It is pretty amazing how those choices affect those you live with. I believe I prepared an old favorite recipe of my husband's to be nice and at his request that consisted of sour cream,yoghurt, white tortillas, and cheese and he had a horrific upset stomach and terrible indigestion. He realized he had been eating so well that those creamy and non-vegan foods were no longer really responding the same way as they used to.
I realize that once you start on a healthy path of eating right, it really makes it hard and the body feels awful when you try feeding it the wrong things again.
One of the snacks we like to keep in the house are LÄRABARs. It would be easier to make them but I usually keep them in hand for trips or to send some in my husband's lunches when he has an extra long day.
Krogers usually runs wonderful specials where they are a $1 each so I buy a whole bunch. I like the Cashew Cookie bar. I also like the Cherry pie bar.
I recently heard that the company is retiring a flavor. They have a whole line of bars called JOCALAT that use organic chocolate products. One of my super favorites was the JOCALAT Chocolate Cherry Bar.
I think that these were a delicious combination of ingredients but what can one do? Could I call the company and ask them to halt the retirement of said bar? Could I weep? Of course not! Life happens and maybe, MAYBE I would feel so inclined to make it at home.
I do have some news for you though..........
