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.

It was my morning to sleep in and I woke up to this baking in the oven. It was delicious and I would never have guessed that it was such a healthy recipe. Also, Chad put chopped parsley on top which made it taste really fresh. I give it five stars!

I must admit, I've never heard of celeriac but what a healthy alternative to the Cheddar cheese.

I like the idea of eating smaller portions and selecting what you like but looking at the ingredients before ingesting.

In addition, the older I get, the more driven I am at staying healthy which for me means both good food and exercise.

It has been said before but worth repeating, look for ways to increase your activity each day. This can mean things like parking far from the door of your work or stores where you shop. Use the steps instead of the elevator. Walk fast, don't stroll. If you don't use your muscles, you will lose them. This applies to all ages, but more so as you get older. Do some form of strength training, even small hand weights when you're watching TV will work. Incorporating fun in your exercise is the best, because you get a workout without thinking about it. Figure out something you love to do, then make it a priority to carve out the time to do it. If you need a sitter, ask for one, but just do it.
