How To Cook Healthy Food That Taste Good

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: What You Know About Fruits

Everyone knows that consuming fresh fruit and vegetables can help us lead long and healthy lives. But most people don’t know that, when it comes to nutrition, all produce isn’t created equal.

Indeed, some fruit and vegetables are much more nutritionally dense than others.

 

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Do You Eat All The Fruit And Veggies

 

Given that we tend not to eat all of the fruit and veggies that we should, it’s important to make sure that those we choose pack the biggest nutritional bang possible.

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional PunchThe Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Vitamins And Minerals

Here are some that always come out on top:

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Vitamin A

When it comes to Vitamin A, which plays a critical role in many of the body’s functions, including vision, bone growth, and the immune system, carrots always win the race.

A half-cup of carrot juice provides 450% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of Vitamin A; one raw carrot will give you 175% of the RDA. Spinach, kale, cantaloupe, pumpkin, and apricots come in a respectable, though distant, second.

There’s only one food that beats out carrots: beef liver. Really, which would you rather have?

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Vitamin B6

To a large extent, Americans get most of their B vitamins from fortified cereals.

The Vitamin B group is critical to many cell functions, and is instrumental in, for example, carrying oxygen to tissues.

Good sources of Vitamin B6 include potatoes (35% RDA) and bananas (34% RDA).

Folate, another B vitamin, can be found in spinach, asparagus, mustard greens, green peas, and broccoli.

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Vitamin E

Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties and protects cells from the effects of free radicals.

Spinach and other leafy green vegetables, broccoli, kiwifruit, and mango are all good sources of Vitamin E.

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Iron

This abundant metal is critical in delivering oxygen to tissues, as well as in cell growth.

Legumes (like beans and lentils) are great sources of iron, as is spinach.

Popeye needed to keep the blood flowing to his muscles, right?

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional PunchThe Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Magnesium

About half of the body’s magnesium is in the bones, but the other half helps keeps organs functioning smoothly, the metabolism humming along, and tissues healthy. When it comes to fresh produce and magnesium, the greener the better. That’s because the molecules that give green vegetables their color contain magnesium. However, bananas, potatoes, and avocados also contain magnesium.

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Vitamin C

Vitamin C is crucial for a healthy metabolism and is has wonderful antioxidant properties.

Although we often association the vitamin with citrus fruits like oranges, there are many other fresh fruit and vegetables that have higher concentrations of Vitamin C. Guava, red peppers, and blackberries are wonderful sources of Vitamin C, as are broccoli and kiwifruit.

 

The Fruit and Vegetables that Pack a Nutritional Punch: Eat Raw For Best Effects

It’s important to keep in mind that, if you want to get the most vitamins and minerals from your produce, you should eat it raw.

Cooking vegetables drastically reduces their nutritional content, so if you must cook them, try stir-frying or steaming.

Likewise, because many nutrients sit close to the skins of vegetables, try to avoid peeling them.

Instead, give them a quick scrub with a veggie brush and some water, and eat the skins and all.

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: The Story Began

Two guys came up with the idea to attempt the World Record for longest comedy show. These guys are Chad Riden and D.J. Buckley. It started with an appeal for support through Indiegogo. I was one of the supporters that enabled me to have a spot on the show.

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: Let The Show Go On

Beginning noon April 12th, Nashville StandUp attempted to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” at The East Room in Nashville, TN.

This non-stop stand-up comedy marathon was an effort to put Nashville into the record books of comedy history. A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS’ Adjudicator was on site to certify it as an official new world record on 4/15/2015 at 8:04 pm. They not only broke the previous 3.3 day / 80 hour record, they more than doubled the time of the record. The non-stop schedule featured showcases, feature-length and headliner-length sets and surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune.

Being Apart Of History With Nashville Standup: My Experience

Speaking from my experience, It was an awesome experience, the crowd was great and the comedians were a joy to work with. This experienced not only made history but with this experience I believe everyone that participated are much better off as comedians.

This effort tested our abilities and helped us to push passed limits and barriers that we thought was impossible. I would like to thank the people who organized the event, Chad Riden, D.J. Buckley, Mary Jay Berger, and the Nashville Standup group for the opportunity to be one of the performers on the historic lineup.

Broken Record Comedy ShowBroken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: The Atmosphere

It was great to be in an atmosphere where there were people working together to achieve a goal. One person got up and said that they never did or been apart of something of this magnitude before in his life. Going through the experience was like something out of a movie and to see the joy, drive, and cheers of the comedians as they pushed through days of little to no sleep till the task was completed.

We also pushed to go passed the previous record by over two times when the show ended at 4:20 AM. I even got a chance to hold the certificate that was given for the record being broken.

