COCONUT

Fruits That Should Be In A Pharmacy

“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”

Ounce for ounce, coconut contains even more saturated fat than butter—119 percent of your recommended daily intake, per cup. Still, it appears to have a beneficial effect on heart-disease risk factors. One reason: More than 50 percent of its saturated-fat content is lauric acid.

A recent analysis of 60 studies published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that even though lauric acid raises LDL (bad) cholesterol, it boosts HDL (good) cholesterol even more. Overall, this means it decreases your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Serving size: 1 cup, shredded (80 g), 283 calories, 7 g fiber, 3 g protein, 27 g fat, 12 g carbs, 60% manganese, 12% selenium.

Through observation you will find that there is a law or a truest truth that says, “Every seed produces after it’s own kind”.

If I plant an apple seed I will get an apple tree… pretty simple right? This simple but profound truth can be applied to many aspects of our lives. If I have negative thoughts what will those negative thoughts produce? Negative thoughts will produce negative talk/actions. “Seeds” of negative thoughts and talk produce negative actions.

If we speak out “seeds of negativity” what will we get in return? Negativity. Thoughts and words can be self-fulfilling prophecies because, “every seed produces after it’s own kind”.

If “seeds produce after their own kind” that means the “seeds” you plant today will be what you harvest tomorrow. Therefore we must learn to be intentional with our “seed planting”.

Apply this truest truth to your diet. Learn to see that what you eat as “seeds” that will produce something in your life. Depending on that “seed”, your life can either gain health and happiness or gain physical disease and inward emotional dis-ease.

Fruits are filled with life and filled with nutrients that encourage and support life.

If you would intentionally “sow” more fruits into your diet, it will produce a harvest of health and happiness.

PAPAYA

“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”

With about a full day’s worth of vitamin C, a medium-size papaya can help kick a cold right out of your system. The beta-carotene and vitamins C and E in papayas also reduce inflammation throughout the body, lessening the effects of asthma.

Native to Central and South America, papaya is the best known source of papain—an enzyme so efficient at breaking down protein that it’s used commercially to tenderize meat.

Cut the fruit in half and scoop out the juicy flesh, or grind up the seeds and use them as a black-pepper substitute.

Eating watermelon could help your heart. USDA scientists found that people who drank six 8-ounce cups of watermelon juice daily for 3 weeks experienced a 22 percent increase in their levels of arginine—an amino acid that boosts blood flow to your ticker. Can’t manage six cups? Smaller amounts help, too.

A watermelon has the same water content as the brain and delivers brain chemistry. It prevents erectile dysfunction, lowers blood pressure, and improves insulin sensitivity. It also helps remove ammonia from the body.

PEAR

Fruits That Should Be In A Pharmacy

“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”

Pears aren’t usually spoken about with the same nutritional “ooos” and “ahhhs” as apples, which are rightfully regarded as a superfood. Still, a single pear has more fiber than an apple, comparable vitamin C, and only a few more calories and carbs.

When picking pears, you want a pleasant fragrance and some softness at the stem end. Some brown discoloration is fine. Ripen them at room temperature in a loosely closed paper bag.

“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”

This South American fruit is packed with vision-protecting vitamin A and more cholesterol-lowering fiber than your average textile mill—a single serving has 25 grams, a full day’s worth, plus potassium twice that of a banana.

Cut the fruit in half and eat the pulp with a spoon, or cut it into little pieces and toss on ice cream. Make sure you eat the seeds—that’s where the fiber is stored.

Recognize Your Gifts and Learn to Share Them With the World

“The Gift in You”
Author: Caroline Leaf

I use to really hate reading! Ha! I mean I avoided it at all cost until I turned 25 years old. I realized something… the people who write these books go through years of experience and research and put it all into a book that I can read within a week. I can gain the knowledge, understanding and wisdom from years of struggles in only a few days. When I got this realization I saw that reading books that will help me grow as a person as very valuable and not read everyday. Reading truly has changed my life and has benefited my life’s experience.

This book called “The Gift in You” was awesome. I have done many studies on our gifts and talents and how to utilize them fully. This book brings practical insights along with the scientific insight of the brain. I really enjoy the read. It shared how to understand that you are uniquely gifted and reveals how your gifts work. I think is it’s so important to not only know your gifs but to learn how to live our gifts. We must recognize the gifts blockers so that we can overcome them and rise up into our full potential. I really enjoy book that not only help my personally but give me information and tools that I can help others with. I recommend this book.

