Hello Everyone,

This months feature movie for Movie and a Smoothie will be “Heaven Is For Real” 

 Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.

 Health Tip:

Observe portion control during holiday meals (and all year round) to avoid holiday weight gain.  This allows you to enjoy all of your favorites and quality time with family and friends, avoid the bloated post-meal feeling, and still fit in to your favorite pants or dress for all of the upcoming events and gatherings the season brings.  The attached link from is an excellent tool to help you use your hand as a reference guide when filling your plate.  After all, you’ve always got at least one hand “handy” so there’s no excuse for overindulging this year!

Cleansing Cranberry Smoothie

Cranberries are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, but perhaps best known from their cleansing powers. They help clear toxins and plaque buildup from the body by cleansing the organs involved in elimination and the lymphatic system.

Cranberries are also known for offering protection against urinary tract infections, supporting the immune system, benefiting the cardiovascular system, and for their anti-cancer benefits.

Something I like to do whenever I deviate from my normal eating habits for a couple of days to a week, like Thanksgiving and other holiday meals, is eat clean and use naturally detoxifying foods.

Toss a little lemon in and you’ve got a one-two cleansing punch.

This smoothie isn’t overly filling, so you could add a banana to beef it up, but is light and refreshing and helps decrease the transit time, or time it takes for waste elimination within the colon.  That’s a very good thing for overall health!

  • When our only reality becomes emerged within an “exaggerated importance “of material wealth we feel a certain lack and so, we desire more and more to fill this void.  In truth the material riches of this illusive reality we have created cannot fulfill a spirit robbed of the unseen treasures that are life’s true gifts.  May Peace, Light and Love surround you and yours always, D
