Imagine, if you had an organ that took up 2/3 of your body, it would be huge. You would have whole sub-specialties dedicated to it, entire universities, and reserachers and hospital whatever. It would be a big deal. But that's what water in our body. It's 2/3 in our body. In fact infants have 75% water and for elderly, it moves down to 60%. So you see the shift.

So today, I’m going to talk about making your own Kombucha. If you’ve been around very long, you might know that I love gut health and Probiotics. Probiotics is important because they are good bacteria that you take in. So, when you take antibiotic, you kill all the bacteria in your gut. So, you want to repopulating your gut with good bacteria. Your gut is the main portion of your immune system and you want to nourish it all the time.

I want to talk about quick and easy recipe made of Bokchoy. Bokchoy is something I didn’t know anything about until a few years ago when I went to a really authentic Chinese restaurant. We had dimsum in which they bring little containers of food around the table and you pay by the item. One of the items that they brought on, probably my favorite item was Bokchoy!

These tips are actually from one of my favorite motivational speakers and it’s a little bit more my version today. Couple of days ago, I posted a photo on my personal page that says: Decide, today will be a great day! You can decide and have a great day but how are you going to do that?

I am travelling these next couple of days because I’m working with School Food Directors for workshop. Few years ago, the USDA put some new regulations for school lunch program that they have minimum for meat and meat alternatives served at lunch, grains and breads. And they also have to serve colorful variety of vegetables each week and they have to offer fruits and vegetables each day.

Just this year, I start making Agua Fresca and it’s like a fruit lemonade basically. You can use any kind of fruits aside from watermelon. I have 2 cups of watermelon and 2 cups of water and I throw some mint on it. I’m squeezing half of a lime and blend it up. You can put dash of maple syrup to taste really, really good!

So why do people use alternative milks? Well, because of food sensitivity, food allergies and people’s food preferences. A lot of people maybe follow a paleo diet or auto-immune protocols or they may be looking for anti-inflammatory diet protocols. And at that time, they might not consume regular dairy milk.

Part of being happy is being productive. Productivity is not something that comes easy to me but it’s really trial and error. I grew up not very organized person. And so I tried to work really hard to work on that. I found something lately that really helped me. So, I just want to share some of those things.

Seriously, habits are so powerful. Whether we’ve put much thought into it or not, I bet there are so many habits we want to develop. Habits can make or break your days.
For example, have you ever found yourself in the middle of a project that shouldn’t take long, but ends up sucking away all your spare time and energy for days? It can get you into a real funk. That was my story this week. I had a job contracted to help develop some training for foodservice directors. Although I enjoy the work, the mounting requests kept me burning the candle from both ends, inevitably compromising some habits I find vital to my happiness. I’m talking a little more than brushing teeth, but everything suffered.
Let’s face it. Habits can be the source of happiness, or the source of self-destruct mode.
But it got me thinking about a podcast I listened to on...
