emoticon Busy running in overdrive to keep all the balls in the air! I have had a run on resumes (my pt biz), and burning the midnight oil. This is great since I have had a few unexpected home repairs of late.

Also I am leading a new group of ladies in a community group from our church. We meet for dinner tomorrow night to plan our first official meeting.

I have been on a roll getting in daily the 5 power foods that I saw on a Dr. Oz show featuring Joel Furman, M.D., author of Eat to Live. They were adzuki beans, cocoa, squash, pomegranate seeds and cashews. They are supposed to be a real power combo for those with type 2 diabetes. It takes a little creativity to work all 5 in your day but I have pledged to try it for 3 months to see how it impacts my blood sugar and other blood work.

I hope that everyone has a great Wednesday!!

I will be interested in seeing how your power foods help with diabetes. I do believe nourishing our bodies with the right vitamins and minerals helps cure so many things!

Keep us posted! Way to go!

    Thanks for the comments! I should have clarified that the new book Dr. Furman was on the OZ show promoting was The End of Diabetes. I ordered the book with an Amazon gift card but have not had time to read it yet. The segment on these foods on the show was impressive though. They showed the best way to get the seeds out of the poms and it really worked. I do 3 or 4 at a time and put in snack bags in the freezer. Then I pop 1/4 c in my yogurt along with some chopped up cashews. At night, I have a cup of cocoa or cocoa powder in some ricotta with a tiny bit of agave sweetener. I have a salad almost every day where the chopped raw squash gets thrown in. And then the adzuki beans...
I found them after much searching at the H Mart grocery in their asian food isle. They are dried and I just soaked them overnight with 1 piece of seaweed (says it makes them less gassy) and then the next morning I put them in the crock pot on high 4 hrs then low for 4 more. I then cooled and put them in little baggies in the freezer too. Now I can add to soups and salads anytime I want.
I guess it is all in the prep and planning but I am motivated to give this a good effort. I hope the information is helpful to you or someone you love!

    Where are you finding your adzuki beans?
I've been looking for some but my local stores don't seem to carry them.

    I love them all but have never tried to get each and every one of them in daily!
