Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread-A Sinfully Healthy Sandwich

        I have to admit the first couple of weeks trying to get healthy were so rough. As time has passed I have learned about more and more great products that are helping me enjoy getting healthy just a bit more. Nature's Own 100% Whole Grain Bread is one of those products that I loved from bite one. Now I will sadly admit my entire life I have been a white bread kinda gal, especially covered in butter and sugar. While I have switched my kids to a gluten free lifestyle I really have not been able to go bread free.lol Today for lunch I decided to try something new with my Nature's Own I made not just a plain sandwich, but a sandwich with a little bit of veggie kick to it!
         There are many things that I like about Nature's Own bread, first I think is the texture. A lot of whole grain breads I have tried have that really grainy taste to them, and for me that is a major down side. Trying to switched from white bread I don't want to feel like I am eating a dirt cake. Nature's Own gave me that white bread texture with the health of a whole grain. I also really like how it holds up to being a sandwich, I know I know that sounds really funny but have you ever made a sandwich and it gets all soggy from the things you put on it?? No one likes that, and Nature's Own doesn't do that :) and a a fairly low calorie bread it is the perfect addition to my diet.

I used to refuse to eat Whole Wheat or Whole Grain bread, until I tried Natures Own! They really do make a great tasting bread!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
