10 Superfoods Healthier than Kale–

10 Superfoods Healthier Than Kale
(Huffington Post on-line)

In the food world, the biggest celebrity of all might be kale — the Shakira of salads, the Lady Gaga of leafy greens. It’s universally recognized that kale anything–kale chips, kale pesto, kale face cream — instantly imparts a health halo. Even 7-Eleven is making over its image by offering kale cold-pressed juices. And yes, kale has plenty of benefits — including high levels of folate and more calcium, gram for gram, than a cup of milk.

Still, kale’s actually not the healthiest green on the block. In fact, in a recent report published by the Centers for Disease Control that ranked 47 “powerhouse fruits and vegetables,” kale placed only 15th (with 49.07 points out of 100 for nutrient density)! Here’s a roundup of the 10 leafy green cousins that researchers say pack a greater nutritional wallop. Read ’em, eat ’em, and reap the benefits.

FEED-BACK Please

Just set the Administration’s Specials for this week, but interested in how many greens the average household can use in a two week period–

I heard from 4 of 24 members from my first post–so here’s the direct question for the other 20–

How much lettuce do you use in a two week period?

Should I have Kale and Swiss chard for sale as Extra’s each time?

Lindsay and Jonathon Link

Last night our oldest daughter Lindsay and her very best friend and music partner signed their marriage license!  It was a beautiful and intimate ceremony in the Link’s home.  Maura, Jonathon’s mother,  brought out the china and good silver, The Farmer made homemade tortillas and The Farmer’s Wife chopped up all the additions for a traditional Craft-style Tortilla Dinner.

A good time was had by all!  We are so proud of our daughter and welcome Mr. Link right into our family, as his family has us–

Just wanted to share!   The Farmer’s Wife

Kumquats & Watermelon Radishes

It is often hard to ‘try something new’ — especially with food!  Food hits on so many of our senses–look, taste, smell, feel…and if one of those hits is too ‘out there’ we just say NO!  But, variety is the spice of life–so, here are two adventures for this week!

KUMQUATS–

Unlike citruses, the entire fruit is edible. The peel is where the true citrus sweetness lies in both aroma and flavor. The flesh offers a bold and juicy tart contrast, making for a sweet tart mouthful. Seeds are a source of natural pectin.

WATERMELON RADISHES–

The Watermelon radish AKA Rooseheart and Red Meat, is an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish. Outer flesh is white but the interior has bright circular striations of pink and magenta…watermelon-like!  Its flavor is mild, only slightly peppery with almond-sweet notes. Watermelon radishes can range in size from golf ball to soft ball.  Best in the coolness of fall and winter.

Ode to Grandma Bunnell

Grandma almost made it to 100…years that is…42 days is close enough to be called a centenarian.  My Grandma Mildred Elizabeth Hewitt Bunnell passed in her sleep Sunday morning. She was born in 1915 in Rising City, Nebraska and she and Grandpa Orval–called Doc by all that knew him–moved to Worland in 1941.  It seemed the local veterinarian was headed off to war, and so Doc, recently a graduate of vet school himself, and his young wife with their two daughters, one of them a newborn, settled in their new home in Worland, Wyoming.

What followed was sweet bliss for grandma–she loved being Mrs. Bunnell, helping grandpa in his office, and traveling all over the US and Mexico in their Airstream trailer. She raised two girls and two boys, played Bridge with grandpa and friends, and was active in the Methodist Church, spending many hours at Circle J in the Ten Sleep Canyon.  As long as my mom can remember the Hewitt’s were always Methodists–even in England before they came to the states.

God Rest Grandma–You’re with Grandpa now and he’s been patiently waiting for you to join him for the last decade.  Your brother Harold  sends his greetings from Nebraska–He’ll be celebrating his 93rd year.  We love you!!
