Got Sun?

Yesterday was one of those "a few in a row" overcast, rainy days in Regina when everyone yearns for the sun to come back.

Although it's never gone anywhere, it did prompt one lady I know to mention how little energy she had and how tired she felt. "I need the sun" she yelped.

This got me thinking, what is it that people can do during the non Sunny days to make sure that they have sustainable energy to get them through those days when the sun doesn't peak through those clouds.

This is what I can assure you of. Drink and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables - foods that get direct sunlight. Green leafies are ideal. You know, the ones that grow in gardens that absorb sun, bloom and produce tasty treats for us. Photosynthesis. These foods provide the same or similar fuel to what we get from the sun.

Juice them, make salads with them, wrap with them, or just enjoy them as they are.

Here's what you do if you don't have a garden and you're not next to a grocery store or you live in a downtown urban center with no access to those wonderful treats. Go to your nearest juice bar and order your favorite blend of freshly made juice (not the syrupy variety ready for adding to smoothies - this will have the opposite effect!).

While you're there, ask for that shot of wheat grass too. Have them add it right in to the juice or shoot it like you're at your last night out with the guys/gals and savour the moment. The additional chlorophyll with really jump start your day and provide you with lasting energy through the week.

Have fun with your (awesome whole) food!
