Spring = Renewal

I am motivated to take this season by storm! I'll be trying new, healthy recipes, I have signed up for the spring 5% challenge, and there will be lots of exercise getting gardens ready and trying to keep tumbleweeds from piling up.

This is going to be a great season!

Sharing another little tid-bit I read (in Womans World Magazine):

Drinking tomato juice is an easy, convenient, inexpensive way to get lycopene, selenium, and Vitamins A & C into your diet. Tomatoes contain many powerful compounds, and the bottled or canned juice, which is made from cooked tomatoes, makes these compounds more readibly absorbed in our bodies. Plus the thickness of the juice is very satisfying & makes you feel full.

Hint: Champions, if you are doing the Wk #4 Challenge - EAT A RAINBOW, think RED . . . check! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you: Gain energy from eating some vitamin C-rich foods.

Over the next few days, concentrate on adding foods rich in vitamin C to your meals or snacks. There are plenty of options, including red or green bell pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, and papaya. Or get a liquid dose with a glass of orange, grapefruit, or vegetable juice. A chewable vitamin C is also a viable option (I find this easiest, actually).

A deficiency in vitamin C may deplete your levels of carnitine (a substance that helps your body burn fat for energy) by as much as 50%. As you'd expect, that can make you feel a lot less energetic! Many of us don't get the C we need, so adding one vitamin C-rich food can help you bring those levels up and keep you going strong throughout the day.
