*Happiest of Birthdays to Barrie M., Myrna S. and Fran D'.!!!!

*Bloating got you down? Fear not--coffee, caffeinated drinks, asparagus and celery will help you get rid of excess fluid and sodium. Also, water and foods with a high water content (such as cucumbers) help flush excess sodium from your body, thereby easing that bloating feeling. Try potassium-rich bananas as well.
