  •  Vitamin K (4+ / 0-)

    found in dark leafy greens will help with bruising.  I know fresh spinach can be expensive but if you could add some to your salads it might help.  It also has lots of iron, as do eggs.  Maybe you could add some boiled egg to your salad?   I hope you've got a multivitamin with iron to take as well.  Bless you, FL SN Mom.  I really appreciate your diaries.  My mother's go to meal with a hambone was navy bean soup and cornbread and it's still comfort food for me and siblings.  My kids don't like beans in anything but Mexican food but love split pea (hambone, carrots, onions, split peas) cooked all day until it all dissolves into something like the French potage a St. Germain and it's comfort food for them.
    And what would we do without peanut butter?

      red leaf lettuce right now. If I can catch spinach on sale I buy it. I have been eating eggs, and I take b-12 (I'm allergic to metal and iron pills just make me sick which is part of the problem).
      Thanks for reading :), I'm glad to be able to contribute even just a bit. The only thing my kids will eat beans in is chilli and pasta fagoili. (I can't spell tonight). Ham and green beans though they'll eat, and we caught green beans on sale as well so that worked out!
