Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
– Movie Quote from ‘Rocky Balboa’
A vitamin is an organic substance required in tiny amounts essential for the human metabolism to work properly. Vitamins are found in foods or produced by our bodies. They can also be manufactured commercially as health vitamin supplements. Insufficient vitamins in our diet, can cause serious ailments.
What about Minerals?
Like vitamins, minerals are needed by the body in small amounts to help it function properly and to maintain strength. Examples of minerals we require are calcium, iron, and potassium..
Health Foods and Vitamins
The key to a healthy diet is to maintain the proper balance and intake of ‘good’ foods.
Foods like grains, fish, and vegetables are healthy when eaten as a balanced diet, because taken together they will supply us with all of the necessary nutrients. It is this balance of nutrients obtained from vegetables, meat, and other foods that makes diets healthy. Consuming only ‘healthy’ foods is not enough if your diet is not balanced. For example, dairy products have a fairly high fat content. Removing these from your diet may reduce the fat, but it will also lower the intake of calcium and riboflavin that your body needs.
Natural Sources of Vitamins from Healthy Food
Foods which provide us with vitamin A include nectarines, oranges, cantaloupe, carrots, spinach, broccoli, butter, eggs, milk, fish oil and liver (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb).
Found in whole grains foods like oats and wheat, peas, beans, leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits. Seafood, eggs, milk , yogurt, and meat can also provide us with this vitamin. Our bodies can also produce some types of B vitamin.
Can be found in good quantities in citrus fruits like orange, and grapefruit as well as in other fruits (cantaloupe, strawberries) Vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes, and cabbage are good sources.
Egg yolk, milk and fish liver oil are rich in vitamin D. The body also uses sunlight to synthesize vitamin D.
Vitamin E is present in whole grains, wheat germ, cereals, bread, nuts, seeds, egg yolks and sardines. It is also found in leafy green vegetables like salads and cabbage.
Do we need them? Well if we ate well at every meal we probably would not need to take any vitamins supplements to maintain a normal healthy lifestyle.
The focus of this page is getting the right nutrition in the form of health food and vitamins. However in today’s environment, eating properly all the time can be a challenge, so we often turn to supplements to help.
Here are some of the key ones:
Fish Oil and vitamin E supplements are very beneficial and should top your supplement list
Vitamin C is also good and helps the body fight infections.
B Complex supplements provide useful anti-oxidants needed by your body.
You should always focus on the health food source for vitamins, because they are ingested naturally into your system through the normal breakdown of food. But taking the above supplements will not hurt either.

Trim silver skin or connective tissue off tenderloins with a very sharp thin knife.
Place tender loins on a nonstick cookie sheet with a rim. Coat tenderloins in a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, rubbing vinegar into meat. Drizzle tenderloins with extra-virgin olive oil, just enough to coat. Cut small slits into meat and disperse chunks of cracked garlic cloves into meat. Combine steak seasoning blend or coarse salt and pepper with rosemary and thyme and rub meat with blend. Roast in hot oven 20 minutes.
Let meat rest, transfer to a carving board, slice and serve.
“My mix is based on a recipe that my childhood best friend’s mother, Mrs. Harper, had for Chex Mix. It became an annual ritual for me to call her to ask for the recipe yet again. 🙂 This mix is so very, very yummy and decadent! Good thing I only make it once a year…”

Elizabeth Edwards died at her home on Tuesday, December 7, after a long battle with Breast Cancer. Doctors stopped all treatment for Edwards because the cancer had spread to her liver and bones. Instead of remaining at the hospital, she decided to go home to spend her last days with her family. When faced with the inevitable decision to be strong in her last days, Edwards decided to embrace death because it is a natural part of life. In her Monday Facebook statement, she said, “The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered.”
Making a patient with cancer that has spread all over comfortable is really difficult. When breast cancer spreads in the body, bone is the most common place it goes. It’s hard to think of bone as living tissue, but breaking an arm or a leg hurts because our bones are very much alive. Uncontrollable, malignant growth in bone can be excruciatingly painful, especially if the cancerous growths impinge on nerves.
While most dying patients are confined to a hospital in ICU with IV tubes hooked up to them, Edwards made the choice to spend her final days with the people she cared for the most. And in this case, it was the right choice.
