I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

I'm reading this interesting book on 14 "Superfoods". It basically says "eat THIS", not "don't eat THAT", which I like. ;o) I'm reading about each food indepth right now (in the book) and I'm on the 4th food. The information is so interesting that I thought I would list the 14 foods here, in case anyone was interested!

Beans (this includes green beans and peas, as well as kidney beans, lentils and other types) Eat one cup per day.

Blueberries (he says to eat 1/2 - 1 cup per day)

Broccoli (or broccoli sprouts, which I may try)




Wild salmon (eat 3 times a week)

Soy (I'm not at that chapter yet, but it should be interesting!)

Spinach (That's easy - I don't eat lettuce - I just eat raw spinach on my salads)

Tea (That one will be a struggle for me...) (He says green or black tea.)

Tomatoes (He says tomatoes in sauce is fine - whew!! I don't like raw tomatoes!)

Turkey (skinless breast)

Walnuts (or other nuts and seeds, like sunflower, pumpkin seeds, pistachio nuts, etc.) He says a handful several times a week is what's needed.


Obviously, I'm not through much of the book yet, but these foods are EASY to incorporate and I'm really going to give it a good try. My diet pretty much stinks (though not as bad as some I know...!!) and this would be a really easy way to make it better, since I love most of the foods listed. I'll let you know how it goes!

[P.S. I know NOTHING about copyright laws so if I've said anything that I shouldn't in this article, please let me know and I'll delete it.]

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
