Easy Ways to Incorporate More Folic Acid Into Your Diet

October 14, 2014 12:42 pm

When you think of the necessary vitamins and minerals that you should be getting from the foods that you eat, folic acid likely isn’t one of the first things that come to mind. It is a very important element in everyone’s diet, however, especially women who are pregnant and those who are susceptible to Alzheimer’s disease. Here are some of the best ways to incorporate more folic acid into your diet.

  1. Broccoli. You already know that you should eat your vegetables to get the proper nutrients, but broccoli contains a great deal of folic acid as well. Just half of a cup of broccoli contains 52 micrograms of folic acid, which equals approximately 13% of the average person’s recommended daily value. Steaming broccoli or eating it raw is one of the healthiest ways to consume this veggie, but you can also add it to salads or stir fries for a more flavorful taste.
  2. Sunflower seeds. These tiny, toasted snacks are not only tasty, they’re also a very impressive source of folic acid. Just one ounce of sunflower seeds provide 20% of your recommended daily intake, and they also provide Vitamin E, beneficial fats, and other essential nutrients.

Pizzeria Bianco Rosso: A Camarillo Pizzeria

October 7, 2014 3:48 pm

Camarillo's Pizza Bianco Rosso embodies the art of the pizzaiolo, the ones responsible for crafting the perfect Neapolitan pizza. Just by harnessing the basics of the crust, ingredients, and controlling the oven, Pizza Bianco Rosso meets the strict requirements of the ancient pizzaiolo and their end product is a delicious, carefully crafted pizza.

For their red pizza, definitely sample the Juliet pizza, as the red sauce blends perfectly with the thinly sliced, savory prosciutto and crispy arugula. On the other end of the spectrum, their white pizzas are just as well crafted, which is apparent when you bite into the Corsica slice, which has sweet caramelized onions, a mixture of fresh mushrooms, and garden fresh parsley, rosemary, and thyme.

Visitors find that Pizzeria Bianco Rosso matches the quality of its pizzas with its surroundings, so you’ll always enjoy a slice in a cool, stylish setting.
