1. What Brassica vegetables are:

These vegetables rank among the top 10 healthiest and give you the most folate which is a B vitamin which is naturally present in these vegetables and an important vitamin for pregnant woman. However a study of 1391 women released in May 2016 revealed that excessive amounts of folate may increase the risk for autism.
So the old saying “Everything in moderation” is very relevant with this vitamin.

In my opinion a great way to ruin a Kit Kat bar.

Foods That contain Calcium

As we all aware it is much better for our bodies, if we eat our vitamins and not pop them as pills. There are exceptions of course. A digestive system that is not what it should be, may not absorb all the minerals from food and we become deficient in certain vitamins, that is when popping a pill may help.

Keep eating those fresh veggies.

Oh Goodie Kale!

Have tried eating this stuff in many different ways, but I have to say it is not my favorite green. As you can see it has many nutritional benefits if you can stomach it. Just not for me.

Did You Know – 1/10/2012

Here is some information that I read in the Latest Mens Health magazine.


1. Sharpen the memory – When you find yourself struggling to remember, close your eyes. Research from England’s University of yorkreveals that doing this can significantly enhance your recall because it reduces your cognitive load. Your brain then can focus on retrieving the information you need or forgot. (I will need to close my eyes most of the day )


2. Meals at their desk – According to the American Dietetic Association and ConAgra Foods 83% of U.S. workers eat their meals at their desk. That is considered a health risk if it is not cleaned regularly.


3. Increase your metabolism – According to the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism there will be an 24% increase in your metabolism in 60 minutes after you drink 16 ounces of water


4. Stop Tweeting – The NFL players and coaches must stop tweeting 90 minutes before the game.


5. Super Bowl vs Sex – 7 in 10 women would rather watch the Super Bowl than have sex. (The boys are probably to busy watching the game anyway)


6. Priciest beer – Cost of a beer at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis is $9.

Saving Tip For Today « 9/24/2010

If you are eating out

Share your meals. Get your children to share also.
How many times do you eat out at a restaurant and you are unable to finish your meal.
Choose a meal that both you and your partner enjoy, ask the waiter to bring you two plates and split the meal.
The children also very rarely finish their meal so have them share a meal as well.
You will probably save up to 20 dollars on your bill.
