Five Fun Food Facts on Friday #2 (I couldn’t stop laughing at #5)

Welcome to the second F5!  This week I came across some very interesting food videos, recipes, information . . . and today I’m sharing it with you.  Enjoy the list and in the comments below I would really like to know which was most helpful, inspiring, or just filled you with joy.  


#1  Awesome Info graphic 

This printable infographic by Kris Carr is awesome.  We eat tons of these.  I buy mostly  canned–but with this cheat sheet I will make a greater effort to by them dried.  Can you guess what I’m talking about?

#2 Do you know why you need magnesium?  

MindBodyGreen is one of my favorite go-to websites for concise information like this article on  magnesium.

#3 My workout buddy!

Ok, so Rich Roll doesn’t really know that he is my workout buddy.  What he has done is create awesome podcasts about plant-based foods, nutrition, exercise, and how to change the world by how you live your life. Which is exactly what I want to do.   I’ve been working out since the beginning of January 2014 and I’ve lost 7  pounds!  Yeah for me!  I have a long way to go but I have a plan–4 days a week for 60 minutes on the elliptical (I’ve had to work up to this).  My workout burns over 700 calories and gives me a huge energy boost.  Thanks Rich my workouts enjoyable!  

Check out his podcast here.

#4 Do you eat beets?

No?  I love beets and think everyone should too!  Sorry, the 6-year-old with uncontrollable excitement that lives with me just came bursting out!  Beets are a food I am CRAZY excited about.  I love growing beet greens for the turtles.  I think they are awesome roasted.  I juice them twice a week with lemon, apple, and ginger–amazingly good and the color is phenomenal.  (See what I mean–I’m a little nutty when it comes to beets.)  Here is a post by my friend Kristy–she is an amazing cook, she is super fun and always makes me smile, and shares my love of beets and gnocchi.  

Come and see what she has created here.

#5 Just what is natural?

This is a hilarious “mockumentary” on what is NATURAL!  

What was your favorite?  Leave a number 1-5 in the comments!

      What do you listen to at the gym? I work out for 60 minutes and I like my podcast to be that long! I’m so demanding! Rich Roll has some long ones but they are so informative and inspiring. I always learn something new!

      Be Blessed.
