Today is TERRIFIC TUESDAY
And I am celebrating the end of summer today...
First on my list today is a slice of watermelon.
I found this cute little guy at the grocery story yesterday so I thought he was probably just the right size for me.
Then I'm either going to have a glass of Iced
tea or Lemonade...Maybe both.
These are my favorite summer foods. At least the ones i have the most often and they all things that are good for you!
Think back to when you were a child and when during the summer months, the pinnacle of cookouts and family gatherings was always the cold juicy watermelon that was for desert. Watermelons have tremendous health benefits that anyone should take advantage of every year.
There’s simply no denying that a daily spot of tea does the body good. Tea contains high levels of antioxidants, some of which are called polyphenols, flavonoids, and catechins, and all of which take on the “free radicals” in the body and prevent them from harming the healthy cells on board
Tea also contains flouride which benefits your teeth and has bacteria killing properties which helps control bad breath and the formation of plaque
White tea has more antioxidants than any other tea.
Green tea has more catechin antioxidants than black tea since black tea goes through more processing.
Freshly brewed teas have more polyphenol antioxidants than instant or bottled teas
Study finds tea drinkers have lower blood pressure
Black tea may lower “bad” cholesterol
A glass of lemonade a day may keep your wrinkles at bay
drinking lemon juice not only cleanses your skin internally by flushing out toxins from your system, but also adds a youthful glow to the skin by rejuvenating it.
