The light from the full moon on this clear southern California night is illuminating on many levels. This is the first full moon of the year or the last if you go by the Chinese calendar. This moon is lighting the way of my new addition to my product line. A wonderfully potent Pine Pollen Tincture! Spring has hit early here and they are now ready! I have gathered enough for three batches. It will be a limited run. Come back to the site shortly to be invited to pre-order. It will be ready on the next Full Moon! Valentine's Day! May the light of the Full Moon guide you through the dark and show you something amazing! Be well.
Yes, I am talking about the four basic food groups! This trend started after I completed my first half-marathon. My training partner said she wanted to make breakfast after the race with all the four basic food groups to which I responded "Cool, Sugar, Fat, Caffeine, & Alcohol!"

Many years later during the introductions in my nutrition class, which quickly turned into a dietary confessional (dear father forgive me for I have eaten a doughnut last year during a moment of weakness....). People were claiming that they wished they would eat less of this and more of that... wanting to be vegetarian, vegan, raw, detoxed, or the ubiquitous "eat more healthy". I was tired of hearing people whine about the burden of having abundance of food choices by the time my turn came. When it was my turn, I said "I am an omnivore, happy to be on top of the food chain! My four basic food groups are (you guessed it) Sugar, Fat, Caffeine & Alcohol!" I received a round of applause for that. We live one of the most abundant times on this planet. I am grateful for all the choices I have. When a patient asks for advice on diet, I say eat as much real food as you can. The simpler the better. The least processed the better. The more local the better. Organic is better! Enjoy your food, enjoy your life! Eat well 90% and the other 10%..... Enjoy guilt free then get back to what is best for you!..... Food is not meant to be Dogmatic, it is meant to nourish, replenish and to be enjoyed! Here is a link to a "food" that contains all 4 of the basics....
