“We’ve Got Personality”: 4th of July Celebration

“We’ve Got Personality”: 4th of July Celebration

This is Jade, wishing all my friends from the United States a Happy 4th of July! Preparing for Fireworks with Dogs 1) I have my thunder jacket ready, and my mommy promises to cuddle me if I get too scared. 2) Luckily there is a quieter place in the house perfect for me to stay during those loud fireworks. I am extremely excited to run around with my friends while the parental units grill out. Be Quicker than Your Pet Since my mom is strict, I know I won’t get any of that good smelling food from her, but maybe something will fall on the ground that I can get quickly without anyone noticing. I hear it is supposed to be a whoppin’ 90 degrees Farenheit this holiday, so I plan to stay close to that water bowl.  My parents will have to keep a close eye on it to ensure that I get the water I need.  Refill Water More Often When Hot It goes so much quicker when it is hot out. Even though there is air conditioning, I still look forward to sleeping on that cool tile at night after a long, hot, and active day. I hear that there are cooling pads available that are pretty neat. Maybe one day my parents will get one for me to try out.

Avoiding GMO's Consuming genetically modified organisms is not healthy. By buying locally and fresh, you may be able to avoid genetically engineered foods easier than you would in a grocery store. 3. Avoiding Excessive Sugar Intake You also do not have to worry as much about buying foods with excessive sugars. After watching the movie, Fed Up on Netflix, I was appalled that you will not find a percent daily value of sugar in your nutritional facts. It took some digging of my own to even find the daily requirements for sugar on the internet. The recommended daily sugar intake for women is 6 teaspoons according to the American Heart Association (AHA) which is 24 grams a day.  Many other sources reported that 20 grams of sugar a day is the AHA daily requirement of sugar for women. The AHA daily sugar intake recommendation for men is 9 teaspoons of sugar a day, or 36 grams a day.  In one can of Pepsi there are 25.6  grams of sugar. I found it shocking that even orange juice, apple juice, and Nesquick chocolate milk have more grams of sugar in one drink than is healthy for my heart for one day according to Sugar Delirium Blog. My next trip to the grocery store was pretty...
