You all know I love me some Oprah.  My only regret about loving Oprah so much is that I started way to late in my life loving her advice.  Maybe some of you don't love her quite as much as I do, but I love that she takes all of the good lessons from her life and shares it with us in an effort to help us to become better people.

When Cade and I first got married we had some good friends.  My friend had some major depression issues and some other chemical imbalances and many many people only saw her for her chemical imbalances.  

If they only had taken time to get to know the amazing girl that she is, their lives would have been forever blessed for having known her.  She is they type of person that would literally give you the shirt off her back if she knew it would help you.

She taught me a very important lesson that I will forever have in my heart.  Seek to see the good each person has to offer.  Nobody is perfect and if you truly seek and see them for the good that is within, you will see how truly beautiful they are.  Since then I look at the people in my life with that perspective.  Wouldn't the world be a wonderful place if everyone looked at each other in that light?  
"It takes at least a pound of vegetables to make a glass of juice," says Lauren Slayton, a registered dietitian in New York City. "So drinking juice is a very efficient way to consume more fruits and vegetables." Most of the bottled versions here contain both fruit and vegetable juices in varying proportions. Remember that fruit-heavy blends are packed with sugar and calories, so keep portions reasonable—say, a glass a day—and make sure to include whole fruits and vegetables in your diet as well.
