We would strongly recommend our readers
to continually have these valuable foods on their tables. It is
possible to obtain them in some form or other during the entire year.
They contain very valuable salts, which are of the greatest use in
preventing disease. These salts are absolutely necessary for life, and
though found in other foods such as meat, are particularly abundant in
these vegetables. If cooked they must be carefully prepared, as the
salts are very soluble in water (see Cooking). Vegetable salads and
fruit salads are to be recommended. Those of gouty or corpulent
tendencies will find these of especial use. By keeping the blood
alkaline they are a preventive of many diseases. Spinach, cabbage,
lettuce, and all the fruits offer a variety from which at each season
one may choose.
It is to be observed that common salt and salt such as bi-carbonate of
soda, do not adequately replace those food salts. Indeed,
over-consumption of common salt is harmful, besides leading to
Fresh fruits and vegetables are always to be preferred to tinned ones.
