Is it time for a salutary drink?

Salutary
Pronounced:
<sal-u-tare-e>

Means:
Wholesome; healthful; promoting health
.
My use:
Eating fruits and vegetables are salutary for your health.  They give you energy.

Literary use:
By Virginia Woolf
Thought and theory must precede all salutary action; yet action is nobler in itself than either thought or theory.


Memory trick:
Salut . ary
Salut (reminds of) = Salute ( a cheer )
ary (sounds like) = airy – air ( good for health )
Salute . airy
