Copy of Start With Your Food

So, your doctor stopped "suggesting" to get healthier and bluntly told you that you MUST get your cholesterol and blood pressure down if you wanted a shot at a long life. 😕

If you are like me, you feel frustrated, concerned, anxious, and guilty because I don't want to take pills to fix something I can (and should) do myself. But when you research what to do, it gets even worse as you see all the diets, supplements, extreme exercise routines, and shaming that's out there. Maybe even tried some and given up because they were too intense and expensive (and annoying). 🙋‍♂️

Dorothy (my Mom) taught me that food can be medicine. Remarkable things can happen if you just return to eating real, whole, healthy food and make some simple lifestyle changes. We can't promise anything, but it worked for my Mom, and it's working for me. Best of all, these simple changes don't have to be extreme, time-intensive, or expensive. Here's where to start:

  1. Cut out processed food: fast food, food in a box, diet foods, etc. It's hard at first because we're accustomed to being able to just grab and go. But the more convenient and the more processed, the worse it is for you.
  2. Eat Dorothy's Power Gruel™ (you can make it yourself - ingredients and the instructions are on the site) five times throughout the week, as a meal or a side dish.
  3. Read my Mom's 9 rules and try to apply them, even add your own!
  4. Do this for two weeks and see what happens! You're going to notice a difference in your energy, how you feel, and your digestive system will thank you.😬

Dorothy's Power Gruel™ delivers the protein, fiber, and nutrients your body naturally wants, with far more nutrients per bite than a typical oats, rice, or quinoa serving. Just look at this nutrition label and compare it to a bowl of oats!
