One Major Effect of Eating a Salad Every Day?

A huge boost in nutrient consumption. 

*Vitamin K: Your best bet for getting a boost of Vitamin K in your next salad is to focus on dark green lettuces, like kale and spinach, and add in other dark green veggies, like broccoli and Brussels sprouts.

*Vitamin C: Bell peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes will give you that boost of antioxidants.

*Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, all common ingredients in salads. Women should aim for at least 25 grams of fiber daily while men should consume 38 grams, minimum.

FYI: Choose a variety of ingredients and include several different colors of fruits and vegetables to broaden your spectrum of vitamin and mineral consumption.

All Nations International Founder Floyd Lee McClung, Jr – global missions leader, bestselling writer, and international speaker – passed recently in Cape Town, South Africa. He was 75.

Floyd had battled a rare bacterial infection since 2016, which left him hospitalized and unable to speak for more than five years.

During 50 years of ministry, Floyd (and his wife Sally) lived in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Floyd worked in every continent except Antarctica and wrote 18 books.

*Their vision for All Nations was “to see Jesus worshipped by all peoples of the earth, reaching the least, the last and the lost.”

President Biden is reportedly laying the groundwork to push more Arab countries to sign peace accords with Israel. The decision is seen as a potential embrace of the Trump administration’s so-called Abraham Accords, which resulted in Israel normalizing ties with four Arab states last year.  https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews

 

Update: The company behind the Keystone XL (crude oil) Pipeline is ‘abandoning the project’.  President Biden revoked a key permit for the pipeline earlier this year. The decision is a major win for environmentalists.

Conservatives say the move will hurt jobs.
