"Is okay. You eat turkey."
Once I got her off the topic of meat, however, she shared with me some of her "folk remedies" (as she calls them) to promote a long and healthy life. Among them was her daily habit of drinking a glass of water mixed with two tablespoons of organic Apple Cider Vinegar and two tablespoons of maple syrup or honey. I bought the ingredients, but haven't tried it yet. While I am not entirely convinced to drink Apple Cider Vinegar, I can't argue with how good she looks at 87. She can climb stairs, balance her checkbook, and remember her long list of remedies (of which this is only one).
I am trying to pay attention. Not only do I want to look and feel that good in the years to come, but I am a firm believer in the wisdom of our elders...even if she wants me to eat meat (*wink*).
