Energy is an Eternal Delight!

19 Jul

Energy is a very special commodity. Without it we can do nothing. Sometimes we need a little boost to keep us going. Vitamin B12 can be our answer.

B12 in a nutshell, creates red blood cells and keeps our nervous system healthy. It is needed to absorb folic acid and helps us to release energy. B12 can be taken in a pill form, liquid form, or you can get it from your choice of foods. B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Some breakfast cereals are fortified with B12.

This is great to know because too often I find myself running low on energy especially when it comes to having a busy schedule.

Here are some foods that are rich in B12…

Fish and Shellfish with (cooked) Clams being at the top of the list


Beef Liver




Cheese overall, But Swiss Cheese in particular



Mmm take a bite out of that!

Clams Casino

Have you ever dreamt about something, and then woke up craving it?  Well last night I had a dream about clams. I woke up thinking, “maybe I should write about clams today, or at least share an awesome clam recipe.”  I once saw Giada De Laurentiis make clams Casino and made my mouth water.  I believe that this will be great for any upcoming holiday parties. This recipe is packed with flavor and the colors are very festive. Let’s step into Giada’s classroom…
