Think Beyond Citrus With These Surprising Sources of Vitamin C

January 29, 2015 6:03 pm

You probably remember your parents telling you to drink orange juice as a child because it provided you with Vitamin C, but do you really understand the benefits of this miracle vitamin? Vitamin C boosts your immune system to prevent you from getting sick, and it provides beneficial antioxidants that keep you looking and feeling your best. Here are a few lesser-known sources of Vitamin C.

  1. Red bell peppers. One small red bell pepper actually provides even more Vitamin C than a cup of orange juice, and it contains only four grams of the carbohydrates that many citrus fruits are high in. In fact, a juicy bell pepper actually provides 203% of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C.
  2. Strawberries. If you want to extend your Vitamin C search to fruits outside of the citrus family, strawberries are a great option. One cup contains 97.6 milligrams of Vitamin C, which is about 130% of your daily value. Even more conveniently, the same amount of frozen strawberries offers 105.6 milligrams of beneficial C vitamins.

Taste Why Fogo de Chao Is a Premier Brazilian Steakhouse

January 21, 2015 5:04 pm

Some say Fogo de Chao is the most famous Brazilian steakhouse in the United States. The Denver location opened in 2009 and has been popular ever since.

Your meal starts at the salad bar, which is unlike any salad bar you’ve ever seen. There’s a variety of fresh vegetables, meats, and cheeses that are replaced frequently to keep all ingredients as fresh as possible. You'll be served throughout your visit, and you'll flip a card over at the end to signal that you're done with your meal. Dine on samples of top sirloin, filet mignon, lamb, chicken, or ribeye all well seasoned and slow-cooked over a fire. You won’t get service like this anywhere else. The staff is professional, attentive, and friendly, refilling glasses when they’re half full and answering any questions you have.

Valet parking is available in addition to nearby street and garage parking.

Fogo de Chao
1513 Wynkoop Street
Denver, CO 80202

Nutrition Tips for Vegetarians

January 14, 2015 5:03 pm

Whether you want to show support for animals or simply choose to avoid meat products, becoming a vegetarian can be a very healthy lifestyle choice. Though it decreases your risk for many long-term diseases, a vegetarian diet can make it difficult to get the protein and other nutrients a person needs to stay healthy and energized.

These vegetarian eating tips can help you create a balanced, meat-free diet:

  • Make sure that you get enough protein by incorporating nuts, beans, peas and soy products into meals and snacks.
  • Keep up with your necessary iron intake to create healthy oxygen absorption in the blood by eating a lot of spinach, kidney beans, lentils, black-eyed peas and iron-fortified cereals.
  • Choose calcium-fortified soy milk to replace the calcium normally found in regular cow’s milk.
  • Consider vegetarian alternatives to traditionally meat-based foods to keep your diet exciting (for example, bean burritos, veggie lo mein, or vegetarian lasagna).
