Did you know that Arugula is one of the best leafy greens that you can eat for healthy bones?
Just one uncooked cup of this peppery little green has 16 mg Calcium and 11 mcg vitamin K. The vitamin K helps your body absorb the calcium in the arugula, for better osteoporosis prevention!
In addition, arugula contains 4.7 mg Magnesium, 36.9 mg Potassium and 1.5 mg Vitamin C. What a powerhouse vegetable! Move aside, Kale!
I know that arugula is not a traditional holiday food, but perhaps you can set a goal to eat at least four salads a week during the next three weeks, and include arugula in your salad? Or, if you prefer cooked arugula, here’s a recipe for scallops over arugula that’s one of my favorites!
Now, let’s talk end of the year planning – I can’t believe that 2022 is ending in a couple of weeks!
Today I’m sharing a process that I like to do at the end of the year to help me remember my successes. Often, we simply think about what didn’t go well this year. I certainly won’t forget having had a bad case of COVID, but I had to search my memory to remember that this is the first Thanksgiving in over a decade that my daughter was here to celebrate with us!
So here is a great tool to track your year in review through four questions. It’s well worth the time it will take you, I use it every year. You’ll feel MUCH better after you complete it!
Grab a pen and paper, or set up a file on your computer, and sit in a quiet space so you can think about the year. I always keep my Daytimer (yes, I still use a paper Daytimer!) with me to look back and jog my memory:
- What went well?
- What was a challenge?
- What did you learn?
- What will you do differently?
As you enjoy and experience the last month of 2022, these questions will help guide you to plan for next year.
Here’s to celebrating you!
