#AtoZchallenge Vitamin C Day and #ChickenCordonBleuDay


I got lucky with this holiday.

It's Vitamin C day.



Vitamin C was isolated and identified in 1932 on April 4.
Among other benefits, it fights off scurvy.

Vitamin C holiday #atozchallenge


Celebrate today by eating some citrus fruits (orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple), cantaloupe, mango, kiwi, watermelon, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, leafy green veggies (spinach, cabbage), broccoli, cauliflower, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, or tomatoes. Too much light can reduce vitamin C content, so be sure to store your OJ in a container that isn't clear! Citric acid doesn't have vitamin C, but is a natural chemical, so be sure to check your store-bought lemonade for the good vitamin C before assuming it's there.


The Turkey Hill Lemonade has 30% Vitamin C. The Simply Lemonade is "not a significant source" of Vitamin C.

Okay, here's your backup holiday:

April 4 is National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day.


That's chicken stuffed with (or wrapped around) ham and cheese. The chicken is usually breaded.
