A. Vitamin B complex, iron pills, protein supplement. You can find those in legumes, they have a lot of proteins. Lentils have vitamin B, brown rice also.

Q. What are good items to replace salt with for cooking? My Dad has highblood pressure and we'd like to start using products that have no salt/sodium to add to cooking for adding taste. Like Mrs. Dash

A. One thing that works GREAT for adding a lot of flavor and not a lot of sodium or calories is mustard. I really like taking chicken breast and lightly covering it with mustard and then topping with a little Parmesan cheese and cooking that all up in the oven till the top is golden.

Q. Has anyone had a minimally invasive partial knee replacement? How did it go and are you pleased? I will be having one in the next few weeks and would just like some input. Thanks...
