Tradin' in the Cheddar for Celeriac-ac-ac-ac-ac-ac

This morning I made Celeriac Souffle from a recipe out of the book "In Season". It was splendid. It's only a few ingredients; celeriac, eggs, mustard, butter, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.  I highly recommend it. The celeriac is packed with potassium and is beneficial for high blood pressure, due to high levels of phthalides.

In the past week I have been informed that two of my friends have been diagnosed with cancer. The first, in his mid-thirties with one kid and one on the way, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. The other, in her forties, with leukemia. I have had a heightened awareness (and fear) of cancer and its widespread hold on our nation for the past few years, due mainly to the increasing number of friends and acquaintances affected by this disease I have accumulated in my short life. Ironically enough, I am currently reading the book Anti-Cancer. This book is well written and enlightening. I highly recommend it and wish that all of my friends and family would not only read it but also implement some of the fundamental anti-cancer lifestyle changes this book identifies.
