    Karin, I like your take on it. I have no idea why I didn't go for chocolate.


    EDIT I just realized that I'll survive the apocolypse better than the rest of you guys...more fig newtons for me. As a Spanish teacher, I must believe in the Mayan cosmology.

    Fig newtons are awesome. I used to eat those at my grandmother's house and it brings back wonderful memories. Obese ones, but good memories none the less.

    I am making beef and cabbage soup. That brings back memories of my grandmother. She made other, dessert type things (a type of fried bread-homemade dough of course, and a kind of nut roll which she had varieties of...instead of walnuts she would sometimes use onions, or purnes, or cottage cheese, depending on what was available and cheap). Both of my grandmother's only cooked from scratch, no store bought cookies, etc. So my memories with them are about making the stuff, then eating it. And the stories they would tell while we worked. But no fig newtons for me.

    Ahhh Paula, but do you eat roaches?

    Chris - I've had the chocolate covered crickets from Mexico.

    Josh - Sounds like I have to share my apocalypse newtons.

    No that's quite alright! I'm just happy remembering my childhood.

    roaches are supposed to be the only thing to survive through apocalypse, although I have a vague memory of "MythBusters" destroying that myth?

    Dried figs totally remind me of fig newtons. Of course, I have to watch the fruit (can lead to terrible sweet cravings), but every so often they really hit the spot.

    Edit: I know fig newtons have figs

    So my SIL posted on FB yesterday that she was going to try to go gluten free by changing her wheat products over to non wheat choices. I have shared Mark's Daily Apple with her, but she's afraid that she can't make that tough a transition.

    1st comment said "Studies show the brain needs gluten, just don't eat the junk carbs". This person has an MS in Health Promotion
    I responded (stupid, I know) " You know how I feel about wheat. Besides, you can get all the carbs your body needs from veg and fruit. Watch the gluten free products; they can have as much carb and sugar as wheat products. Why trade one type of garbage for another." Then I posted some web addresses.
    Other comments "Cut the sugar and fat." "Dieting is my life, PM Me." "Diets are bad"

    OMG Just kill me now.

    I spoke on the phone with my SIL later. I apologized for commenting, but reiterated that she should try to eat as clean as possible, but GF is better than wheat if she has to go there. I think her life is overwhelming right now. Wish I could help.

    Honestly I think going GF is harder, trying to figure out what you can eat and what you can't, blah blah. Just cut the sugar and flour to start, then take out the grains, then take out the starchy veggies (if you are trying to lose weight). All the while not buying things in a box. Just keep working in a progression. I have a friend who is 'gluten-free' when I first heard her tell me what she couldn't eat, I thought my brain would explode. Not sure why I thought that was any harder than this. Maybe because she was talking about substitutes.