Other comedians on the lineup included diverse comedians from the Nashville Standup Community, The Huntsville Standup Community, The Atlanta Standup Community just to name a few. Also headliners like Hanibal Buress, Killer Beaz, and Eric Andre made a performance on this historic show.

It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I am glad I was a part of it.

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: Information On Nashville Standup

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing standup comedy scene by supporting the Nashville-based comedians that help make the Music City a great place to see live comedy.

How To Make Money Work For You Part 2

How To Make Money Work For You

How To Make Money Work For You: Here Comes The Good Part

We went over how people fall into the trap of working for money in part1. If you have not read it, I encourage you to click here to read it. In this part we are going to go over how to make money work for you.

How To Make Money Work For You: Story of Horatio

A good-looking, lazy young fellow, was the apprentice boy, Horatio. His employer said, “Horatio, did you ever see a snail?” “I – think – I -have,” he drawled out. “You must have met him then, for I am sure you never overtook one,” said the “boss.” Your creditor will meet you or overtake you and say, “Now, my young friend, you agreed to pay me; you have not done it, you must give me your note.” You give the note on interest and it commences working against you; “it is a dead horse.”

The creditor goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning better off than when he retired to bed, because his interest has increased during the night, but you grow poorer while you are sleeping, for the interest is accumulating against you.

 

How To Make Money Work For You: Money Can Burn You?

Money is in some respects like fire; it is a very excellent servant but a terrible master. When you have it mastering you; when interest is constantly piling up against you, it will keep you down in the worst kind of slavery. But let money work for you, and you have the most devoted servant in the world.

It is no “eye-servant.” There is nothing animate or inanimate that will work so faithfully as money when placed at interest, well secured. It works night and day, and in wet or dry weather.

 

How To Make Money Work For YouHow To Make Money Work For You: End Up Better Than You Were Before

Imagine living in the blue-law State of Connecticut, where the old Puritans had laws so rigid that it was said, “they fined a man for kissing his wife on Sunday.” Yet these rich old Puritans would have thousands of dollars at interest, and on Saturday night would be worth a certain amount; on Sunday they would go to church and perform all the duties of a Christian.

On waking up on Monday morning, they would find themselves considerably richer than the Saturday night previous, simply because their money placed at interest had worked faithfully for them all day Sunday, according to law!

How To Make Money Work For You: Don’t Let It Work Against You

Do not let it work against you; if you do there is no chance for success in life so far as money is concerned. John Randolph, the eccentric Virginian, once exclaimed in Congress, “Mr. Speaker, I have discovered the philosopher’s stone: pay as you go.” This is, indeed, nearer to the philosopher’s stone than any alchemist has ever yet arrived.

Now you have acquired some key items to help you on your journey. Be sure to take action as soon as possible because there is no better time to get started than now.

How To Make Money Work For You: Don’t Fall Into The Trap

Young men starting in life should avoid running into debt. There is scarcely anything that drags a person down like debt. It is a slavish position to get in, yet we find many a young man, hardly out of his “teens,” running in debt.

He meets a friend and says, “Look at these new clothes I got.” He seems to look upon the clothes as so much given to him; well, it frequently is so, but, if he succeeds in paying and then gets trusted again, he is adopting a habit which will keep him in poverty through life. Debt robs a man of his self-respect, and makes him almost despise himself.

 

How To Make Money Work For You: The Snare Has Been Set

Grunting and groaning and working for what he has eaten up or worn out, and now when he is called upon to pay up, he has nothing to show for his money; this is properly termed “working for a dead horse.”

How To Make Money Work For You: Is It Better Than Manure?

I do not speak of merchants buying and selling on credit, or of those who buy on credit in order to turn the purchase to a profit. The old Quaker said to his farmer son, “John, never get trusted; but if thee gets trusted for anything, let it be for ‘manure,’ because that will help thee pay it back again.”

How To Make Money Work For You: There Is A Way Out

Mr. Beecher advised young men to get in debt if they could to a small amount in the purchase of land, in the country districts. “If a young man,” he says, “will only get in debt for some land and then get married, these two things will keep him straight, or nothing will.”

This may be safe to a limited extent, but getting in debt for what you eat and drink and wear is to be avoided. Some families have a foolish habit of getting credit at “the stores,” and thus frequently purchase many things which might have been dispensed with.

 

How To Make Money Work For You: Zero Percent Interest……Gotcha

It is all very well to say; “I have sixty days to pay it off, and if I don’t have the money the creditor will think nothing about it.” There is no class of people in the world, who have such good memories as creditors. When the sixty days run out, you will have to pay. If you do not pay, you will break your promise, and probably resort to a falsehood. You may make some excuse or get in debt elsewhere to pay it, but that only involves you the deeper.

How To Make Money Work For You:Look Out For Part 2

If this sound like you, then have no fear because there is a part 2 to the story and you will gain insight to come out. Be sure to look out for it or wait till I provide the link to it.
