We are the world leader in medical costs per person, but we're far from healthy. We're getting grossly fat (obese is the word they use). Old Egyptian Proverb: "1/4 of what you eat supports you, the other 3/4 supports your doctor."

Ketchup Was a Vegetable
Watched "Forks Over Knives" last night. It, and the book it's based on, has a message I needed to hear--again! "If it had eyes and a mom & dad, don't eat it." Eat fruit, vegetables, whole grain. When I stop eating vegan, that's when my weight and blood pressure begin to creep up. NO dairy. Goodbye, dear butter. Chocolate? Pillsbury's big biscuits in a can? Rye bread? I'm just not gonna think about it. I am going to fill my mind with visions of oranges, apples, grapes, plums (not sugar plums), tomatoes, green vegetables, purple vegetables, squash. Fabulous salads. Ripe, delicious fruits. I'm maybe about a third or even half of the way there now, but I can improve.
