More Foods for Health

I've got baby spinach left over from last year coming up in my raised bed garden, and I'm now picking a bunch of leaves every day.  I eat tomatoes, berries, and every food on this list, except for pineapple to which I am allergic.

I prefer seasonal food, and organic.  When I can't get organic I rely on the methods found in my updated e-publication, FOOD SAFETY: CLEANSING OPTIONS

Hope you'll start adding these foods to your food plan too.....

While cranberries are a great way to help prevent urinary tract infections, the amount of cranberries or cranberry juice needed daily can also be obtained in supplement form.
