See the red line❓I think most of you are living above the line‼️ This means that you are more than likely vitamin D deficient, and if you aren’t deficient right now, you probably will be this winer 😱
What exactly is vitamin D ➡️ Vitamin D is necessary for building and maintaining healthy bones ☠️ That's because calcium, the primary component of bone, can only be absorbed by your body when vitamin D is present ☝🏼 Although vitamin D is available in both foods and supplements, sun exposure is the most significant source for most people ☀️
Food sources of vitamin D:
▪️Fortified Orange Juice
It is estimated that approximately 50% of children and adults worldwide are vitamin D deficient 🤓 It may be causing a wide range of health issues 👎🏼 These health issues include:
▪️Type 1 diabetes
➡️ That’s a lot of health issues 😬
My recommendation to you is to have a vitamin D supplement on hand during the winter months👏🏼 Interested in what vitamin D supplement and dosage is best, feel free to reach out🤗 #FactsFriday#ChefGirlRD

One of the greatest mistakes any business owner (or any person for that matter) can make is to assume that because an issue doesn't directly affect them that it has no impact on their overall success. #FACTSFriday

#factsfriday Today is World #alzheimers Day! My personal journey with this disease started with my now angel mother. I learned so much about myself and witnessed a resilient spirit first hand. You become their voice, their mirror for what they want to say and see. So you advocate, you fight. I’ve learned that Brain health is one of single most important issues to focus on! One of the biggest reasons i turned to a plant base lifestyle. Intervening early by taking care of your Physical and cognitive health is 🗝
Confession time: When I go back to wearing contacts after wearing glasses for awhile, I think I look funny. 😂 #fridayfacts
1️⃣ I am not good at small talk.
2️⃣ I do not like handbags with drawstrings.
3️⃣ I have an essential oil diffuser, but refuse to use it because cats are allergic to some essential oils. I don’t want to take the risk.
4️⃣ I like to people watch. It may appear I am staring at people at times, but I am really just daydreaming.
5️⃣ I should own about 10 copies of the movie Girls Just Want to Have Fun. I was obsessed with the movie when I was little.
6️⃣ I was a huge Dawson’s Creek fan in high school. Pacey was my pick from the very beginning.
7️⃣ My husband is a year older than me.
8️⃣ I learned how many days were in a year by saying the Unbirthday song from Alice in Wonderland. “There are 364 unbirthdays!” 😂
9️⃣ I don’t own a watch.
🔟 I still have the card that came with a set of 6 yellow roses that my husband sent me in 1997 when he wanted me to go out on a date with him. It says, “hoping for more than a friendship.”
You know that fruits are one way to keep the doctors away. If you are like me that take fruit consumption for granted, then you'll need to read this to find out how important taking fruit is to you.
Here are some of the fruits (not too common) but are really good for our health.
Bananas might be calorie dense (they contain around 100 calories each), but they are wonderful fruits packed with potassium and healthy starch that can regulate your blood pressure, improve your kidney function, strengthen your metabolism, and give you a lot of stamina during work or play.
And the best part is, they fill us up fast!
Cranberries are sweet-and-sour berries are extremely healthy for women because science has proved that they can prevent urinary tract infections and ovarian cancer. So, make sure you add them to your diet. (Where can I get a cranberry)
this sweet superfruit is rich in antioxidants and iron, and thus, can help menstruating women restock their lost iron stores and improve their blood-haemoglobin concentration.
Muskmelon is a delicious fruit packed with fibre and vitamin A. And you should have it because it naturally exfoliates your skin, gives you a healthy glow, and improves your eyesight.
Grapes especially the red ones, contain a chemical in them called resveratrol, which helps promote the health of your heart, keeps Alzheimer's disease at bay, and can even prevent head and neck cancers.
Furthermore, this superfruit contains a special acid called malic acid that has the ability to keep your teeth white and stain-free.

#GetToKnow Unaweza kutoa pesa kununua kitu ambacho kinakukandia wewe na kumsifia mtu mwingine? Ndivyo alivyofanya Drake.
Drake amewahi kutumia zaidi ya Tsh. Million 13 za kitanzania kununua ‘art piece’ inayomsifia Tupac na kumpondea yeye, inasome ‘Less Drake, More Tupac’
Drake amewahi kufunguka kuwa alikutana nayo kwenye moja ya maonesho ya sanaa, mara ya kwanza alitamani kuivunja lakini baada ya muda alifurahi sana kuiona kwani anaamini jina lake lilitumika kama mfano wa rappers wa jamii ya sasa na anaamini ipo siku itatengenezwa ambayo itawakandania rapper wengine na kumsifia yeye.
“That’s my name up there. I’m representative of this generation,
and this guy loved Pac enough to make this piece, and that’s fucking amazing man. Because you know what? I hope some day someone will make that piece for me,
and it’ll be like, “Less Whatever, More Drake.” Amewahi kufunguka.
Drake ameiweka hiyo ‘art’ kwenye studio yake kama kumbukumbu na motisha ya kufanya kazi zaidi. #FACTSFRIDAY
DID YOU KNOW!
LAKE VICTORIA was named after Queen Victoria by the explorer John Hanning Speke, the first Briton to document it in 1858 while on an expedition with Richard Francis Burton. It’s about 400,000 years old and it receives 80 percent of its water from direct rainfall.
Its the second largest freshwater lake by surface area, split between Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. Some say the source of the White Nile is from the lake which feeds into the rapids near Jinja, Uganda, famed for its white water rafting. The Ssese Islands in Uganda feature plenty of eco-resorts and northern Tanzania has some spectacular national parks that are either wetlands or islands as well.

Did you know?
Andorra has the highest literacy rate in the world.
According to Worldatlas, Andorra which is a part of Southwestern Europe, has a literacy rate of virtually 100%. It's government directs by law that every child between the ages of 6 and 16 is required to submit to compulsory attendance within its school systems. The Andorran government has managed to provide free schooling up to the secondary level of education. This along with a percentage of its GDP being allotted for the education sector, has resulted in very high literacy rates in Andorra.
Finland, Vatican City, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg come in at 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places respectively. Nigeria is at the 177th position with a literacy rate of 51.1 %.
