Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".

  1. Sharon,
    This soup was so delicious at the potluck last Monday evening! It was hearty, tasty, and the broccoli was still bright and crisp, not mushy at all. I'm so glad you posted the receipe. In fact, I was planning on asking you to so I could make it for Frankie. It's just the type of soup he'd go for!
    Thanks So Much,

  2. Souper, Anne! So glad it passed muster and hope it will with Frankie also. I just adjusted the recipe - added soy sauce. It tasted better to me last week when I added a little soy sauce to it. Enjoy,



Your ideas and input are valuable to me. I would love to hear from you!
