I say tomato. Tomato is a superstar in the fruit and veggie pantheon. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful cancer fighter. They’re also rich in vitamin C. The good news is that cooked tomatoes are also nutritious, so use them in pasta, soups and casseroles, as well as in salads. The British Thoracic Society says that tomatoes and apples can reduce your risk of asthma and chronic lung diseases. Both contain the antioxidant quercetin. To enjoy the benefits, eat five apples a week or a tomato every other day.
Of course, not everyone is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine right now, so in the meantime, Krispy Kreme is running other specials that all customers can participate in:
- Every Monday from March 29 to May 24, guests can start their week with a free medium coffee and glazed donut, no purchase necessary.
- On Saturdays and Sundays from March 27 to May 23, guests who purchase a dozen donuts can get a second dozen of glazed donuts for just $1. One of the donuts will come with a special smiley face to add some cheer.
In the coming weeks, Krispy Kreme will also be delivering free donuts to vaccination centers around the country as an act of gratitude to health care workers and volunteers who are working hard to keep people safe. Plus, all Krispy Kreme employees are getting four hours of paid time off to get their vaccinations.
Don't Drink Sugar Calories. Sugary drinks are the most fattening things you can put into your body. This is because liquid sugar calories don't get registered by the brain in the same way as calories from solid foods. For this reason, when you drink soda, you end up eating more total calories. Sugary drinks are strongly associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and all sorts of health problems. Keep in mind that fruit juices are almost as bad as soda in this regard. They contain just as much sugar, and the small amounts of antioxidants do NOT negate the harmful effects of the sugar.
Hopefully, you already had plans to receive the vaccine, but if not, a daily free donut might be the push you need.
