Mother of the Bride



Do's and Don't's for Mother of the Bride By Kelly Granite Enck

1. Traditionally avoid colors a bride would wear, like cream, white, and champagne.
2. I chose the "DEMUR" approach, to allow my daughter stand out on her wedding day. :)
3. Don't wear black.
4. Ask your daughter what color she has in mind for you, giving her confidence that the colors she has chosen for her wedding day will be perfect!
5. It took me many dresses and phases of short, long, biggest day of my life feelings: "my daughter's getting married!" feelings flooding every cell in my body. I was obsessed about my dress, because of the meaning this day had to me. In the end, I found my sanity, and chose a simple long royal blue dress from "Ralph Lauren" for 119. dollars on sale. The long string of pearls gave it the glamor I it needed for a winter wedding in Switzerland. The fit winter and when I heard that the groom was wearing a blue die, and the grooms mother blue, I fell right into place. The dress was so affordable, I bought a second one exactly the same for "Iris" a cousin the groom, who had my daughter as her guest in her home during her last year of medical school. I wanted her to know that favor made her like a sister to me for life. It was also Iris that my daughter and her husband the Wedding Carriage! Last detail about my dress. I had it altered to fit my body, which for me is the key to making every dress you wear your own. Having it altered to show off your best assets is the key to feeling good in your clothes!

Remember your daughter's wedding is very emotional, you experience a million strange feelings, some are a little hard, like deliberately stepping back and letting your daughter own her entire day. It was the first time I did not feel like a mother, but notice my daughter was taking the throne. It's hard to put these feelings into words without teary up. I felt like my job as a mother was over. I wanted to have another glass of wine, I would suggest you avoid that second or third glass and work out all your emotions before the big day. That would be my number one tip!

How to Live to 100, or beyond to become a "SUPER CENTENARIAN!"


Secrets of the World's Longest Living People: “CENTENARIAN” a person who lives beyond the age of 100
Super-Centenarian, a person who has lived to the age of 110 or More, something achieved by only 1000.  Here are some of the things they had in common.

1.    Harvard Study: Being Lonely is worse, than
having a bad diet. Try Volunteer 2
hours a week and live where people respect those that live to 100!
2.    Add Seaweed to your diet.
3.    Drink mineral water running down from the mountains, or safe well water. Avoid
fluoride in city water.
4.   Exercise Daily
5.    Meditation lowers risk of cancer by ½, or Prayer.
6.    Play Mind Games to keep your brain sharp like cards, chess, and crossword puzzles.
7.   Breathe Deeply
8.   Get Married
9.   Don’t Dye Your Hair
10. Chew your food 30-60 times, and if in a prison, 150 to survive!
11.  Music in your home, releases endorphins. HUM or Sing in Shower
12.  Become Social, or get a DOG!
13. Laughing or what they call “INNER JOGGING”.
14. Eat 7 or 8 times more “organic” vegetables than Grass Fed Beef or Wild Fish. And only one or two pieces of fruit a day, because fruit has too much sugar. (Apricots, Berries and Cherries)
15. Green Tea Daily, when in Asia.
16. Eating WILD Fish from Cold Water: Fatty
Fish, like Wild Salmon, NOT Farm Fish!
17.  All these people groups over 110, the Super-Centenarian’s ate meat.
But, it was not from Animals eating processed foods, or in feedlots. These were
animals living in natural sunlight, eating bugs and grass. But, it’s the ratio,
eating tons and tons of vegetables! Meat, once a week.
18.  Compost your home garden; this adds more minerals to the soil.
19. Dairy: Goat or Sheep Cheese, Grass Fed Eggs
“weight baring chickens” not in cages, Raw Eggs, Clarified Butter, Goats Milk,
Sheep Milk, massive variety.
20.  Fermented foods, like Sauerkraut and Kefir, for Diverse Gut Bacteria.
21.  7-8 hours of sleep, even a nap if needed.
22. Change your genetics “give up all processed foods”, and man-made
supplements, and drink bone broth with marrow from grass fed beef.
23. “Healthy Bacteria” comes from healthy soil, playing with farm animals, and even playing in the mud. This gives “microbial diversity in intestinal health.” Pregnancy to age three should be spent with animals, eating from healthy soil and non-processed foods, and a full variety anti-inflammatory meals. In all things be thankful, don’t waste and trust the smallest cell in your left ear that “naturally” knows how to thrive!
24. Sleep 7 or 8 hours a night; take a nap if you feel like it.
25.  Get a Positive Attitude! Fall in Love with LIFE!
26.  No Process Foods Ever, No Sugar, and you’ll make to Super-Centenarian!
27. Use “Olive Oil”
28.  If you need sugar in a recipe, try “Date Sugar”. Date Sugar is made from dehydrated, ground dates and is used as you would brown
sugar.
29.  Drink at least 5 glasses of water a day.
30.  Simple Life: Get Lots of Friends and you won’t age!
31.  WILD TAKE AWAY, try Apricot Kernels (Prunus armeniaca) is the soft part inside the
seed of the apricot. It is said to be a good source of iron, potassium and
phosphorus, and one of the best sources of vitamin B17 (also known as amygdalin
and found in the seeds of fruits such as peaches, plums and apples. Also called
“apricot almonds” or “bitter almonds”, apricot kernels originated in Armenia
and are also native to Northern China, the Himalayans region and parts of Asia.
The Hanza eat these raw or ground into powder and sprinkled into curries,
soups, vegetables, fruit juice or cereal. There are two types of Apricot
kernels, bitter and sweet.  Sweet kernels
have a less overpowering taste, are better for snacking and have less
amygdalin, but it’s the bitter kernel that is renowned for its therapeutic
values. Bitter apricot kernels have been used as a cancer remedy in Russia
since 1845, and in the US since the 1920s. However, debate continues over its
effectiveness and toxicity. They have also long been used in Chinese medicine
for respiratory problems, indigestion, high blood pressure and arthritis.  

