A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Diet by Design – 3 August 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

Our food-shopping this week included the following fresh produce from the farm market, our first stop: yellow sweet peppers, red sweet peppers, corn, cabbage, cucumbers, and sweet onions that are huge, mild-flavored, and – in my opinion – put Vidalia onions (which we also like) to shame! Since they were out of romaine lettuce, we had to buy that from the supermarket.

I looked up “sweet pepper” in the excellent book I often use as a reference, Diet by Design by Tyler J. Stanley, and found out that sweet peppers have far more vitamin C than oranges: for example, red sweet peppers have four times the vitamin C of an orange and almost half the carotene of a carrot! Sweet peppers are also a good source of potassium.

Please read our review of Diet by Design by Tyler J. Stanley, a book we highly recommend:
