Salmon Is Hard To Beat
There’s no end to the number of pills, potions, and faddy diets that claim to have amazing effects on the body. But in reality one of the most efficacious foods with a multitude of health benefits has been right under our noses all the time.  Think of any part of the body and the omega 3 fatty acids in oily fish will improve how it looks, feels or works. For example, just two portions of an oily fish such as salmon will improve the look and feel of your skin and hair, help your brain to work at its optimum level, lubricate your joints, and keep your heart healthy. And that’s just the beginning – oily fish is important for all the family.

Some Advice From Kay Wilson
Here is some information regarding the Recipes Section. The U.S. pint is 16 fluid ounces, and not 20 fl.oz like the British Imperial pint.

1 U.S. cup = 8 fl.oz = 250 ml
1 British cup = 10 fl.oz = 300 ml
The teaspoon and tablespoon measurements are the same.
1 teaspoon = 5 ml
1 tablespoon = 15 ml
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
I'm not sure if Canada uses the Imperial or U.S. pint.
