Top your greens with berries or mandarin oranges. A study shows they also ramp up energy. Vitamin C helps the body absorb the fatigue-fighting iron in leafy veggies, so you get more out of them! In fact, we usually absorb only about 15% of the iron we eat, but vitamin C doubles that amount by making it easier to digest.
Woman’s World Issue Sept 14, 2009.
Hello, my blogger friends. I always look for ways to eat much healthier and look for recipes or ways to eat in different magazines I like to purchase. This week, I bought Woman’s World and this little article intrigued me. I thought I’d give it a whirl and came home to make this for me.
I not only added mandarin oranges and spinach leaves, but I also added sliced red bell pepper, red onion, and carrots. I also grilled some chicken tenders in some olive oil and added it to my salad. I cannot tell you how delicious this was! I get tired of eating heavy meals that leave you feeling blah. This was perfect! :) I hope y’all try this! I’m telling you it was yummy!
