Dear Veg Abby Juice Recipe / Mar Vista Green Fall Festival October 3, 2009

Dear Veg Abby Tip of the Day:
Take a page out of Dear Veg Abby Healthy Juice Recipe book literally! Beta-carotene in carrots converts to vitamin A and is an anti-oxidant. A diet high in beta-carotene is shown to reduce cardiovascular disease, some cancers like lung cancer, improves skin texture and appearance, and everyone knows it is good for eyesight. Lycopene in tomatoes is found to help prevent prostate cancer in men.


Instead of reading about things I've done I thought you might like to know about an upcoming event beforehand so you have a chance to go yourself! The Mar Vista GREEN Fall Festival is coming Saturday, October 3rd, 10am-4pm at the Mar Vista Recreational Center!  Learn about composting, mulching, drought surviving plants, and conservation. Watch a puppet show. Have your face painted. Jumpers and games for kids too. I'm sure my friend Renee will be there volunteering since she sent me the flyer.
