the ancient mariner
After long and careful research I have discovered why the Irish (my ancestors) live long and healthy lives (and happy ones as well).
—It is the famous Irish diet–a six pack and a potato (or two).
A potato has only 100 calories/45% of daily requirement of vitamin C/twice the potassium of a banana/3 grams of fiber/and NO (ZERO)cholesterol. And it is loaded with antioxidents.
Antioxidents are also plentiful in GUINNESS (and all dark beers).
Now if we consider beer is only food in a glass—-the only way to drink it by the way–tastes better—a few GUINNESS and a potato or two is a great dinner.
Then add a handful of peanuts for dessert and your set—peanuts have those same antitoxidents that fight off heart problems, plus lots of protien and the good old mono-unsaturated fat. SOOOOOO
Here’s to you and yours,
And may the winds be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And may you be in Heaven an hour before the devil knows your gone !!!!
