Merit Scholarship Essay

What would life be like without YouTube?  I find myself revisiting this question quite often.  In the digital era of the 21st century, we are truly blessed to have global resources conveniently located at our fingertips.  This past year, I have been on a spiritual journey to rediscover not only myself, but the world in which we exist.  Some would classify this expedition as a yearning for “enlightenment.” With just one click of the mouse, I realized I could tap into the lives of…

Essay submission for the Merit Scholarship award: Cyrus Kiani

            In the late 19th century, Europe’s 24 most credible doctors pronounced Arnold Ehret incurable with Bright’s disease at the age of 31. Ehret used that as a wake up call. Through holistic health and nutrition, Ehret learned that “not the disease but the body is to be healed”1. Ehret overcame his disease not through “a cure or a remedy” but through “regeneration”1. Over 200 years later, millions of people everyday are diagnosed with various diseases,…

My Essay Contest Entry

It was a beautiful July day. The sun was warm but not too hot, a nice Polish summer day. Few clouds on the sky were passing by in a slow motion. It did not rain for several days, so the garden and trees were dry. The lack of rain was important for this time of the year, not only because children had vacation time, but also because it was cherry season. Beautiful dark red cherry can be easily spoiled by few rainy days, they will crack and mold, so having dry days was just what we needed to…

Essay for the Essie Honiball Scholarship

Hello To All Future Fruit Festival Friends!!!

Here is my essay for the Essie Honiball Scholarship award..

 

Freefalling through my life, I have navigated down some dreamy highways. There, I have had lots of jobs, earned college degrees, studied ecosystems, taught ecology, cooking and other important life skills to kids and adults. I’ve also discovered many loves and pursued a family. The better part of me always sees the bright side, makes conscious choices, meals from…

“Hey, Daddy, why are carrots good for you?”

My mission to nutrition began with such a question at age ten, to which my father would reply,

“Vitamin A, or beta-carotene”…

Essay submission for the Merit Scholarship award

Hi, everybody,

I was so excited to read about the scholarships you are offering this year. WFF has been on my agenda for the last two years, but by now it's still  too expensive for me to be able to afford it by myself. So, here I am, writing these lines in hope of getting a possibility of attending the festival this year.…

Woodstock Fruit Festival Essay Contest

Here is my essay entry for The Essie Honiball & Arnold Ehret Merit Scholarship Awards, thank you!!:

My journey to fruitarianism began in a rather unconventional manner. I am a hopeless idealist. I have always believed that we can live together as a happy, peaceful society, without racism, violence, class differences, religious conflicts, or animal torture. I know it sounds crazy but I really do believe it is still possible. While I am the type of person who is often inspired by…

Week 1&2
Starch Cravings

Starches are one of the hotly debated food groups about whether or not they are addictive.



By themselves, they are overall rather bland, making it seem hard to sell the idea that people can actually have starch cravings.

However, there is evidence showing that when Gluten is digested, Opioid Peptides are released.…

I'm so excited about my health in 2014!

I just returned from getting my blood tested and I'm so excited to have shown amazing improvement in my cholesterol levels.  After getting coffee out of the way (8 months ago), I was able to focus better on what I put into my body.  Soon after I started my daily juicing habit (7 months ago), within two weeks I began to feel hydrated in every nook and cranny of my body.  It was amazing to realize that I had never felt so "moist and lubricated" in all my life.  All my joint pain disappeared, I…

Should insufficient IODINE be a concern?

Hi All!

Ever since I became aware that the foods of the diet we're designed to eat do not necessarily contain enough of all the nutrients our bodies need for optimum functioning (because of the way they're grown), once I was finished with researching the two problematic non-food-provided nutrients (B12 & D), I started drilling down into the list of the nutrients that food is supposed to provide, and the one that stuck out like a sore thumb was iodine. And it has…

Some poems of mine with special words given by people

Time

Cognition

Satisfaction

Member

Helicopter

 

 

Take all cognition. It’s all yours –

All time of life, all wisdom’s force,

All satisfaction of the gods.

Because you’re god, I know you are!

 

We all are members – cosmic children.

So take all pleasure from the healing,

Because your mind becomes so proud

When you remember who you are.

 

You were so lost and mad…
