For the first time, I enjoyed succotash. A lot. Used to hate it. But this isn't what I hated. This is sweet, earthy, crisp, mellow, light, fragrant. No mush, no grit. Fresh corn and lima beans, sauced with fresh tomato juice and basil. And a lot of potassium.
Nuts, mushrooms and seeds, too. What do all these foods have in common? Uncommonly high levels of potassium. What's that got to do with blood pressure? A lot. If you thought that hypertension was only all about salt (sodium) consumption, think again.
Stripped down. No equipment. No exercise balls, no balance boards, no weights. Not just Better and Cheaper. Better and Free. A recipe to strengthen your biceps. Press Play.
I know it looks a little weird like this. But I'll take it. I think you should, too. Go take a walk. Don't worry about the weather. Happy Slower Sunday.