THE PROS:
Some researchers show that consuming large numbers of bitter kernels every day over your lifetime may ward off cancer and kill existing cancer.  
B 17 is a unique compound that is believed to work with the immune system to fight
malignant tumors. A reportedly non-toxic form is called laetrile and is a
controversial treatment used in some cancer clinics around the world. A
preliminary study by Kyung Hee University in Seoul,  Korea, in 2002 shows that amygdalin may
initiate programmed cell death in human prostate cancer cells. Another study
shows that amygdalin eases pain in rats. The Hunza people are considered living
proof of the health benefits of apricot kernels based in the remote Himalayan region
near West Pakistan, they are traditional apricot farmers and are believed to
consume 200 times more B 17 than Westerners do (about 30 to 50 apricot seeds a
day). The Hanza are also said to have low levels of cancer and high rates for
longevity. Food Standards Agency posted a health alert, claiming that consuming
20 to 30 kernels in a short period of time could result in cyanide poisoning
and death. However, cases of cyanide toxicity are rare. I think that if you do
not have the same diversity of bacterial that the Hunza people have you should
tread carefully with any wild new food. J
Soaking the bitter kernels in water is said to reduce the bitterness and levels
of amygdalin. I think I will try it!
32.  Get Lots of Friends, and Stay Positive and

Raw Food Diet


What do you eat on a raw food diet? My Answer in 60 seconds to the most beautiful song in the world. This week I will be in LA! I cannot wait to share what I am doing there...subscribe to my channel to get my weekly YouTubes! Kelly Granite

Washing Produce, even Organic : I soak all my produce in a large bowl of distilled water with 1/4-1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar, depending on size of bowl or size of you sink. This should kill most germs, and contamination.  Let soak for 15-20 min. Then empty dirty water and rinse again in clean distilled water. I also rub all dirt off the produce with a scrub brush or my hands.

The Anne Frank House | Amsterdam


My Visit to the Anne Frank House: 
I took a train from Antwerp to Amsterdam for my first visit to Holland. It was a couple days after the Paris Attack and I thought it appropriate to visit the Anne Frank house.

I stood where Anne's family hid for two years,  in an attic, behind a bookshelf, in a secret hiding place built by her father behind his jam business, in July 1942. I was surprised that it was in the heart of Amsterdam. It was Mr. Frank's business partner and his family who helped them.

The Frank family, along with one other family, a total of 8 lived in the dark, in silence, eating smelly year old Kale. Anne's father felt he had to try something to save his family. Anne wrote that she got tired of staring at stark walls, so her father pasted photos from a magazine on the walls. I looked at these photos still glued, a bit yellow but they offered hope. Our happy lives, looked like "fairytales." Her wish was only to run outside.

Anne Frank became sick with Typhus in the concentration camp and died 3 months before her 16th Birthday in March 1945. Her Diary, now a book "The Diary of Anne Frank" is a reminder of where we have been and never want to return....

Sneak-A-Peek Below!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song!

I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator.

The room went black and three pyramids projected on a movie screen.


"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp."

No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?"

I always wanted to sleep on the Nile!"

Raw. Vegan. Restaurants in San Francisco



"What A Wonderful World"....
I am grateful to still be in it, especially after losing a close friend last year to cancer.
Cheryl's loving, joy, and happiness could be felt this weekend in the energy of the city.
And her lose as well as millions of others, is all the more reason to look at our health, our diet and our drinking water. On the cover of People it states that "Elephants don't get cancer, but dogs do." So, what is the difference between Elephants and Dogs? Dogs drink the same water that we do, and breathe the same air.

By moving our diet away from processed foods to live whole foods, we give our cells the extra energy and vitality to fight off cancer and other diseases, and we fell better and look healthier.
I am starting to see "Live Vegan and Raw Restaurants popping up all over the world, and even more important, "Green Juice Bars with shots of Wheatgrass!" For me it's the greens, I eat a pound a day, or drink them, for the vitality I feel on the Raw Food Diet. To learn more subscribe to my youtube, or read my memoir below.

Washing Produce, even Organic : I soak all my produce in a large bowl of distilled water with 1/4-1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar, depending on size of bowl or size of you sink.

PS.  I huge thanks to Shannon for taking care of Cheryl on her final weeks, and for taking care of me this weekend.
With love, Kelly
