Back in the 60's, believe it or not, we had Health Spas. They were equivalent to today's gyms, with a sauna, swimming pool, steam room and a healthy drink bar.

My father was a personal trainer, part-time in the evening and a welder during the day. He would come home and mix up some "energy health drinks" for me and my mother.

These are some of the drinks he used to make. I love the names of some of these. Each recipe makes 1 drink, so you can double or triple the recipe according to how many people you have.

SPA "FOUNTAIN OF VIGOR"

2 Tablespoons of raw sugar (I use Turbinado. You could use 2 packets of Splenda, also), 2 Tablespoons fresh strawberries, 1 Tablespoon vanilla protein powder, 1 teaspoon wheat germ, 1/2 teaspoon Brewer's yeast, 1 cup skim milk and 1 cup ice. If you don't like to add ice, you can freeze the fruit. (250 calories)

2 Tablespoons of raw sugar, 1 capful Energol (I use wheat germ oil), 1/3 banana, 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup ice. (160 calories)

      Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring wtreris? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

      I was curious if you ever thuhgot of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what you've got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You've got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

      elsewhere,doesn'tDo a search onlnie. I used to see ads here on this site, and for black/white romance but can't remember the name(s) of the site(s). Sorry.They are out there though, and some people also join general' dating sites (match.com, eharmony, etc) and search for people of other skin colors as well. It have to be a specialty site for that. ???

      I love the name "Fountain of Vigor", makes me want to try that one first :) I usually have a protein shake everyday I work out (4-5 times a week), so I'm glad to try something new. Thanks for the info.
