I awoke to the cell going of this morning. Haylie our middle daughter was letting me know that she was going to stay in town a bit and catch up with an old friend who is visiting and that she would need me to watch our grandson Jayson. I am not admitting it to her, but I never mind the time I have with our little man. The plan was to get out of bed and clean the house and spend time in fellowship. I still have been doing this, I feel like I took a trip the UK this morning, I was researching the category of FOOD on WordPress.com
A few things my readers my not know about me as I love food! When I travel I always research out the best places to try. I live in the State of Nebraska where we are proud of corn-fed beef! However being a survivor of a heart attack I have worked hard to cut back on this and eat more fish and poultry.
I actually love the challenges of trying new foods. I am a cook book fanatic and a Pinterest freak! I adore both the book in my hand and the online beauty of the recipes. I am very interested in how to eat for health. However giving up all goodies is a tough thing too. If you have been reading my blog I set four goals for 2018 in my post 2018 FOUR SET- GO! One of the 4 set goals was to cut refined sugars out of my diet and to get healthier in 2018. 2015-2017 was not good years for us personally. We lost family members and my husband was diagnosed with cancer. SO I thru myself into work!
As well as trying to control life instead of relying on God. My life has not been that of tranquility. But I am not looking back now! Enough! 2018 is all about going forward and seeing positive things happening!
the four goals I set are huge goals. I am not the type of person who sets goals and thinks I have arrived. It is about gaining success in an areas I am focusing. I think 4 areas is enough. What makes me happy is writing this blog. I am a twin and I must say y sister is the bomb. Cindy is a brilliant woman who is truly my rock! I can always rely on her to tell me just what she thinks! No holding back! Another bit about me. I am short! 64 inches tall is not tall! So being fat does not look good at a short woman! Another reason to go to the gym. Another reason to walk a lot in my job. Another reason to eat fish!
As I write this blog the smell of last nights cabbage burgers are still in the air. These are a treat for my family. Home made bread filled with cabbage, onions and good Nebraska corn-fed beef burger blended together to make pockets of pure yum! I am that woman who can taste something and without a recipe recreate it. I love to adapt my favorite cakes into granola’s that we then sell thru our granola company.
Today I am working on German Chocolate Cake Granola. the goal is to make it taste great with no refined sugars. We use a lot of coconut sugars and natural stevia in our blends I do not like fake sugars. We use real honey and maple as well along with natural sweetness of fruit. I will post later how this one turns out.
Best selling right now is our Carrot Cake granola. We ship a ton of this!
Well enough for now! I will be posting later on the success of this new granola.
