Life is full of apples, pears, bananas and lemon trees
butterflies, knats, flies, mosquitos and bees.

All belong to nature and work well together
most strive in spring and summer, vacating during winter weather.

Ah. You’ve gotta love the variety of nature for it shapes the spices of life.
Like your bouquet of family and friends – some bear love and some yield strife.

You embrace the status quo, because it is the constant that is always given
and that’s cool, if you do – but don’t let it alter your productive livin.’

Thank God for the honey, then cut and slice those lemons
and put them in a cup of hot water and receive your healin.’

Sip those darn lemons slow and let them benefit you.
Then make a nice bowl of sliced and cut-up mixed fruit.

It really is ALL GOOD – if you know what to do with each one.
Some you’ll keep for love and some you’ll lose after the fun.

Life is quite lovely and flavorful because of its many fruits.
Trees will come and go though you’re DNA code remains your roots.

If you find a familial tree whose fruit suits not your taste,
It’s not your tree, so let it be and carry on with grace.

Embrace what you learn and don’t forget to always open up to love;
Observe the green of your produce; vibrate higher – expand towards the sun.

You can infuse any fruit with water, be it the meat sweet or sour.
I take the fruits that life gives me and juice them with prayer power.

Mmmmm. Good stuff.

I love to sip those lemons and sauce-the-apples when I can,
I’m Qui
Quite fond of the various fruits of the land.
The good and the bad go hand-in-hand.

Everybody likes to feel good. Right? Here are 5 delicious body healing foods that you should add to your menu and experience your healthiest summer ever — effortlessly.

Let’s start with the CHERRY on top: Cherries ward off summer insomnia. Later sunsets and muggy weather sabotage the body’s production of sleep-inducing melatonin– an effect that makes women twice as likely to spend the night tossing and turning, says, Meir Kryger, M.D., author of Can’t Sleep, Can’t Stay Awake. The good news: Canadian scientists report that a daily dose of melatonin-rich cherries can restore sleep quality in as little as 10 days.

Lemonade helps curb cortisol spikes Exposure to heat and intense UV rays amps up the body’s production of stress hormones, but a fresh glass of lemonade works to ward off a mood meltdown. According to Stanford University researchers, breathing in the drinks citrus aroma calms the central nervous system to lower cortisol output within 60 seconds, while lemon’s vitamin C soothes overworked adrenals to regulate stress-hormone production long-term.

Yogurt neutralizes seasonal allergens Probiotics in cultured milk products have been shown to help regulate the body’s immune-system response to pollen and pet dander. The payoff: Sniffling, sneezing and other symptoms are eased in seven days, notes Jeanne A. Drisko, M.D., an integrative-medicine specialist at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. Just 1 cup of yogurt or kefir per day will deliver the allergy-fighting benefits.

Sesame seeds improve blood flow to the brain Summer is prime time for headache flare-ups since bout of dehydration combined with barometric pressure fluxes can trigger spasms in teh brain’s blood vessels. A natural Rx: Noshing on one to two daily servings of sesame seed-rich fare like bagels, tahini sauce or stir-fry dishes. Studies show that the plant fats and magnesium in sesame seeds relax and open brain blood vessels, cutting the occurrence of headaches in half.

Watermelon sun-proofs skin Snacking on 2 cups of this juicy fruit daily slashes sunburn risk by 26 percent. The credit goes to lycopene, an antioxidant that improves skin cells’ ability to defend against damaging UV rays, explains Debra Jaliman, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. What’s more, lycopene has tissue-healing abilities that can cut recovery time in half if skin does get a bit pink.

I’ve not ever been one for eating yogurt or chewing on sesame seeds,
but given their natural benefits, they will be ‘NEW BEST FRIENDS’ to me.

I like doing nothing, as much as I love being in a healthy mood,
