Drinking water is a very vital part of living. Most tissues including muscle, skin, and organs are over 70% water. Water keeps you going throughout the day. It's also good for your skin too; soda and sometimes even juice may cause most teens to acquire acne. Sodas may be a good treat from time to time but if your thirsty, I'm pretty sure that if you drink an alternative to water you certainly aren't quenching your thirst. Drink more water. I bet you will be happier and make healthier choices for the rest of the day.

Fruit to me is like the best food on the planet. As a matter of fact it is the best food on the planet, for your body at least. There are so many reasons why people should eat 2-4 servings of fruit a day or more. For one because fruit is 100% bad cholestrol free and it stimulates memory cells. Did you know that fruit is the only food in the world that consist if 80% water and water is basically what your body runs off water so therfore fruit is very good for you. Fruit is also inexspinsive so go visit you closest grocery store and buy some fruit!!
Today we made these blueberry cream muffins that were so good. We made two different batches of them.In the first batch we put 2 cups of sour cream but in the second batch (which tasted better)we switched it up and only put one cup of sour cream and a cup of milk instead. i didn't think it would come out that good but it turned out better than the original muffins. Man those muffins were good! :)
I think farmville is a very good app. on facebook. it gives you the opportunity to have a farm, if it happens to be an inconvenience for you. I live in oakland, in an apartment so i don't have anywhere to plant things; farmville gives me a wide open yard to plant things in. You can grow them then harvest them to gain more coins. Also you can buy livestock and harvest what they have to give.You can give animals & plants to other farmvillers as well. There are a lot of people on farmville so you can add them as your neighbors in the neighborhood of farmville. Don't be a stranger though, visit other farms and you might earn something. So check it out, it's pretty fun. =]

I know there are many people that have experienced greenish rings around their eggs after hard boiling them. The reason is you're boiling them too long and they are becoming overcooked and sometimes a greenish ring will show when you cut your egg open. The green ring is the iron and sulfur compound in the egg, its completely safe to eat and taste normal but boiling them extra long harms the amount of protein in the eggs...So be sure to time the eggs when you boil them,it only takes about 20 min to fully cook eggs and then they're ready to eat..

Collard greens is vegetable that has been around for generations. Most people when they think of collard greens they picture "soul food". Collard Greens is the oldest vegetable of the cabbage family. The most remembered time of collard greens being around was when African slaves migrated to the southern colonies. That’s when the famous "southern style" was created. This way of preparing greens came because of a need to provide reasonable food for their families and satisfy their hunger with the scraps that was thrown out from the master kitchen. In those scraps they often found ham hocks, pig’s feet, and the top of greens and with these leftovers they made the famous southern greens. A tradition that people in Africa do is drink the juice that comes from the greens that is called "pot likker". Now in modern day times for families that are trying to be healthy they use turkey instead of using pork. Collard greens are often ate in southern culture. The entrees commonly ate with collard greens is baked or hot water corn bread, fried chicken and black eyed peas. To find a healthy way to cook collard greens click the link:

Most commercially produced chicken eggs intended for consumption are unfertilized. So chickens that are owned by big companies and have their eggs sent to a grocery store are not fertilized by roosters...How weird is that!!

Eggs, Eggs, Eggs... They come round or oval and are laid by female of any number of different species. Most edible eggs consist of protective shells that protect the albumen (egg white) and the vitellus (egg yolk). Every part of eggs is edible and they are a good source of protein and choline.

Every Saturday I wake up a little earlier than I'd like to in order to walk to my neighborhood farmer's market. It's about a 20 minute stroll from my house, but returning with my arms full of fresh produce makes it well worth the walk. The Grand Lake farmer's market captures so much of what I love about the Bay. Not only is the produce local, extremely fresh, and always delicious, but there are about as many kinds of people shopping there as there are varieties of vegetables. There is live music, ranging from jazz to Latin to country, and I always see lots of adorable, energetic kids jumping around in the bounce house. And if you just can't wait to get home to eat, you can pick up a treat from one of the exotic food vendors selling everything from sweet potato pie to Afghan flatbread called Bolani. Going to the farmer's market with my family and friends is a ritual I couldn't live without.
