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.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
