Have you checked out eBay today?

Do a quick search on Twinkies on eBay and what do you get?  People buying Twinkies in bulk for inflated prices!!!!  Let me tell you this, we are all better off with Hostess going out of business.  So many Americans are obese and have diabetes because of this company.  My challenge to you today, eat something healthy and start healing your body.

Hostess may shut down

The buzz on the street today is that Hostess may be shutting down.  This is not good for the economy as we will have more workers that are unemployed. However I can not tell  you the last time I ate a hostess cupcake or twinkie. Have you ever read the ingredients in these things?  Not a good snack to be eating or feeding to your kids.  When is the last time you ate one of these snacks?  I know I will not be missing them.

HOW TO: Grow an Avocado Tree from Seed

This would be a fun project with the kids as they would get to see something grow from seed.  However do not expect to harvest Avocados anytime soon.  I have read up on growing avocados in the past and it can take up to 15 year for the tree to produce any fruit.

5 Habits of Highly Successful Dieters

I like strategy 5.  I started drinking decaf green tea in the morning to get over that I needed my coffee.  Yes I had caffeine withdraws

 but it was just having a hot drink that helped me get past having a cup of coffee.

Colorado Springs Brewery Tour

Phantom Canyon Brewing Co.

Made another stop on the tour tonight.  This is my third brewery that I have visited since I started.  I love my stouts so I just had to try the Zebulon’s Peated Porter.  I think I have a new favorite stout 🙂

 

Here is the descriptions from the breweries web page.

 

Rich, full bodied and robust. Smooth, with chocolate and roasted flavors balanced by subtle smoky character of peat-smoked malt.

6.1%ABV.

*CASK ALES
Cask ale is traditionally brewed and left to mature in the serving vessel. This type of ale may seem “flat” but the process that makes cask ale unique develops subtle flavors and aromas that processed beers can never provide. Because we don’t use pressurized gas to push these ales from tank to tap, it must be hand-pumped through the beer engine and aerated to produce a good head and release flavors. Served at traditional cellar temperature, cool but not chilled.

 

 

Until the next stop….
