Zucchini, swiss chard, potatoes, and red and yellow beets to name a few.
I love yellow beets and not just for their sunny colour
they taste delicious.
We use the beet greens too.
No waste here,
just rinse well and gently steam them in a little water
until slightly wilted.
Vitamin packed with goodness,
and one of Mr. HB's favourites.
I've been reading about inflammation in the body.
The kind that causes aches and pains.
If the body is too acidic it is inflammatory and can cause all manner of troubles...
Apparently some problems can arise that are much more serious than just an occasional ache or twinge.
Reducing the consumption of meat, grains and dairy helps rectify this situation.
Greens and veggies are touted to be the body's best friend.

Town and Country published an article in the September 2011 issue.
Amy B. Thomas discusses going alkaline
and she mentions a book by Robert O. Young
"The PH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health"
I am not prepared to give up all meat, grains and dairy.
My thoughts are to have a wide variety of all the food groups.
As Mother and Father used to say...
"everything in moderation"
Avocados are very alkalizing...
Here is an alkalizing tasty salad recipe...
(thank you BFF!)
If you have a mandoline slicer
you might like to use it for the zucchini
you'll save some time.
Fresh goodness in a bowl
which accompanied a BBQ Sockeye Salmon dinner.
I served the Whitewater Cooks recipe for Arugula Salad
Vegetable Rotini Pasta Salad
Stuffed Devilled Eggs
with artisan bread
Cantaloupe melon slices with
"homemade chocolate cookies."
(Thank you to lovely DIL!)
Whitewater Cooks Arugula Salad
Hope that you enjoy this interesting salad
it has a peppery flavor from the arugula
and the sweet dressing is complimented
by the Manchego cheese and toasted hazelnuts.
It really works well together.
Dishes are loaded in the dishwasher
all is quiet
even Pepper has gone to bed.
I'll be turning in very soon myself
It's been a busy day.
I love having the family come by for visits
the house feels more like a home when my kids come by
the sounds of young voices
The lovely Miss Isla's visit was a highlight!
I have to admit I am totally under her spell.
I could sit and watch her every movement for hours
she is perfection.
The Westminster clock has chimed 10 bells
so I am off to slumber.
Sweet dreams to all.
