & crafts you like, but never had the time to do like coloring, needlepoint, etc.
Being silly is also good – make funny faces πŸ˜‹ 😬 πŸ€“ 😜 in the mirror, make animal πŸ’ πŸ•ŠπŸ“ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ• 🐈 noises and talk gibberish by making up you own language. This will keep your spirits upbeat!
If you ever heard of “laughter yoga” – now would be a good time to practice it. Look it up online, as I am sure there are videos to show you how to do it.
Even if you have the virus 😷 πŸ€• πŸ€’, staying upbeat and smiling 😊 πŸ˜„ will help you get well faster.

Giving Thanks & Showing Gratitude for everything we have is also very important

Check out my youtube channel for my series on Vegan Real Food Bars

I have found some great food bars that are great to have on hand when you need a healthy snack, afternoon/anytime energy pick me up, after exercise, for all ages and all made from real food ingredients. Some are higher in protein and also have beneficial nutritional profile, including important vitamins and minerals, like calcium, iron, etc.

Week 4: June 22 through June 28 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Week 4: June 22 through June 28 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Still eatings lots of Puffed Corn and I am having small amounts of products with salt and oil, but not to excess. The items with oil are from the food demos I do, so I am not personally purchasing anything with oil in it. My future plan is to try and keep the consumption of products with salt and oil to very minimal amount overall in my daily consumption. As for sugar, I do not consume any products with cane sugar and very minimal with maple syrup, as use mostly coconut crystals/nectar and stevia.

It was an accomplishment to not eat anything at all with oil, salt, sugar and overt fats for 31 days and honestly, when I started, did not know if I will be able to see it through to the end, as I had products around that fell into those categories and could have “caved in,” at any moment, but wanted to stay true to myself, stay strong with my conviction and know I could do it. I did not have anyone around to motivate me, but myself, so have to self-motivate, self-support and find other things could snack on when got hungry that stayed in line with the program was adhering to.

If anyone decides to embark on a change in their life of any kind, it is good to have other around to motivate/support you and definitely seek advise from a medical professional if this is related to your health and have a pre-existing condition because as much as it would be great to just stop taking a medication, etc there can be a more deleterious/negative affect on the body by doing so. As the saying goes, “slow and steady wins the race,” and in this case it would definitely be so. One thing (of many) I was blessed with in life by G-d, is the ability to persevere and align my mind to do something and stick with it, like I have done previously with various types of fasts and cleansing regimens that have documented on this blog.

Wishing you endless blessing & success in your journey to superior health & wellness!

Week 3: June 15 through June 21 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Week 3: June 15 through June 21 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Not that much to share this week. I continue to eats lots of Puffed Corn & Kamut Puffs, as was eating during the 1st month. I did have a cracker product that had oil in it, that used in my food demos. I did not get a bad reaction, but only had a small amount of crackers. For the most part am staying away from oils, except for those and do not have often. I guess it really is hard to break habits, even though was very strict about it last month. I have had some crackers with salt in them, too.

I will continue sharing for 1 additional week.

Week 2: June 8 through June 14 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Sorry for the delay in posting this, but was not able to log into my account for a number of days and was in contact with wordpress and they were not able to help me and today on its own, I was able to log in. 😊

Week 2: June 8 through June 14 – modified S.O.S. Free Plan

Nothing has changed since last week, except, I am staying away from oil in products that had in some crackers last week and do not use consume any oils in my own food preparation. I have had products with salt in them and maybe more then I ought to, but do not see anything different in me physically and since have not taken any blood tests before, during or after, is hard to say for sure, although those numbers are not necessarily relevant to me as a long term whole food vegan, as they are standardized for the general population who is not eating the way I do. I am consuming snacks with coconut sugar and maple syrup, but not in large quantities. I will post again in a week and let you know if anything changes.

You are welcome to leave any questions or comments.
