Snacks to enjoy in between meals

RICHMOND —

Six small meals a day keeps ones blood sugar level in good status, and I have found this to be true.

Usually about 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. my blood sugar goes down and a quick snack picks me up for the rest of the day.

I make my own snacks. Here is one that is so easy and loaded with fiber and protein.

Oats and all that jazz

INDGREDIENTS:

2 cups of old fashion oats

1/2 cup of nuts

1/2 cup of dried fruits (I love the dried cranberries.)

1/2 cup shredded dried coconut (Uou can find this at your local health food store.)

1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds.

DIRECTIONS:

Roast old-fashioned oats in a skillet. (Use no oil). Stir constantly till oats start to turn brown. Cool down about 10 minutes. Stir constantly. Then add all the other ingredients.

I store mine in an air tight container. Enjoy.

Speaking of low blood sugar and remedies, I once was on the road working and contacted one of the worse colds and headaches I have ever had.

One day I was in the central office working, and one of the staff members told me that they had the cure for all my aches and pains.

She gave me a small bottle that looked like water. She told me to be near my bed and chuck it down really fast.

Well, I was in so much misery, I would probably have eaten mud just to get better.

That evening I did as she instructed, and – pow – I hit the bed like a bullet shot from a gun.

It really did cure everything I had wrong with me – for months.

I think they called my experience “hit by white lightening.” I really do not think I will ever try that again. I will stick to over-the-counter stuff.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
