Cold-Press Fruits and Veggies

We starting watching this movie with Joe Cross called, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.”


This guy weighs a ton and goes on a 60-day all juicing diet.  


He stops all the food and just carries his juicer with him everywhere making fresh fruit and vegetable cold-press. 


While obviously a little extreme, I like the idea of reducing the food intake (especially everything gluten which is death itself), and replacing it with healthy juice. 


I tried one of the super green juices and it literally tasted like eating grass. 


Uh, that’s not gonna realistically work for me. 


So I settled on Evolution’s Organic Super Fruit Greens that has a combination of orange, mango, pineapple, cucumber, spinach, romaine, and kale. 


I actually like it and am sitting here sipping on one as I write this blog post. 


I went into the fridge and threw all the carbs in the freakin garbage–good riddance!


Gotta get and stay healthy!  😉

Shabbat Risk

I haven’t played Risk in years. 


But my daughter and her husband came for Shabbat, and we sat down and had a great game. 


We distributed the countries. 


Placed our enemies. 


And went to battle, army to army. 


By the time it was over, my daughter had conquered Europe, Africa, and North and South Americas.


It was so good to see her taking country after country from my son-in-law and me. 


My son-in-law joked that he had underestimated her. 


We had a good laugh and nice time just sitting down at the kitchen table and playing a board game. 


Afterward, we went down to the pool and relaxed in the deck chairs and then my wife and I took off our shoes and walked in the grass in the garden. 


I laid down on the beautiful green lawn and looked up watching some planes jet over in the clear blue sky. 


It was absolutely beautiful weather and a marvelous day today with my family. 


In the morning we went to Synagogue and the sit-down kiddush with our friends.


I am grateful to G-d for all this and for the peace of the wonderful Shabbat! 


Also, what more can a man ask for Father’s Day. 😉

Lying Down and Looking Up

So yesterday, we did something that is really fun for me…

It was such a magnificent sunny day out. 


The air was slightly warm, but at the same time there was a refreshing cool breeze.


We went outside, and just laid down in the wide open grass and looked up into the sky. 


I put some music on for us from the iPhone and just let it all sort of be.


There was a father and son flying this beautiful kite that looked like a huge butterfly. 


There was other people riding bicycles and running.


It seemed so freeing to be in the open space under the big blue sky. 


And to have the blessing of time and the luxury to relax a little and enjoy it. 


Thank you G-d for your mercy and wonderful gifts that you bestow on your people. 😉
