Old habits die hard!

It's Sunday morning and I like to treat myself to bacon,eggs and pancakes liberally sprinkled with my real salt from a mine in Utah. See all those little iron specks. It's gotta be good for me! Went for my physical this week and Doc violated me. I told him we need to be going steady for him to do that to me. He gave me a Gold Star since my weight is down but blood pressure is high. Cut down on salt even the great Utah stuff were his orders. So this morning I got out my Ronnie the Rat pig plate and ate my rabbit food. Damn Sunday is $5 wings and pints at Beasley's Pub down the road from me. Damn, I gotta pass on that too! Is this being healthy all it's cracked up to be?

Live longer in misery!

It just takes a while to get used to. :)

Tony, not everybody is "salt sensitive." And even if you are, it might simply mean that you need to get more potassium (spinach, broccoli, bananas,and most types of beans.) Experiment!