MY TWO MEETINGS WITH KOBE BRYANT

Kobe Bryant, straight from high school becoming the youngest All-Star in NBA history at the age of 19. What an amazing basketball player who has amazed the world with his passion and discipline for the sport. With this passion and discipline he carried a strong leadership presence and amazing skills on the court that set new standards in the sport of basketball. Kobe has won five NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and played on both the 2008 and 2012 U.S. Olympic teams, winning gold medals with his teammates. After many years of inspiring the world through his passion and skill in basketball, Kobe is now retiring from the game. So many are sad and thankful at the same time. Sad because there will never be another Kobe Bryant yet thankful for the amazing 20 years he shared with us and demonstrated greatness on the court. Whether or not you were a fan, you could not deny the level of skill he played with. Twenty years ago Kobe walked onto the court straight from high school and today one of the best players to ever walk the court. For me, I am truly impressed and know that he has set very high standard for the next generation of NBA Basketball.

I myself had the privilege of meeting him on two very different levels in two very different times in my life. The first time I met him was when I was around 19 years old. At that time I did not know what I wanted to do with my life and had no clue that the next time I would met him would be because he himself reaching out to me to have lunch and talk leadership. Yes, you read that right… he and his agent reached out to me to have lunch and talk leadership. What an honor right?

Below is a picture of the first time we met in 1999 at a bowling fundraiser event he had. Interesting to me that there were many other celebrities there yet I only took a picture with him and little did we both know that we would meet again almost 6 years later to have lunch. At the fundraising event the only words share between us went something like this,

Richard, “Hey Kobe, you mind taking a picture with me?”

Kobe, “Sure”

Richard, “Thanks”.

That’s about it! Ha! But little did I know that we would meet again and that he would ask me about my view on leadership.

Now it’s the year 2005 and I myself am a totally different person with a totally different mindset and way of living. I now have a clear vision and purpose for my life and am actively making a different in the world. By this time I was traveling to different Nations teaching leaders to become more effective and influential in their spheres of influence. I was having conferences where 300 leaders from over 10 different nations would come hear me speak for 3 days. Also, Kobe was in a totally different place in his own life. In 2003 he was accused of sexual assault in Colorado, but the charges were eventually dropped and settled out of court. In 2004 Shaquille O’Neal was traded to the Miami Heat and now Kobe himself became the cornerstone of the Lakers.

I received a phone call from Rob Pelinka who is Kobe’s agent. He asked to set up a meeting with him and Kobe to talk about the topic of “Leadership”. Wow! What an honor right? To be honest I was shocked and humbled and a little nervous. We set up our meeting about a week from that phone call to meet where lived in Glendora California. I picked a nice small Italian place near my home where I knew he wouldn’t be bothered for autographs and pictures. We all arrive and sit and begin chatting and getting to know each other. I was calm yet excited and had it set in my mind that I was going to impact both of them in a powerful way. Rob was truly a great guy and Kobe is blessed to have him as his agent. He was very intelligent, diplomatic, and compassionate. Kobe was a little quite at first but had a presence.

They begin to ask me what I thought was key to great leadership. I had lots to share about this topic and our talk was very interactive full of depth. They are two sharp guys who wanted to grow and be the best at what they did. We enjoyed our lunch and talk about leadership for over two hours. I was truly humbled and honored to sit with such amazing men and talk leadership.

After that day I asked myself, “Did my input impact them?” I believe it did but to what level I do not know. I do know that Kobe led the NBA in scoring during the 2005-07 seasons and scored a career-high 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. He also was awarded the regular season MVP award in 2008. I am definitely not saying this this happened because of me and our lunch chat but I am just honored to have had that time and share the knowledge I had on the topic of leadership with such great men.

As Kobe Bryant’s career is coming to an end it made me reflect on my own journey and how I have learned and grown in every area of my life. To meet Kobe for the first time when I was about 18 years old and not have a clue of what to do with my life to the second time meeting him when I was around 24 or 25 years old and have the opportunity to share with him my knowledge about leadership.

ORANGES

Fruits That Should Be In A Pharmacy

“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”

A single orange gives you almost a full day’s vitamin C, plus potassium.
Want to reduce your risk of calcium oxalate kidney stones? Drink orange juice. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that when women drank ½ to 1 liter of orange, grapefruit or apple juice daily, their urinary pH value and citric acid excretion increased, significantly dropping their risk of forming calcium stones.

The most important flavanone in oranges, herperidin has been shown to lower high blood pressure as well as cholesterol in animal studies, and to have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Importantly, most of this phytonutrient is found in the peel an inner white pulp of the orange, rather than in its liquid orange center, so this beneficial compound is too often removed by the processing of oranges into juice.

Through observation you will find that there is a law or a truest truth that says,“Every seed produces after it’s own kind”.

If I plant an apple seed I will get an apple tree… pretty simple right? This simple but profound truth can be applied to many aspects of our lives.
