“I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham … March 19, 2009

I do not like them Sam I Am!”

But, carob, now that’s another story!  I found this wonderful carob bark recipe and I have really been enjoying it.  Though it doesn’t quite taste like chocolate, it is enough of a sweet that it deters me from endulging.  Carob only has 3.5g of fat and 70 calories per serving which makes it better on the hips than it’s chocolate counterpart.  “You do not like them.  So you say.  Try them!  Try them! And you may.” (Quotes taken from Dr. Suess’ Green Eggs and Ham, one of my families favorite stories and the first book my son read all the way through:)

1 bag (10 oz) Vegan Carob Chips (I use Vegan because they are not made with milk products)

2 heaping spoons full all natural peanut butter

1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped raw almonds (raw is better because it is still a living food.)

Melt chips over low heat.  Add peanut butter and almonds.  Stir.  Pour onto parchment paper covered cookie sheet and put in refrigerator to harden.  Break into small pieces and enjoy!

Make sure you refrigerate any leftovers because the carob will soften at room temperature.

Please try this recipe and post your comments here.  You can also find carob covered almonds and raisins at your local health food store.  They’re yummy!


Wash Your Hands! February 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kristy Werner @ 11:05 am

Mom always made you wash your hands before eating and you had to do it even though you didn’t want to.  Here’s a link that will make you want to.


If you touch your face and mouth with unclean hands, you are putting germs and other creepy things on and in you from everyone and everything you have come into contact with since the last time you washed your hands.  Think of the places you’ve been and the people you’ve seen.  Think of the places they’ve been and the people they’ve seen!

When I was in college getting my BS in Zoology, we did a little experiment in my biology lab.  A bacteria was sprayed on one person’s hand.  He first swabbed his hand and put it in a pitre dish.  Then he shook hands with the person standing next to him.  She did the same and so on for about 10 people.  The scary part is that  the tenth person’s pitre dish still grew a lot of bacteria.  I wonder how many people it would go through before it was no longer present.  I imagine quite a few.

Before you eat, after you visit the restroom and after you’ve been out with the public, please remember to wash your hands.  This will keep you and your family healthier and help prevent you from having to endure what this lady in the video underwent.

So watch the video and then go wash your hands!


To Microzap or Not To Microzap That Is The Question. February 20, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kristy Werner @ 9:13 am

I could write a huge long post about why not to use a microwave oven to cook your food. But the following website seems to sum it up pretty good. So I won’t reinvent the wheel.

My family and I have opted NOT to use the microwave.  I think we get enough radiation elsewhere.  Can I still get dinner on the table in a timely manner?  Yes, I can put leftovers in the oven and have them ready by the time I get the table set and everyone to their seats anyway.  I haven’t missed my irradiation machine at all.

Take a look at this link and then let me know if you too decide not to microzap.
