I love that this is photo caused a debate! All the current guesses are wrong! For now, I'll leave it a mystery, because I'll be blogging about it soon. *grin*

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. emoticon emoticon

"The past doesn't define you, your present does.
It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes.
Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen."
-Jillian Michaels
