Hey, there. Our Covid-diminished summer’s here. Time to shake the cobwebs off your front door and get out.
Is It Legal?
Wonder no longer!
Can you name this drink?
Let this information be a reminder to you, just in case you’re tempted at a barbeque, a picnic, or at the beach this summer.
Guess what this drink is, a drink that was originally formulated as a mixer to pair with whiskey: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), concentrated orange juice, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium benzoate, caffeine, sodium citrate, gum arabic, erythorbic acid, calcium disodium EDTA, yellow 5.
As we head into the heat of summer, we hope this information encourages you to drink more water! Scroll to the bottom of this newsletter for the name of this beverage.
There’s no tellin’, but Trigger might have lasted a lot longer with pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy.

Not Suitable For Work
That title may be a bit dramatic because this function is a natural process for all of us. And getting rid of the distinctive scent is a $7,000,000,000 (that’s seven BILLION dollar) industry. We have emojis for it, we work to figure out what to do with it when we are camping, it is one of the daily discussion topics for moms and dads of young children, etc. What is it? Read the article for enlightenment and tips on best ways to get things moving.

It’s A Sign
The real sign is if you have no garden and there is little or no produce in your refrigerator crisper or on your kitchen counter. Help can be on the way!

Every season brings unique delights to savor and joys to discover.
For a myriad of reasons this year, including renewed hope, renewed strength, this spring season is especially welcome!
Donna and Ron’s Spring Tower
April Fool’s Day is annually also spring Tower Garden seedling planting day for us.
We plant on April 1 to harvest into the fall.
Here’s this year’s April 1 planting picture:
- Ron plants the seedlings in an arrangement for optimal growth
- Donna is adhesive label maker, so as the growing season progresses, we can tell the difference among 3 varieties of tomatoes, two varieties of cucumbers, and a host of other fruiting plants, lettuce and herbs.
Did you know growing aeroponically (without soil) gives you the same results as ground gardening without some of the challenges of wildlife and bugs?
But as with a traditional garden, you must grow smartly to achieve optimal results.
Click on the link below to request a beautifully illustrated free 141-page e-book offering specifics on growing (or not growing) 37 categories of plants aeroponically.
Even if you don’t currently grow aeroponically, it’s an interesting read.
We Need a Cure from Convenience
Have you been raiding your cupboards like a vending machine?
Big Food is feeding our snack addiction, says Michael Moss, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist.
In the early days of COVID-19, manufacturers of cookies, crackers and chips saw sales jump nearly 30% as people loaded up on items they hadn’t had since childhood. And now, the companies aren’t about to let us go.

Hey, there. As we begin to break out from our year-long isolations and prepare to once again function beyond four walls, the internet and streaming, here’s to reconnecting with the rest of the world on health.
Be A [Healthy] Citizen of the World
In March many of us have tended to be a wee bit Irish, eating more “Irish-centric” foods (which may be different from our usual fare,). Let’s use that as a reason to travel around the world via other countries’ plant-based cuisine. There are so many options — this article will help you think about why it’s a good idea to try new foods. Perhaps your definition of what healthy eating is will be expanded.
Article excerpt: “Google the term “examples of healthy recipes” and you’ll notice there’s very little variety in what healthy eating looks like, and that the definition of “healthy” is pretty narrow.”
Speaking of the world: did you know that Juice Plus+ is now available in 23 countries? Including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Middle East—Dubai, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

Another Way to Be a (Healthy) Citizen of the World
The Bemer Pro-Set Go microcirculation device fits in a small backpack and travels anywhere: the beach, a mountain campsite, a youth hostel (sell sessions to fund your travel?), or think big, a 5-star international resort.
Juice Plus+ is available in 23 countries, Bemer in 42. We are healthily on the world stage with both.

A homage to the simple potato. Baked, air fried, broiled — our spuds are amazingly versatile!

In this article, Dr. David Katz eloquently details why our diet is more vital than ever. The sobering statistics he cites include: heart disease alone kills 650,000 Americans every year. That’s 1800 of us, every day. Poor diet alone stands out among the behavioral, root causes of premature death as the now undisputed number one cause of death, killing 500,000 of us prematurely every year.
And the good news: recently a committee of the American Heart Association recognized the significance of diet as a veritable vital sign, calling for its assessment with every patient. Changing our focus from avoidance of chronic disease conditions to maintaining “chronic health” may be our solution.

Breathe the New Year In
Invite the new year in with this simple breathing practice. If it works for the stressful situations the Navy Seals encounter, it’s good enough for me!
- Breathe in for four seconds.
- Hold air in your lungs for four seconds.
- Exhale for four seconds.
- Hold your breath, lungs emptied, for four seconds.
