On our way home from Thanksgiving in Phoenix with son Hunter, as we started up the last summit on I-10 before descending into the LA Basin, we snapped this picture from the car….the Cabazon dinosaurs painted for the season.
How many of you have driven through Banning Pass, noticed these creatures to the side of the highway, and wondered about their history?
We’ve stopped at the dinosaurs many times over the years, in earlier years to eat at the Wheel Inn diner whose owner built the dinosaurs as a way to attract business to his restaurant.
Both the Wheel Inn and the dinosaurs share a rich past. The dinosaurs are still there. The beloved 60’s diner was demolished in 2013, a victim of shinier nearby outlet malls and a casino.
Since it’s the holiday season, a time many of us do our annual watch of Chevy Chase’s 1980’s classic Christmas Vacation, it seems fitting to bring up another of the most-watched 80’s movies these days…. Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was one of Tim Burton’s first movies, and a classic.
Man-child Pee-Wee Herman, on his way to the Alamo to retrieve his stolen bike, ate at the Wheel Inn and wound up watching the sunrise in the head of the Tyrannosaurus Rex with a Wheel Inn waitress.
So what does this all have to do with whole food nutrition and microcirculation? Nothing. But it’s December when many of us unfortunately forget the word health. Seemed fitting for us to take a break from our story too.
Energy + Mood
Fruits and veggies improve energy and mood. If you want to feel happier and more energetic tomorrow, eat more fruits and vegetables today. That’s the take-away from an interesting study published in the British Journal of Health Psychology.
“On days when people ate more fruits and vegetables,” Dr. Tamlin Connor noted, “they reported feeling calmer, happier and more energetic than they normally did.”
Does your home stock up on tissues when the temperature and leaves change? Do you feel that a strong immune system is more important than ever? Juice Plus+ is a powerful tool in your toolbelt in helping support a healthy immune system.
Juice Plus+ capsules have been the subject of four different studies on immunity conducted on four different populations: healthcare professionals with direct patient contact, young law school students, an elderly population, and athletic men. The combined results of these studies show that Juice Plus+ capsules support the normal function of the immune system and support upper respiratory health.
