Hello everyone and thank you for visiting….
To be really honest, I never thought that I would be writing aboutPickle Juice!!
I remember when my children, especially my son, (I have three daughters and one son), would terrorize his sisters saying he had special powers after taking a drink of Pickle Juice!! The girls actually thought he did have special powers, and would giggle and run from him… those were the good old days… we all have beautiful memories of our children, happy times.
When you sweat you lose electrolytes, sodium and potassium. I know a few marathon runners that struggle with replacing fluids after a long run. The choices we have are; PowerAde, made by Cocoa Cola has 21 g. of sugar per serving; Gatorade, a 12 oz. serving has 21 g. of sugar, the bottle that you buy is 32 oz., do the math. (56g of sugar)! Propel, has 4 g. of sugar, but the sugar is Splenda, fakesugar. Also not a good choice. This is frustrating. Everyone is working out hard and filling up with sugar as a reward.. the labels promote vitamins, and minerals, and the NFL drinks it and pours it all over themselves, why wouldn't we think it was the best drink out there.
Drink something that can replenish these fluids and be beneficial to your body in recovering after a workout.
Unlike sports drinks, pickle juice provides electrolytes, potassium and sodium without the sugar. It has no fat and about 70 calories per cup. Pickle juice can help control blood sugars in type 2 diabetes, and aids in digestion. Fermented foods such as cabbage, brussel sprouts, sauerkraut, act to do the same. Dill pickles contain quercetin, is a natural compound which helps our immune system, endurance and longevity, an anti-inflammatory enzyme.
Clean and organize a space. It makes you feel so good. Yesterday while watching my granddaughter, we decided to surprise her mommy. We picked a closet at my daughters house, and organized it for her. We went to Lowes and purchased some clear plastic bins with lids. Separated all of the items in the closet, (hair, nails, meds, etc.) then placed them in the containers of matching items. It is a time consuming project, but the rewards are great. It looked so nice! She loved it.
The color,Red– it is usually associated with blood, stop, danger, but also represents love, strength, power and devotion.
…..remember to make a memory every day and don't apologize for who you are…..
