Lots of Good Things This Week... Come take a Peek.

This has been the first positive week in about 4 months. Some of you know my legs have been swollen since Mid March of this year.Traditional doctors and medicines just could not find out why or get the swelling to go down. I visited every doctor on my list and everyone ran tests and simply told me to rough it out. 
By accident Marty and I met a wonderful doctor and his wife one Saturday about 5 maybe 6 weeks ago and found out about the Wellness Institute in Frisco. We went to visit and talk with Dr. Ferrell and after bloodwork and other testing we decided to give Non Traditional medicine a try. Let me rephrase the we know this is the way to go and I started treatment there. It's a really cool place and I feel like I am among friends.

I have been going once a week and doing some PT there and having adjustments. That in itself was wonderful. Last week I started on natural supplements. It is amazing how different I feel. I looked at my left swollen leg/foot and realized that although it is still swollen it is not as painful and doesn't look like a balloon.

Am I still just juicing? Well no. I am juicing, drinking smoothies made from kale and other veggies with a small amount of fruits as well as adding in other protein like Quinoa to my diet during the week. No milk products, processed food at all.

If you live in the Dallas/Ft Worth area and you want to move your live in the right direction I would highly recommend visiting the Wellness Institute in Frisco. eMail me if you want to meet Dr Ferrell for one of his informational dinners.

Summer Dairy Free Dessert

I received peaches and bananas in my bountiful basket this past week and since I am Rebooting I decided to create a healthy easy dessert. It is so simple and easy to make...and of so delicious. 
Take 2 peaches that are cut in half and pitted..Freeze them.
Cut 2 banana into slices. Freeze them.
Place your frozen peaches and bananas into a strong blender ,Vitamix or Ninja.
Pulse. If your "Ice Cream" is to thick add a small amount of Almond, Rice or Soy Milk.
Don't over pulse or your "Ice Cream" will become to thin.
Scoop and enjoy.
This made 4 servings for all depends on the size of your fruit.

Nice Health and Oh So Easy Summertime Treat.
