In “The Great Physician’s Rx for Health and Wellness”, Jordan Rubin breaks down the food groups into what we need to know most, and what we’ve missed the mark on with fad diets.

Fiber: indigestible remnants of plant cells from fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, & beans

  • Promotes colon health if found in low-carbohydrate, high-fiber foods (broccoli, cauliflower, soaked/sprouted seeds, nuts, grains, berries, celery, greens, & fruits)
  • Not enough fiber increases time for the colon to eliminate (think glue stuck on colon walls blocking vitamin/mineral absorption)
  • Soluble (oatmeal, nuts & seeds, beans apples, pears, strawberries, & blueberries
  • Insoluble – reduces risk of colon cancer (whole grains, barley, brown rice, cereals, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes)
  • We usually get 10 grams of fiber but should have 20 – 30 per day

The Creator’s Basic Food Groups – Part 3

I’ve been blogging since 2002, but have been rather inattentive to my blogs.  I even laid out the best plans for several sites.  I run a few blogs, with the intent to keep the focus of each rather clear:

  1. Beginning Momentum – focusing on network marketing & home based business
  2. Completely Alive – focusing on wellness education and information on my health coaching program
  3. Web20iGoBlog – a blog on emerging and informative social media uses online, prelaunching an online class
  4. A personal blog that shares my faith and what I’ve been learning lately
  5. This blog – a slight catch-all for my varied interests

With all these sites going on (and, no you don’t need multiple sites unless you want them) – I was great at setting them up – but lacking in posting.  This must change. Also, I want to optimize my views by syncing all my blogs to shared output places like FriendFeed and Facebook Notes.  This way more people can read my content.

I’d love input from you.  With my varied interests in business, technology, wellness, personal development, leadership, faith- is my blog best served to include a catch-all of all these topics?

As a great tip – here’s a video I did on importing your blog posts automatically into Facebook.


Nearly a year and a half ago I was invited by Dave Saunders to sign up for LinkedIn.  As any compulsive social media joiner, I created my account, and then abandoned it.  I hardly paid notice of it, until just the past few months that is.

What led to the switch?  Well, the obvious part about teaching it to others in an upcoming online training program means that I first must understand, apply, and implement LinkedIn.  More importantly than just teaching it, I now have see how to help other businesses get noticed by participating in LinkedIn.

I’ve been working with a chiropractor.  Out of curiosity, I did a quick search on the word “chiropractor” to see what information LinkedIn offered.  To my surprise, several people had posted questions asking for recommended chiropractors in a specific reason.

Lesson learned: create an account, complete your profile, and participate in Questions & Answers with LinkedIn.
