by Harris Jensen, MD

Editor, Good Day Journal

Many people have told me that audio books have become a new way for them to manage stress.  To listen to books takes the stress out of a long drive to work, rests the mind after work, and feeds ones intellectual curiosity.

But they cost alot too!

Audible.com is a great site for audio books that has a reasonable membership cost.

Live La Dolce Vita!

Soldo Vito In Empoli, Italy Brings Tuscan Beauty Into His Food And Life!

You Can Too!

by Harris Jensen, MD

Editor, Good Day Journal

Tuscany seems magical to the world.  Ten million visitors come to this area about the size of Colorado every year, and for good reason.  Something special is happening here, as it has for 3,000 years.  The people have a love for the sweet life (la dolce vita) that is infectious!

The sweet life?

Yes.  They find sweetness in great food.  

They cook lean meats and vegetables with aromatic herbs, and use olive oil to carry the wonderful bouquet of flavors to your taste buds.  Eat Tuscan stir fried vegetables with Tuscan pork as I did this June, and your taste buds want to stand up and applaud!  Mix paste of artichoke with thyme and other aromatic herbs freshly picked, and another taste sensation will fill your mouth! 

More!  Your taste buds want more!

No high fructose corn syrup, no sick "overfull feeling" and no high fat and high salt and high sugar ingredients.  This is natural food, slowly grown, slowly prepared, and bursting with flavor...and well overflowing with goodness.  The stuff is fresh and tastey.  This isn't American fast food.  This Tuscan food makes you feel full and feel good!

The goodness of nature is getting inside you.  

You aren't just eating Tuscany, you are thinking it, drinking it, living it.  Here's a video introduction to a Tuscan farm I recently visited where I learned more about living "The Sweet Life."

 

My family was invited by the family of Soldo and Katerina Vito to spend some time at their villa in June.   We found them on the site Vacation Rental By Owner.  We happily accepted their invitation.  My family had heard about Tuscany for years.  But was that just marketing?  Just hype?  What is there so special about Tuscany?  What is La Dolce Vita anyway besides the name of a movie?

Their farm was located right in the middle of the greatest places to visit in Tuscany.  They are located just outside of Empoli, and to the west is Florence, east is Pisa with its leaning tower, south is the medieval walled town of San Gimignano, and north is Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo.  Here's the map on that:
