Orange Ya Glad It’s Friday?!

January 21, 2011

Happy Friday!!!

It is Dunkin Donuts Coffee Day and Grocery Shopping Day for me!

This morning, I got the toasted almond flavored coffee from Dunkin Donuts.  I thought it would taste good with my vanilla almond milk…and it does, but I really miss the pumpkin coffee.

I used to get that flavor so often that the employees would refer to me as “Pumpkin Girl” and even offered to sell me a tub of the syrup (I declined because I thought that bringing home a 20 gallon tub of pumpkin syrup might be a bit obsessive).

At one point during the fall, I was consuming so much pumpkin (canned pumpkin, pumpkin butter, pumpkin beer, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread…) that my husband was worried that I’d turn orange.

Well, I’m pleased to report that orange foods (as well as other colorful veggies and fruits) are one of the best ways to obtain an orange healthy glow to your skin! 

Among the foods that are good for the skin:

Vegetable juice
Pumpkin seeds
Flaxseed
Walnuts
Leafy vegetables
Carrots
Sweet potatoes
Blueberries
Salmon
Tomatoes
Kiwi
Dark chocolate

I’d much rather have a healthy glow naturally than through the use of beauty products.  Plus, you can’t eat those products. 😉

In keeping with the theme of a colorful diet, I’ll be eating a very colorful salad today for lunch.  There are beets and 1/2 a sweet potato hidden in there as well.

Love it!

Have a great day and try to eat something colorful! 🙂

      It was a little embarrassing in front of the other customers, but it was kind of funny at the same time. 🙂

    I love that dark chocolate is on the list. In that case, I’ll eat for my health 🙂
