My Mountain ~ Dr. Joe & TBT ~ Magnesium Benefits ~ 10 Foods Never To Eat ~ De-Hydrated Foods ~ Spaghetti Veggie Cheese Salmon Spinach One Pot


Good  52º clear sunny morning.

Every day I look at this mountain and I've just always referred to it "my mountain", but called PJ's Dave yesterday and asked him the name of it. He said it was Fielder Mountain. I looked it up. It's 3765' and in Jackson Co with drain basins the Rogue River and Pacific Ocean. It's highest neighbor is to the northwest and is in Josephine Co, Old Baldy at 4002'.
 

Yesterday by 2:00 it was 88º and only 9% humidity but I closed the house up early and had only one ceiling fan on and it was so cool inside I had to put on a sweatshirt! Then  by 3 it was 92º and I turned on the AC!
 
 
Today is Throw Back Thursday... today is also my nephew Dr. Joe's birthday. OMG, Joe, you're closing in on 60! LOL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Joe and the family dog, Prince, a Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog) .... a good one for Throw Back Thursday.. about 1959:

Joe Jr. is an Emergency Specialist. With a tall dad, Joe was 6'6", tall mom, Betty is 5'11", and two 6' sisters ... Nancy and MaryAnn, Joe Jr was bound to be tall. He topped at 6'7". How they wanted him to play basketball at UCLA, but he had his sights set on being a doctor!
 
And today would have been my sister Marion and her husband Bill's 61st wedding anniversary. Don't know much about my bro-in-law anymore. He's somewhere in Az, I think. Don't care. He treated my sis horrible for so long!
 
After reading and researching the benefits of magnesium Dr. Axe sent me this. I get his emails generally once a week. I have been taking magnesium regularly ever since. It curtails so many things that go wrong..i.e.; constipation, energy, blood pressure, blood sugar, fatigue, osteoporosis, tension & headaches, hormone imbalance and PMS... 
 
Magnesium-rich foods are essential for cellular health and over 300 biochemical functions in the body. Unfortunately, around 80 percent of American's may have a magnesium deficiency, and the majority of them don't even know it...
Dr. Axe has some good info:
 
Dr. Axe also said the following:

My order from Harmony House arrived.

I got diced carrots, celery, mushroom slices, zucchini, a limited time offer for chopped asparagus, a hearty vegetable blend with long grain white rice, lentils, elbow macaroni, carrot dices, celery dices, chopped onion.
This will make a fine soup by itself or with added ingredients.
I received two free samples: bacon and diced sweet potatoes. All of this has a 20 year shelf life.
 
Yesterday I got a head start on fresh spinach day. First I cooked some mini-spaghetti and re-hydrated some chopped asparagus.

Then mixed up some veggies and broccoli slaw.

Added olive oil to a pan, added in sliced mushrooms and sauteéd them a bit and added in the veggies, including the asparagus. A little Lawry's Garlic Salt and a little water and steamed/sauteéd a while.

I had some soft light blue cheese....
So I added in the cooked drained mini spaghetti and the cheese...
Let it heat well and the cheese melt, stirring good. Then I added in two cans of drained salmon, stirring well.

 Then stirred in the fresh spinach. Taaaa daaaa....
REALLY GOOD!!! (Guess what's for breakfast too!)
 
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

Fresh Spinach Day

Fresh Spinach  Day is our opportunity to put healthier food into our diets.
 
Popeye the Sailor is right. Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It tastes good, and there are many recipes. Many people turn up their nose to it, without even trying it.
 
The reason for eating fresh spinach, is the nutritional value is highest, when it is fresh and uncooked.
 
Celebrate this day by introducing some fresh spinach to your meals today. You could start by mixing in some spinach into your garden salad. Your family may not even notice, but by doing so, you are making them healthier!
 
Gardeners know that spinach is easy to grow. And, it's hardy. You can plant it as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Why, that's today in many parts of the country! More on Growing Spinach.
 
There is another day that we celebrate this healthy vegetable. It's National Spinach Day, celebrated on March 26th. We think it is great that there are two days to celebrate this wonderful vegetable, and to encourage people to eat healthier.
 

Did You Know? V-8 Vegetable Juice is not just tomato juice. It includes 8 vegetables. One of them is Spinach
