some facts about melons...

I recently enjoyed eating a melon I purchased at my local farmer's market, called sharlyn melon.  I loved its sweet and butterscotch taste so much I made this video:

Melons, like this one, are loaded vitamins and taste.  While they are not superfoods, they do pack a lot of nutritious punch.  My only negative I can say about them is their sugar and carb count.  I constantly watch my carb intake, so I have to enjoy this delicious food in moderation.

But that's just me.  What about you?

Some reasons we all, but especially you, should embrace this tasty fruit:

  •         low in calories
  •         no fat
  •         high in vitamin C and A
  •         great for smoothies, fruit salads, and breakfast
  •         taste awesome!

How does one tell when a melon is ripe?  Glad you asked...

And don't forget one of the most popular melons of all time...

I love the sweet taste of melons, but consume them in moderation with a nod to my low-carb diet.  They are worth it, though, for all of the above reasons.

I try to visit my local farmer's market every week.  It is there where I have discovered many of the fruits and veggies that I have shared with millions of people across the world.  One of my favorite things to do, something that makes me what I am and gives me wonderful fulfillment.

Until next time...

Take Action

My most resent video is called, “Move It or Lose It.”  I discuss the importance of getting off one’s duff and moving around.  Exercise.  Yes, it may sound like a broken record, but this tune is being sung for a reason:


Working up a daily sweat is awesome for you.  It not only helps you burn more calories, which contributes to weight loss (and who doesn’t need to drop a few pound, right?).  It also assists in blowing out the impurities inside you, which just makes you feel good.

It is also good for the soul.  And the mind.  And, the obvious, the body.  The old Triad of Balance.

One of my favorite sayings is:


Don’t sit around waiting for your life to change, or wishing it would, you gotta do something!

I have written several books and blog posts, produced hundreds of videos and original music.  It is no accident that a lot of hard work went into doing all of the above.  But none of it would have gotten done without taking that first step…taking action...

Often, when I tell folks that I have written a few books or that I fancy myself a writer, they respond by saying, “Gee, I always wanted to written a book.”

To that I usually say something like: “What’s stopping you?”  And then go on to explain that it only takes a few words to get started, to take action, to be well on your way to becoming that writer you keep talking about wanting to become…or that singer…or fireman…or college graduate…or trapeze artist…whatever it is you want to do with your life.



Because it’s your life and it is precious…so don’t waste it.

Think about it.

Until next time…
