Hello From Vernonia, Oregon

This New Year brings the birth of blogging for me. In sharing what I've learned as a single mother of 7, Elder Caregiver, Master's level Social Worker, Graduate Research Assistant in the School of Nursing at UTArlington, Sexual abuse counselor, cook, poet and writer, remodeler, Life and Health Insurance Agent, Waitress, Nutrition Consultant and Cancer survivor, I hope to make a positive difference in the lives of others and this planet. My desire is to leave this world better than I found it in some way. I welcome your open and honest comments, questions, challenges and shared experiences about nutrition and health issues.

I strive for detail and accuracy, good communication and respectful discussions. Passion is a driving force, but vulgarity or personal attacks are asked to take a distant seat to mature, researched contributions and  personal accounts.
I trust that those interested in health are on a path to healthy relating, also.
I heard recently that it is more important to be kind than it is to be right. Though I take health and healing seriously, I hope to share in ways that shape a positive atmosphere. 
Happy New Year!
Owner, Lean Green Cafe

Hi Pam, this is a good beginning for a blog. Happy New Year to you and yours, Ali

The best to you and yours, also, Alison. Especially your new little granddaughter! I couldn't be happier for you.

I just looked over your food catalog, and am amazed at how many products you carry. The color layout sprinkled with recipes is great, and reminded me of how alike we are as sisters in this type of eclectic publishing. You've always been a giver, and a goer. I admire that in you.
I'll include your website so others can see what kind of entrepreneur sister I have. The powdered vanilla, lemon and almond flavorings that don't bake or boil out are one of my favorite things, along with the professional bakeware.
I'll have to tell the story of our cheese coop days on the blog...

Hi Pam, thanks for the nice comment about the Pantry! I am trying Red Marine Algae right now to build my immune system. I went to Good Earth awhile back and the expert there suggested this herbal remedy. I will have to tell you how I feel in awhile. Hope all is well, Ali
