COMMON VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES
As we embark on the journey each day to eat and live better, take note of
the common vitamin nutrient deficiencies that are easily treated:
1. Calcium: Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones and
controlling muscle and nerve function. Signs of severely low calcium
include fatigue, muscle cramps, abnormal heart rhythms and a poor
appetite. Make sure you’re getting enough with at least three servings of
milk or yogurt a day. Other good sources of calcium are cheese, calciumfortified
orange juice and dark, leafy greens.
2. Vitamin D: This vitamin is also critical for bone health. Symptoms
of a vitamin D deficiency can be vague - fatigue and muscle aches or
weakness. If it goes on long term, a vitamin D deficiency can lead to
softening of the bones. To get enough vitamin D, have three servings
of fortified milk or yogurt daily eating fatty fish, such as salmon or tuna,
twice a week; and spend some time outside in the sunshine every day.
3. Potassium: Potassium helps the kidneys, heart and other organs
work properly. You could become low in potassium in the short term
because of diarrhea or vomiting, excessive sweating or antibiotics or
because of chronic conditions such as eating disorders and kidney
disease, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Symptoms of
a deficiency include weight loss, muscle weakness, constipation and in
severe cases, an abnormal heart rhythm. For natural potassium sources,
consume bananas, whole grains, milk, vegetables, beans and peas.
4. Iron: Iron helps your body make red blood cells. When iron levels get
too low, your body can’t effectively carry oxygen. The resulting anemia
can cause fatigue. You might also notice pale skin and dull, thin, sparse
hair. To boost iron levels, eat iron-fortified cereal, beef, oysters, beans
(especially white beans, chickpeas and kidney beans), lentils and spinach.
5. Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 aids the production of DNA and helps make
neurotransmitters in the brain. With an increasing number of vegans
and people who’ve had weight loss surgery, vitamin B12 deficiency is
becoming more common. Symptoms of severe B12 deficiency include
numbness in the legs, hands or feet; problems with walking and balance;
anemia; fatigue; weakness; a swollen, inflamed tongue; memory loss;
paranoia; and hallucinations. You can get vitamin B12 from animal
sources: eat more fish, chicken, milk and yogurt. If you’re vegan, opt for
vegan foods fortified with B12, such as non-dairy milk, meat substitutes
and breakfast cereals.
6. Folate: Folate or folic acid, is a particularly important vitamin for
women of childbearing age, which is why prenatal vitamins contain such
a hefty dose. A folate deficiency can cause a decrease in the total number
of cells and large red blood cells as well as neural tube defects in an
unborn child. Symptoms of a folate deficiency include fatigue, gray hair,
mouth ulcers, poor growth and a swollen tongue. To get folate from food,
go for fortified cereals, beans, lentils, leafy greens and oranges.
7. Magnesium: Magnesium helps support bone health and assists in
energy production. Magnesium deficiency can cause loss of appetite,
nausea and vomiting, fatigue and weakness. In more severe cases, it can
lead to numbness, muscle cramps, seizures, abnormal heart rhythms,
personality changes or low potassium or calcium levels. To help your
levels return to normal, eat more magnesium-rich foods, such as almonds,
cashews, peanuts, spinach, black beans and edamame.

EASY WAYS TO EAT MORE FRUITS & VEGGIES
The new food plate unveiled by the Department of Agriculture sends a
clear message: eat more fruits and vegetables. Here are easy ways to get
more of these important foods into your diet:
Start early: Get in the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables
a day by eating them early with your morning meal. Add a banana to
your cereal, berries to your yogurt, veggies to your omelet.
Make them visible: Set out a fruit bowl in the kitchen or have carrot
sticks available for snacking. Take some time to prepare the fruits or
vegetables, so they are ready to eat.
Frozen is good: Frozen vegetables, such as peas and carrots, are a great
way to make sure you always have vegetables in the house.
At mealtime, think of the veggies first, not the protein: Half of your
plate needs to be filled with fruits and vegetables. Base your meals on
what vegetables you’ll have and then think of the grains and protein to
go with it.
Have fruit with your sweets: Fruits are nature’s natural candy. Puree
berries and adding them as a sauce to desserts, such as ice cream.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Martin Luther King, Jr., an American clergyman and Nobel Prize
winner was one of the principal leaders of the American civil rights
movement and a prominent advocate of nonviolent protest. King’s
challenges to segregation and racial discrimination in the 1950s and
1960s helped convince many white Americans to support the cause
of civil rights in the United States. After his assassination in 1968, King
became a symbol of protest in the struggle for racial justice. In 1957,
King helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
(SCLC), an organization of black churches and ministers that aimed
to challenge racial segregation. As SCLC’s president, King became
the organization’s dominate personality and its primary intellectual
influence. He was responsible for much of the organization’s
fundraising, which he frequently conducted in conjunction with
preaching engagements in Northern churches. SCLC sought to
complement the NAACP’s legal efforts to dismantle segregation
through the courts, with King and other SCLC leaders encouraging
the use of nonviolent direct action to protest discrimination. These
activities included marches, demonstrations and boycotts.
“I Have a Dream” - King and other black leaders organized the 1963
March on Washington, a massive protest in Washington, D.C. for
jobs and civil rights. On August 28, 1963, King delivered the keynote
address to an audience of more than 200,000 civil rights supporters.
His “I Have a Dream” speech expressed the hopes of the civil rights
movement in oratory as moving as any in American history. After
his death, King came to represent black courage and achievement,
high moral leadership and the ability of Americans to address and
overcome racial divisions. Perhaps the most important memorial
is the national holiday in King’s honor, designated by the Congress
of the United States in 1983 and observed on the third Monday in
January, a day that falls on or near King’s birthday of January 15 th .

To love yourself means to respect and appreciate yourself as you are and to come to
terms with those aspects of yourself that you can’t change - the aspects that make
you unique. It means allowing yourself to drop the conditions that you have created
to love yourself like, “I will love myself once I…” and simply choose to embrace the
good and the bad, the mistakes and the triumphs.
Loving yourself isn’t a one-time thing, but an endless, ongoing process that starts
with realizing that it’s not about discovering self-love; it’s about tearing down the
walls you’ve built against it. Below are 6 ways to learn to love yourself more:
1. Focus on the things you like about yourself
2. Make time to do the things you enjoy
3. Let go of mistakes and embrace the past
4. Appreciate your life
5. Get out of your comfort zone
6. Take care of your body!

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 (16 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
4 ounces pepperoni sausage, sliced (or other toppings if preferred)
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch
baking dish. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti
and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse with cold water.
Combine egg, milk, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, salt and garlic salt in a
large bowl. Stir in cooked spaghetti; mix well. Spread mixture into prepared
baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and
reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Spread sauce over spaghetti. Sprinkle with oregano, basil and the remaining
1 1/2 cups mozzarella. Top with pepperoni, return to oven and bake until
cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown, about 30 minutes more. Let stand
5 minutes before cutting.

Gardening Tips For January
• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water
than from lack of food.
• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.
• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.
• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and
old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into
heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate
and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before
• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete
fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six
inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal.
• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze
damage to crown.
• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off
leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce
water for poinsettias.
• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.
• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as
flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature
will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed
manufacturer’s directions before spraying.
• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings
of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semishaded
• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape.
Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs
before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape
myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting
unwanted canes out at base of plant.
• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the
spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds,
keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new
beds for roses.
• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody
plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be
expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural
needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid
crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet
soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.
• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about
50% humus, including rotted manure.
• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender
plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature
rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but
remove when weather warms.
