    Herbs and Spices, a little more from DMW

    Hello !

    How is everyone doing here ?

    I decided to peek into nutrients in herbs and spices, and it turns out they are anti-oxidant powerhouses. A 3 ounce jar of Oregano has the anti-oxidants of nearly 90 pomegranates.

    So now in addition to cinnamon and blueberries in my oatmeal, I add parsely flakes. On my breakfast eggwhites and lunch salad, I add the same parsely and or oregano, and cook with more herbs and spices, too. Well, working on the spices. The herbs are easy to add.

    So find a nice blend and add to your green glop, or vary from day to day.

    My SUUNTO heart rate monitor lost connection with a damaged chest belt. SUUNTO surprised me and gave me a free replacement, monitor and chest belt, even though it was out of warranty. I had been thinking of buying a new one, almost $300. They've replaced it twice now at no cost.

    I hope everyone is doing well ! I had a CT Scan yesterday. I suppose my new cardiologist wants a bit of current view on my heart.

    We have a small patch of chives growing outside of our deck & they're coming up with the warm weather. Been adding them to many of my warm dishes like rice/veggies & soup, just before serving. They're mild enough that I can just taste them & they add a nice subtle flavor to the food.

    Let us know how the CT results are. Joe.
