I am deeply inspired by Grannie's resolve to take into her own hands her own health remedies.  Truly, I am privileged to witness not only her will, but more, her determination to combat her own health issues.  For me, it is a thing of beauty and for the sheer good of it, to watch Grannie rather laboriously go through the process - the resolve, the research, the work, the fortitude - the time and energy she commits every single day to write her own prescriptions for maintaining good health.

When Grannie's not at her computer or tablet, researching (okay and playing solitaire - no longer challenged by the New York Times Crossword Puzzles), she is in the kitchen prepping an array of fruits and vegetables she's researched for her specific natural health remedies.  The artist in me cannot help but pick up the camera and begin snapping these images before me and in my mind, for the good of generations of our great grands to come, to reap the benefits of Grannie's Tonics. 

Grannie Rights Her Own Natural Prescriptions

Essentially, Grannie's Daily Fruit Smoothie includes the standards, like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, grapes, pineapples, oranges, apples, watermelon, pomegranates, and of course, she'll throw in anything else her research informs necessary, like Hibiscus and Green teas, oh, and Greek Yogurt!

The idea is to get all the good for you stuff into your body everyday to help your body run more efficiently!  I will tell you that because of Grannie, I too get my nutrients everyday; though, honestly, I am not as regimented as Grannie, but I figure, even a little is more than I've ever done, the best I've eaten in my whole life and that feels good to me.

As well, I've seen the results in the both of us.  For example, weight loss, smooth bowels, clearer skin, eating less, etc.  To me, this is all really Grannie's legacy, which will surely benefit not only our great grands, but I can't help but share it with you, too!  I am amazed and honored to be here, to bear witness, I mean, That's My Momma!  She's something else; always been this way, always been My Shero, always had zero tolerance for the boolshyt - in some, but not all, people, politics, religion, medicine and these days, well, we just can't help but wonder, What's going on with the food? 

YOUR COMMENTS ARE WELCOMED (below)

When Grannie's at the market picking out her fruit, I enjoy just stepping back and watching.  She is so delighted in her preparations that someone always asks her, "Grannie [like they know her] what are you going to do with ...?"
