Healthy groundwork

Here I plan to combine one facet of me that you know with another facet that I have become fascinated with over the past years. If you prefer to just look at my artwork, please continue. You may see more vegetables showing up in pastel, oil or watercolor!  If you want to hang in here for some very interesting posts on all topics focusing on lifestyle and my path, just be curious and enjoy…

It all started in 2011 when a friend in Tucson, Arizona introduced me to a film called “Forks Over Knives.”

This is where  you’ll see random of bits of information that I came across while searching for good nutrition and health. Follow other pages  for Books, Podcasts, Cookbooks, Recipes, People and Research that I find to be based on peer-reviewed science.

I see and hear information that supports my efforts on a daily basis. I’ll listen to a podcast when I go on a walk. Usually, I listen to Howard Jacobson, PhD who runs a website called “PlantYourself.” He has over 200 of them to learn from where he interviews the most engaging  and knowledgeable people.

Laying the groundwork for health seems to be the simplest, least costly and most interesting and enjoyable way to avoid many  of the chronic diseases of aging which depend on drugs, surgery and medical intervention. Basically, it’s all about prevention. If one finds one needs medical assistance in case of an acute situation, the laying of a healthy lifestyle benefits the recovery immensely. I recall it was Benjamin Franklin who said “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

One day I chose to hike the Boucher Trail from the Elephant Seal rookery in San Simeon to Piedras Blancas Light Station. A pleasant 1.9 mile hike. I just love being out-of-doors. One of the healthful things I do.
