not just a berry, a lifestyle…

buddha wants you to know that even though ‘life is suffering’, drink acai

and you probably think i made that up, right?  "not just a berry, a lifestyle…" but no dear readers, it’s the actual motto from the acai roots company.  i definitely would have been so berry much more clever.

and do you see that glass being lovingly cradled by the buddha?  it contains pure potent purple goodness. what you’re looking at is an acai pulp berry smoothie that will allegedly, among other things – improve your sex drive.  it’s one of the most powerful and nutritious foods known to man, and widely acknowledged as one of the richest anti-oxidants available.  i could go on about the high levels of omega 3 and 6 as well as the amino acids, not to mention all the fiber… but i’ll leave the thorough research in your capable hands.  bottom line is that DR. OZ gives it the big thumbs up.  need i say more? 

i’ve also seen it in the drink section of ‘whole foods’, being touted as the superfood to end all superfoods.  it’s as though they’re screaming the accolades of this brazilian berry across the globe.  Drink. This. NOW.

so last week, before i left for LA my friend angela gave me a big frozen container of acai pulp – the creme de la creme of acai.  blended with a banana, fresh blueberries and some ice cubes, it became a really nice spring breakfast for a few days running.

please excuse the fact that i breathed while taking this photograph without a tripod…

so, while i’m on the west coast not eating anything worth mentioning, the memory of this smoothie is actually pretty damn appealing. i plan on ordering a few containers and seeing if i notice… well, anything…

but ummm, do you think that just a little side of bacon would affect the ‘sex life’ perk?

    Wowzas, you guys/girls?, make everything sound so bloody complicated.With my very low IQ Ill simplify it for you both.The majority of the world don’t understand any of that, so it is basically, mostly, it is useless.Are you under the impression if everyone gets really smart you can help the world be a better place, or are you both making a great example of why it is not a better place?Just sayin.

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    – I’ve recently been surfing online over three hrs today, yet We never observed any intriguing article like yours. It can be pretty worthy of enough personally. In my personal view, if most web owners and people made great content because you did, the internet is going to be much a lot more useful than previously.

    that, they do not continually realize that there are additional benefits to losing weight also. Doctors declare that overweight people come across a variety of conditions that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. Thankfully that people who are overweight plus suffering from a variety of diseases are able to reduce the severity of their particular illnesses simply by losing weight. It’s possible to see a slow but notable improvement in health as soon as even a minor amount of weight reduction is obtained.

    By the way, I saw a drunk fall from the upper deck in old Comiskey Park in Chicago in 1983. Fortunately, he landed on a catwalk about 12 feet below and didn’t kill himself or any fans below.So far this baseball season two people in New York, one at Yankee Stadium and one at Shea, have been seriously injured when obese drunken fans have fallen on them.As for the partying at Hansen Dam, while it sounds a bit uncouth, in some ways it’s nice that people can have fun without the nanny state nannying away.

    ある方から1949å¹´12月29日草案(竹島が日本領と明記された)のファイルを頂きました。そこで指摘されたのが、第三項には、2.があり、そこには2. All of the islands mentioned above are shown on the map attachedto the present Treaty. と続いており、付図があったようです。1949å¹´11月2日草案(竹島が日本領から外されると明記された)のは1949å¹´12月29日草案(竹島が日本領と明記された)に置き換えられるので、当然その付図も置き換えられるわけですが。実は、には1. しかないのですが、確かに、右下に2. Allとあり、その次に続く文章があることがわかります。塚本氏の1994論文にも、確かに付図のあることが翻訳されています。

    Beautiful post, Elaine (as usual). I'm also a footprint watcher. I'm forever watching for them out here in the woods, especially now in the now. I want my footprints to leave an indelible print in the lives of my family. That's what I'm ever mindful of. Forever follow His footprints. Blessings, Marsha

    An fascinating dialogue is worth a comment. I feel that you need to write extra on this subject, it won’t be a taboo subject but usually people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    …and in what areas is the authority of government or government entities, constituted? Obstacles! This world is collapsing under the adolescent attitudes, distorted mindsets and monstrous selfishness because of controlled manipulated education, political parties, special interests and world leaders…
