Oreos are More addictive than …

Study: Oreos are More Addictive Than Cocaine

Ocean Robbins sent this letter to me. It’s about Oreos. 


Hi Glenda the Good Foodie,
Back in 2013, Forbes revealed scientific research which showed that Oreos could be more addictive than cocaine or heroin. This means it may be easier to kick a cocaine addiction than it is to let go of those double-stuffed sugar-bombs.
But it doesn’t stop there…
Food addiction isn’t just about Oreos. Yes, some people are hooked on junk food. But many so-called “health foods” can be just as addictive. For some folks, organic, stone-ground whole wheat bread, vegan black-bean brownies, or plain old chips and dip do the trick. Sound familiar?
My dear friend, Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson, has developed a 5-question Susceptibility Quiz to help you find out how likely you are to be addicted to food — and what you can do about it.
Find out where you are on the Susceptibility Scale by taking this short quiz.
After the quiz, Susan will give you your score, and a customized Food Freedom video to help you understand what it means for your life.
At the Food Revolution Network, we’re excited to be joining with Susan to bring this to you, because we think it’s breakthrough stuff.
Yours for food freedom,
Ocean Robbins
P.S. The fact is, some people are more susceptible to food addictions than others. Take the quiz to see where you stand.

10 Inspiring Quotes That Reduce Stress BY GEOFFREY JAMES @SALES_SOURCE
These words of wisdom from the past can reduce the stress of today’s workplace.

Few emotional states are more dangerous–both to yourself and to your team–than stress. If you’re stressed, you make poor decisions, you get sick more easily, and you spread your stress to those around you.

Fortunately, there’s a timeless way to get stress back under control: Draw upon the wisdom of the past. Here are 10 quotes I read to myself whenever I’m feeling stressed:

1. “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive–to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
–Marcus Aurelius

2. “God give us the grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, the courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.”
–Reinhold Niebuhr

3. “He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.”

4. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

5. “In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
–Fred “Mister” Rogers

6. “Bend and you will be whole.
Curl and you will be straight.
Keep empty and you will be filled.
Grow old and you will be renewed.”
–The Tao Te Ching

7. “Suffering becomes beautiful when anyone bears great calamities with cheerfulness, not through insensibility but through greatness of mind.”

8. “Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it.”

9. “Even as fire finds peace in its resting place without fuel, when thoughts become silence the soul finds peace in its own source. When the mind is silent, then it can enter into a world which is far beyond the mind. This is wisdom, and this is liberation.”
–The Upanishads

10. “In a year you’ll barely remember why you felt so stressed, so why stress about it now?”
–My mom

Well, that’s my list. What quotes do you use when you’re feeling stressed?

My Struggle with Achieving My Goals

Happy Labor Day


I discovered while was great at writing goals I was not as competent at achieving them.

I’m speaking of the BIG goals.

I would write them down and even post them where I could see them everyday. But I got off track or procrastinated.

For years I went through this frustration and disappointment.

Eventually, I discovered the secret to why I was not able to meet my goals. THE MAIN REASON was that my goals were
not aligned
not in sync
With my VALUES.

Now that I have done my work, I live a much more fulfilling and satisfying life!

All I want to do now is share the process of going from

Frustration to Fulfillment!

I have created an online course to help anyone who finds themselves in the same situation.
