Jonesing For Essential Wellness
The Jones Family is Making Many Changes!
There is so much beauty in spring and I am trying to soak it all in and not miss it while trying to sort through my messy basement! My new house has a magnolia tree right out my family room widow which prompted the background of this months newsletter.
While we are a very busy family we are also making a serious effort to take care of ourselves. I am including this info in our newsletter as a reminder to myself. Did you know that we remember 95% of what we teach others and only 80% of what we personally experience? Get out and teach others the knowledge you have been gifted with...if for no other reason then to remember it!
Daily Nutrient Pack
We eat a healthy diet as organic as possible yet we know that even making our best attempt is not good enough. Our food source is lacking what was present even sixty years ago. It is no longer the case that if you eat healthy...your body will have what it needs. We have bred our food to taste the way we like it and to look beautiful! The downfall to that is the we are lacking important vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. An apple in Nepal contains 100 time's more phytonutrients when compared to the average American apple. Many of your vegetables loose nutritional value very quickly, within days, they need eaten immediately after harvesting for us to get the maximum number of benefits from them. For this reason I encourage you to support Local Organic Farmers, not store veggies for long periods of time in your fridge, and fill in the gaps with a whole food supplement!
For Heaven's Sake Don't Forget Your Mother
Proverbs 31:25New Living Translation (NLT)
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
