Go Go Gooseberry — Why They’re Super

Forget Flintstones chewables — kiwis are filled with essential vitamins, too! One medium kiwi packs 5 percent of the daily recommended amount of folate and 117 percent of daily vitamin C. Plus, this tangy fruit provides 38 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K, a nutrient often missingfrom people’s diets that is essential for bodily functions like normal blood clotting. One cup of sliced kiwi (about two medium fruits) also contains 273 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, which is important for the growth and repair of tissues in every part of the body. (One cup of oranges, on the other hand, only contains 160 percent.) These guys got minerals covered, too. Kiwis offer a variety of nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, and manganese. And get this — one cup provides more potassium than

With only a few ingredients that each pack big flavor and the warm comfort of the melted, gooey cheese, these stuffed tomatoes are a regular late afternoon pick-me-up. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already. Try using goat or sheep’s milk cheese, as it’s sometimes easier to digest than cow’s milk cheese (and it has a more decadent texture and flavor.). Whatever you choose as a filling, you can’t go wrong with this recipe.

6 Ingredients

6 tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more to grease pan
3/4 cup crumbled feta
Handful parsley
Salt
Pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice tops off of each tomato about 1/2 inch down from stem, making a cap. Set caps aside. Using a spoon, scoop out flesh, being careful not to pierce skin.
Lightly grease a glass baking dish with olive oil, and space tomatoes

Back in the day, there were only two kinds of exercise, cardio and weights. But now, there’s a new one: “high-intensity.”

Developed by Drs. Jade and Keoni Teta, The New Me Diet focuses on high-intensity training and nutrition to trigger the body’s fat-burning hormones.

And, using a questionnaire which determines your body’s metabolism, The New Me Diet says you can lose up to15 pounds in 3 weeks.An overview of The New Me Diet illustrates the four key tenants of the fitness regime, and how it can work for you.
“Intelligent Exercise”
Instead of long, drawn out cardio workouts, like for running miles and miles, Me goes with high-intensity spurts, involving circuit resistance training with heavy weights, short rest periods, which last only thirty one minutes.

Creators of Me claim this can spark the “Metabolic Effect” – or ME – leading to increased fat burning for 48 hours after th
