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.


To Keep Your Brain Young, Eat Your Veggies! – 30 September 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Eating vegetables keeps the brain young, a chorus of research shows. One recent 6-year study in Chicago tested 2,000 seniors, their mental acumen paired off with vegetable intake. Subjects who ate more than two servings of vegetables per day appeared about five years younger by certain indicators than those who ate few or no vegetables. Green leafies (spinach, kale, and collards) appeared most beneficial.”
– From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice 

My husband Frank and I had fun buying lots of fresh fruits and vegetables today – cantaloupes, pomegranates, bananas, peaches, apples, pears, romaine lettuce, green cabbage, red cabbage, celery, carrots, corn, broccoli, onions, peppers, butternut squash, zucchini squash, and turnips.

It’s good to know that what we eat not only tastes great, but is also good for us, for the animals who are spared pain and suffering, and for the environment!
