December, 2016

Good Morning,

This note may come as a surprise. We thought we could stop our monthly notes and new recipes newsletters, but alas, too many wrote that they enjoyed our efforts and now we're back. Since we are entering our twentieth year, I believe it's a good idea. We continue to create new recipes and hope they do help.

Fortunately, we have been able to keep free for visitors and we will continue that policy as well.

We hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving this year and now we look forward to the Christmas season.

Today, we are one-month away from 2017, and I am especially grateful for just being here. January will mark our 20th year online, 20th year as a survivor of a "terminal" diagnosis, and 20th year of helping so many to return to good health and back to work or best, getting on with our lives.

We have noticed more and more products coming to shelves with no-salt-added or simply titled "unsalted." This is always good news. Maybe processors are catching on. We do know that the FDA finally agreed with us and now recommends a daily intake of 500 mg to 1500 mg of sodium per day for those who need to cut back on sodium. That's real progress.

Our feature this month like all previous Christmas seasons is our Christmas Dinner Plan. You can enjoy and you can keep your sodium levels down. Why not give it a try?

We hope you enjoy your holidays this month. Please feel free to write and let us know how you are doing and write if you need any help. And I do hope you enjoy or notes this coming year.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and a Happy New Year to all.
