Fruited Cole Slaw a delicious concoction that I put together last night from what was available in the fridge. It turned out to be absolutely scrumptious! And it’s alkaline, perfect for bone-building. Here’s what you need:
1 bag of shredded cabbage (about three cups)
1 cup of Greek yogurt (I used the strawberry fruit-on-the-bottom flavor, even though it has some sugar in it.)
1 cup of sliced, fresh strawberries
1 small box of raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
Throw everything in a big bowl, stir it up, and enjoy!
Tonight I returned to exercise! It’s been a full month since my surgery to give my pelvic organs a “face lift,” and the doc gave the official thumbs-up to return to yoga, walking, and biking this week. So, tonight my bones and muscles celebrated by working out with Yolanda Pettinato’s gentle DVD, “Simply Yoga.” Simply wonderful!
If you’d like to get in on the action, you can order a copy of “Simply Yoga” from Amazon.com. Here the link: http://www.amazon.com/Simply-Yoga-Yolanda-Pettinato/dp/1865159263

Winter here in Florida is seldom the ordeal experienced in more northern climates. Just the same, I am delighted that signs of springtime are appearing: warmer temperatures, fat robins and cardinals in our backyard, and the occasional “spring” shower in the afternoon.
I, too, feel like my body is nearing the end of a winter spell with a new springtime approaching. About three weeks ago, I had surgery to repair a cystocele, rectocele, and enterocele–basically a “face-lift” for the organs of the pelvic floor. I had known for a while that something was amiss in my lower hemisphere, but dreaded the idea of surgery. Well, now that it is over and done, I wish I had the surgery sooner! The pain of recovery was minimal–I was back to work in a week–and I feel amazingly better with all my pelvic organs in the right place. I had a amazing surgeon, Dr. Julie Schneider of Ormond Beach, Florida; I highly recommend her.
I have three more weeks until I can return to vigorous exercise and weight training to maintain bone health. In the meantime, I’ve shifted to gentle yoga, gentle walking, and gentle stretching until the three weeks are up, while continuing to enjoy a healthy, healing, all-real-food diet. It’s great to be 60!
