Quoting Dakota35:

Hey Jenkneee,

If you bake cakes or similar pastries...you can substitute apple sauce for about half of the butter or margarine.  Your cake will be much more moist and if you can tell the difference, it will only be for the better.  Surely apple sauce can't be bad for us?

 

Another sweetener that you can use is Erythritol...it sounds bad but it's made from fruit.  If you buy Stevia products many times Erythritol will be added to help cut the slight bitter...which I think comes from a lower quality refining process.  I bought 10 lbs of Erythritol to use in my tea (you know southerners love their syrup tea) :)  But I didn't like it much...it was sweet but had a cool-ish after taste, kind of strange.  I need to try it in a homemade cake.

 

 

 


Hey Hey All You  "Margarine Mayhem" Followers!

 

Yep PAT- Throw the dry creamer out!! I hadn't heard of flour before though as DAKOTA mentioned---

 

**Heads to kitchen to see what I can start a fire with! LOL.. 

 

Speaking of DAKOTA--- Long time no see.. Hope all is well... 

 

I have heard of the apple sauce trick, but always forget about it.  

 

I just looked up Mottts applesauce.. 

 

For all you health conscious individuals.. 

 

MOTTS original NATURAL apple sauce has NOTHING but apples, water and Vitamin c.. ;)

 

If you get the non-natural sauce, there is fructose corn syrup added, so make sure it's all natural!

 

WINDY--- It makes you wonder what the heck we are eating!! I do love my butter! I was the contestant who "churn tampered" with Rose's churn for her "Bitter Butter-queen Memories!" Bwahahahaha! Man I wish they would allow us LINKS here.. Everybody youtube Golden Girls Rose bitter butter memories! HILARIOUS!!

 

Don't they homogonize milk so it lasts? In the "old days" when milk was delivered to your door, that was milk like DAKOTA drank, right? Non-homogenized. DAKOTA0- did your mom heat (pasturize) it first for bacteria? I LOVE MILK, and I drink it WHOLE! Never had it natural... I'm sure it does taste different.

 

BEWELL that just goes to show not to mess with nature. I think part of the problem with societies health issues is in all the processes we use. 

 

JEN- Now I want to try natural milk.. I found a place called Erhlers that delivers to your door in glass bottles! They don't skim the cream off top like DAK mentioned though. They say to shake it up in it. 

 

I'm a MILK and EGG girl myself! 

 

HAIL TO THE DAIRY FARMER!!

Hi Dakota, how ya doing?

 

  Thanks for the info, I will definitely keep the applesauce in mind and will research where I can get ERYTHRITOL asap!  I bought this big box of packets of stevia at costco and am disappointed in the bitter taste. The only thing I use it in is my coffee and have to use some sugar with it,a small amount of sugar but the point of having it was so I wouldnt have to use ANY sugar in my coffee. Now if I could only find someone to split my bulk purchases :)  Thanks so much for the info.!

 

I have an idea of how to use half the amount of sugar that I use now in my favorite cookies. I am going to replace some of the sugar with dates finely chopped up. I have never used dates as a substitute before, we will see what happens.

 

So it's Sweet Tea for you huh :) I only barely sweeten one type of tea, my Yorkshire Gold and use a little bit of milk, every other tea I don't, my lipton tea is never sweetened. Just the way I roll.  Do you think anyone in the "showcase/ luxuries" will appreciate my teacup collection?  Lol. I don't think so!

Quoting Curious2078:

Creamer for coffee will ignite????

 

Yikes.  I'm throwing mine out.  I only use it once a week or so when I can't stand no longer having hazelnut flavored coffee.  But, now, I'm afraid I'll have to wait to be able to buy the hazelnut flavored coffee instead.



I haven't tried to ignite creamer...but flour dust in the air will ignite...as I would imagine many airborne organics may.  So, I'm sure creamer isn't good for the body {vegetable-based fats along with fructose (corn syrup)}, but if it is ignited in the same way, I wouldn't be that concerned.  Dust type explosions such as in sugar mills have killed and injured many people, but not by oral consumption.

 

Here's a experiment I did as a kid.  Take a coffee can, put a small amount of flower in the can, cut a hole in the top, run a tube through the top so that when placed on the can the tube end almost makes contact with the flower.  Place a small lit candle in the can.  Put on the lid, then blow with your mouth (on the other end of tube) so that the flower will make dust in the can...it will be ignited and there will be a nice little explosion because of the containment.  Make sure your tube is long enough that it doesn't ignite in your face...most would consider that a bad thing.  No Curious, I don't really think you are going to try this...just proving my point.

Quoting Jenkneee:

All the replacements I used to use that I thought were good for me and the ""better choices" are all bad if not poisonous for our bodies.

Aspartame is in so many food products and of course, I used a couple of sugar substitutes containing it instead of sugar or a healthy alternative like honey :(

Yes to butter!! Within reason of course.

 

Great, informative post, thanks OP.

Quoting BeWell:

Here's another one....

 

I have some friends who are retired dairy farmers. They told me that baby calfs will die if fed homoginized milk. The homoginization process disables the ability in the milk for the nutrients to go where they need to go in the calfs body, and the calfs basically die of starvation. Isn't THAT interesting? ........... BeWell



I can tell you this, I grew up on a farm.  My mom would go out every morning and afternoon to milk the cow.  The milk was then strained and put into gallon containers and placed in the fridge.  The cream would rise to the top, when cold, and then we would skim it off (didn't want all that fat, it was good in chocolate milk though).  From a baby (seriously) I grew up drinking milk straight from the cow.  My mom took me to the doc., he said "What kind of formula are you feeding him" My mom told him cows milk straight from the cow.  He looked funny and said "Well, it's not hurting him"  For years I never drank milk from the store.  When I did, it taste horrible.  Funny thing is, that I'm not a huge guy but I've always been about twice or more physically stronger than the average guy.  I've made big guys look like fools in the gym.  I contribute that in some ways to all the "real" milk I drank growing up...whether that is true or not.  I believe that processing of milk kills many of the nutrients.  On the flip side, I know milk raises histamine levels...which has been bad for me.  Forgot something, I've never had a cavity...I've been to the dentist 2 times in my life.  I'm missing 1 wisdom tooth but not from a cavity.

That is interesting! 

 

There seems to be a war to close down raw milk producers. It's sad.

 

 

On another note; Here in California,our last voting opportunity included a bill that all GMO food would have to be labeled as such.  You would think it was a guaranteed majority of yes votes but no, according to whoever, it didn't pass. I have to wonder if it was rigged not to pass.

Hi Brittany,
 
Just goes to show what good advertising will do...you can sell anything with a good marketing team. As a former dairy farmer...thanks for trying to set a few people straight on this issue. I want nothing to do with the crap, and people should feel pretty silly that marketing hype talked them into using something a chicken wouldn't touch. Personally, I don't touch the stuff. Even as a kid we knew real dairy products were healthier than something contrived in a laboratory.
 
I suppose since the flies won't touch it, one of these days we'll be seeing mosquito deterrent made out of the stuff!

I read that long ago and ever since,,, I am a butter queen! 

I learned in basic fire training--

You know the dry creamer some use in coffee? 

It will catch fire if you ignite!! 

It's amazing what we put in our bodies!!

Which is why I gave up margarine a long, long time ago.  In fact, I gave it up after the first time I tasted it back in the early 60's.  It TASTED like plastic to me, I wasn't fond of that taste at all.

 

BTW, Counselor, you have two blogs up now.  Are you in danger of becoming a BLOG HOG?

 

ROFLMAO

 

Thanks so much for chiming in so much here, Britt.  We need you to do so for sure.
