Peanut Butter Product Recalls

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

The steady stream of voluntary peanut butter-related product recalls continues unabated, including some foods my readers may have in their cupboards.

For example, Larabar Peanut Butter Cookie bars, Jamfrakas Peanut Butter Blisscrisp snack bars, and Nature’s Path Peanut Butter Optimum Energy Bars.


Whole Foods has also recalled several products, among them those delicious Dancing Stars’ Chunks of Energy Carob/Hawaiian Spirulina. :(

For a complete and searchable list and more details, the FDA has set up a special page devoted to the outbreak: What’s this Salmonella Typhimurium doing in my peanut butter?! (My cheeky title, not theirs.)

Inauguration: A Most Inspiring Lunch

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

There can hardly be a more uplifting and historic event in our lifetimes than the inauguration of Barack Obama as our 44th President of the United States of America.

What a lunch break!   I hope you all got a chance to watch.

Speaking of history, my Dad suggested I check out the HBO miniseries John Adams. I’m about halfway thru it, catching a little each night and weekend. You come away with a whole new appreciation of the risks our forebears took and the very real dangers they faced in seeking our independence.

Well, back to work…

Please share your thoughts on the occasion in the comments.

Belated Happy New Year

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

I’ve been real busy lately between the newsletter, getting Patricia’s book published, and SHOVELING. It’s been worth it though…

Yesterday, I hit send on the New Year’s resolution edition of the newsletter. And, I’m already getting compliments. I also added a bonus Weight Loss Strategies report to the book download, available for free until the end of February. Pat didn’t know about that one.  

A Fight Night Dinner

Just a random comfort food shot from my digital camera. Consider it an ode to the back-breaking snow. It’s been falling non-stop today, and I’ve been out there several times already. Makes for good exercise though, so I don’t mind too much.

Oh, one more thing. I made the list. Well, a list anyway. I’m in the vegetarian section of Alisa Miller’s 100 Best Natural Wellness Blogs. Thanks, Alisa! It’s an honor.

Wake Up To Spice

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

That’s the sage (pun not intended) advice from Dr. Patricia Sant, Ph.D., co-owner of the Yahoo! group vegetarianspice, among several others.

It’s also the title of her new vegan cookbook. She put a lot into this collection and is rightfully a very proud “mama.” :) I mean, seriously, take a look at these mouth-watering dishes!

And, after you’ve had a chance to try some out, maybe you could pop on over to her blog and let her know which was your favorite recipe? I’m sure she’d really appreciate hearing from you all.
