That sounds worth trying... Maybe will try that combination (PB and onions) on the pizza, if I get around to thinking of something that will work with that, haha.

Ooooh, that sounds nummy.
Next time I've got some vegan mint ice cream handy, gonna try that.
And it's not weird to me that you'd find cheese and PB good together. Many vegan cheeze sauces contain tahini or nut butters. So rich and fatty.

Oooh. Been meaning to try making some kind of a curry with bananas
sometime. That's not my own idea, though, I've seen it done on a cooking show and saw it in an Indian recipe book I had out from the library.

My blood pressure's also always been on the low end of normal, or a bit below sometimes, and I used to take that as a license to eat as much salt as I wanted (and I used to eat A LOT, before I moved out on my own). It's a mistake to do that, though, as a high salt intake causes your body to lose calcium. Salt (as well as sugar and animal protein) makes your blood acidic, and to get it back to normal, your body takes calcium from your bones to make your blood more alkaline again. It's not as problematic if you consume lots of calcium (eat a variety of greens, beans, lentils, soy products, almonds and almond butter), but many people don't. Pair a low calcium intake with a high salt, sugar, and/or animal product-heavy diet and that's a recipe for future disaster for your bones.
