Place 1 cup wheat bulgur and salt to taste in a bowl.
How are you supposed to know how much salt you want until after it's cooked?

Yeah, I did notice the lack of appreciable MEAT in those recipes...but sometimes it's just about getting the most and best nutrition into our elderly who really don't eat much.

Like me. Right now I am lacking potassium. I am getting serious leg cramps. And I know what that means. I was eating bananas one a day. But I got bananaed out. So I quit. Time to get back to them. Funny thing is I was thinking about that very subject the other day.

Do you like Kiwi fruit, Addie? There's more potassium in a kiwi than a banana.

The seeds irritate my intestinal tract. It will only take a couple of bananas to get back on track. Spike will stop by in the morning with about four of them to get me back on track.
