TY for the celery info--planning to make a batch of mirepoix (French-style mix of onion, celery, and carrots) which I make heavy on the celery anyway. Freezes great; really adds to soups and sauces. Let my mini chopper do the work.

Peace out,
Mary S.

HOW ABOUT CELERY?
check this out..........MEDICAL MEDIUM .Celery is a strongly alkaline food that helps to counteract acidosis, purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, prevent migraines, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems. Celery contains compounds called coumarins which are known to enhance the activity of certain white blood cells and support the vascular system. Celery’s rich organic sodium content has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and holds them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from the kidneys. Celery is a well known natural diuretic and has ample ability to flush toxins out of the body. Celery also has significant anti-inflammatory properties making it an essential food for those who suffer from auto-immune illnesses. It also contains significant amounts of calcium and silicon which can aid in the repair of damaged ligaments and bones. Celery is rich in vitamin A, magnesium, and iron which all help to nourish the blood and aid those suffering from rheumatism, high blood pressure, arthritis, and anemia. Fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful and healing juices one can drink. Just 16 oz of fresh celery juice a day can transform your health and digestion in as little as one week.

On the chickpeas... I like that they can be fixed in a relative short amount of time.. and I too have chickpeas in the pantry most of the time.

The chick-pea recipe is a terrific one.
I have previously tried making this but unfortunately ended up overcooking them.

Will try again at some stage as I always keep a couple of cans of chickpeas in the pantry.

Another high protein snack we keep at home is just a simple mix of a large bag of salted peanuts mixed with a small bag of dried wasabi peas.

we just put out an occasional bowlful to snack on.

Also, if you have favorite meals, try to supplement them by including extra veges.
The extra quantity you can create by making double or triple recipe batches means you can have easy frozen meals down the track & since it will be a favorite, then it can also be a healthy alternative to buying fast food.

a long time ago i never like veggies . Something to hide under the mashed potatoes . I have for a few years now changed my ideas of eating and enjoying them . I buy a different vegetables and fix it . if my family likes it then it becomes a regular table veggie . if not i buy it again and try to fix another way . i might not have fixed it right for our taste . so after about ten or so try`s if it stills in on the i would rather not eat this veggies . then we no longer purchase said veggies . we have tried many veggies found out we love more then we every thought we could . eat it raw or cooked . try it you might like it . No really vegetable lovers are made not born . and its so good for you .
