Diet by Design – 3 August 2006

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:

"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.
