During the cold winter months it
is most important that we eat the
right foods so our bodies can fight
cold, virus, etc.
We can not expect our bodies to
function correctly if they do not
receive the right foods - our cars do
not run without oil and gas do
Surveys show that in Hoke
County and North Carolina we do
not get the needed amounts of
milk, fruits and vegetables.
We homemakers are the gate
keepers of the foods our families
get, so let's treat them right.
Help family members get their
needed milk by using milk often in
Using dry lowfat milk will help
you cut on calories.
Hot chocolate, puddings, ice
cream, sauces and gravies are a few
ways to cook with milk.
Try this cheese butter.
Beat 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter with
3/4 teaspoon italian seasoning. 1/8
teaspoon each garlic powder and
black pepper. Blend in 1 cup (4
oz.) shredded cheddar cheese and 1
teaspoon lemon juice. Form into
log shape on waxed paper and
refrigerate until ready to use.
Use fruits you have on hand
such as apples, oranges, bananas,
grapes. Kiwi and fresh pineapple
add to a salad but we do not
always have them on hand. Cut up
your fruit and add a sprinkle of
salt and sugar. Prepare a little
ahead of time for fruits to blend
and you have a pretty and oh so
good salad. Leaving the peeling on
the apple adds color.
1 10-oz. pkg. frown chopped broc
3 large tomatoes
1 /2 cup (2 oz.) process swiss cheese
2 tablespoons chopped onion
Prepare broccoli according to
package directions; drain. Cut
tomatoes into 4 slices each.

place on baking sheet. Combine
broccoli, 2 tablespoons cheese and
onion. Spoon broccoli mixture
atop tomato slices. Broil 4 to 5 in
ches from heat till hot, about 10-12
minutes. Sprinkle with remaining
cheese. Return tomatoes to broiler
until cheese melts, about 1 to 2
minutes. Makes 6 servings.

The Daily Multi-Myth - An
advertisement on television shows
a person explaining how he stays
healthy and looking "great." He
says he watches his diet, gets plenty
of exercise, and, "just to be sure,"
takes a vitamin-mineral suppie
| ment every day.
This is the way we have come to
expect the marketing of dietary
supplements. They are promoted
as an "insurance" policy to
guarantee good health.
The implication of such adver
tising has contributed to the myth
that even a balanced diet cannot
provide adequate nutrients..
Some people have gone further
) and maintain that modern farming
methods have depleted the soil and
that food itself no longer contains
This is untrue.
More is known about the
nutrient content of food today
than ever before, and more is
done, through modern farm prac
tices, to protect and enrich the soil
than was even known about in the
) good old days.
Crop rotation, soil tests, and
routine enrichment of crop soil
were developed because the oft
revered "natural" way of farming
was quantitatively and qualitative
In addition, the protein, car
bohydrate, fat, fiber, and vitamins
are controlled primarily by the
plant's genetic structure, not by
F the soil.
Excess mineral elements in soil
beyond the plant's requirements
may be reflected in the plants, but
these differences are usually small.
Both desirable (magnesium,
zinc, iron, etc.) and undesirable
(lead, cadmium, selenium, etc.)
elements, are similarly ac
A balanced diet which generally
meets the U.S. RDA requirements
f for vitamins A, Bl, B2, C, and D
will nearly always provide the
needed amounts of other vitamins,
despite the claims of some people
that these other vitamins are hard
to And and therefore must be eaten
in special foods or taken by pill.
