I guess I’m convinced that I was the victim of misinformation: turns out coffee at normal levels of consumption is not a diuretic.
In other dietary data: the NYTimes says beets (Beta vulgaris) are the new spinach. BTW, chard is botanically a leafy beet or a small-rooted beet (depending on how you look at it), and they’re both in the amaranth/chenopodium family, which has lots of species people have harvested and cultivated, including quinoa, huazontle, and epazote, all of which I find quite tasty….
Hmm, dinner tonight: soup, but maybe without any type of Amaranthaceae….
