Diet in Japan

Chicken Shack Japanese Restaurant Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

E. Welch

Mrs. Welch shares her experience with food (diet) from Japan: The pictures are from a place called Chicken Shack, an old Japanese House located in the hills converted into a restaurant. When one arrives, they sit on the floor atop of Japanese pillow at a traditional Japanese dinner table. The food was fantastic. I had the infamous chicken and gyoza (dumplings). James (husband) had a rice ball. Waterfalls run throughout and around the restaurant.

The food was very good. Definitely healthier. Their diet consist of lean meats, veggies and rice. Everything is fresh especially the veggies. They tend to frown on frozen food. They eat small portions. The rice ball is considered a full meal. Typically, they eat a rice ball, like that, a cup (4oz.) of soup. That is it! No more drinks, alcohol or tea?

Happy Birthday and thanks to Mrs. Welch for sharing her experience. What can you learn from their diet? How could you improve your diet? What about your diet is already great?

Rethinking Chronic Illness

health Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

It was not until I met Chef Ponder that I really feel that I began to have a break through in my own thinking about my health. In conjunction with Norfolk Public Libraries, Chef Ponder held a series that got cut short by the pandemic. The series was naturally about food and educating the public about the linkages between food and health. He challenged me to think critically about chronic illness and how food, among other things, could be effecting my health. How even climate, yes climate, is effecting my health. Shortly after I was speaking with other people dealing with chronic illnesses. Finally I was lead to scripture which reminded me of the promise that it gives us for a healing. Healing is totally different from the concept of pain, medicine or what have you “management.” Naturally it is in a medical professionals best financial interest to manage illness rather than to heal illness.

When I decided to stop claiming an illness, I stopped living with the illness and became dedicated to my healing rather than feeling or functioning better. When I embraced my healing, I found a healing. Similar to many people with chronic illnesses, I had many questions and few answers and even fewer real solutions. Rethinking wellness and seeking alternative medicines becomes more and more main stream as the current Western Model of Medicine continues to leave many people with the only option of managing illnesses. Managing an illness means living with an illness, which means developing a chronic illness, which can lead to other illnesses as the body is in a constant state of disease.

What chronic illnesses have you or your loved ones been dealing with? How long? Have you resolved to live with the illness for life? Did you know there could be another option of wellness for you by considering alternative medicines and roads to wellness. Mainstream medicine does not mean health or healing. Have you considered thinking outside the confines of mainstream. Fads come and go. What is mainstream today will not necessarily be mainstream tomorrow. Health and wellness are not fades. They are a state of healthy being. We pray for your health and wellness.Share your comments with the community by posting them below.

Have you kept up with recent technology? Have you seen the latest robots? Did you know that Ai (Artificial Intelligence) technology beat the world chess champion?

People go to hospitals and medical professionals for viable solutions. They go because they want things to improve. They want things to get better. What happens when the very thing that was suppose to help, makes things worse? What are the actual clinical trails for these devices? Do they have any oversight whatsoever or are they simply allowed to be in the market with no serious oversight by the FDA? The medical device industry makes the pharmaceutical industry look like a dinosaur. What are the benefits of pushing these devices on the market without considering the risks? Most pharmaceutical professionals will tell you that if a drug has not been on the market for 7 to 10 years you are the experiment. Why are these defective devices being recalled if they went through clinical trail? Share your comments with the community by posting below.
