Eat– for Good Health

Try this delicious combination:  1/2 cup black beans, 1/4 cup diced cooked sweet potato or yam, 2 T. low fat cheese, lettuce, thin sliver of red onion, a sliced kiwi, and 1/2 cup mango.  Top with your favorite salsa, mine is peach-mango salsa.  It is worth the effort to cut up a mango around its pit.

Mango trees are evergreens
that will grow to 60 feet tall.

The mango originated in Southeast Asia where it has been grown for over 4,000 years. Over the years mango groves have spread to many parts of the tropical and sub-tropical world, where the climate allows the mango to grow best. Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall. The mango tree will fruit 4 to 6 years after planting. Mango trees require hot, dry periods to set and produce a good crop. Most of the mangos sold in the United States are imported from Mexico, Haiti, the Caribbean and South America. Today there are over 1,000 different varieties of mangos throughout the world.

    Becky– funny you should ask because I tried it over the weekend with a recipe I’d found on the internet, and ugh. It was terrible. So, I asked my neighbor Kendra. Her family has a lavender farm in Oregon. Kendra says use the buds only (not leaves) and dry them first. Then, boil them in enough water to cover 1/8 cup lavender buds. Add gradually to your favorite lemonade recipe.

    Hey, wanted to give you a report on Jake and Max– as you know, they’ve been in foster care for ten years… they are pretty resilient.

    Rob and I try to stay in a positive flow. If homework is challenging, we work through it with them. When they feel frustrated, we break things down so that they get into the habit of persistence. We try something a different way, and if they don’t understand the entire solution, at least they learn what the point of the problem is. That really helps, I think. The goal is to not freeze up with any kind of homework.

    One more week of school, and the boys will be off for the summer. It’s nice they’ve made some friends in the neighborhood.

    Sure is. People of all ages need social interaction. It absolutely enables good self-esteem and feelings of control. We also go to church every Sunday, and they go to Sunday School.
