Color Your Plate

This season, bring on the colors of various foods and give your belly a real treat! Your plate should POP with wonderful colors because there are a wide array of nutrients in each food color. They have particular attributes that lend to health and wellness. You can find out more info on these attributes by checking out The Color Wheel here.

Please be mindful not to overcook plant-based whole foods because you can actually destroy the vital nutrients that are present. Food was divinely designed to sustain you, so being careful in it’s preparation is vitally important. The Eternal has designed the plant kingdom in Divine Intelligence to protect you against illness and disease. And guess what??? It’s an awesome exchange! You feel better, house more energy, and gain more clarity! Plant-based whole food is absolutely delicious when it’s prepared properly. That’s why it’s important to heat at low temps instead of frying or microwaving. If you desire to use the microwave, check these very important tips. Here are some additional kitchen traps to watch out for as you are making your holiday plans.

Bitters Are Delicious!

Giving all honor and praises to our glorious Power and our Mighty Elohim! HalleluYAH!
Bitters include a wonderful range of delicious foods that we can easily pick up at the grocery store. They can be incorporated in the regular meals and make them different and add a little variety and flavor to your normal meals. In addition to fantastic flavors, bitters are great for the digestive system. They come in a wide variety and include both fruits and vegetables. You may enjoy some bitter foods more than others, so pick from an extensive list and taste away!


*Also, if you are under doctors care or pregnant, you will want to first talk with your medical advisor. This information is not medical advice. Your doctor is there to advise you and help you manage your health, so be sure to discuss it in detail before you make any changes to your diet.*

You will want to incorporate a calendar and stick to it. If you need coaching, contact me. Get on board with a program that will help you reach your goals naturally, stimulate your immune system, gain clarity and align your body systems… naturally with bitter fruits and veggies.

Read Genesis 1:29 over and over in different books in different languages even… until you see what is between the lines! Let us take HIS instruction so that we can manage through our health crisis.


Here are a few bitters that were discussed on shabbat: Broccoli Rabe, Daikon Radish, Parsley, Chamomile, Artichokes, Ginger, Dandelion… Look them up, study them and see if you can incorporate any of them into your regimen.

Taking The Time

Hello Friend!

Just checking in on you to ask a question. Have you taken the time to power up? Do know what means? It means cutting out a slice of time for you. We get so regimented and bogged down with busy work that we forget to take the time to smell the roses! Life is a gift and each day we must allow ourselves time to embrace that gift – even if its for just 15 min.

I want you to read how important meditation is to your health and wellness. Then I want you to click this link below and follow me on this exercise . Don’t worry about getting everything right, just take time to do it. Breathe into it. Modify it so it fits your level of ability. After you are done, right me a reply on how that felt.

Exercise the lungs is extremely important right now. What you put into your body is equally important. Wake up with water to wash away all the junk and start fresh. Water is  cleansing. It’s amazing in its simplicity.

OK, just these two things… follow me in the exercise each day for one week and wake up with a glass of water. Then send me a reply to tell me how you feel.

Peace & Light~

My Health Spot Topic Today

Health Spot Topic: The Holistic Approach to Corona Virus
Presented by Akote Adirah (a.k.a. Shona Williams) 28Mar20

This week we reviewed the holistic value of meditation. I facilitated a meditation session focusing on breathing and being present. Mediation is medically proven to have signficant effect on a number of diseases. I talked about the value of having a whole food, plant-based diet and including Vitamin C, D and herbs like Garlic, containing allicin, in the daily regimen. We also reviewed the importance of citrus rinds which many people throw out. You can actually cut up the rind and use for cleaning surfaces like the sinks and counters. The rinds may even be minced and sprinkled in the salads and desserts to get that extra boost of Vitamin C.

Vitamin D is another nutrient that experts say is essential in the battle against the Corona Virus outbreak. Taking a walk, reading a book or exercising in the sun allows you to soak up a hefty dose of Vit D absolutely FREE.

It is imperative that you brace yourself to face this virus. You can’t hide from germs. They exist everywhere and they are not sure exactly how they are spreading. The following are ways to keep yourself healthy:

-Get out in the sun (observe social distancing)
-Keep you skin peelings on ginger, turmeric, potatoes, carrots, etc
-Drink hot lemon water
-Utilize organic citrus rinds in food and cleaning
-Meditate at least 20 min daily
-Prepare fresh food
-Avoid processed food fake food, fast food and food that promote inflammatory response
-Join us for ‘Build Your Own Garden’ April 26th – start your herb garden now 🙂

The body is an amazing machine and can absolutely protect itself against any disease given the proper food intake.

During the quarentine, take advantage of the time to find a creative platform to express your Yah-given talent. This is a stress reliever and not only benefits You but Others who are touched by your creative expressions. Write, Dance, Build, Design, CREATE!!! So let it be written…

Be well and stay protected! Stay informed by visiting the official COVID 19 website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Shalom v’Or,

Cancer, Be Gone! Book Club

Today I am reaching out to inspire my network to start to learn about the power of food and how to approach your meals with a new mind set! This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what a wonderful way to inspire and motivate women to prepare their meals with a healthier and strategically scientific approach to combat cancer.

People normally don’t look at food as science. But why not? The body is based on science. It is a wonderful and dynamic machine that is set on automatic from your CONCEPTION!! So now, why dont we look at the food as fuel to keep that machine running effectively and efficiently as it was designed??? It’s like taking care of your car. You lube it, you wash it, you send it in for inspection, you get it detailed, you do all this with the highest quality products and services in mind because you want it to perform at it’s maximum level. Well, that same idea holds true for your body and the foods you put into it. We are captains of our own ship. We have to decide what is right and what is wrong for our bodies. I think this book club will help in that decision-making process.

From July 17th through the end of August 2019 I interviewed a host of educators, doctors, nutritionist and cancer survivors to power up my coaching business and start a community that I can serve. The experts that I interviewed not only shared their knowledge about cancer, but also their personal testimonies and experience with the disease. I wanted to get people to understand that there are options to overcome this challenge. We as a people need to know ALL the options, and if food is one of them, I can certainly open your mind to that redemptive approach because I LOVE FOOD! I also love the science of food and how it can recalibrate your body systems. So, I asked these notable experts to allow me an interview that I could share with my community. I asked them questions pertaining to their expertise and asked them to elaborate for the sake of the listeners. This was all done systematically so people could log in and watch the interview. When I say testimonies can change people’s perspectives, I mean it! Living testimonials, cancer survivors, very powerful!

The series can be purchased at http://www.cancerbegoneseries/purchase

As a follow up, I wanted to maintain momentum with this new found knowledge and build upon it by exploring the information these educators offer us to maintain a healthy diet and a positive spirit. Our first book is by NY Times Best Selling Author, Joel Fuhrman, M.D. Fast Food Genocide. With the rush of our daily lives, it is important to slow down when it comes to food and be very circumspect in our food choices, ESPECIALLY for cancer patients. This book provides not only information about the contaminated foods we eat, but studies and recipes and meal plans that can get you started right away! Like NOW! You are that important that everything in life can wait for 15 min to order this book and jump on board this food redemption plan! It starts now. It starts with opening your mind to realities of food that you never knew.

I will be sharing some new material very very soon!

Until then, choose wisely and protect yourself from the inside out…

EAT TO LIVE!!
