This is the second time that I've read about bone soup this week. It got me thinking about how much healthier we were when DH was in college a few years ago. He had night classes and I had to drive him so every Sunday I'd make chicken soup from scratch and I'd "microwave - cringe" it between classes. I still have the collection of Corning ware soup mugs I hauled across campus.
Thanks for the post. You've reminded me to get back to basics. Soup and beans are on the menu!
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Here's a good article with lots of links to help us all understand the way to eat simple, nutritious, inexpensive traditional foods. As a culture we have moved so far away from even knowing how to purchase and prepare simple, healthy foods that many of us don't even know what real food is. The food manufacturers and marketers and advertisers have done an amazing job of turning the heads of the last few generations towards the cheaply produced, highly refined junk that's making us sick and overweight. So much so that many innocent people have completely lost touch with the food that nature has so expertly provided. Time to take back our food! Time to be healthy again! We are not as inherently sick as the medical/drug industry tries to make us out to be. We just need REAL food! healthimpactnews.com/2012/cooking-wi th -traditional-foods-menu-planner/
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
