Bone broth seems to be the latest "healthy food". I have a bagful of beef bones in my freezer, so I made up a large pot of vegetable soup the other night (slow cooker). I'd prefer pizza, but.....

Just finished Wheat Belly Total Health, by William Davis, MD. It is for people who either want to lose weight and/or improve their health (and who doesn't).                                                                         We've been told by all the "experts" and commercials that eating "healthy whole grains" is important (and wonderful). Well, Dr. Davis says "NOT TRUE". In fact, it's just the opposite. We weren't meant to eat "grasses". We not only can't digest them properly, they are unhealthy and make us fat. We need to remove grains, especially wheat (but including corn, rye, rice, etc) from our diet. He gives many reasons and benefits for excluding them.

Personally, I don't need to lose weight, but I am convinced I could improve several maladies by cutting back or totally stop eating grains. He mentioned arthritis (including osteo) could be relieved, for example. When I went on my cruise, I ate no bread (Why fill up on bread rather than all the good stuff?). In fact, I virtually ate no wheat or other grain foods. My arthritis disappeared! I wondered why (my sister said "prayer"!). After reading the book, I'm thinking is was exactly what he said. So, as soon as I clear out my pantry of cookies, crackers, pasta, cereal, etc., I'm going to find out. Like sugar, I'm not sure I can live without wheat products, but I'm going to try like hell to find out! You can be sure I'll keep you informed.

Anyway, it's an informative book. And, like The Big Fat Surprise book I read last winter, I'm learning (slowly) that things aren't always what they seem--or, you can't always believe what you're being told. Duh.

If my brother was still alive, I would ask him if I could go mushroom hunting with him, and have him teach me.  Only realized I wanted to do that after he was dead.

Dusted off the "Weber", fired up the charcoal, and cooked myself some chicken on the ol' grill. Tossed on some asparagus spears. Mmmmmm.  As an addendum to my previous comment, I've been to the woods thrice to hunt mushrooms, and found nary a one. Bummer.

MUSHROOM SEASON!!! I was picking up sticks in my yard when a tiny gray morel caught my eye.  Then another, and another! The floodgates opened, and I wound up with 46, about 10 being yellow morels. When I mowed, I discovered several more I had missed. This might be THE season. Yahoo!

Carl checked in with us on friends!! I'm so relieved as I'm certain the rest of you are!
It's such a helpless feeling to be concerned about one of our friends and not to be able to find out if they are okay. Welcome back Joan.

Back to food - breakfast first in an hour or two. I'll fill the blender with fruit, some cocoapowder, linseed and a little fruit juice and there's breakfast. It's the King's day today, the first flags are going up. A good excuse for a lazy day!

I found the hallucinations from opiate painkillers bad enough - I can't understand how people can become addicted to them.

Sometimes a plain warm water enema can take the place of a laxative and it need not be invasive. Just use a hot water bottle hanging up high in the shower and let gravity do the flow. Try that twice and no laxative is needed. Any person trying to strain or force is doing thier body harm.

Comment by Daniel W on April 26, 2015 at 6:18pm
I think whenever opiates are given, a laxative should be considered immediately. It is not always needed, but life threatening constipation happens a lot. Hallucinations snd falls are common. People dont understand how dangerous constipation can be.

I used to make my own yogurt. It's really easy. Maybe I should start again. I have not tried straining it Greek style. It would be less sour then.

Despite my paternal family's pride in all things German - or because of it - I don't care for a lot of German foods. I do love sauerkraut. I should make more of that, too! And when I get some time I still want to create some lentil or garbanzo braunsweiger.
