BONE UP WITH VEG ABBY / COFFEE GIRL SAYS PUMPKIN PANCAKES ARE FALLING IN A SUNDANCE

Dear Veg Abby Healthy Bones Tip of the Day
A great way to get calcium from greens is juicing. Kale is the best leafy green to juice or eat for high calcium content.  It has approximately 200 mg. per cooked serving, so juice 5 servings and get 1000 mg. of calcium, which is the recommended daily requirement according to the USDA for women 35-50. Younger adult women need 1200 and older adult women require 1500 mg. Children require 800 mg. and infants 600 mg. Women require more calcium than men due to frequent hormonal changes and times of pregnancy. Kale is a low oxalate leafy green and those absorb calcium the best along with some vitamin D. Enjoy 15 minutes a day in the sun as Vitamin D bone nutrition. Spinach is a high oxalate green so is not as easily absorbed into the bones.

Bone Up and Stay Bone Healthy! 



PUMPKIN PANCAKES ARE FALLING IN A SUNDANCE


Griddle up some pumpkin pancakes this Thanksgiving month. You can either buy pumpkin pancake mix or add some pumpkin spice to your ordinary pancake batter and make them extra special. 


An even better idea is to heat up the waffle maker and pour the pumpkin batter in. Pop out fresh smelling orangy pumpkin waffles. I like to use agave syrup on mine. Some people I know like to sprinkle chocolate chips on top AND in the batter in the waffle maker. I think pumpkin chips would be neat to add if I could find any.

What are delicious pumpkin waffles without a cup of pumpkin coffee?  Just add pumpkin spice into your coffee bean grind and brew up in your best coffeemaker. Pour a cup of pumpkin coffee and dash a sprinkle of some more pumpkin spice on top. Inhale, exhale, enjoy.







This coffee cup says "Sundance" but it appears backwards in the photo. Sundance Film Festival is coming up in January next year. Now is the time to start planning your trip if you want to go and enjoy skiing, bars, parties, and movie-going amongst independent filmmakers, actors, and some stars. The films shown are the new and upcoming films that may or may not make it to the box office depending on if they land distribution at places like this festival. It is an easygoing Hollywood crowd on vacation together basically. Good and goofy times for all to be had. Think about it.
