update on sil

Thursday, July 05, 2012

the new cancer treatment isn't working. cancer markers are up above 2000. when we started this journey it was below 100.

update: saw sil today, she's pretty frustrated. i don't know how many types of treatments she's gone through, but you'd think one would work.

thanks for all your prayers and kind thoughts.

    My DH's book comes out in mid-July, and he talks about some of this (I think - unless the editor took it out). Interesting stuff! Thanks for the links.

MEDIEVAL EATING

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Middle ages food and diet

Did the people of the Middle Ages eat food which constituted a good balanced diet? No! And especially not for the rich! The wealthy nobles ate few fresh vegetables and little fresh fruit - unprepared food of this variety was viewed with some suspicion. Fruit was only usually served in pies or was preserved in honey. Vegetables and fresh fruit were eaten by the poor - vegetables would have been included in some form of stew, soup or pottage. Vegetables which came from the ground were only are considered fit to feed the poor. Only vegetables such as rape, onions, garlic and leeks graced a Noble's table of the Medieval era. Dairy products were also deemed as inferior foods and therefore only usually eaten by the poor. Little was known about nutrition and the Medieval diet of the rich Nobles lacked Vitamin C and fibre. This led to an assortment of health problems including bad teeth, skin diseases, scurvy and rickets.

The staple diet of the lower classes included:
Rye or barley bread bread
Pottage ( a type of stew)
Dairy products such as milk and cheese products
Meat such as beef, pork or lamb
Fish - if they had access to freshwater rivers or the sea
Home grown vegetables and herbs
Fruit from local trees or bushes
Nuts
Honey

    Are you a fan of the Middle Ages? Not a good time to have lived, in general.
