Yes, I know, I haven't blogged since November 25Th. Its been a week to remember. I've got to learn that work is nothing more than a means to an end. Work is not my life, nor does it control my life. I'm in charge, and if anyone else thinks that they're in charge of my life, they're sadly mistaken. (Notice an undercurrent of dissatisfaction? Oh, I'm so impressed!)

So, how do I deal with those things in my life that upset me? I've fallen in love with a business book by Robert Sutton, a professor of business at Stanford. He wrote a wonderful book called "The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't". It talks about dealing with insufferable people, and conditions in your life.

Bob lists fifteen things he believes on his blog. I love #2: "Indifference is as important as passion." Of course #15 might just be the most important: "Work is an overrated activity".

Now that I'm done with venting, its time to turn to the most important thing in your life, your body. Well, to you its your body, to me its my body that's most important, but I hope you get
where I'm going.

There are two products we've rediscovered this week. One is from our favorite people, The Raw Divas!

Yes, you can now buy Diva Jugs! Oh, splurge and buy a pair of jugs! These jugs are green with wonderful uplifting sayings. If you buy now, you can take part in their new "Green Smoothie Challenge". To say that the Divas have been life changers is an understatement!

Then there's this ugly bag. Its from The Sproutman! It might be ugly but it holds tons of nutritious sprouts within a few days! Made of natural hemp, it provides a great medium to grow those healthy sprouts that you spend half of your weekly budget on at the market for just pennies.

So, if you're looking for something for Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year. Me? I wish I could be in Viet Nam for Tet. Some day. I hear its one hell of a party!) let your keyboard do the shopping with THE RAW DIVAS, and The Sproutman!

You can't go wrong by giving yourself and a friend a chance to participate in the next Body Enlightenment System, starting the first weekend of January 2008. The gift of health is always a great gift! The Divas will help you battle those cravings in 2008 too! So click on the highlighted links, and check out both the Sproutman, and THE RAW DIVAS!

Oh, I almost forgot. There's some great news from the Food Network. Emeril's prime time show "Emeril Live" has been canceled! Its just too bad that the people at the Food Network can't get interested in providing information on healthy nutrition. Except for Alton Brown at times, the Food Network is not about health, but about entertainment. (That as they say, is my own personal opinion! Yes Giada, we know that your teeth are straight and white! I've never known a person that can make a smile look like a grimace. She might be thinking of her grandfather, Dino De Laurentiis's movies! Then there's Paula Deen. I can't take a person who believes that mayonnaise should replace butter, and has a laugh that grates like fingers on a chalkboard!) Hmmm, maybe I should save this for another blog! I can be so catty!
