    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, and full-circle Health coach.

    Today’s Topic: Reflections on last Thanksgiving Day.  

    Be Thankful poem, Author Unknown (read)


    There is nothing you can dream that you can’t achieve

    Have the courage to go after your dreams and believe

    Always remember you are beautiful and unique

    Never give up when going after what you seek

    Keep reminders around to remind you of your dreams

    Savor the present for it goes quicker than it seems

    Give more to others than you receive

    Inspire others with all that you achieve

    Value yourself. You are perfect for you

    Individuality is important so let it shine through

    Notice the small miracles all around you

    Greatness starts from within and is in all that you do


    Thanksgiving daily, not yearly. Personal reflections. Family Tradition.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Bread Recipe

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Radio Show Host, Author and a full-circle Health Coach.


    Today’s topic: Recipes

    original bread recipe:

    4 cups flour

    2 eggs 

    2 tsp salt

    2 tsp Fleishman’s dry yeast

    2 Tbl sugar

    12 oz lukewarm liquid

    Second version:

    3 cups flour

    ½ cup oats

    ½ cup rye flour

    Third version: same as 2

    6 scoops flax seed meal

    13 Tbl water = 2/3 cup  

    Fourth version

    3 cups bread flour

    ½ cup oats

    1/2 cup coconut flour

    ½ cup ground up avocado seeds 

    Fifth version: divide into 4, roll out each piece, then sprinkle some cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and a cut up fruit on flat piece, roll up, put back into pan but without the hook. Do this with all 4 pieces. Push it all down a bit, close lid, then set on 80 min bake.

    Due to high blood pressure I have been leaving the salt out. We don’t need a preservative, as we cut the bread into slices when it’s cold and freeze it so it stays fresh. Put it in the toaster when ready to eat and it tastes like fresh out of the oven again!

    Let me know how your bread turned out!

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Pang!

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder of Miclknight, where Health and Wellness are one. I am an Educator, Speaker, Radio Show Host, Fitness Trainer and a full circle health coach.


    Today’s topic: Pang

    What does it have to do with Get Healthy Now?

    Why this sound? How does it make you feel?

    Something or someone comes to an abrupt stop.

    Then what?


    X-Rays, shoulder dislocated, stiff due to 15 hrs delay

    ER Dr tried 3 x, put me out, shoulder in.

    Why am I telling this story?  Ways to get redirected after a pang. My reflections: glad it was not worse, glad I could get up, happy shoulder was put back in place, life goes on. After every fall or pang, get up and do, be and give your best again. No need to get depressed, no need to feel sorry for yourself, look at your life being fully balanced and bounce back. I chose my balance over imbalance just because I was in pain.

    In every situation we get to chose the outcome as long as we live.

    Your choice?

    Start laughing as quickly as possible as it releases the good, healing endorphins. It also helps you balance quicker and the pain subsides faster.

    OK, what comes after Pang? Get up!

    Don’t let a fall hinder you from following your dream. Sometimes we need to fall forward to get stronger and better at what we are doing,

    Pang! / Get up!

    Today’s Topic: Food & Recipes/Myths & Facts

    Do you listen to the news with all the controversial topics about healthy foods, 

    Ripley’s Believe it or Not game: listen, hear, think, look for scientific answers, substantiated answers?

    Dairy products: Yes / No

    Grains: Yes / No

    Meat: Yes / No

    Fruits and veggies: Yes / No

    Eggs: Yes / No

    Putting certain produce in the refrigerator: Yes / No

    With each question ask yourself Why / Why not?

    Are these Myths & Facts general ideas?

    Should they apply to everyone or according to individual needs?

    Are health, age/youth, activity level, mobility, etc. considered?

    Gift: http://www.teenink.com/poetry/all/article/265958/Nutritious-Food-Thats-What-I-Eat/

    Pers. Experience:

    Eggs: Yolk bad for cholesterol, too much fat…..

    Now science says that eggs are healthy for us and I no longer throw the yolk out. It actually contains a healthy fat, nutrients, …


    Always verify first before blindly believing. Hearing is one thing, believing another.

    When in doubt, ask your doctor, dietician, coach, counselor…. Or better yet, do your own research to verify.
