Vitamins: The Rule of 7

Vitamines are in abundance at any Walgreens or other drug stores. Clearly, we all need vitamins, but how to choose the right one? Well, since most vitamins in the pill/capsule form do not get absorbed by the body and are simply discarded as waste, fresh fruit and vegetables are the only way to go. Here is the rule of 7.

Eat at least 7 fruit or vegetables a day.
Count 1 as a full serving: 1 apple, 1 pear (or 1 cup).

Getting to 7 is not that hard.
Consider breakfast with potatoes and eggs (2 potatoes)
Banana for snack (1)
Salad with lunch or dinner (2-3 veggies)
Strawberry/orange for desert (1)

2+1+3+1 = 7

Add carrots with hummus snack and it will bring you up to 10, a healthy source of vitamins for you. Notice if your body becomes tired or sick on the days when you don’t follow the Rule of 7.
Make up for it the next day!

Stay healthy my friends.

Namaste.
