|Discipline by David Wolfe|
Discipline is freedom. You may disagree with this statement, and if you do you are certainly not alone. For many people discipline is a dirty word that is equated with the absence of freedom. In fact the opposite is true. As Stephen R. Covey once wrote, "the undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites and passions". And in the longer term, the undisciplined lack the freedom that comes with possessing particular skills and abilities - e.g. to play a musical instrument or speak a foreign language.
Self-discipline involves acting according to what you think instead of how you feel in the moment. Often it involves sacrificing the pleasure and thrill of the moment for what matters most in life. Therefore it is self-discipline that drives you to:
Work on an idea or project after the initial rush of enthusiasm has faded away
Go to the gym when all you want to do is lie on the couch and watch TV
Wake early to work on yourself
Say "no" when tempted to break your diet

Are you enjoying the fresh air, sunshine, farmer's markets and the local fresh flavors of the summer? How fast the summer has gone by. What a great time to be happy. Do you ever stop and really think about how blessed we are? Clean air, clean water, a roof over our heads, clean sheets whenever we want them. Just the little things in life we take for granted.
Here I am on Day #68 of my juice fast and I am feeling amazing!!! I feel really blessed to be be able to let food go and give my body a rest from the pollution of the past. I'm so happy you are a part of our community and I have so much to share today and the newsletters to come. I have several other wonderful ladies who will be sharing their testimony along with mine in the September newsletter.
We have Dorit coming this month, and Asian un-cooking class, tickets on sale for David Wolfe and lots of new products coming back from Texas.

|Abilities of Raw Cultured Vegetables to Enliven the Flavor of Foods
Either on their own as a revitalizing snack or as an enriching garnish consumed on the same spoon with other foods, many people love the live zing taste sensations of various combinations of Raw Cultured Vegetables. This article offers an understanding about how the intrinsic life energy in Raw Cultured Vegetables creates a phenomena, when consumed, of actually enticing and enhancing the release of naturally present flavors as well as the nutritional benefits of most foods that the Raw Cultured Vegetables are eaten with.
Fresh Raw Cultured Vegetables, in their creation and existence (as a refrigerated food taking part in an ongoing self-perpetuating culturing process) and as they are being consumed, do and are doing almost the same thing as our body's assimilation system. Because assimilation is being initiated sooner, the flavors of all the foods are released sooner and in a more complete and healthful way. They actually bring out the flavors in foods. Raw Cultured Vegetables are an exceptional garnish to enhance just about all foods with an exotic live zing taste sensation and this unique food is a natural enhancement to the human assimilation process.
