Super flush

Thanks to neighbor Louise for this super duper tip to body flushing.  You know that the naturopathic  healers ALL stress how important it is to cleanse your bowels and it is very true. However, this isn't all that natural because it involves 7-Up, so I am not filing this under "Natural Health". I didn't get the exact formula, but I think you can make up proportions to taste.  She rolled her eyes when she sa ...

Chicken or Egg?

Here's a thought for you that can hopefully change your mindset about financial well being and action: Imagine your savings, home equity, retirement funds as being eggs.  If you have your funds in stocks or mutual funds sitting in accounts, they are also eggs.  As a matter of fact, people actually call these their nest egg!  When you need to draw out from these eggs, you will have to crack them or take a bi ...

On Commitment

This was passed out to all in attendance at the first Rich Woman seminar held here in Hawaii by Kim Kiyosaki. Kim is a wonderful inspiration - she has built up her own real estate empire, is the beloved wife of Robert, and is really really nice, and rich! Here it is: On Commitment "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative ...

So what if you could….

I just listened to a CD on "Your Personal Profile for Wealth - Revealed," a Raymond Aaron interview with Roger Hamilton. It was about learning what you do best - here's a link to his test. It will cost you $100, so check out his videos and site before you decide. The interview was also about making money in order to give. Wonderful concept. This isn't about giving all your personal belongings away and enter ...

Tried and true, best of the best.  And easy.  I don't like to cook, so if I do have to cook, it has to be simple and delicious, or else we go out and eat at Zippy's. I bought a few musubis from Mana Bu's and shared some with good friend Lin.  As we were happily munching on it, I commented on how perfect it was.  The rice was cooked perfectly, the salt taste just enough, the nori really good, and the filling ...

Preparing and cooking with your cast iron pan

Cooking with a cast iron pan is the best way to cook - you get a bit of iron in your food, and the heat can be really really high if you need it to be. When you shop for a new pan you will find raw cast iron (looks like aluminum in color and have spots of rust) or preseasoned ones.  Cast iron is naturally stick free if it has been prepared right and since the preparation process can be quite time and labor ...

Chinese style Steamed Fish

My favorite way to eat fish.  Just make sure there are no scales left on the skin if you are steaming whole fish.  I once bought fish fillets from Whole Foods – Chilean Sea Bass.  Unreal good stuff.  Costed a lot though.  Sometimes you have to spoil yourself and get the best. STEAMED FISH Sprinkle salt on cleaned fish (or fillet), lay stalks of green onion over.  Place in steamer or wrap with foil, and put ...

Fishcake with Oio or Awa

Uncle says this recipe is the best one.  I got this from the Hilo Women’s Country cookbook.  They must have good cooks over in Hilo.  When Uncle catches oio, I make fishcake, but first he has the harder job of skinning, then spooning the meat off the fish.  I then go in with my hands and fingers and pick out any bones he may have missed.  Uncle says he doesn’t mind the bits of bones.  How can that be?  I th ...
